Why choose an air purifier from the IDEAL AP PRO range?



When, like YOOTEST, our job is to offer laboratory analysis of air pollution, we are particularly demanding when we propose an air purification solution. Demanding and able to make the right choices based on its scientific expertise.

The AP PRO range of purifiers offered by IDEAL Santé is primarily intended for professionals.
They are suitable for day care centers, day nurseries, classrooms, retirement homes and nursing homes, health professionals, offices and open sapces, hotel and restaurant professionals, craft workshops, sports halls, waiting rooms, hairdressing salons, as well as all businesses and places open to the public.

Professional premises whose air is particularly polluted because they use solvents and chemicals (laundries, shoe repair shops, printing shops, copy shops, drugstores, prosthetists, garages ...) will also get a level of performance commensurate with their needs.

This professional equipment is also our recommendation for demanding individuals who are looking for reliable air purification equipment for their homes and not a "marketing solution".

Contrary to some "general public" equipment that have equivalent or even higher prices, IDEAL Santé's PRO range benefits from an excellent quality/price ratio.


How to choose the right air purifier for your needs?

In all cases, it is first and foremost essential to choose the purifier model that corresponds to the size of the part to be treated, knowing that a device will be able to treat only one part. Thus the air of a 100 m2 room with 5 independent rooms cannot be purified by a single piece of equipment designed to treat a 100 m2 surface.

To purify the air, very large quantities of air must be moved through the filters. Due to its design and technologies, the AP PRO range of purifiers offers a high flow rate so that indoor air can be filtered several times in one hour.

To achieve this, the IDEAL AP PRO air purifiers use powerful motors and large inlet and outlet openings. The air flow is only slightly deflected inside the units to increase the flow speed.

  •     The AP30 PRO purifier can treat the air of a room with a surface area of 215 to 430 ft² (8ft ceiling height) and purifies up to 1200 gp/m at maximum power.
  •     The AP40 PRO purifier allows to treat the air of a room of 300 to 550 ft² of surface (8ft of height under ceiling) and purifies up to 1600 gp/m at maximum power.
  •     The AP60 PRO purifier allows to treat the air of a room of 550 to 750 ft² of surface (8ft of height under ceiling) and purifies up to 2200 gp/m at maximum power.
  •     The AP80 PRO purifier allows to treat the air of a room of 750 to 1000 ft² of surface (8ft of height under ceiling) and purifies up to 2900 gp/m at maximum power.
  •     The AP140 PRO purifier can treat the air of a room with a surface area of 1300 to 1700 ft² (8ft ceiling height) and purifies up to 5000 gp/m at maximum power.

If the indoor environment is particularly polluted, the choice of a more powerful model is recommended.

What are the benefits for people suffering from asthma or respiratory diseases?

Indoor air pollution particularly affects people suffering from asthma, allergies and respiratory pathologies. The use of these air purifiers makes it possible to eliminate pollutants such as dust mite allergens and pollens responsible for asthma and allergies and thus prevent these pathologies.

The use of these purifiers is recommended for allergy sufferers by the European Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF).


How to use the AP30 PRO and AP40 PRO purifiers?

The air purifiers are very easy to use. Once connected to the mains, a single EASY-TOUCH switch allows you to manually adjust the treatment speed (1/2/3) and to choose the operating mode.

The AP40 PRO model is equipped with a remote control.

  •     Automatic: particle and VOC sensors control the power level required for optimal air purification.
  •     Turbo: for fast indoor air purification
  •     Night: for a silent purification and conducive to sleep.

Thanks to the integrated fine particles and VOC sensors, the purifier displays the ambient air quality in real time by LED lighting (Green, Yellow, Red).

For a better efficiency, an air purifier should be ideally placed near the center of the room. However, it can be fixed to a wall using a wall bracket (Accessory).


How to use the AP60 PRO and AP80 PRO purifiers?

The air purifiers are very easy to use. Once connected to the mains, a control panel allows you to manually adjust the treatment speed (1/2/3) and to choose the operating mode.

    Timer
    Safety Locking Device
    Display of the filter wear condition

The IDEAL AIR PRO application is available for iOS and Android operating systems and requires a Wi-Fi connection.


How to get healthy indoor air at all times?


In automatic mode, the unit adapts the filtration flow rate by itself thanks to the real-time measurements provided by its integrated VOC and fine particle sensors. The automatic mode prevents pollution from increasing to levels that are dangerous to health.

