1. What is Air Manager?

AirManager is an air sterilization and filtration system, scientifically proven to destroy 99.999% of micro-organisms, remove particulate matter, reduce odours and decrease humidity from the atmosphere. AirManager combines two unique and highly specialised technologies together called CCFT (Close Couple Field Technology) and HAF (High Air Flow) filtration. As air flows through the unit the combination of CCFT and HAF safely removes contaminates from the air stream.

AirManager units are designed to be installed into a wide range of air handlers or HVAC systems. They may also be used independently of any air management system.

2. What is CCFT?

CCFT (Close Couple Field Technology) is a process which electrically generates a non-thermal plasma energy field through a series of high voltage coils. The plasma energy is so powerful that it is capable of destroying matter at a cellular level by literally rupturing the cell walls, through an effect known as “molecular ripping”.

3. What is HAF?

HAF (High Air Flow) filters were first developed by 3M specifically for use with AirManager. The HAF filter is electrostatically chaged, and when used in conjunction with CCFT traps residual matter down to 0.1 µm (1/10,000th of a millimetre). Their unique honeycomb design allows air to flow freely through thousands of tiny channels. HAF filters are manufactures out of 100% recyclable polypropylene and can be disposed of safely after use.

4. Is AirManager safe to use in an inhabited environment?

Yes.  AirManager can be used continually in an inhabited environment.  All of our equipment is subjected to rugged third party safety tests, and is indeed proven safe for adoption in Healthcare, Aviation and Marine.

5. Does AirManager destroy all germs?

Yes. Regardless of their nature, all micro-organisms including viruses, bacteria and fungal spores contain cells. AirManager destroys 99.999% of micro-organisms by rupturing their cell walls effectively rendering them inert and completely harmless.

6. Does AirManager help prevent allergies?

Yes. AirManager can and does prevent allergic reactions. AirManager kills germs that may trigger reactions, it is also seen to dramatically reduce the amount of low-level pollution and VOCs (Vollatile Organic Compounds) in the air as well as trapping dust, animal dander and pollens – all of which can be triggers for allergic conditions.

7. Does AirManager remove harmful chemicals?

Yes. AirManager is scientifically proven to remove chemicals, VOCs (volatile organic compounds), tobacco smoke etc in excess of 99.999% in a single pass.

8. Does AirManager reduce surface contamination?

Yes. In recent tests, surface contamination from harmful bacteria was reduced by up to 40%.

9. Does AirManager consume a lot of power?

No, in fact AirManager was designed to be a low power consumption device to allow for continuous and widespread deployment, a typical piece of equipment for protecting a room approximately 100 cubic metres uses just 35 watts, which is less than a standard household lightbulb.

10. How often should I change the HAF filter?

HAF filters are electrostatically charged, and once exposed to the atmosphere the static charge degrades after three months. Therefore we recommend changing your HAF filter every three months, or depending on the level of contamination, as directed by your equipment provider.

11. How often does AirManager require servicing?

Annually. Each unit should be cleaned and serviced every 12 months by a certified AirManager service centre.

12. Does AirManager reduce odours?

Yes. Odours are created by 1 of 2 processes; either by biological or chemical release, in both cases AirManager is seen to dramatically improve the quality of air passing through the equipment by either killing the bacteria that creates the smell or by dissembling the chemical generating the odour.

13. What happens to particles that escape through the AirManager?

Nothing ‘escapes’ through the AirManager, the equipment is designed sterilise using CCFT as well as trap and retain particles within the HAF filter. And unlike other forms of air filtration, any residual matter within the filter is already destroyed so it cannot continue to breed and pose a health risk.

14. Can AirManager be integrated into my HVAC system?

Indeed it can. AirManager units can be designed to integrate into any HVAC or air handling system. Either as new installations or as retrofit equipment, we feature a wide variety of standard units as well as offering a custom design service to meet the needs of any air management system.

15. Can AirManager reduce my energy costs?

Yes it can. When installed in-line as part of a HVAC or air handling system, AirManager can actively improve energy efficiency by dramatically reducing back pressure to just 25 Pascals as well as decreasing humidity. Not only does this reduce energy consumption but it also means recued maintenance costs with less wear and tear on equipment.

16. Is AirManager scientifically proven and certified?

Quest International (UK) Ltd, from the very beginning, have insisted that all of their testing and trialling be overseen by independent Scientific Professionals, and that all validation testing has been carried out by independent quality accredited laboratories or government facilities.

Our equipment carries a CE mark, Quest as an organisation are ISO 9000 accredited and the technology is approved in many ways for safe integration on board civil and commercial airliners. Today, AirManager is the ONLY air sterilization and filtration system that is CERTIFIED to provide clean air to well in excess of operating theatre standards (minimum ISO 6 guaranteed).

17. Who invented AirManager?

David Hallam (CEO of Quest International (UK) Ltd) originally invented AirManager to remove unpleasant odors from a nursing home where an ailing uncle was a resident. When the nursing staff noticed a dramatic decrease in the spread of infections, this led Hallam to further investigate CCFT. Hallam went on to develop the AirManager system which uses a combination of CCFT and HAF (High Airflow Filtration), which filters any dust, pollen, airborne contaminants and resultant debris from the CCFT process down to 0.1 micron
