Coway introduces new Icon Water Purifier 2 water filter

1. September 2022 South Korean company Coway, a specialist in water and air filters, recently unveiled the second generation of its Icon Water Purifier water filter. Consumers in South Korea are becoming more discerning in their choice of water filters, which have become major household appliances in recent years, according to media reports. In general, devices with appealing designs and small footprints are the most popular. Customers are also concerned about the cleanliness inside the devices in the wake of increasing pollution and COVID-19. Therefore, it is important to choose a manufacturer whose water filter regularly checks the filter quality and suggests changing the filter. Water filters, air filters and similar products for household use often require KC Safety certification to ensure the safety and quality of the product, qualifying it for the Korean market.     Coway took all these influences as an opportunity to develop the Icon Water Purifier 2. This has a modern design and novel purification functions. For example, every six hours, the device performs a 15-minute sterilization of the tap with UV light. In addition, the water filter notifies the owner when a filter needs to be changed. Most of the components are made of Tritan, a special plastic from Eastman Chemical that prevents microorganisms from settling. The special design of the cartridges allows the user to easily remove and clean them. The Icon Water Purifier 2 water filter also passed a materials test conducted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Compared to Coway’s first-generation Icon water filter, the latest version features an improved filtration system, hot water temperature control and pressure regulator. A 7-inch nano trap filter that has been increased in size by one inch over the previous model. The nano-filter is capable of filtering out a total of 94 harmful substances from tap water, including viruses, plasticizers and algae toxins.
