The Generation X is our Purifier of choice for the smaller surgical rooms operating quietly and efficiently at speed settings 1 and 2, with the option for a ultra high performance speed 3 making this ideal for surgical spaces that only do the occasional long AGP.
This unit gives the clear impression to your patients and staff that you are operating a clinical air purification system compared to a domestic equivalent. Made of strong white acrylic, this unit is built to take the bumps and knocks of daily thoroughfare of a dental surgery and easily wipes down using standard cleaning products used in practice.
Although this unit is capable of 727 m3 CADR, it is not recommended to operate this unit at speed setting 3 continuously as this will deplete the filter quickly. For consistent higher CADR, we would advise looking at either our Generation Y or Generation Z models which are capable of high CADR output at lower speed settings. Not sure if the Generation X is for you, speak to one of our specialists today!
The clean air delivery rates (CADR) for all speed settings for this unit have been externally validated to ISO:14644. Removing the requirement to add 50% as per the BDA guidelines
Designed For Clinical Use
Made of strong white acrylic, the look of this purifier emphasises to your patients and staff that you have a clinical solution in place while being robust so as to withstand usual bumps and knocks.
This units wipes clean easily using standard cleaning products.
HEPA 13 – Medical Grade Filter
HEPA 13 is a medical grade air filter that captures 99.97% of airborne particles as a size of 0.3 microns. This is the minimum standard required to filter out Covid-19
UV-C is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (ultraviolet C or UV-C) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions.
Ionizers use a high voltage electrical current across a set of plates that sit in the direct path of the air flow. This results in a one plate that now has a strong negative change high. At any given time, there are millions of small bits floating through the air such as skin cells, moisture, dust, vaporised material etc called particulates. As these partials move they rub against each other and air partials and similar to rubbing a balloon on someone’s hair, this means it gains a static charge. This static charge (either positive or negative) causes the particulates to be attracted to the plate of the opposite charge, upon colliding with the charges plates, the particulates instantly loose their charge and form a precipitate (they collect in the filter).
In addition, this releases a high volume of negative charge into the air itself known as ions (loose electrons), these continue to have a sterilising effect to the surrounding air.
Activated Carbon / Charcoal filter
Carbon air filters are the filters most commonly used to remove gases. They are designed to filter gases through a bed of activated carbon (also called activated charcoal) and are usually used to combat volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released from common household products. They are also often used to remove odors from the air, such as the smell of tobacco smoke. They cannot remove fine particles like mould, dust, or pollen from the air. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). Carbon air filters can be effective at filtering VOCs from the air. These are gaseous substances that most other mechanical filters like HEPA filters, cannot touch. Some of the gases in cigarette smoke or those given off by drying paint or cleaning products can be removed from the air by a carbon filter. Benzene, toluene, xylene, and some chlorinated compounds are among those that may be removed by carbon filters.
