Airfree destroys rather than holds viruses



The power of the 180-200ºC heat in the Airfreeceramic core mini ducts to destroy viruses
 
Airfree is a complementary precaution to keep a low level of microorganisms in indoor environments.
WHO’s standard recommendations for individual protection, reducing exposure and cross transmission are to be followed.
 
 
Why Airfree?
It has long been known and scientifically proven that all microorganisms,
viruses in particular, are sensitive to heat. It is common knowledge that
boiling water or boiling an egg at 100ºC destroys viruses and bacteria.



Examples of virus inactivation by heat
Numerous studies confirm the inactivation of viruses with the application of heat. For example, the HIV virus in the blood will die when exposed to 77°C for just 0.006 seconds¹. In another study², the “parvovirus” and “phage phiX174” viruses were completely inactivated when exposed to 103°C. The SARS and MERS viruses (coronaviruses that cause Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome or Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) have temperature sensitive proteins in their envelopes, which can be totally denatured at temperatures above 65°C, and remain inactive⁵C. Similarly, proteins essential for the transmission of the influenza virus are sensitive to temperatures between 55°C and 70°C⁶



Airfree TSS technology
The Airfree TSS technology employs high temperatures inside its ceramic core mini ducts to destroy any airborne
microorganism passing through them. Independent tests by international laboratories confirm Airfree’s efficiency in
destroying viruses, bacteria, mould, as well as allergens at a temperature of 180-200ºC. Tests available at

The studies on viruses’ inactivation by heat, all point to temperatures well below the Airfree’s ceramic core mini ducts
internal temperature of 180-200ºC. Since 1977, studies show that the higher the temperature, the faster the proteins
denature.
