A high efficiency particulate air or HEPA filter provides premium filtration for cleaner, healthier air in the home or office.
HEPA filters effectively remove 99.97% of all pollen, mold spores, animal hair and dander, dust mites, bacteria, smoke particles, and dust (down to 0.3 microns).
HEPA filters provide a dry, sterile environment that tightly compresses the particles. They prevent bacteria from growing because there is no moisture in the HEPA filter cartridge. All bacteria and particles die when trapped in the HEPA filter because there is nothing to encourage their growth. You do not need, as some claim, ultraviolet light to kill the bacteria in a HEPA filter. 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. Over time the filter will plug, and the air will no longer be able to move through the filter effectively. You can detect this process either by noticing the reduced airflow or the reduced efficiency of the filter.
An indicator light on the PlasmaPure air purifier will alert you when it is time to replace the HEPA filter. HEPA filter cartridges vary in the amount of time they last. Generally HEPA air purifiers can last up to three years in an environment without pets , excessive dust, or cigarette smoke. HEPA filters in very dusty, dirty environments may need replacement cartridges in a year. By vacuuming off the face of the pre-filter, owners can help prolong the life of the HEPA filter cartridge. PlasmaPure's HEPA filter can last up to five years under normal operation at constant MIN fan speed. A pre-filter coated with, which destroys some viruses and bacteria, helps extend the useful life of the HEPA element.
