Frequently Asked Questions about the NQ Clarifier HEPA Air Purifier with Ultraviolet Lamps to Kill Germs such as Bacteria and Viruses.

The NQ Clarifier (formerly the CARE 2000) delivers clean air for your family's health
The NQ Clarifier Ultraviolet Air Purifier is the solution to toxic indoor air pollution.

The key to achieving the cleanest indoor air is a multistage air purifier. The new NQ Clarifier utilizes several innovate technologies and carefully selected materials to achieve five levels of filtration. In fact, it is the same technology that's used effectively in both hospitals and health care facilities. No other residential system has the same performance. You'll rest assured knowing you're combating all classes of contaminants, including disease-causing microorganisms.

HEPA air purifier with UV WHY IS THE NQ CLARIFIER MORE EXPENSIVE THAN COMPETITIVE PRODUCTS?

Comparative studies reveal that the NQ Clarifier dramatically outperforms other filtration products. The NQ Clarifier achieves maximum filtration through the use of several innovative technologies and CAREFULLY selected materials. The key benefit of the NQ Clarifier are:

  • First HEPA air filtration system for home or office use that features germicidal UV light that eliminates bacterial and viral microorganisms. Note that non-UV systems cannot trap and eliminate viruses, and they may allow trapped bacteria to seep back into the air.

  • Unique "top-flow" air discharge produces better air flow and air quality and more air changes per hour than other HEPA purifiers.

  • Air flow monitor tells the user when the pre-filter needs to be cleaned or changed or when the HEPA filter needs to be changed. Over time, HEPA filters become clogged with particulates, greatly reducing their efficiency and air change rates. The NQ Clarifier assures maximum contaminant reduction over the life span of the filter.

HEPA air purifier with UV HOW DOES THE NQ CLARIFIER COMPARE TO OTHER AIR PURIFIERS ON AIR CHANGE RATES?

In a 1,500 sq. ft. room the NQ Clarifier produced 6.6 air changes/hour. This figure exceeds the air changes per hour produced by Austin Air Healthmate (3.8), Equinox (2.6), Honeywell 13520 (2.2) and Foust S-400 (1.5).

HEPA air purifier with UV HOW CAN THE NQ CLARIFIER PRODUCE MORE AIR EXCHANGES PER HOUR THAN COMPETITIVE PRODUCTS IF THE FAN OPERATES AT A LOWER SPEED?

At 350 cfm with the top flow air discharge system, room air is exchanged 100%. This enables the NQ Clarifier to produce higher actual air change rates than most competitive products. It should be noted that unlike some competitive products, CWR has calculated its air change rates according to standardized ASHRAE (the American Society of Heating, Radiators, and Air Conditioning Engineers) testing procedures.

HEPA air purifier with UV HOW DO THE FIVE STAGES OF FILTRATION WORK?

At the first level, a 10-micron particulate pre-filter captures airborne particles like dust and pet dander. At the next level, a patented, specially blended carbon media (3 materials) absorbs and oxidizes odors, gases and chemicals such as formaldehyde, sulfur dioxide, and damaging ozone. Together these barriers complement the primary microfiltration media (HEPA) which traps particles including pollen, molds, dust and bacteria down to 0.3 microns in size. Any viruses that pass through the HEPA are then killed by the germicidal ultraviolet lamps. Finally, a carbon-impregnated post-filter reinforces the entire purification process.

HEPA air purifier with UV WHAT IS THE "PATENTED OXIDIZING MEDIA" IN THE COMMERCIAL CARE, THAT IS BLENDED WITH THE FORMULATED CARBON AND SERVES AS THE SECOND STAGE OF FILTRATION?

A special patented blend of carbon, plus potassium permanganate and alumina silicate, produce a maximum surface area for better absorption, and improved oxidation of chemicals and gases.

HEPA air purifier with UV IS THE UV LIGHT IN THE NQ CLARIFIER SAFE?

Yes. The product contains a shield plate over the UV lamps to prevent exposure to UV light during use. Of course, there are special precautions you need to take when changing the UV lamps. For instance, you should always unplug the unit before removing the shield plate, so you do not look directly at the UV lamps when they are lit. These precautions are detailed in the operating manual.

