The air purifiers known on the market are generally effective in filtering and improving the overall air quality and can be installed in rooms where filtration is usually not possible, but they do not protect 100% against viruses. Indeed, thanks to a high air renewal rate and high filtration, viruses are captured and filtered but they remain active.
The new range of AP BIO Air Purifiers from FläktGroup is the best way to combat airborne transmission of viruses and bacteria in almost any closed environment. Thanks to our revolutionary AirFend™ filtration technology, viruses and bacteria are nearly 100% deactivated – including Sars-CoV-2 – when air passes through the filters in the unit. AirFend™ is a 100% natural solution.
The technology used makes it possible to filter and decontaminate the air in the room through a vacuum chamber, containing a bio-decontaminating agent AirFend™ composed of extracts of plant substances without toxicological classification. This bactericidal, fungicidal and virucidal agent is active in particular on Sars-CoV-2 but also on all families of viruses.
Depending on the air flow rate used (which is adjustable) of the AP BIO air purifier, it can treat different volumes of air associated with the size of each room(bedrooms, recovery rooms, resuscitation rooms, offices, schools, nurseries, etc.). It can also process ISO classified areas. With the AP BIO Air Purifier, you can also purify a defined area in a few minutes in deactivation mode (ex: leave the air purifier at a flow rate of 2400 m3/h for 5 min to purify an area of 60 m2).
The AP BIO purifier draws the air from the room in order to retain the particles, microbes, viruses and bacteria which pass through a first filtration barrier ePM1 50% (F7) and then through a second filtration barrier H14 (absolute filter) which is impregnated with the bio-decontaminating solution AirFend™ in the form of a 100% natural powder in order to neutralize viruses and bacteria.
The AP BIO air purifier has two air inlets at the top that increase the filtration surface area in order to purify as much air as possible.
In France, laboratory tests have shown that the AirFend™ solution applied to the filters of the AP BIO air purifier has a virucidal action including on the H1N1 influenza virus and the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) according to the test protocol of standard EN 14476.
