How it Works

 

diagram of our filter's anatomy

Our machine's motor blower first draws air through a set of tribo-electrically charged particulate pre-filters and gas phase filters, which are composed of nonwovens, dessicants, coal-based activated carbon, and a catalyst. These capture or breakdown humidity, gross particulate, aldehydes, a wide range of gasses, and carbon monoxide.

 

In addition, a filter can be included that either contains coconut-shell-based activated carbon (to capture hydrocarbons like benzene) or military-grade impregnated activated carbon that captures poison gasses.

 

Finally, a HEPA captures at least 99.97% of fine particulate. This includes all types of viruses and bacteria, radiation particles, diesel soot, black carbon, cadmium, lead, etc.
