Blueair Air Purifiers: models 203, 403, 450E, 503, 603 and 650E Features and Benefits:
Near Silent Operation – Since air passes easily
through Blueair filter media, the fan doesn’t have to work as hard or as
loud. Even the housing is designed with quiet operation in mind,
replacing sound-sonant plastic with noise-muffling steel.
Award Winning Swedish Design – Its sleek
contemporary look has earned Blueair one of the most prestigious design
awards in Scandinavia, the Excellent Swedish Design Award.
Protective Steel Housing – The Blueair system
housing is made of galvanized steel, rather than less durable plastic.
Zero Ozone Emission – Blueair systems use a very low electrical current
to minimize ozone production and sealed steel housing chamber to keep
ozone contained. Testing shows the ozone concentration in our system’s
output air is actually lower than in the incoming air.
Low Energy Consumption – Blueair is among the first
to earn the energy star designation for air purifiers, a program
developed in the United States and sponsored by the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (epa) and the U.S. department of Energy. All models
exceed energy star’s minimum energy efficiency guidelines.*
Easy to Use & Maintain – Plug it in and select the speed setting.
Blueair works so quietly, at first you may find yourself pondering if
it’s turned on. Blueair filters require no weekly additives or filter
washing and the grills and powder-coated steel exterior are easy to wipe
Industry High CADR – CADR was developed by the
Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) in the United States,
to help consumers worldwide determine how well an air cleaner reduces
airborne pollutants such as tobacco smoke, dust and pollen – by
indicating the volume of filtered air delivered. The higher the Clean
Air Delivery Rate (CADR), the faster the unit filters the air.
CADR takes into account:
• the size of the particle removed
• what percentage of particles are removed
• the volume of air actually moving through the system
When the particle size and filter efficiency of any two air cleaners
are the same (as they often are), CADR is the key to choosing the more
effective system. To ensure accuracy and fairness, CADR testing is
performed only through AHAM, an independent industry organization. CADR
test results are recognized as accurate and impartial by the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency.
Air volume is often described as air exchange (the number of times
the total volume of air in the room is processed by the unit within a
given period of time). Some manufacturers substitute air exchange rates
for CADR results, but they are not equivalent. CADR numbers give a much
more precise report of an air purifier’s performance.
Why do Blueair filters trap six times more dirt than filters in typical air purifiers?
The reason is the filter’s progressive structure. Most filters from other air purifier manufacturers are thinner and usually consist of the same size fiber throughout. Blueair filters have millions of ultra thin fibers in three different sizes. Thus, the name progressive. The first layer captures larger particles like pollen & dust. The second and third capture smaller particles like bacteria and exhaust.
