Philips pushes air purifiers with return to face-to-face classes, onsite work

Air-conditioned rooms without access to outside air can be cleaned with air purifiers with high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration systems. HEPA filters work by forcing air through a fine mesh that traps pollutants such as pollen, pet dander, dust mites, and tobacco smoke. Portable air purifiers that use HEPA filters as the primary mechanism of air cleaning are both easy to install and can be placed in different areas of a classroom and other indoor spaces. The Philips 800 Series Air Purifier can help indoor spaces clean by filtering viruses, allergens, or pollutants in areas up to 48 square meters. It uses multilayer filtration technology to catch dust and air, while the NanoProtect HEPA filter is designed to capture over 99% of particles as small as 0.003 microns, which is smaller than the smallest known virus. Philips Air Purifiers are available on Lazada.
