Level 1: Particle Filter

The purpose of this filter is to capture initial dust and allergen particles. It helps extend the life of the HEPA filter by removing large particles before they can get to the HEPA filter. You will find visible dust, hair, and lint in the particle filter.

NOTE: See Maintenance instruction for the Particle Filter.












Level 2: HEPA Filter

HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air. The inlet grill of your air purifier draws in dirty air. Crane’s air purifier true HEPA filter removes at least 99.97% of all particles as small as 0.3 microns. Microns are used to measure the size of these microscopic airborne particles.


Allergens such as pollen, smoke, animal dander, mold spores, and dust get trapped in the HEPA filter.

Level 3: Activated Carbon Filter

The activated carbon filter helps absorb common household odors caused from tobacco, pets, garbage, and cooking

Level 4: UV Bulb

The ultraviolet bulb helps reduce germs from growing in the HEPA filter.
