Dayton Air Purifiers Comparison Charts

Updated on October 16, 2012

Dayton 2HPE1 Portable Air Cleaner, HEPA, UV, 20/40/60 CFM

Dayton Air Purifiers

Dayton is no longer a company of its own. It is a brand name now owned by the Grainger company. Dayton is a brand representing a line of air purifiers sold by Grainger. These air purifiers are hybrids that combine filtration and active purification technology like ionization to clean the air. I would classify them as middle of the road air purifiers with average to sub average performance. They will tend to be cheaper on the front end and cost more over the long term. Use these charts to see which Dayton air purifiers best suit your needs, then compare them (using the other charts I have made available) to see how they compare to the competition in the air purification industry.
