How clean is the air in your workplace?
The pandemic has created new problems and brought greater attention to the quality of the air in office spaces – never before has a cleaner, healthier office environment been more needed.
Not all filters and machines are created equal. The way they are designed, constructed and sealed determines the proportion of particles that are captured and those that are not. For years at Dyson, we’ve fine-tuned our expertise in filtration, beginning with the separation systems used in our vacuum cleaners and progressing to the cutting-edge technology integrated into Dyson purifiers.
Dyson purifiers are engineered to effectively sense, thoroughly filter and powerfully project:
Sensing: Formaldehyde is a common indoor pollutant and one that is notoriously difficult to sense and capture. Dyson wanted to integrate a sensing and filtration system that could effectively counter this pollutant. By developing a new sensing technology, Dyson sought to overcome issues associated with conventional formaldehyde sensors, including cross-sensitivity and a short sensing lifespan.
Capturing: In Dyson’s new purifiers, it’s not just the filter that meets HEPA H13 standard, but the whole machine. It captures 99.95% of particles as small as 0.1 microns2 such as dust, allergens and haze particles. Dyson engineers took a forensic approach to achieving a fully-sealed machine, creating high pressure seals at an additional 24 critical points to prevent dirty air from bypassing the filters and carrying pollutants back into the room.
Projecting: Using Dyson Air Multiplier™ Technology, the machine can project purified air to every corner of the room3. Auto mode enables the machine to maintain a preferred room temperature4 and air quality levels, while the machine can be entirely controlled by the MyDyson™ app and activated by voice control5.
Acoustically engineered to be 20% quieter6: Dyson engineers increased efforts to further reduce the sound output of the Dyson Purifier Cool™ Formaldehyde air purifier while maintaining purification performance. Through an iterative design, test, build process managed at the Global Development Campus in-house acoustics chamber, the machine was re-engineered to be 20% quieter. To achieve this noise reduction, Dyson engineers refined the overall airflow path by widening the aperture (slot in which the air exits the machine) and its geometry was improved. This reduced the amount of friction between the air and surface of the machine, resulting in less sound. Noise was reduced from 64 to 61 decibels at max fan speed.
