In many parts of the country and the world at large, air pollution is a major concern. Organizations are slowly realizing that they need to safe guard their air condition to keep people healthy. But a new portable air purifier device is allowing individuals to get a head start on that.
A report from Tech Acute chronicles the PURUS Air i Plus, a portable air purifier that a team from the Industrial Technology Research Institute of Taiwan developed to be portable and pass over 20 air quality tests.
More from Tech Acute:
PURUS Air i Plus has been marketed as a purifier that can remove harmful particles in the air. This includes bacteria, viruses, pet dander, smoke, smog, dust, pollen, and mold in a one-meter effective diameter.
Its mechanism works by attracting the air around it, filtering it, and releasing the purified air at a 45° angle. This is due to the vortex produced by its powerful turbofan. Its air quality sensor continuously monitors nearby air, providing a clean, fresh, and safe environment every 5 minutes.
This powerful air cleaner uses a high-density spiral wire on a stainless steel plate. There is a 4000-volt plasma discharge that attracts the particles, adhering them to the collecting plate. PURUS Air i Plus does not use interchangeable filters, so you can simply take out the plate, rinse, and dry it with a cloth for reuse. The purifier improves efficiency, reduces the ozone emission rate, and prevents you from having to buy filters constantly.
The device features a 5V DC to USB cable which works via electric current, laptops, or vehicle chargers, as well as wireless controls and remote operation.
Let’s face it: an air purifier — even a powerful mini one such as this — cannot prevent the spread of coronavirus. But in a time when the pandemic has caused orgs to shut down their main offices, could small solutions like this allow orgs to save money on large system filters if only a few people return to the office at a time?
