AUSTIN AIR PURIFIER



Austin Air purifiers are highly recommended by allergists and medical professionals as they are designed to quickly and efficiently remove allergens, irritants, bacteria and viruses from indoor air. By investing in an Austin air purifier, you can protect your patients, customers, staff, and medical professionals from the dangerous spread of airborne contaminants. Austin Air purifiers also remove the particles that can damage lungs and exacerbate allergy and asthma symptoms.

Austin Air Purifier

Eliminate airborne infectious agents

Bacterial, viral and fungal particles are introduced into the air in the course of treating patients. The human mouth can harbor more than 350 different types of bacteria. Drilling into teeth, bones, and tissues can disperse microbes from saliva and blood into the air. These fine droplets can stay airborne for hours, creating a source of potential infection for staff and patients alike.

 
  

Eliminate bio-aerosols

Ultrasonic instruments and the constant need to disinfect surfaces create bio-aerosols that decrease air quality. These particles, along with fine and ultra-fine particles, reach deep into lungs and can be absorbed into the bloodstream, which is unhealthy for patients and even worse for the dental professionals who are exposed to these particles every day.

 

Eliminate odours, chemicals and VOC’s

Mercury vapors can enter the air when amalgam fillings are removed. These vapors and other odours present in most dental practices can be a major source of patient anxiety.

WHY AUSTIN AIR PURIFIERS:

Industry experience

We operate one of the largest air purifier manufacturing facilities in the world at 480,000 square feet and have been the North American market leader in the air cleaning industry or over 30 years.

Industry experience

Our air purifiers are manufactured in Buffalo, NY and distributed across Canada from our location in Waterloo, Ontario.

Trusted partners

We are recognized and used by FEMA, American Red Cross, US Army, Government of California, and Health Canada.

Quality craftsmanship

Our air purifiers are built with a 23 gauge steel unit body, 23 gauge steel filter body, and non-toxic powder coated, water based paint that doesn’t off-gas.

Superior performance

Our air purifiers provide 4 stages of filtration using a medical grade MERV-17 HEPA filter. The Austin Air 400 series can exchange the air in a 100 square foot space once every 5 minutes when set on high. Download the Austin Air ACH Reference Table for Dental Operatories PDF

 

 

How Austin Air Purifiers Work

The superior performance of the Austin air purifier begins as air is drawn into the unit via the 360-degree air intake. Contaminants are captured using the most proven, powerful filtration available: medical grade HEPA and activated carbon. The medical grade HEPA filter featured in each Austin Air system eliminates 99.97% of all particles as small as 0.3 microns and 95% of particles 0.1 microns and larger including allergens, odours, chemicals, gases, viruses and bacteria. Generous amounts of activated carbon remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs), chemical vapors, smoke and odors. Once filtered, crystal clean air is returned into your living and work space for your breathing pleasure.

Hourly Air Change Performance(ACH) in a Dental Operatory


In order to properly filter the air and scrub the air of contaminants, a multi-stage highefficiency filter, like the one found in your Austin Air unit, must slow the rate of the air moving through the filter to remove contaminants from the air. The air change calculations for dental operatories that we’ve provided have always been calculated using the true air flow rate CFM of 250 and not the fan speed, so our ACH ratings and your fallow time between patients remains the same. Below is our ACH reference table and it uses the data that we have always provided. This information also includes the formula to calculate ACH based on specific operatory sizes.

The above data is provided to align Austin's ACH performance with the RCDSO guidelines: "COVID-19: Managing Infection Risks During In-Person Dental Care (May 25th, 2020)"


How to calculate ACH for individual operatories of any size:
1) Calculate cubic volume of operatory using: v=l*w*h
2) Deduct volume of cabinetry using c=l*w*h adding the volume of multiple cabinets together if necessary
3) v-c=a where a=air volume in operatory
4) a/TAR=x where x equals the number of air changes per minute using the TAR (True Air Flow Rate, 250CFM for 400-series and 125CFM for 200-series models)
5) ACH=60/x
