Now you can offer a more effective, more comfortable solution to in-cabin air quality. Our fully integrated, OEM–approved air purification system removes up to 99% of harmful particles in a single pass. And, since it doesn’t need recirculation mode to work, it is effective without building up levels of drowsiness-causing CO2.
A constant flow of fresh air also means that common gases such as formaldehyde and other VOCs are continuously flushed out and replaced with fresh air.
Our system, based on the same Blueair technology proven in millions of homes, offices and public spaces around the world, combines the effect of an optimized mechanical filter with particle charging technology. This combination is what makes the system so effective. And it is especially effective against the very small and ultrafine particles that are the most harmful to health.
For particles > 1 µm, the filtration force is mostly mechanical, whereas particles < 1 µm are removed with electrostatic forces. Therefore, we actively charge the particles in combination with high mechanical filtration.
When the charged particles approach the filter, the electrostatic potential between particle and fibre increase the probability for the particle to be collected by the filter. This will improve the filtration efficiency without affecting the pressure drop of the system.
It is a solution whose time has come: A staggering 72% of Chinese consumers are worried about the impact air quality inside their cars has on themselves and their families. The same number, 72% of people asked, also said that they are aware of the negative health effects of breathing polluted air*.
The particle charging unit is typically placed in the air intake system between the first environmental protection and the cabin air filter. The system is designed to handle all external environmental elements, such as water, extreme temperature difference, dirt, etc.
It must be located before the cabin air filter to enable electrostatic charge of particle matter before it is collected by the filter.
The unit is powered with DC 12V and may be controlled by a vehicle’s climate control module (CCM) using Local Interconnect Communication (LIN).
Premium automobile manufacturers are already seeing the competitive advantage the CabinAir Active Air Quality Solution gives them. It is currently available in Volvo Cars 60 and 90 models globally, named as Active Air Cleaning (AAC), a core element of Volvo’s CLEANZONE®.
