Blaupunkt Airpure Filter APF 1 is an air filter designed specifically for AirPure Air Purifier devices. The replacement filters is designed with the latest design of HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Absorbing) that can potentially remove 99.97% of any airborne particles especially dust. It is also fitted with activated carbon that removes certain particles such as odor, micropollutants and more. With 3 filtration system, the air quality is perfect for those with asthma and young kids.
Stage 1: Pre-Filter
Pre-Filter layer captures big particles such as human hair, pet dander, dust, etc.
Stage 2: HEPA Filter H11
Hepa Filter layer removes fine particles as small as 0.3 μm such as airborne allergens that comprises of microorganisms, bacteria, viruses and pollen.
Stage 3: Activated Carbon Filter
Activated Carbon Filter layer is used to remove strong odour, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and hazardous gases in the air. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) that are present in the car comprises of polymers, foam, upholstery, adhesive, carpet, coating and composite wood.
First stage of air purification begins with Pre-filter that is made of non-woven fabric for better higher air permeability, prevents fiber slippage and increases filtration performance Hence, the Pre-filter is the first and the most important layer in the filtration process.
The Pre-filter can capture large particles in the air such as pet dander, crumbs from food, human hair, and dust. With the help of Pre-filter, the other two layers can work efficiently in the air sterilization process.
HEPA Filter H11
The HEPA (High-efficiency particulate air) Filter works side by side with a pre-filter to prolong the usage life of the filter and this is a cost-saving factor as you don’t need to replace the filters very often.
The HEPA 11 class is devised to have 95% filtration rate since the filter is made of glass fibre paper.In other words, AP1.1 and AP1.0 uses HEPA filter H11 to trap fine particles as small as 0.3 μm such as airborne allergens that comprises microorganisms, bacteria, viruses and pollen from the atmosphere.
Activated Carbon Filter
The activated carbon layer is the final filter for the air purification process. This carbon filter is made of small pieces of carbon in the form of a powdered block that traps hazardous compounds and allergens such as dust mites, smoke, danders and even molds.
Odors and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) that are present in the atmosphere such as polymers, foam, upholstery, adhesive, carpet, coating and composite will also be removed through the activated carbon filters, leaving behind fresh and cleaner air to breathe.
AirPure AP1.1 and AP1.0 have special aroma holders that are kept within the filter cartridge of the filter. If you are someone that enjoys essential oils and perhaps you don't want your car to have a bad smell, you can have a few drops of your favourite essential oils onto the aroma holder and let the air purifiers do its magic.
The aroma holder will quickly infuse the essential oil into the air while at the same time let AirPure sanitize the air in the confined space. The aroma holder is made of Polypropylene Cotton which means the cotton is moisture wicking and light, so the oil can easily infuse into the atmosphere.
Imagine living without air purifier, we could be breathing in potentially dangerous bacteria, viruses and other harmful components that will harm our body. AirPure APF 1 is designed to solve this problem by just turning it on anywhere we desire.
*It is crucial to replace the APF1 filter once every 6 ~ 12 months or based on heavy to light usage of the AirPure.
