Husqvarna Group LTD

Andrew Miles

Husqvarna Group LTD


Clean air is vital to our health – yet, the majority of the harmful airborne particles are odourless and invisible to the naked eye, making it difficult to assess whether we are exposed to unclean air. According to the WHO – World Health Organisation, air pollution has become the world’s single biggest environmental health risk, and the EPA – Environmental Protection Agency, informs that indoor air is more polluted than outdoor air. With that in mind, we tend to spend 90% of our time indoors: to create a safer indoor environment, the usage of air cleaners is endorsed by numerous authorities (e.g. EPA¹ and WHO²).

Originally designed to clean air from silica dust and other hazardous particles at construction sites, the Husqvarna air cleaners can substantially improve ambient air quality in most indoor facilities.

How does an air cleaner work?

The air cleaner constantly draws in the air from the room, processes it through a pre-filter which retains the larger particles and then filters it through the sensitive HEPA 13 filter, retaining the smallest particles. The cleaned air is afterwards released into the room again. Depending on the desired frequency, the entire air of the room can be cleaned every few minutes.

What kind of particles are in the air that can be caught by an air cleaner?

The air cleaner filter is extremely efficient and captures up to 99.97% of all airborne particles bigger than 0.3 microns. Thus able to largely clean the air of plant spores, fungus spores (mould particles), bacteria, tobacco smoke and partially even some viruses.
