Best filters

This air purifier has two filters – a 4” deep carbon pre-filter and a 12” deep main filter.

  • True HEPA (99.97%+ at 0.3 microns)
  • Main filter has 3-30X more filter media - lasts longer and quieter

The main filter is a true HEPA filter (MERV 17) and is the same industrial filter that is trusted by hospitals. It has 154 sq feet of filter media and that is more than 3 times our closest competitor and up to 30 times what other air purifiers have. Most HEPA air purifiers have a thin filter and while marketed as HEPA they do not achieve HEPA performance. We have tested just about every filter that is out there and haven't found one that can meet this standard. This is important because they are not as effective in removing the smallest sized particles which are the one's that stay suspended in the air the longest and get breathed deep into your lungs. To remove these particulates an industrial grade filter is required, the more filter media the better.

Having more filter media also means the main filter will last longer (2.5+ years) and it creates less air resistance. By not having to work as hard the motor can spin at a slower, quieter rate.

These are the same filters used in Hospitals, Containment units, and Laboratories. Custom sized filters made by the only company in North America that makes its own HEPA media and made in the USA.

Best Motor/Fan

Erik has the best, latest German engineered EC motor and fan so it provides higher air flow while being quieter and using much less power. The EC motor is a much-improved technology over the traditional AC motor that nearly every other air purifier uses.

AC motors use technology that was developed in the 1800’s and use more energy, can have an annoying hum, and are not as reliable. They are common because they are very inexpensive to produce.

EC Motor Advantages

EC (Electrically Commutated) motors use electronics to convert the AC voltage to DC to run the motor. EC is the latest technology innovation whereas AC motors use technology from nearly 200 years ago. With an AC motor from China, chances are that the copper was wound by hand and the ball bearings are of low quality making it unreliable.

  • EC motors are DC so they are more efficient and use up to 90% less power and in the long term can provide significant cost savings.
  • Runs cooler so greater reliability.
  • More compact.
  • Has a proven track record in the telecomm and computer industry.
  • No motor hum that you get with an AC motor
Why does the motor/fan start and stop more slowly than an AC motor? EC motors have a soft start programmed into the motor to limit the start-up current the motor draws (there are electronics built into the motor). The ramp down after power is removed is only a function of the inertia of the fan and the friction of the bearing system. A high quality bearing system will take longer to slow down and stop since the friction is minimized (alignment is better, lubricant is better, etc.).
Motor Humming 101

The humming noise comes from the fact that it is an AC motor and all the magnetics are changing intensity at the line frequency. When rotating, these forces are aligned so as to rotate the rotor. When the motor is not rotating or rotating at a speed lower than synchronous speed, they tend to make things vibrate back and forth and that makes the humming sound. If you have an AC motor that starts slowly, the humming starts louder and decreases as the rotor and field come into sync.

Why Do AC Motors Vibrate?

This vibration is caused by magnetic flux through the core laminations. Known as magnetostriction, (a property of ferromagnetic materials that causes them to change their shape or dimensions during the process of magnetization,) its effect changes lamination dimensions... twice per cycle of magnetization. This dimensional change, although quite small, produces "sound" characterized as "hum."

Very satisfied customer December 24, 2013
Reviewer: Mary Foley from Parkersburg, WV United States  
I received my Oransi as a gift and can say with an open heart that i have never gotten a better gift. I have a severe allergy to dust. I could not function due to not being able to breath properly. I can now enjoy my evenings at home with a fresh out look. I no longer wake at night with loss of breath. thanks it has given me back a chance to feel alive again.

Sleeping Better October 20, 2013
Reviewer: LB from Seattle  
I bought this air purifier since it was rated highly and I needed some relief in sleeping better without being so stuffed up. I've only had it for a week and I can tell the air in the room is cleaner. It's not exactly a fresh mountain top smell but more like a clean, filtered air scent. I can really tell a difference when I walk into my bedroom as opposed to the other rooms in the house. I'm somewhat of a light sleeper and the middle to high fan speed settings are too loud for me so I run it on the lower fan speed. It looks nice in my room - so far so good. I'm very pleased with it and would recommend it to others who are looking to wake up a little less stuffy in the morning.
