The History of Air Purifiers

time:2016-05-06 Author:Airbus hits:

It is probably safe to say, many consumers never really thought much about how air purifiers came into existence. To get a better understanding of “how” they were developed, we will first cover “why” they were developed.

Why Air Purifiers were Developed

The purpose of an air purifier is to remove various types of irritating and harmful contaminants from the air. These contaminants can be in the form of dust, pollen, pet dander, dust mites, mold spores or smoke. The main users of air purifiers are allergy sufferers and people with respiratory problems, such as asthma. To provide a form of relief for these users, inventors took many years to create and test various types of air purifier systems for functionality, reliability and safety.



Modern Air Purifiers
Today, air purifier systems for home and commercial use are readily available and the best ones are generally recommended for helping with symptoms of asthma and allergy. There are many variations of air purifiers on the market. Following are a few of the more common types.
Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation – This type of air cleaner sterilizes fan-forced air as it passes by UV lamps.
HEPA Filter – Contaminated air particles pass through a filter by forced air and get trapped within the filter.
Activated Carbon – This porous material absorbs chemicals that are in a molecular state. It cannot absorb large contaminated particles. It is usually used with other types of filter technology and is most effective at filtering harmful gasses.
Ionizer purifiers – This type of air purifier uses electrically charged surfaces to generate electrically charged gas ions or air. These charged ions then attach themselves to any airborne particles found in the air and are captured by a charged collector plate. Ionizer purifiers release trace amounts of ozone into the air but the amount is within safety standard limits.
Air purifiers have gone through a long process of development over many centuries. From the basic over the mouth and nose device, to the advanced self-standing systems used today. As environmental pollutants continue to be a by-product of technological advances, air purifiers will continue to be a highly needed product.
