Micropure Air Purifier

Micropure® Total Home Active Air Purifier

The MicroPure® Total Home Active Air Purifier uses a unique new indoor air quality process to naturally produce airborne scrubbers that actively seek out and destroy pollutants in the air AND on surfaces.

MX4™ Ionic Oxidation utilizes propriety metallic technology and UV light energy to naturally produce ionic air scrubbers and destroy many indoor pollutants, such as bacteria, viruses, mold, VOC's, mildew, allergens, and odors.

Features:

  • ALL NEW MX4™ Ionic Oxidation eliminates pollutants in the air and on surfaces.
  • Active purification throughout all living spaces 24 hours a day.
  • Eliminates bacteria, mold, viruses, mildew, smoke, odors, VOC's, and more.
  • Ionic air scrubbers destroy indoor contaminants anywhere the air goes.
  • Unique air purification process even cleans air that doesn't pass through the HVAC system.
  • Installs in any HVAC system.
  • NASA-developed technology for use in the International Space Station.
  • 5", 9", and 14" models
  • 24V and 120V/230V power supply options.
  • Long life warranty. 5-yr power supply, 4-yr MX4™ core, 2-yr UV lamp.

1Where is the MicroPure installed within the ducting?
2Because humidity and the conversion of water vapor to hydrogen peroxide is key to the performance of the MicroPure system, is there an optimum humidity level and is the MicroPure still effective in dry environments?
3If a humidifier is installed, where should the MicroPure be mounted?
4The owner's manual says to replace the UV bulb every two years. If the bulb is still operating at the end of the two years, does it still need to be replaced?
5How do we decide what MicroPure unit is needed?
Three MicroPure sizes are available, 5 inch, 9 inch, and 14 inch. In general, the size of the cooling system is a good rule of thumb to determine the appropriate MicroPure unit: - 2 or 2½ Ton System: 5 inch - 3 to 5 Ton System: 9 inch - 5 Ton and Larger System: 14 inch In addition to considering tonnage, also consider the biological loading which takes into account: a. Occupants who smoke (Yes, MicroPure can significantly reduce smoking odors!) b. Pets including dogs, cats, birds or other animals which create dander, feces or aerosolized urine (pet owners love MicroPure!) c. Cooking odors and grease, especially ethnic food (Fish odors? Yes, we break down the organic compounds that make up the fish odor, MicroPure doesn't cover up odors!) d. High VOC levels due to manufacture wood products, carpeting, and other materials which off-gas chemicals. e. High mold or mildew - very common in coastal areas and areas where humidity levels are high. (MicroPure kills mold that creates the musty smells, even down in the carpeting.) When the challenges listed above are identified, and the system tonnage is close to the next larger unit, consider installing the larger MicroPure system. Caution: Too much of a good thing is not good, and more is NOT better. Special caution should be taken when installing a system which services only bedrooms. Bedroom areas typically have low biological loading and therefore do not require high levels of purification. For this reason, follow the sizing guidelines provided and when in doubt, contact Dust Free for guidance.
6For exterior ground-mounted horizontal package units, where should MicroPure be mounted?
MicroPure is not approved for exterior mount. Install MicroPure in the crawlspace or use an approved NEMA3 enclosure (not provided).
7Should MicroPure be switched to come on with the blower or be left on continuously?
8Recommendation from Dust Free:
9When installing into a 220V package unit, can MicroPure be wired directly into the 220V circuit?
MicroPure comes in two electrical configurations; 24V AC and 100-240V AC. The version which can accept 100-240V AC has an external AC to DC power adapter. This can be wired into the 220 V circuit but be aware it comes with a 3 meter power cord with standard "B" type plug which cannot be cut off and hardwired due to local and state electrical codes. The best solution is to use the 24V AC MicroPure unit and connect to the internal 24V AC transformer or wire in a separate 24V AC (40 VA) transformer.
10Is MicroPure an ozone generator?
11How difficult is it to change the lamp and core?
12Does MicroPure have an electrical safety certification?
13If MicroPure is installed, is a whole house filter still required on the return air?
14What if the facility has round ducts - either flex or metal?
15Will MicroPure's UV or purification break down duct board or flexible duct?
16How do I tell of the lamp is burned out?
17Can the MicroPure be used as a counter display?
18How is the MicroPure connected to the 24 V supply in the air handler?
19Do I still need a UVC lamp on the coil if the MicroPure is installed?
Dust Free recommends both for optimal performance.
