AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 Plus Vocarb Air Purifier

Enhanced Protection from Harmful VOCs

  • Upgraded version of the AllerAir 5000 Vocarb model
  • Designed specifically to reduce formaldehyde, benzene, vinyl chloride and other harmful Volatile Organic Compounds found to some extent in all homes and offices
  • Offers superior protection against off-gassing from newly-built homes, fresh paint, carpets, flooring, furniture, upholstery and electronic equipment, as well as chemical fumes and VOCs from thousands of commonly used household and personal care products

From cleansers and paint fumes to off-gassing from formaldehyde-treated furniture and PVC-encased electronic equipment, most indoor air is permeated with potentially harmful chemicals and gases, many of which are odourless or even pleasant smelling. The new AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 Plus Vocarb air purifier (an enhanced version of the AllerAir 5000 Vocarb), is designed specifically to adsorb formaldehyde, benzene, vinyl chloride and other Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) produced by commonly used household products, newly-built homes, paint, carpets, flooring, upholstery, drapery and office equipment, as well as almost all art and hobby materials.

The new AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 Plus Vocarb air purifier features a powerful, four-stage filtration system that uses 18 lbs. of specially blended activated MAC-B™ carbon impregnated for more effective VOC removal. While most air purifier brands on the market require gaseous pollutants to pass five times or more through the carbon filter before being completely removed from the air, the AirMedic Pro 5 Plus Vocarb is able to capture the same amount of toxins in a single pass through the filter. This is because the Pro 5 Plus Vocarb draws the contaminated air diagonally through an upgraded 3.0 in. carbon bed, achieving 4.5 in. of dwell time,” allowing for far greater chemical, gas and odour adsorption.

The enhanced AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 Plus Vocarb model also boasts AllerAir’s exclusive new Super-HEPA filter, which is designed to eliminate 99.99% of airborne particles down to 0.1 microns, offering better-than-HEPA protection from pollen, dust, mould spores and pet dander, as well as harmful particles from home HVAC systems and combustion appliances. An optional ultraviolet (UV) germicidal lamp can be added to the AirMedic Pro 5 Plus Vocarb to help control airborne microbes (e.g., bacteria, viruses).

In addition to being able to filter out smaller particles more effectively, AllerAir’s new Super-HEPA filter is designed to be more flexible than rigidly-pleated HEPA filters are, making it more robust and resilient to damage. And unlike standard medical grade HEPA filters, the Super-HEPA filtration system contains no adhesives, glues, binders or plastics, making it more suitable for individuals who are chemically-sensitive. In addition, the all-metal housing on the AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 Plus Vocarb air purifier minimizes any toxic off-gassing, while the baked-on powder-coated finish guarantees durability for years to come.

The AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 Plus Vocarb is simple to maintain (the pre-filter can easily be removed and vacuumed), and because it uses individual HEPA and carbon filters, they can be changed at different time intervals, making the unit more economical to operate. The cylindrical shape of the AllerAir Pro 5 Plus Vocarb maximizes air circulation, a new variable speed motor allows for total air flow control, while casters provide easy maneuverability.

Simply styled with performance in mind, the AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 Plus Vocarb air purifier is offered in five colours; pewter, copper, white, sandstone and black.

To sum up, the AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 Plus Vocarb air purifier is our top recommendation for the abatement of VOCs, as well as other airborne chemicals, gases and odours. It can be used in any room to prevent the build-up of toxic gases or to capture pollutants at the source before they have a change to migrate throughout the rest of the home or office. The AllerAir Pro 5 Plus Vocarb is also the number one choice for artist studios, workshops, hobby and craft rooms, office printing areas or any other place where VOC or chemical fumes are a concern.

“I am so delighted with the AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 Plus Vocarb air purifier I purchased from you. It works amazingly to remove the heavy forest fire smoke we have been having, car exhaust from the busy street, and cooking smells from the hallway that come into my apartment.”
H. Hielema, Winnipeg, MB

“I have used the AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 Plus Vocarb air purifier for about 2 years now. As a then-smoker, the AllerAir saved my place from stinking of smoke, and once I quit, it kept the air wonderfully fresh and clean. On top of that, I am a visual artist who works with acrylics and oil, but in particular, was interested in the AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 Plus Vocarb because I use an airbrush, which turns paint into ultra-fine particles that is great for smooth application, but bad for your lungs. Needless to say, I researched quite a bit before settling upon this particular brand and model. Am I satisfied? Indeed I am. The noise level is low, the design is smooth, and the quality is impressive. As a father working out of his home, I am completely confident in recommending the AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 Vocarb air purifier to anyone wishing to have clean air in their living or working space. On top of that, I will of my own volition recommend AllerAir and Robert, who has been kind, forthcoming, fair and very helpful throughout the process until this very day!”
B. Broendsted, Montreal, QC

“We absolutely love the AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 Plus Vocarb. I am ordering yet another one [our 4th allerair unit!], this time for my son who also has MCS.”
B. Pentland, Fairview, AB

“We purchased an AllerAir Pro 6 Plus Vocarb from you last year. It was an absolutely fantastic purchase in my opinion. We recently had our basement suite renovated and I made the poor choice to put in carpet, the off gassing has been absolutely horrendous despite false claims of it not being an issue. The AllerAir Pro 6 Plus unit has been a super helpful and far more affordable option in keeping the air clean while the indoor VOCs reduce over time because replacing the carpet with hardwood is not an affordable option, and even if it was, it still wouldn't take care of all the other indoor air contaminants. Oh and on top of that, since simply running the AllerAir day and night, my always present indoor allergies have seen a noticeable reduction without having to use allergy pills, thank goodness! I really feel that the AllerAir Pro 6 Plus has been a great purchase! Thank you AllerAir for making such an effective unit.”
C White, Calgary, AB

“I'm very satisfied with my AllerAir AirMedic Pro 6 Plus Vocarb. It definitely improves the air quality in my oil painting studio. It took a few cycles of filtration to get rid of the solvent odors, but I started to really notice a difference after 24 hours of use and onward. The AllerAir unit is less noisy than I expected, and the filter has a heavier carbon load than other brands. Construction is simple and sturdy, and the power cord is longer than the competition.”
L. P. Chapdelaine, Toronto, ON

“My husband is a metal sculpture artist who does welding, engraving, metal painting and polishing. He is very happy with the AllerAir Pro 6 Plus Vocarb air purifier that we purchased from you. He says it really clears the air in his shop. Thanks for talking to me about it and for alleviating our concerns.”
D. Bezanson, Maple Ridge, BC

“I am loving my AllerAir AirMedic Pro 6 Plus Vocarb air purifier! I can really tell the difference when I walk into my studio, I am not hit with the chemical paint and turpentine smell! Thank you for this excellent air purifier!”
Shelly W., OR

“I'm absolutely loving the AllerAir Pro 5 Plus Vocarb air purifier! It’s a lot quieter than I expected, and the carbon definitely makes such a difference from air purifiers with traditional HEPA filters. Thanks again for all your help, I will definitely be back.”
Tyler S., Aurora, ON

** An Important Word on Air Flow Rates and Room Coverage for the AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 Plus Vocarb 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 Plus Vocarb be used in rooms of up to 115 sq. ft. (for premium particle cleaning) or 230 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.
