Trion SE 400E Electrostatic Smoke Eater - Commercial Air Purifier

"The Trion SE 400E Smoke Eater is Engineered By Trion,  A 47 Year Old Air Cleaner Manufacturer That Outfits The  U.S. Navy Nuclear Submarine Fleet With Their Air Purification Systems"

The Trion SE 400E Smoke Eater can be used as a light commercial smoke eater or residential  air purifier. This unit has been specifically designed to remove airborne pollutants - especially tobacco smoke, dust, pollen and mold spores at an efficiency rate of up to 95%.

This is a great solution for rooms where people work or relax: tapas bars, office spaces, computer rooms, designated smoking areas, residential recreation rooms, and many more areas where noise level is a factor.

The SE400E Smoke Eater is a compact yet effective air cleaner, pushing out up to 400 cfm while quietly sitting in a small 2' x 2' ceiling tile.

Coanda Airflow Pattern

The SE800E utilizes the Coanda Aerodynamic Principle, in which contaminated air is drawn in through the bottom of the air cleaner and redistributed from all sides, rendering a 360° airflow pattern.  Also referred to as an
"envelope of clean air"

The SE 400E Light Commercial Smoke Eater Uses Electrostatic Precipitation to Clean Your Air

The Trion SE 400E Smoke Eater utilizes the cleaning principles of Electrostatic Precipitation. Air is drawn into the intake, through the metal pre-filter, which traps lint and large dust particles. The remaining particles, some as small as 0.01 microns*, pass into a strong electrical field (ionizing section) where the particles receive an electrical charge. The charged particles pass onto a series of equally spaced parallel plates (collector section). Each alternate plate is charged with the same polarity as the particles, which are repelled, while the interleaving plates are grounded, allowing this area to attract and collect the airborne particles.

* The diameter of a human hair is about 100 micron!

There Are Two Filters In Your Trion SE400E Smoke Eater Air Cleaner:
THE PRE-FILTER: This is the mechanical filter that lies behind the inlet grill. It is designed to remove large particles and can be washed many times before replacement.

THE ELECTROSTATIC FILTER: This is the deep aluminum assembly (Collector Cell) located immediately behind the pre-filter and is the heart of your air cleaner. It uses an electrostatic charge to remove particles so small that it would take a pile of many millions to cover a pinhead. When dirty it can be washed and reused indefinitely.

Servicing and Maintenance of Your SE400E Smoke Eater:

Beyond an occasional wipe down with a damp cloth, the units need little in the way of maintenance. However, the units are designed to collect airborne dirt and from time to time will require routine servicing to remove the accumulation. The service interval varies considerably between applications, but typically will range from six weeks in a busy bar up to several months in a quiet office.

Since the SE 800E is an electrostatic air cleaner, there are no costly filters to replace.  Instead, the electronic cell just needs washing from time to time - this interval will be determined by the amount of contaminants and the length of use.  Regularly cleaning your prefilter also helps extend this interval.  There are several ways of cleaning the filter cell:

  1. Use Tridex detergent (available on this page) formulated specifically for electrostatic filter cells

  2. Use a non-abrasive commercial cleaner or degreaser

  3. If you have a commercial dishwasher, that can work, but it's messy
