Air pollution is threatening human health, causing various respiratory diseases, asthma, cardiovascular diseases and other diseases. In particular, indoor formaldehyde is a serious problem. Formaldehyde is a first-degree carcinogen that can cause fetal malformations and childhood leukemia. So now everyone is paying more and more attention to environmental protection, but the air quality, especially in summer, high temperature environment, makes it easier for all kinds of substances hidden in homes, walls, books, and clothing to radiate outward. It is inevitable that there will be some disturbing peculiar smells in the whole indoor environment, which will not dissipate for a long time. If you want to get a clean and refreshing indoor environment, eliminate indoor odors, and prevent outdoor PM2.5, friends who pursue a quality life will choose an air purifier product.

Heavy air pollution hits, and the air purifier market reappears

Affected by unfavorable weather, many parts of northern my country have encountered severely polluted weather. As of November 4, 2021, 20 cities in the eastern region have activated orange warnings for heavy pollution weather, and 9 cities have activated yellow warnings. At 16:00 on November 4, the Beijing Heavy Air Pollution Emergency Headquarters Office launched a yellow warning for heavy air pollution, and Beijing’s air pollution gradually increased, reaching level 5 severe pollution.

In the face of severely polluted weather, consumers have started to panic buying air purifiers. According to data from JD Home Appliances, compared with the average daily sales in October, the sales of air purifiers in Beijing on November 4 increased by 73% month-on-month, doubling the national growth rate. As people pay more attention to indicators such as air quality and PM2.5, air purifier products have also become popular in the domestic market and have entered a period of hot sales.

In severely polluted weather, the components in the air will also become complicated. Pollutants such as PM2.5 particulate matter, allergens, dust, etc., are suspended in the air for a long time, and even contaminated on people’s clothing and brought into the home. In haze weather, opening windows for ventilation will allow dirty air to enter the room. Therefore, the closed doors and windows prevent the air from circulating. In addition, the particulate pollutants carried in by people coming back from the outdoors will make the indoor air. The deterioration of quality always threatens people’s physical and mental health.

Such an environment gives the air purifier a chance to show its talents. Turning on the air purifier can not only deal with particulate matter in the air, but also deal with some allergens, cigarette smoke, formaldehyde, and even some germs, effectively improving air quality. In the most common years of haze weather, air purifiers have always been a hot-selling category in home appliances, and once became the “standard equipment” in many people’s homes.

It is reported that air purifiers have a higher penetration rate in Western developed countries. The household penetration rate in the United States is 27%, and the penetration rates in Canada, Italy, Japan and other countries are all above 20%. At present, the penetration rate of air purifiers in my country is lesvss than 1%, and there is huge room for improvement in the number of air purifiers.

With the rapid development of the market, problems such as uneven quality of air purifiers, inconsistent standards, and false functional standards frequently appear. After the implementation of the new national standard, the competitive landscape of the air purifier market has also quietly changed. On the one hand, products with substandard quality are quickly eliminated; on the other hand, in addition to the basic functions of haze and formaldehyde, consumers have gradually deepened their understanding of odor removal, bacteria removal, and pollen removal, and the trend of product upgrades has become more obvious. In a market with many brands, how to choose an air purifier that meets their needs has become a common concern for consumers.

 

Olansif air purifier subverts the traditional air purification model through the indoor air health management system. It is the first to rely on three-dimensional multi-dimensional space on the roof, floor and wall, and adopts new technologies, new materials and new processes to achieve direct decomposition of formaldehyde, efficient sterilization and inactivation And other functions. No need to replace consumables, no secondary pollution, save money, effort, and worry, providing consumers with a cost-effective air purification solution.

After reading this article, you can also be an air purifier expert!

In the blink of an eye, the consumer rights protection day of the new year will come again. To this end, we are preparing the Special Planning] series, hoping to make more people have a clearer understanding of the purification industry (including standards and brands).

