avari 600 air purifier whisper quiet with electrostatic filter for home, bedroom, office and allergies, better than hepa, for allergens, pets, smoke, mold, dust particles, germs and virusesThe Avari AV-600 creates an oasis of clean air in your homes larger living areas. The patented electrostatic filter captures particles as small as 0. 1 microns (99. 97%), removing odors and harmful VOCs that most HEPA filters miss. The electrostatic filter was created based on the idea that air contaminants consist of polar (+/-) and non-polar fine particles. The Avari electrostatic filter harnesses the natural occurring power of static electricity to capture the smallest and most dangerous contaminants. The electrostatic filter is composed of a uniquely dimpled high polymer synthetic resin film. The tightly wound film is polarized on both sides (one side is anode, the other is the cathode). Polarized bacteria and viruses are easily trapped and destroyed by the electrostatic filter. Non-polarized fine dust is also collected by the induction of static electricity as the particles pass through the electrostatic filter. All this is achieved without ozone or carbon producing components. In fact, Avari AV-600 gives you better-than-HEPA air purity without the HEPA noise and expense. The high-efficiency design uses less than a tenth the energy of comparable HEPA systems, and the virtually silent operation makes it ideal for offices, nurseries and bedrooms.
