What is a HEPA filter?

HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters are filters with a great capacity to filter small particles (really tiny ones!). WINIX HEPA filters remove more than 99.999% of the particles from the air stream that passes through them. These particles can be allergens, viruses, bacteria, chemical compounds, dust and many more. This is of great help for people with asthma, allergies or those who suffer from respiratory problems. These types of filters are becoming very important during the COVID-19 crisis by helping to reduce the virus indoors, thus reducing the spread of the virus. Our HEPA filters are the reason why so many WINIX Air Purifiers have been installed during the current pandemic in houses, schools, hospitals and offices, and the reason why our Air Purifiers are useful in improving the quality of life of those who suffer from allergies and asthma.

How does a HEPA Filter work?

When choosing one of our Air Purifiers for your bedroom, living room or your home office, the element to look at is clearly the HEPA filter. The quality of the HEPA filter used by the Air Purifier is key, as it is the most important element in the filtration process, cleaning the air of particles that are harmful to health and releasing clean air. How does it work? A WINIX Air Purifier absorbs the air, pass the air through our filtration stages (including the HEPA filter), and release purified and clean air into the room. The filter is composed of a mesh of randomly placed fiber, which are usually layers of cellulose, synthetic fiber or glass fibers. These fibers are arranged in an accordion shape, which gives them a greater capacity to capture the particles. A WINIX Air Purifier and our HEPA filters are simply removing the smallest dust particles op to 0.1 microns.

HEPA filter efficiency

Currently it is not possible to achieve 100% filtration, although this technology is very close to it, because a HEPA filter retains 99.999% of the Most Penetrating Particles (MPPS) of 0.12 to 0.25 microns. A HEPA filter is able to do this with the smallest and Most Penetrating Particle Size (MPPS), now imagine how effective they are against particles larger than one micron, which are those particles that viruses tend to have attached to. They are even easier to filter and retain by the HEPA filter. Therefore, the efficiency of a HEPA filter is almost 100%. There is no more effective air treatment technology at this time.
