Everyone wants to breathe clean or purified air in their home or where they work. I am going to tell you about the filterless air purifiers ‘ how they work. There are four main types of filterless purifiers, and I will tell you about each one and how it works to clean your air.
All purifiers do one thing and that is pulling in the polluted air and returning cleaned air. This is great for everyone in the house but especially good for someone is COPD or asthma, or someone with chronic allergies.
The filterless models do the same thing as the filtered models only differently. The first filterless purifier uses electrostatic charges. It charges the tiny particles in the room air, then those charged particles are drawn into the machine and the plate has an opposite charge which pulls to particles into the plate. The plate is permanent and can be washed and placed back into the purifier.
The ionizer places ions into the air. The ions attached themselves to the particles in the air. Then several particles come together and become clumped together in several balls.
These balls then fall on the floor. So you can see they do not go through the machine. The next one is called a photocatalyics.
It uses a titanium dioxide plate and an intense ultraviolet light. When the light hits this plate, that action produces oxidants which destroy tiny particles and odors.
Again these particles do not enter this machine it is all done in the air. You may want to do a bit of research to compare the different air purifiers.
Even though they get the particles of dust and dirt out of the air sometimes the dirt and dust does not actually go through the purifier machines. You just have to choose the one that you like the most.
