Advanced Particle Removal Technology is the starting point for better indoor air.
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.
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.
The long-lasting collection cartridge is easily removed and replaced with no tools, overcoming the primary drawback of traditional ESP systems: labor-intensive cleaning of permanent metal plates.
ADVANCES IN AIR PURIFICATION
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.
Over the cartridge life, APART provides constant effectiveness at a lower cost, with less energy usage, and with less maintenance than comparable HEPA systems. Unlike mechanical HEPA-style filtration, there is no filter to clog, so airflow is improved for lower energy use, lower cost, and quieter operation; The APART collection media has a longer life, as well.
In partnership with companies and organizations, Agentis Air employs APART technology to improve the air-filtration capabilities of a wide range of products and systems. Potential applications include portable air purifiers, commercial HVAC systems, air exchangers, and dynamic air-filtration systems using sophisticated, building-control sensor data.
Patented Advanced Particle Removal Technology from Agentis Air is the foundation for innovative solutions for consumer, commercial, and institutional environments. The APART Collection Cartridge, shown here, is used in the Brio portable air purifier.
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.
APART vs TRADITIONAL ESP

Commercially scalable with less labor
Expanded surface area
Increased load capacity
Eliminates particle re-entry into the air
APART vs HEPA FILTRATION
Significantly less energy usage
Quieter, with less fan noise
More economical, longer life
PORTABLE AIR PURIFIER
Patented technology for effectiveness that starts high and stays high. With no filter to clog, our portable air purifier is affordable, quiet, and energy efficient—key criteria 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.
DYNAMIC VARIABLE SMART FILTRATION
Adapting to real-time environmental conditions in large spaces with sensor-based monitoring, our innovative technology can deliver optimal performance while 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.
