Trying to compare air purifiers is a real challenge. Many manufacturers offer almost no specifications. They might mention maximum area, but never specify how many times the air is cleaned. They say ” quiet as a gentle rain, but never tell you how many db(A). We think an informed shopper is a powerful consumer. No two air purifiers have all the same options. However the most important items to consider are; how well it cleans, how big of a room does it clean, how loud is it and how much noise does it produce and what it costs.

We took an oversize blower from one the best manufacturers in the world. We put it in the Maxum and we created an air cleaning giant.It starts at a whisper 38 db(A) noise level and a huge 150 CFM air flow. You can crank it up to 500 CFM and 60 db(A). The Maxum HEPA comes standard with the M-Super Carbon filter. The two filters combine to provide superior air purification and odor control.
1000 sq ft
The Maxum HEPA is designed for large rooms. It can purify the air 4 times an hour in a room of 1000 sq ft. That’s enough air filtration for a 1 floor ranch home. That’s the largest capacity for a table top air purifier.
Commercial Product Made for Your Home
The Maxum HEPA is a commercial air purifier. It has a larger capacity than the mainstream commercial units typically sold by the top brands. It has a 18 gauge steel body. The blower is rated for continual use. This unit is a bench top model and will works well in welding and soldering stations. The variable speed controller allows the user to adjust the unit to the exact amount of air flow to keep the work area free from smoke and dust.
Smoke And Odor Removal
The Maxum HEPA is great for private smoking rooms. It has the capacity to clean the air several times an hour. For instance in a smoking room 20′ X 20′ X 8′(h) the air will pass through the HEPA filter and Carbon filter almost 10 times an hour. Each cycle will remove more than 99% of smoke and it’s odor. Remember that activated carbon can only absorb so much odor. When the carbon is saturated, it must be replaced.
