Aura air attacking COVID-19
Aura air attacking COVID-19 Aura Air

An Israeli invention, Aura Air, has launched what it describes as “the world’s smartest and most intensive air filtration system for under £500 RRP.” Its unique “6-stage” filter system and patented smart air quality algorithms are combined with industry standard sensors, monitoring both internally AND outside (using a 3rd party API), as well as CO & fire detection. And it is all built into one compact unit, make it a game changer in what up until now was a traditional market.

The invention targets the medical industry, specifically dentists and clinicians, where COVID-19 is a significant risk or poses a risk of another potential outbreak.

The intelligent aspect of this air purification system is that you enter the specific needs of the users into its app, via a short set of questions, and the system automatically tunes itself to meet their specific health needs. It will warn you when it is not safe to go for a run or open the windows. It adjusts its settings according to air entry from doors and windows to detect high pollen levels.

Aura Air – the world’s smartest, industrial strength, hang on the wall, “6-stage” air purification system, eradicates 99.98% of airborne particulates down to 0.3μm and up to 99% of viruses, mold and bacteria. Its integrated sensors and supporting iOS and Android apps provide real-time, indoor versus outdoor monitoring of CO, smoke, and fire as well as PM10, PM2.5, humidity, CO2, VOC, SO2, NO2 and O3 levels, and two unhealthy pollution levels outside of the building.

In an office, this intelligence can be used to control when the air conditioning system takes air from outside, if the pollution or pollen levels are considered excessive.

The B2B version of the iOS and Android app is designed to address and monitor multiple units over one site, or across a local authority, or in the future – an entire city. The unit measures just 37.5 x 37.5 x 15cm, is designed to hang on the wall or on a ceiling, and is powered by a standard mains plug. Each unit will purify a 120m3 area (50m2) by passing that total air volume through the filter 2.5 times per hour.

It features two patented technologies, a special copper inlay, built into Aura Air’s Ray Filter, and a SterionizerTM, both specifically targeted at significantly reducing mold, bacteria, viruses, fungus, and MRSA. In addition, its hospital-grade HEPA filter reduces CO2 and removes fine and large pollution particulates (PM2.5 & PM10 sizes) as well as pollen. The integrated carbon filter removes volatile organic compounds (VOC) and bad odours.

Whilst Aura Air is expecting huge take-up amongst dentists, there are other industries such as education, aviation, and retail that will benefit from this invention, especially as restrictions start to ease in the UK and other parts of Europe.
