Here’s how Puri 5 Works:

Puri 5 is a 5-stage filtration process that cleans the air and kills almost every pollutant present in the surrounding area. This process involves drawing air from a given space, such as a living room into the unit and then making it pass through five filtering devices within the unit. After which, the air is recycled and released into the room as clean or purified air.

  • Pre-filter captures large household dirt such as hair strands etc., increasing the lifespan of advanced purification filters.
  • True HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter is over 99.985% efficient in trapping all allergens and airborne contaminants down to 0.3 micron in size such as lung damaging dust, pet dander etc. It filters 8 times smaller particles than PM2.5.
  • Activated Carbon filter freshens the air by removing all kinds of odours and harmful gases from your living space.
  • UV Lamp eliminates mold spores, bacteria, viruses, and pollen spores that may be circulating in your home.
  • Refreshing Energizers or negative ions exist in natural surroundings such as waterfalls or forests. They are generated when water jet cuts through the air. Moonbow air purifiers release negative ions that improve the air quality by combining with dust or reacting with odor molecules.

    Formaldehyde filter* filters small particles that slip through a pre-filter and reduces formaldehyde present in air.
