AIR WASHER AW 10 S
3-in-1 comfort device for air humidification, air purification and odour elimination – increased well-being through naturally washed breathing air
Additional health protection through a threefold improvement in indoor air quality
Humidified and hygienically perfect breathing air is pure life energy and at the same time a protective shield against airborne diseases! In one cubic centimetre of air, you could find up to 50,000 particles floating – such as fine dust and pollen, but also airborne bacteria or viruses. And since we spend 80 % of our time indoors, breathing around 8,000 litres of air every day, the air washer AW 10 S provides reliable protection against pollen, animal hair, house dust and allergens in the air.
Increasing well-being and relieving allergy symptoms
The air washer AW 10 S improves the air quality in rooms up to 25 m² or 63 m³ in several ways. In contrast to conventional air cleaners, which additionally dry out the already dry heated air in the cold season, the AW 10 S simultaneously cleans and humidifies the air on the model of nature. Particles contained in the sucked-in air are bound with a film of water and washed off by a rotating humidifier disk in the 9 litre water tank. This natural cleaning process in clear water frees the air from pollen, house dust as well as animal hair.
Breathing freely – without irritating allergens in the air
Natural air washing in a water bath removes allergens from the room air, which can cause allergic reactions such as swelling of the airways, burning eyes or a runny nose in allergy sufferers, children with sensitive airways and people living in households with animals. Air humidification, which is part of the air washing process, also reduces the risk of aerogenic virus transmission, strengthens the body's natural defences and increases well-being.
Best indoor air quality for spending quality time together
With the air washer AW 10 S, you are ideally equipped to constantly maintain the pollution of the room air at a healthy feel-good level in order to protect your family, employees, customers or guests. Fully automatically, an intelligent combination sensor measures the most important room air parameters and controls the necessary air purification and humidification intensity in automatic mode. The integrated and easy-to-clean water tank, designed for continuous level measurement, has a capacity of 9 litres, which is sufficient for up to 24 hours of humidification operation. Additionally, the humidifier disks can be cleaned conveniently and easily in the dishwasher. Three operating modes, a fan that can be adjusted in three stages, and other comfort functions allow you to improve the room air according to your individual requirements.
Everything that improves the air quality – for a healthier life
Just like individual well-being, the indoor air quality depends on various factors. For this reason, the air humidification and odour elimination functions of the air washer AW 10 S can be adjusted individually. Just as the personal environment and season demand.
Multi-stage air purification and odour elimination
A multi-stage, combined air purification system removes pollen, house dust, animal hair and subtle smells from the room air.
- Purification stage 1: The pre-filter removes coarse particles from the room air.
- Purification stage 2: Natural air washing in a clear water bath reliably removes house dust, pollen and animal hair from the air and simultaneously keeps it ideally humidified.
- Purification stage 3: The plasma ionizer eliminates unpleasant odours.
Humidification with optional plasma ionisation
The combined air humidification with a capacity of 400 ml/h and air purification can be adjusted manually. To eliminate unpleasant odours, plasma ionisation can be optionally switched on when needed. The comfort display on the control panel shows the current room air humidity in the range from 20 to 60 %. When the comfort zone (50 % relative humidity) is reached, the device stops humidification automatically.
Convenient automatic mode
The best is just good enough when it comes to your health? Then let the sensor-controlled automatic mode take control of the air quality. An intelligent sensor continuously measures the air quality and humidity and adjusts them to the best possible range without your intervention.
Restful night mode
Restful sleep is guaranteed: in night mode, the AW 10 S operates ultra-silently, and reliably frees the room air of pollutants while maintaining an ideal humidity level based on the natural principle of self-regulating cold evaporation. This way your skin, nose and eyes are protected against drying out and you can benefit from a good night's sleep.
Tip: SecoSan stick for perfectly hygienical water quality
The optionally available SecoSan stick ensures a hygienically perfect water quality in the water tank for up to 6 months. An optical change indicator on the control panel informs you fully automatically as soon as the stick needs to be replaced. The SecoSan Stick 10 "made in Germany" prevents the reproduction of germs, algae, mould and bacteria in all water containers with a volume of up to 10 litres.
Clean breathing air is the fuel of a healthy body. The air washer AW 10 S ensures naturally clean room air in both private and professional environments.
Natural operating principle of air washing: cleaning, humidification, odour neutralisation
By combining the air purification processes, the air washer AW 10 S permanently ensures naturally clean air.
Air washing inspired by nature
Already in the first cleaning cycle, the polluted room air is washed clean in a natural way – without any chemical additives. To do so, the device sucks in room air contaminated with particles and pollutants and passes it through a pre-filter to a rotating humidifier disk, where the contaminated air is wetted with a film of water. Contaminations such as pollen or dust stick to the wet disk and are washed off in the water bath by the cleaning power of natural tap water. A positive side effect of this natural air washing process is the automatic humidification of the room air. The interaction of air washing and air humidification noticeably improves the indoor climate and well-being.
Plasma ionisation against odours
With the plasma ionisation, which can be switched on as required, another cleaning cycle based on the principle of nature starts. Comparable to a "purifying thunderstorm", both positive ions (hydrogen) and negative ions (oxygen) are produced and blown into the room together with the air that has been washed clean in the water bath. The bioactive bunching of ions directly in the room air, to form so-called cluster ions, causes water to be extracted from the pollutants in the ambient air upon contact. This way, pollutants and odours contained in the room air are eliminated.
Optimally humidified room air protects against viruses and pathogenic germs
Scientific studies prove the double protective effect of an optimally regulated indoor air quality in infection prevention. Pathogenic viruses such as the influenza or SARS-CoV-2 virus are released via so-called aerosols when we breathe or speak, and can remain suspended in the room for up to several hours if there is insufficient ventilation. Invisible, but still highly infectious.
At a humidity level between 40 and 60 percent, airborne viruses are inactivated within seconds
The infectivity of virus-infected aerosols depends decisively on the prevailing humidity level. If the room air is too dry, aerosols shrink and float in the room air for a longer time due to their low weight – before being inhaled unnoticed. Optimally humidified air, on the other hand, changes the salt concentration of the aerosol particles so that the contained pathogen becomes harmless immediately after contact with the air.
Permanently moistened mucous membranes are the best and most natural infection protection against pathogenic germs in the air
The body is not defenceless against the dangers of viruses and bacteria. It has its own defence mechanisms to protect itself against pathogens in the air. The mucous membranes of the mouth, nose and throat of our airways are a central component of our body's own immune defence and, when optimally moistened, provide highly effective protection against pathogens in the air. Too dry room air, on the other hand, withdraws the necessary water from the mucus layer, so that the previously protective mucus layer becomes hard and infectious pathogens can penetrate the body almost unhindered.
Therefore, increasing the room air humidity to around 50 % minimises the risk of infection by airborne pathogens in multiple ways in the private and professional environment.
