True HEPA filter removes 99.97% of particles down to 0.3 microns that may cause breathing issues
The Fellowes AeraMax DX55 uses the high efficiency True HEPA filter in the air purifier will remove 99.97% of particles down to 0.3 microns. The True HEPA filter will remove dust, pollen, animal dander, cigarette smoke and even particles as small as bacteria and some viruses.
The True HEPA filter has been given an AeraSafe antimicrobial treatment to keep it free from odour-causing bacteria, fungi and mildew. You won’t need to worry about mould accumulating on your filter – this treatment ensures that the air leaving the machine is as pure and healthy as it can be.
Activated carbon offers greater capacity for removing organic odours
The activated carbon filter removes organic odours including those from cooking, pets, disinfectants, detergent, creosote, stale odours and tobacco smoke. It also removes some household VOCs such as ethyl benzene and xylenes.
PlasmaTrue ioniser assists in the reduction of airborne particles in your room
Airborne particles like dust, pollen, cigarette smoke and pet dander are positively charged and are attracted to the negative ions in a similar way that static from your television attracts dust. The negative ions, produced by the ioniser, attach to these particles and form larger particles that can be trapped more easily by an air purifier filter or attracted to surfaces within the room and consequently are taken out of the air. The ioniser can be turned off to suit your individual preferences.
Ensure optimal performance and no hassle with a filter change indicator
To take the concern out of maintenance, the AeraMax DX55 air purifier includes a filter change indicator to help you maintain optimal performance. The Healthy House® offers the range of Fellowes® Replacement Filters to help you maintain your AeraMax DX55 air purifier.

Extremely quiet operation great for both work or living environments
The Fellowes AeraMax DX55 technology allows for an incredibly quiet operation meaning it won’t impact at all on a work environment, a living room environment or even in the bedroom, it will simply sit unnoticed doing its job to improve your environment as you live, work and sleep.
Will clean the air in your room sized up to 30m2 three times per hour
The AeraMax DX55 Air Purifier will easily filter the air in your room size up to 30m2 at 3 air changes per hour on the high setting. The Healthy House® recommends their air purifiers based on a minimum of 3 air changes per hour.
Automatic setting means you can sit back and relax as the machine monitors the air itself
As well as a manual mode, with electronic AeraSmart sensors, the Fellowes AeraMax DX55 has auto mode allows the unit to regulate its speed according to the actual amount of particles and gaseous contaminants present in the air. This gives you peace of mind without having to manually alter the AeraMax DX55 Air Purifier settings.
Included in the settings is an Aera+ mode which is designed for peak allergy conditions and increases air flow by 50%.
Activated Carbon Filtration Information
What is Activated Carbon?
Activated carbon, also called activated charcoal, carbo activatus or an “AC filter”, is a form of carbon processed to have small, low-volume pores that increase the surface area available for adsorption or chemical reactions. Due to its high degree of microporosity, just one gram of activated carbon has a surface area in excess of 500 m2.
What Activated Carbon filters remove
Because of its super porous texture active carbon is able to attract, adsorb and neutralise smaller particles like organic gases, odours and some chemical compounds. These particles are too small to be trapped by other types of air purifier filters.
Activated carbon is a form of carbon that has been treated to make it extremely porous giving it a very large surface area available for the adsorption of chemical compounds. Activated carbon primarily adsorbs organic chemicals along with some larger molecular weight inorganic compounds. One gram of activated carbon has a surface area about one tenth the size of a football field.
If you would like to remove smells, gases or some chemicals from the air in your home an activated carbon filter is a very effective part of an efficient air purifier.
Replacing the Filters
Activated carbon filters will last approximately 3 months. Take a look at our Filter Replacement Service tab for peace of mind.
True HEPA Filtration
What it is
HEPA is an acronym for “High Efficiency Particulate Air” or “High Efficiency Particulate Arrestance.” This acronym refers to a filter that is manufactured, tested, certified, and labeled in accordance with current True HEPA filter standards. The minimum True HEPA standard requires the filter to capture 99.97% of the 0.3-micron particles in the air passing through the filter.
Filter efficiency studies have shown that 0.3-microns is very close to what is known as the “Most Penetrating Particle Size (MPPS)” for HEPA filter media. Efficiency is typically greater than 99.97% against larger or smaller particle sizes. Particles larger than 0.3 microns are more easily trapped, or intercepted, by the media. Smaller particles often lack sufficient mass to penetrate the media.
To meet the minimum requirements of a True HEPA filter, the filter must be tested and certified to prove that it will remove at least 99.97% (9,997 out of 10,000) of particles 0.3-micron in diameter from the air passing through the filter. Particles of that size are about 300 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair, and 25 to 50 times smaller than we can see. Manufacturing a filter with HEPA filter media does not mean that the filter itself meets True HEPA efficiency requirements.
What it removes
With filtration down to 0.2 to 0.5 microns the True HEPA filter will remove dust, pollen, pet dander, mould spores, mites, cigarette smoke and even particles as small as bacteria and some viruses.
Replacing the Filters
The True HEPA filter will last up to 12 months depending on usage and air quality. Take a look at our Replacement Filter Service tab for peace of mind.
What it is
Ionisation is the process by which an atom or a molecule acquires a negative or positive charge by gaining or losing electrons to form ions. An air ioniser is a device that uses voltage to ionise air molecules. Airborne particles are positively charged and are attracted to the negative ions in a similar way that static from your television attracts dust. The negative ions attach to these particles and form larger particles that can be trapped more easily by an air purifier filter or are attracted to surfaces within the room itself.
The ionisation process also has a disinfecting property on viruses and bacteria. This has a beneficial effect on bacteria and viruses trapped within the filter medium that may otherwise reproduce in that environment.
Ionisers are effective by themselves or, when combined with filters, can dramatically improve effectiveness of those filters.
What it removes
Ionisers will have a positive effect on particles such as dust, pollen, cigarette smoke and pet dander.
