Eliminator SE400E & SE800E

Section I Design

1. Introduction

The Trion Eliminator SE400E & SE800E are commercial air purifiers that have been specifically designed to remove airborne pollutants - including tobacco smoke, dust, pollen and mold spores - in rooms and areas where people work or relax. They are designed to be mounted onto a solid ceiling, semi-recessed for into a suspended ceiling, or wall mounted (SE400E only). Where appropriate they can also draw in additional fresh air.

Their features make them the ideal air purifier for installations into areas such as offices, conference rooms, restaurants, designated smoking areas, institutions and waiting rooms or any other place where people gather.

HOW THEY WORK

The Trion SE400E & SE800E utilize the principle of Electrostatic Precipitation. Air is drawn into the intake, through the metal prefilter, 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, and therefore attract and collect the particles. * The diameter of a human hair is about 100 micron!

2. The Filter System

There are two filters in your 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.

FILTER REMOVAL

TRION SE400E
Turn the control switch off before removing cell. Press the two cell access latches and the hinged door will swing down. Remove pre-filter by turning pre-filter clip 90 degrees (fig 2). While supporting the weight of the Collector Cell, loosen the filter retaining screw (fig 3). The filter retaining plate will now open allowing the filter to be removed (fig 4). To reinstall the filter, simply reverse above procedure.

TRION SE800E
The two hinged access doors are secured with retaining screws (fig 3). Release screws to allow the doors to swing down. Remove the Collector Cells as described above.

INSTALLATION LOCATION

The most effective location for the air purifier is
the center of the area to be cleaned because
the dirty air is pulled into the center of the unit
and discharged equally out the four sides. If
more than one unit is required, space them
evenly over the area to be cleaned.

Eliminator SE400E & SE800E

Section II Installation

1. Installation

CAUTION:
ELECTRONIC AIR CLEANERS CANNOT BE USED IN AREAS WHERE COMBUSTIBLE GASES OR VAPORS ARE PRESENT.

MECHANICAL
The unit has been designed so that it can fit either surface mounted onto the ceiling, semi-recessed into a T-Bar suspended ceiling or wall mounted (SE400E only). When installed with a T-Bar suspended ceiling NEVER support the unit from the TBars, the unit must be supported from the permanent ceiling.

SUSPENDED CEILING INSTALLATION
To hang the unit into a suspended ceiling, proceed as follows:

  1. Unpack the unit, open filter access door and remove prefilter and cell (see filter removal in section 2).
  2. Install -20 eyebolts into mounting slots with large diameter washers and lock-nuts as shown in sketch A. Alternatively, use drop rods.
  3. Install trim as shown in sketch A.
  4. Select and remove a ceiling tile near the center of the area to be cleaned by the unit.
  5. Attach a length of safety chain to each of the four eyebolts or fit threaded rod. Fasten securely.
  6. Lift unit into place and support unit while securing to permanent ceiling, ceiling joists, etc. See sketch A.
     
    CAUTION:
    IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE INSTALLER TO ENSURE ADEQUATE MOUNTING COMPONENTS ARE USED.

    DO NOT ALLOW WEIGHT OF UNIT TO REST ON SUSPENDED CEILING SUPPORT RAILS.


  7. Make electrical connections as detailed in next
    section.
  8. Re-install cell and prefilter.
  9. Close access door and unit is ready for
    operation.

SOLID CEILING MOUNTING
To mount the unit to a solid ceiling, proceed as follows:

  1. Unpack the unit, open filter access door and remove prefilter and cell (see filter removal in section 2).
  2. Select a location near the center of the area to be cleaned. lf you are fitting to wooden ceiling joists, locate the position of joists.
  3. Using the template provided, drill four holes into the ceiling and fit four 5/16 lag screws in the joists. Hex-headed screws will give easier access for final tightening. Do not tighten fully home.
  4. Lift the unit to where the large end of the keyhole slots in the top of the cabinet fit over the screw heads. Slide the unit so that the narrow ends of the mounting slots are located under the screw heads. Tighten the screws fully home.
  5. Install the lockdown location screw as shown on template.
  6. Make electrical connections as detailed in next section.
  7. Re-install cell and pre-filter.
  8. Close access door and unit is ready for operation.

WALL MOUNTED (SE400E Only)
Filter removal will be simpler if the unit is positioned with the access door hinge in a vertical plane. Locate the wall studs and follow the mounting instructions for SOLID CEILING MOUNTING.
 

ELECTRICAL: WARNING:
THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE ELECTRICALLY GROUNDED.

 

NOTE: This unit is designed to be permanently connected to fixed wiring. Installation must comply with all applicable electrical codes.

Hard wired remote control
Two sets of wiring are required to connect the unit. Main power to the unit is 120V, 60Hz, 1Ph, rated 5 Amp - Live, Neutral and Ground. A 5-conductor 5 Amp rated cable is required from the unit to remote control. Run the 5-conductor cable and the main power connection through the cable entry knockouts (see Fig. 5) in the cabinet and connect to the input terminal block (Fig. 6) as shown in the wiring diagram on page 10 and 11. Mount the remote control in the desired position and connect the 5-conductor cable leads to the numbered terminals as shown in the wiring diagram.

Eliminator SE400E & SE800E

Section III Service and Maintenance

1. Servicing and Maintenance

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.

During normal operation, the unit will make an occasional snapping noise. This is caused by large pieces of dirt accumulating on the electronic filter and is not dangerous. The Trion SE400E & SE800E units have anti-arcing circuitry to eliminate the nuisance of constant arcing. If, however, the arcing occurs every minute or two, it is an indication that the unit needs cleaning.

When a service is due proceed as follows:

  1. Remove pre-filter and either vacuum clean it or wash as described below.
  2. To clean the electronic filter, soak it in a hot (not boiling), a strong non-caustic detergent solution cleaner. Trion can supply an excellent detergent- TriDex obtainable through your Dealer. Alternatively, a dishwasher detergent does an excellent job. Soak the collector cell for several hours, then rinse with clean water. Do not physically try to rub the dirt off since this can cause damage to the filter.
  3. Allow the filter to dry thoroughly - preferably overnight- and replace into the unit or alternatively use force air dry setting on the unit.

Trion has a policy of continuous product improvement, and reserves the right to make changes in design and specification without notice.
