In the harsh weather conditions, you would like to confine yourself to your home. If you close the doors and windows, the internal microclimate can be harmful. You can avoid this condition by buying a room air purifier. You can get wide options with a flexible budget.
How to buy an efficient air filter
There will be two major categories in the filter: traditional filtration and ionization adsorption. The benefit of the ionization is that the absorption will be rapid and efficient. The downside is that you will have to replace the filter regularly. But it is easy to use and only demand periodic flushing to boost the efficiency. But the purification effect will be slow. It might produce ozone as well.
The life of the traditional filtration will be short. But the purification is appreciated by a few users. It will come with HEPA, pre-filter, photocatalyst, activated carbon, and other some other components.
This will come with a micro-mesh filter. The mesh area will be small and it will be able to absorb the hair particles, fine dust, and much more. It will have a waterproof floor that can absorb dust. Moreover, you can clean the first-layer with clean water and can remove all the dust particles that are absorbed.
The second layer: Activated carbon
The second layer will be made of the activated carbon. It will be able to remove microorganisms, soluble organic substances, viruses, synthesize detergents, and some heavy materials. It can also deodorize and decolorize. The odor will be lighter due to the catalysis of element adsorbents and artificial enzyme corrosion until the odor is not completely absorbed.
Activated carbon is normally used as an air purification material. It is based on the physical absorption and can cause pollution. But once impregnated with different types of the catalyst, the pollution problem will be resolved.
The honeycombed activated carbon is used in the traditional filters. When it will be filled in the filter screen, the air inlet effect will be blocked that will result in slow air outlets.
The third layer: HEPA
It is known for high efficiency. It is able to remove fine particles and PM2.5 with the rate of 99.998%. Normally, a HEPA filter is divided into different types and all of them are made to influence the effect of the purification. In the current condition, most of the air purifiers come with HEPA filters. The buyers should check the filter and can replace it in the given time to increase the efficiency of the air purifier.
The HEA filters are divided into some sub-categories. The most popular type is H grade. The H13-14 filter is known for high-efficiency. These filters can achieve 99.95 % efficiency. The total rating of H14 will be 99.995%.
It is a developed one. It has an electrostatic dust removal to ionize the air. It is generated by the anode of the cathode. In this absorption method, there will be the possibility of the ozone production. But the harm will be negligible as there will be the low concentration of the ozone.
A composite structure filter will have one filter combination. It will be comparatively thick and there will be no crack penetration. This filter will come as a great combination of HEPA, Activated carbon, and deodorizing filter like any other traditional filter. This time we will discuss the Philips 3000 series purifier AC3256. It comes with a composite filter.
To achieve excellent purification, it has nano-thickness and ultra-thin mesh filter. It is designed to offer durability and increased efficiency. It is a multi-layer integrated filter that can absorb tiny particles up to 20 nanometers. The interior is full of activated carbon to offer exceptional capacity and efficiency for the complete filtration of toluene, formaldehyde, and the volatile organic compounds.
The composite filters are considered better than the traditional filters. A composite filter uses cross-laminate manufacturing process for the purification. As the result, the air will be gone through many turns before passing that will increase the absorption rate. The single purification efficiency will be higher and the time of the purification will be shorter.
The traditional filters will come with multilayer filters. In the traditional filters, the single purification efficiency will be lower. We can conclude that all the thicker screens are not more efficient. The fluidity of air will also matter. If you buy a hybrid filter, you will get a combination of the traditional filter that will purify the polluted air more quickly.
