Futureairtech.com Offers Patent-Pending Air Purification Technology, Free Shipping
Online PR News – 15-October-2010 – – Urbanization, industrialization, mutant virus strains — these are only a few of the factors that make cleaning the air we breathe a necessity. Air purifiers and cleaners are widely available. But only the Air Oasis Air Purifier uses the nano Nickel HCT™ catalyst. This patent-pending hydrated five metal nano catalyst, combined with a 254 nm UV lamp with a proprietary long life coating, delivers the benefits many seek from Photo Catalytic Oxidation (PCO) purifiers of air. Now, Future Air Technology will ship an Air Oasis appliance to your US home or office free with an order of $500 or more.
The PCO technology inside the Air Oasis is more efficient than high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters. HEPA filters are mats of randomly arranged fibers that trap small particles through interception, impaction and diffusion. But it takes lots of energy to pull air through the mat. The longer the HEPA filter is in use, the more clogged the mat becomes. Then even more energy is required to make the filtration effective.
PCO technology is approved by the FDA for reducing bacteria in meat processing plants and to clean pesticides from vegetables and fruit. The Photo in PCO refers to intense ultraviolet light. The Catalyst is a metallic surface. Together, the light and the catalytic metal accelerate oxidation of toxins and contaminates. Dirty, germ-laden air enters the PCO air purifier: clean, fresh air exits.
PCO is a promising technology, but it has to be executed properly. Many devices marketed as PCO air purifiers and cleaners use titanium dioxide (TiO2) screens. TiO2 is so cheap it is used as white pigment in standard house paints. When combined with a cheap UV lamp, these catalysts can actually make air quality worse. As Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) pass through these devices, they begin to oxidize, but without the proper catalyst and photonic intensity, the breakdown is incomplete. Instead of carbon dioxide and water, partial PCO can actually raise the levels of formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, formic acid and acetic acid. Formaldehyde in particular is classified as a human carcinogen.
The Air Oasis uses a high-spectrum 254 nm UV lamp with a proprietary long life coating to mimic the action of high-intensity sunlight. Photons from this lamp are beamed onto a 360-degree catalytic target composed of nano Nickel HCT, a patent-pending hydrated five metal alloy. Preliminary test results at West Texas A&M University show significant reductions in VOCs. Not only that, but the Air Oasis sanitizes the air, killing mold spores, mildew, bacteria, and viruses: even H1N1 (swine flu) and methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
Air Oasis PCO technology is available in a wide range of sizes to fit any environment, from a car, boat or plane to an entire commercial building.
