AIRMEGA 400 FILTER SPECIFICATIONS
AIRMEGA MAX2 FILTERAirmega’s MAX2 filter is a composite filter. In other words the TRUE HEPA and the activated carbon filters fuse together into a single unit. All Coway Air purifiers use a Green True HEPA filter which has special antiviral and antibacterial coating which lends its green color to it. Together with the activated carbon filter this filter combine can filter out over 99.97% of 0.3 micron sized particles and above. Coway Airmega air purifiers use a high quality honeycomb design carbon filter. The MAX2 filter reeks of high quality. Although quality is not quantifiable but it certainly is palpable. The activated carbon stage is designated the job of removing harmful gases and odors from the air. The indoors are usually more polluted than the outdoors in terms of gaseous pollutants. Our varnished furnitures, cooking jobs in the kitchen, smoking cigarettes and freshly painted wall etc. are sources of organic gases. Gases like ammonia, formaldehyde, benzene and toluene are cancerous and should be removed at all costs. The activated carbon is renowned for adsorbing all sorts of gaseous pollutants and odors. So, the HEPA filter and carbon filter work in tandem and supplement the air cleaning process.
PRE-FILTERThanks to the Airmega pre-filter a lot of larger dust and dirt is arrested on it. Without letting hairs, lint and dirt reach the MAX2 filter and clogging it beyond recognition, the pre-filter is definitely a useful addition. It is made of super fine fabric mesh. If your pre-filter is choked then its not hard to imagine that the air purifier’s airflow would be hindered. Hence, it is recommended to clean it under tap or vacuum cleaning it frequently. Should you forget cleaning it, the Airmega doesn’t let its maintenance go unnoticed. The Pre Wash sign on the Indicator lights up when its cleaning time. In Airmega 400 and 400S models, all along the perimeter of this Pre Wash Indicator button, there’s another LED ring. This ring is segmented into 5 sectors each denoting 20% filter usage. When all the sectors fill up, the red Wash indicator glows.
AIRMEGA 400 FILTER MAINTENANCEYour Coway Airmega 400 has 2 filters so they need double the attention. A dirty filter is of no good as it would put your as well as the air purifier’s health at risk. The Airmega has indicators to let you know to take up filter maintenance.
MAX2 FILTER INDICATORThe MAX2 Change indicator tells you when the two Max2 filters need to be replaced. This indication is based on how much air they have processed. If you own an Airmega 300S or 400S, then the IoCare App also indicates the filter life remaining in percentages.
PRE-FILTER INDICATORThe pre-filters do not need replacement in the normal scenario. A dedicated indicator informs you of the impending cleaning job for your Coway Airmega pre-filters. You must frequently clean the pre-filter even if the indicator is yet to light up for maximum efficiency. To clean the pre-filter you can wash it under running water. Even vacuum cleaning it would do. After cleaning or replacing the filters, make sure to reset the filter indicator on the control panel.
