China’s first 3D printing air purifier eases record-breaking air pollution levels
In December 2015, air pollution in Northeast China reached record highs, and Beijing issued a warning twice. Chinese residents had to wear gas masks and lock up their children in the house. Try to protect them from the health hazards associated with the dense, dense smog that invades the land: the biggest threat is PM2.5, a tiny airborne particle that can be produced by inhalation of heart disease, even cancer, PM2.5 has reached levels 40 times higher than what the World Health Organization believes is safe.

Although there is no immediate solution to China’s air pollution crisis, there is an immediate need for clean, breathable air, and a Ninja-based company offers a solution using 3D printing technology. Ninja Automation Technology has developed one of the first cost-effective 3D compressed air cleaners that can simultaneously clean up to 20 square meters.
China’s air purifiers can absorb and convert various types of air pollutants, including allergens, dust, pollen, bacteria, chemicals such as formaldehyde, and even harmful particles of PM2.5. Remains quite expensive as some commercial air purifiers in the Chinese market sell more than 1,000 yuan (about 150 USD). By comparison, the cost of manufacturing the Ninjang 3D Air Purifier, which is said to be comparable to industrial models, is no more than 300 yuan or $ 45.
“Making an air purifier at home is not difficult, because I can model my own design, I asked why I did not use the lowest cost to make a high-quality air purifier.” Said Li JiaYu, one of the printers in 3D Purifier Developers.
The company used 3D printing technology as well as a laser cutting process to create the best internal structure and the largest shell of the air purifier about 30 cm, consists of a fan that conveys unfiltered and polluted air into the cavity. The cavity itself contains multi-mesh partitions, a dust net, a non-woven fabric, an activated carbon plate, HEPA filters and electrostatic filter papers that capture and remove as many toxins and pollutants from the water as possible. as much as possible. It also has a 360-degree air intake design, highly efficient PSC engines, and three different air cleaning speeds.
The new air purifier can also be printed in 3D within two days, and the air purification effect is simple. The modification of the internal cavity, which means that the 3D printed air purifier can be adjusted and used in many cases in northeastern China and in other areas that urgently require clean air, is enhanced by being pure and breathable.
Previously, we also looked at Sendinaden’s 3D-printed face mask, which also addressed stressed and vulnerable urbanites, but was not a permanent solution to China’s smog and air pollution problems around the world. Significant relief in these dark days for the environment.
