AIR160 Classic Air purifier - For a better Air Quality
The AIR160 Classic is based on existing air disinfection methods that are already being used to purify the air hospital operating theatres. Three successful methods have now combined into a single device that is suitable for smaller areas up to 100 m³.
These three methods are: air ionization, filtration and UV-C light disinfection.
Purifying the air you breathe is no longer a superfluous luxury. An increasing number of micro-organisms and chemical pollutants are commonly found in the air we breathe in indoor environments, including viruses, bacteria and moulds, and these make our air less healthy to breath.
But also smoke and pollen can be successfully diminished. The AIR160 is a compact, stand-alone system, immediately ready-for use with simple installation and maintenance.
Easy to service, stylish and effective; it’s the perfect air purifying system for so many applications.

Airborne dust capture also helps maintain productivity of in-room heating and air conditioning units.
A quiet, high-performance Ventilator draws the air through a hospital-grade Air Flow Electrostatic (HAF) Filter into the Disinfection Chamber.
The Fan circulates 50 m³ of air per hour
The NIDEC fan draws the air in the room into the bottom of the unit, creating air circulation. The fan circulates 50 m³ of air per hour through the Aetaire. Depending on the size of the room, the fan can be set to 25 or 50 m³ per hour.
Dust particles and pollen are caught in a special Aetaire HAF filter
The air drawn in by the Aetaire first passes passes through the Aetaire High Air Flow (HAF) filter. This special filter contains an antimicrobial film layer that prevents the growth of various infectious substances on the filter. The antimicrobial media slows the rate at which the filter becomes clogged, thereby increasing its service life.
HAF filters use an electrostatic charge, to operate with twice the efficiency of standard washable foam filters. Consequently they attract, capture, and retain more pollutants and particles than traditional filter media.
The HAF filter keeps the Disinfection Chamber of the AIR160 cleaner, so optimised air disinfection is guaranteed. Plus, the filter’s open channel structure offers minimal airflow resistance ensuring maximum particle removal and maximum airflow. The HAF filter includes an antimicrobial agent that prevents mould growth further increasing performance.
UV-C light to kill bacteria, viruses, moulds and other micro-organisms
After passing through the filter, the air is treated with UV-C radiation. The special Philips UV-C lamp in the unit generates an ultraviolet radiation with a wavelength of 253.7 nanometres.
The UV-C light destroys viruses, bacteria, moulds and other primitive organisms. The radiation damages the DNA structure of micro-organisms and prevents their reproduction.
The special aluminium interior of the housing provides additional reflection of the UV-C radiation, thereby increasing the efficiency of the UV-C radiation up to 50%.

Ionisation results in cleaner, dust- and pollen-free air
The large number of negative ions produced improves the resistance of the human body, and may even promote healing processes
Finally it passes the ioniser. The ionizer introduces 8.5 million negative ions per cubic centimetre into the air. Most of the dust particles in an enclosed space normally have a positive charge. Negative ions have the effect of attracting positive dust particles. By adding negative ions to the air, the positive particles in the air become heavier, which causes them to sink towards the ground. The process therefore results in cleaner, dust- and pollen-free air.
At places where the air is clean, the air contains many more negative ions. Here are some examples of the great number of negative ions in various surroundings, per cm³
