Amcor Air Purifiers – What you need to know in 2020

Amcor air purifiers are a range of air purifiers that were released in 2006 but went bust in 2009 after realizing a range of air purifiers.

Amcor air purifiers used a range of technologies but most were inoizer heavy with the best example would be the HT2000 that was hepa and ionizer.

The company existed as an LTD based in NY with offices in Europe, US and Africa.

When the company existed they had the following products: [These have been found using the archive.org as the company no longer exists but it’s a good way for people to find out a little more about their old air purifier.]

Amcor-Air-Purifier

Air purifiers can be very expensive, and those who can’t afford $500 or $1,000 for an air purifier may consider an Amcor purifier to be a good choice. The models they make are simpler, with fewer settings, but they do remove dust and particles from the air and use washable filters so filter replacement costs don’t add up like they do with some air purifiers.

The three most popular Amcor models are the AM-90, the AM-40, and the AM-70 Ficus Tree air purifier. Another addition to the Amcor lineup was the ionizer model ht2000. In general, I recommend avoiding ionizer air purifiers unless you have a specific need case.

The Amcor AM-90 is rated to clean the air in a room of up to 400 square feet and uses a measly 44 watts. It has a HEPA filter, which removes over 99% of airborne particles of 0.3 microns or larger in diameter. Users report that it is quiet and that they like being able to wash the filter up to eight times before having to replace it. The AM-90 has three speeds with electronic controls that include a clock. It has an eight-hour timer and retails for about $109. The AM-90 measures 7 x 14.5 x 19.75 inches and comes with a one-year limited warranty.

A smaller, simpler model made by Amcor is the AM-40. It is similar to the AM-90, but has only two speeds rather than three. It has a carbon pre-filter that absorbs odours, a washable five-layer filter, plus a fragrance dispenser. It works in a smaller room than the AM-90, and users report that it runs quietly. Measuring 11 x 9 x 6 inches, it retails for around $50.

The Amcor AM-70 is unique in that it is made to look like a small ficus tree. It is designed for small to medium-sized rooms of up to 240 square feet. Like the AM-40, it has a five-layer washable filter. This air purifier uses a carbon filament to clean the air, and it ionizes the air. The AM-70 has a high and a low setting and measures approximately 14.5 x 14.5 x 46 inches.

Sadly all Amcor air purifiers are now discontinued (as of 2020) and no longer available for sale.
