Some of the key specifications of the Airspa TMS 17 are tabulated below.
|Filters||Alloy, Cold Catalyst, Activated Carbon, Anti-Microbial, HEPA, Negative Ionizer|

The primary difference between the Airspa TMS 17 and other air purifiers is the purification system.
While most air purifiers have two or three layers of filters in their purification, the Airspa TMS 17 has a six-stage filtration system.
The six stages are comprised of alloy washable filter, cold catalyst filter, activated carbon filter, anti-microbial filter, HEPA filter, and negative ionizing layer. It is a combination of the mechanical and ionic filtration mechanisms.
Secondly, the timer mode is excellent if you want to configure the air purifier to shut off automatically after a specific duration.
It provides great convenience of use for users who wish to run the air purifier for a particular amount of time at night and want to go to sleep without worrying about the hassle of turning it off after a few hours.
Lastly, Airspa TMS 17 offers dual modes of operation. It can be controlled with the supplied remote controller or the touch screen panel featured on the body of the air purifier.
What All Impurities AIRSPA TMS 17 Removes
There are physical contaminants like dust mites, mold, pollens, hair, pet dander, etc. that are removed from the air with this purifier.
Secondly, there are chemical contaminants like toxic gases, odors, smoke, TVOCs, formaldehyde, ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, etc.
These gaseous contaminants have a tendency to seep into the furniture or rugs and carpets to leave an unpleasant lingering smell.
The cold catalyst and activated carbon filters of the air purifier deal with these toxins.
Lastly, the biological contaminants like microorganisms that 5 microns or more in size are dealt with by the anti-microbial filter with some help from the HEPA filter.
Can AIRSPA TMS 17 Remove Viruses?
The manufacturers have not explicitly mentioned viruses, but the anti-microbial layer is said to filter all microorganisms that are 5 microns in size or more.
There is also a HEPA filter that is also capable of trapping smaller bacteria and viruses.
AIRSPA TMS 17: How It Purifies Air
The first stage of the purification system comprises of the washable alloy filter that removes the more significant contaminants like dust, hair, pet dander, etc.
The next layer composed of the cold catalyst filter takes care of harmful gases like benzene, ammonia, TVOC, formaldehyde, hydrogen sulfide, etc. which have a tendency to seep into the carpets, curtains, and furniture of the house lending an unpleasant odor.
The most common culprits are candles, gas stoves, and other appliances that emit such gases.
The third layer is made of activated carbon with a unique honeycomb coconut shell design featuring charcoal granules that absorb cigarette smoke and unwanted odors from the air.
The layer after this is the anti-microbial filter that traps contaminants of size 5 microns or higher.
The fifth layer is the HEPA filter, with a tiny pore size of 0.2 microns. This layer removes the remaining contaminants in the air with an efficiency of 99.98%.
The sixth and the final layer of the air purifier is the negative ionizer.
The last layer is not mechanical filtration but rather more of electrochemical nature. It releases a ton of negative ions in the air.
These ions interact with the many impurities like odors, gases, etc. to decompose them and make them lose their basic chemical structure, which causes the unpleasant smell.
Filter Change, Repairs, and Warranty
Filter Change Requirements
The first filter is washable, and the last is an ionizing layer that also does not require any replacement, but both of these filters need to be washed or cleaned occasionally.
This would depend on the usage and the level of pollution encountered. Ideally, this cleaning could be a monthly ritual.
The replacement set for the remaining set of four filters is available for INR 3,000. These need to be replaced every 8 to 12 months for optimum results, according to the manufacturers.
The company can be contacted for purchasing these.
Repairs and Warranty
There is a one year warranty on the Airspa TMS 17 air purifier, which will cover all costs of repairs and replacements needed within the warranty period.
