HEPAir X100 Research Results

HEPAir X100 has undergone testing in the bedrooms of children who have physician-diagnosed asthma. Research results have been published in two peer-reviewed journals and have been presented at several international indoor air quality technical conferences.

The studies show that the unit improves indoor air quality by removing and reducing the kinds of pollutants that may trigger respiratory irritations and can exacerbate the symptoms of asthma. These include ultra-fine airborne particulates from cooking, sneezing and animal dander that drift around in the air for hours and are easily stirred up with a minimum amount of activity.

A second category of contaminants that HEPAir X100 addresses are gaseous compounds like carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide as well as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like formaldehyde. The VOCs are mostly by-products of chemicals used in fuels and building materials such as plastics and paint. Even a computer contains hundreds of components that are made from organic compounds that will continuously release VOCs over time.

The chart below shows how, in laboratory testing, HEPAir X00 quickly reduced particle, gas and indoor allergen concentrations that are known to trigger asthmatic conditions.
