New Blueair air purifier cleans the air in your vehicle in six minutes
Blueair is launching a new intelligent air purifier to keep the air we breathe while inside our vehicles as clean as possible. Designed for safety and tested to global standards, the new app connected Blueair Cabin P2i rids the vehicle of the harmful gases, particles and germs that we are exposed to when on the road.
Research by UK Parliament shows that the air in our vehicles is up to 15 times more polluted than on the road outside. This is due to the direct flow of exhausts from the vehicle being driven, as well other vehicles on the road, and the off-gassing of volatile organic chemicals from materials used in the interior; all within a relatively small volume of enclosed space.
In 2018, scientists at London Metropolitan University revealed that vehicle air-conditioning systems can function as breeding grounds for bacteria. In-vehicle air pollution therefore poses greater risks to human health than outdoor air pollution.
"Drivers and passengers spend, on average, approximately 10 hours?per week inside vehicles where exposure to PM2.5 - the ultrafine particles harmful to human health - can be up to 15 times higher than on the street outside," explains Alexander Provins, director Europe at Blueair. "Particles from tyres and road wear products, in combination with exhaust emissions from the vehicle itself as well as from other vehicles, enter the cabin through ventilation and air-conditioning systems."
To meet the need for clean air in cars, Blueair has expanded its air purification expertise and technology to a new segment. Compact and easy to install, the new Cabin air purifier is based on Blueair's pioneering HEPASilent technology, which filters out at least 99.97% of airborne pollutants such as PM2.5, car exhausts, road wear, smoke, dust, soot, sand, pollen, bacteria and viruses as small as 0.1 micron in size.
Sustainably designed for highest road safety, the Cabin air purifier is available for cars, trucks and other road vehicles.
The Cabin P21 with sensors and auto mode adjusts the fan speed automatically based on laser particle sensor readings to maintain optimal air quality at all times. It also continuously and reassuringly displays air quality via an indicator on its control. Bluetooth connectivity to the Blueair friend app provides updates on the quality of the air on your car.
