Castellex has been using its expert knowledge and vast experience, to design and manufacture specialized air filtration systems for many years. Now, they are using their industry-leading status to help fight the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Currently, Castellex have five air filtration stations on the market that have been specifically designed to clean the air in domestic and commercial properties, in order to protect people from allergens and contaminated air.
Each filtration system (including our three latest models; the Air40 Bio, Air70 Bio and Air90 Bio) have each been designed to capture and remove general air pollution, such as pollen, allergens, fine and ultrafine particles, Mold VOC’s (Volatile organic compounds), and even bacteria and some airborne viruses – such as COVID-19.
Trapping airborne viruses is a crucial step in protecting your family.
Before we go any further, we must make clear that Castellex air filtration systems are not a ‘magic pill’ that will protect you on their own from a virus. They are, however, an additional layer of protection that can help to increase your protection during this global pandemic. Castellex systems are an important aspect in the line of defence when used alongside important steps such as social distancing, washing your hands for 20 seconds, and disinfecting hard surfaces.
Here are our top five choices of Castellex Air Filters, so you can be sure you’re choosing the best option to help you protect your family at this time.
1 – The Air40 Bio
The Air40 Bio filtration system is three-stage basic, cost-effective and the most affordable of all air purifiers. It has been specially designed to reduce the concentration of airborne pollutants, including biological ones, in enclosed spaces – such as sitting rooms, bedrooms and small offices. While the Air40 Bio doesn’t trap or absorb VOCs and Odours, the HEPA filter and built-in UV light do work to actively fight and trap bacteria and viruses.
Air40 Bio is a practical solution if a person is self-isolating due to having disease symptoms, while in the same property as others who currently feel healthy. It works to reduce and remove the concentration of dangerous particles, biological pollutants, bacteria and viruses in the air. In turn reducing the chance of somebody nearby also catching the disease.
2 – The Air70 Bio
The Air70 Bio Four-stage air filtration system is the second in the Castellex line but is still cost-effective compared to other air purifiers that have also been designed to reduce airborne pollutants. The activated carbon filter built into Air70 Bio, traps and absorbs VOCs and Odours in the room, while the HEPA filter and build-in UV light trap and kill bacteria and viruses.
Air70 Bio has also been expertly designed to actively reduce airborne bacteria and viruses in enclosed spaces. Use of the Air70 will help to lower the risk of spreading disease throughout a home from sick to healthy people, where one or more may be self-isolating.
3 – The Air90 Bio
The Air90 Bio is the third in the Castellex line, and is one of the most specialized, as it’s design is based on advanced military technologies. It is the most sophisticated system in our Bio air filters line designed for the general public. Despite this, it remains affordable compared to most positive pressure air filtration stations that also include an external air inlet and overpressure valve.
Air90 Bio works to provide clean filtered air to either a whole building or separate room, by creating very gentle overpressure (positive pressure) which helps to prevent contaminated air from sinking throughout the gaps. Air90 Bio traps and absorbs VOCs and Odours into activated carbon filters, while the HEPA filter and built-in UV light fight bacteria and viruses.
It works to reduce and remove the concentration of dangerous particles, biological pollutants, bacteria and viruses in the air. It is a more advanced solution to protect healthy people from the spread of diseases, while in the same house as somebody self-isolating.
4 – The Air350 Bio
The Air350 Bio is an entry-level full capability NBC air filtration station. Its initial design was based on providing pure air to private survival shelters and bunkers, but has now been adapted for other domestic and commercial uses, and released to the public or general purchase, in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Air350 Bio uses an advanced military-grade technology design, and includes NBC positive pressure air filtration station equipped with external air inlet and overpressure valve. It works to effectively provide clean filtered air by creating very gentle overpressure (or positive pressure) which helps to prevent contaminated air from sinking throughout the gaps. In addition, Air350 Bio traps and absorbs VOCs and Odours into activated carbon filters, while the HEPA filter catches bacteria and viruses.
5 – The Air550 Bio
The Air550 Bio is a fully electronically (ICU) controlled, advanced 4 stages, NBC air filtration station. Designed to expertly integrate a daily mode and NBC air filtration mode into the same device, it was again initially designed for private survival shelters and bunkers. We have now chosen to adopt this model for other domestic and commercial uses and release it to the public or general purchase, in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Air550 Bio is our most advanced air filtration system. Expertly designed to include advanced military-grade technology, it includes NBC positive pressure air filtration station equipped with external air inlet and overpressure valve, and effectively provides clean filtered air by creating very gentle overpressure (or positive pressure) preventing contaminated air from sinking throughout the gaps. Plus, Air550 Bio traps and absorbs VOCs and Odours into activated carbon filters, while the HEPA filter catches bacteria and viruses
As stated above, each Castellex Air Bio series air filtration devices have been designed to trap, kill and prevent the spread of airborne biological contamination, including COVID-19. However, as only UV light can ensure a 100% bacteria/virus kill rate, some element of the bacteria/virus may still be alive when trapped in the layers of a HEPA filter.
