Samsung’s new smart air purifiers – AX46 and AX32
The new AX46 and AX32 series of Samsung air purifiers feature one-touch controls to remove 99.97% of nanoparticles, ultra-fine dust, bacteria and allergens.
They also clean the air of potentially dangerous volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including formaldehyde.
The SmartThings App enables consumers to control air purifiers remotely. And, you can check the air quality and control other functions of the air purifier from your smartphone anytime, anywhere.
The latest air purifiers can remove gas, dust, chemicals and all kinds of odors, with cutting-edge purification capabilities, including front intake and three-way airflow. The front air intakes are designed to take in air with ease. The air then goes through a purification process where the powered fan uses its 3-way airflow to distribute the clean air in multiple directions.
In addition, the new series features a multi-layer high-efficiency purification system that removes ultra-fine dust. The system includes a washable pre-filter that extracts larger dust particles, an activated carbon deodorizing filter that then removes harmful gases, and a dust collection filter that captures up to 99.97% of ultra-fine dust.
The AX46 model features a digital easy view display and a laser PM 1.0 sensor. The sensor monitors air quality in real time and identifies gaseous pollutants. Users can see the results on the display showing the level of PM 1.0/2.5/10 pollutants and the overall air quality level with a 4-color indicator.
The Samsung AX32 series starts at Rs 12,990 and the AX46 model starts at Rs 32,990.
