Info: P500 Air Purifier
S&H included in Canada. The model P500 Air Purifier from Boneco filters out even ultrafine particles, providing you with clean and healthy air. Using HEPA and active carbon filtration, this recently introduced appliance removes allergens, pollen, viruses, dust, pet dander, dust mites, smoke and odors from the air. This unit can use a choice of three different filters to support your specific needs, including the standard ALLERGY filter; the BABY filter for families; and the SMOG filter for city residents and smokers.

How do HEPA filters work?
High Efficiency Particulate Arrestance (HEPA) filters are primarily made of multiple arranged fibres with a diameter of between 0.5 to 2 mm. These fibres form the actual filter medium. Just like a sieve, the particles get caught in these structures.
The dirt particles can be filtered out of the air by means of three different methods: the barrier effect (interception), inertia effect (impaction), and diffusion effect. All these effects can be found in the BONECO filters depending on the equipment variant (Allergy, Baby, and Smog).
HEPA air filters work with an efficiency level of at least 99.97%. Particles measuring up to 0.3 micron are retained. HEPA filters are divided into different classes and are distinguished by "MPPS" (Most Penetrating Particle Size) from E10 to U17. BONECO filters are assigned to the classes E11 (ALLERGY, SMOG) and E12 (BABY)
If a pleasant room climate is to be created, unpleasant smells must first be eliminated. All BONECO filters are therefore fitted with an additional activated carbon filter. This "filter in a filter" is made of carbon granules. Its micropores are able to trap and neutralize different smell molecules.
In order to achieve an ideal effect, over 270 grams of activated carbon are used in the ALLERGY and BABY filters. Thanks to their special design, these filters are also able with the same amount of carbon to absorb up to four times more particles or molecules than normal carbon.
The BONECO filter system comprises the ALLERGY, BABY and SMOG filter types. All three models ensure that the air is cleaned very efficiently. The filters are compatible with one another. If the requirements change because you move, for example, from the town to the country, the SMOG model can be replaced at any time by the ALLERGY model.
All three filters have similar properties. The ALLERGY filter therefore not only removes pollen from the air, but also dust and smoke, to name but one example. Every filter type also features special properties suitable for a specific task.
