Lumileds Introduces GoPure GP5611 Automotive Air Purifier


Recommended Posts

Lumileds said it has taken a major step in addressing the growing concern over air purity and respiratory illnesses brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In response, Lumileds has created the new Philips GoPure GP5611 automotive air purifier, a powerful and innovative car air purifier that’s engineered to clean air quickly and efficiently in most vehicle interiors and help reduce the risk of airborne transmission of viruses and bacteria, according to the company.

“The new Philips GoPure GP5611 is so advanced that it can capture ultra-fine particles, including microbes, in just 10 minutes, and its convenient design makes it an easy fit in most vehicle cup holders,” said Aubry Baugh, Lumileds product marketing manager.

The GoPure GP5611 features three layers of defense: a Philips SaniFilter Plus filter, a powerful UVC light and a HESAMax filtration cartridge.

The Philips SaniFilter Plus filter has been tested at IUTA laboratory in Germany and proven to capture 99% of ultra-fine particles, including particles as small as 0.004 microns that can get deep into the lungs and may create serious health risks, according to the company. The filter captures bacteria and respiratory viruses as well as airborne allergens such as pollen, dust mites, mold spores and pet dander at a 99% efficiency.

The Philips SaniFilter Plus filter features a special anti-microbial layer to inhibit the growth of microorganisms inside the device, including mold spores.

UVC light damages the molecular bonds that hold DNA together, so it is highly effective at eliminating bacteria and viruses. For decades, UVC light has been used for sterilization in hospitals, transportation, factories and more. Now, it is being used to help clean the air inside cars.

The Philips UVC lighting module inside the GoPure GP5611 is designed to kill bacteria and viruses trapped in the filter by exposing them to ultraviolet light. The UVC LEDs used in the module were tested independently from the air purifier at KR Biotech Lab on Sars-CoV-2 (COVID-19-causing virus) by applying UV light directly onto the virus in a petri dish, effectively destroying 99% of the virus in five minutes. In the GoPure GP5611, the UVC light acts on the particles captured by the filter.

An air purifier does not treat or prevent COVID-19, and by itself, does not protect against exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19, but it can be part of a plan to help protect motorists from exposure, according to the EPA.

      Continental has introduced a new line of powersport fan assemblies for direct replacement on popular ATVs and UTVs.
      The new fan-assembly range includes four models offering specific applications on the Polaris RZR and Sportsman Scrambler and Can-Am Outlander Renegade and Maverick.
      Although cooling-fan assemblies are a critical part of the engine cooling system, they typically have very little protection on ATVs and UTVs. Exposure to harsh terrains and extreme climates, as well as debris and foreign objects, make ATV cooling fans a high-risk failure part. Continental ATV cooling fans are engineered and built for dependable performance in rugged off-road conditions and a wide range of weather elements, according to the company.
      “Off-road recreational vehicles is one of the fastest-growing segments in the motorsports industry, which is still considered to be in its infancy,” said Christina Bergstrom, senior product manager. “Due to the high incidence of replacement, we expect a very strong market demand for our new line of Continental powersports cooling-fan assemblies.”

      Now there’s a way to ensure more reliable power from EcoBoost-powered 2.3-liter engines with the introduction of MAHLE Motorsport’s 4032 alloy Ford EcoBoost 2.3L PowerPak Plus Piston kit.
      Designed for heavy-duty applications in which the OE cast piston has been known to fail, MAHLE Motorsport has introduced a 4032 alloy option that not only adds much-needed strength, but also allows for a tighter piston to wall clearance for quieter cold startup, according to the company.
      MAHLE Motorsport’s 2.3L PowerPak kit is loaded with value-added features for reliable power production for any 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine, according to MAHLE.
      To help correct problems associated with the OE cast piston, MAHLE Motorsport manufactured this kit with a thick slipper-skirt-style forging and an enhanced OE crown design with increased radius for improved strength. Other special features include a heavy-duty 0.200-inch wall thickness; H13 tool steel wrist pins; and a hard anodized top ring groove that is ideal for extreme-duty applications. 
      The pistons are engineered with thick 0.235-inch top and 0.200-inch second ring lands. The pistons are designed for OE 149.3-millimeter-length connecting rods and OE 22.5-millimeter wrist pins and an OE 32.8-millimeter compression height. Valve pockets and depth accommodates both the 2-liter and 2.3-liter OE EcoBoost heads with a 9.5:1 compression ratio. 
      The new PowerPak Plus kit is available in 87.51-millimeter (No. 197937145) and 88-millimeter (No. 197937165) bore sizes and includes a nitrided steel 1.2-millimeter top, 1.2-millimeter second, 2.8-millimeter oil-ring set. The pistons are coated with MAHLE’s unique GRAFAL anti-friction skirt coating and phosphate to prevent microwelding and pin galling. 
      For more information, visit www.mahlemotorsports.com, or call MAHLE Motorsport toll-free at 888-255-1942.