 


What air treatment technologies are integrated in IDEAL SANTE air purifiers?

These air purifiers are equipped with multilayer filters integrating 5 complementary filtration technologies. They have a very high efficiency to eliminate indoor air pollution.

  1.     A grid protects the multilayer filter from the largest debris.
  2.     A pre-filter allows to retain the largest dust particles and to extend the life of the HEPA filter (high-efficiency particulate air/air particle filter).
  3.     A microfiber HEPA filter to retain inhalable (PM10), alveolar (PM2.5) and ultrafine (PM0.3) dust particles
  4.     An activated carbon filter to trap volatile chemicals such as VOCs, nitrogen dioxide (NO2), ozone (O3) and strongest odors.
  5.     A surface treatment of the activated carbon to protect it and make it more effective against formaldehyde.

"Activated carbon is a very porous material (set of voids inside a solid material) which adsorbs (molecule fixation phenomenon) gaseous chemicals. The higher its specific surface area, the better it performs".

The activated carbon used in IDEAL Santé purifiers has a specific surface area of 1000 m2/g of activated carbon.
As an example, the quantity present in the AP30 PRO and AP40 PRO models has a specific surface area equivalent to that of 52 soccer fields or 296 Olympic swimming pools.



The cylinder geometry guarantees an important flow of filtered air at 360° around the equipment (radial suction).

 


The multilayer accordion filter allows to increase the filtration surface to maintain a very high efficiency over time.

The combination of these technologies reduces the effects of filter clogging making the removal of pollutants from indoor air less effective over time.


What are the performances of the IDEAL AP PRO range of purifiers in real conditions of use?

These purifiers are very effective against indoor air pollution by fine particles (PM10 and PM2.5) and ultrafine particles (PM0.3 or MPPS).

The performance tests were carried out according to DIN 71460-1 on the air purifiers as delivered and not just on the filter alone.
The results show an almost complete removal (>99.98%) of fine and ultrafine particles.





The main efficiency indicators of air purifiers are :

  •  The Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR), which is a measure of the short-term efficiency of an air purifier (first 20 minutes of use).
  •  The Cumulated Clean Mass (CCM) for fine particles (PM) or formaldehyde (F) which indicates how effective an air purifier is in the long term, before it loses half of its efficiency over time.

The higher the particles, the more effective the indoor air purifier is.

With CADR values between 300 and 675m3/h, the results obtained by the AP-30/40/60/80 PRO models demonstrate their very good performance.
In the absence of data, we can not pronounce ourselves on the AP140 PRO model.

 



How often should the AP30 PRO and AP40 PRO air purifiers be serviced?


To ensure optimum performance, the air purifier's single filter should be replaced every 12 months.

Changing the filter is very simple to perform and does not require technical expertise.

If the treated indoor air is heavily polluted, as is often the case in professional environments, the filter should be changed every 6 months.

The integrated indoor air quality sensors make it possible to evaluate the wear and tear of the filters and to change them only when necessary. This function is only available when using the IDEAL AIR PRO application.


What are the operating noise levels of these air purifiers?

 One of the strong points of this range is its silent operation. This performance is linked to the quality and technological choices of top-of-the-range ventilation and motorization.



As a comparison, here are some examples of ambient sound levels:

  •      Normal conversation (at a distance of 1 m): +/-65 dB
  •      Standard vacuum cleaner: +/- 70 dB
  •      Normal office environment: 50 to 60 dB
  •      Bedroom at night : 35 to 40 dB

What is the power consumption of the AP PRO series connected purifiers?



AP PRO purifiers use high-performance motors with moderate power consumption. This allows these purifiers to operate 24 hours a day in automatic mode.

At full power, the AP40 PRO purifier consumes 75 W/hour at a cost of about 0.27 €/day.
Under the same conditions, the AP80 PRO purifier consumes 175 W/hour, i.e. a cost of approximately 0.63 €/day.

Why choose an AP40 PRO purifier rather than an AP30 PRO ?

For the same surface area, the AP40 PRO indoor air purifier is more efficient than the AP30 PRO model because it has been designed to treat larger volumes.

In addition, the AP40 PRO model includes a remote control for an easy control of the air purifier (range of 8 m) and a premium grey textile cover.
