Brio uses patented Advanced Particle Removal Technology™ to remove fine and ultrafine particles without clogging or reducing the airflow. Developed by research scientists and technologists at the University of Washington’s Sensors, Energy, and Automation Laboratory, APART technology keeps the clean air delivery rate constant and performance high.
The Innovative Air Purifier
Patented APART technology, developed and refined over 20 years of research, is an innovative, advanced use of electrostatic air purification.
As the powerful fan draws air through Brio's elevated 360-degree air-intake zone, the Pre-Filter removes visible dust and debris, including pet hair.
The first step in removing fine and ultrafine particles. As pollutants flow past the Particle Charger, they are given an electrostatic charge.
Charged particles are drawn out of the airflow and attracted to the disposable APART cartridge, where they are permanently trapped in dense foam plates.
By drawing charged pollution particles out of the airflow, Brio's clean air delivery stays at peak performance between APART cartridge changes.
Refresh Plus Filter
With particles removed, the Refresh Plus Filter goes to work, reducing ambient ozone before returning purified air to the room.
Comparison test: Only Brio stays at 90% of its original airflow.
In performance tests—conducted under identical lab conditions for Brio and similarly sized HEPA and Photocatalytic air purifiers—Brio never dropped below 90 percent of its original clean air delivery rate (CADR). Brio also collected 60 grams of dust—significantly more than HEPA-style and PCO-style air purifiers in the test group.
Live Virus: Brio removes 100% in 15 minutes
In independent lab testing, at LMS Technologies in Minnesota, Brio removed 100% of live MS2 virus (Covid-19 surrogate) in just 15 minutes. The test, conducted in a 1000-square-foot, sealed stainless steel chamber, used aerosolized MS-2 bacteriophage, a live FDA-approved COVID-19 surrogate virus, similar to coronavirus in size.
Bacteria: Brio removes 99.9% in 20 minutes
Independent lab testing by LMS Technologies shows Brio removes 99.9 percent of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria in 20 minutes and 100 percent in 30 minutes. The test was conducted in a 1000-square-foot, sealed, stainless-steel chamber, using an aerosolized form of the bacteria. Without Brio, 65 percent of the bacteria would still be in the air.
Ultrafine Particles: Brio removes 99.9% in 29 minutes.
Brio rapidly removes damaging, invisible ultrafine particles as small as 0.011 microns. In independent lab testing, conducted in a stainless-steel chamber at LMS Technologies, Brio removed 99.9 percent of ultrafine particles in 29 minutes. Without Brio, almost twice as many particles remain in the air after the same amount of time.
Smoke: Brio removes 99% in 22 minutes.
In independent lab testing, conducted at Intertek in Cortland, New York, Brio removed 99 percent of smoke particles in just 22 minutes. Without Brio, close to 100 percent of these fine and ultrafine particles would remain in the air.
Dust: Brio removes 100% in 21 minutes
In independent lab testing, conducted by Intertek in Cortland, New York, Brio removed 100 percent of dust particles in 21 minutes. Without Brio, close to 90 percent of these fine and ultrafine particles would remain in the air.
Pollen: Brio removes 96% in 10 minutes.
In independent lab testing, conducted by Intertek in Cortland, New York, Brio removed 96 percent of pollen 10 minutes. Without Brio, over 60 percent of these fine and ultrafine particles would remain in the air.
