Frequently Asked Questions
The Aurabeat AG+ Sanitizing Air Purifier combines patent pending technology with a high efficiency HEPA Grade filter coupled with ultraviolet and plasma triple air sanitization technology for the ultimate in virus and bacteria controls. Additionally, a Nano-crystalline filter helps filter out harmful gases, formaldehyde, benzene, VOC’s, and odor from the air. The AG+ technology has passed multiple third-party tests in a virology laboratory and confirmed that it can eliminate ≥99.9% of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) in 15 minutes as proven by testing at MRIGlobal lab in the US.
MRIGlobal, the Kansas City-based, independent, not-for-profit contract research organization, known for customized solutions in national security, global health and security, has deep expertise in biosafety and biorisk management. Using its specialized and certified laboratories, MRIGlobal conducted independent lab tests using live aerosolized Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Corona Virus (the virus that causes SARS-CoV-2). Testing concluded the AG+ Sanitizing Air Purifier effectively eliminates ≥99.9% of SARS-CoV-2 virus (the virus that causes Covid-19) within 15 minutes.
MRIGlobal is an independent, not-for-profit research organization with expertise in biosafety and biorisk management that operates its own research laboratories as well as facilities for the U.S. Dept. of Energy and Dept. of Defense. Since 1944, MRI Global has managed testing for a broad range of American and International clients, including the DOD, CDC; NIH; USDA; DHHS; DEA; FDA; and EPA.
The US virology laboratory MRI Global used live COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) that can infect human respiratory tract cells for actual testing and certification and has proven that Aurabeat’s patent pending technology can effectively eliminate SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes Covid-19) that can infect human respiratory tract cells in a short time.
No. Our technology does not affect human health negatively. Additionally, the plasma generator in the machine does not cause detectable ozone and the machine is certified by the California Air Resources Board (CARB Certified) so the product is extremely safe to use and there is test data that shows this for the filters, technology, and machine.
Suggested use is up to one year and the high efficiency Grade HEPA filter will remain effective in normal use so long as the accumulation of dust and debris is manageable. The pre-filter helps protect and keep the HEPA filter active to capture viruses and bacteria. The full set (pre-filter, HEPA grade high efficiency filter, and Nano-crystalline) come in a single set and should be replaced at least annually to maintain performance and can be replaced more quickly in areas of high use or where there may be a higher degree of airborne pollutants.
While the UV lamp can help to reduce bacteria and viruses in the air – it’s main purpose is to continuously irradiate and sanitize the inside of the machine to help with overall sanitizing for the inside of the air purifier. This is also a detail that many air purifiers on the market ignore.
Air filters or air purifiers on the market advertise that they can capture PM 0.1 is yet another trick to mislead consumers. Due to physical factors, the efficiency of high-efficiency air filters to capture PM 0.1 is higher than that of PM 0.3, which is why many international test standards for air filters, such as ASHRAE 52.2, EN 1822, etc., require testing the filtration efficiency of PM 0.3 instead PM 0.1. The high-efficiency Grade HEPA filter of Aurabeat AG+ Sanitizing Air Purifier filters PM 0.3 with an effect of 99.7%, so the efficiency of filtering PM 0.1 is actually much higher than 99.7%. For more details on this, please refer to the book: Hinds, 1999, Aerosol Technology.
Nano-crystalline filter is a new generation of deodorization material compared to traditional activated carbon. Because activated carbon will split into fine carbon powder, it may enter the air and increase the level of suspended particles, but this will not happen with Nano-crystalline material.
Aurabeat Sanitizing Air Purifier has an effective protection area of 538 sq feet. At an area of 538 sq feet and a height of 8.2 feet, the highest wind speed achieve an air change and air disinfection of 3.4 times per hour.
The machine and technology does not produce disinfection sprays or any chemical by-products including any significant detectable levels of ozone (CARB Certified!) and the product is safe and effective to use with proven known technologies.
The suggested use and available area of the AG+ sanitizing air purifier is 1655 square feet, and the airflow rate of the machine ensures 3.4 air change per hour, i.e. the room air will be circulated, sanitized, and purified more than 3 times per hour. Efficient triple sanitizing technology can cater for any reasonable number of people in the room.
The AG + Sanitizing Air Purifier has a smart mode. It uses a precise sensor to monitor indoor air pollutant levels and adjust the airflow rate. Even under the highest airflow rate, the noise level is very low rated at a max of 62 dB.
Absolutely. The AG+ Sanitizing Air Purifier is a highly efficient air purification system. The HEPA Grade Filter effectively removes >99.7% of particles 0.3 down to 0.01 microns along with general virus, bacteria, pollutants, and molds. The specialized Nanocrystalline Filter removes harmful gasses, formaldehyde, benzene, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and odors while the UV Disinfection Lamp helps sanitize the air, surface of the filters and the inside of the unit. Lastly, the Plasma Generator and Sanitization generates both positive and negative ions to eliminate microorganisms.
Yes, most allergens caused asthma and respiratory allergies are caused by particulate pollutants. Other than efficiently eliminate virus and microorganism, our high efficiency air filter can remove >99.7% of particulate pollutants from air, making it effective to relief asthma and respiratory allergies.
It’s called the NSP-X1
The filters will last a minimum of 5 years as long as they are sealed in the plastic bag package.
