Pledge against pol­lu­tion

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Ruchika Garg

Win­ter has fi­nally hit the Cap­i­tal, and peo­ple are wor­ried that the high pol­lu­tion level can con­vert the de­light­ful fog into harm­ful smog. On World Pol­lu­tion Pre­ven­tion Day to­day, Del­hi­ites are tak­ing a pledge to go eco-friendly, and make the city pol­lu­tion-free.

Mad­huri Sharma, a res­i­dent of Kirti Na­gar says, “This is peak time. We all must come for­ward to res­cue our pre­cious en­vi­ron­ment. My hus­band, kids and I pledge to adopt an eco-friendly life­style. My hus­band and I have started us­ing a bi­cy­cle for our nearby chores, and have de­cided to com­plain to the con­cerned au­thor­ity if we see some­one burn­ing waste in the open.”

Did you just step in­side your house and think: ‘Fi­nally! I’m breath­ing clean air now’? Un­for­tu­nately, you might be wrong. Even in­door air con­tains pol­lu­tants and dis­ease­caus­ing micro­organ­isms. Given the sce­nario, more and more peo­ple are opt­ing for air pu­ri­fiers to rid the air of fine dust, chem­i­cals and high con­cen­trate par­tic­u­late mat­ter (PM).

MAK­ING THE RIGHT CHOICE

Mar­kets are flooded with air pu­ri­fiers, but se­lect­ing the one that matches your needs is im­por­tant. Moon­bow air pu­ri­fiers, launched by the house of HSIL Lim­ited last year, are avail­able in five vari­ants, “As pol­lu­tion lev­els rise at an alarm­ing pace, the qual­ity of breath­able air is rapidly de­grad­ing. Air pu­ri­fiers have be­come a ne­ces­sity and our pu­ri­fiers con­trol pol­lu­tants to keep in­door spa­ces well ven­ti­lated. Pow­ered by Puri 5 tech­nol­ogy, a 5-stage pu­rifi­ca­tion process com­pris­ing of pre fil­ter, true HEPA fil­ter, ac­ti­vated car­bon fil­ter, UV light and re­fresh­ing en­er­gizer, our pu­ri­fiers cap­ture in­door car­cino­genic and ul­tra-fine par­ti­cles,” says Rakesh Kaul, pres­i­dent and chief, con­sumer busi­ness, HSIL Lim­ited.

UTIL­ITY AND FEA­TURES

Air is pulled into the unit, and is passed through five fil­tra­tion de­vices. Fol­low­ing this, pu­ri­fied air is re­leased back into the room. As a re­sult, air­borne pol­lu­tants like dust, smoke, pollen, pet dan­der, mold and mildew spores, bac­te­ria and viruses and other par­tic­u­lates as small as 0.3 mi­crons are re­moved.

HOW HEPA WORKS

The air pu­ri­fiers are pow­ered by True HEPA fil­ters that re­move mi­cro­scopic par­ti­cles from air. They can re­move as much as 99.97% of par­ti­cles big­ger than 0.3 mi­crons. Fur­ther, to cap­ture gases and odours, ac­ti­vated char­coal fil­ter is used in con­junc­tion.

PRICE, POWER, PU­RIFI­CA­TION

These pu­ri­fiers start at `6,990 for a car pu­ri­fier to `12,990 for home air pu­ri­fier. The home range ex­tends to `36,990. These vari­ants con­sume less elec­tric­ity, rang­ing 50W to 70W. Not only do they use less power, but the range is aimed to cater to dif­fer­ent­sized rooms too.
