Unveiling our latest generation of purification machines in UAE, with new solid-state formaldehyde sensing technology, the Dyson Purifier Formaldehyde range is designed to capture ultra-fine dust and allergens while destroying potentially dangerous volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including formaldehyde³. The colourless gas pollutant is released by furniture and wooden products containing formaldehyde-based resins like plywood and fibreboard, as well as insulating materials and do-it-yourself products such as paint, wallpapers, varnishes, and household cleaning products.
While other gel-based formaldehyde sensors can deteriorate over time and are easily confused with other VOC pollution, Dyson’s new, solid-state formaldehyde sensor works alongside Dyson’s unique algorithm to precisely monitor formaldehyde levels- intelligently ignoring other gases which are detected by a dedicated VOC sensor.
Tireless and ever-dissatisfied, Dyson engineers have also re-engineered the machine airflow pathways to achieve fully-sealed HEPA 13 standard filtration – not only ensuring that no air bypasses the filter but blocking any potential leak points through which dirty air might enter the airflow. This means Dyson’s latest purifiers remove 99.95% of particles as small as 0.1 microns.
Engineered for real homes
Dyson Purifier machines are engineered for real spaces. The industry standard for testing air purifiers measures performance using a laboratory test conducted in a compact chamber 12m^2 in size, with a ceiling fan to circulate the air and one sensor inside the room measuring air quality. For more representative testing, Dyson’s POLAR test is based on a larger room size of 27m^2 with no added fan and uses eight sensors in the corners of the room and one sensor in the centre to collect air quality data.
The Indoor Generation
Every day, humans breathe up to 9,000 litres of air, and even prior to 2020 spent as much as 90% of their time indoors. As our homes increasingly become spaces where we work and exercise as well as sleep and play, the quality of the air we breathe in all aspects of our routine is non-negotiable.
There are a number of indoor pollution sources, which release pollutants like PM10, PM2.5, VOCs, NO2 and formaldehyde into the air. Sources of pollution are present in all aspects of our daily lives, whether that be PM2.5 emitted when cooking, VOCs released from cleaning products or the continuous off-gassing of formaldehyde from our living room furniture.
Precise formaldehyde sensing and destruction
In addition to the existing particle, NO2, VOCs, temperature and humidity sensors, the integration of an intelligent formaldehyde sensor ensures precise sensing of the pollutant for the lifetime of the machine. Formaldehyde sensors can be gel-based and may deteriorate gradually as they dry out over time. Using an electrochemical cell, the Dyson formaldehyde sensor does not dry out and its unique intelligent algorithm cross-checks data every second, selectively sensing to avoid confusion with other VOCs.
Full-machine HEPA filtration
In Dyson’s new purifiers, it’s not just the filter that meets HEPA H13 standard, but the whole machine. It captures the H1N1 virus and 99.95% of particles as small as 0.1 microns such as allergens, bacteria, pollen and mould spores. Dyson engineers took a forensic approach to achieve a fully-sealed machine, creating high-pressure seals at an additional 24 critical points to prevent dirty air from bypassing the filters and carrying pollutants back into the room.
Air Multiplier Technology
Using Dyson Air Multiplier Technology, the machine can project purified air to every corner of the room. The auto mode enables the machine to maintain a preferred room temperate and air quality levels, while the machine can be entirely controlled by the Dyson Link App and activated by voice control.
