No on should have to breathe in toxic chemicals when they are indoors or outdoors. Together, HEPA and HEGA form a complete air cleaning solution, and is increasingly becoming the choice of allergy and asthma sufferers.
High Efficiency Gas Absorption (HEGA) filtration is a special carbon fiber that was developed by the British Military and is used to protect soldiers and civilians from chemical warfare. This form of activated carbon is a woven material that has a massive surface area. HEGA provides ten times the surface area of traditional activated carbon. HEGA is lightweight and is highly efficient. Like a sponge, HEGA bonds and absorbs toxic chemicals, gasses, odors and tobacco smoke and removes them from the air. Unlike traditional activated carbon pellets, HEGA releases no carbon dust. The absence of carbon dust extends the life of the HEPA filter.
HEGA is unique to Austin Air and is found in The Allergy Machine, Baby’s Breath and The Bedroom Machines.
