LG Electronics (LG) recently announced the launch of the upgraded PuriCare™ 360° with Safe Plus Filter™, bringing the next-level air purification to more homes. This new LG PuriCare™ 360° with Safe Plus Filter™ boasts a unique 360 degree air filtration system on top of not one, but two cutting-edge filters, making them now even better at providing fresh and clean air throughout the entire home.
The LG PuriCare™ 360° is known for its unmatched effectiveness and remarkable 360 degree design, it refreshes and revitalises air around the whole room. With its distinctive cylindrical shape, this provides a crucial part of its purifying performance and effectiveness. The solution sends filtered air as far as 7.5 meters using its Clean Booster feature (1), which rises from the top of the device and rotates left and right to eliminate all blind spots and achieve fresh air coverage.
The PuriCare™ device employs Safe Plus Filter (HEPA) and Deodorization Filter to achieve its comprehensive multi-filtration system that effortlessly eliminates bacteria, viruses, ultra-fine dust, allergens and harmful gases. The newly added Safe Plus Filter is 99.9 percent anti-bacterial (2) and anti-viral (3), and removes 99.999 percent of ultra-fine dust particles as small as 0.01 micrometres (4) and allergens. This further adds to the impressive performance of its Deodorization Filter, which captures harmful gases lurking in the air such as odours, smog and chemicals (5). Ionizer is another innovation being utilized to remove harmful airborne viruses and bacteria, surrounding the substances with Ion clusters to form a chemical reaction that produces water (H2O) and nothing else (6).
“With its groundbreaking 360-degree design, our latest LG PuriCare™ model makes every home a safer and more comfortable place to be through the constant supply of clean, purified air,” said Justin Seong, Product Director of LG Electronics (Singapore) Air Solutions. “As a global leader in air solutions, we will continue to develop home appliances with all the latest purification and filtration technologies to deliver better living environments to families in Singapore.”
