A HEPA filter is designed to capture bacteria, viruses, mold and dust, as well as pollen, pet hair and dander. That’s why it represents the heart of the air filtration process.
Smaller contaminants that make their way through the pre-filter can be caught in this filter. In a Daikin room air purifier, the HEPA filter can remove up to 99.97 percent of airborne particles as small as 0.1 microns.
As a comparison, a grain of fine sand is approximately 62 microns. So, it’s easy to understand the small-particle, air-cleansing power of the HEPA filter in a Daikin room air purifier. The accordion shape of the filter also adds to the capture process.
