Developed by the Atomic Energy Commission to filter out radioactive dust from power plant exhaust, HEPA (High Efficiency Particle Arresting) filters are today used as the primary filtration systems for hospital surgery rooms, pharmaceutical processing facilities, electronic clean rooms, and more. Bring this level of air cleaning to your home with the Sunpentown Magic Clean HEPA Air Cleaner. This unit uses the same HEPA filter technology as used in the above referenced industries, at a low price and in a convenient package.
This air cleaner uses an interceptor-type HEPA filter that has a deep bed of randomly positioned fibers (made of micro-glass) with diameters ranging from 0.3 to 1.0 microns. Air channeled through this filter must follow a tortuous path, twisting and turning. While the air is channeled through the filter, particulate matter in the air impacts the micro-fibers and adheres to them, thus cleaning the air.
This cleaning process proves 99.97 percent efficient at removing particles at the size of 0.3 microns. An additional benefit of the HEPA filter is that it actually becomes more efficient as it ages, because more particles become trapped in it and decrease the size of the air passages through the filter.
Because of the incredible efficiency of the HEPA filter, the manufacturer recommends it be replaced once a year, however, it can last up to four years depending upon usage.