With the deteriorating atmospheric environment, air purifiers have gradually entered the home and become a necessities of the home after refrigerators, TVs, and air conditioners. Unlike other home appliance industries, as a newly emerging industry, the air purification industry is relatively chaotic due to the lack of comprehensive and systematic industry standards, and all kinds of chaos are full of chaos: shoddy, exaggerated functions, and price hikes. Under all sorts of chaos, the most severely damaged rights are consumers.

Olansi Product range-new

In order to protect the legitimate rights and interests of consumers and to further regulate the market, the first mandatory standard for the air purification industry came into effect in March last year. Since the Ministry’s standard came into effect, many consumers have regarded it as a life-saving straw to “beware of being trapped”, while many businesses have regarded it as an important weapon to “capture a larger market.” In order to facilitate the memorization, some people have specially refined its essence, the so-called “three highs and one low”. However, just grasping the “three highs and one low” can you guarantee that you are buying reliable and suitable products? This may not necessarily be the case.

As the first mandatory standard in the purification industry, the national standard  “Air Purifier” proposes four core performance indicators, namely CADR (clean air output), CCM (cumulative purification volume), purification energy efficiency, and noise. The so-called three highs and one low are high CADR, high CCM, high purification energy efficiency and low noise. But this formulation is simple but not precise.

CADR (Clean Air Volume), expressed in cubic meters of air that can be purified per unit time, directly reflects the actual working capacity of the purifier. The larger the CADR value, the stronger the purification ability. But it does not mean that the larger the CADR value, the better. The CADR value should be selected reasonably according to the indoor living area, so as to avoid the unsatisfactory purification effect caused by the “small horse-drawn cart” or the waste of electricity caused by the “large horse-drawn cart”. In addition to the excessive consumption of electricity, some purifiers that can emit ions also release too much ions, which affects the health of family members.

K15C

How to choose the appropriate CADR according to the size of the room, here is a judgment basis: (0.07~0.12)*CADR=usable area.

Regarding CADR, you need to pay special attention: CADR is divided into CADR for particulate matter and CADR for harmful gases. The values ​​of the two are usually different. The CADR value of particulate matter will be larger than the CADR value of harmful gases.

In addition, for a small fixed space such as a car, the CADR value will not reflect the purification effect more directly and accurately than the purification efficiency. The CADR value reflects how much clean air can be produced in a certain period of time, and the purification efficiency reflects how many pollutants can be removed in a certain period of time, which is also a way of expressing the purification effect. For example, the CADR of a vehicle-mounted purifier is basically 10-20. Based on this, it can be calculated that the car can be purified 3-7 times in 1 hour, but it cannot directly display the degree of purification, and the purification efficiency is directly informed for 7 minutes. It can purify 80%, and it can purify 90% in 10 minutes (the value is just an example). It can be seen that the purification efficiency can be more direct than CADR. Therefore, for a specific small space, it depends on the CADR, but also on the purification rate.

CCM (Cumulative Purification Capacity) is a parameter that reflects the service life of the purifier filter. The larger the value, the longer the service life of the filter and the lower the replacement frequency. It is a cost-effective indicator of the product. If CADR reflects how fast you can run, then CCM reflects how far you can run, so CCM is also an important indicator that cannot be ignored.

Purification energy efficiency, the amount of clean air (the ratio of CADR to rated power) that an air purifier can produce per unit power consumption, is a measure of power consumption. In general, the larger the value, the cleaner is energy-saving and the purification effect is better. It is important to note that the classification of the purification energy efficiency of particulate matter is different from the classification of the purification energy efficiency of formaldehyde, so it cannot be generalized. The specific energy efficiency ratings of the two are defined as: the purification energy efficiency value of particulate matter 2 is the qualified level, and 5 is the high efficiency. For the purification energy efficiency of formaldehyde, 0.5 is the qualified level and 1 is the high.

What effect does an air purifier have on the family?

In the past two years, with the outbreak of the new crown epidemic, consumption upgrades, consumers’ awareness of respiratory health, and air purification products have also ushered in an unprecedented outbreak. Undoubtedly, air purifiers have reaped the biggest dividend from the air quality crisis. Next, let OLANSI explain to you the importance of air purifiers.

