Austin Air Allergy Machine Purifier and Allergy Machine Jr.
What is the difference between the Allergy Machine and the HealthMate?
The difference is in the filters. The HealthMate has a True Medical HEPA filter and the Allergy Machine has a HEGA filter. A HEGA air cleaner combines a HEPA filtration system with an added military carbon cloth filter medium. Both filters are effective for people with allergies and asthma. The Allergy Machine can be more effective for people who smoke or are in contact with more odor sources. It is also much lighter in weight at 35 lbs.
Developed by the British military for use against chemical warfare, Austin Air is the only air cleaner manufacturer to use HEGA (High Efficiency Gas Absorption) in their air purifiers. The Austin Air Allergy Machine and the Allergy Machine Jr. clean up with strategically placed military carbon cloth and True Medical HEPA filter media.
Effective for an area up to 1500 sq/ft, assuming average residential ceiling heights of 8 ft. Provides effective coverage of large household living areas, small apartments and offices.
The Allergy Machine Jr. is a smaller version of the Allergy Machine – effectively cleans the air in single rooms up to 700 sq/ft – Bedroom Air Purifier

360-Degree Filtering System
Austin Air’s 360-degree intake system draws air into all sides of the purifier, passing it through a 4-stage filter. The result is more clean air delivered faster and more efficiently than any other air cleaner on the market.
STAGE 1 – Large Particle Pre-filter Removes particles easily seen by the (e.g.dust, hair and pet dander)
STAGE 2 – Medium Particle Pre-filter Removes small to medium size particles (e.g.molds, spores and pollen)
STAGE 3 – 60 sq.ft. of Certified HEPA Removes 99.97% of all particles larger than 0.3 microns
STAGE 4 – Activated Military Carbon Cloth Removes chemicals, gases and odors
True Medical HEPA Filter Technology
Some air cleaners have True Medical HEPA filter and some don’t, but none have nearly as much of it as an Austin Air cleaner. This gives Austin the most effective cleaning power against airborne particles.
Designed with the Chemically Sensitive in Mind
While many air purifiers have paper and cardboard in their filters and toxic paint on the outside, Austin Air Purifiers have solid steel construction, metal endcaps, and environmentally friendly powder-coated paint – no off-gassing! Unlike air cleaners that use electrostatic-precipitation or ionic generation, the Austin Air cleaners do not emit any by-products such as toxic ozone. The Austin Air cleaner produces nothing but clean air.
Tested and Confirmed
Each Austin Air cleaner must meet stringent government and independent third-party testing standards, with tests designed to protect you by ensuring the products you buy work as claimed. Austin Air takes no shortcuts and never submits its products for private testing to guarantee a desired result.
Extensive product tests on flow rate, flow design, and removal of vapors, gases and sub-micron particles have been performed by Battelle Laboratories, one of the world’s most respected testing laboratories for the Army Corp of Engineers at the U.S. Army Aberdeen Test Center. As result of these tests, Austin Air was chosen by the U.S. Government to fulfill the largest deployment of air cleaners in American history. They were also selected by FEMA and The Red Cross to address the serious air quality concerns in post 9/11 New York.
Low Maintenance and Longest Filter Life
Austin Air purifiers have the longest filter life (5 years) and lowest annual maintenance cost. The only maintenance required will be to occasionally vacuum the 4 sides of the air cleaner to remove larger dust particles. Austin Air filters are designed to last up to 5-years under normal residential use, so you won’t be bothered with frequent filter replacements.
