AirOK launches Smoke Stop Air Purifiers with EGAPA technology
Pioneering clean tech company AirOk, the brainchild of a group of IIT Madras alumnus has launched an all-new Smoke Stop Air Purifier as part of its Vistar air purifier series, which is powered by indigenously made patented technology of Efficient Granular Adsorbent Particulate Arrester (EGAPA). The Vistar EGAPA Smoke Stop Air Purifier is powered with a cylindrical shaped ultra-dense packed particulate filter with perfectly folded pleat that can capture PM 10, PM 2.5, PM 0.3. Furthermore, while the purifier can arrest pollen, pet dander, smoke and other inhalable particles, it can also remove cigar/cigarette smoke, Formaldehyde, TVOCs and other toxic gases.
The polypropylene filter comprises a network of interlaced fibers that are twisted and turned to form a fibrous maze. The filter is a combination of pre-filter made of PET and ultra-fine glass fiber material designed to the highest quality to let the filter remove bacteria and other microbial contaminants. Larger particles that are too heavy to flow with the air get trapped on to the pre-filter and smaller particles that follow the air stream get caught in the filter fibers if their diameter is larger than the gaps in the filter. These filters comprise a network of interlaced fibers that are twisted and turned to form a fibrous maze. The highest quality ultra-fine glass impregnated pleated fibrous media provides a superior surface area for size. The pleated media is designed to the highest quality that it can remove contaminants such as bacteria and other microbial contaminants.
Referring to the innovative filter, AirOK Founder and CEO V Deekshith Vara Prasad said, “The uniquely designed EGAPA SmokeStop, which is a part of our state-of-the-art Vistar series, makes the air flow into the filter at 45-degree inclined position, thereby covering maximum surface area of the filter. The fine fabric material traps pollutants in a manner that they do not get released back into the air even if the filter is heavy loaded.”
The EGAPA SmokeStop filter has a life span of 8-10 months and is designed to fit into AirOK Vistar 450i, 550i, 650i, 900i, 1100i, and 1300i air purifiers. The Vistar series by AirOK, which now comes in three vibrant colour options – Metallic Silver, Black and White – offers the only air purifiers in India that can reduce Carbon Dioxide levels in the air. Along with CO2, HEPA plus Activated Carbon filter arrests several other acidic gases, Particulate Matter up to 0.1 microns, bacterial contamination and fungal infections caused due to airborne particles ensuring the cleanliness and liveliness of atmosphere in offices and homes.
