TPA Technology V HEPA Filtration:
Terminates Vs Collects:
Airdog’s TPA filtration technology not only captures harmful ultra-fine particles but the active filtration inactivates viruses including Covid-19 & Influenza virus. It also kills bacteria and fungi. HEPA is passive filtration; like a net or a hoover bag it captures particles but the bacteria and viruses which are captured are not killed or inactivated. Harmful microorganisms can survive on HEPA for a long period of time posing the possibility of secondary pollution and harm.
The term CCM (cumulative cleaning mass) means how much pollutants an air filter can capture before losing efficiency. It’s assessed by measuring the volume of particulate matter that can be efficiently filtered. CCM is graded from P1 to P4 level (for particulate matter), P4 level being the highest grade which is capturing >12,000mg before losing efficiency. Airdog filtration exceeds the P4 level, when capturing 33,000mg the cleaning efficiency of Airdog only dropped 0.2%
HEPA is passive filtration, when contaminants accumulate on the filter the CADR (clean air deliver rate) is diminished, as the filter has been blocked. Airdog’s TPA filtration technology is proven to exceed the effectiveness and efficiency of HEPA.
Airdog’s filtration is Green technology with Zero Waste. No filter replacement costs, the main filter is metal and is washable with a 10 year life span also it is recyclable at end of its life. Electric running cost is similar to that of a low powered light bulb. If considering air filtration for your organization please consider the following. If you install 10 units with HEPA filters the filter will need to be replaced twice per year (if not, you may as well not install any air filter). If including post, VAT and the inconvenience of ordering filters, let’s say a filter costs €80 that’s a cost of €1,600 per year versus ZERO cost with Airdog filtration!
Airdog’s filtration is environmentally friendly with zero waste and it is recyclable and the end of its service life. There is an exorbitant cost to our environment from HEPA filters. HEPA was developed in the 1940’s when there was no value placed on protecting our environment. HEPA is manufactured from non-recyclable material with thousands of tonnes sent to landfill ever year which will take millennia to decompose. HEPA is old technology; it’s dirty, wasteful, harmful to our environment and creates secondary pollution. In an era when we want to protect our environment, HEPA filters should not be considered when a greener and cleaner solution exists.
