HOW IT WORKS
Why does air quality matter?
The World Health Organization (WHO) recently tightened its guidance on air pollutants, citing clear evidence of the damage poor air quality inflicts on human health. The WHO makes the case that air pollutants need to be treated the same as other major health crises such as tobacco use and unhealthy diets. This is bad news for Americans who spend 90% of their time indoors, where pollutants are two to five times more concentrated than outdoors.
What does SecureAire do?
SecureAire is scientifically proven to remove or inactivate up to 99.9% of the smallest and most dangerous particles in the air you breathe. For example, SecureAire has been proven to reduce infections at a hospital and kill the ANTHRAX surrogate in real-world scientific studies.
What is ACTIVE Particle Control?
SecureAire’s ACTIVE Particle Control Technology is a complete air purification system that employs a patented 4-step process to create the Safest, Healthiest, and Cleanest Indoor Air Possible.
As particles in unfiltered air move through the SecureAire system, they are Conditioned. The Conditioner emits equal amounts of positive and negative charges, and as particles pass through, they pick up these charges.
During the Conditioning phase, particles acquire either a positive or negative charge. The Collision step forces them to collide with each other through inelastic collisions creating ionic bonds, one of the strongest bonds in nature. Thousands of times a second, conditioned particles are forced to collide, gaining weight in the process, and becoming neutral in charge.
Due to electrostatic forces, the smallest particles remain suspended in air and are not very susceptible to air ow movement. But SecureAire’s Conditioning and Collision process helps to transform small particles/pathogens into larger clusters that now have enough weight to be carried by air currents.
3. Capture & Inactivate
Once these larger clusters of particles/pathogens are carried via air ow to the SecureAire Cartridge, they are captured and permanently held on the filter via strong ionic bonds. Within the cartridge, viable pathogens are exposed to an energy field that causes extreme oxidative cellular stress, destroying them and rendering them harmless.
Finally, perhaps the most critical aspect of any air purification process is Transport. SecureAire’s ACTIVE Particle Control Technology’s 4-Step Process is one of the only known air purification technologies to be able to transport small and harmful airborne pathogens from a treated space.
The 4-Step process never stops.
The smallest particles that escape capture are again electrically conditioned and propelled back into the treated space to further collect pathogens, TVOCs, gases, odors, bacteria, viruses, and other harmful airborne particles.
The ACTIVE Particle Control Effect
Research has shown that the smallest airborne particles can also be the most harmful. Viruses, bacteria, and VOCs are on that list. Yet the smallest particles are also the least susceptible to airflow and, due to electro-static forces remain suspended in the air, nearly unaffected by air currents.
SecureAire’s ACTIVE Particle Control technology conditions the smallest particles to adhere to each other, forming ever-larger clusters that air currents can then move to the filter where these particles are inactivated or destroyed. As a result, our technology can remove the smallest and most dangerous particles from the air.
Why is SecureAire better than a traditional HEPA filter?
HEPA units cannot filter the most dangerous particulates because they are too small to be transported or moved by airflow alone and never make it to the filter.
SecureAire is 95% more effective at removing tiny “ultrafine” particles than HEPA filters alone, according to a comparative study.
