ultrafine particles. Find out what ultrafine particles are and how DFS (Disinfecting Filtration System)
technology is the leading solution in air purification.
Ultrafine particles come from a variety of sources. They’re known to be hazardous to our well–being and can cause health issues from respiratory problems to cancer.
Size matters in terms of how different particles affect us. Our natural defences help us to reject coarse particles through coughing or sneezing but can’t filter fine or ultrafine particles.
These miniscule particles are smaller than the eye can see and often come from specific processes, combustion reactions, or equipment. Combustion of carbon-based fuels generates most of the fine particles in our atmosphere.
These particles get trapped in the lungs, while the smallest are so minute that they can pass through the lungs and into the bloodstream with essential oxygen molecules that we need to survive.
