The Austin Air Allergy Machine Jr. (HM205) is recommended for people with allergies and asthma, providing effective removal of common allergens and asthma irritants (e.g., pollen, dust, mould spores, pet dander) in smaller rooms, as well as other harmful airborne pollutants, chemicals and gases. In addition to its standard HEPA filter, the Austin Air Allergy Machine Jr. uses an exclusive HEGA (High Efficiency Gas Absorption) filtration system incorporating technology originally developed by the military for use against chemical warfare. The military carbon cloth in this air purifier's HEGA filter has a larger carbon surface area, making it ideal for controlling tobacco smoke. It is also less susceptible to clogging from use in damp or humid environments, making the Austin Air Allergy Machine Jr. a perfect choice for handling mould issues in small spaces.

The Austin Air Allergy Machine Jr. features a Permafilt pre-filter that is designed to be easily vacuumed from the outside of the unit, making this air purifier simple to maintain and eliminating costly 3-month pre-filter changes. The Austin Air Allergy Machine Jr. uses a combined medical-grade HEPA and military activated carbon cloth filter that only needs to be replaced once every five years. Because this air purifier uses a specially designed woven carbon cloth instead of granular carbon, it does not release any carbon dust as air passes through it. This unit also features a perforated 24 gauge steel, 360 degree air intake housing with over 3 square feet of intake area for exceptional air gathering capability, three fan speed settings, and a louvered air flow output directed to one side from the upper deck. The HEGA filtration system makes the Austin Air Allergy Machine Jr. extremely lightweight at a mere 12 pounds, allowing for easier care and portability.

In addition to humid environments (e.g., small basement rec rooms or dens, enclosed kitchens), the Austin Air Allergy Machine Jr. provides effective coverage for small bedrooms, enclosed offices and other small living spaces where allergens are of concern. With a baked-on powder-coated finish and four colours to choose from, this air purifier blends easily into almost any décor.

“I'm very happy with the Austin Air Allergy Machine Jr. HM205. I was looking for a HEPA air purifier for my bathroom since the duct that leads to the bathroom fan is pulling in dust from outside due to the way my apartment building is constructed. I called Modern Alchemy and had a pleasant chat with Robert, who's the owner. He recommended the Allergy Machine Jr. for its filtering (it can work in moist environments) and also for its form factor (the footprint is less than a square foot). The amount of dust has been reduced dramatically since I started to run the air purifier. I run it on the lowest speed during daytime to reduce the electricity cost and then on the second highest stage in the evening. The noise at the lowest isn't noticed and even at the highest speed, it's not that loud (you will hear it, but it's not annoyingly loud). To sum up, the Austin Air Allergy Machine Jr. is a very impressive little machine!”

** An Important Word on Air Flow Rates and Room Coverage for the Austin Air Allergy Machine Jr. 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. 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 Austin Air Allergy Machine Jr. be used in rooms of up to 120 sq. ft. (for allergy/asthma sufferers) or 235 sq. ft. (for general purpose filtration).

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.
