Dyson launches air purifier with new sensors to destroy formaldehyde

With most of us spending more time indoors due to the pandemic, having healthy air to breathe is more important than ever before. Now, Dyson has launched the Purifier Cool Formaldehyde – a new air purifier with sensing technology to destroy most allergens including formaldehyde.

Formaldehyde is a colourless gas pollutant, released by furniture and wooden products containing formaldehyde-based resins like plywood and fibreboard, which are materials popular in Singapore homes.

While other gel-based formaldehyde sensors can deteriorate over time and are easily confused with other gas pollutants, Dyson says its solid-state formaldehyde sensor coupled with unique algorithms can precisely monitor formaldehyde levels and thus destroy the pollutants more efficiently.

In addition, the new air purifier is said to capture H1N1 virus as well as 99.95 per cent of particles as small as 0.1 microns such as allergens, bacteria, pollen and mould spores.

You might be pleased to know that Dyson claims this new machine is also 20 per cent quieter than its predecessors. So, you can sleep well while breathing purified cool air.

Available in two colour combos of white/gold and nickel/gold, the Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde is available now in Singapore (on Dyson Online, Lazada and Shopee) for S$999.