 

In fact, for high-quality families, air purifiers have become the standard for home air purification. After all, who doesn’t want to have fresh air in their homes every day, and that their families can enjoy fresh air every day? Indoor pollutants are mainly divided into several types: formaldehyde, PM2.5, benzene series and TVOC.

 

Friends who know about indoor pollution must also know that formaldehyde is the most difficult to deal with among these pollutants, which is different from other pollutants. , The volatilization period of formaldehyde can be as long as 3-15, and it has the stubbornness to repeatedly exceed the standard. Secondly, relatively speaking, formaldehyde is the most harmful. Formaldehyde can not only cause various respiratory diseases, but also cause infertility, fetal malformations, and even induce childhood leukemia, carcinogenesis and death. The role of air purifiers can be said to be very important for scenarios such as serious air pollution, sensitive people at home, and mothers and babies. Then OLANSI recommends several products to protect our healthy breathing, so that everyone is no longer troubled by air pollution:

It is no secret that smoke inhalation is harmful to the lungs. But now, scientists believe that smoke may also carry and spread infectious diseases.

 

A study found that the smoke from wildfires is filled with thousands of microorganisms, some of which are known to cause diseases, such as bacteria and fungal spores. A recent report in the journal Science pointed out that “smoke may carry and spread infectious diseases.”

 

Scientists said that because these bacteria or fungi will be adsorbed on smoke particles and travel thousands of miles and across continents, they have the possibility of spreading infectious diseases.

 

Although whether smoke-borne microorganisms may cause human infections remains to be confirmed, some scientists believe that this possibility is considerable. Because in some areas, the increase in the incidence of fungal-related diseases is positively correlated with the increase in wildfire smoke. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also reminded that firefighters are at a higher risk of getting Valley Fever. Valley Fever is scientifically called Coccidioidomycosis, which refers to people who have fever and rashes due to inhalation of spores in the soil. And other symptoms.

Bacteria are so terrifying, then OLANSI recommends several products to protect our healthy breathing, so that everyone is no longer troubled by air pollution:

When you have low work efficiency, poor work quality, often criticized by leaders, etc., you may habitually think that this is caused by too tired work and decreased work ability. In addition, have you considered that it may be because the air quality in the office is too poor? A recent study by Harvard University in the United States found that office air quality will severely affect employees’ cognitive functions, including reaction time and concentration, which in turn will affect work efficiency.

 

In a day, the beaters need to stay in the office for at least 8 hours. The news that office air pollution causes various diseases among employees, ‘how can workers avoid office air pollution’ has become a topic of concern to more and more people. If you want to solve the air pollution in the office, you must first have a more comprehensive understanding of these “invisible killers” in the office.

 

In fact, the composition of air pollutants in the office is very complex. Not only the long-term release of formaldehyde, TVOC, benzene-based pollutants, ammonia, etc. from office equipment, but also various molds and bacteria hidden in central air conditioners. Long-term contact with air pollutants in these offices will cause immeasurable effects on the body. harm.

 

All kinds of molds will float in all corners of the office along with the transportation of cold/hot air from the central air conditioner. Long-term breathing of moldy air will cause bronchitis and bronchitis. In severe cases, asthma will occur, and staff with low immunity will also Headache and fever occur, causing skin surface allergies.

 

In the face of ubiquitous air pollutants, we should take a variety of measures, such as opening windows for ventilation and using air purifiers. Speaking of air purifiers, several products recommended by OLANSI are designed for most people, and the main product design is the combination of multiple filtration technologies:

Because our living environment is now polluted, there are a lot of bacteria and dust in the air. If inhaled into our respiratory tract, it will cause respiratory tract infections and cause tracheal diseases, so purifiers came into being. For the applicable people and applicable occasions of the purifier, we must pay more attention to understanding, and then let OLANSI explain it for you.

