pbOffice adds new air washer to IDEAL portfolio

AW60In the continued quest to bring healthy, pure air to your indoor spaces, pbOffice – a division of PBSA (formerly Pitney Bowes SA) – has just introduced a new IDEAL air purifying combination unit, the AW60.

Suitable for rooms of up to 60m², the IDEAL AW60 builds on its popular predecessor, the AW40, and features an additional HEPA combination filter and automatic function. The latest addition to the air washer family combines air purification with optimal humidification, for ideally purified and humidified air.

The device has a HEPA combination filter with integrated carbon anti-odour filter. Water, as a natural filter, works together with the HEPA filter to efficiently bind dust, allergens and particle-bound odours in the air. At the same time, the AW60 provides optimal air humidity through specifically structured humidifying disks and by applying cold evaporation.

To create a healthy indoor climate, air humidity is kept within the optimal range of 40% to 60% by a fully automated function on the AW60.

Additionally, the automatically selectable PlasmaWave system actively removes bacteria, viruses and mould spores from the indoor air, while antibacterial CleanCel technology on the water tank and humidifying disks inhibits the growth of bacteria, fungi and acarids.

The device features high-quality touch control and modes for automatic, manual and sleep. In automatic mode the AW60 monitors the air humidity by means of the hygrostat, and automatically adjusts the power – although this can also be controlled manually.

Night mode allows for ultra-silent operation – an ideal mode for bedrooms. There is also a timer function for optimal pre-selection of the desired runtime, including two, four or eight hours.

Easy to clean and maintain, the AW60 is also very energy-efficient.

PBSA debuts new IDEAL devices

Purify and humidify the air you breathe with IDEAL’s new combo units

You breathe approximately 10 000 litres of air – not to mention all the undesirable elements in it – through your lungs on a daily basis, which is why clean breathing air is so important when it comes to your health.

With nearly 100% of unwanted substances – including exhaust fumes, viruses and bacteria, tobacco smoke, dust, mould, building chemistry, fine dust, aerosols, animal hair and pollen – posing a risk to  your health and wellbeing, you want to make sure these elements are removed from the air you breathe.

This is where IDEAL comes in. The Germany-based maker of machines that turn the indoor air you breathe into something only nature can produce – fresh, clean, natural air – has launched two new air purifier and humidifier products, the air washer IDEAL AW40 and  IDEAL ACC55 combination device.

While the AW40 washes indoor air, the two-in-one ACC55 device both washes and filters it.

Ideal AW40Indoor air washer

The AW40 – an “air washer” for clean and humidified indoor air – is suitable for spaces of up to 40 m² and has automatic function.

Recommended for allergy sufferers, the AW40 cleans and humidifies air without the use of any consumables. It also features the anti-bacterial Ionic Silver Stick®, is low on energy consumption and operates silently.

The air washer produces clean air and combines this with ideal humidification. Water – a natural filter – binds contaminates such as dust, allergens and particle-bound odour, all without any additional consumables or replacement filters.

Thanks to the integrated humidity switch, the air humidity can be controlled at the push of a button to achieve an ideal room climate. A digital humidity display shows the relative humidity in the room at the push of a button even if the device is turned off.

The AW40’s cleaning mode automatically indicates when to clean the device, to refill the water tank or to replace the Ionic Silver Stick®. All components can be removed from the case with a single movement.

An intelligent light sensor automatically switches the air washer to night operation, which includes automatic dimming and display at night time. This makes the device ideal for use in bedrooms or children‘s rooms. The air washer also features an automatic switch-off function, which kicks in when the water tank is empty.

Two-in-one cleaner

The IDEAL ACC55 – another combo unit that cleans and humidifies indoor air – guarantees a healthy room climate throughout the year.Ideal ACC55

The ACC55 not only ensures clean air by filtering the smallest particles from the air, but also provides ideal air humidity via an evaporator system at the same time.

Suitable for rooms up to 55 m² and also highly recommended for allergy sufferers, the device features a permanent pre-filter that stops hair, house dust and other major particles of dirt before they get to your airwaves. A downstream HEPA fine particle air filter filters almost all particles, pollen, bacteria and viruses, while an activated carbon filter absorbs bad odours.

The evaporation pad, which sees to air humidification, features an evaporator cassette. This is covered with an anti-microbial layer for self-regulating hygienic cold vaporisation that prevents microbial growth.

Featuring a blue LED operation display, the ACC55 is energy efficient and has an extremely smooth-running motor for super-silent operation.
