Want to know more about Oransi Mod Air Purifier?
Here are its features.
The Oransi Mod Air Purifier has a cylindrical shape with a low profile exterior. Its dimensions are as follows: 25 by 14 inches. As such, it doesn’t take much space. As a floor model, it has a stylish base that ensures the unit’s stability.
When it comes to controls, they are easy to use. The glass interface is on top of the unit and allows users to customize the unit’s settings at the touch of a button. For example, if you want to change the fan speed, all you need to do is slide your fingertip across the speed control dial.
If you slide your fingertip to the left, the control will lower the fan speed, and if you slide towards the right, fan speed will increase. You need to know that the unit has an energy-efficient and long-lasting EC motor. As such, it’ll take a few seconds for the fan to change speed.
You also have a power button and filter replacement indicator icon. To turn on/off the unit, press the power button once. At 4500 hours of usage, the filter indicator will illuminate red. Once you change the filter, it should reset itself.
It comes with an integrated handle that’s orange in color. Not only can you use the handle to move the unit from room to room. But it eliminates the need to touch a dirty filter. Like other cylindrical air purifiers, this model has a 360-degree air intake and outlet.
The air intake is at the bottom, while the outlet is at the top of the unit. The bottom to top airflow concept allows the unit to clean more air and distribute clean air evenly in the room.
Multi-stage Filtration System
As the perfect choice for removing airborne pollutants, it has a 3-stage filtration system. The filters include a pre-filter, a True HEPA filter, and an activated carbon filter.
The pre-filter traps large particles such as dust, pet fur, hair, and lint. It also helps to extend the life of the True HEPA filter and carbon filter. The next line of defense is the MERV 17 True HEPA filter.
Made from fibrous media, it traps fine particles that can wreak havoc on your health. These pollutants include pollen, allergens, mold spores, and fine dust. The HEPA filter can trap 99.97% of contaminants as small as 0.3 microns.
Lastly, we have a layer of activated carbon. Composed of granular carbon, the layer absorbs odors from cooking and pets. It also absorbs VOCs, chemicals, and gases. You need to know that the filters have a lifespan of 6 to 12 months.
Replacing the filters is easy. Unplug the unit, place it upside down on a surface like a carpet or a rug. This helps to prevent scratches. To unlock, move the slide switch to the right. Turn the metal base counterclockwise.
This will loosen the metal base. Remove the base and pull the handle to remove the used filter. Make sure you bought the correct filter. Insert the new filter with the rubber seal facing in.
Twist the handle to ensure the new filter is fully seated inside the unit. Reassemble the unit, press and hold the filter reset button for 3 seconds. The light should turn off. Plug the unit, power it on, and continue enjoying clean air.
Remember, the unit has a safety feature that turns the power off if the cover and filter are not correctly placed.

The fan speed is variable between 97 to 338 cfm. At the lowest fan speed, the sound level of the unit is 20 dB. This is lower than a whisper and rustling leaves at 25 dB. The whisper-quiet sound level has a calming effect. In fact, it acts as white noise. This helps to drown surrounding noises and ensures sound sleep.
At the highest fan speed, the unit’s sound level is 60dB. This is higher than the average home noise at 20 dB but equivalent to a normal conversation at 60 dB. The reason why the unit is so quiet is that it comes with the latest Japanese engineered EC motor. This motor is not only whisper-quiet, but it uses up to 90% less energy.
The unit is Energy Star certified. When it runs at the highest fan speed, it consumes 77 W.
