Mighty Power Air Purifiers use True HEPA technology so this Air Purifier is capable of filtering out up 99.97 percent of particles from your room, as opposed to standard HEPA purifiers which can only filter up to 99.9 percent of pollutants. This represents a 200% increase in efficiency.
The Mighty Air Purifier is fairly compact and an unusual square shape compared to most air purifiers which tend to be either rectangular or column like in shape.
This air purifier loaded with features have been designed to keep your indoor air clean, get rid of lingering bad odors and extract harmful pollutants from the air you breathe as well as useful features to make it easy to use and monitor its effectiveness.
The Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier unlike most air purifiers uses a 4 stage filtration system. This 4 tier attack system incorporates the best from two different types of air purifier technology.
This is comprised of an initial Pre-filter.
Next comes an Active carb pre-filter. Carbon is a naturally absorbent material. Active carbon is carbon or charcoal that has been specially treated to greatly increase its surface area making it far more effective in removing larger particles (from 2.0 microns size and above) from the air. This includes particles such as mold, pet hairs and tobacco smoke. Incorporating a carbon filter is useful to you because HEPA filters (and especially True HEPA ones) are both relatively expensive to replace and can’t be washed clean without ruining them. Air purifiers that have Carbon filters to remove the larger particles first, extend the life of your HEPA filters because they take much longer before they get clogged up.
Thirdly you have your True HEPA filters which effectively remove small particles as tiny as 0.3 microns or larger from the air. Particles this size are too small to see with the naked eye but large enough to cause damage to your lungs. If you suffer from allergies caused by air-borne allergens you certainly need a True HEPA air purifier, because these particle will not be trapped by ordinary HEPA filters.
Finally, the Coway AP-1512HH Air Purifier has unique Vital Ion technology as it’s last stage for eliminating pollutants from your air. Unlike the other stages, vital ion isn’t actually a filter. It works by atrracting particles with an electrostatic charge and basically clumping or sticking them together. This is great because it can get hold of particles so tiny they can pass throug a true HEPA air purifier filter.
Most room purifiers use either ionic or ionizer filters or they use HEPA filters. The coway uses both together. In most cases ionizers are not recommended because they produce ozone which is harmful to your breathing (but good for the environment when its in the upper atmosphere shielding us from harmful Sun radiation). However, in the Coway AP-1512HH the quantity of ozone created is only a few parts per million which isn’t harmful to your lungs.
