The Electrostatic Air Cleaning Process

 The Electrostatic method used by the Maxum to clean the air uses a 3 stage filtering system. In the first stage, the dirty air passes through the particle ionizer. Here the air pollution in the air is given a negative charge.The second stage is a series of collection plates. The dirty air particles are attracted to the plates and are trapped there until they are removed when the filter is washed. In the third stage the cleaned air passes through a activated carbon filter where odors and VOCs are removed by adsorption.

How Air Filters Trap dirt.

Filters work in an air purifier in 3 ways. These methods of trapping dirt particles are called mechanical methods. The first method is impaction.  When a pollutant tries to go through the tight weave of a filter it is trapped. The second method is interception: When a dirt particle gets close enough to a filter fiber it is caught and trapped. The third mechanical method is diffusion.. In a filter, diffusion causes the smaller particle to move out of the main air stream. The small particle matter moves slower. Then, it is trapped by the first two methods.

Air Purifiers for Your Home

Americans spend more time in their homes than anywhere else. Air pollution is more concentrated in our homes. Today’s houses keep more of the dirty air inside. This is why (IAQ) indoor air quality is so important.  When you understand common indoor pollutants, you can control them. We want to you help reduce your health concerns and improve your family’s comfort.

Indoor air pollution is among the top five environmental health risks. The best way to address this risk is to control or eliminate the sources of pollutants.  Ventilating a home with clean outdoor air can accomplish this. Ventilation may be limited by weather or by pollution in the outdoor air. Use a home air purifier to clean the air in your home when it is not feasible to ventilate.

Air Purifiers have been around for more than 150 years. Special needs drove early air cleaner development. Personal protection for firefighters was one of the first developments that lead to today’s modern air purifiers. Protecting ships from German U-boats was another demand sparked air purifier developments. Many technologies we depend on today came from world wide needs in the past. Today allergies and asthma affect more than 50 million Americans. The special needs of modern consumers drive the air purifier market. Consumers want air purifiers that  remove air particles and gases.

Effects of indoor air pollution

Immediate affects may appear after coming into contact once or repeatedly with a pollutant. As a result, you might experience eye, nose and throat irritation. Dizziness and a rundown feeling are common as well. These symptoms can lead to asthma especially in children. Furthermore, Studies have shown that up to 12% of children with asthma developed from exposure to mold or other air pollutants.

Long term effects can show up years after exposure has occurred. Repeated exposure will only make the effects worse. Some of these effects include respiratory disease, heart disease and even cancer. It is wise to try to improve the indoor air quality in your home even if the symptoms aren’t immediately noticeable. As a result, your home will have cleaner air. Consider a residential air purifier as one tools in creating better IAQ for your home and family. The effects of indoor air pollution are even greater on the very young and old. Infants and young children have a higher breathing and heart rate and smaller bodies. Therefore they are exposed to more harmful affects.

 

Room Air Purifiers

If the usual methods of addressing indoor air pollution are insufficient, a home air purifier like the LakeAir Maxum and Excel are good choices. Portable room air cleaners like the Maxum can be used to clean the air in a single room or in specific areas. They are not intended to filter the air in the whole house. A residential air purifier is a great part of your IAQ home protection plan.
