Air purifier Airfree: pollen
The "allergic" side of Spring.
Spring is a period of intense blossoming and pollination. During this process, pollen grains, which are male reproductive structures, are brought to the flowers' female organs by several means. Some of these means are wind and insects.
This increases the number of these grains in the air. Thus, pollen becomes a greater discomfort to those who suffer from allergies to other elements such as dust mites and fungi.
Pollen causes respiratory problems when it penetrates into the nasal passages, resulting in asthma attacks and allergic rhinitis, sneezing in succession, runny nose and nasal congestion. Some people may experience shortness of breath and wheezing. Another fairly common problem caused by these grains is allergic conjunctivitis, which causes itchy and red eyes.
The smaller they are, the more annoying they are!
Pollens are very small particles - like dust - (on average 0.016 to 0.060 mm), usually invisible to the naked eye, that derive from grasses, weeds, trees and flowers. Contrary to what one might think, pollen grains from species that have flashy flowers and leaves such as like roses, chrysanthemums and other plants, are the least cause of allergy problems. This is because they are large and heavy, transportable almost exclusively by insects such as the bee, from which they depend for their reproduction.
The species responsible for allergies are grasses, weeds and trees, which follow certain characteristics: they produce large amounts of pollen grains that are light - which facilitates their transport by wind, through which reproduction is made, - and sufficiently small to penetrate our respiratory tract. Pollen can be transported through great distances, such as 100 km.
For allergy sufferers, pollination leads to an allergic process called pollinosis or pollen disease, which is a manifestation of hypersensitivity to pollen released by plants and that brings a significant discomfort for those who are already allergic to other elements.
AIRFREE® PURIFIERS are up to 99% efficient in destroying airborne mold spores, bacteria, viruses, ozone, mite and dust allergens, and other airborne allergens derived from animals and pollen, and they are major allies in increasing the quality of life of people who suffer from allergies.
How do they work?
They dramatically reduce air pollution by burning the microorganisms. As a result, the contaminated air is drawn into the Airfree® ceramic core and destroyed at high temperatures. This air purification cycle is silent, requires no maintenance and is guaranteed by numerous tests.
Efficient - Tested and approved in real environments (no simulations) at the best institutes around the world. Airfree® destroys any microorganism passing through the ceramic sterilizer, regardless of its size or hazard level.
Silent - Completely noiseless.
Exclusive - Internationally patented technology that is exclusive to Airfree® products, the only one that also reduces ozone concentrations.
Economic - No part replacement expenses or significant energy costs, since Airfree® consumes only 48w per hour.
Practical - Turn it on and forget about it, since the devices require no maintenance or cleaning.
No contraindications – Completely natural process which uses no radiation, chemical or toxic products, and do not interfere with the temperature or humidity of the environment.
1. Are there any side effects?
No. Airfree’s new technology uses heat to purify the air. No side effects, no emissions, NO IONS, nor new particles are generated. Airfree® should be used in all homes and offices, quietly, constantly, and efficiently purifying the air.
2. Does Airfree eliminate bacteria and viruses?
Yes. Unlike the air filters in the market Airfree® is more efficient with the smallest microorganisms as they are easily carried by Airfree’s airflow into its heated ceramic core.
3. How does Airfree destroy dust mites?
Mould reduction in the environment causes reduction in the mould dependant dust mite population. Airfree also destroys the harmful toxins and fungus freed by dust mite feces that trigger respiratory allergies.
4. How does Airfree eliminate fungi?
As mentioned before, Airfree eliminates airborne microorganisms included fungi and spores. By eliminating spores new colonies are unlikely to develop, representing less future airborne spores.
5. How does Airfree® destroy viruses?
Those microscopic microorganisms are easily eliminated inside Airfree’s ceramic core capillaries. The temperature inside of Aifree’s capillaries is much higher than required to incinerate them. Airfree® is your greatest ally in respiratory disease prevention.
6. Does Airfree reduce tobacco smell?
Yes, Airfree reduces any kind of organic smell in the ambience including tobacco.
7. Does Airfree release any gas or chemical product?
No. Airfree’s sterilisation process is natural. Please check our website for conclusive tests regarding particles and ozone.
8. Does Airfree heat up a room?
No. Airfree does not noticeable increase room temperature. To have an idea 2 Airfrees plugged in the same room will contribute as much heat as the presence of one adult in that same room.
9. Does Airfree provoke any change in room’s the relative humidity?
10. Does Airfree need filter replacement?
11. Does Airfree consume a lot of energy?
No. Airfree’s consumption is just 52 Watts for P150, 50 Watts for P125, 48 Watts for P80, 45 Watts for P60, 50 Watts for E125, 48 Watts for E80 , 45 Watts for E60 and 40 Watts for E40.
12. Where do the microorganisms go after they are destroyed?
As all living organisms, microorganisms and their products are basically composed of carbon, oxygen and nitrogen. Since Airfree® reaches approx. 200º C, all the components are supposed to suffer a combustion process, which liberates carbon dioxide (the same product released by our respiration) and water. Some carbon (or ashes) may remain in the process. If there is some residual allergen left, we might consider that they suffer denaturation, a process resulting in loss of conformation and function. It should be noted that we are talking about reactions that occur in a microscopic level, so all these processes or by-products won’t be perceived. In this case, there is no need to worry about maintenance.