 

  • The most important thing is pregnant women. Pregnant women will feel general malaise when indoors with serious air pollution, such as dizziness, sweating, dry tongue, chest tightness, vomiting and other symptoms, which have an adverse effect on the development of the fetus. A set of scientific data shows that pregnant women who have been exposed to air pollution for a long time are three times more likely to develop heart disease in their fetuses than those born to babies born to pregnant women who breathe fresh air.

 

  • The second thing is about children. Children’s bodies are developing and their immune systems are relatively fragile. They are vulnerable to indoor air pollution, resulting in decreased immunity, delayed physical development, induced blood diseases, increased the incidence of childhood asthma, and made children The intelligence is greatly reduced.

 

  • Again, it is the middle-aged and elderly people, who have decreased physical function and often suffer from a variety of chronic diseases. Air pollution not only causes respiratory diseases such as bronchitis, pharyngitis, and pneumonia in the elderly. It can also induce high blood pressure, heart disease, cerebral hemorrhage and other cardiovascular diseases.

 

  • In addition, we want to talk about the driver, the driver has been driving for a long time, the car is lack of oxygen, and the car exhaust pollution is serious. At this time, it is necessary to equip the car with an air purifier, which can absorb the poisonous gas on the car and reduce the exhaust pollution.

Air pollution is so harmful to the human body. The next few products that OLANSI recommends to everyone are product designs for most people, and the main product design is a combination of multiple filtration technologies:

Air purifier is a product that we often see. Its main function is to decompose indoor polluted air, exchange all outdoor fresh air with indoor fresh air, so as to protect indoor fresh air. It can To create a healthy and comfortable living environment for us, the role of air purifiers is also what many friends want to know, so then OLANSI will explain to you.

An example of settled air is the function of air purifiers. Air purifiers can settle all suspended particles in the air, such as dust or fiber impurities, as well as other smoke, etc., to prevent these suspended particles from causing human respiration. Certain damage, at the same time, they can remove microorganisms and pollutants in the air, effectively kill and destroy the bacteria on the surface of the air, they can also kill the mold on the surface of the air, and at the same time remove the pollen or dead dander in the air. In this way, the possibility of certain diseases is reduced, and such a device can reduce the spread of diseases in the air. Having said that, OLANSI has the following two product recommendations, which can help us breathe healthily.

The air in our room is everywhere. It is something that accompanies us 24 hours a day, invisible and intangible, but it has a subtle impact on the human body. Over time, you may suffer from more serious diseases. Therefore, the air The quality of the air purifier will seriously affect our healthy life. Facts have proved that the air purifier can protect our health, and in the home environment, it has become a necessary equipment. The OLANSI air purifier has undergone strict The check is only for better breathing. It has passed the qualified inspection before leaving the factory and meets the national safety standards. It can better remove formaldehyde, remove toxic substances in the environment, and protect our health.

Tips for using Olansi H13 HEPA Filter UV air purifiers and air cleaner

Air purifier is something that is often used at home. Generally, when the air is bad, or when the air conditioner is not ventilated in the home, we will turn it on. The air purifier greatly contributes to household hygiene. Improve, at the same time, make the family’s living environment more suitable for the growth of the baby.

6.28.1

The role of the air purifier basically has three points:

 

  1. Generally, air purifiers can remove harmful substances in the air, and eliminate dust, particles, dust and other substances in the air. These substances are harmful to the human body. When the air purifier eliminates them, people will suck The incoming gas has also become safer;

 

  1. The air purifier can also remove formaldehyde, benzene, pesticides, foggy hydrocarbons and other toxic substances in the air, so as to avoid adverse reactions and symptoms after people inhale the body;

 

  1. An air purifier can also remove peculiar smells in the air. For example, a newly renovated house will have a smell of paint. When the air purifier is used, it will be greatly improved, including the oily fume generated when cooking at home. Or the smell of smoke can be effectively filtered, releasing fresh air, making people breathe more refreshed.

 

Of course, there are many points to pay attention to when using an air purifier. If it is improperly used and damage is caused, its function and performance will be greatly reduced. Therefore, we should also take care of it when using it. Then, what are the What tricks can we learn?

