LED LIGHTS (Red not used on FM 1000M)
The green LED indicates the unit has electrical power
and the switch has been turned to one of the 3 positions.
This manual provides information for location,
installation, operation and service of the FM 1000 E & M.
Before installation and use of the air cleaner, carefully
read these instructions to insure maximum benefits from
the unit and to avoid needless service cost that result
from improper installation.
The Red LED indicates High Voltage (approximately
6800 VDC) is supplied to the Ionizer / Collector cell.
(Red not used on Media unit).
FILTER ACCESS
The filter access screws located on the access door of
the unit hold the access door closed, and are designed
to automatically disconnect electrical power when the
access door is opened (Item 6, Page 5). The access
door may be removed for convenience of unit installation
and cleaning once in operation.
FM 1000 E ELECTROSTATIC
The FM 1000 E electronic air cleaner is technically
known as a two-stage electrostatic precipitator. It is
designed to remove airborne particles, dust, dirt, smoke
or other indoor air pollutants.
INSTALLATION
Air movement through the unit is controlled by its own
blower system. As dirty air enters the unit, it passes
through a pre-filter, which removes large particles by
direct impingement.
Read instructions carefully before beginning installation.
CAUTION:
ELECTRONIC AIR CLEANERS CANNOT BE USED IN
AREAS WHERE COMBUSTIBLE GASES OR VAPORS
ARE
PRESENT.
USE
GLOVES
DURING
INSTALLATION TO PREVENT POSSIBLE INJURY
FROM EXPOSED METAL.
The pre-filtered air then passes through a two-stage
electrostatic precipitator. In the first stage of electrical
operation, all airborne particles, even of submicroscopic
size are electrically charged (positive) as they pass
through the ionizer. In the second stage of operation, the
charged particles pass into an electrical field established
between a series of parallel plates, forming the negative
element of the field established between a series of
parallel plates that collect airborne particulate.
T-BAR CEILING INSTALLATION
DO NOT INSTALL THE UNIT IN A T-BAR CEILING
UNLESS THE UNIT CAN BE SECURED TO THE
PERMANENT CEILING OR CEILING JOIST, BEAMS,
ETC. AS DESCRIBED HEREIN.
FM 1000M MEDIA FILTER
The FM 1000M with media filtration instead of an
Ionizer/Collector cell utilizes the same type pre-filter but
a mechanical media or fabric main filter to trap airborne
pollutants in the filter fibers. As more pollutants are
collected, the efficiency of the media filter is increased to
a point where air delivery from the unit is reduced and
effective air cleaning does not take place. It is then time
1. Installer must provide the 2/0 chain or other
hanger material as required.
2. Carefully unpack the unit and check for damage
incurred in shipment. Report any damage to the
freight carrier and your TRION Representative
immediately.

3. Open Filter access door and remove it. Also
remove both collector cells or media filter and
set aside being careful not to damage either.
4. Install eyebolts provided with unit as shown in
Sketch A.
CAUTION:
DO NOT ALLOW FULL WEIGHT OF UNIT TO REST
ON T-BAR CEILING.
8. Install mounting trim brackets to each side to fill
in the gap between the unit and T-Bar.
9. Connect electrical power to the unit. See Wiring
Diagram.
10. If optional carbon filter is used, remove filter
from plastic bag and install in the guide rails
provided inside the cabinet behind the main
filter. Replace the main filter and pre-filter / door
assembly. Close the door and secure by turning
the quarter turn fasteners clockwise with a coin
or screwdriver. The unit is now ready for
operation.
The following information will be required for prompt
delivery of repair parts:
5. Select mounting location as near to the center of
the area to be cleaned or at the point
recommended by your TRION Representative.
Remove a section of ceiling tile.

6. Attach a length of safety chain (2.0 Min.) or
equivalent rod, cable or other hanger material to
each of the four eyebolts. Fasten securely. See
Sketch A.
When a part number is not listed, give the above
information and include the item number from the

MAINTENANCE AND WASHING
MAINTENANCE
When to Wash: Periodically the dirt collected by your
unit must be removed. The frequency of washing will
depend on the amount of dirt present in the air in your
locality.
The washing frequency best suited for your unit can be
determined by examining the dirt collected components
at three week intervals. As the dirt begins to collect, you

will notice a light film, then a very definite collection will
be evident at a later examination. When there is a
noticeable build-up of dirt, it is time to wash.
input line voltage. A minimum voltage of 108 VAC is
required.
After assembling and installing the unit, turn the control
switch to one of the 3 positions.
In most areas the collecting cell should be washed every
12 weeks.
1. The unit’s green “on” light should now be on
indicating the unit has line voltage.
2. The voltage to the cell light (red) should be on
indicating high voltage is being sent from the
power supply to the cell. (Not on FM 1000
Media).
NOTE:
Dirt build-up on the ionizing–collecting cell should not be
confused with dirt stains. Dirt stains are normal and
should not affect efficiency.
STEPS FOR WASHING (Electronic Units Only)
ARCING (SNAPPING OR CRACKING NOISE)
Does not apply to FM 1000 Media
1. Switch control switch “OFF”.
2. Remove pre-filter and cell.
3. Place components in automatic dishwasher,
stationary tub, shower stall or over floor drain.
Use hot soapy water and rinse thoroughly.
(Ionizing wires are easily broken. Handle the
cells with care.)
4. Replace pre-filter and cell.
5. Close cell access door.
6. Switch control switch to “ON”.
If arcing noise occurs due to wet cells, turn
switch off and allow more drying time.
If there are any problems, refer to the service
check list.
An occasional arcing noise may be emitted from the air
cleaner. This is normal and is caused by an
exceptionally large piece of dirt or other matter entering
the collecting cell. An arcing noise may also be noted
after cell washing. If this occurs and is consistent, allow
more time for the cell to dry. Refer to Troubleshooting
Chart.
CAUTION:
TROUBLESHOOTING WILL EXPOSE HAZARDOUS
LIVE PARTS. DISCONNECT POWER BEFORE
PROCEEDING. ALLOW THE CELL TO DISCHARGE
AT LEAST 2 MINUTES AFTER POWER HAS BEEN
TURNED OFF TO INSURE THERE IS NO RESIDUAL
CHARGE.
