Traditional Approach to Filtration
Basic filtration technology has not advanced since the 1950s. Common furnace filters are constructed of fiberglass strands that only capture large dirt and dust particles visible to the naked eye. Pleated filters are made of treated cellulose that is crimped in order to create a larger surface area. While they are more effective than fiberglass, pleated filters can only capture particles down to 3 microns. Contaminants 2.5 microns and smaller are considered the most damaging to lung tissue. While effective down to .3 microns, HEPA filters create too much static pressure loss for practical use in residential systems. Electronic air cleaners are useful, but they are expensive and require extensive maintenance and periodic cell replacement.
The Air Scrubber Plus
The Air Scrubber Plus is a new indoor air quality product based on the same technology NASA developed for its manned space flight program. The concept was adapted to address the problems created by tight homes, and the device is especially effective for those suffering from COPD, asthma, allergies and immune system deficiencies.
Conventional air purifiers are passive in nature, so they only capture airborne irritants that travel directly through or past the device. Viruses, dust, smoke and spores often remain trapped in the living area until they are unwittingly inhaled by an occupant. Germs, bacteria and viruses transferred from your hands to counters and fixtures can stay alive for hours, days or weeks. The Air Scrubber Plus is an active system that cleans and disinfects the air as well as all the surfaces inside your home or office.
