How Austin Air Purifiers Work
The diagram demonstrates how air circulates through the Austin Air Cleaner during the filtration process.
Shown is the Austin HealthMate Series with the super-quiet permanent split capacitor motor. Air enters 360 degrees from the surrounding room. Behind the steel outer grill lies the fibrous PERMAFILTTM pre-filter, which traps large airborne particles.
The air then passes into the primary filter element. It first passes through packed carbon/zeolite, removing gases and odors. Then 60 square feet of pleated true medical HEPA medium removes sub-micron particulates including dust mites, dust, pollens, mold spores, pet dander, and other allergens - the contaminants most injurious to health.
Pure clean air is finally expelled by the centrifugal fan in one direction from the louvered top deck. This uni-directional air flow from the unit avoids contaminant-laden floor areas, and allows the air flow to be directed at will.
