Aura Air: Anti-viral filtering
Author: Yiannis Kotoulas
Aura Air UK has released a combined air filtration and disinfection system for use in practices as patients begin to return.
The unit has a small footprint and has been designed to hang on the ceiling above the patient, ensuring the optimum extraction of aerosol droplets. Aura Air UK claims that the unit will purify a 60m3 room, passing the total air volume through the filter six times per hour.
Featuring a system of three filters, the device utilises a copper impregnated HEPA filter, a sterioniser that releases viricidal oxidants and a traditional UVC LED. These three systems ensure air disinfection with the unit’s carbon layer absorbing bad odours.
The accompanying app for Aura Air’s unit displays humidity, CO and CO2 levels against outdoor conditions, showing its efficacy.
