Schüco VentoLife Air Purification Device
A decentralised air purification device using fans for use in environments with polluted air. It can be integrated unobtrusively in windows or façades and frees the air fed in from outside effectively from particulates and noxious gases as well as unpleasant smells. Even in heavy smog, the smallest particulates are removed from the air with a level of efficiency of ≥ 99.5 %. A layer made from an activated carbon-potassium permanganate compound additionally eliminates troublesome smells, bacteria and toxic substances that are hazardous to health. In recirculating air mode, the air in the room is cleaned so effectively that generally no further air purification devices are necessary. Outside air is dosed in as required by a sensor-controlled flap in order to achieve optimum air quality in the building. Integrated sensors for the parameters “humidity”, “level of particulate matter pollution” and “level of volatile organic compound pollution” (VOC) in addition to a fan with an EC motor guarantee efficient operation with the lowest possible power requirements. In automatic mode, the integrated outside/recirculating air flap ensures the necessary fresh air supply. During the night, the automatic silent mode can be activated in order to limit the speed of the ventilator and, with it, the noise level. Information on the operating status and ambient air conditions is shown to the user by means of a self-explanatory display and a shadow gap illuminated in traffic light colours. The device can be operated via infrared remote control. Individual adaptation to the building is possible due to variable length and flexible installation position (horizontal/vertical). Fabrication is carried out in accordance with familiar principles through retention in the same way as glazing. The devices are pre-set and therefore immediately ready for use. A required filter change is indicated on the display.
Class 12 suspended matter filter with activated carbon and potassium permanganate, with a pull-out tab for replacement without tools.
Monitoring and control:
Via sensors for particulate matter, VOC, temperature and humidity.
A motorised butterfly valve shuts off the external air supply when the device is switched off.
Volume flows: Level 5: 50 m3/h
Level 4: 40 m3/h
Level 3: 30 m3/h
