Incineration Air Purifiers
What is an incineration air purifier?
An incineration style air purifier is very simple. Air within the sterilization chamber is heated to a very high temperature that is sufficient to kill harmful microorganisms like bacteria and viruses just as you would sterilize surgical instruments, etc. The working part of an incineration-style air purifier is a ceramic incineration chamber (or a group of them). The chambers heat the air to temperatures of about 400 degrees Fahrenheit/250 degrees Celsius. The air then rises, drawing new, cool air in by creating a convection current. While the air is passing through the chambers, contaminants in the air are incinerated (burned) and thereby destroyed.
What contaminants do incineration air purifiers remove?
Incineration air purifiers are designed primarily to kill bacteria and viruses and other harmful microorganisms.
Benefits of Incineration Air Purifier Technology
- rated #1 by our experts for bacteria and virus removal, while also offering decent general allergen control
- completely silent
- no filters to replace, low maintenance
- wide body of scientific testing supports effectiveness claims of manufacturers
Negatives of Incineration Air Purifier Technology
- since the incineration air purifiers rely solely on passive convection to move air through the ceramic incineration chambers, it does not process air nearly as quickly as a traditional HEPA filter. Accordingly, it takes longer to achieve the desired contaminant reduction; although, once achieved, it is generally easy to maintain. It may take up to 10 days to achieve 70-90% contaminant reduction.
