Hospital Air Purifiers FAQ
Are Smart Air purifiers better than other air purifiers?
Smart Air purifiers use the same cleaning principle as most other air purifiers. The technology behind air purifiers is not complex, and readily available.
However, Smart Air is the only air purifier company committed to transparently communication through open-data. We avoid overcomplicating our air purifiers with high markups and marketing gimmicks. Smart Air purifiers are honest, data-backed and streamlined to do one thing: clean air.
Can Smart Air’s purifiers filter the COVID-19 coronavirus?
HEPA filter air purifiers like Smart Air’s have been shown to filter out COVID-19 viruses, and lower transmission. View the CDC data on how HEPAs reduce coronavirus transmission here.
What other pollutants do Smart Air purifiers filter?
Smart Air’s HEPA air purifiers capture many types of particulae air pollution, including nanoparticles as small as 5 nanometers (1/10th the size of the coronavirus) to 30 μm (the size of pollen). The whole range includes virus, bacteria, PM2.5, PM10, pet allergens, dust, and mold.
Smart Air’s range of carbon filters absorb VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) such as formaldehyde, paint thinners, petroleoum fuels, or dry cleaning agents. Carbon filters also remove odors.

Are UV-light and ionizers required for hospital air purifiers?
UV light air purifiers and ionizers are not recommended for hospital use. First, UV (or UV-C) lights installed in air purifiers are too weak to kill viruses, and the UV lights may also damage the purifiers HEPA filters. Secondly, ionizers are not effective at cleaning the air, and may in fact produce harmful pollutants such as ozone and VOC in your hospital.

What are ‘medical grade’ air purifiers and does my hospital need them?
The term ‘medical grade’ is used as a marketing gimmick by some companies to charge higher prices for air purifiers. There is no such standard as ‘medical grade’, and terms like this should be avoided. For hospitals, you should use a HEPA-based air purifier and select your air purifier based on CADR and air changes per hour.
What grade of HEPA filter is required for hospital use?
The US CDC recommends air purifiers should have HEPA filters that capture 99.97% of particles or above. This is roughly equivalent to a H13 HEPA filter. However, lower grade filters can still capture viruses and may actually be more effective at improving ventilation in the hospital.
It is recommended you choose an air purifier based first on its CADR, as opposed to its HEPA filter grade.
