HEPA, which stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air, is a designation used to describe filters that are able to trap 99.97 percent of particles that are 0.3 microns. The best technology to pair with HEPA style filtration in air purifiers really depends on your lifestyle choices and concern. There are many different technologies that are used in air purifiers with HEPA style filtration, such as activated carbon, pre-filters, ultraviolet light, and ionizers.
Daikin’s air purifier model MC70MVM6 features True Electrostatic HEPA Filter that is capable of filtering out even the most finest of dust particles. The True Electrostatic HEPA Filter is capable of removing 99.97% of fine particles of 0.3μm. The filter collects dust efficiently with electrostatic forces. It is not prone to clogging as compared with an unelectrified HEPA filter, which collects particles only by the fineness of the mesh. This filter is capable of purifying a large part of air at once, making it one of the best air purifiers for indoor use.
In this filter, the filter fibre itself is charged with static electricity, and collects particles efficiently. It doesn’t clog because of low pressure.
Because it catches particles relying only on mesh size, it is necessary to make the mesh finer, making it easy to be clogged.
In addition to this and to support the functioning of a True HEPA Electrostatic Filter, Daikin MC70MVM6 airpurifier features a Dust Sensor Lamp, an Electrostatic HEPA Filter, a Deodorizing Filter, and an ECO mode among others. It also has a washable pre-filter that captures large particles like hair, fur, and dust by micro mesh; an Odour Filter, that eliminates smaller particles, bad odours, and harmful gases by advanced activated carbon; and a Vital Ionizer, that boosts cleaning power and freshens the air by negative ions.
