AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 HDS Smoke Air Purifier

Enhanced Protection from Tobacco and Wood Smoke

  • Upgraded version of the AllerAir 5000 DS
  • Removes harmful airborne particles, fine ash, lingering odours and over 400 toxic chemicals found in tobacco smoke, including benzene, nicotine, arsenic and cyanide
  • Also adsorbs combustion chemicals, toxic gases and harmful pollutants found in marijuana smoke, wood smoke, vehicle exhaust and smog
  • Unique tar-trapping pre-filter captures tar and other large particles, preserving the life of the more expensive HEPA and carbon filters
  • Exclusive new Super-HEPA filter has been completely re-engineered to enhance the filtration of smaller particles (99.99% down to 0.1 microns), achieving better-than-HEPA performance for smoke and smog particulates
  • Now features an incredible 24 lbs. of activated carbon in a 3.5 in. deep bed, specially blended to handle the complex chemical composition of tobacco, marijuana and wood smoke
  • Ideal for smoking areas, rooms containing fireplaces or woodstoves, and homes in communities that rely heavily on wood for fuel
  • Also available is the AllerAir AirMedic Pro 6 HDS Smoke, a slightly larger unit with more carbon (28 lbs) for better adsorption of smoke toxins (full Pro 5 HDS and Pro 6 HDS comparison in chart below)

The AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 HDS Smoke air purifier is an upgraded version of the older AllerAir 5000 DS model. The Pro 5 HDS is specifically tailored for the complex make-up of cigarette, cigar and marijuana smoke, removing harmful particles, fine ash, lingering odours and over 400 different toxic chemicals found in smoke, including benzene, formaldehyde, nicotine, arsenic and cyanide. Used extensively in wildfire zones and for fire restoration applications, this exceptional air purifier can also be used in homes with fireplaces and woodstoves to capture harmful gases such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), formaldehyde and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

The new AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 HDS air purifier features a unique tar-trapping pre-filter that grabs tar, resins and larger particles, significantly extending the life of the subsequent HEPA and activated carbon filters. The AirMedic Pro 5 HDS has also been upgraded with AllerAir’s advanced Super-HEPA filter, which does a far better job than regular medical grade HEPA filters at removing extremely small particles (99.99% effective down to 0.1 microns). As a result, the Pro 5 HDS is ideal for filtering out fine ash and combustion particles from home HVAC systems and wood-burning appliances, as well as from vehicle exhaust and smog.

The AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 HDS air purifier now features an upgraded 3.5" extra-deep, 24 lb. specially-blended activated carbon filter. Because the contaminated air is drawn diagonally through the carbon bed, 5.5” of actual “dwell time” is created, significantly enhancing the AirMedic Pro 5 HDS’s ability to adsorb VOCs, toxic chemicals and gaseous pollutants found in smoke and smog. An optional ultraviolet (UV) germicidal lamp can also be added to the AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 HDS to help control airborne microbes (e.g., bacteria, viruses).

The AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 HDS is easy to maintain (the pre-filter can simply be removed through the bottom of the unit and replaced), and because it uses individual HEPA and carbon filters, they can be changed at different time intervals (2 to 3 years for the carbon and 3 to 5 years for the HEPA), making this air purifier economical to operate. The cylindrical shape of the AirMedic Pro 5 HDS maximizes air circulation, a new variable speed motor allows for total air flow control, while casters provide easy maneuverability.

Built to last, the AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 HDS air purifier has as an all-metal housing that eliminates toxic off-gassing and a baked-on powder-coated finish for safety and durability. In addition, the newly-designed Super-HEPA filter is made from a strong, flexible material that is wrapped tightly around the carbon filter, making it more robust than traditional HEPA filters which consist of rigid pleats. As an added bonus, there are no adhesives, bonding agents or plastics used in the filter, making it a better choice for those who are sensitive to chemicals and odours.

The AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 HDS air purifier is ideal for controlling tobacco smoke in smoking areas and for handling wood smoke in rooms with a fireplace or woodstove. It is also a great choice for homes located in communities that rely heavily on wood for fuel. Because this air purifier should be operated at a low fan speed to maximize “dwell time,” it is also relatively quiet.

Available in five colours (copper, pewter, white, sandstone and black), the AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 HDS blends easily into almost any décor.

“I purchased an AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 HDS air purifier from you several months ago to handle cigarette smoke issues. Just wanted to tell you that I love it, I am a heavy smoker and the Pro 5 HDS really is helping! I pretty much just leave it on high setting all the time – it really helps clear the air and the smoke no longer lingers.”
W. Reitano, Kars ON

“I am very happy with the AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 HDS air purifier that I purchased from you. Thanks for carrying great products that I can rely on.”

** An Important Word on Air Flow Rates and Room Coverage for the AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 HDS Air Purifier:

Many retailers and manufacturers overstate maximum room coverage figures by calculating them with air flow rates measured without filters installed (i.e., fan output) or with too low a number of air exchanges per hour to properly clean the room of particulate pollutants. Modern Alchemy Air Purifiers believes in stating the actual delivered air flow rates for the air purifiers we sell, as well as realistic room coverage figures calculated at effective air cleaning levels. Accordingly, we recommend that the Allerair AirMedic Pro 5 HDS be used in rooms of up to 140 sq. ft. (for premium particle cleaning or 280 sq. ft. (for general purpose particle filtration).

For chemicals, gases and odours, adsorption is best achieved at a lower number of air exchanges per hour. More “dwell time” is created at lower fan speeds, permitting more toxins to be trapped by the activated carbon. As a result, stated room dimensions are not as critical for chemical, gas and odour concerns.

Also note that air purifier performance should not be judged by air flow rates and room maximums alone. Many features that make an air purifier more effective at cleaning the air actually reduce the air flow rate. For example, higher grade HEPA filters, well-sealed filtration systems and large amounts of carbon all increase air resistance and reduce delivered air flow rates.
