Air Purifiers for Hospitals & Medical Facilities
Smart Air purifiers provide protection against viruses and COVID-19, to keep staff and patients safe.
Is your hospital a safe zone?
Clean air is especially important to crowded hospitals and medical facilities. Smart Air HEPA filter remove up to 99.9% of above and below 0.3 microns, PM10 and even 0.005 micron particles.
Why Hospitals Choose Smart Air
Smart Air’s purifiers are powerful with high CADR ratings. Therefore, Smart Air’s purifiers, such as the Blast, are suitable for large areas that are common in hospitals. Subsequently, the Blasts’s clean air output is 50% greater than most purifiers on the market for a fraction of the price.
More than 50+ hospitals in Asia breathe Smart Air
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 transparent 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 COVID-19?
HEPA filter air purifiers like Smart Air’s have been shown to filter out viruses including COVID-19, and lower transmission. View the CDC data on how HEPAs reduce COVID-19 transmission here.
What other pollutants do Smart Air purifiers filter?
Smart Air's HEPA air purifiers capture many types of particulate air pollution, including nanoparticles as small as 5 nanometers (1/10th the size of COVID-19) to 30 μm (the size of pollen). The whole range includes viruses, bacteria, PM2.5, PM10, pet allergens, dust, and mould.
Smart Air's range of carbon filters absorb VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) such as formaldehyde, paint thinners, petroleum fuels, or dry cleaning agents. Carbon filters also remove odours.

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 purifier's 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 an 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.
