Brio the Innovative Air Purifier - take a closer look

At last. The portable air purifier you've been waiting for.

Brio’s innovative technology is a remarkable, new alternative to HEPA-style air purification.

Independent lab testing shows Brio removes particles as small as 10.7 nanometers (that's 0.0107 microns) using patented Advanced Particle Removal Technology (APART™) developed by air quality experts at the University of Washington.

And it does so without filter clogging. Brio delivers a constant, clean airflow for better indoor air quality all day, every day. HEPA air purifiers can't make the same promise.

Find out more about Brio

I'm going back to the office soon! Can I bring Brio?

You can and we think you should. Here's why: Brio is perfect for small- to medium-sized office spaces. Brio removes fine and ultrafine particles including viruses and germs. Brio's effectiveness stays at peak level (and tops HEPA). Plus, Brio offers easy operation, contemporary styling, long-lasting APART Collection Cartridges (lasting 12 months or more in typical office conditions) and minimal maintenance, Brio is the ideal back-to-the office companion.

Does Brio remove viruses including COVID-19?

The short answer is yes. For an air cleaner to reduce viruses in the air, it must be able to remove small airborne particles (in the size range of 0.1-0.5 microns).

In independent lab tests, Brio’s APART technology effectively removes particles including COVID-19 surrogate, in this size range, in 15 minutes.

It is important to note, however, that reducing virus particles is just one part of protection plan, as explained by the EPA:
“When used properly, air purifiers can help reduce airborne contaminants including viruses in a home or confined space. However, by itself, a portable air cleaner is not enough to protect people from COVID-19. When used along with other best practices recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, operating an air cleaner can be part of a plan to protect yourself and your family.”

Can Brio help with wildfire smoke?

Yes, Brio can help. Fine wildfire smoke particles may be as small as 0.4-0.7 microns. Independent testing shows that Brio’s APART particle removal effectively traps particles in this size range including wildfire smoke. And because Brio stays at peak performance between cartridge changes (no clogging!), you can be confident smoke particles are being removed effectively.

Can Brio help with dust from my wood shop? From my pottery studio?

Absolutely. Brio's powerful fan draws suspended dust and invisible fine and ultrafine particles into the APART Collection Cartridge without clogging a filter. In our lab testing, Brio removed two to four times more dust than the competitive HEPA air purifiers tested, and still retained 90% of it's original effectiveness, while the tested HEPA purifiers dropped to 50%! What that means for you is ongoing effectiveness between filter changes and a lot fewer filter changes. Keep in mind that heavier, visible dust may fall to the ground and won't be drawn into Brio's air purification chamber. For heavier dust that has landed on surfaces, you'll still need a vacuum (Brio works wonders, but it's not magic).

Can Brio help my allergies and asthma?

Fine particles too small to see—dust and dust mite waste, pollen, smoke, germs, and mold—can enter the upper respiratory tract and may worsen allergy symptoms. Ultrafine particles can penetrate further into the respiratory system, making their way into the lungs where they can cause inflammation and can increase asthma-like symptoms.

While we can’t provide medical advice, we can tell you that effective air purification is frequently recommended by medical professionals for asthma and allergy sufferers.

Brio’s innovative APART (tm) technology is highly effective at removing fine and ultra-fine particles from indoor air.

How long will the APART Collection Cartridge last?

Brio’s APART technology draws particles out of the airflow, so there’s nothing to clog or slow the clean air delivery rate. And the APART Collection Cartridge is designed to hold a high volume of particles. Together these features add up to a long cartridge life. Your actual environmental conditions and use will determine how often it needs replacing. In less-polluted areas, the cartridge may last much longer than a year. In areas with higher, ongoing, or extreme pollution, the cartridge may need changing more often.

In general, we suggest changing the APART Collection Cartridge using Brio’s Check/Change Indicator as a guide or once every 12 months.

What size room will Brio clean and how fast?

Every situation is different and the answer depends on how many air changes per hour (ACH) you need, which in turn depends on the air quality in your home. Keep in mind the higher the ACH, the faster the air will circulate through the air purifier, removing particle pollutants. This table should help you determine the best room size based on your conditions.

Can I leave Brio on all day and all night?

Yes, and yes. Do you need to? We think so. Particle pollution in your home is often from ongoing, regular sources (dust and pets, mold, pollen, cooking, wood-burning fireplaces) or it could be episodic (a nearby wildfire, for example). Or both. Poor environmental air quality affects you inside your home, too.

Particle pollution is also dynamic within a room over the course of daily life. Doors open and close. People move from room to room. So do pets. And so do airborne particles. Rooms aren’t airtight. Windows leak. Heating systems exchange indoor and outdoor air.

Because of multiple types and sources of invisible particle pollution, we recommend leaving your Brio air purifier on, all day and all night. Set the fan to medium for everyday conditions and turn it to high when you need deep cleaning. The fan speed setting will also depend on the room size and your specific needs.

As there is less air movement at night, air purifiers can often be turned to a lower setting at bedtime. This really depends on the level of particle pollution and the effectiveness of your air purifier at a low fan speed. If you wake up in the morning and your air quality has gone down, you may want to turn up the fan to a higher setting.

To gauge your air quality, we recommend using an independent air quality monitor for the most accurate information.
