What it Means:
PlasmaPure is extremely effective at removing airborne contaminants, including fine dust, pollen, and tobacco smoke. HEPA is an acronym for High Efficiency Particulate Air. PlasmaPure's HEPA filter effectively removes 99.97% of all dust particles down to 0.3 microns. Your room will remain virtually free of pollen, house dust, mold spores, animal hair and dander, dust mites, bacteria, and smoke particles. The HEPA filter in PlasmaPure is protected by a thin pre-filter, which blocks large particles such as pet hair. This pre-filter is coated with Persimmon Catechin, which fights viruses and bacteria and helps extend the useful life of the HEPA element.
How it Works:
HEPA air filters provide a dry environment that tightly compresses trapped particles. HEPA air purifiers generally prevent bacteria from growing because there is no moisture (which is necessary to sustain life) in the HEPA filter cartridge. The HEPA filter component is basically an accordion of very fine, paper-like filter material. The material is loaded in this accordion or zigzag manner so that a very large surface area is present for air to be drawn through by the fan. HEPA filter cartridges vary in the amount of time they last. Most competitors' filters last less than three years under normal conditions: an indoor environment without pets, excessive dust, paint fumes, or excessive cigarette smoke. PlasmaPure's HEPA filter can last on constant low speed up to five years under these conditions. An indicator light on the PlasmaPure air purifier will alert you when it is time to replace the HEPA filter. Owners, however, can help prolong the life of the HEPA filter cartridge by vacuuming off the face of the pre-filter once a month. Persimmon has long been known to possess powerful antibacterial properties and has been used for centuries in China and Japan. Catechin is an astringent substance which acts to suppress the multiplication of bacteria.
