IQAir HealthPro Contains the Best Air Purifier Hepa Filter in the World!
Now It's Official, IQ's Air Purifier Hepa Filter Makes It the Best in the Industry, with Close to 100% Efficiency!
Press Release: The IQAir HealthPro is Now Certified to Have Close to 100% Efficient Air Purifier Hepa Filter
For Immediate Release July 1, 2002
Most room air purifier manufacturers make no performance claims for these dangerously tiny particles. That’s because the current 0.3 micron DOP test for particulate hepa air filters was developed in the 1950s. While it gives some performance guidelines for the efficiency of particulate hepa air filters, it does not tell us anything about which particles the filter is least efficient at filtering. While an air purifier hepa filter may filter out 99.97% of particles at 0.3 microns, it may filter significantly less at smaller particle
sizes. Since this smallest of size fraction makes up the majority of air born particles and because these travel deeply into the lungs' alveoli causing the most lung damage, it stands to reason that the best air purifier should contain hepa air filters with a high efficiency for the sub 0.3 micron particles.
The EN (European Norm) 1822 is a two part test, which identifies the particle size that penetrates the air purifier HEPA filter most easily, hence the name MPPS (Most Penetrating Particle Size). EN 1822, which was released in the year 2000 is world's most advanced and stringent standard for home air purifier HEPA filters and particulate filters.
Many high-tech manufacturers such as Intel already require their filter suppliers to supply them with EN-1822 certification.
While the home air purifier filters' efficiency at 0.3 micron gives some indication of home air purifier hepa filter efficiency for particles, it doesn't give you a worst case performance scenario. IQAir is at the cutting edge in determining this worst case air purifier HEPA filter performance for its indoor air purifier line. Independent testing of it's hepa air filters has determined that the absolute
worst case HEPA air filters' efficiency at any particles size is better than 99.5% for speeds 4, 5 and 6 and 99.95% for speeds 1, 2 and 3. As a result, the IQAir HealthPro air purifier HEPA filter captures up to 100 times more particles than many home air purifiers reviewed. No fair air purifier comparison can be made to the IQAir HealthPro's HEPA air filters because it far exceeds the majority of all home air purifier filters on the market today.
