A: The Patriot Pure Air has 7 stages, to deliver incredible filtration power. The aluminum pre-filter removes large dust granules, dander, pollen, and other pollutants. Easily washed and reusable.
A cold catalyst filter removes formaldehyde, ammonia, benzene, TVOC, hydrogen sulfide and other harmful gases released by plywood, furniture, wallpapers, carpets, curtains and other household items.
The honeycomb activated carbon filter uses adsorption to remove organic compounds and odors from the air. The antibacterial filter removes bacteria down to 5 microns and, with its embedded antimicrobial agents, efficiently kills airborne bacteria.
The high efficiency HEPA filter effectively removes over 99% of dust, bacteria, fungi, viruses, allergens and other microscopic particles. The Patriot Pure Air Purification HEPA filter traps anything larger than 0.03 microns.
Unlike many air purifiers, Patriot Pure also includes a UV germicidal lamp that uses 365 nm UV light to purify the air, and also eliminate odor caused by smoke and mold.
Finally, the ionizer releases 1.2 million anions per cubic inch which negatively charge the oxygen in the air. These negatively charged ions work like glue to clump together positively-charged particles like airborne dust, bacteria, viruses and smoke which then become too heavy to stay in the air.
