Traditional Filter Technology Comparison

HEPA (High Efficiency Particle Arresting) Filter
Most widely known method for purifying air. Depending on the filter size, and with proper ventilation, it can clean up to 99.99% of particulate in the air. They are not effective in treating mold, mildew, bacteria and other fungi.

Electrostatic Filtration
This filtration system employs a negatively charged surface that is used to attract particulate. In comparison to most HEPA systems, it is more effective in trapping smaller micron particulate and effective in clearing smoke from the air. Low levels of ozone may be produced which can neutralize most mold, mildew, bacteria, and other fungi that comes in contact with the filter.

Ionization
Also uses a negatively charged surface to produce and expel an abundance of negative ions and cause suspended particles to cling to walls, floors, and other surfaces. Most ionizers are effective in settling dust and particulate from our breathing space.

Ozone
Ozone is a very powerful oxidizer that will neutralize odors, mold, mildew, bacteria, and other fungi. This technology is commonly used in flood and fire restoration. Ozone is found to be effective because it works on the problem at the source and air does not have to be pulled through the unit for treatment.

UV Germicidal Lamps
Commonly used for disinfecting purposes. This technology is effective in sterilizing air and surfaces that come in contact with the UV light. UV has been proven in both air and water applications to inactivate bacteria and viruses to prevent them from reproducing.

Photocatalyst
Uses light to react with a catalyst resulting in oxidation. This is found to be effective in destroying mold, mildew, bacteria, other fungi, dust mites, and many odors. This technology is produced with an Ozone/UV lamp set in a variety of combinations. When this type of photocatalysis is combined with the natural humidity in indoor air it creates hydroxyl radicals and super oxide ions that are effective in combating bacteria, fungi and VOCs. This method is also a pro-active approach that goes to the source for treatment.
