Winix Hospital Grade True HEPA Filtration

Hospital Grade HEPA

So just what is Hospital-Grade True HEPA Filtration?

Ausclimate’s Winix range are specifically designed for Australia, giving you the unique combination of superior 'PlasmaWave' air-purification technology and certified H13 Hospital-grade true HEPA filtration. This industry-leading technology & filtration standard effectively remove a broad range of odours, allergens & other airborne pollutants including; dust, smoke, pollen, pet dander, mould, bacteria, viruses and VOCs.

Why is Hospital Grade HEPA so important?

Ausclimate’s Winix air purifier range is certified as meeting the True HEPA Filter H13 certification - Australian Standard (AS 4260-1997)¹. This means that they have a confirmed H13 level of purification, removing 99.97% (minimum efficiency) of airborne pollutants such as viruses, bacteria & allergens as small as 0.3 microns (0.3 microns is far smaller than dust, dust mites, mould spores, pollens, bacteria and even pet dander!). This is the industry standard that defines whether an air purifier is suitable for use in hospital environments and medical applications including; clean-rooms, pharmaceutical manufacturing and any environment where clean/sterile conditions are required.

Not all HEPA filters are equal

The unfortunate truth is that many suppliers make the claim of having 'HEPA filters', however, some of these are in reality not actually 'H13 Hospital-grade true HEPA' filtration and upon testing, fail to filter 99.97% at 0.3 microns of particles from the air. As a responsible Australian supplier of quality air purifiers, proof of independent testing is very important to us, as it should be for all customers doing their research.

Ausclimate's Winix air purifier range proudly meets the Australian Standards, European Standards, as well as the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Standards and have the proof to back it up.¹

Surpassing Australian HEPA Filter Standards

While Ausclimate's Winix air purifier range meets these industry standards, in some ways our range actually surpasses them. Independent Australian tests¹ performed by Assured Equipment Services showed that at 0.3 microns, our filters actually surpassed the required efficiency level of 99.97%. Then as we get below the 99.97% efficiency rating, the filters can actually capture pollutants much smaller than the required 0.3 micron Standard (i.e. smoke and other tiny particles).

¹ H13 True Hepa filtration standard accredited by Australian independent testing laboratory, Assured Equipment Services, Utah-based Nelson Laboratories and Yonsei University, based in Seoul, South Korea. Test report results available upon request.

Winix Air Purifiers VOC Test Results

Voc Test Picture

Winix Air Purifier VOC Efficacy Test Results Are In

Ausclimate are extremely proud to share our recent independent VOC Testing Results for our Winix Ultimate 5-Stage Air Purifier, but firstly, just what are VOCs?

So what are VOCs?

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are chemicals that can easily enter the air in our home from many commonly used household products. The list of VOCs in your home seems endless. And yes, they’re everywhere: the materials used to build our home, plywood & wood products, carpets, soft furnishings, upholstered furniture, oil & solvent based cleaners, nail polish & other personal care products, adhesives & paints, aerosol sprays, even the vehicle emissions entering our homes.

We are commonly exposed to these VOCs by breathing, touching & swallowing. Just how harmful these are to our health is determined directly by:

  • The toxicity of the VOCs
  • The amount of VOCs in the air
  • The duration of exposure

Reducing our exposure can be achieved in a number of ways. And, whilst it may not be possible to totally remove these hazardous chemicals from our home, we can certainly take some steps to limit our exposure:

  • Ensure indoor areas are well-ventilated
  • Reduce the sources of VOCs where practicable
  • Use high quality air purifiers.

Winix Air Purifiers for VOC Removal

It’s well known that HEPA filter within the Winix Air Purifiers are designed to remove airborne pollutants in our homes, including those tiny particles of dust, mould, smoke, pollens, viruses and bacteria.

But the HEPA filter alone are not designed for VOC removal. It’s really the Winix ACTIVATED CARBON filter, as well as Winix PlasmaWaveTM technology that are the most important features when it comes to removing VOCs (such as formaldehyde & other dangerous chemicals).

VOC Independent Testing

Winix proudly state that the Winix Ultimate 5 Stage Air Purifier is in a field of its own when it comes to removing VOCs from the air in our homes. And there’s little doubt that the Activated Carbon filter, as well as Winix PlasmaWaveTM technology are responsible for these high-efficiency rates.

But, here in Australia, we wanted to go one step further, to have our own testing performed too – just to be sure!

So, we enlisted Melbourne-based indoor environment industry expert, Nicole Bijlsma (pictured), CEO of the Australian College of Environmental Studies to carry out independent VOC efficacy testing of our Winix Ultimate 5 Stage Air Purifier.

Nicole completed the VOC air testing in Bayswater, Melbourne in 2017 & had the samples analysed by Prism Analytical Technologies (USA).

VOC Test Results

Quite simply, the results were very clear:

In the official test, “The results indicate a significant reduction in Total VOCs from 98,000ng/L to 20,000 ng/L which equates to an almost 80% reduction of total VOCs within one hour of the air purifier being in use.”*

This is a great result that leaves us wondering, ‘If this is so effective in only one hour, can you imagine how effective it is in cleaning the air in a room all day long?!’

What these VOC test results mean for you

We’ve already established that there are more potentially hazardous chemicals in our homes than we want to even think about! From everyday household cleaners, to furniture materials, to common glues, paints & plastics found in the home; even experts have little knowledge on their potentially long-term & dangerous effects on human health.

Nicole Bijlsma notes that “Outdoor air pollution kills more people in Australia than the road toll, and indoor air quality is up to five times more polluted than outdoor air” (BITRE, 2017; OECD, 2014; US EPA, 2017). …“The Ausclimate air purifier was shown to reduce the chemical load in indoor air by 80% within an hour of use.” (ACES, 2017)

Simply put, these results prove that Ausclimate’s Winix Ultimate 5 Stage Air Purifier will actively remove many of these airborne chemicals straight out of the air in our rooms, as effectively as 80% in one hour! In the big picture, these results are just great news for people with chemical sensitivities (or just wanting to reduce their chemical exposure) because this is real evidence that our Winix Ultimate 5 Stage Air Purifier can effectively protect you & your family from many of these everyday chemical nasties that are found in the common home.

Prism has been performing air quality assessments to industry and environmental consultants since 1995.
