About the test
Arel Supply performs a basic single-pass filtration test measuring the efficacy of a few popular air purifiers. To capture the data and measure, Ryan Gillum utilizes an Airy class-1 laser particle counter to show what is currently in the air and how much each purifier removes on a single pass through the intake and out of the exhaust.
In this test, Gillum compares some of the common air purification products that you might find to see which one performs the best. Watch the full video to see which technology came out on top.
Why is this important?
This is important because particles range in size, and as you’ll find in the video, not all air purifiers are equipped to handle all particle sizes. The CDC, WHO, and others have shared that some of the most dangerous airborne particles, like viruses, are very small (we call ultrafine) and it takes a special device to be able to remove them from your space. Other particulate considered to be harmful to humans are pollen, mold, dust, dander, fungi, and bacteria. If you’re a human with allergies then you probably know what we’re talking about.
When tackling the remediation of these from your space, it’s important to first look at ventilation and the source. To put it simply, if it’s not easy to fix the source of the problem or increase clean air from the outdoors, an air purifier might be the best option for your environment.
The following table showcases the results of the air purifier comparison test portrayed in the video above. Please note that the numbers are approximations based on video portrayal of the numbers.
|Air Purifier||Pre (Approx.)||Post (Approx.)||Efficiency (Approx.)|
|Mila||210,000 at .3μm||51,000 at .3μm||75%|
|TruSens||188,000 at .3μm||16,000 at .3μm||92%|
|Dyson||190,000 at .3μm||61,000 at .3μm||67%|
|Intellipure||192,000 at .3μm||0 at .3μm||100%|
|Molekule||185,000 at .3μm||95,000 at .3μm||48%|
