Ultimate Cigar Smoke and Odor Control

If you have been struggling to keep the smell  and smoke of cigars under control, your struggles are over. The MAX-Guard-HEPA-120 is by far the best air purifying system made in the USA. The True HEPA filter removes all the smoke in a single pass. The 4 chamber activated filter absorbs cigar odor as the air passes through it. This is a premium cigar air purifier for the serious cigar lover.

4 Chamber Acivated Carbon Filter is the Star of the Show

So often the greatest concern with cigar smoke is the odor. Activated carbon will absorb the odors like no other substance. The  Ultra 3.0 filter contains over 2000 grams of activated carbon. There is no better odor absorbing filtering media for cigar odor. 

Activated Carbon odor absorption illustration

Carbon is one of the most basic elements on our planet. It has a very low atomic weight, only 12.01. Elements of a low atomic weight attract elements of a higher weight. This is the reason almost ever gas is attracted to activated carbon.  Activated Carbon crystals are covered in tiny cracks and crevices. These gas molecules (which cause odor) get caught in the activated carbon. The image to the left illustrates how gas molecules get caught in carbon.  Odor absorption takes time to happen. The gasses in the air stream of your air purifier are moving fast through the filter. To be effective these gasses have to remain in contact with the odor absorbing media. This amount of time is known as “residency time“. The physical width of the filter is 3.0 inches. This much wider filter width than normal allows the odorous gasses to stay in contact with the carbon and be removed from the air.

Not only does the 4 chamber design create a longer path for odor filled gasses, it also forces the air to tumble through the irregular shaped crystals. This torturous course helps rip the terpenes out of the airstream leaving you odor free air. At a high level of odor it will take more than one circulation to remove all the odors.

99.97% Smoke and Particle Removal

The MAX-Guard-HEPA-120 utilizes a True HEPA filter.  Our HEPA filters are made in the USA by Glasfloss a respected filter manufacturer. It has filter trapping efficiency to smoke and particles as small 0.1 microns. The filter size is 3 to 5 times larger than other home HEPA filters. Most home HEPA filters are flimsy and look to be suited for a vacuum cleaner. Note that the LakeAir HEPA filter is incased in a rigid galvanized steel frame. The filter is really put together well.

  For 1 or 2 regular smokers, the HEPA filter should last around 1 year. If you notice considerable less air flow, it is probably time to change it out.  The combination of ultra 3.00 Carbon Filter and True HEPA makes this product the ultimate cigar smoke and odor control air purifying system.
