Meet the Erik 650A Air Purifier
We searched the world to build the The Ultimate Air Cleaning Machine®. In Germany we found the largest factory of high performance motors, just like a Tesla engine. So, you get high performance and reliability with low energy usage. HEPA filters were invented in America and through engineering and rigorous testing in America we have improved the HEPA filters.
This Erik model air purifier has two filters – a 4” deep GAC impregnated activated carbon/potassium permanganate bed pre-filter and a 12” deep main HEPA filter. It is effective for a wide range of gases and odors.

The Best Filters
This Erik model air purifier has two filters – a 4” deep GAC activated carbon bed pre-filter and a 12” deep main HEPA filter. Effective for gases for smoke and gas leaks (methane gas, sulfur gases, and many others).
- Pre-filter is 4″ deep combination filter with Merv 15 for small to large particulates and more than 3.5 pounds of our proprietary gas filter media that is effective for a wide range of gases and odors.
- HEPA main filter (99.99%+ at 0.3 microns) is 12″ deep
- Main filter has 4-39X more filter media – lasts longer and quieter
The main filter is the same industrial filter that is trusted by hospitals and removes much more than any true HEPA filter. Having more filter media means the main filter will last longer (2+ years) and it creates less air resistance. By not having to work as hard the motor can spin at a slower, quieter rate. These are the same filters used in Hospital Operating Rooms, Clean Rooms, the Nuclear Industry, Containment units, Laboratories, and Pharmaceuticals. Perfect for home use or commercial air purification.
Placement – we suggest placing the air purifier in the room where you spend most of your time. For most this is a bedroom where the unit stays plugged in and runs 24/7 or whenever you are in the room.
The Best Motor/Fan
Erik has the best, latest German engineered EC motor and fan so it provides higher air flow while being quieter and using much less power. The EC motor is a much-improved technology over the traditional AC motor that nearly every other air purifier uses.
AC motors use technology that was developed in the 1800’s and use more energy, can have an annoying hum, and are not as reliable. They are common because they are very inexpensive to produce.
EC Motor Advantages
EC (Electrically Commutated) motors use electronics to convert the AC voltage to DC to run the motor. EC is the latest technology innovation whereas AC motors use technology from nearly 200 years ago. With an AC motor from China, chances are that the copper was wound by hand and the ball bearings are of low quality making it unreliable.
EC motors are DC so they are more efficient and use up to 90% less power and in the long term can provide significant cost savings.
Runs cooler so greater reliability.
Has a proven track record in the telecomm and computer industry.
No motor hum that you get with an AC motor.
Why does the motor/fan start and stop more slowly than an AC motor? EC motors have a soft start programmed into the motor to limit the start-up current the motor draws (there are electronics built into the motor). The ramp down after power is removed is only a function of the inertia of the fan and the friction of the bearing system. A high quality bearing system will take longer to slow down and stop since the friction is minimized (alignment is better, lubricant is better, etc.).
Motor Humming 101
The humming noise comes from the fact that it is an AC motor and all the magnetics are changing intensity at the line frequency. When rotating, these forces are aligned so as to rotate the rotor. When the motor is not rotating or rotating at a speed lower than synchronous speed, they tend to make things vibrate back and forth and that makes the humming sound. If you have an AC motor that starts slowly, the humming starts louder and decreases as the rotor and field come into sync.
