IQAir air purifiers – established quality also for allergy sufferers

Air purifier iQAir GC-MultigasSince 10 years now the air purifiers of the IQAir series prove their use and effectivity.

Confirmed by a leading German consumer safety group called “Stiftung Warentest” with the test result “good” and the use in clinical areas in Hong Kong during the fight against the virus SARS IQAir air purifiers showed their excellent filtration, certified quality and advanced filter technology.

Even at home or in offices IQAir devices are a worth doing investment because researches prove that the air in living areas and offices is about 100 times more polluted than the outer air.

Especially allergy sufferers benefit from the air purification power of these devices. Pollen are filtered reliably and affected people can now sigh. Even asthmatics who are prone for pollutants in the air will be convinced fast by IQAir air purifiers. Clean air for a healthy life.

It doesn’t matter if they are used in facilities for data storage, surgeries, lock areas or laboratories, the IQAir air purifiers offer compact and powerful solutions equipped with the technical know-how of the Trotec company.

Thermometer for measurement without coming into contact with a body’s surface

As of recently there’s a new infrared thermometer available at the TROTEC-shop. With the thermometer Temptection BodyPlus skin temperature and the temperature of other surfaces can be determined without actually coming into contact with the body’s surface.

Contact-free measuring is very hygienically because there’s no direct contact with the body’s surface. Conventional thermometers have to be disinfected after every usage to avoid an infection. With the Temptection BodyPlus large numbers of people can be checked fast.

So the thermometer is ideal for use in doctor’s surgeries, hospitals, kindergartens, schools and other places of action.

Even parents should be interested in the thermometer because they can measure their children’s temperature easily while they are sleeping. The temperature of baby food like milk or porridge can be measured fast and easy-going.

Benefits in practice with a thermometer Temptection BodyPlus:Temptection-BodyPlus

  • contact-free measuring at a distance of 5 to 15 cm
  • determines body temperatures from 30 to 42.5°C
  • determines surface temperatures from 0 to 60°C
  • backlit LCD
  • alarm function
  • easy to handle

Immediate measures – protection packages against the swine influenza

Air purifier Set-Cleanroom250MGThe swine influenza is on the march across the globe. The WHO (world health organisation) reently declared the highest alert.

At the moment there is no vaccine available for humans against H1N1. Currently the most effective protection is the neutralisation of the influenza A virus.

Therefore TROTEC offers three exclusive air purifier protection packages for prevention against the pig flu:

  • Air purifier HealthPro 150 plus the
    fever thermometer Temptection BodyPlus
  • Air purifier HealthPro 250 plus the
    fever thermometer Temptection BodyPlus
  • Air purifier Cleanroom 250 MG plus the
    fever thermometer Temptection BodyPlus

IQAir air purifiers for effective infectious prevention against the swine influenza

The expansion of H1N1 (swine influenza)

Since March 2009 the A/H1N1 influenza virus, also known as swine influenza or pig flu, spreads unusually fast. After a local confined onset in Mexico the virus is now widespread on all continents just after a few months. The world health organisation (WHO) decided to raise the pandemic alert to phase 6. This step is done very rarely by the WHO.

The last time the WHO declared an influenza pandemic is 41 years ago. The risks of the swine influenza are hardly appreciable yet. The virus is new and it will probably modify itself – it’s possible that the virus becomes very hazard.

Prevention is the best defence

Just like a variety of respiratory diseases H1N1 is assigned by direct contact from human to human: via airborne infection while coughing and sneezing or because of touching contaminated surfaces. Because there’s still no vaccine against H1N1 prevention is the most effective strategy. Given of the increasing infections a specifically proceeding for stemming the onsets is absolutely necessary. Schools, universities, hospitals and other medical institutions, departments, public transit and wherever a lot of people meet infectious prevention is urgently advised.

Air purification offers an efficiency, reliably, flexibly and economically solution for infectious prevention. IQAir® is one of the few air purifiers having the ability to remove airborne particles ≥ 0.3μm with the necessary efficiency of more than 99.97 %. This study, implemented by the national electrical and mechanical services department (EMSD) on behalf of the Hong Kong hospital authority (HKHA) in 2003, should find an effective solution for containment of the “severe acute respiratory syndrome, also known as SARS. Since then IQAir® takes an important part in the fight against SARS and other challenges in prevention of airborne infections.

Efficiency of the IQAir® filtration of the H1N1 virus

IQAir® filtration system have been tested successfully according to the strict standards of DIN EN 1822 by an independent institution. The HEPA-filters of the IQAir® Cleanroom-series are filters of class H12, resp. H13 and filter at least 99.5 % of the smallest and highly infectious particles of known disease agents. Therefore the pig flu virus (approx.. 0.1μm diameter) or the SARS corona virus (approx. 0.11μm diameter) are filtered approximately at 100 %.

Chief advantages of the highly effective IQAir® air purifiers

Though high efficiency isn’t the only feature of performance of IQAir® devices it’s still one of the most important features. The highly efficient air purifier guarantees:

  1. User nearby the air purifier breathe air as clean as possible.
  2. Less air circulation is necessary to clean the ambient air. That entails that the air purifier can run on a lower fan stage than less efficiency air purifiers whereby less noise and draught occurs.
  3. Filtered suspended matters remain in the filter and won’t get into the ambient air again.

The IQAir®series technology

Air purifier iQAirIQAir air purification systems proved themselves over a million times in critical areas all over the world since more than 10 years. Because of their superior filtration efficiency, their great versatility und high mobility IQAir® air purifiers belong to the most advanced and economic mobile air filtration system available in the sector today.

IQAir air purification systems are used by leading research institutions, hospitals und companies for air purification all over the world.

IQAir air purification systems specially excel with their high separation efficiency of constant and liquid airborne particles or aerosols. The Cleanroom 250 MG is used for infectious prevention in medical institutions and in cleanroom likely areas for particle reduction because of its certified and guaranteed filtration efficiency. Every single filter of the Cleanroom-series has been tested and every device has got an own certificate.

Every model offers high comfort of application and the following system advantages:

  • absolutely silent conception
  • easy control
  • 6 adjustable fan stages
  • Certified quality
  • Fast and safe filter exchange and smoothly disposing
  • High performance radial fan
  • Economical system
  • Sturdy construction

The combination of a Premax MG pre-filter and a Cleanroom-HyperHEPA-filter offers a high filtration efficiency with allergens, viruses, bacteria and moulds and enables the reliably usage of the air purifiers in medical institutions, schools, kindergartens, care homes, anterooms, hotel rooms and allergy treatment centres.

High performance virus elimination

Radial fans of the IQAir systems are propelled by an powerful quality motor built for non-stop operation. So only one device can purify the ambient air in rooms up to 50 m² (125 m³). For example: A room with a volume of 60 m³ can be filtered 6 times in only one hour.

Discovering by controlling!

Not only prevention is necessary to stem the pig flu. Already existing viruses have to be isolated consequently to prevent the population from more infections. That’s why local health authorities advise more checks at airports and stations. That’s the only way to interrupt the chains of infection. Nevertheless, up to now consequent checks are impracticable. Checks at Frankfurt airport had to be stopped, for example.

The swine influenza begins suddenly. Fatigue, joint pain and high fever are typical symptoms of an infection with the H1N1 virus. With infrared thermometers from Trotec a person’s temperature can be detected very fast, precise and without a touch. Crowds can be scanned very easy and fast for the distinctive H1N1 symptom.
