One HEPA filter is not the other

HEPA is an abbreviation for high-efficiency particulate air and stands for air filters that block at least 85% of all dust particles of 0.3 micrometers (µm). Incidentally, particles smaller than 0.3 µm are also captured better than the indicated percentage, but that is a very technical story. It is important to know that there are different classes of HEPA filters.

HEPA filter classes

The HEPA filter classes are specified in European Standard 1822: 2009 of the European Union.

HEPA class
Retention (total)
E10> 85%
E11> 95%
E12> 99,5%
H13> 99,95%


AIR8 air purifiers use HEPA H13 filters which is exceptionally high compared to many other air purifying systems.

Air purification prevents the spread of

Pollen and other allergic substances
Pathogens such as influenza and coronaviruses
Particulate matter, and other irritating particles
Volatile toxins
Stench and unpleasant odors

Does the AIR8 mobile air purifier work against corona?

We guarantee the highest efficiency in killing bacteria and viruses (such as the corona virus) through the application of multiple filter and disinfection technologies. Our medical grade HEPA NANO filters remove 99.97% of all harmful particles from the air.
A one hundred percent guarantee cannot be given by anyone, not even the manufacturers of the corona vaccines. That is why it remains important to maintain the hygiene measures recommended by the government. Here too, we at Portaal Check can help with our fever detection systems and hygiene stations.

How complicated is the installation?

You take the mobile air purifier out of the packaging, put the plug in the socket and press the on button. Nothing more is needed. See the instructional videos here. (ps: we already remove the plastic from the filter package for you 😀. Really plug & play 🔌.)

Do you also need a mobile air purifier if the windows can be opened?

Good ventilation with outside air is an important means for a healthy working and living environment. However, opening windows does not guarantee that fresh air will spread well throughout the room. In winter, ventilation leads to (considerably) higher heating costs. In addition, you can bring in polluted air in this way; think of pollen and particulate matter.

How often do I have to replace the filter package?

For the 260i, 280 and 1200i, you must replace the filter pack after 3000 hours. With average use - only during office hours - this amounts to once a year. The monitor shows what percentage of the life of the filter package remains.
By the way, replacing the filter package is very easy. If you still dread this or would you like us to replace the filters and check the mobile air purifiers once more, please contact one of our advisers.

Our company is closed due to the corona measures. Why should I buy air purifiers now?

By taking precautions now, you give your employees the confidence that they will soon be able to return to the office safely. In addition, there is a good chance that the relaxation of the measures will result in a run on mobile air purifiers, which could lead to a significant increase in delivery time.

How noisy are your mobile air purifiers?

The AIR8 is an extremely quiet air purifier. For example, the noise level of the 260i Nano and the 280 Nano is less than 45 dB (Living room, bedroom, quiet office, quiet residential area, birds at sunrise, soft buzz in a classroom)
The 1200i Pro produces more noise due to its very large cleaning capacity, but it remains within the range 25 - 65 dB. For comparison: air conditioning (50-75 dB), normal conversation, washing machine (50-75 dB), dishwasher (55-70 dB).

What does a filter package cost?

A filter package (pre-filter, HEPA13 filter and carbon filter) costs only 40 euros for the 260i Nano and 280 Nano (excluding VAT and shipping costs). You pay 150 euros for the filter package of the 1200i PRO.

With a pressure loss of 52% through the HEPA filter and 26% through the carbon filter, it must be quite an engine

Indeed, it is true that HEPA requires a lot of engine power.
That is also the reason that existing mechanical ventilation systems cannot handle a HEPA filter without increasing the motor capacity.
The AIR8 units deliver a calculated CADR which stands for Clean Air Delivery Rate. The m3 of purified air that AIR8 provides is not just the capacity of the motor, or just the capacity of the filter, but it is the effective 99.97% filtered air that the unit is guaranteed to deliver as a whole.
So yes, the AIR8 units have exceptionally good motors 😊.
