Dyson’s latest air purifier can now sense and destroy formaldehyde

Dyson just announced a new line of air purification machines with new solid-state formaldehyde sensing technology. Apart from the new solid-state formaldehyde sensing, the new Dyson Purifier Formaldehyde also has a sealed HEPA 13 standard and 20% quieter.

But what exactly is Formaldehyde and why is it important enough for Dyson to include it in the new machine update? From Dyson’s press release (but feel free to do the research on your own):

“Formaldehyde is a colourless gas pollutant, released by furniture and wooden products containing formaldehyde-based resins like plywood and fibreboard, insulating materials and products such as paint, wallpapers, varnishes and household cleaning products”.

The particles are 500 times smaller than particles the size of 0.1 microns, which makes most air purifier machines difficult to detect and trap within the filtration module. With Dyson’s new sensor and algorithm, the machine can precisely monitor formaldehyde levels and intelligently ignores other gases that are detected by the VOC sensor.

Living in a house while there are still many development happening around our area, it’s an excellent machine to purify the air inside our house.

The new sealed HEPA 13 filtration blocks any potential leak points through which dirty air might enter and be able to remove 99.95% of particles as small as 0.1 microns.

If you are the type who like to run an air purifier through the night, you’ll also appreciate the quieter-running machine.

The new Dyson Air Purifier machines with Formaldehyde sensing are the Dyson HEPA Cool Formaldehyde (without a heater function) which retails for AU$799 and the Dyson Purifier Hot+Cool Formaldehyde which retails for AU$999.

The Dyson Purifier Formaldehyde range will be available in Australia from Thursday 27 May 2021 at Dyson.com.au and retailers including Harvey Norman, The Good Guys, JB Hi-Fi, Bing Lee, Myer, and David Jones.
