What are ultra-fine particles

Ultra Fine Particles are particles of around 100nm or less in diameter. The size of particles is directly linked to their potential for causing health problems. Small particles less than 10 micrometers in diameter pose the greatest problems, because they can get deep into your lungs, and some may even get into your bloodstream.

Exposure to such particles can affect both your lungs and your heart. Numerous scientific studies have linked particle pollution exposure to a variety of problems, including:

  • premature death in people with heart or lung disease
  • nonfatal heart attacks
  • irregular heartbeat
  • aggravated asthma
  • decreased lung function
  • increased respiratory symptoms, such as irritation of the airways, coughing or difficulty breathing.

People with heart or lung diseases, children, and older adults are the most likely to be affected by particle pollution exposure. (Source: EPA)

Why is Atmofizer uniquely positioned to eliminate the threat of UFP's?

Atmofizer works with an innovative, world-wide patented technology that was developed by renowned German scientists. Atmofizer uses ultrasonic waves to agglomerate ultra-fine particles (UFP’s) less than 200 nm so that they can be effectively neutralized using UV-C light. Today’s air purification solutions typically use a type of HEPA filter and/or UV-C light and are optimized for particle sizes around 300 nm.

Is COVID-19 considered an UFP?

COVID-19 is a particle with the diameter of 120nm and considered a UFP.

Has Atmofizer been tested in Aerosol laborites?

Yes, one of the most renown aerosol laboratories in the world, the IUTA in Germany, has tested and verified the efficiency of our Atmofizer’s technology. Independent experts confirmed these groundbreaking results.

How does Atmofizer work to agglomerate UFP’s?

Atmofizer’s patented technology uses ultrasonic waves to agglomerate particles.

Why are HEPA filter systems not as effective as Atmofizer?

HEPA filters were invented in the 1940’s and aren’t highly effective on particles less than 300 nm.

Is Atmofizer loud?

The Atmofizer 2000 is approximately as loud as a fridge (49dbA)

What is the capacity of Atomfizer to process polluted air?

The Atmofizer 500 is designed for spaces up to 500 sqft. The Atmofizer 2000 is designed for large spaces up to 2,000 sqft.
