We are asked a lot of questions in regards to the effectiveness of the Aeramax Professional Air Purifier system. We have compiled the most asked questions below.
Aeramax 3 & 4 are in stock in Dublin at S & S, We have no delays due to Covid 19 or any shipping or price increases due to Brexit.
Question: Our indoor air quality is checked several times a year, and the air quality is good. Why would I need an AeraMax Professional?
Answer: Even the cleanest facilities can have multiple areas that are sources of constant contamination. Anywhere that people gather, airborne contaminants can be generated—and, unfortunately, shared. These areas include toilets, classrooms, waiting areas, healthcare settings, childcare and nursery facilities, cafeterias, common rooms, and crowded office areas.
Many of these areas, such as toilets and cafeterias, can also be constant sources of odor.
Question: How often do the filters need to be replaced?
Answer: The replacement filter indicators will signal when to replace the HEPA filter(s) and/or carbon filters(s). The replacement period will vary depending on the hours of use and air quality. However, under normal operating conditions, filter life is estimated to be the following:
- 50mm HEPA filter: 2 years
- Carbon filter with pre-filter: 6 months
- 50mm carbon filter: 12 – 18 months
- Hybrid filter: 12 months
Please note that the original HEPA filter shipped with the units should be replaced after 12 months.
Question: How does the PlasmaTRUE™ bipolar ioniser help clean the air?
Answer: The PlasmaTRUE™ bipolar ioniser produces clusters of positive and negative (bipolar) ions. These charged ions are dispersed into the air, and electrically charge airborne particles so that they attach to nearby surfaces and to one another, and settle faster. Charging and clustering airborne particles, enhances removal by filtration. Also, the ions react with oxygen and water vapor present in the air to create free radicals. The free radicals, in turn, can create chemical changes.
For example, they damage microorganisms (e.g., bacteria, viruses, and molds) and break down odours and VOCs.

Question: Why is AeraMax Professional better suited for public and shared spaces compared to other purifiers?
Answer: AeraMax Professional has patented sensor technology that automatically adjusts the unit based on conditions in the room to optimise purification and energy efficiency. No monitoring by staff is required.
Systems also have a vandal resistant design. Controls and filters cannot be accessed without unlocking the unit. The purifier filters, housing, motor, and balanced fan are all commercial-grade to hold up to the rigors of public and shared spaces.
Question: What if we already have an HVAC system to address germs?
Answer: In addition to germs, AeraMax Professional controls constant sources of odour utilising activated carbon filtration. This makes it ideal for placement in toilets, eating areas, break rooms, and areas where cleaning chemicals may be stored. Systems also recirculate a room’s air, significantly diluting concentrations of any airborne contaminant. This circulation also helps balance the room’s ambient temperature.
Question: How is the product different from filters in the existing HVAC today?
Answers: AeraMax Professional is designed to complement HVAC systems by filtering air at the source of the contaminant. Also, most HVAC systems do not utilise HEPA filtration, which captures airborne contaminants as small as 0.3 microns including viruses, bacteria, and other airborne contaminants. HVAC systems may not have activated carbon filters to remove odour and volatile organic compounds, or bipolar ionisers to reduce airborne contaminants.
Question: Are there any other competitors or like items in the market?
Answer: We are not aware of any self-regulating air purifiers designed specifically for shared and public spaces that clean air using HEPA and activated carbon filtration, and bipolar ionisation.
