British inventor Sir James Dyson's major claim to fame was the bladeless fan — a project that reached here, as made-in-China clones, long before the original product. Now formally in India, Dyson has launched its Pure Cool air purifier here, having first understood the uniquely Indian challenge of dust, which gives us the dubious distinction according to WHO, of having 14 of the world's 15 worst cities for PM or particulate matter
Available in two models: desktop (Rs 36,900) and floor standing (Rs 43,900), Pure Cool makes the asking price more attractive by combining the functions of a bladeless fan and an air purifier.
An LCD display shows which particles or gas is being sensed — and displays the air quality reading, using lasers to measure ultrafine particles. All air purifiers use High Efficiency Particulate Air HEPA filters. Dyson splits them with activated carbon layers to cover a 360 degree swathe. Their proprietary technology claims to push out 360 litres of purified air every second.
If you don't want the fan function ( in winter), Pure Cool switches to a purifier-only mode, blowing air towards the rear. Breathe easy! Available at Amazon or Dyson.in
