Air cleaners for clean and hygienically perfect air
A healthy indoor climate protects against illness and increases well-being
Inhale unpolluted air with every breath and recharge your batteries
Trotec's air cleaners utilize the latest filter technologies and improve the room air with their high-quality HEPA filter technology. At the workplace and at home the air cleaners minimize the air pollution in form of house dust and fine particulates, bacteria and airborne viruses. The exposure to pollutants, allergens and pollen is reduced and unpleasant odours are eliminated.
At the workplace and at home: Fresh, pure air is important for our health and wellbeing. Particles suspended in the room air such as fine dusts, allergens, pollen, mould spores as well as bacteria and viruses impair health and cause illnesses or complaints that can be avoided or alleviated with an efficient room air cleaner. Cigarette smoke and other smells also have a disturbing effect on our well-being. Air cleaners filter the room air not only in spring, when an increased amount of pollen enters indoor rooms, but all year round, thus creating a healthy indoor climate where we can breathe freely.
Our guidebook below provides information on the different application options for modern, efficient air cleaners of the AirgoClean® series. You will learn of the operating principle of these devices and find out which air cleaner best suits your requirements.
Clean air for your health – Feel free to take a deep breath!
Do you know how much air we are breathing every single day? More than 10,000 litres of air are required on a daily basis! This roughly corresponds to a capacity of more than 71 bath tubs. Each litre contains dust, at home even a great deal more than outside. Dust can both be visible and invisible. A carpet for instance can hold eight times of its own weight in dust. Bacteria and viruses in the air are always invisible to the naked eye. And there are other critical substances whirling through the air as well. Furniture, laminate or panels can be contaminated by formaldehyde which is emitted to the air in your home or office over several decades. In some cases the air in interior spaces can be polluted up to ten times more by dust and other particles than the air outside. Since most people spend approximately 80 percent of their time in closed rooms, clean and healthy room air is of vital importance. Tidying, vacuuming and ventilating a room often is just not enough to remove the pathogenic particles from the room. An air cleaner eliminates pollutants fully automatically and additionally improves the air quality. It will certainly benefit your health.
The proper air cleaner for allergy sufferers and asthmatics
Air contaminated with dust and pollutants can be positively dangerous for allergy sufferers and asthmatics. In addition, a house-dust allergy is one of the most difficult-to-treat types of allergies there are. This is also due to the vast number of dust sources in a home. There is no harm in dust alone. However, house dust mites are considered to be the cause of many complaints. One teaspoonful of bedroom dust contains an average of 1,000 house dust mites and 250,000 faeces. In general, roughly six milligrammes of new dust per square metre are formed in living spaces each day. Therefore, the application of a high-performance air cleaner is more than reasonable if you are aiming for fresher, cleaner air.
But even if you do not experience any health restrictions at this point, room air quality is a key factor for staying healthy. Bacteria and viruses are invisible and can be found everywhere. A desk for instance is populated with a hundred times more bacteria than a kitchen. During the flu season, one cubic metre of air can contain up to 15,000 particles of influenza viruses, and even novel viruses such as the SARS-CoV-2 virus spread mainly via indoor air. In office spaces the breathing air is further polluted by evaporations from adhesives, felt tips and toners.
Why highly efficient HEPA filter systems are important?
Air cleaners of the AirgoClean® series, which are fitted with multi-stage filter systems, provide very good results in room air improvement to help with allergies and other health issues. All air cleaners from Trotec are equipped with a two- or even three-stage filter combination.
Healthy indoor climate thanks to "dual and triple protection" filter technology
By combining several different filter technologies, the air cleaners of the AirgoClean® series reliably remove suspended particles and pathogens from the interior air. In addition to the highly effective HEPA filters of filter class 11, filtering bacteria, viruses, pollen, allergens, fine dust particles or mould spores up to a size of 1.0 micrometre from the room air with a separation efficiency of 95 %, the air cleaners AirgoClean® 10 E and AirgoClean® 15 E as well as AirgoClean® 100 E are fitted with an additional DACRON® filter (synthetic fibre prefilter), which is able to filter odours of slight to medium intensity, coarse house dust and animal hair from the room air.
For clean air – without unpleasant odours
As the most powerful device of the AirgoClean® series, the "triple protection" filter technology of the air cleaner AirgoClean® 100 E is additionally equipped with a carbon filter to effectively neutralise in particular tobacco odours, pet odours, kitchen odours, smoke odours as well as formaldehyde and solvent odours. The AirgoClean® 15 E from this air cleaner series can optionally be fitted with a carbon HEPA filter available as accessory.
