    9. 9. Recent Market Survey Primary reason for purchasing an Air Purifier
    10. 10. Where we are today….. <ul><li>Passive Technologies </li></ul>
    11. 11. Passive Technologies <ul><li>Filtering </li></ul><ul><li>Ionization … </li></ul><ul><li>a misunderstood </li></ul><ul><li>technology </li></ul><ul><li>Electronic Air “Cleaners” </li></ul><ul><li>UV Lights … issue with distance from UV bulb and exposure time </li></ul><ul><li>Portable units …small rooms, inefficient, ineffective, & costly to operate </li></ul>
    12. 12. Passive Technologies Common problems… <ul><li>Impossible for ALL the air to get to them! </li></ul><ul><li>Filters & plates become constant source of pollution, high maintenance, cost and have limited effect on VOCs, odors, bacteria, viruses, mold & mildew </li></ul><ul><li>How is mold, mildew, bacteria, viruses, odors removed on surfaces inside a room? </li></ul><ul><li>UV lights only work on surfaces… </li></ul><ul><li>NOT effectively on moving air! </li></ul><ul><li>Ventilating is extremely expensive & limited in it’s effectiveness </li></ul><ul><li>If these methods really worked, </li></ul><ul><li>why is the problem not solved? </li></ul>
    13. 13. The better solution to IAQ problems….. <ul><li>Active Technology </li></ul>
    14. 14. Nature’s Way… …to purify the air we breathe <ul><li>Ionization to reduce particle concentrations </li></ul><ul><li>Oxidation to reduce mold, bacteria, virus and VOC’s </li></ul>Automatic, Proactive & Self-regulating!
    15. 15. EcoQuest’s 20 Year History….
    16. 16. 1986: Ozone / Ion Technology <ul><li>Thunderstorm in a Box! </li></ul>
    17. 17. Ozone & Ion Technology <ul><li>Ozone reduces odors and VOC’s including mold, bacteria & virus. Ozone is effective even at low levels </li></ul><ul><li>Fresh Air technology incorporates 2 forms of Ionization: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Needlepoint - 2M ions/cu cm </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“RF Ionizer Effect” produced by an electromagnetic pulse to excite particles inducing a charge and reducing particles. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ions are charged particles which travel out into the environment, charging particulate in the air, which then attracts oppositely charged particles, allowing them to gain sufficient mass to be filtered or fall to the ground. </li></ul></ul>
    18. 18. Why are we concerned about particles?
    19. 19. 97% Of Weight ( 28+52+11+6= 97%) But not a big health threat ! But 98.5 % Of Particle Count is < 0.5 um A big health threat Don’t Be Fooled ! It’s the “ Small Sizes” < 0.5 um that are Numerous & Dangerous ! 300-400 million/m3 Typical Air Particle Size Distribution 98.5 Most filter mfgs. spec their product on “weight” not “count”.
    20. 20. For 18 years EcoQuest has been the leader in Active Air Purification using: <ul><li>Ozone </li></ul><ul><li>Needlepoint Ionization </li></ul><ul><li>Remote Particle Reduction </li></ul>In 2004 EcoQuest added a Breakthrough Technology
    21. 21. “ Radiant Catalytic Ionization” Then we added the power of the Sun!
    22. 22. Broad spectrum UV lamp Quad-metallic Hydrophilic coating $500 per gallon RCI Cell Honeycomb Matrix for maximum surface area
    23. 23. The Lamp … no ordinary UV Bulb! <ul><li>Broad Spectrum High Efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>100-300 nm </li></ul><ul><li>25,000 hours = 3 years! </li></ul>RCI UV
    24. 24. Germicidal UV (254 nm) 254 nano meter
    25. 25. Germicidal UV (254 nm) <ul><li>Effectiveness is dependent upon distance, intensity and exposure time </li></ul>
    26. 26. 254nm UV Activates the Catalyst Photoelectric Effect : The conversion of light to electricity
    27. 27. The Catalyst Hydrophilic Coating “ Hydrophilic” – means the coating absorbs water vapor (H2O) from the air, creating an abundance of Hydrogen and Oxygen for creation of friendly oxidizers Optimum Humidity is 40-60%
    28. 28. The Catalyst Quad-metallic Hydrophilic Catalytic Coating Titanium Dioxide, X, Y, Z <ul><li>Each metal contributes to process: </li></ul><ul><li>Titanium Dioxide forms two highly reactive substances - Hydroxyl Radicals (OH) & Superoxide Ions (O2-1) - both very strong oxidizers </li></ul><ul><li>X converts Nitric Oxide to Nitrogen and Oxygen </li></ul><ul><li>Y speeds up the Titanium reactions by up to 3X. Proven to kill bacteria. </li></ul><ul><li>Z has unique abilities to work with Hydrogen and can improve the functions of Titanium. Also, helps eliminates algae. </li></ul>
    29. 29. 185 nm UV produces ozone 185 nm Ozone
    30. 30. 254 nm decomposition of ozone 254 nm 254 nm breaks O 3 back down to O 2
    31. 31. 0 OH O 3 - 0 OH O 3 - O 2 OH- H 2 O 2 - O 2 - AOP formation of “ Friendly Oxidizers” These oxidizers are then picked up in the air stream and dispersed throughout the building … ACTIVELY purifying contaminants! Broad Spectrum UV Light Hydroxyl Radicals 0 OH Hydroxides OH- Super Oxides O 2 - Hydrogen Peroxide H 2 O 2 Ozonide Ions O 3 - Ozone O 3 OH- H 2 O 2 O 3 O 3
    32. 32. <ul><li>The RCI cell produces and consumes ozone (O 3 ) to facilitate the AOP reactions. Typically 90% of the ozone produced is decomposed in process. </li></ul><ul><li>The RCI cell is NOT an ozone generator, (emits ≤ .02 PPM Ozone), in fact can help regulate O 3 levels. </li></ul><ul><li>Provides redundancy of oxidizers which react up to 40x faster than ozone alone & without irritation. </li></ul><ul><li>AOP reactants remain effective after leaving cell as a “Purifying Plasma”… dispersed throughout the building ACTIVELY purifying contaminants. </li></ul><ul><li>Starts by continuously sanitizing the duct system & eventually comes back thru to keep coils clean. </li></ul>RCI Cell advantages
    33. 33. <ul><li>University Testing </li></ul><ul><li>_____________________________________________________________ </li></ul><ul><li>Kansas State University: </li></ul><ul><li>Dr. James Marsden, Regents Distinguished Professor </li></ul><ul><li>Microbial reduction on Surfaces (Mold, Bacteria & Virus) </li></ul><ul><li>University of Cincinnati: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Dr. Sergey Grinshpun, Department Head, Center for Health-Related Aerosol Studies, Department of Environmental Health </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Reduction of the Aerosol Particle Concentration </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Airborne Microbial reduction (Virus) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Syracuse University: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Prof. Jianshun Zhang, Director, International Centre for Indoor Environment and Energy </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Airborne VOC Reductions in simulated HVAC system </li></ul></ul></ul>
