Blueair air purifier filtration

The Blueair 480i uses Blueair’s typical Three-Stage Progressive Filter – a filter that resembles having several filters in one. The filter is made up out of three different levels of millions of super-thin fibres, and with its ‘lock-in’ design, captures and retains particles. The first layers of the filter capture larger particles like pollen and dust and the later layers capture smaller particles like bacteria and exhaust particles.

Regular air purifier filters are thinner and consist of the same fibre size and material throughout. This leads to filters being loaded sooner and either losing efficiency or requiring to be replaced. However, the unique design of the Blueair 480i Three-Stage Progressive Filter requires you to replace the filter only twice a year.

When the filter of the Blueair 480i needs to be replaced, just open the side door, and take out the old filter like you would take a book out of a bookshelf, then simply replace it with a fresh filter. No screws, hooks or tools are needed and replacing the filter only takes a couple of seconds.

The Blueair 480i filters consist of non-toxic polypropylene media that is 100% free of harmful triclosan and glass fibres.
