Is Your Indoor Air Safe?
Most of us are familiar with the typical indoor pollutants such as dust, smoke, pesticides and mold but common building materials, cleaning products, air fresheners, furniture, fabrics and carpet can also contribute to poor air quality.
These indoor pollutants can contribute to a variety of short and long term health issues.
In fact, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America states that indoor air quality is one of the top five environmental health risks.
If you're like most people, you probably spend 90% of your time indoors, so why not protect yourself and those you love?
Types of Gaseous Contaminants:
Toxic - Substances which can cause damage to living tissue, impairment of the central nervous system, or in extreme cases, death.
Corrosive - Substances which are likely to cause deterioration or damage to the interior of your home or its contents.
Irritant - Substances which can cause discomfort, and potentially permanent damage, to an exposed person.
Odorous - Substances which primarily affect the olfactory senses.
Superior Air Filtration Technology
Typical particulate filters can ONLY remove particulates from the air stream, not gaseous contaminants. In order to properly clean your indoor air, it is important to not only remove the particulates, but also the gaseous contaminants. Purafil manufactures and engineers dry-chemical pellets that remove gaseous contaminants from the air and package these inside our filters. We call these pellets Media because they are the medium through which the contaminants are removed. Purafil has combined both of these methods into one combination filter; the Purafilter®. This unique product removes particles AND toxic, corrosive, irritant and odorous gases.
The Removal Process with our KMnO4 Impregnated Fiber Filter
Purafil Media removes pollutants via chemisorption.Chemisorption is the result of chemical reactions on and in the adsorbent. This process is specific and depends on the chemical nature of both the adsorbent and adsorbate
This Process is Essentially Instantaneous & Irreversible
Will Not Release Chemicals Back Into the Airstream
Will Not Support Bacterial or Fungal Growth
Oxidation Chemically Changes Harmful Gases to Harmless Solids
For over 40 years, Purafil has been the world leader in the engineering and manufacture of gas-phase air filtration media, systems, and air quality monitors. Purafil revolutionized the gas-phase air filtration industry with the development of the world's first potassium permanganate, air-cleaning media. Today, Purafil is providing innovative, clean air solutions to customers in every geography and market. Purafil is supported by over 2,000 factory trained representative firms across the globe.
In process industries, we are preventing corrosion of machinery and computer controls. In buildings, we are removing odors and improving indoor air quality. In museums, libraries, and archives, we are preserving art and historical documents. In cleanrooms, we are increasing yield and product reliability. In water and wastewater operations, we are protecting the environment.
