PuriCare 500IG Air filtration System compared to PuriCare 500, its unique double ionization technology produces equal amounts of positive and negative ions. Particles in the air are charged by ions, which cause the particles to aggregate and be captured by the filter. And the trace amounts of ozone produced during operation can neutralize harmful pollutants and odors. Even in a 500 sq. ft.carpenter's shop/DIY house,the device also works great.

Highlight: Built-in ion generator/Remote control with a built-in timer/Sheet metal spray shell/Automatic operation function

Adding a negative ion device to a woodworking dust collector is a concept not usually found in woodworking shops. The idea behind using negative ions (also called "anions") is to clean and freshen the air, and they are more commonly associated with air purifiers. The installation of such a device in a dust extraction system for woodworking offers the following advantages:

Improved dust collection - some advocates believe that negative ions increase the likelihood that particles in the air will clump or cluster together. If this is the case, larger clumped particles can be more easily captured by the dust collector.

Neutralize positive ions - Friction from electronic equipment, certain types of lighting, and even woodworking tools can create positive ions. The influx of negative ions can help balance the number of ions in the air, which some believe has an impact on health.

Reduce odours - Negative ions can neutralize odours and reduce levels of harmful chemicals in the air. In wood workshops, especially when certain paints, adhesives, or types of wood are used, there can sometimes be strong odours

Possible reduction of microbes - Some studies show that negative ions can reduce bacteria and viruses in the air. Although wood workshops are generally not a high risk for these pathogens, any additional reduction can be beneficial, especially in a closed environment.

Maintain Lung Health - Inhaling wood dust has been linked to many diseases, such as dermatitis, asthma, various allergies, and cancer. However, simply having a dust collector in your workshop will not provide sufficient protection against this dire consequence. Air filtration systems designed for woodworking workshops can purify the air by capturing particles as small as 0.001 mm. Dust collectors cannot capture particles of this size. Thus, without using an air filter, you risk exposing yourself to life-threatening wood chips that are too minuscule to be caught by other purification systems.

Improve Your Mood - Dual-ion technology charges air particles with extra electrons, dispersing negative ions for deep cleaning. It also minimizes dust, dander, pollen and other allergens and pollutants. It will bring you a pleasant experience.

Clean Your Workshop Even When You Are Away - It makes sense to keep the PuriCare 1100IG running after you've left the workshop, but the last thing you want is to leave the unit running all day without needlessly draining power while you're away. With the auto-off feature, you can choose between one and six-hour timers with the included RF remote to clean the air. Thereafter, the system will shut down independently. Avoid having out-of-control electricity bills.

Easy Installation, Simple Operation, and Low Maintenance Cost - The PuriCare 1100IG Filtration System is pre-assembled, so you solely need to determine where to place the unit. Be sure to check out our instruction manual. It's easy to operate and doesn't take much time to learn. When it comes to maintenance, the system doesn't require much attention other than occasional filter changes and weekly cleaning.

The PuriCare 500IG is designed to improve air quality in medium to large woodworking or metalworking workshops (i.e. saws, sanders, planers). It is specially strengthened in motor and air volume, which can absorb pollutants from machines, pads, tools, walls and windowsills more efficiently.
Additionally, its unique double ionization technology makes particles in the air charged by ions, causing them to aggregate and be captured by the filter. At the same time, active oxygen is generated to remove odors, volatile organic compounds (VOC) from tobacco, food, pets, paints, mold and mildew, and even carcinogenic formaldehyde emitted from furniture, laminate floors, and wooden cabinets. This makes it perform better than a HEPA filter.
The system also works well in similar environments such as renovations, warehouses, salons, print shops, and other enclosed spaces.

Proper Use and Maintenance

Safety Instructions

The power cord of the machine must be plugged into a grounded socket. 
The power supply of the machine must not be higher than the specified power supply. 
Do not use the machine after there is water inside the machine. 
The machine should not be installed outdoors or in places that may be eroded by Rain Water to avoid electricity leakage and fire. 
Do not run the machine without a filter installed 
Refrain from moving the unit during operation
Do not place a shield within the 600mm around the air inlet and outlet of the product.
The machine has to be disconnected from power before it can operate internally. 
If hooks are installed on the ceiling, the load-bearing capacity of the ceiling must be greater than 110 lbs. 
If the dust collector is to be installed on the ceiling, the distance between the bottom of the dust collector and the ground must be greater than 7in. 
Installation requires two people

Maintenance and Cleaning
Under poor air quality, there will be a lot of dust in front of the control panel, which needs to be

cleaned up.

1. Disconnect the power supply before cleaning.

2. Open the cover next to the button on the machine control panel.

3. Use a brush to dust the lid. Then put the lid on and plug it in.

I put this filter into a small woodshop that I have to clear the air of dust from sanding and from spray painting and it seems to do a good job. Have not used it much yet and have not gotten it hung because I need help with that, so perhaps it will be even better when that is done. It is super quiet. Guess we will see how long a filter lasts. I have not tried the remote yet since it is on a table. So far so good though.

Right out of the box you can see the high quality of this unit. It's well-maid, easy to use, and so far, it works great. I have a small engine workshop in my garage. My wife and my children were complaining about the odors coming from the workshop, and they were starting to suggest that I move my operation into the shed. (No A/C, No Heat, Not Going to Happen!!) So, my wife suggested that I get an air cleaner or something, and after doing quite a bit of research I chose the PuriCare 500 Hanging Air Filter. It has only been a short while, and already you feel a difference in the quality of air in my shop, and in my attached home. Well worth the price, easy to use, space-saving, and works great! That is exactly what I was shopping for.
Works Great

Before purchasing, I could visibly a cloud of sawdust in the air and it would take hours for it to settle. I have a 2 car garage and use one of these on the side over my woodshop. It does a fantastic job at keeping the air clean, I cannot see any dust in the air and the amount of settled dust on surfaces is way down. The unit is quiet, I'm able to run it without feeling like I need to wear headphones and I'm able to have a normal conversation without needing to raise my voice. I like the remote and timer function, so I can set the timer for an hour after I'm done for the night and it will automatically turn off.
Awesome System

We use it to clear the air in a powder room. We use an air compressor to clean the filter on a daily basis. Really made a huge difference. I selected this model since it included the ion system. Others for less $$ didn't have this as a feature.
Quiet, small and compact, effective.

Item arrived very fast. It was double boxed and had no damage upon arrival. The unit had all the hardware that needed to install and was easy to hang up to the ceiling. Remote works great and this unit really helps to clean the air in my woodworking shop. My wife is happy there is less dust!


Can I use this unit in the furniture store?
