UV photocatalysts on the inside break down the odor molecules instead of covering them with other aromas
The quality of life is closely related to the quality of the air we breathe. This applies not only to open spaces but also to interiors. Most devices on the market absorb odours through filters that need to be replaced regularly. Air fresheners are an alternative that cover unwanted odours with pleasant fragrances. VentiFresh ECO is based on materials developed by NASA and offers a new solution.
The purifier attracts air thanks to a fan and channels it through a UV photocatalyst illuminated with an ultraviolet LED. The light activates the material which accelerates the decomposition reaction of the aromatic molecules. The product of the reaction are water and carbon dioxide, at the end of the process the catalyst deactivating and can continue to purify the air. The catalyst consists mainly of titanium dioxide, already known for its catalytic properties.
The first model of VentiFresh ECO was presented three years ago, a crowdfunding campaign and customer interaction helped the optimization of the purifier. Compared to the products on the market, VentiFresh ECO is much faster and more efficient and can also break down the concentration of harmful substances, such as acetaldehyde. Three modes of use are possible: a quite mode with minimal engine noise, a turbo mode that increases power by 30% and a standby mode.
The application of VentiFresh ECO can improve ventilation systems in factories, hospitals, laboratories and homes. Such systems typically cost thousands of dollars and are often installed within existing ventilation by professional services. The new purifier can easily adapt to these environments by improving air quality and reducing installation costs.
