Operation of the Euromate air cleaner proven by independent research

A recent study by the renowned Finnish research institute VTT has shown that our VisionAir Blue Line is effective against the corona virus. This research has been validated by the Dutch independent research organization TNO.

Viruses such as COVID-19 cannot spread themselves. For this they need a carrier such as an aerosol, which is emitted by people who talk, cough and breathe, among other things.

Based on the filter efficiency and the aerosol sizes that may contain the SARS-CoV-2 (corona) virus, it has been concluded that the tested air cleaner traps the virus. This reduces the aerosol concentration that may contain the virus in a room during system operation.

Most holidays are over and now that it is almost September, many people have to go back to work. However, the corona crisis is still very topical. As a result, many will have to work from home and come to the office occasionally or in shifts, for example for meetings or because the position requires this.

More and more information is becoming available about studies regarding the spread of the virus. This indicates the essential importance of good indoor air. When you go back to the office, do you know what’s floating around in the air there? You may not be aware of it, but it is very important. For example, the air contains bacteria and fine particles that can make you sick. And now there is also the COVID-19 virus. Read more…

BLOG: Evidence is important to avoid a false sense of security in times of COVID-19.

Since the beginning of 2020 we have been dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. While initially, there was still a lot of uncertainty about the virus, the infections and the spread, now more and more research results of studies on those topics are being published.

Based on our mission that clean indoor air is a substantial right for everyone, we believe it is important that people are properly informed. With the help of correct information, a false sense of security can be prevented. We therefore recommend that you request an independent research report about the operation of that particular solution before purchasing the product. Read more…

BLOG: What is ventilation?

Ventilation or air exchange is the replacement of the air in a room, which is polluted or polluted for whatever reason, with clean air. Replacing the air can be done naturally or mechanically.

An air change is the replacement of 100% of the air in a room with fresh air. When we talk about two air changes per hour, we mean that twice an hour 100% of the air is replaced by fresh air. This is also called a ventilation rate of two. Read more…
