The market for anti-pollution masks is in full swing and the number of users is rising steadily. Depending on the type of mask and its filters, the effectiveness of the anti-pollution masks vary greatly. This protection also has several disadvantages, such as the heating of the breathed air and a condensation of the sweat inside the mask.
Dr. Cristina Paunescu (from the Faculty of Pharmacy of Paris) and al. published a few days ago, in Indoor Air papers, the results of a large field study for particles pollution measurements. A study very rare in its ambition for statistically relevant data acquisition! A cohort of 96 children, aged 9 and living in Paris and suburbs, was gathered to monitor the ultrafine particles and black carbon they breathed over 24 hours of their everyday life, with portable sensors of scientific quality. The results are revealing : school and home are the places where children are the most exposed.
The air pufiers TEQOYA use a phenomenon known as ionization. The negative ions emitted by our devices are attracted by the indoor air particles and charge them positively. We have made two videos so that you can see how the Tip9 works.
Today, the team TEQOYA works together to provide you with healthy air. Discover our heritage and read our story.
This article in our series about air purification technologies concerns photocatalysis-based air purifiers. Do they keep their promises ?
