Indoor air pollution: an international health problem!
The quality of the indoor air we breathe determines our health and well-being.
The less dust, allergens, micro-organisms, and chemical contaminants we inhale, the lower the risk of getting sick.
Demonstrated by studies by leading institution WHO (World Health Organization) and EPA (Environmental Protection Agency - the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency), indoor air in our living, working and mobility areas are often 2 to 5 and even up to 100 times more polluted than the air outside due to biological and chemical loads!
The problem is exacerbated by modern methods of energy-efficient construction. As a result, inadequate ventilation often causes undisturbed expansion in our indoor spaces with bacteria, viruses, dust mites, mold, particulate matter and pollen.
Given the increasing burden of particulate matter and pollutants, clean indoor air is no longer a given. The quality of breathing air has deteriorated significantly in recent years. Everywhere in our indoor spaces, bacteria, viruses, dust mites, mold, particulate matter, and pollen
can spread undisturbed.
Plenty of reasons to pay attention to the quality of your indoor air.
UV Plasma ionizer air purifier CA-401
Suitable for small and large rooms up to 60m² / 150m³ / 645ft²
Health starts with clean air!
The Clean Air Optima® UV Plasma ionizer air purifier CA-401's unique quadruple filter technology purifies indoor air of virtually all unwanted substances and odors such as:
• Bird dust
• Bacteria and viruses
• Cigarette/tobacco smoke
• Fine particles (PM2.5)
• Hair and flakes
• Dust mite
• Mold spores
With its slim tower model and neutral color scheme, the Clean Air Optima® UV Plasma ionizer air purifier CA-401 can be used in any residential and commercial interior.
The CA-401 air purifier features a choice-program: completely silent air cleaning without a fan or very powerful air cleaning with the low-noise fan turned on.
Effective air cleaning in five steps:
Suction of polluted indoor air by the low-noise, powerful fan.
2. UV-C lamp
The lamp's ultraviolet light (UV-C radiation) with a wavelength of 254 nm kills health-damaging microorganisms such as: germs, viruses, fungi (mold spores) and bacteria. In addition, microorganisms that have accumulated in the device are destroyed.
The combination of the electrostatic filter and the plasma technology binds compounds of a size of up to 0,01 micrometer. Those compounds are fine dust, pollen and all other kinds of particles. The electrostatic loaded dust collector catches floating particles and harmful substances like a magnet. The stainless steel lamella can be cleaned very easily with a damp cloth.
3. Electrostatic filter
The special electrostatic filter system within the UV plasma ionizer air purifier CA-401 can absorb the air also without the ventilator. An electromagnetic field is build up within the device which puts the air and the dust particles under electric tension, the dust particles are sucked to the dust collector lamella like a magnet. The air loses its tension and flows through.
Ionization produces negative ions and cleans the indoor air. The positive feature of the ionization is that it enriches the air with active oxygen. Negative ions attach to the dust particles, micro-organisms and other unwanted compounds and attach them to each other. This way the particles become heavier and sink to the ground or a filtered by the air purifier.
5. Purified air
Clean, healthy breathing air flows into the interior space.
Easy to use via the control panel
The clear control panel on the top of the unit features five touch senstive keys for easy selection of desired settings. In addition, the air purifier CA-401 is equipped with a remote control.
Settings of the air purifier CA-401:
• Turning on and off
• UV-C lamp (switchable on and off)
• Ionizer adjustable in three speeds (High-Med-Low)
• Fan (switchable on and off)
• Timer for switch-off time (1-7 hours)
Usage and maintenance
Reiniging elektrostatisch filter
The electrostatic filter is equipped with stainless steel (SS) dust collectors. First turn the unit off and then unplug it. Wait a few minutes. Then pull the electrostatic filter from the top of the unit. Clean the stainless steel (RVS) dust collectors with a soft, slightly damp cloth to which a little detergent may have been applied. Replace filter dry! In normal continuous operation (24h/day), we recommend cleaning the electrostatic filter 2x per week.
Cleaning the ionization rails
The Clean Air Optima® UV Plasma ionizer air purifier CA-401 features a cleaning mechanism for scraping the two triangular toothed ionization rails. This scraping takes place when the electrostatic filter is removed from the unit and reinserted by the two scrapers located at the bottom of the filter. Under normal conditions, we recommend cleaning the ionization rails twice a week. To perform this cleaning, pull the electrostatic filter out of the device 4-5 times in succession and replace the filter.
No replacement filters required!
Simple filter cleaning eliminates the need for expensive replacement filters = cost-saving!
Replacing UV-C lamp
The UV-C lamp of the Clean Air Optima® UV Plasma ionizer air purifier CA-401 has a lifetime of 8,000 operating hours = 1 year of 24/7 operation.