K09b_06

First of all, when you use the air purifier, you have to decide based on the air condition of the day. If the air on the day is completely ok, there is no need to turn on the air purifier all the time. In addition, if you use the air purifier for a long time at home, It is best to turn on the humidifier at the same time, and use the two together, so as to prevent the lack of water or uncomfortable reactions to the human body due to excessive dryness in the room.

Furthermore, before using the air purifier, the product must be cleaned to ensure the cleanliness of the filter and the cleanliness of the dust collecting plate. If there is a situation where dirt accumulates, it must be cleaned as soon as possible. Cleaning up after a long period of time may affect the use and the cleanliness of the output gas.

 

Finally, when using a purifier with high-efficiency filtration function, check the indicator light in time. If the indicator light is on, you must carefully check the purifier in time, and use it after confirming that it is correct. Generally, the indicator light is on. Indicates that the filter element needs to be replaced. If there is no indicator light, you can directly check the filter element. If the filter element is black, it must be cleaned. It should be noted that when we are conducting inspections, we must cut off the power supply and not open the host arbitrarily to avoid electric shock or harm to the human body.

4.26

In fact, there are still many points to pay attention to when using. The above three points are the most basic and most important points. Knowing these tips will make our lives easier and more convenient in the future. We can use it for a longer period of time. Of course, when we encounter different air purifiers, we should also use it according to the requirements in the specific instructions, and “prescribe the right medicine” when there is a problem to ensure the safety of the product.

HEPA air purifier can significantly reduce airborne COVID-19 particles

As COVID-19 restrictions ease nationwide and more people host indoor gatherings, investing in a high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) purifier might not be a bad idea, says a University of Cincinnati College of Medicine researcher.

Several published studies evaluating aerosols and submicron particles similar in size to the SARS-CoV-2 virion have shown that portable HEPA purifiers are able to significantly reduce airborne COVID-19 particles, says Ahmad Sedaghat, MD, PhD, director of the UC Division of Rhinology, Allergy and Anterior Skull Base Surgery.

A4_2

Sedaghat identified the medical literature showing published studies on the effectiveness of HEPA purifiers. His review is available online in the scholarly journal of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Foundation.

Air purifiers could benefit hospitals and physician offices where aerosol-generating procedures occur, but they are also useful for reducing COVID transmission anywhere that large groups of individuals congregate.

One of the issues with COVID-19, is when physicians perform an aersol-generating medical procedure any asymptomatic COVID-19 positive patient may release SARS-CoV-2 laden aersols into the air. Guidance from the Centers for Disease Control indicates that we can rely on our HVAC systems to slowly decontaminate the air during an hour timeframe. Studies in the medical literature are showing us that we can use portable air purifiers to do a better and faster job of decominating these airborne particles to keep our patients and staff safe.”

Ahmad Sedaghat, MD, PhD, Director, UC Division of Rhinology, Allergy and Anterior Skull Base Surgery

Air purifiers with HEPA filters can be used as very effective means to decontaminate the air above and beyond what many HVAC systems may offer,” says Sedaghat who also published studies documenting COVID-19 infection leading to reduced taste and smell in patients and possibly attacking the central nervous system.

“If people are walking around coughing or sneezing because it is allergy season and by chance they happen to be one of these asymptomatic carriers of COVID-19, there is a
danger of transmission in individuals not vaccinated,” says Sedaghat. “People are catching the disease from asymptomatic carriers.”

“The results of this study can be applied to our daily lives outside of a physician’s office,” says Sedaghat. “If you want to host larger gatherings you should consider putting the air purifiers into your living room to help decontaminate anything that is released into the air. HEPA based air purifiers work the best. HEPA based air purifiers decontaminate these airborne particles much faster and more effectively than  non HEPA filters.”

“They aren’t terribly expensive and you can buy these at any home improvement or department store to help decontaminate air borne coronavirus,” says Sedaghat. “This may be more important for controlling the spread of COVID-19 for people who are still not vaccinated.”

Air purifiers offer added protection but UC researchers also found that better-fitting facemasks greatly improve protection against COVID-19 as well.
