AIRVIA Medical is certified ECP Air Cleaners / NF French standard

AIRVIA Medical has successfully passed the European standard ECP ACL Air Cleaners (and French standard “NF536 Air Purifiers”) for its AERO 100 and PRO 150 models. Certificate link

Specifically, what does this certification mean? Simply put, our products have been tested and certified for their efficiency and cleaning power, their safety, their energy efficiency, as well as their acoustic level.

For those who are curious or enjoy diving into the technical data, you will find an account of various tests performed in the laboratory below.

Air flow (CADR) and energy efficiency

This hydraulic test was carried out by CETIAT (the Technical Centre for Hydraulic and Thermal Industries). It verifies that the data published in terms of power (air flow) and electricity consumption are in line with reality.

Fine particles

Also conducted by the CETIAT lab, this test allows us to validate the filtration efficiency of our air purifiers against fine particles:

Chemical pollution and safety

This study was conducted by the TERA Environment laboratory in order to analyse the effectiveness of our air purifiers on various Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs): acetaldehyde, acetone, heptane, toluene and formaldehyde. The graph below shows the concentrations of these compounds which descend very rapidly near 0 when the purifier is in use.

The laboratory also quantifies potential degradation by-products: ozone, NOx, and CO are well below the limit of quantification (equivalent to zero concentration). This is excellent news for the health of our customers!

Germs

This study was also conducted by the TERA Environment laboratory to analyse the effectiveness of our air purifiers on various microorganisms. The study found an efficacy of 99.57% on fungi and 99.25% on bacteria.

In accordance with the B44-200 standard, the following 2 microorganisms were tested:

Allergens

This study was also conducted by the TERA Environment laboratory to analyse the effectiveness of our air purifiers on various allergens. The study found an efficacy of 99.77% on allergens. Specifically, the laboratory measured the aerial concentrations of cat allergens (Fel d1).

Acoustic levels

This acoustic test was carried out by CETIAT (the Technical Centre for Aeraulic and Thermal Industries). It makes it possible to verify that the data announced in terms of acoustic power are in line with reality.
