Dyson has unveiled the future of clean-home technology in India with the launch of the Dyson Pure Cool Advanced Technology air purifiers, which bring together Dyson’s expertise in airflow, filtration and electronics to tackle the issue of indoor air pollution and offer owners the air purifier that automatically cleans the whole room properly.
Air pollution is a global conversation, and as awareness rises, attention is moving from outdoor air quality to indoor air quality – where we spend majority of our time. Outdoor pollution sources like pollen, city pollution and particulate matter can enter the home even with closed doors and get trapped. This combined with indoor pollution sources like cooking fumes, cleaning products, pet dander and disintegrated faeces, scented candles and paints can make indoor air quality equally or more harmful than outdoor air quality.
Moreover, air pollution in India is now a year-round problem, across the country, contrary to popular myths surrounding the issue, including the fact that pollution is a seasonal or regional issue. In fact the air quality is rarely under safe levels as prescribed by World Health Organization. And 14 out of 15 most polluted cities in the world in terms of PM 2.5 are in India, as per a recent WHO report.
Dyson’s new range of air purifiers use intelligent sensors to automatically detect and display, in real time, pollutants such PM 2.5, PM 10, VOCs and NO2 in the home making the invisible now visible. The machine’s brand new LCD display, shows which pollutants are in the air before capturing them using a 360 degree fully-sealed filter system that combines a tris-coated activated carbon filter to remove gases, and a Glass HEPA filter to capture 99.95% of microscopic particles and pollutants as small as 0.1 microns. Air Multiplier technology and 350 degree oscillation project and mix purified air around the whole room to purify every corner of the room properly.
Engineered for real homes: Dyson air purifiers are designed to work in real homes. Some manufacturers of conventional air purifiers gauge their performance using a laboratory test method called ‘Clean Air Delivery Rate’. It is conducted in a compact chamber just 11.8m2 (127 sq ft) in size, with an added fan to circulate the air – and only one sensor to measure air quality. It is not representative of the average living room environment.
Finding this test method to be unrepresentative of an average real life room sizes and situations, Dyson engineers created a lab test called the POLAR test. It is based on a larger room size of 27m2 (290 sq ft), with no added fan as we don’t use fans in peak pollution winter season in India. The air purifier is placed in corner of the room which is how it is in real life environment. Eight sensors in the corners of the room and one sensor in the centre collect air quality data every 5 seconds, detecting particles of indoor air pollution that are 300 times narrower than a human hair. Analyzing the data across all nine sensors lets Dyson engineers ensure the Dyson Pure Cool air purifiers deliver a uniform cleaning performance throughout the whole room.
Sensing: A new LCD display shows which particles and gases the new Dyson Pure Cool air purifier is automatically sensing in real time. A unique Dyson algorithm processes the input from three sensors and then displays air quality readings.
Lasers measure and identify ultrafine particles. A separate sensor detects the amount of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds, such as benzene and formaldehyde, emitted from paint, burning candles and materials in furniture) and NO2 present. A third sensor measures relative humidity and temperature.
Capturing: An improved 360° filter – split into individual HEPA and carbon layers – in the new Dyson Pure Cool air purifier captures both particulate matter and gases. Dyson engineers have incorporated 50% more HEPA media into a taller and deeper filter, and they’ve introduced three times more activated carbon, which can absorb gases, odours, domestic fumes and VOCs.
Nine metres of condensed and sealed borosilicate microfiber filters capture 99.95% of particle pollution as small as 0.1microns, including allergens, bacteria, pollen and mould. Activated carbon filters, which have been coated with Tris (Tris Hydroxymethyl Aminomethane) to increase the absorption efficiency, remove gases including NO2, formaldehyde and benzene. Dyson filters meet the industry standards of EN1822 and H13-A filter class.
Projecting: The Dyson Pure Cool air purifier is the only purifier with Air Multiplier technology and 350 degree oscillation, allowing it to project over 360 litres of purified air per second to every corner of the room.
To avoid a cooling effect in winter with its bladeless fan, the Dyson Pure Cool™ features a unique new diffused airflow mode. Along with the forward airflow mode, which cools you as a fan with purified air, there is now a diffused airflow or purification-only mode, which can be used when you want to purify the air but don’t want cool air blowing on you. The air exits from the sides of the annular loop, directing the airflow towards the rear of the machine, as opposed to the front.
Dyson Link app: Available for iOS and Android, the Dyson Link app enables you to track indoor and outdoor pollution, temperature and humidity levels. You can also use it to control your machine, set purifying schedules and see how many hours of filter life you have left. Dyson has tied up with BreezoMeter to get hyperlocal & real-time outdoor air quality data on its app.
The new machines come with full Over the Air Update Capability (OTA) – meaning Dyson owners can continue to get the most advanced Dyson software even after purchasing the machine.
The Pure Cool air purifier comes in two variants-tower and desk and two colours- Iron/Blue and White/ Silver.
