Form meets function with the stylish Blueair line of air purifiers. Developed and manufactured in Sweden, Blueair offers high-quality, quiet, and energy efficient air purification, receiving the highest ratings in AHAM testing in January of 2003.
Blueair 601's HEPASilent technology combines the best mechanical and electrostatic precipitator technologies. BIueair products are designed to provide quiet operation, while boasting the most energy efficient air cleaners on the market. Because HEPASilentTM technology results in less air pressure to move air through the filter, energy used is from 35 to 120 watts of power or about the same as a common light bulb. Energy use depends on which of the three speeds are selected. Compared to other air cleaners requiring 200 watts of energy, energy savings over a five year period is $600 or more.
A revolutionary combination of advanced filter media and encapsulated ion particle charging chamber makes it possible for the Blueair purification system to achieve better results than either technology alone. Blueair's patented HEPASilent filter technology is proven effective at capturing 99.97% of the finest 0.1 micron particles.
The Blueair 601 contains a bacteria-resistant polypropylene particle filter that removes dust, pollen, dust mites, bacteria, pet hair, mold spores, and lint from your home or office environment, without the emission of ozone. Because polypropylene is waterproof, the filters naturally resist contamination from bacteria, viruses and mold without chemical additives or washes. The Blueair filters only need to be replaced every 6 months. The Blueair 601 is ideal for rooms up to 679 square feet.
The Blueair 601 Air Purifier carries a 10-year extended warranty with regular 6-month replacement of air filters (5 year limited warranty without regular 6-month filter replacement).
What separates the Blueair 601 from other Blueair models?
  • The Model 601 uses seven blades instead of the normal five blades common in other Blueair units. This allows for easier handling of pressure drops and a 25% increase in air flow. The blades are also shaped differently for added durability and performance.
  • The number of ionization brushes in the air filter chamber of the Model 601 has been increased from 4 to 10 for more efficient charging of the particles. This increased number of brushes gives the particles a stronger charge that leads to higher electrostatic filtration efficiency.
  • Since 25% more air passes through the ionization chamber in the Model 601, additional air intake and outtake inlets were added to the front and back of the unit for added efficiency. Air flow rate varies from 88 cfm to 470 cfm, depending on which of the three air control option are selected.
  • The motor is stronger and more powerful to accommodate the higher air flow in the Model 601. Sound insulating mounts assure silent operation for years of trouble free operation.
  • Casters located on the bottom of the unit allow easy positioning in the room.
