Purolator has announced that it will be highlighting its BreatheEasy cabin air filters at AAPEX 2012, Oct. 30-Nov. 1 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nev.
“Many motorists may not be aware that most vehicles 2001 or newer, are equipped with a ‘cabin air filter,’ whose function is to help keep the air inside a car free of annoying and unhealthy particulates,” said Chuck Kerrigan, director, Regional Business Unit for Purolator, supplier of BreatheEasy cabin air filters to the North American aftermarket.
Purolator says its BreatheEasy cabin air filters feature specially engineered media that can capture and hold even the finest particles of contaminants such as dust, soot, pollen, fungus and bacteria. These filters are electrostatically charged, similar to many household HVAC filters, to ensure that particles stay attached to the filter.
Purolator also makes available its BreatheEasy cabin air filters with an activated charcoal layer that offers all of the features of a particulate filter, but goes a step further. Its additional layer of charcoal helps it adsorb toxic and foul-smelling gases like sulfur dioxide, keeping odors out of the car’s cabin.
