Better breathing with novoflow air purifiers:
Effective filter technologies for a pleasant indoor climate
Air filters play a crucial role in improving indoor air quality. They can help remove pollutants such as dust, pollen, mold spores, and even viruses from the air. When choosing an air filter, it's important to consider the size of the room and the airflow of the filter. A filter that is too small won't be able to sufficiently clean the air in the room, while one that is too large may consume unnecessary energy.
There is a variety of air filters on the market that use different filter technologies. Among them are HEPA filters, activated carbon filters, and UV-C filters. HEPA filters are particularly effective at removing particles from the air and can even filter out bacteria and viruses. Activated carbon filters are well-suited for removing odors and chemicals from the air. UV-C filters can kill bacteria and viruses by exposing them to UV light. Our air purifier, the NF-A9plus, combines all of these filters, making it perfect for all applications.
UV-C radiation: Highly effective against germs, viruses, and proven over the long term
UV-C devices are considered safe when they meet the requirements of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and the standards of Underwriters Laboratories (UL) for electrical, thermal, mechanical aspects, human exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF), and photobiological safety. UV-C radiation in the range between 200 nm-280 nm has been successfully and safely used for over 70 years, for example, in hospitals for disinfection purposes.
UV-C for home use: Only in a closed system
TÜV SÜD therefore recommends consumers who wish to purchase a UV-C device for disinfection to only use devices with a closed system. These air purification products have a solid casing that reliably shields UV-C radiation, thereby protecting people and animals in the vicinity from radiation exposure. Using a fan, the air circulates through the sterilization unit and is disinfected by a UV-C emitter. The outgoing air can be up to 99.9% germ-free.
