EMF Technology Traps & Kills Up to 100% of All Germs
SINGAPORE, 23 November 2007 — While most people are aware of pollutants present in the outdoor environment and their detrimental health effects, good indoor air quality is becoming increasingly important as people spend more time in enclosed air-conditioned environments. Air-conditioning and ventilation systems generally allow only a restricted amount of fresh air to be introduced into confined environments, hence causing the levels of indoor pollutants to become more concentrated.
Indoor chemical and biological contaminants in the air can cause Sick Building Syndrome, a situation whereby indoor occupants experience symptoms that include headache, fatigue, eye, nose and throat irritation and nausea. Sufferers of respiratory illnesses like asthma and emphysema are even more susceptible to airborne particles like dust, fungi and mould lurking in any indoor environment. Good air quality management can improve Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) — the quality of air and environment inside buildings — and help to ease such effects.
HealthWay™ EMF Air Purification Systems is the world’s first and only air purification system with EMF technology, which was developed with the U.S. Department of Defence in a research study focused on countering germ warfare. Unlike most conventional filtering systems, EMF filters not only trap airborne particles, but are tested and proven to kill up to 100 per cent of viruses, bacteria, mould and fungi. This is achieved through the patented revolutionary system, which is able to create a high energy field that raises the efficiency of the media filter to 99.97% at 0.3 microns, surpassing all other types of filtration.
Used in clean room manufacturing processes where the air has to be chemical-free, EMF technology is available for homes, offices, hotels, hospitals and factories today. The HealthWay™ EMF Air Purification System is listed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a Class II Medical Device and is recognised as the world’s most advanced medical grade air cleaning system. Its accolades include the U.S. NASA Technology 2005 SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) Award and the U.S. National Research and Development Award.
Mr. Vincent Lobdell Jr., Vice-President of HealthWay™, said, “The effectiveness of our product can be proven with our real-time particle counters to show reduction of airborne pollutants. We therefore aim to provide an improved quality of life, with cleaner and fresher air, especially for people who suffer from allergies and respiratory diseases.”
Now offered in Singapore for both commercial and residential use, HealthWay™ EMF Air Purification Systems are exclusively distributed by Singapore’s premier indoor environmental solutions specialists, IEQ Global Pte Ltd. Presenting a complete state-of-the-art spectrum of environmental engineering solutions, the company is a one-stop provider of services and products that address Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) requirements of customers.
Mr. Jeffrey Tang, Managing Director of IEQ Global Pte Ltd said, “We are pleased to introduce this product to Singapore, in line with the government’s campaign for a clean and green environment. This is also in line with our mission to champion the adoption of a sustainable and greener lifestyle through environmentally-friendly means.”
HealthWay™ EMF Air Purification Systems emit the cleanest air possible without releasing any potentially harmful substances such as oxygen radicals (OH) and oxidizing agents. Ozone is listed by the U.S. Environment Protection Agency and Singapore’s National Environmental Agency as a dangerous contaminant for human exposure. Therefore, the system can aid in attaining good IEQ, an essential component of a Green Building.
