A Dynamic Air Cleaner and Superior Dynamic Air Filter Technology
The reasons why the Electro Breeze Dynamic Air Cleaner works so much better compared to other filters is because it takes advantage of three scientific filtration principles combined in one product to filter air and trap unwanted and harmful particulate. The three scientific principles at work in all models of the Electro Breeze Dynamic Air Cleaner: Impingement, Polarization and Agglomeration. Virtually every other filtration media type filters use only impingement.
Impingement is the process that all media filters use to trap dust. Simply stated, in order to trap particles the impingement process relies on media being placed in the path of oncoming airborne particulate and striking the particulate as it flows by in an effort to stop it. The degree of effectiveness of this method depends on the amount of material contained in the media filter placed in the path of these oncoming airborne particulate.
Commercial filters using this type of process cover the entire range of efficiencies. The finer and more dense the media used the greater the efficiency. High efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters have high efficiencies along with very dense fiber packing, however the tradeoff associated with these filters is a reduced volume of filtered air - all things being equal.
Impingement type filters always have a built-in compromise between air flow and efficiency. The greater the efficiency of the filter, the lower the volume of air that is filtered. The greater the flow of air the lower the efficiency except in the case of Electro Breeze which also use polarization and agglomeration to trap particulate.
The Electro Breeze induced polarized media dynamic air cleaner is the exception to this principle. The Electro Breeze dynamic air filter is not subject to compromise between air flow and high efficiency, and they meet all the demands for increased air flow and high efficiency.
The second major scientific principle used in engineering the Electro Breeze Dynamic Air Cleaner is polarization. It is well known that an electrical charge will have an influence on any substance that comes in proximity to the charge. Electro Breeze polarization takes advantage of this principle to enhance the effectiveness of the dynamic air cleaner media. This polarization process accounts for a good portion of the dynamic air filter efficiency of all Electro Breeze Air Cleaners.
Airborne particles as explained above enter the Electro Breeze filter and are polarized by the induced static charge and take on characteristics of millions of tiny magnets. As a result four distinct possibilities can occur:
- These magnetized particles can attach themselves to the charged fiber strands in the filter.
- They can strike or become attached to each other and form larger particles. (Agglomeration)
- These larger (Agglomerated) particles can become attached to the fiber filter strands.
- The particles may pass through the filter and AGGLOMERATE and be captured on subsequent passes.
The combination of induced electrostatic polarization along with the process of agglomeration makes the Electro Breeze dynamic air filter completely unique, highly efficient and in many cases it compares favorably with a HEPA. This is achieved with its very low resistance to air flow. You can order optional fiber mesh replacement pads with an activated carbon center screen for the best air filtration product.
