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

  1. Pre-filter
  2. Medical-grade HEPA 13 filter (fiberglass)
  3. Activated Carbon filter: Ultra-large adsorption area honeycomb activated carbon filter
  4. Photocatalyst
  5. 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?
Eco-1000 can effectively filter particles and bacteria/viruses of size in the range of 0.3 micrometre.
What does 1000 in Eco-1000 mean?
It means, it has the capacity of cleaning 1000 m3 of air in 1 hour (1000 m3/hour).
Can I use eco-1000 with windows open?
Yes, however Eco-1000 should be placed away from windows to make it more effective. Our Engineer can guide you on this.
Where should I place Eco-1000 in my workspace?
Eco-1000 ideally can be placed in any part of the workspace. For more details, please check the SOP (Standard Operating Procedure)
Whether Eco-1000 effectiveness in filtering out bacteria/virus decreases with increasing speed?
The effectiveness of Eco-1000’s in removing bacteria, viruses, and PM-2.5, have been tested in the laboratory at maximum speed conditions and found excellent.
At which speed should one operate the Eco-1000 ?
For maximum effectiveness, it is suggested to operate Eco-1000 at maximum fan speed.
What are the different modes of operation in Eco-1000?
There are following four modes of operation in Eco-1000:

  1. 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.
  2. Manual mode: In manual mode, there are three fan speeds i.e low, medium, and high at which Eco-1000 can be operated.
  3. Timing mode: In timer mode, the user can select Eco-1000 automatic shutdown time.
  4. Sleep mode: In sleep mode, Eco-1000 operates at minimum fan speed with all light off.

Technology familiarisation

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?
The general classification of HEPA filters is done based on MERV rating (Minimum Efficiency Rating Value), and it goes from 1(least efficient) to 16 (most effective). HEPA filters ranging between 13-16 MERV are considered best as they are found to be the most efficient for the removal of pollutants from the air. These filters are commonly used in public places, like hospitals, big clinics, and recently in other public places like bars, pubs, schools, and malls.
What is UVC Light?
UVC is a portion of ultraviolet light that has the highest energy and shortest wavelength (200-290 nanometres). It is a known disinfectant for air, water & non-porous surfaces. Also known as germicidal as it disinfects air from bacteria and viruses. UVC light can help in reducing airborne transmission risk from bacteria and viruses, especially SARS-Cov-2 in poorly ventilated spaces. Eco-1000 uses a well-encapsulated UVC (254 nm) light without any risk of exposure. (Note: UVC direct exposure is not good for health).
What is an activated carbon filter?
Activated carbon filters capture gases and odours. They have powerful adsorbent capacity which help in capturing VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and odours from air. The VOCs and odours in general cannot be captured by HEPA filters. Eco-1000 uses HEPA along with an activated carbon filter to provide full protection and help to improve indoor air qualities.
Why using a HEPA filter with UVC and Activated carbon is a better option?
When HEPA is used with UVC and Activated carbon, it provides an extra layer of protection not only against harmful bacteria and viruses but also for VOCs and odours. This combination assurance that the air that you breathe in is the safest and purest air and therefore, provide you a healthy and safe indoor environment

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.