HEPA air purifier with UV HOW DOES THE NQ CLARIFIER FILTER AIR?

The NQ Clarifier's unique "top-flow" air discharge directs a powerful current of purified air toward the top of the room where air can be freely mixed and distributed without disruption. The purified air then drops down around the total room area pushing the dust, pollen, odors, etc., back toward the unit. These contaminants are then pulled into the unit on all four sides for even filtration. This innovative system doubles the room air changes of its nearest competitor.

HEPA air purifier with UV IS THE NQ CLARIFIER A TRUE HEPA SYSTEM AT 99.97% TO 03 MICRONS?

Yes, it is a True Hepa system with the same grade HEPA as other filters, such as the Austin Air. Like other systems, the HEPA media used in the NQ Clarifier achieves 99.97% particle reduction to 0.3 microns in size. In addition, the NQ Clarifier uses a special non-outgasing grade of HEPA designed for chemically and environmentally sensitive individuals.

HEPA air purifier with UV WHAT IS A HEPA FILTER?

The HEPA filter was developed by the US Atomic Energy Commission to filter out sub-micron radioactive particles. All True Hepa is laser-tested and must remove a minimum of 99.97% of all particles greater than 0.3 microns in size. A human hair is about 300 times too large to penetrate a HEPA filter.

HEPA air purifier with UV DOES THE PRODUCT STERILIZE THE AIR?

No. No air purifier can "sterilize" the air. However, the NQ Clarifier creates a virtually germ-free environment. The NQ Clarifier can accomplish this because it is the first air filtration system for home and office use that features germicidal UV light. Inside the NQ Clarifier, the HEPA is continually bathed in UV light. Bacterial and viral microorganisms such as hepatitis, influenza, TB and Legionnaire's Disease are trapped and destroyed before they can infiltrate your air space.

HEPA air purifier with UV WHERE SHOULD I PLACE THE UNIT FOR MAXIMUM EFFECTIVENESS?

The NQ Clarifier is very versatile, and it is designed for home or office use in any room (except near sinks, showers, pools or any other water source). For optimal results, the unit should be placed 6 inches away from a wall, with the machine angled towards the area in the room that will be occupied. Make sure you do not angle the machine's air flow towards the wall.

HEPA air purifier with UV HOW MUCH WILL IT COST TO RUN THE NQ CLARIFIER?

Comparative tests show that the cost to run the NQ Clarifier (based on a $0.10/kilowatt rate) 24 hours a day, seven days a week, is about $24 per year, versus the Austin Air at $47 and the Honeywell at $252.

HEPA air purifier with UV WHAT KIND OF POWER DOES THE PRODUCT REQUIRE?

The NQ Clarifier is an electrical appliance and operates with i isv AC current so it can easily be plugged into standard wall outlets. It is a very efficient unit, only using 115 watts of power at 1.2 amps.

HEPA air purifier with UV WHAT TESTING HAS BEEN PERFORMED ON THE PRODUCT?

The manufacturers have conducted several independent tests. Air flow and particulate reduction testing was performed according to ASHRAE Standards.

The NQ Clarifier has been independently tested and certified by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and also meets European Electrical and Structural Standards (CE).

HEPA air purifier with UV IS THE UNIT APPROVED FOR REIMBURSEMENT?

The NQ Clarifier has been approved by HCFA (Health Care Financing Administration) as a Durable Medical Device (A9270). If a doctor writes a medical necessity letter, it will be considered for reimbursement by the insurance company. List our supplier number 1243200001.

HEPA air purifier with UV WHAT IS THE HOUSING MADE OF?

The NQ Clarifier housing construction is composed of 22-gauge galvanized steel with a bonded coating to allow for easy cleaning and enhanced durability.

HEPA air purifier with UV HOW LONG CAN I LEAVE IT ON FOR WHEN I'M GONE?

The unit can safely run 24 hours a day continuously; however, when on vacation, it is recommended that the unit be shut off.

HEPA air purifier with UV CAN YOU GIVE ME MORE INFORMATION ON THE MANUFACTURER, NQ ENVIRONMENTAL, INC.?
