Its founder, Bengt Rittri, originally had the desire to make the best air purifier. After noticing that it was becoming increasingly difficult to find places with "clean air", he formed a team of researchers to achieve this goal.
Initially aimed at communities and health professionals, BLUEAIR air purifiers are now being used in homes and offices.
Having become one of the major players in indoor air purification in Asia and USA and present in more than 60 countries, the company BLUEAIR is finally acquired by Unilever in 2016.
Today, BLUEAIR markets a wide range of air purifiers and accessories related to indoor air treatment. It has received numerous awards, such as the Testfakta, the gold medal "Best of the Best", and the "Best in Category" of the HouseWares Design Awards 2018. Its appliances are also recognized by environmental protection agencies such as Energy Star and allergy research laboratories such as ECARF.
Blueair filters and their characteristics:
HEPASilent™ filters are less dense than most other filters on the market.
Why are Blueair air purifiers unique?
- The combination of electrostatic and mechanical filtration ensures a high CADR (= air filtration rate)
- Blueair air purifiers are silent
- They consume little energy (HEPASilent™ Technology)
The classification of the filter is therefore not relevant on its own. Filtration efficiency is determined by the filter technology.
Therefore, Blueair filters do not meet the usual HEPA13 or HEPA14 classification.
However, they are effective on particles with a diameter greater than or equal to 0.1 microns.
