Health benefits of Airmega Air Purifiers
Innovatively engineered to shield you and your loved ones from airborne viruses like SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19).
Technology that promotes health
Certain Airmegas have been tested and proven to remove over 99.98%³ of the SARS-CoV-2 virus floating in an indoor space in just two minutes, reducing the virus count from over 560,000 to less than 10.
According to the EPA, in order to select an air cleaner that effectively filters viruses from the air, you must choose “a unit that is designated a HEPA unit, or specifically indicates that it filters particles in the 0.1-1 micron size range.”
Airmega uses multiple layers of filtration, including a Green True HEPA™️ filter, that can remove over 99.98%³ of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and more than 99.999%¹ of all airborne contaminants down to 0.01 microns, exceeding the EPA’s recommendation.

0.01㎛ size particles removed by 99.999% (Removal duration may vary per model)
1Coway air purifiers has been proven to trap dust, pollen, dander, viruses and bacteria in the air based on KCL (Korea Conformity Laboratories) testing. They have been tested in a 30㎥ size chamber according to the Korea Air Cleaning Association standard (SPS-KACA 002-132:2018 Modified) to measure the 0.01㎛ size of particle removal rate. It was tested on maximum fan speed in normal room temperature and humidity conditions. The performance may vary in the actual living environment of customers. Tested with Coway airmega 150, AP-1216L, AP-1512HH, AP-1512HHS, 250, 300, 300S, 400, 400S.
3Aerosol test conducted in a Biosafety level 3 laboratory with Coway Airmega air purifier models, Airmega 250 and 400 for removal of SARS-CoV-2 Aerosol by US based MRI Global, a not-for-profit laboratory and partner of US Department of Defense. The test was conducted in a 13.1ft3 chamber. Virus was aerosolized for 15 minutes, and the product was turned on high for 2 minutes. Results showed each product effectively removed over 99.98% of the SARS-CoV-2 in 2 minutes. This results from a laboratory experiment condition and may vary in different conditions. This result does not imply it kills SARS-CoV-2 or prevents the transmission of Covid-19. The Coway Airmega 250S and 400S are identical to the tested models and have equal performance with an additional mobile connectivity function.
