What is the Eco-1000 air filter?
Eco-1000 is the unique air purifier and sterilization unit designed to be used as commercial air cleaning equipment. It combines the strength of five following filtration technologies to filter and sterilize the air
- Medical-grade HEPA 13 filter (fiberglass)
- Activated Carbon filter: Ultra-large adsorption area honeycomb activated carbon filter
- UVC lamp: 254 nm
What type of stuff will Eco-1000 remove from the air?
It removes different kinds of bacteria, viruses, and fungus from the air. To name the few, staphylococcus aureus, staphylococcus albus, E coli, pseudomonas aeruginosa, mycobacterium tuberculosis, H1N1 influenza, and candida albicans. It also removes airborne particles i.e pollens, allergens, and dust; odours such as cigarette smoke, fumes; formaldehyde and common household chemicals & VOCs which are hazardous to health; and NOx * (*available with photocatalyst layer)
What particle size (microns) is Eco-1000 effective in filtering?
What does 1000 in Eco-1000 mean?
Can I use eco-1000 with windows open?
Where should I place Eco-1000 in my workspace?
Whether Eco-1000 effectiveness in filtering out bacteria/virus decreases with increasing speed?
At which speed should one operate the Eco-1000 ?
What are the different modes of operation in Eco-1000?
- Auto mode: When operating in Auto mode, Eco-1000 based on the concentration of particulate matter (PM-2.5), will automatically adjust the fan speed. The device will automatically switch from low, medium to high fan speed.
- Manual mode: In manual mode, there are three fan speeds i.e low, medium, and high at which Eco-1000 can be operated.
- Timing mode: In timer mode, the user can select Eco-1000 automatic shutdown time.
- Sleep mode: In sleep mode, Eco-1000 operates at minimum fan speed with all light off.
What is a HEPA filter?
HEPA is a kind of mechanical filter that can remove pollen, dust, mold, airborne particles 2.5, smoke, and even cigarette smoke from the air. HEPA stands for High-Efficiency Particulate Air. Mechanical filters can be designated as HEPA filters if they can filter out 99.95-99.97% of airborne particles, bacteria of 0.3-micron size. Please see the following image to get an idea of the micron(µ) size.
What are the types of HEPA filters?
What is UVC Light?
What is an activated carbon filter?
Why using a HEPA filter with UVC and Activated carbon is a better option?
Warranty & Maintenance service
Ecoshield Tech offers a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty on the product.
This warranty covers the failure in the motor, UVC light malfunctioning or any problem in the display panel, provided it is not manhandled.
Service & Maintenance
Life of UVC light and HEPA filter
- The life of UVC light is about ~9000 hours, after which the effectiveness of UVC light can decrease. It means assuming 10 hours of usage, the life of UVC light is about 2-2.5 years.
- Life of HEPA filter and activated carbon is about ~5000 hr which assuming 10 hours of usage translates to ~18(approx.) months .
Our maintenance program will cover a visit from our Engineer every 12 months for full inspection of the product. They will replace the HEPA-13 +activate carbon layer, UVC light and photocatalyst* with a new one.
*Photocatalyst layer is optional layer which provide extra protection from NOx and SOx apart oxidizing and killing all bacteria and virus which pass through it.
