Nuaire carbon filters improve IAQ

Nuaire believes that its IAQ-BOX range of inline carbon filters is a step forward in both air-filtration and resistance levels for carbon-filter technology. These filters are designed to complement Nuaire’s MVHR range and remove 99.5% of nitrogen dioxide from the intake air, as verified by the BRE. They also remove pollutants such as sulphur dioxide, ammonia and VOCs — most of which are produced by vehicle exhaust emissions and through industrial processes.

A double-wide carbon filter (IAQ-BOX-D) is claimed to be an industry first. Its greater surface area removes more nitrogen dioxide and helps lower air resistance.

Optional PM10 and PM2.5 pre-filters remove up to 95% of particulate matter, with the filters inside Nuaire’s MVHR system acting as a third barrier to airborne particles.

The carbon media is held in one block, rather than a row of individual filters, making removal and replacement quicker and easier. IAQ-BOX filter have a life of two years.

There are two sizes, for larger and smaller homes, and both units are 170 mm deep.

The configuration of one spigot in and two out for the larger size helps reduce pressure drop. It acts as a plenum and reduces in-duct noise.
