Frequently Asked Questions
How can AURABEAT AG+ help with air purification?
Aurabeat AG+ Silver Ion Plasma Sterilization Air Purifier, combined with silver ion, ultraviolet and plasma triple air disinfection technology, passed a third-party test in a virology laboratory, and confirmed that it can eliminate> 82% of coronaviruses that can infect human respiratory cells in 10 minutes.
Where are AURABEAT and general air purifiers on the market?
Some filters in the market do not have the function of eliminating viruses. When replacing the filter or moving the machine, the dust, particulate matters, and viruses accumulated on the surface of the filter element will easily raise and re-enter the air, causing secondary infection.
Aurabeat AG+ Silver Ion Plasma Sterilization Air Purifier can effectively eliminate the bacteria and viruses captured on the filter in a short time, greatly reducing the risk of secondary infection.
What are the differences between AURABEAT's three-layer disinfection technology and the double protection by most of the producers on the market?
Even though most air purifiers on the market have two filtration mechanisms, most of them can only filter dust particles and remove odours. The triple disinfection and double purification technology of Aurabeat AG+ Silver Ion Plasma Sterilization Air Purifier can effectively eliminate bacteria and viruses, and remove fine dust particles and suspended particles, odours, formaldehyde and harmful gases.
Can it eliminate human coronavirus causing the new pneumonia?
The US virology laboratory uses coronaviruses that can also infect human respiratory tract cells for actual testing and certification, and has proven that Aurabeat’s silver ion technology can effectively eliminate coronaviruses that can infect human respiratory tract cells in a short time.
Some brands on the market have a variety of common virus test reports such as H1N1, enterovirus, etc. Does AURABEAT plan to obtain more virus test reports?
Due to global concerns about coronaviruses, coronaviruses will still be our focus of testing, and other viruses that are harmful to humans will be used for testing after the pandemic.
Is AURABEAT a medical grade purifier?
Medical-grade air purifier are certified by the US FDA, but the relevant certifications are not aimed at disinfecting air or eliminating viruses in the air.
Will AURABEAT's silver ion technology affect the human body?
No. Since our unique silver ion technology does not release silver ions into the air, the silver ions are coated onto the filter layer of the filter element, and will not be inhaled into the lungs, nor absorbed by the skin, and the technology does not affect human health.
What is the difference between AURABEAT's silver ion and plasma technology?
The silver ion technology quickly and efficiently eliminates bacteria and viruses that are captured on the filter, effectively reducing the risk of secondary infection; while the plasma disinfection layer can quickly and efficiently eliminate microorganism escaping the filter and decompose toxic carcinogenic gases (formaldehyde and other volatile organic compounds). The two technologies complement each other to achieve highly efficient air disinfection.
AURABEAT is not equipped with HEPA filter, will the filtering function be poor?
The filtration efficiency of the HEPA filter is 99.95%, and the filtration efficiency of the H12 filter used by the Aurabeat AG+ Silver Ion Plasma Sterilization Air Purifier is 99.5%, so the difference between the two is only less than 0.5%. Also, the general HEPA filter does not have antiviral property, so the high-efficiency silver ion air filter of Aurabeat AG+ Silver Ion Plasma Sterilization Air Purifier is even better.
AG+ NSP- X1 is equipped with three different filters, what are their life and do they have any maintenance needs?
• Pre-filter: captures hair, fiber, particles, dander, etc., can be vacuumed and reused. It should be used and disposed of with the High-Efficiency Silver Ion Air Filter.
• High-Efficiency Silver Ion Air Filter: 99.5% filtration efficiency for PM0.3. The filter combined with silver ions can effectively kill human coronavirus, general virus, bacteria, and mould. The High-Efficiency Silver Ion Air Filter generally needs to be replaced after 6 to 8 months of usage. The product has a smart timer reminder. After 2000 hours of use, you can check if the filter is still clean. A clean filter can be reused for 2000 hours. If the filter becomes grey/black, it needs to be replaced.
• Nano-crystalline Filter: Natural non-metallic minerals are used to remove harmful gases, formaldehyde, benzene, VOC, and odor from the air. The Nano-crystalline Filter can be cleaned by exposure to sunlight for 1 to 3 hours every 2 months, then it can be reused. Under normal usage, it can be used for one year before it needs to be replaced.
AUREBEAT is equipped with a UV disinfection lamp. How long does it take to kill bacteria?
