MicroGuardian Air Scrubber PCO
The MicroGuardian Air Scrubber is a high tech state of the art Air Purifier. It incorporates Advanced PCO (Photocatalytic Oxidation) Technology. Originally PCO technology was developed by NASA for deep space missions
The PCO Technology Provides a safe and efficient way to remove toxins from the air. This Technology has been approved by the FDA for many years as a way to reduce bacteria in food processing plants and is also used to clean pesticides from vegetables and fruits. The actual cleaning process involves a ultra violet light source enclosed by a a magnetic structure coated with Titanium Dioxide. This results is a catalytic process that turns harmful particulates and toxic gases into safer water and carbon dioxide.
Because this process is such a powerful purification method, it can eliminate particles as small as 0.001 microns. This means tiny particles that could be absorbed into the lungs and cause damage are eliminated.
Why Would We Need Such a Device in Our Homes?
Newer homes are built air tight to increase the efficiency of the heating and air conditioning systems. While this makes us more comfortable, it comes a a price and that price is air quality. A build up of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) can occur. The concentration of these VOCs can be 10 times greater in the home then in the outside air. In these concentrations the following health issues can occur:
- Eye, nose and throat irritation
- Headaches, loss of coordination and nausea
- Damage to liver, kidney and central nervous system
- Some organics can cause cancer in animals, some are suspected or known to cause cancer in humans.
