How It Works
The Austin Air HealthMate Plus Junior air purifier uses a three-stage filtration process to help capture particles, odors, heavy chemicals and smoke. Air first passes through a pre-filter designed to capture large particles. This pre-filter should be cleaned once a month, depending on use and environment. After the bigger particles are removed, the air passes through six-and-a-half pounds of a treated carbon blend specifically designed to remove harmful chemicals and odors. A true HEPA medical filter is the last layer, which traps 99.97% of all particles larger than 0.3 microns and 95% of all particles larger than 0.1 microns.
See our Chemical Air Purifier Guide to compare air purifiers for chemicals.
Who Needs It
This is a great solution for those looking to remove heavy odors, chemicals and smoke or for those suffering from asthma or allergies. With six-and-a-half pounds of carbon impregnated with potassium iodide, plus zeolite, it targets heavy odors and chemicals such as Radon, Benzene and Formaldehyde (found in glues and sealants). The carbon also removes smoke from cigarettes, cigars and wood burning stoves. If you are looking for a solution to help with MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivity) we recommend the standard Austin Air Healthmate Junior model.
