It has been designed to capture ultra-fine dust and allergens, whilst destroying potentially dangerous volatile organic compounds – including formaldehyde.
Best of all? It it both a cooling device and heater too – so you can use it all year round – winning.
Formaldehyde is a colourless gas pollutant, released by furniture and wooden products containing formaldehyde-based resins like plywood and fibreboard, insulating materials and do-it-yourself products such as paint, wallpapers, varnishes and household cleaning products. Which is something we’ve all been partaking in over lockdown.
Being 500 times smaller than particles the size of 0.1 microns, it is particularly difficult to capture and if left undetected can lead to prolonged exposure due to continuous release of airborne chemicals, known as off-gassing.
While other gel-based formaldehyde sensors can deteriorate overtime and are easily confused with other VOC pollution, Dyson’s new, solid-state formaldehyde sensor works alongside Dyson’s unique algorithm to precisely monitor formaldehyde levels- intelligently ignoring other gases which are detected by a dedicated VOC sensor. How good is that?
Tireless and ever-dissatisfied, Dyson engineers have also re-engineered the machine airflow pathways to achieve fully-sealed standard filtration – not only ensuring that no air bypasses the filter, but blocking any potential leak points through which dirty air might enter the airflow.
This means Dyson’s latest purifiers remove 99.95% of particles as small as 0.1 microns. Improvements of the airflow journey have made the Dyson Pure Cool Formaldehyde 20% quieter, without any compromise on purification performance to reduce unwanted noise at home.
Alex Knox, Vice President of Environmental Care at Dyson said: “The off-gassing tendency of formaldehyde means that it can go undetected in a home for years. Dyson has engineered a machine that provides accurate and successful sensing, capture and destruction of the pollutant. Our solid-state sensor doesn’t dry out overtime, lasting the lifetime of the machine. The COVID-19 pandemic has raised global awareness about the air that we breathe and Dyson’s commitment to providing cleaner air through innovation and technology remains at the forefront of our mission.”
Using Dyson Air Multiplier Technology, the machine can project purified air to every corner of the room. Auto mode enables the machine to maintain a preferred room temperate and air quality levels, while the machine can be entirely controlled by the Dyson Link App and activated by voice control. So you never have to worry about your home, childen’s bedroom or working from home space again.
