Crafted with quality, performance, practicality and user-friendliness all-in-1 one, this all-rounder air purifier A18 is certainly your great picks for your home and office.

STAGE 01 // AIR PURIFICATION

washable MESH FILTER

Washable Mesh Filter provides the first layer of air filtering system by capturing larger particles to improve the durability and enhance performance of subsequent filters.

Function • Trap large particles such as hair, scurf, coarse particulates and fine dust present in the air and prolong the lifespan of subsequent filters.

STAGE 02 // AIR HUMIDIFICATION

Adopting an evaporation technology, the humidifying filter fitted inside the water tank absorbs the moisture and releases it into the surrounding air to help to improve the relative humidity level.

Function • Replenishes moisture into the surrounding air • Creating an improved humidity for greater comfort and healthier living.

STAGE 03 // AIR IONIZation

Semi-permanent built-in ionizer produces millions of negative ions to promote air purification through the elimination of airborne allergens and germs. Negative ions also help to freshen up the air quality.

Function • Eliminate airborne allergens and germs such as pollen, dust mites, pet dander, mold spores, bacteria, fungi and viruses. • Freshen up the air quality.

STAGE 04 // AIR sanitization

novita Air Purifying Solution Concentrate is formulated with NSF certified and EPA registered active ingredient from USA, to reduce the potential risks from the airborne threats.  Introduced into the surrounding air through the 4-In-1 humidification function, the vaporized concentrate containing the active ingredient is encapsulated by the negative ions from the built-in ionizer. It diligently targets and attracts the bacteria & virus such as H1N1 & Rotavirus via the electrostatic technology, and achieving an elimination efficiency of 99.99% against E.Coli & S. Aureus, to protect you and your loved ones! 

Function • Oxidizes bacteria & virus • Eliminate unpleasant odour • Eliminate vocs • Freshen up the air quality.

MORE THAN 99.99% ACTIVE VIRUS & BACTERIA ELIMINATION IN 60 MINS

HEPA filter is well-known for its high filtration efficiency of trapping and removing 99.97% of airborne allergens and germs with a size of 0.3 micrometre in diameter. Besides the four primary trapping mechanisms - diffusion, interception, inertial impaction, and electrostatic attraction, the HEPA Filter is now also enhanced with active elimination of virus and bacteria properties. Through the infusion of a synergistic blend of nano silver (Ag+) and copper (Cu2+) ions into HEPA filter fibres, these nano ions conduct direct sanitization of the virus and bacteria trapped in the HEPA filter, assuring only clean filtered air leaves the air purifier. This serves as an additional protection measures against any potential virus/bacteria transmission or secondary pollution.

BY PURIPRO®/HEPAPRO™ FILTER ENHANCED WITH NANO SILVER COPPER IONS 

Step 01: Adhesion

The primary target of attack is the bacteria cell wall and virus protein coat due to the presence of highly electronegative chemical groups (e.g., peptidoglycan, phospholipid, teichoic or teichuronic acids, and lipoteichoic acid groups) that serves as sites for absorption of nanoscale positively charged silver and copper ions.

PM2.5 respiratory suspended particulates

PM2.5 are fine inhalable particles, that are generally 2.5 micrometres and smaller. These particles are considered dangerous to human health because they can bypass the body’s defence system such as nasal hair and mucus and get deep into the lungs, causing a broad range of health effects, such a respiratory and cardiovascular illnesses.

• Irregular heartbeat
• Aggravated asthma
• Decreased lung function
• Increased respiratory symptoms, such as irritation of the airways, coughing or difficulty breathing.

>99.99%
