Dyson presents its purification range with new sensing technology


Equipped with innovative technologies, the new Dyson Purifier Formaldehyde range creates a cleaner home environment. “Unveiling our latest generation of purification machines, with new solid-state formaldehyde sensing technology, the Dyson Purifier Formaldehyde range is designed to capture ultrafine dust and allergens while destroying potentially dangerous volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including formaldehyde – the company explains -. The colourless gas pollutant is released by furniture and wooden products containing formaldehyde-based resins like plywood and fibreboard, as well as insulating materials and do-it-yourself products such as paint, wallpapers, varnishes and household cleaning products. Being 500 times smaller than particles the size of 0.1 microns, formaldehyde is particularly difficult to capture and, if left undetected, can lead to prolonged exposure due to the continuous release of airborne chemicals, known as off-gassing. While other gel-based formaldehyde sensors can deteriorate overtime, 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”. Besides, Dyson engineers have also re-engineered the machine’s airflow pathways to achieve fully-sealed HEPA 13 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 per cent of particles as small as 0.1 microns – the company says -. Improvements of the airflow journey have made the Dyson Pure Cool Formaldehyde 20 per cent quieter, without any compromise on purification performance to reduce unwanted noise at home”.
