Rensair launches smarter solution for indoor air pollution
Indoor Air Quality specialist Rensair has launched an affordable, WiFi connected air purifier for smaller indoor spaces. Lightweight (9.5Kg) with heavyweight performance (clean air delivery rate of 460cu.m/hr), the Compact is ideal for small-to-medium-sized enterprises, conference rooms, doctor & dental surgeries, classrooms and homes.
Using Rensair's proven, hospital-grade technology, the Compact combines HEPA filtration with germicidal UVC light in a smaller, quieter package. It is highly effective in removing a minimum of 99.97%-plus of pathogens and other forms of airborne particulate matter, including bacteria, pollen, dust and mould.
Five airflow speeds offer maximum flexibility, while 360 degree outflow ensures that clean air penetrates the entire room no matter where the unit is placed.
"Compact is definitely the strong silent type," says Christian Hendriksen, co-founder & CEO at Rensair. "Despite powerful air circulation, it's engineered to be very quiet, a barely audible 32dBA on the lowest setting. But it has brains as well as brawn and can be operated remotely to optimise clean air while conserving energy.
“Further IoT upgrades will be available soon."
Using a smart app, multiple Compact devices can be programmed to automatically adjust the fan setting according to prevailing particle concentrations, switch to the maximum setting between scheduled meetings, or start/stop working based on location and time. Real-time alerts can be set to manage maintenance schedules and to reset the filter monitor after the filter has been replaced.
Matthew Johnson, professor of atmospheric chemistry at the University of Copenhagen and chief scientific advisor at Rensair, says:
"The air purification market is unregulated - and, as a result, is rife with performance overclaims. That's why it's important to have independent certification. The Danish Technological Institute's tests on Compact resulted in 99.99% of particles removed from a 20cu.m room within 30 minutes".
Rensair's range of air purifiers now extends from the mighty Max, a bespoke industrial unit capable of 1,000cu.m/hr, to the miniature AirBubbl for vehicle occupants and personal spaces. Having completed a $7m Series A financing round in May, the company is intent on establishing clean air as a human right, protecting and enhancing lives through proven clean air technology. Key markets include offices, healthcare, care homes, schools and transport.
With operations in the UK, Europe, the US and Asia, Rensair provides clean air for every space: from hospitals, dental practices, schools and gyms, to hospitality venues, hotels, restaurants and retail outlets. It collaborates with customers to develop the optimum indoor air quality solution for meeting official standards, preventing infection, conserving energy and maximising workforce productivity.
The company undertakes IAQ audits and takes into account floor plans, existing HVAC systems, occupancy rates and noise tolerance, before recommending a tailor-made configuration based on its portable, modular units.
“As well as protecting health, Rensair looks after the bottom line,” says the company. “By partially offsetting HVAC mechanical ventilation with air purification, we can save our customers 40% on energy consumption. Purified air boosts cognitive function, information retention and workforce productivity, while reducing absenteeism, adding incalculable value across all sectors.”
