Filter System of Miele Neptune
The Miele Neptune offers the Miele exclusively designed AirClean Sealed System for its filtration process. The whole system, and each of its individual compartments, is sealed with one continuous, durable rubber gasket. This system prevents air and particular matter from escaping through non-filtered openings.
The design of Miele Neptune combines 3 elements for indoor air quality assurance, i.e., use of the very best of available materials; a unique and electrostatically charged filtering dust bag with an innovative and spring-loaded collar for debris trapping and a high quality filter cartridge selection, including a certified HEPA filter.
Filter Dust Bag
The filtering dust bag of the Miele Neptune is a 3.7 quart, FJM type, AirClean dust bag, with a spring-loaded, self-sealing collar. It is a 9-layer fortress of electrostatically charged material for micro-sized debris trapping in the airtight vacuum chamber. Exposure to tiny, lung-damaging dust and allergens is prevented by the spring-loaded, self locking collar.
The Miele Neptune has a FilterBag change indicator for hygienic bag replacement alert.
The filter cartridge of the Miele Neptune consists of an air clean filter and a pre-motor filter. Designed for normal use, the air clean filter consists of electrostatically charged multi-ply material for dust particle retention. It retains 99.95% of 0.5 micron-sized particles and 94% of 0.3 micron-sized particles. Filter of Miele Neptune change is necessary only after a 5 dust bag consumption. It comes with the purchase of a Miele certified dust bag box.
Change of the pre-motor filter of Miele Neptune is done either simultaneously with the start of a new Miele FilterBag box or when the filter gets heavily soiled, whichever comes first. It comes with the purchase of a genuine Miele FilterBag box.
Optional filters that can be used with the Miele Neptune includes an active HEPA filter and an active Air Clean filter. The HEPA filter is a 99.99+% dust particle retainer proven to be ideal for asthma and allergy sufferers. The need for the HEPA filter change is approximated to be once in a year.
The Air Clean filter of Miele Neptune is a 99.95% 0.5 micron-sized particle retainer proven to be ideal for pet owners. It combines the Super Air Clean filter and an active charcoal cassette for dust bag odour absorption. The need for the Air Clear filter change comes after a 50 hour or 12 month usage.
Miele Neptune – Air Pollutants
Adverse health effects are linked to fine particle exposure by the Environmental Protection Agency a.k.a. EPA. Individual particles that appear invisible to the naked eye can collectively appear as smog or dust clouds. 0.3-0.5 micron particles have a great possibility of being deeply inhaled into the lungs, absorbed into the bloodstream and remain embedded in the lung tissues for extended time periods. The size of a micron is equivalent to 1 1/200th of the width of a human hair strand.
There are 6 air pollutants that have been identified as the most harmful to public health and environment, including particulate matter. These fine particles can originate from both outdoor and indoor sources. Outdoor sources include diesel trucks, fuel combustion and power plants while indoor sources include wood stoves, air fresheners and vacuum cleaners.
Vacuum cleaners like Miele Neptune can actually pollute the air you breathe by exhausting a million fine particles per minute, as a result of the normal wear and tear of vacuum cleaner motors.
Miele commissioned the Interbasic Resources a.k.a. IBR, an accredited third party laboratory, to determine the carbon dust particle emission volume of each fan of 5 leading vacuum cleaning brands. The test results showed the poorest performing unit to discharge over 13,000,000 0.3-0.5 micron sized particles per minute. The Miele vacuum cleaner like Miele Neptune emitted 638 times fewer carbon dust particles than the vacuum cleaner tested average.
The IBR tests also included the complete emission frequency measurement for each unit, evaluating its overall capture and retention rate. The test findings reveal that Miele vacuum cleaners like Miele Neptune significantly captured the most fine particles, with the second nearest brand releasing 21 times more particles per minute.
On the assumption that the average homeowner vacuums for approximately 20 minutes 3x a week, the resulting IBR test data showed the leading vacuum cleaner to have an emission rate of 175,928 0.3-0.5 micron-sized particles per minute compared to 23,396 particles by Miele.
In conclusion, the IBR tests proved Miele to be 99.99+% effective in the capture and retention of 0.3 micron-sized particles or larger. Try Miele Neptune now!
