Whispure AP450 Portable Room Air Purifier
The Whispure AP450 room air purifier is rated to clean the same size room as the AP510, ( 490 square feet), and uses the same filters. It is a little lighter than the AP510, but has fewer control settings such as sleep mode and control lock.
The AP450 will control airborne dust in a room of 480 square feet, giving nearly five complete air changes an hour, (more for smaller rooms).
The true hepa filter captures 99.7% of dust particles down to a particle size of 0.3 microns. The hepa filter is protected by a cheaper carbon pre-filter that can absorb smells and trap larger particles.
The Whispure AP450 takes in air through the front, and blows cleaned air out of the top, so this unit can be placed hard up against a wall.
