An air purifier equipped with both a Super HEPA filter and an ultraviolet germicidal lamp is the best defense against a wide range of airborne diseases. The AirPura UV614 does exactly that.
Here's How it Works: The UV germicidal lamp is located within the confines of the HEPA filter. When pathogens are drawn into the air purifier, they are trapped onto the surface of the true HEPA filter. An additional level of protection is then provided by the UV germicidal lamp when the pathogens are then flooded by the rays of the UV germicidal lamp which destroy their DNA, effectively killing them. Certain pathogens require more time to eradicate, and this design allows for that. The placement of the UV lamp within the HEPA chamber also ensures that they cannot escape back into your airstream like other purifiers on the market.
- Filters certified as HEPA must remove 99.97% of all airborne particles that are greater than 0.3 microns in size.
- The Airpura UV614 purifies with a Super HEPA filter which exceeds this standard and has 99.99% efficiency in filtering these airborne particles.
