Austin-based AirBox Air Purifier (AirBox), which manufactures and markets commercial-grade portable plug-in air purifiers, has entered into a partnership with PureAware, a portable air purifier fleet management solution.
Through this partnership, AirBox will equip their Peak Series units with a small, embedded PureAware wireless monitor that will allow facilities management teams to control all of their AirBox units from a single dashboard.
AirBox said that this technology allows users to set purifier schedules based on room occupancy, monitor duration until needed filter replacement, monitor respiratory aerosol loads using CO2 sensors, and monitor other air quality variables like room temperature and humidity. Additionally, the air purifiers can be controlled remotely and send notifications for filter changes or complications.
The company highlighted that the new smart fleet feature offers multiple advantages including:
-Reduced filter costs related to air purifier run time and occupancy-based scheduling
-Reduced energy costs with occupancy-based scheduling
-Easy filter replacement tracking for the entire fleet with timely alerts
-Cellular connectivity for seamless installation and secure connection
-Scheduling options to allow administrators options to control all purifiers, groups of purifiers, or individual units
The AirBox Peak Series units will be the first of AirBox’s product offering to be equipped with this technology. AirBox and PureAware plan to extend this capability to all AirBox series in the near future.
“WellAware is excited to partner with AirBox to extend our Industrial monitoring capabilities and expertise into a new market,” said John McDonald, WellAware’s head of product. “It was our goal to build an easy to use, Smart Management platform that makes optimizing large, distributed air purification systems simple and more effective, and we are pleased with the outcomes customers are experiencing with Airbox.”
“With the numerous customers we have purchasing fleets of air purifiers to keep their buildings healthy, we saw an immediate need for a Smart Management system like this,” said AirBox VP of Sales and Safe Air Plan expert Adam Smith. “Our clients are being urged from all angles to act on their IAQ to keep building occupants safe. At this point, air purifiers are an investment in the health of your employees, customers, school children and teachers—With this Smart Management capability, you are protecting your investment and providing assurance that your purifiers are performing to the best of their ability.”
The firm also noted that all AirBox Peak units are manufactured in an EPA-registered facility, are FDA-compliant, and utilize certified HEPA technology. The Peak Series has also been scientifically tested and proven to remove 99.99% of dangerous airborne particles including infectious agents and pathogens, pollen, chemicals, mold, and dust from the breathing zone, AirBox said.
