Particle vs. SmokeStop
Particle Filter Replacements
Blueair HEPASilent® particle filter is the ideal choice for allergy and asthma sufferers as well as other health-conscious individuals that need high-efficiency particle removal. Patented HEPASilent filter technology generally provides higher filtration performance than other air purifiers, trapping up to six times more dirt. Fine polypropylene fibers effectively capture 99.97% of airborne particles. The Blueair 3-stage progressive filter effectively removes every type of particulate air pollutant including allergens, pollen, mold spores, dust, pet dander, bacteria, and viruses.
SmokeStop Filter Replacements
SmokeStop Filter is optional and is the perfect choice for allergy sufferers and other health-conscious individuals that need high-efficiency particle removal, but also require gas and odor control. The GO SmokeStop filter is a progressive carbon filter with a honeycomb-type structure that improves airflow and has hundreds of odor and gas absorbing carbon pellets. The filter contains 2.0 lbs of coconut shell activated carbon impregnated with a 70/30 blend of Potassium Hydroxide (KOH) and Potassium Iodide (KI). The carbon eliminates volatile organic compounds (VOC), which are responsible for odors.
The GO SmokeStop filter is recommended for use in rooms where heavy gaseous pollutants such as cigarette and cigar smoke or other VOC's are present.
