Purifying the Air of Tomorrow.
Our patented Disinfecting Filtration System (DFS) Technology traps microorganisms for continuous germicidal exposure, resulting in the most powerful indoor air purification in the world. DFS Technology has four times the filter loading capacity than a typical HEPA rated filter , capturing 99.99% of particles at 0.007 microns. This makes HealthWay’s air purification systems the most efficient available.
HEPA: 99.97% efficient at .3 micron
Healthway DFS: 99.99% efficient at 0.007 microns (40x more than a typical HEPA filtration )
HEPA: Limited microorganism capture
Healthway DFS: Captures 99.99% of harmful microorganisms
HEPA: No VOC (volatile organic compound) removal
Healthway DFS: VOC oxidation and adsorption
Origins of ultrafine particles Airborne particles
originate from many natural and man-made sources (e.g. sand dust, fires, diesel smoke, sea salt). Ultrafine particles are only generated at very high temperatures, such as combustion processes, including wood fires, car engines, industry, cooking fumes and cigarette smoke.
Potential health hazards
Ultrafine particles penetrate deep in the lungs. The concentration of these particles is higher, making them harder for the lungs to deal with, leading to inflammation. Also, these particles are small enough to enter the cells in the body and end up in the bloodstream, potentially causing heart and brain diseases. Children, elderly people and people with lung problems like asthma are especially vulnerable to ultrafine particle air pollution.
There are currently no official regulations in place to deal with the ultrafine particle epidemic. But they are in the process of being developed by several regulatory bodies, such as ISO, OECD, EPA and CEN.
