The new Dyson Purifier Big+Quiet Formaldehyde takes indoor purification even further
Dyson has taken a “go big or go home” approach with the Dyson Purifier Big+Quiet Formaldehyde which can offer indoor purification in much larger rooms in your home.
The Dyson Purifier Big+Quiet Formaldehyde has double the airflow of previous models at up to 87 litres per second of purified air that can be projected more than 10m away from the unit.
Dyson has always been educating customers about the need for cleaner air in our indoor spaces for our health and wellbeing.
“Poor indoor air quality is a much-ignored, growing issue. Our home environments can be filled with particle and gas pollution, be it pollen, pet dander, NO2, CO2, VOCs from cleaning products and more,” says Matt Jennings, Dyson Engineering Director – Environmental Care.
“Each of these particles can contribute to an unhealthy environment, causing potential health concerns.
“The Dyson Purifier Big+Quiet Formaldehyde is our first purifier specifically engineered to purify properly in spaces up to 100 square metres.
“It blends highly effective filtration and powerful projection, with intelligence, to automatically respond to imperceptible pollution events.
“With new Cone Aerodynamics to project purified air over 10m, the Dyson
Purifier Big+Quiet Formaldehyde can reach every corner of your living space.”
Dyson’s new cone aerodynamics uses the Coanda effect to combine two streams of air over a smooth surface with enough power to be sent more than 10 metres and with minimal noise.
This is double the air flow of the previous generation.
Dyson engineers have also come up with Breeze Mode which uses an algorithm to control the jet of air to oscillate in a motion that imitates a natural breeze.
The Dyson Purifier Big+Quiet Formaldehyde has a three phase filtration process so it can rid your home of indoor air pollution that could include tobacco smoke, household cleaning products, building materials and outdoor air that may enter your home.
On top of that the unit can address other pollutants from within your household including formaldehyde, VOCS, NO2 and ozone.
The product has a sealed system that ensures only clean air is projected back into the room after it has been filtered.
The three filtration layers include the HEPA H13-grade particle filter which includes borosilicate microfibre that’s been pleated 459 times which, when unfolded, makes it 3.8 times larger than the previous model and the equivalent area of two king size beds.
Also on board is the new UK carbon filter which combats NO2 which can be produced from things like cooking or brought in from the outside. This filter also captures benzene and household odours.
The third filter is the Dyson Selective Catalytic Oxidation filter which is made up of billions of atom-sized tunnels which can breakdown formaldehyde molecules into water and CO2 before regenerating them with oxygen from the air.
The Dyson Purifier Big+Quiet Formaldehyde is a decent sized unit, but it can be used at full speed without generating much noise.
Onboard is the Broadband Helmholtz silencer which is cavity shaped to trap sound energy and dissipate the noise.
It also has a labyrinth seal to control air circulation and reduced noisy swirls in the recycling air while the motor has been soft mounted within the compressor to minimise noise and vibrations.
The Dyson Purifier Big+Quiet Formaldehyde has a range of integrated sensors that can monitor particle gas and formaldehyde levels so it could maintain your indoor air quality and even show you live results on the product’s LCD screen and within the MyDyson app.
A CO2 sensor has been incorporated for the first time with high levels indoors having the potential to affect our health and well-being.
The sensor can accurately report when CO2 levels go above recommended levels and prevent you from breathing in that stale air.
Usually a product like this will be tested in a small chamber of 12 square metres with one sensor.
But this time Dyson created a 100 square metre test chamber at its Hullavington campus and equipped it with 36 sensors to measure the Dyson Purifier Big+Quiet Formaldehyde’s ability to claim the equivalent of a large open plan living space.
This testing proved the unit could perform optimally in a real world setting.
The Dyson Purifier Big+Quiet Formaldehyde is available now in Bright Nickel Satin/Dark Blue and is priced at $1,499.
The Dyson exclusive model in Satin Dark Blue/Gold is priced at $1,599.
Dyson has also updated its range of purifiers to suit all room types and introduced three new purifiers – the Dyson Purifier Cool Gen 1, the Dyson Purifier Hot+Cool Gen 1 and the Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde.
