Specifications
The TRION Smoke 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, semirecessed into a suspended ceiling, or wall-mounted
(SE400E only). Where appropriate, they can also
draw in additional fresh air.

HOW THEY WORK
The TRION SE400E & SE800E utilize the principle
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 electric 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 microns.

Installation, Operation, & Maintenance Manual
T h e F i l t e r S ystem
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 (page
5, figure 2). While supporting the weight of the
Collector Cell, loosen the filter retaining screw
(figure 3). The filter retaining plate will now open,
allowing the filter to be removed (figure 4). To
reinstall the filter, simply reverse above procedure.
•
TRION SE800E: The two hinged access doors are
secured with retaining screws (figure 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.

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 or into the ceiling, semi-recessed into
a T-bar suspended ceiling, or wall-mounted (SE400E
only). When installed with a T-bar suspended unit,
NEVER support the unit from the T-Bars; 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
pre-filter and cell (see filter removal in section 2).
2. Install 1/4-20 eyebolts into the mounting slots with
large diameter washer and lock-nuts as shown in
sketch A (page 4).
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.
7. Make electrical connections as detailed in next
section.
8. Re-install cell and pre-filter.
9. Close access door, and unit is ready for operation.
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.

SOLID CEILING MOUNTING
To mount the unit to a solid ceiling, proceed as follows:
1. Unpack the unit, open filter access door, and
remove pre-filter and cell (see filter removal in
section 2).
2. Select a location near the center of the area to be
cleaned. If 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.
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 16 AWG
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 page 5, figure
5) in the cabinet and connect to the input terminal block
(figure 6) as shown in the wiring diagram on page 9 and
10. 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.
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.

Servicing and Maintenance
S e r v i c i n g / Ma i nte n a n ce
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), strong non-caustic detergent 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
chances in design and specification without
notice.
