KAPPA PURON® SC
TO REMOVE VIRUSES
FROM THE AIR
The Kappa Puron® SC is a room air filter designed to improve air quality and reduce the risk of infection. The filter system continuously separates viruses, aerosols, fine dust, pollen and germs from the air in a highly effective manner. This ensures healthy indoor air, free from viruses and pollutants.
With the Kappa Puron® SC, companies minimise their risk of infection and ensure consistently safe workplaces, thus promoting team spirit and increasing productivity in the wake of the pandemic.
The Kappa Puron® SC is ideal for rooms that are not or are insufficiently supplied with fresh air via a ventilation system.

»Many different teams from a wide range of sectors meet at our tables at lunchtime. If someone were to pass on an infection here, it would trigger a chain reaction. In the worst case, entire departments of companies could be shut down. With the Puron® SC, we stop this potential chain reaction in its tracks. The guests can fully concentrate on their conversations and the taste experience in front of them. And with it a piece of normality.«

»Optimal air hygiene is crucial to safe working. For us, this also includes continuous cleaning of the room air in our skin & laser centre. To protect both our patients and our staff, we immediately invested in room air filters. Thanks to our decisive action, we were able to protect our entire team and work continuously throughout all phases of the pandemic.«

»Nowadays, it is no longer sufficient to simply offer free apples in the office. Highly qualified workers require holistically optimised workplaces. The pandemic has also made us pay greater attention to good air quality. With the Puron® SC, VACE has found a way to meet the demands of its employees and to be able to continuously offer them high-quality indoor air. It is an investment that not only has a positive effect on the employer-employee relationship, but also on our team spirit. And thus also on our productivity.«

Many of our colleagues have been increasingly working from home over recent months. But our offices are now returning to life once again. Yet at the same time, we are seeing a lot of absences due to illness. Can the Kappa Puron® SC room air filter help us to get this under control?
When there are fewer people in a room, the transmission of viruses is made more difficult. However, more (infected) people also transmit more viruses. In order to counter the activity in your office, you can either ventilate vigorously 6 times per hour, or set up a Puron® SC in highly frequented rooms (meeting rooms, common areas).
I work in a school. Particularly in winter, it's not possible to properly ventilate the classroom, as the children would get too cold. What would you recommend?
This is a prime example of how the Kappa Puron® SC room air filter is ideally used. It ensures that the children benefit from excellent air quality, even in winter. In addition, at 45 dB(A) the device is so quiet that it will not disrupt lessons.
In gastronomy, we are constantly facing problems with short-term sick leave. We can barely keep our bar running because there is one infection after the other. How can I ensure more safety and predictability?
The Kappa Puron® SC room air filter protects your employees. Thanks to the Puron's excellent virus filter performance, the probability of getting an infection is significantly reduced. This, in turn, prevents a chain reaction of absences.
Where is the Kappa Puron® SC room air filter already in use?
The Kappa Puron® is used, for example, in offices and administration buildings, in banks, event and training facilities (schools, universities, seminar rooms, etc.), in the health sector (GP surgeries and health facilities) as well as in the HoReCa industry.
Am I 100% protected against COVID-19 when using the Kappa Puron® SC room air filter?
No. However, the Kappa Puron® room air filter makes a significant contribution to minimising the risk of infection.
Does the Kappa Puron® SC room air filter provide draught-free fresh air or will I get a backache if I sit next to it for too long?
The Kappa Puron® permanently cleans the room air and distributes the cleaned air in a draught-free manner 360° throughout the room. A ventilation system must be introduced to supply rooms with fresh air.
Why do I need the Kappa Puron® SC room air filter if I already have a ventilation system?
Ventilation systems (even those with 100% fresh air) usually have a built-in heat exchanger. And these heat exchangers are not aerosol-tight. This requirement is a result of the coronavirus pandemic. In supposedly 100% fresh air mode, there is still 4-12% circulating air due to leakage air. Many times, this is all it takes to get infected.
If I use an air treatment system in combination with the Kappa Puron® SC room air filter, is it of any use to me?
Yes. But the external air flow should be maximised, so that the room is supplied with as much fresh air as possible. However, this means that ice-cold air is drawn in during winter, which must be heated before it is brought into the room. But the majority of systems are not designed for such a heating capacity, which is why the control system automatically switches on the circulating air. This process is usually carried out automatically by modern systems, which regulate the amount of circulating air required depending on the outside air temperature and the heat output. So the viruses continue to spread around the room.
In such systems and for areas in which ventilation systems are not or insufficiently effective, the Kappa Puron® is the only way to consistently ensure good air quality.
How many filter elements are installed in the Kappa Puron® SC room air filter?
A single multi-layer filter element. The innovative and new type of filter element separates even foreign substances in the micron range with a high degree of effectiveness. This is a three-layer filter medium with a highly effective microfibre layer. This is embedded as a middle layer between two protective fleeces that also act as filters. Contact with the filter layer is thus prevented.
Optionally, the Kappa Puron® SC can be equipped or retrofitted with an activated carbon filter element.
How maintenance-intensive is the Kappa Puron® SC room air filter? How often do the filter elements need to be cleaned?
We recommend having the device serviced once a year and replacing the main filter element at least every two years.
Can I regulate the filter performance of the Kappa Puron® SC room air filter myself?
The Kappa Puron® SC has two performance settings. The first stage called "Efficiency" is intended for areas with a footfall of around 20 people per hour. The second, "Power", is best suited to areas with a footfall of around 30 people per hour.
I have a large room with an area of around 70 m2. Would a Kappa Puron® SC room air filter clean the entire room?
Yes. We only recommend the addition of a second device for rooms larger than 70 m2.
How much does the Kappa Puron® SC room air filter weigh?
Without the table top, the Kappa Puron® SC room air filter weighs 35 kilograms. With the table top added, the room air filter weighs just 40 kilograms.
Does the Kappa Puron® SC room air filter also filter out odours?
Activated carbon filter elements can be added optionally.
Can the Kappa Puron® SC room air filter also be rented? And how could such a rental agreement be terminated?
Yes, the Kappa Puron® room air filter is also available for rental. The rental contract can be terminated at the end of a month any time after the minimum rental period has been concluded.
What standards are HEPA 14 filters tested to?
EPA-H14 suitability results as per EN 1822 (corresponds to class ISO 45 H according to ISO 29463).
