CFM Air Purifiers


Continental Fan makes 2 air purification units: one for the whole house and one portable model.  Both use relatively strong fans to force air through their filtration systems.  The portable units uses a prefilter to capture larger particles and help preserve the life of its more expensive HEPA filter.  Independent test results for these units are not available at this time.

CFM (Continental Fan, Aeroflo) Company Info

Continental Fan and its sister company Aeroflo are manufacturers and distributors of a variety of air ventilation equipment including air purifiers. Although Contintental Fan is located in the United States and Aeroflo is in Canada, both companies deal with the same product line known as CFM.

Continental Fan was started in 1986 with the goal of providing customers with good products, service and knowledge. The company offers the largest quick ship program available, and if a product is not in stock, can get it delivered quickly. Continental Fan offers custom orders and can help design models to demonstrate moving air solutions. Their air purifiers can range in price from $550 to $1,400.

CFM Air Purifier Technology

The CX air purifiers are designed to deal with every aspect of air filtration, including particle removal, chemical neutralization, living organism abatement and odor elimination. The pre-filters are designed to remove particles up to 5 microns in size, while activated carbon filters cut down on toxic chemicals in the air. The UVC light eliminates viruses and bacteria, and the negative ions and activated oxygen helps freshen up the air.

The UVC light uses a form of naturally occurring ultraviolet light and can kill up to 99.9% of all airborne germs. It does this by irradiating the DNA of the viruses and bacteria and causing them to be unable to reproduce, thus stopping them in their tracks.

The reactive catalyst is unique to CFM products as many other air purifiers do not have this. The air purifier neutralizes the chemicals by using Photo-Catalytic Oxidation in combination with a UVC light. This combination creates a catalyst, and during that process the toxic chemicals are converted into benign substances like water and carbon dioxide. The air purifiers are easy to maintain and have built-in lights that will let a user known when filter or lamps need to be replaced.

HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filters, commonly found in air purifiers, can remove tiny particles floating in the air. A HEPA filter is a mat consisting of extremely thin fiberglass fibers. These fibers get tangled and create a netlike structure with small openings that allow air through but trap microscopic particles. HEPA filters are very thorough – they can filter out 99.97% of particles that are .3 microns in size. Continental Fan uses hospital grade HEPA filters for the most thorough filtration.

CX1000 Portable Air Purifier

The CX1000 air purifier is a portable air purifier that can serve as a warning system for potentially dangerous situations. If the machine detects the presence of toxic chemicals or fumes, warning lights will go off and alert the owner before the situation ever reaches a dangerous level.
