HEPA filtration technology explained

What are HEPA filters?

HEPA filters are used in air purifiers to remove microscopic particles from the air. Similar to the filter in your vacuum or car, the filter is built in a wave shape. The material is meshed-glass fiber mats designed to stop nearly all airborne particles measuring 0.1 microns or larger. With 99.95% success, a HEPA filter will capture dust, pollen, bacteria, virus, dust mites, mold, excrement and other allergens from the air. HEPA filtration is the gold standard for air purification systems. They are used the world over in hospital operating rooms and intensive care units, where clean air can be the difference between life and death. Mobile air purifiers utilizing HEPA filtration bring the highest quality air into your living and work space.

HEPA filters ranked H13 and H14 provide clinical environment quality and effectiveness.

HEPA is the abbreviated way of saying, high efficiency particulate air. For an air purification system to be used in a medical environment, it must have either an H13 or H14*** filter. This is a degree of separation from a standard purifying system. The higher the number the more dense the filter.
H13*** filters can absorb microns as small as 0.1 (PM 0.1) with an effectiveness rate of 99.95%. H14*** filters guarantee the same performance with a safety rating of 99.995%. Both filters are highly efficient and within the range of standard practices for a clinical environment.
HEPA filtration ensures you breathe nothing but clean, refreshing, safe air.
HEPA filters must be certified

HEPA filters must be certified

Strict laboratory tests are performed to confirm medical quality.

Air purifiers with HEPA filtration can be trusted to keep you healthy. The technology behind the filter’s efficacy has been examined, tested and certified to confirm each filter produced using said technology meets the requirements for HEPA H13 or H14***, the medical standard for highly-effective filtering performance.
Certified highly-efficient for their filtration performance, the HEPA filters in aeirs air purifiers
Air purifiers from aeris by iRobot come standard with an H13 or HEPA H14*** filter (depending on model). This technology alone is certified to permanently clean microorganisms, chemicals, harmful particles and allergens from the air you breathe at work or at home.

* CADR - The clean air delivery rate measures the air exchange rate, based on room volume, at the highest operating level
** Surface cleaning performance based on the highest operating level and at a maximum ceiling height of 2.40 m with two air exchanges, or cleaning cycles, of the room’s volume/hour.

Molecular filters are a perfect complement to a HEPA filter.

Activated carbon, zeolite and alumina form a molecular filter to combat gases and odors.

Molecular filters trap matter, such as gas or odor, that is suspended in the air. This means your aerisÒ device not only cleans the air of harmful particles but unpleasant ones as well. This one-two punch to microscopic pollutants is the knockout way to keep your air breathable and fresh!

Healthy, harmless air in minutes

Molecular filters are a sign of high-quality in an air purification system. If your goal is combating odors, say from that teenager taking up residence on the second floor, or the moisture in the basement caused by your washing machine, then a molecular filter is a must-have in your air filtration system.

Did you know…

Air purifiers with HEPA filters are essential to the modern home

The aeris by iRobot air purification system works in three steps. The first filter gets rid of coarse particles such as dust and pollen. The HEPA filter picks up any microscopic particles not captured in the first chamber. The Molecular filter then neutralizes any airborne gases, odors and chemicals, to provide you with nothing but fresh, clean breathable air.

HEPA filters collect and retain particles. That makes it necessary to replace them on a regular basis. The average HEPA filter lifespan is 2-3 years depending on model, and the space where your aeris by iRobot air purification system is utilized.
