BETTER AIR BY DESIGN

Innovative Technology for Indoor Air Purification

CASE STUDY: FROM PATENT TO PRODUCT

ADVANCES IN AIR PURIFICATION

Our Advanced Particle Removal Technology (APART), developed over five years by research scientists and technologists at the University of Washington’s Sensors, Energy, and Automation Laboratory, reinvents Electrostatic Precipitator technology.

APART™ eliminates permanent metal collection plates which are responsible for the performance limitations and maintenance costs of traditional ESP.  Instead, the technology employs a high-capacity disposable cartridge of dense foam plates, each encasing a conductive core.  As the conductive core draws charged particles inward, they are permanently captured in the open cell foam.

Constant Effectiveness

Unlike mechanical HEPA-style filtration, there is no filter to clog, so airflow is improved. The APART collection media has a longer life, as well. Over the cartridge life, APART provides constant effectiveness at a lower cost, and with less maintenance than comparable HEPA systems. 

Flexible Applications

In our own innovative products, and in partnership with companies and organizations, Agentis Air employs APART technology to improve air-filtration effectiveness.  Applications include portable air purifiers, commercial HVAC systems, air exchangers, and dynamic air-filtration systems using sophisticated, building-control sensor data.

Brio Air Purifier

Patented Advanced Particle Removal Technology from Agentis Air is the foundation for innovative solutions for consumer, commercial, and institutional environments.  Our Brio air purifier, shown here, delivers clean air using  APART technology.

Particle Removal with No Air Flow Drop Off

APART TECHNOLOGY: HOW IT WORKS

Polluted air is fan-drawn into the collection cartridge.

Particles gain an electrical charge as they pass the ionizing wire.

Charged particles are drawn out of the airflow and trapped in dense foam surrounding a conductive core.

Clean air flows back into the room.

With no filter to clog,  patented APART technology means better indoor air with less fitration media changes. 

EFFECTIVENESS ELEVATED

Pollution particles are drawn out of the airflow instead of being pushed through a mechanical filter. With no filter to clog, the Agentis Air solution stays consistently effective over the life of the collection cartridge.

ENERGY USE REDUCED

Advanced Particle Removal Technology requires less work by the fan motor and less energy usage.  In commercial applications the energy used can be half of that of a typical HEPA filtration system.

MAINTENANCE ELIMINATED

The long-lasting, disposable collection cartridge is easily removed and replaced with no tools, overcoming the primary drawback of traditional ESP systems.

SAVINGS INCREASED

Unlike traditional electrostatic technology, APART is commercially scalable with less labor. The expanded surface area and increased load capacity  make APART a more economical choice than HEPA.

PERFORMANCE OPTIMIZED

Adapting to real-time environmental conditions, our technology-enabled systems use sensor data to dynamically adjust filtration levels and associated energy use.

TECHNOLOGY APPLICATIONS

PORTABLE AIR PURIFIER

Patented technology for effectiveness that starts high and stays high. With no filter to clog, our portable air purifier maintains peak effectiveness—the most important feature an air purifier can have for home and office use. 

COMMERCIAL HVAC FILTER

A fully enabled HVAC system based on Advanced Particle Removal Technology results in marked performance improvements, including a consistently high effectiveness rate over six months of constant use.

DYNAMIC VARIABLE SMART FILTRATION

Adapting performance and power consumption to real-time environmental conditions in large spaces with sensor-based monitoring,  our innovative technology can deliver optimal performance while significantly reducing energy costs.

AIR EXCHANGE SYSTEM

In heavily polluted environments, replacing a mechanical filter with an Agentis Air APART-based system can increase the time between filter changes, reduce the required fan power, and save on energy. All while keeping effectiveness high.
