DePuro Pro Evo
The DEPURO PRO plug and play air purifier is specifically developed with HEPA filters to reduce the number of particles in the air such as bacteria, micro-organisms and viruses. Designed for spaces such as care homes, offices, hotels, universities and the health sector, the unit has certified technology to fight Covid-19.
The DEPURO PRO plug and play air purifier specifically developed with double filtration to reduce the number of particles in the air such as bacteria, micro-organisms and viruses. Designed for spaces such as care homes, offices, hotels, universities and the health sector, this is of huge interest as we fight the Covid-19 pandemic.
The DEPURO PRO is available in two sizes and comes with HEPA 14 absolute filters, capable of retaining up to 99.995% of microparticles (equivalent diameter 0.3µm) which require periodic replacement, highlighted by the filter status indicator on the control panel. The DEPURO PRO 150 is suitable for rooms up to 50 metres square and the DEPURO PRO 300 is suitable for rooms up to 100 metres square. This new product is highly energy efficient, is easy to handle and has sound absorbing panels making it almost silent to operate. The DEPURO PRO EVO includes photocatalysis module including UV-C lamp tested against COVID-19 (*Effectiveness of module against COVID-19 tested by The Department of Biomedical and Clinical Sciences, University of Milan).

General Manager Kevin Hippey said:
“Scientists have reiterated the importance of good ventilation throughout this pandemic and that, coupled with air filtration and purification, can really help reduce infected particles, making it of particular interest in the health and care sector.”
As an example, the DEPURO PRO air purifier has been successfully installed in two NHS hospitals in Essex as part of their fight against the spread of Covid-19. The twelve units have been installed in three dental rooms and nine treatment rooms in a project to improve the air quality in the hospitals and increase patient turn-around in a clean and safe environment.
Vortice also installed the new DEPURO PRO air purifier in its own Burton-upon-Trent offices and has reported excellent results. The floor area of the office is 139.5 square metres with a ceiling height of 2.32m and a volume of 323.04 cubic metres, so the DEPURO PRO 300 was the appropriate unit to use. With a single unit running at 53% the office volume is filtered 1.2 times per hour.
General Manager Kevin Hippey said:
“As part of our planning to bring our staff back into the office after working from home for several months, it was important to practice what we preach. We, more than many, understand how vital clean indoor air quality is to the health of those who work in our office environment, so as well as the usual Covid secure practices, one of the first things we did was install the DEPURO PRO air purifier.”
Technical Manager Andrew Dickinson continued:
“We’ve seen a very large reduction in airborne contaminants including bacteria and viruses within the first 30 mins of the operation of the DEPURO PRO and as the unit is working 24 hours per day, the levels are kept at low or very low levels constantly unless they are introduced by the opening of windows.”
Vortice currently runs the unit at 53% during the day and it is then programmed to run at a higher rate when the office is empty to purge the atmosphere. The DEPURO PRO unit uses two stage filtering, the pre (first) filter is an ISO coarse 65% (F7) which removes the larger partials from the air stream, the primary filter is a HEPA H14. The HEPA filter (High Efficiency Particulate Air Filter) can capture at least 99.97% of particles with a diameter greater than or equal to 0.3mm. They can filter out impurities and particles in the air, such as viruses, respirable dust, mites eggs and excretions, mould, dust, allergens, pollen, bacteria, dust mites or cigarette smoke, asbestos, various toxic dusts and aerosols from the air, dander and allergens from the fur of dogs or cats.
