All About Air Filtration

Our new Olansi air purifiers come with multiple types of filtration, designed to capture a variety of particles of different sizes. These include anion, UV, HEPA and carbon air filtration. Learn more about how these filtration systems can benefit you and your family.

Anion air filtration involves using negatively charged ions to clean the air. These systems release negatively charged ions into the air, which attach to airborne particles like dust, pollen, and smoke. Once these particles become negatively charged, they’re drawn to positively charged surfaces or collector plates in the filtration system, effectively removing them from the air. This process helps to freshen the air and reduce airborne pollutants.

UV air filtration uses ultraviolet (UV) light to purify the air. UV-C light, which is a specific type of ultraviolet light, is the type used in air purification systems. When air passes through a UV-C light chamber, the UV-C light damages the genetic material of microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, and mould, preventing them from reproducing. This process deactivates these harmful particles, rendering them harmless and improving the overall air quality by reducing the presence of these contaminants.

HEPA stands for High-Efficiency Particulate Air, and is a filtration method that uses a dense filter to trap tiny particles in the air. Air passes through a fine mesh that captures particles like dust, pollen, pet dander, and even some bacteria and viruses. The mesh is designed to be densely packed, allowing it to trap particles as small as 0.3 microns with high efficiency, keeping them from circulating back into the air you breathe. This helps improve indoor air quality by removing these small particles that can trigger allergies or respiratory issues.

Carbon air filtration involves using activated carbon to remove gases, odours, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the air. Activated carbon is highly porous and has a large surface area that can absorb molecules from the air. When air passes through the carbon filter, the porous structure of the carbon traps and absorbs gas molecules and odorous compounds. This process helps to neutralise or reduce unpleasant smells and eliminate certain airborne chemicals, enhancing the overall air quality in the environment.
