Best by test. Battelle Laboratories tested over 100 different models of air cleaners for the United States government and determined the Austin Air cleaner was best concluding that Austin Air cleaners provided the most effective air cleaning solution, meeting United States government’s requirements.
Effective filtering of bacteria and virions with over 60 square feet of true medical grade HEPA media. Large and Medium Pre-filters capture airborne particles and allergens including dust, dust mites, pet dander, mold spores, and pollen while prolonging the HEPA filter life.
Filtering of chemicals, gases and odors is enabled by over 15 lbs of activated carbon treated with certified pure zeolite. The activated carbon is made from coconut shells and the zeolite is mined in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. This activated carbon zeolite is blended in a 10 to 1 ratio and pelletized. This charcoal mix gives the HealthMate air cleaner the ability to remove chemicals, gases and odors.
The HealthMate (HM400) is built to last and easy to move with a welded steel body that is powder-coated with a non-toxic finish. The motor is rated to run continuously on the highest setting, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 12 months a year for a minimum of 5 years. Austin Air stands behind this promise with a 5-Year Mechanical Warranty. Easy-roll casters are included to facilitate movement. Austin Air backs up the 4-stage filter with a 5-year Pro-Rated Warranty.
Economical to run and maintain – It costs less than 50¢ a day to run at the fast setting. Eliminates costly filter changes since the filter has up to a 5-year life expectancy in normal use. If you have more challenging conditions, the filter is covered by the Pro-Rated 5-Year Warranty, so you can save a fortune on filter replacements. Other machines require 10 to 20 filter changes in the same time period and will cost 2 to 3 times as much to maintain.
