Nanopurifiers – a new generation of air purifiers

How do nanopurifiers work?

Polluted air flows in the nanopurifier continuously through a set of photocatalytic filters.
Filters of this type completely decompose toxic gases, microorganisms, such as bacteria and viruses, mold and other contaminants of organic type.

What is photocatalysis?

Photocatalysis is the natural decomposition of certain substances by the action of light in the presence of a catalyst. The catalyst does not change and it is not consumed during the reaction.
The final products of the reaction are common and stable compounds, mostly water vapor and carbon dioxide. All micro-organisms like algae and fungi behave similarly.
This means that using photocatalysis will purify the air completely using only the action of light. See the principle of photocatalysis here: (link to image photo ...)

Photocatalytic Filter

Photocatalytic filter is subject of patent protection in the Czech Republic and in Europe.
Filters in nanopurifiers are made of special metal slats which are covered in a titanium dioxide-based photoactive substance.

What makes these nanopurifiers different from the commonly sold purifiers?

The nanopurifier has a photoactive filter that does not require any maintenance or cleaning.
The nanopurifier does not catch dust and dirt like other purifiers whose filters have to be washed from the dust and dirt, cleaned and changed.
Decomposition of harmful chemical substances and disposal of bacteria and viruses occurs in the interior of the nanopurifier.

Nanoaircleaner nanopurifiers are made from natural materials like solid wood, art glass fusing, mirror glass, canvas without harmful binders and ceramic tiles. Nanopurifiers are able to dispose of substances in the room more effectively thanks to the absence of plastic parts that exude chemical substances.

The benefits of Nanoaircleaner air purifiers 

• Disposal – the decomposition of harmful substances confirmed by repeated measurements in different laboratories, the nanopurifier is proven to dispose of:
• bacteria
• viruses
• mold
• microscopic dust
• formaldehyde
• toluene
• phthalates
• Very silent operation – 10 dB (on silent mode)
• Minimal maintenance – filters do not need to be changed
• Several kinds of purifiers made from natural materials (wood, glass, canvas, ceramics)
• Photoactive nano-filter covers a large area where the decomposition of harmful substances occurs
• Simple operation and maintenance 

The system of photocatalysis is based on the action of UVA radiation on TiO2, Zn, Ag, its various uses are known worldwide for over 30 years and the patented system of RETAP s.r.o. is currently unique and aimed at a healthy environment in living rooms.

This phenomenon makes use of the action of UVA radiation on a special layer of titanium oxide that is tightly attached to aluminum slats. Photocatalysis occurs by bringing the air into the system of slats with exposure to UVA light. Substances in solid state, i.e., viruses, bacteria, fungi, and in gaseous state, i.e., formaldehyde, toluene, nitrous oxides, are decomposed during photocatalysis to carbon dioxide CO2 and water without the need for any other filters.

The filter unit can fit in any cleaning unit, but also in local heating units, made from wood, metal, glass, also glass side lamps, table lamps, radiators, etc.

Development of nanopurifiers will end at the beginning of the second half of 2016 and RETAP s.r.o., the owner of the patent and certificate, will begin the initial series of products assembled with photocatalytic filter.

For your information, RETAP is a member of the Czech Society for Applied Photocatalysis which deals with the issues of nanotechnology from the perspective of the liquidation of harmful substances in the air and in the water.

We are currently launching our own production of purifiers and we can immediately send you more information about these products. You can follow our webpage for further information and news. We will also be glad to welcome you in our company, where you will be able to see for yourself the various designs of purifiers and where we will answer any of your questions.

Confirming the efficacy of nanocomponents for the destruction of bacteria, yeasts and fungi

We bring you a report from the measurement of the effectiveness of nanocurtures from the Institute of Clinical Microbiology from Hradec Králové. When measuring the efficiency of bacteria, mold and virus destruction, Nanočističek proved:

After 3 hours of Nanoaircleaner work, the overall concentration of bacteria in the air decreased by 66% in the normal operation of the office (including office activity including opening and closing of doors, movement of students and clinic staff), the total yeast and mold concentration in the air dropped by 71%.

For the purpose of efficiency testing, a glass version of Nanoaircleaner wood nanoparticles has been produced, which is more likely to trigger a cleaner. This option will soon be included in our e-shop.
