Please feel free to contact us with any questions or our recommendations on the correct use of the Ultraviolet Air Purifiers
Air Purifier with Ultraviolet Light (Manufactured by Sun Pure) Dimensions: 21.5"W X 18"H X 8"D
This filter is rated for up to 2100 square feet of relatively open area. This does NOT mean that it would filter the air in another room (separated by the standard 32" wide doorway) as thoroughly as the air of the room it is actually placed in. The ability of ANY air purifier to move air through itself (thereby filtering it) is decreased by distance from the filter and by the walls or doorways in your home. Be sure to read the article below for a detailed explanation of what is realistic to expect any air purifier to be capable of. You can also email us (just click on the "CONTACT US" link at the top of this page) with any questions as to the usage of these filters.
For an in depth presentation of information (based on 15+ years of studies) detailing why we recommend and use this air purification system for ourselves and our companion birds' better health please read the article What is in the air? by clicking on the underlined link.
This system embodies unique purification technologies not found in any other air purifiers!
-Advanced computerized electronic controls monitor air quality in real time for toxic fumes, gases and particles to protect homeowners against harmful air quality.
-Infrared motion detectors automatically reduce power consumption when there is no movement or dust making activity in the home.
-Built in electronics monitors keep tract of air flow and volume as well as filter and ultraviolet lamp replacement time.
-A four-stage filtration system removes particles as small as .1 microns (1/10 the size of bacteria) combined with 2 layers of gas absorption media to remove toxic fumes and odors.
-An ultraviolet light chamber kills bacteria and viruses too small to be removed by even the finest filters.
Manufactured of high impact ABS plastic, this air purifier has been designed so simply that replacement of filters and U.V. lamp can be accomplished in minutes by the user without tools. These machines have a limited lifetime manufacturer's warranty which means the manufacturer will repair it or help you repair it for a small fee for the life of the original owner. We do not know of any other air purification company offering such an extensive warranty!
THE "FIVE STEP" AIR PURIFICATION SYSTEM
STEP ONE: Cleans the Air of Macro Particles
A treated (to prevent mold and bacterial growth in these filters) 5 micron pre-filter removes all particles from the air larger than 5 microns, extending the life of the HEPA filter and protects the gas absorbing media from dust coating and fouling.
STEP TWO: Removes Toxic Chemicals and Gases
A specially formulated gas absorption media removes exhaust fumes, organic hydrocarbons, pesticides, formaldehyde from particle board used in home construction, paint solvents, chlorine, cleaning chemicals and other potentially toxic fumes.
STEP THREE: Eliminates Household Odors
Activated coconut carbon pleated for maximum surface area removes potentially toxic chemicals caused by cooking, heating and air-conditioning systems, etc. Activated carbon also rids the air of low level ozone.
STEP FOUR: Hospital Grade HEPA Filter Removes Allergens
The hospital grade HEPA Filter removes allergens so small that they can only be seen with a microscope! Pollen, mold, fungal spores, dust mites, cockroach dust, tobacco smoke and bacteria are but a few examples.
STEP FIVE: Ultraviolet Light Kills Disease Germs on Contact
Ultraviolet Light 10,000 times the intensity of sunlight kills viruses and bacteria on contact! Ultraviolet technology is an important feature in air purification since germs are easily spread from one person to another or from one bird to another by central heating and air-conditioning systems.
Please Note: Although the Ultraviolet Bulb used in this filter does generate a tiny amount of residual Ions - it is not enough to be considered either helpful in any way - or to have any potential harmful effects.
At Parrot Island we recommend replacing the pre-filter, 2 chemical filters and the HEPA filter every 6 months for greatest safety of air purification for your companion bird. The UV lamp should be replaced once per year. The replacement filters and UV bulbs are also available on our website at the links below.