The highly effective HEPA filters used in all air cleaners of the AirgoClean® series are DOP-tested. The operating principle of these filters is highly efficient. A comparison to HEPA-like filters emphasizes the difference. These filters may have a lower purchase price, but their application quickly reveals the disadvantages. Especially when you're dealing with biogenic and anthropogenic fine particulates of less than one micrometre cheaper imitations cannot demonstrate nearly as good a filtration capacity as true HEPA filters. A quality air cleaner should definitely retain dust and even more so minute particles. This prevents the infinitesimal particles from reaching your lungs and blood stream. Anyone who wants to use an air cleaner to help with allergies will quickly identify the positive properties of a HEPA filter as opposed to other air purification techniques.
Make sure to use original HEPA filters
When using HEPA filters it is crucial that they are true HEPA filters. The classification as true HEPA filters guarantees an optimum quality. Look out for the correct labelling when purchasing air cleaners and filters.
If the filter efficiency is merely described as "HEPA-like" or as "comparable to HEPA filters", caution should be exercised. It may yield less than satisfactory results.
Trotec's air cleaners AirgoClean® 10 E, AirgoClean® 15 E and AirgoClean® 100 E on the other hand are equipped with HEPA filters of protection class 11 promising perfect results when it comes to room air filtering.
Which sizes of hazardous particles call for which filter classes?
Filtration efficiencies and pollutant particle sizes
Whether pollen, fine dust, tobacco smoke, germs or even asbestos – with the right filter class and the appropriate combination of different filters, virtually any type of pollutant can be filtered from the air.
Pollutant particles in the air can be classified according to their size. The diagram shows a practice-oriented overview of which filtration efficiencies and filter combinations must be used for which levels of room air contamination.
(Indication of size in micrometres, one micrometre equals a thousandth of a millimetre).
Air cleaner plus ionizer:
Efficient room air purification and air quality improvement
The operation of air purification units with an integrated ionizer is characterized by thoroughness and reliability. The ionizer produces negative ions that have an anti-static effect. Thanks to these ions the particles in the air become negatively charged, which makes them heavier than the surrounding air. As a result they gradually settle on the ground. Afterwards they can simply be vacuumed off. Speaking of vacuum-cleaning: Quite often more dust is raised in the process than sucked in. But using the ionizer technology this can be prevented, the heavier dust can be vacuumed off without difficulty. Applying this technology the room air is purified successfully and effectively. In addition, the air is even enriched with active oxygen.
Fine dust – an invisible danger for the lung, heart and vessels, more dangerous and more widespread than previously assumed
Fine dust is on everyone's lips and that in the truest sense of the word. The German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina demands additional efforts from environmental and health policy makers to further reduce the air pollution with particulate matter. They state that the sources of fine dust are more diverse and the resulting damage to health is more serious than previously assumed.

Fine dust favours the development of serious diseases
Fine dust particles, also known as particulate matter, are respirable particles with a diameter of less than 2.5 µm. The smaller these fine particles are, the deeper they can penetrate the body and organ systems. Particulate matter can cause inflammation in the bronchi and lungs, and slow down children's lung growth. According to the Leopoldina, other consequences of particulate matter include heart attacks, strokes and accelerated arteriosclerosis. Inflammatory processes have also been observed in the brain and have been linked to a faster development of dementia in older people as well as delayed intelligence development in children. In addition to inflammatory reactions, fine dust can also cause damage to the cardiovascular system in other ways.
Particulate matter is responsible for 15 percent of global corona deaths
Researchers have long suspected that the pollution with particulate matter has an influence on the course of disease in COVID-19 patients, since particulate matter weakens the immune system and attacks the lung tissue. This is now confirmed by new research results from the renowned University of Oxford, published in the medical journal "Cardiovascular Research". The results show that there is a correlation between high pollution with particulate matter and an increased risk of dying from COVID-19. The scientists have calculated that on average 15 percent of global corona deaths are due to victims having inhaled polluted air over a long period of time. The research results suggest that particulate matter pollution is an important factor increasing the mortality risk from COVID-19.
Clean air is essential to life.
However, even the so-called "fresh air" outside can damage our health and enter our lives through doors and windows. It is scientifically proven that air cleaners of the AirgoClean® series reliably remove these and other harmful suspended particles from the air in the room and breathing air, thus ensuring a healthy environment at work or at home.
