Brio Innovative 550 Air Purifier by Agentis Air

The Brio Innovative 550 Air Purifier by Agentis Air is a portable indoor air purification system that uses state-of-the-art Advanced Particle Removal Technology (APART) to safely (Catalytic Ozone Filter, CARB certified) capture and remove pollutants without reducing airflow (will not clog) or effectiveness. An innovative alternative to High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) mechanical filtration (which has the limitations of filter clogging, declining performance overtime, and increased energy consumption), the Brio employs electrostatic filtration technology where particles are charged as they pass by internal ionizing wires and then drawn out of the airflow and captured in a high-capacity disposable cartridge of dense foam plates and conductive core, for later removal.

APART technology traps ultrafine indoor air particles (dust, copier toner, smoke, viruses, germs, bacteria, mold) as well as outdoor pollutants that make their way inside, such as smog, pollen, or wildfire smoke, delivering constant, clean airflow and effectiveness overtime. The net result, superior clean air flow and indoor air quality (IAQ), less maintenance, a lower cost-to-own when compared to HEPA mechanical filter-based air purifiers, and delivered with low energy use and quiet operation, and in a contemporary style and compact footprint. 

Unique Features of the Brio Innovative 550 Air Purifier

  • Works on an innovative and patented electrostatic air cleaning technology (APART)
  • Employs a high-capacity, long-life disposable particle collection cartridge that cleans the air while providing low maintenance and replacement costs
  • Filter will not clog so provides continuous peak performance
  • Made with a durable design and high-quality materials
  • Deep cleans 500 square feet in 18 minutes, 300 square feet in 11 minutes
  • Has a check/change indicator which will indicate if the machine a)needs cleaning of other parts, mainly the prefilter (this can be avoided by checking this monthly, or b) it is time to change the APART cartridge, Typical change guidelines are 12 months in typical conditions for the APART Collection Cartridge and 24 months for the Refresh Plus Filter

Who primarily purchases and uses the Brio Innovative 550 Air Purifier

The primary users of the Brioä Innovative Air Purifier are homeowners, small and large business owners (office areas) wanting to provide themselves or employees with a safer and cleaner indoor environment (where much of daily life is spent) while promoting health and wellness oriented strategies to enhance the work environment and productivity, reduce illness induced absenteeism, and provide for a greater overall well-being.

Why Healthy Indoor Air Matters – A Few Points to Consider

  • The EPA lists poor IAQ as a top 5 health concern, and yet there are no national standards for indoor air quality
  • HVAC systems typically use air filters rated at a MERV 8 efficiency level or lower, removing only 20% of particle pollutants. And HVAC systems are only run 25% of the time
  • Studies show a connection between poor IAQ, lower productivity, and worsened cognitive function

Why Choose the APART Electronic Purifier Over a HEPA Mechanical Purifier

Mechanical filtration, which is the predominant air filtration technology used today in portable room air purifiers, whole-home air cleaners, and commercial HVAC systems, will clog overtime as particles are trapped resulting in performance decrease. Specific to:

  • HVAC systems – this results in a subsequent increase in pressure and energy required to force air through the clogging filter (back pressure) which significantly increases to maintain effective air filtration performance
  • Portable Air Purifiers – this results in a decline in airflow and performance between filter changes
  • Electrostatic Precipitators (EPS) – this high-voltage system, used to capture fine particles while maintaining constant air flow and without the need for filter changes, required significant hand-washing maintenance of the metal, particle-collecting plates

The Advanced Particle Removal Technology (APARTä) uses a “disposable” high-capacity cartridge that consists of a conductive core which draws the electrically charged invisible fine and ultrafine particles inward where they are captured in dense open cell foam plates that encase the conductive core. As a result, this filtration system has a longer life (typically longer than a year), saving time and money, and requires substantially less maintenance when compared to HEPA systems.

A Brief History of Agentis Air and the Patented Advanced Particle Removal Technology

Igor Krichtafovitch, Director of Research and Development for Agentis Air, has an impressive work history in the aerospace industry and high-voltage power supply industries where he focused his expertise in innovative ways to solve problems. Seeing the existing problems in particle extraction filtration and little improvement in technology over the past several decades, Krichtafovitch pushed forward through repeated experimental trial-and-error to develop the new electrostatic technology that overcame the limitations and frustrations of traditional air purifier technologies.

Norm Long, CEO of Agentis Air, has a long career working on a Civil Engineering Squad focused on finding more efficient and cost-saving ways in the development of HVAC systems for the military. Previously, as CEO of Havtech, a Mid-Atlantic commercial HVAC equipment solutions provider, Long saw promise in the development of a new technology of a filter capable of MERV 13 performance with little to no pressure drop and minimal maintenance (disposable filter) yielding a more efficient and cost effective air filtration system.

Long story short, these two individuals teamed up to help create the patented Advanced Particle Removal Technology (APART) and bring it to market.

To Help in Your Understanding of Particle Pollution & Air Purifier Performance

Abbreviations/Terms Used to Identify, Index, and Measure Particle Pollution

IAQ: Indoor Air Quality – which can change significantly based on the activities taking place in the indoor space and where a person is located in that space.

AQI: Air Quality Index – a gauge of “outdoor pollution” established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It’s important to understand that AQI affects indoor air quality due to air exchange. An AQI of 50 or lower is considered good.

PM: Particulate Matter – a measurement in microns associated with established values that are harmful to human health. PM 2.5 (smaller than 2.5 microns) and PM 10 (smaller than 10 microns) can enter the upper respiratory system, the lungs, and the blood stream and are associated with higher levels of lung disease, heart disease, cancers, and dementia.


Abbreviations/Terms Used to Quality Air Purifier Performance

CADR: Clean Air Delivery Rate – an industry standard, set by the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers, and used by independent testing labs to compare the cleaning power of new air purifiers (unused particle collection media – filter or cartridge) over a 20-minute period, using strict protocols. In essence, it measures the air purifier’s contribution to clean air in the room.

  • An air purifier with a higher CADR can remove particles faster than an air purifier with a lower CADR.
  • However, a lower CADR may be appropriate based on the room size and desired air changes per hour.
  • If the CADR is too low for the square footage of the space, the air purifier will not be powerful enough to keep up with new air pollution entering the room.
  • Three distinct particle sizes are measured in CADR tests, from smallest to largest: smoke, dust, and pollen. Results for each range from 0 to 450.

CFM: Cubic Feet Per Minute – a measurement of airflow created by an air purifier fan, without a filter. Consequently, because you would not run an air purifier without a filter, it’s important to use CADR, not CFM, when evaluating air purifier performance.

ACH: Air Changes Per Hour – the number of times the air in a room circulates through the purifier in a one-hour period. Therefore, the more air changes per hour, the faster an air purifier will clean the room, assuming it is also filtering efficiently. If your air quality is good, an ACH of 2 may be sufficient. For more polluted air, or for acute health issues, a higher ACH is better.

CCM: Cumulate Clean Mass – a method of testing commonly used in countries with extreme pollution that provides a picture of the clean air delivery rate over a longer period of time. CCM measures the volume, in grams, of particulate matter that a tested air purifier captures before the CADR drops to 50% of the unit’s original CADR. The higher the particle capture (CCM) before this drop, the longer a filter remains effective and the less often it will need to be replaced. CCM is a better measure of effectiveness over time than CADR. Unfortunately, few air purifier brands sold in the US conduct CMM testing.
