Auto air purifier removes up to 90% of airborne pollen

by | Apr 4, 2024 | 0 comments

Lumileds offers the Philips GoPure GP5212 Automotive Air Purifier for drivers and families who suffer from seasonal allergies. Powerful, compact, and simple to use, GoPure GP5212 effectively filters out airborne allergens including pollen and mould that can pass through the cabin filters typically found in passenger vehicles. Standard cabin air filters typically trap particulates in the 5-100 micron range while the Philips GoPure GP5212 can filter particles as small as .015 microns, including allergens, viruses, and bacteria, as well as toxic gases. The advanced filter on the GoPure GP5212 helps trap more pollen, keeping it out of the eyes and airways of the vehicle passengers.

“The new Phillips GoPure GP5212 car air purifier meets a growing demand for clean air solutions,” noted Aubry Baugh, Lumileds Sr. Manager, Aftermarket Marketing Leader, NA. “As spring rolls around and pollen counts creep higher, drivers see and feel the real impact of pollen, especially those with seasonal allergies. In heavily pollenated areas, drivers can find their entire vehicle interior coated with a thin layer, making it harder to breathe and even see the road due to watery, itchy eyes. The GoPure GP5212 truly helps users drive more safely and comfortably.”

Exceptional Clean Air Delivery Rate

The GP5212’s SelectFilter Plus filtration technology removes 90% of airborne pollen, and a standard sedan or SUV can be 50% filtered in just 10 minutes.* The GoPure GP5212 quickly removes up to 100 different types of pollutants and microbes, while neutralizing unpleasant odours in the vehicle. Its compact design makes it easy to deploy anywhere in the vehicle. It is designed to hang from seat backs, slide under seats, or be strapped to the console armrest.

The Philips GoPure GP5212 provides an exceptional Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) of 16 m3/hour for particulate matter down to 2.5 microns (PM2.5). The advanced filter technology removes harmful NO2/SO2 fumes and toxic gases from road traffic that can be brought into the cabin by the vehicle’s ventilation. By treating nitrogen dioxide (NO2) at a CADR of 13 mper hour and Sulphur dioxide (SO2) at 7.9 m3 per hour, the GoPure GP5212 reduces the exposure to dangerous levels of air pollution that can be much higher inside the car than outside. 

Philips SelectFilter Plus Technology 

The GoPure GP5212 uses Philips SelectFilter Plus technology that employs a 3-stage filter. The first stage is a pre-filter designed to capture large particles such as pet hair, dust, and airborne dirt. The second stage features a HESA (High Efficiency Sorbent Agent) filter that scrubs out toxic gases and harmful chemicals and uses a powerful absorption and oxidation process to remove smoke, odors, and gases. The final stage employs a HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter that has been shown to remove over 99% of airborne allergens, bacteria, and viruses in laboratory testing. 

The Philips GoPure GP5212 is designed to operate automatically, so the driver can focus on operating the vehicle. When plugged into the vehicle’s USB auxiliary power outlet, the unit turns on and off with the vehicle’s ignition. GoPure GP5212 features a two-speed fan and an indicator light that signals the need for a filter replacement. The GoPure GP5212 has an extremely compact and lightweight footprint of only 7 in. x 7 in. x 2.7 in. and 1.7 lbs. This allows for easy and convenient installation anywhere in the vehicle. GoPure GP5212 comes complete with a hook fastener, armrest and headrest attachment belt, and a 12 ft. 12V power cable. 

Philips GoPure GP5212’s advanced filter technology has been independently certified by the Airmid Healthgroup testing laboratory. *Tested particle 1-pass removal efficiency at 3rd party lab on SelectFilter Plus. Particle removal efficiency is tested according to standard GB/T6165:2008. Actual performance can be influenced by the environment it is used in; the filter does not guarantee 100% removal of particles. Bacterial removal rate tested at 3rd party test laboratory on Staphylococcus Aureus removal rate, according to GB21551.3-2010. Tested according to GB/T18801-2015 in 3 m3 chamber during 20 minutes for PM2.5 and 60 minutes for gases.
