Unique Blueair HEPASilent Technology

The Blueair 480i uses Blueair HEPASilent Technology to remove virtually all airborne pollutants. Using the best in electrostatic and mechanical filtration, our HEPASilent Technology is a revolutionary combination of advanced filter media and an encapsulated particle-charging chamber.

This ensures that your new Blueair Classic air purifier delivers results far superior than either mechanical or electrostatic technology alone.

Activated carbon captures gases and odors

Blueair SmokeStop filters have a highly porous structure made of activated carbon to trap gases and odors.

Naturally Antibacterial

The naturally antibacterial polypropylene fibers in Blueair filters prevent bacteria and mold growth, so our filters never put bacteria and mold back into the air.

Traps particles for good

The gradient structure of Blueair filters traps particles of all sizes while maintaining maximum airflow. It resists clogging and won't re-release particles back into the air, even when the filter is heavily loaded.

Blueair filter media is ultrasonically bonded to prevent filter fibers and other particles from being added back into your environment. The only thing that comes out of our filters is clean air!

Particle Progressive three-stage filter technology

Air is drawn into the air purifier at the rear, passes through the filter and leaves through the exhaust grill at the top. Filtered air leaving the exhaust grill is charged with negative ions.

The ions collide with and charge airborne particles in the room. When air is drawn into the unit again, the HEPASilent filter traps the charged particles

Which Blueair model is right for me?

All Blueair Air Purifiers in the range clean to the same standard, so one model is not better than the other. When selecting a Blueair model you do so based on the rated room size capacity and the features it has (eg Manual Control, Automatic, Wifi etc

The Blueair Range is broken down into 3 Series:

  • 200 Series - 205

    - suitable for smaller rooms or bedrooms

  • 400 Series - 480i

    - suitable for lounge rooms or larger rooms

  • 600 Series - 680i

    - suitable for larger open plan living spaces

What does "True HEPA" Mean?

To conform to the HEPA standard an air purifier and their filters need to capture up to 99.97 percent of particles as small as 0.3 microns.

The "True" is just a marketing term some manufacturers use - if a filter conforms to HEPA standard it is deemed a "True" HEPA filter.

Blueair filters not only meet the HEPA standard, but exceed it. Blueair filters clean down to a much smaller 0.1 particle vs 0.3 microns minimum HEPA standard.

Provided clean air, while blanketed with bushfire smoke.
Like some reviewers, I did find setting the wi-fi/app connection a bit tricky and fiddly, but once I was able to establish the connection (took about 10 mins to get the machine to respond and register that I was pushing the buttons as per the manual) the machine as been a dream. I brought a blueair machine because I was worried about the smoke blanketing Sydney, day in day out since November, and boy am I glad I did. My machine arrived the day before the smoke really hit hard (setting off building smoke alarms) in early December. I left my office early and went straight home and enjoyed much cleaner air than I would have if I stayed at work. I was also able to relieve my asthma symptoms by just being at home with the machine. Managed to get our inside air to excellent levels that day, while outside was highly polluted. I will be buying a second machine when they're back in stock. I appreciate that I'm in a highly privileged position to be able to buy this machine (it's not an insignificant amount of money), but I really encourage anyone on the fence trying to decide if it's worth it, to spend the money this machine if they are concerned about their health and in a position to do so. I really don't think you will regret it. (Posted on )

I'm now waking up with a clear nose!
I'm amazed by the results I'm getting from this great machine. Usually I wake up in the mornings with nasal congestion, but with this air filter I have been finding that I've been waking up with a completely clear nose and I am feeling more rested for it. Also, with all the bushfires in NSW at the moment, when I leave my room in the morning only then do I notice the smell of bushfire smoke in the house. So the smoke filter which came with my unit seems to be doing a great job.

I'm very happy with this purchase and also with the prompt and helpful responses from Sleep Solutions. (Posted on )
