Luftonic LC8 is the state of art filtration technology. It has been researched and studied over the past twenty years by many renowned scientists and researchers. It is capable of:
A. Filtering ultra-fine particles down to 0.001μm: far beyond 0.3microns of traditional HEPA;
B. Destroys and Collects: The high electrical field inside Luftonic kills all bacteria and viruses, which is different from HEPA with mold/bacteria growing on filters;
C. Non-consumable collecting plates: simply wash and reuse! No more spending on expensive HEPA filters;
D. Quiet operation: Luftonic is whisper quiet during sleep mode as its collecting plates have much lower flow resistance as compared with HEPA filters;
E. Environmental green and energy saving solutions.
The human body can only prevent larger particles > 10μm (micrometre); smaller particles can break the guard and enter the body, even depositing on the vascular walls. So it is much more important to have ultra-fine particles eliminated. Luftonic LC8 deals successfully with ultra-fine particles >0.001μm (nanometre) and purifies the air by killing bacteria/viruses and collecting airborne particles. Traditional HEPA air purifiers only filtrate particles > 0.3μm and leave all kinds of particles on the filters. Luftonic LC8 avoids mildew and bacteria problem perfectly while traditional air purifiers could cause secondary pollution by sending out air with mold/bacteria still stored in the machine! All kinds of particles accumulate on a HEPA, actually turning the filter into a warm bed for bacteria and mold with suitable temperature and humidity! Most HEPA’s performance will diminish over time.
Yes, Luftonic LC8 can decompose many volatile gases (Formaldehyde, Benzene etc.) into natural air ingredients such as CO2 and H2O. It is achieved by two principles: the high voltage electrical field generates strong plasma and hydro-radical cells, which acts as strong oxidation agents to decompose the carbon bond of volatile gases.
Luftonic LC8 is built around a Safety 1st motto! We have implemented the following:
A. Smart control: The “smart electronics” control circuit continually monitors the current and voltage levels, and suppresses them whenever there’s any abnormal situation;
B. Anti-fire: Luftonic LC8 is manufactured with the highest V0-grade fire retardant housing;
C. Child lock: It prevents improper operations when children are playing around it;
D. International reputable third-party verification: Luftonic LC8 has passed safety test requirements including but not limited to CE, FCC, CQC etc.
Luftonic LC8 uses an advanced electronic design built around safety. The power consumption of Luftonic is equivalent to a small light bulb. It has high voltage inside but very low current in the order of micro-amps. The high voltage runs on direct current to avoid any possible electronic perturbation.
We designed and manufactured Luftonic LC8 complying to Energy Star Rating. We are on our way to obtaining the certificate. Luftonic LC8 is an Eco-friendly product because it uses non-consumable collecting plates instead of producing fiberglass waste, which is the main material of HEPA, and others.
Luftonic LC8 is a cost effective and environmental green solution. Collecting plates in Luftonic LC 8 is washable and reusable, so no more spending on HEPA filters and others.
Air Quality Index Display
The best part of Luftonic LC8 air purifier is that you could see the effect by your own eyes! You will notice the AQI (Air Quality Index) number decreasing when the air purifier is on. Also, after using Luftonic LC8 for a week, you can actually see many of the pollutants absorbed on the collecting plates when you take the plates out of Luftonic LC8 to clean.
The occasional “zapping” or “cracking” is normal when the bigger particles enter the air purifier, being zapped by the high voltage, similar to when a bug zapper traps a bug. However, if the “cracking” or “zapping” noise is constant, you should clean the unit and make sure that all parts in the unit are fully dried after you clean the unit. 80% of the noise issues are caused by dust accumulation on the collecting plates and/or inner chamber, or by wet collecting plates. Normally a full clean cycle will take care of this all.
Please put the collecting plates in a dry space for at least 24 hours. You may put tissues or a paper towel under the collecting plates to check if it is fully dried.
