Press Release (ePRNews.com) - DORAVILLE, Ga. - Apr 13, 2020 - Purafil, a leader in gas phase and air filtration for over 50 years, leads the way with innovations to capture and eliminate toxic and harmful gases, viruses and bacteria. As concerns surrounding viruses and bacteria increase, Purafil has engineered a new line of multi-layered air scrubbers that destroys certain viruses and bacteria on contact.
As the world combats the virus with facemasks and personal protective equipment (PPE), we must also consider other factors that could impact the spread. One such factor is air quality. Harvard Medical School states that COVID-19 infectious viral particles can float or drift around in the air for up to three hours (COVID-19 Basics, HMS) making air filtration an important component in this fight.
Tony Querciagrossa, President of Purafil Inc., explains that “Purafil’s air scrubbers quickly and effectively remove harmful viruses, bacteria and mold by utilizing multi-stage filtration. Our filters utilize a combination of particulate filtration, patented antimicrobial chemical filtration through oxidization and HEPA filtration with Puraward fiber (PWF) technology to destroy bacteria and viruses on contact.”
PWF is a high-efficiency fiber embedded with copper and silver ions that have the antimicrobial properties to kill targeted viruses and bacteria.1 It has been successfully applied to air filters, textiles, facemasks, and equipment.
Purafil’s line of air filtration equipment comes in a range of sizes and airflows, suitable for hospitals and medical facilities, laboratories, office buildings, and educational institutions. They destroy up to 99.98% of certain viruses and bacteria for more efficient and complete removal.1
