Hello! Welcome to a new chapter of our blog. I come to talk to you about something that is on everyone’s lips because of the situation in which we live. I am talking about HEPA filter air purifiers and their effectiveness against coronavirus. Surely you wonder: what is a HEPA filter? What types of air filters are there? Why is a HEPA filter better than an activated carbon one? Today I want to tell you what types of air filter there are for a simple reason: knowledge is power.
Yes, you read it well: knowledge is power and that is why we want to give you the knowledge of what types of filters there are. So you can choose the one that best suits you.
Come you with me?
Types of air filters for ventilation:
There are many types. Paper or cellulose, metallic mesh, activated carbon, textile for sports sweat, etc.
They all fulfill their function (some are intended for sweat, others for cars, etc.) and in this article i want to focus on those that purify the air for human consumption. The context in which we live forces us to provide that information.
We will focus on the air filters out there to purify.
HEPA filters (type of air filter):
HEPA filter air purifiers are coming out everywhere. As I have said, its effectiveness against the coronavirus has been proven and we should not be surprised to see its installation being promoted everywhere.
But: how good are they? HEPA is an acronym that comes to mean “High Efficiency Particulate Air”.
It’s an efficiency standard that is given to those filters that can remove particles between 0.0 and 2.0 micrometers (one thousandth of a millimeter).
They can be more complete or less, but the vast majority have ultraviolet light to finish eliminating what escapes them.
Activated carbon filters
Activated carbon filters are also typical to find in air purifiers.
They are especially used to treat oil vapors, various odors or are responsible for purifying rainwater.
As you can see, it has a different task, but combined with the power of a HEPA filter. Imagine its power!
Led Light (or Ultraviolet Light) as a filter
Another key element for proper air purification is that during the path that the air makes inside the purifier, it passes through an ultraviolet light.
But why? The answer is simple since the led light is responsible for burning those particles that circulate through the air (in this case) and leaves them ready for another part of the purifier.
Our purifiers have a built-in led light.
There are also anti-allergy filters or ion generator (ionization is a key concept that affects air and water).
What type of air filter is there? The answer is that many. But if they are all put together in one, we find purifiers with a unique power that will leave you speechless. Basically like ours.
What are you waiting for to get yours?
