HEPA-Charcoal Combined Filter Technology
True HEPA air filter can remove at least 99.97% of airborne particles 0.3 microns in size and HEPA filters are considered the safest and most efficient method to filtrate airborne particles like smoke, dust, pollen, mold, dust mites and other allergens from the air. However, things like VOCs, Formaldehyde, odors and gas molecules are not effectively treated.
Because HEPA filters cannot remove gases, VOCs and odors that are typically 0.3 microns and smaller, activated Charcoal air filters are used in air purifiers to serve the purposes that HEPA filter cannot filter. Activated Charcoal is recognized as the safest and most efficient way to treat airborne chemicals, gaseous pollutants, fumes and odors. Each piece of Charcoal provides a large section of surface area, in order to allow contaminants the most possible exposure to the filter media. One pound of activated Charcoal contains a surface area of approximately 100 acres. In fact, activated Charcoal is so effective that it is used to combat the harmful airborne pollutants.
To provide a most cost effective filter in a way with multiple functions in air cleaning of particles like smoke, dust and pollen, and the harmful airborne chemicals, gaseous pollutants, VOCs and odors effectively, our newly developed Whirlpool® Genuine HEPA-Charcoal combined filter so called “2-IN-1”, giving a “One-Stop” solution in air filtration.
