Filtration for better health

The air we breathe is a mixture of gasses including nitrogen, oxygen, water, carbon dioxide and trace gases. Each day we inhale around ten kilos of air. If this air contains pollutants, we inhale them into our bodies and they can affect our health. So to protect people's health and the environment, we need air filtration and air pollution controls systems to keep indoor and outdoor air clean.

Air filtration protects human health and improves productivity

Air, like water, is essential to life and concerns about poor indoor air quality are driving research about air filtration and its beneficial effects on people and productivity.

Studies around the world indicate an increased risk for cardiovascular problems, including heart and stroke deaths, in relation to short- and long-term exposure to concentrations of air pollution, especially particulate matter. Examples are particulates generated from vehicle emissions and tire fragmentation, which can enter indoor spaces through mechanical ventilation systems, deposit in the lungs when breathed, enter the bloodstream and move to other organs. Gas or molecular pollution can also penetrate beyond the lungs.

This pollution in breathing air has also been linked directly to increases in respiratory symptoms, use of medication, asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Recent investigations have also shed light on the costs and health advantages of particle filtration in office buildings. The estimated reductions in mortality, morbidity and productivity losses indicate that the overall economic and social benefits of using particle air filtration are several times larger than the associated running costs. The most important financial gain is fewer lost work days and higher productivity.
