The Elpida One air purifier is based on the photocatalytic method of air purification. Under the influence of UV rays a special substance (photocatalyst) is able to cause chemical reactions. As a result, dangerous pollutants entering the filter decompose into harmless (CO2, H20, O2, CnHm). It is important that organic air pollutants do not accumulate on the filters of the device.
The air enters the cleaner, and the harmful particles it contains get on the filter with the catalytic converter. UV rays are directed to this area and titanium dioxide activates oxidation processes on the surface. As a result of this reaction, the particles decompose into safe gases and water, for example. Water evaporates as it dries and the gas immediately - no dirt is accumulated in the cleaners.
