The only technology developed to fight the ultrafine particle epidemic.
- The air we breathe is full of microscopic particles. In recent years, scientists are conducting convincing research that indicates the smallest “ultrafine” particles are potentially health hazardous. Luckily, the Ultrafine Series with DFS technology was built specifically to eradicate these harmful particles, at a higher rate than any purifier in the world.
Origins of ultrafine particles
- Airborne particles originate from many natural and man-made sources (e.g. sand dust, fire, 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
