Ultrafine particles

We only back products that have the technology to eliminate 99.99% of
ultrafine particles. Find out what ultrafine particles are and how DFS (Disinfecting Filtration System)
technology is the leading solution in air purification.

Where do ultrafine particles come from?

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.

Are ultrafine
particles
harmful?
From year-round exposure to short-term exposure, ultrafine particles have the potential to cause a variety of health problems, including respiratory problems and heart and brain diseases when they enter the bloodstream. They can also worsen pre-existing conditions, such as asthma and allergies. Vulnerable people, such as children, seniors, asthmatics, women who are pregnant, and immunocompromised individuals, are at risk to see health conditions worsen with regular exposure to ultrafine particles.
Regulations
There are currently no official regulations in place to deal with the ultrafine particle epidemic, but there are several in development by regulatory bodies, such as:
ISO
OECD
EPA
CEN
Pandemic proof
Intellipure’s products have been third party tested in response to the latest pandemic. Their DFS technology was found to eliminate 99.987% of surrogate virus particles for SARS-CoV-2 in 10 minutes and 100% in 45 minutes in a home environment. Successful elimination of the virus was achieved within 24 hours.
