Honeywells World Renowned True HEPA Filter and Carbon Pre-Filter

Before I start telling you about the advantages of Honeywells true HEPA filter I must enlighten you with the job and working principle of a HEPA filter. A HEPA filter is kind of a filter which has the ability to trap and filter many typically small airborne particles which are invisible to human eyes. So how does it work? A HEPA filter contains a numerous fibres, generally made of glass, arranged randomly over each other creating somewhat a net shape which traps pollutant particles through impaction, interception and diffusion method. Now what makes the Honeywells true HEPA filter better than others is its ability to trap particles as small as 0.3 microns. Usually the gap or air-space in HEPA filters are larger than 0.3 microns. As the Honeywells HEPA filter can filter particles as small as 0.3 microns doctors recommend it to patients with dust allergy and patients having weak immune system. The HEPA filter can filter normal dust particles, smoke particles, pet dander, pollen, and even bacteria and viruses with an efficiency of up to 99.97%. Plus the true HEPA filter in Honeywell 50250-S is designed for any kind of room, may it be as big as 390 square feet or as small as 80 square feet. In a large room the air purifier can circulate the air 5x an hour. The filter also promises to last longer (around 5 years) than any other filters in the market, as it can be vacuum-cleaned and used again.

The carbon pre-filter acts as a preliminary filter for large particles before they reach the HEPA filter. It works because of the adsorption property of activated carbon. As the filter traps large particles like lint it reaches the expensive and sensitive HEPA filter, it increases the HEPA filters life period and efficiency. As well as activated carbon acts as a great filter to isolate any kind of odours or pungent smell that may be present in the air, making the air fresh.
