Austin Air HM250 Healthmate plus Jr work mechanism
Austin Air HM250 Healthmate plus Jr works with a 4 stage filtration process. There are 4 layers of filters for this air purifier. The air is drawn inside by the powerful fan through all around the air purifier. The purified air is blown out through the top area of the air purifier.
- The primary layer is the perforated steel cover of the air purifier. The larger air particles like dust, hair or the pet dander are caught in this perforated steel cover. This pre filter is operating all around the air purifier for faster and maximum air filtration.
- The air will then enter the permafilter layer where the medium sized air particles that are invisible for naked eye are caught. The different pollens in the air, dust mites, mold, and spores etc are filtered here in this layer of the Austin Air HM250 Healthmate plus Jr.
- The True medical grade HEPA filter will filter almost 99% of the particles that are up to the size of 0.3 microns and about 95% of the other smaller air particles. The bacteria, viruses and other micro organisms are also got rid at this stage of the air purification by the Austin Air HM250 Healthmate plus Jr super blend air purifier.
- The last and final stage of air purification is done by the 6.5 lbs of activated carbon filter that also has the additional help from zeolite and potassium iodide. The activated carbon itself is an adsorbing material where the odor causing chemicals are trapped in the minute perforations on the activated carbon. With the addition of the zeolite and potassium iodide, the adsorption surface is increased many folds for even deeper air filtration and removal of maximum chemicals.
Zeolite is a volcanic mineral that is made of silica and aluminum. This material along with the potassium iodide can catch more chemicals from the air than the zeolite alone. The zeolite makes an excellent adsorption material on which the chemicals attach themselves to. With the potassium iodide impregnated, this efficacy is doubled to give a thorough air scrubbing to result in the purer air quality.