The UV lamp can eliminate bacteria and viruses in the air, and it continuously irradiates at the inside of the machine to help disinfect the inside of the purifier. This is also a detail that many air purifiers on the market ignore.
Many air purifiers have a humidification function to increase the indoor air humidity. Does AURABEAT also have it?
Aurabeat AG+ Silver Ion Plasma Sterilization Air Purifier does not affect the indoor air humidity. If the indoor air humidity is too high, it will be easier for bacteria and mold growth.
Now that the new coronavirus can survive on the object for 24 hours, how long does AURABEAT need to kill the bacteria?
Aurabeat AG+ Silver Ion Plasma Sterilization Air Purifier specializes in disinfecting the air. Our unique silver ion technology has been proven to eliminate> 82% of human coronavirus in 10 minutes.
Compared to other air purifiers using disinfectant to kill bacteria, what are the pros and cons of AURABEAT’s silver ion technology?
Many air purifiers claimed with antimicrobial air filter on the market simply put disinfectant onto the air filter, while disclosing the bacteria elimination efficiency of the disinfectant instead of the air filter/air purifier. Many disinfectants will damage the air filter fibers structure and lower its filtration performance. Also, after the disinfectant evaporated or dried, the antimicrobial performance will be greatly reduced. Aurabeat AG+, however, directly send our silver ion air filter media for the third-party virology test, instead of testing a disinfectant to mislead customers.
There are individual brands of purifiers advertised on the market that can capture pollutants as small as PM0.1. Compared with AURABEAT, can it only capture PM0.3? Is efficiency worse than PM0.1?
Air filters or air purifiers on the market advertise that they can capture PM0.1 is yet another trick to mislead consumers. Due to physical factors, the efficiency of high-efficiency air filters to capture PM 0.1 is higher than that of PM 0.3, which is why many international test standards for air filters, such as ASHRAE 52.2, EN 1822, etc., require testing the filtration efficiency of PM 0.3 instead PM 0.1. The high-efficiency silver ion filter of Aurabeat AG+ Silver Ion Plasma Sterilization Air Purifier filters PM 0.3 with an effect of 99.7%, so the efficiency of filtering PM 0.1 is higher than 99.7%. For more details on this, please refer to the book: Hinds, 1999, Aerosol Technology.
Many purification machines on the market are equipped with activated carbon filters for deodorization. How does it compare with the filtration efficiency of AURABEAT's Nano-crystalline filter?
Nano-crystalline filter is a new generation of deodorization material compared to activated carbon. Because activated carbon will split into fine carbon powder, it may enter the air and increase the level of suspended particles, but this will not happen with Nano-crystalline material.
Replacing air filters often causes secondary pollution. How does AURABEAT handle this problem?
When replacing the filter element or moving the machine, the dust, suspended particles, and viruses that accumulate on the surface of the filter element can be easily detached from the air filter and re-enter the air, causing a secondary infection. Aurabeat AG+ Silver Ion Plasma Sterilization Air Purifier can effectively eliminate the bacteria and viruses captured on the filter element in a short time, greatly reducing the risk of secondary infection.
Many air purifiers on the market advertise that the filter can be washed to reuse. How can the different filters of AURABEAT be cleaned? If they cannot be washed, will they be less effective?
Filters that can be washed with water are only low/medium grade filters. The filters used in infectious wards, isolation wards, operating rooms, etc. are not washable filters, because those washable low/medium-grade filters do not have good enough filtration efficiency, especially in filtering nano-scale viruses.
If I want to replace the filter, where can I buy it?
Can be ordered from distributors or our official website.
How many times can AURABEAT ventilate in the corresponding environment?
At an area of 538 feet and a height of 2.5 meters, the lowest wind speed can achieve an air change of 1.3 times per hour, and the highest wind speed achieve an air change of 3.4 times per hour.
How long would NSP-X1 last?
The High Efficiency Silver Ion Air Filter generally needs to be replaced after 6 to 8 months of usage. The product has a smart timer reminder. After 2000 hours of use, you can check if the filter is still clean. Clean filter can be reused for 2000 hours. If the filter becomes grey/black, it needs to be replaced.
The Nano-crystalline Filter can be cleaned by exposure to sunlight for 1 to 3 hours every 2 months, then it can be reused. Under normal usage, it can be used for one year before it needs to be replaced.
How much are the filters?
