Other Oransi’s Air Purifier Reviews:
Oransi mod Jr Price
The Oransi mod Jr, in a-minute review, offers great air cleaning experience for around $399, and can be at lower monthly payment if you follow our deal. It doesn’t excel in any other regard, perhaps some good design style, but you can get many higher-performance air purifiers for the price. Still, it is solid and if you’re a fan of Oransi, go ahead.
While the MERV-17 True HEPA filter of this Oransi mod Jr doesn’t make it different from any other devices in the same bracket, it undoubtedly a good option for around $399. As you can see, competitors like Medify MA-50, Vornado PCO575DC, TruSens Z-3000 or Alen BreatheSmart 45i aren’t true air purifiers with the exceptional fan power. Ticking with the right boxes, the Oransi mod Jr is a serious pick for that much of money.
However, as its power and performance are just the same as the Blue Pure 311 Auto, and the fact that this smart air purifier from Blueair costs about half of the Oransi mod Jr, making it less attractive. The reduced price of Levoit LV-H134 and Airthereal AGH550 get you better results for the money, drown the Oransi mod Jr to the bottom of the list.
Though you can get better performance for the money, the Oransi mod Jr is somehow worth the asking price. It is backed by a 10-year warranty, second to none in the mid-range segment. You also have 60 days to return the products, and many good customer services to go on. So, if price isn’t your priority, why not check our deal and get your first try on Oransi mod Jr.

Oransi mod Jr Design and Size
Though the Oransi mod Jr has an in-betweener pricing, it is just a smaller design of its brother Oransi mod for most of its core parts. Actually I don’t know the design language of the low-range to mid-range Oransi products, as it varies from classic to modern, from very ugly to sleek. Luckily, the Oransi mod Jr is in the sleek side.
While you might find yourself pining for the feel of metal, we found the effect to be rather appealing. It has the smooth, low-profile exterior like its big brother, and though you don’t think it as premium as the Oransi EJ120, remember that most air purifiers are made out of plastic. This approach gives the Oransi mod Jr a better appearance than most other air purifiers in the same price range, mainly thanks to its cylindrical shape.
At 22 inches in height and 12 inches in diameter, the Oransi mod Jr doesn’t really too smaller than the Oransi mod. However, it is portable enough at just 18 lbs. With a convenient handle, you can grab and move this air purifier easily. You still have a metal base, to keep the dust not stacking and improve the air inlet. It also adds up the height of the Oransi mod Jr.
Oransi mod Jr stays at its bottom-to-top air flow system concept, a traditional airflow system for any cylindrical air purifiers. Its outlet air grills are quite stylish, with the glass control panel at center. Overall the Oransi mod Jr is suitable to use in bedroom and small rooms, and I find its control panel sleek and premium, with less junky buttons.

Oransi mod Jr Filters
To determine the performance of one air purifier, first you need to know of its air filtration system, as well as its air filter types. The Oransi mod Jr doesn’t stray far from the original Oransi mod, taking a serious 3-stage air cleaning system, which is certified by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to be safe to use.
- Pre-filter – The air must first bypass the pre-filter, where it removes the largest airborne particles like dust and debris so that they don’t clog the filter or impede airflow. It can be vacuumed or wiped with a cloth to clean.
- True HEPA filter – One of the best True HEPA filters (MERV-17), which can capture 99.97% of any airborne pollutant particles that pass through the system like pet dander, pet hair, mold spores, dust mites, pollen, allergens and other solid particles as small as 0.3 microns. It is said to eliminate 99.4% of particles at 0.02 microns.
- Activated Carbon filter – A stand-alone carbon filter which can remove light odors, light smoke and smells. It can remove 88% of formaldehyde in 2 hours.
Oransi mod Jr brings the MERV-17 True HEPA filter that you can only get from high-end models of Oransi, like Oransi EJ120 or Oransi Erik 650A, to the low mid-range. This mechanical air filter can capture 99.4 to 99.7% of particles down to 0.01 microns. Truly it is able to trap nano-sized particles.
In the same test of 200 square feet in 1 hour, the Oransi mod Jr performs nearly identical to its predecessor – Oransi Max, capping at 99.95% for trapping any particles down to 0.3 microns, which is also the same performance with Medify MA-50 and Blueair Classic 280i. I believe this performance is better than the Rabbit Air BioGS 2.0, TruSens Z-3000 and Alen BreatheSmart 45i.
Oransi mod Jr features a nearly identical air filter with the Oransi mod, asking for just $72, $3 less for smaller size. The air filter is able to run after 6-12 months, depending on the air quality condition.

Oransi mod Jr Room Coverage
Oransi mod Jr is one of many Oransi air purifiers tested and certified by the the AHAM (Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers), and its result capped at 360 square feet. Oransi, however, suggests that you can run at 878 square feet, and they aren’t completely wrong, as this is the performance of this air purifier with 2 air changes per hour.
The ACH of Oransi mod Jr is 2X to 4X. At suggested room coverage of AHAM, you can run this air purifier exchange air up to 4 times per hour.
The CADR of Oransi mod Jr is 238 Dust/ 234 Smoke/ 251 Pollen (cfm). Losing the ionizer feature, the Oransi mod Jr scores the equal performance as the Oransi Max, despite of a much and much better CADR rating.

Oransi mod Jr Sound
Oransi mod Jr has a new fan design from any Oransi air purifiers before it, and it can keep low noise level as low as 20 decibels (db), and high noise level as high as 56 decibels, while delivering a much more powerful wind blow. It is even much cooler when you enjoy the fresh air on highest speed.
However, it is still audible on highest speed, so I suggest you to keep the noise level as low as possible when sleeping.

Oransi mod Jr Power Consumption
One of our most FAQs is “Do air purifiers use a lot of energy?” In fact, air purifier must be used for a long time to be efficient. And power consumption is one important criteria to review if this air purifier is good or not.
Oransi mod Jr is also an Energy Star air purifier, as it serves the latest Japanese engineered EC motor, which can reduce 90% power. Its power consumption is only 50 watts, so it is about 80% better than the Oransi Max.
If you use the Oransi mod Jr for 8 hours per day, you need to pay $18 each year.

Oransi mod Jr Additional Features
Just like its come-along brother Oransi mod, the Oransi mod Jr doesn’t have any additional features. Yes, no Smart Sensor or Wi-Fi capability feature like the Blueair Classic 280i or Vornado PCO575DC.
There is still left for you a LED indicator for filter replacement. It will flash red after 4500 hours of use.
Oransi mod Jr Customer Service
Oransi is a brand that being used by the leading companies, medical centers and universities like the American Red Cross or Menlo Medical Clinic.

You can buy the Oransi mod Jr if you’re looking for a decent mid-range air purifier, backed up with 10-year warranty policy and a good customer service. This Oransi mod Jr is also a portable air purifier with smaller footprint and cheaper price tag than the Oransi mod.
But don’t buy it if you’re after the best performance for your money. It isn’t a capable air purifier to deal with mold or viruses like the Vornado PCO575DC, and it’s nowhere near the power of the Blue Pure 121. Though it isn’t bad, you can do better for around $300 with things like the Levoit LV-H134 or Airthereal AGH550. Even if you are a diehard Oransi fan, you should consider carefully, especially when the Oransi Max has dropped its price.
A decent air purifier from Oransi, and its performance isn’t far from the old Oransi Max.
