Double the airflow. Twice the power.

Oreck's new air cleaner, The DualMax® Air Purifier, features two fans that produce twice as much airflow as our leading purifier. That's double the power to move the air, draw it in and capture pollen, dust, pet dander, cigarette smoke and other allergens that pass through the filter.

Particles filtered by the Oreck DualMax® air purifier

It's not just any filter, either, but our exclusive Truman Cell® filtration system, combined with our high-efficiency odor absorber, the Helios Shield®. Both are designed for high performance and easy maintenance — and will never need replacing. Getting fresher, cleaner air has never been easier.

Truman Cell for the Oreck DualMax® air purifier

Advanced engineering in a quiet, compact design

How does this unique filter system work? Oreck's patented Truman Cell® captures dust and allergens from the air that passes through it, pulling them out of the air like a magnet. At the same time, the Helios Shield® is working to reduce common household odors as well as chemical fumes such as paint smells, the gases put off from new rugs and furniture, aerosol vapors and cleaning supply odors from the air that passes through its filter. The dual fans then push cleaner, fresher air back out into the room.

Easy to use, durable

Most air purifiers rely on expensive filters that have to be replaced and can eventually end up in a landfill. The Oreck DualMax® Air Purifier features a permanent Truman Cell® that never needs to be replaced. Simply wash with soap and water, rinse clean and let dry. The odor filter, what we call the Helios Shield®, is permanent as well (it doesn't even come out of the unit) and does not require any maintenance. So not only do you get cleaner air with a DualMax®, you get to feel good about making a less wasteful choice.

Try the Oreck DualMax® Air Purifier risk-free for 30 days.

The DualMax has more than twice the power of the ProShield® Plus Air Purifier and is more compact than our tower air cleaner. Recommended for rooms up to 200 sq. ft, the 15.7 pound DualMax® was designed with portability in mind. Not sure whether to use it in the master bedroom, playroom or den? Then try it out in your own home, in all those rooms, and smell the difference it can make — risk-free for 30 days.If you don't love it, you don't keep it.® We'll even pay the return shipping!

Wonderful Ordered product and arrived quickly in box with no damage. The machine is very easy to use and setup. The highest fan setting cleaned out two rooms quickly and provided a neutral or fresh air feeling to the room. Great product and Glad we made the purchase. December 31, 2011
Air Purifier really does a grat job cleaning the air. We are smokers and live in a small apartment and did not want the walls to turn yellow or have it smell like smoke. So we purchased a few different types of cleaners only to be dissappointed, filters very loud, just didn't seem to work well at all. Then we got the Oreck and we are extremely pleased. The plate really does make cleaning easy. It has different speeds for heavy duty if we need it. Our son who is allergic to cats is able to visit more often as it picks up the cat dander so he isn't sneezing anymore. Best product I have purchased in a long time that actually works.

lighter feel than other oreck air cleaners uses muffin type fans...not the usual for low speeds the sound is very high speed (units has three speeds) the unit sounds like my old PC(less appealing to me)...not what I expected. I have three other Oreck models which I actually prefer of this one January 24, 2012
Dual Max I am a long standing Oreck XL user for 10 years. My 2 XL units were taken in for service. .Unfortunatley, service was going to be more than new equipment. So I went to and bought the Dual max. It does not quite compare to the XL. I called Oreck. They informed me that the XL's were for sale on QVC and no longer available from I will be returning the Dual Max and getting 2 XL's from QVC. Oreck is a great company and has a great reputation. I would buy anything from them knowing that it is quality. However, I would not recommend the Dual Max, especially if you are accustomed to the performance of the XL. The fans on the Dual Max are something you would find on the back of your desktop computer The Dual Max simply can't perform or compare to the XL. After all, you have to move to the air to clean the air. I just hate that my XL's couldn't be repaired at a reasonable price, but I greatly appreciate Oreck stepping in and making things right with a prompt refund of the Dual Max. May 18, 2012
Just got it and am trying it out. It seems to do just fine. High speed is noisier than I expected., I am hearing some spurts of static on medium speed but can't see anything so I am running it on High speed to see if it changes, It hasn't changed, as I am hearing the static spurts again.
