Philips Introduces GoPure Automotive Air Purifier

The GoPure GP5611 is designed to clean air quickly and efficiently to reduce the transmission of airborne viruses, bacteria and allergens.

Lumileds has introduced the Philips GoPure GP5611 automotive air purifier, designed to clean air quickly and efficiently to reduce the transmission of airborne viruses, bacteria and allergens.

Designed to fit in most vehicle cup holders, the USB-powered GP5611 filters the cabin air with three technologies: a Philips SaniFilter Plus filter, a HESAMax filtration cartridge and a powerful UVC light, according to Lumileds.  

The Philips SaniFilter Plus filter captures bacteria and respiratory viruses as well as airborne allergens including pollen, dust mites, mold spores and pet dander. It features an anti-microbial layer to inhibit the growth of microorganisms inside the device, including mold spores.

The SaniFilter Plus filter has been tested at IUTA laboratory in Germany and proven to capture 99% of ultra-fine particles, including particles as small as 0.004 microns that can get deep into the lungs and create serious health risks, according to Lumileds.

The Philips HESAMax cartridge (high-efficiency sorbent agent) removes chemicals, harmful gases and unpleasant odors from the car, including formaldehyde, toluene and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The cartridge contains two types of HESA material: white beads that draw formaldehyde from the air, break it down and safely lock it within the cartridge; and black carbon beads that absorb unpleasant smells.

For an added layer of protection, bacteria and viruses trapped in the GP5611 filters are killed by exposing them to ultraviolet light, according to Lumileds. UVC light has been used for sterilization in hospitals, hotels and public transportation for decades.

Lumileds noted that the GoPure GP5611 UVC LED technology emits zero ozone.

“The GoPure GP5611 is powerful enough to filter all the air in an average passenger vehicle in about 10 minutes, and since it fits in most vehicle cup holders, you can be up and running in less than a minute,” said Aubry Baugh, Lumileds senior manager, aftermarket marketing leader, NA.

In typical use, the SaniFilter Plus and HESAMax filters only need to be replaced about once a year. The UVC LED module will last for the lifetime of the device, according to the company.
