More and more environmental influences such as the largely overcome COVID 19 pandemic, viruses, pollen, bacteria and fine dust particles are increasingly affecting the lives and health of people worldwide.
Many suffer from irritation of the respiratory tract, breathing difficulties and even severe bronchial and lung problems.
These are caused by viruses, but also by allergic reactions to pollen, grass and pollutants in the ambient air. The IDE HEPA fine dust filter unit made of high-strength stainless steel is used to filter out particles such as viruses, bacteria, pollen and toxic, pathogenic or radioactive dust.
These pollutants are removed by the standard suction filters and the dryer filters of standard breathing air compressors not filtered out.
Just imagine you get an allergic coughing fit at a depth of 25m!!
5 years ago we have started to provide allergy sufferers with an adequate system to avoid allergic reactions.
We also dealt with UV light, as it has been used for room and water disinfection for decades and has recently been propagated by a manufacturer as the novelty "B VIRUS FREE". The clean breathing air is not just about viruses.
Since these UV light systems cannot filter out allergy-causing pollen, bacteria and fine dust to give allergy sufferers security, we have UV light disinfection as a unsuitable and unsafe means for that purpose, and turned to the development of effective filtration.
The High Pressure IDE HEPA Particulate Filter filters the compressed air after compression up to 430 bar and is installed after the standard dryer filter system. The various filter inserts ensure the filtration of particle sizes from 3 µm - 1 µm - 0.01 µm. For comparison: The smallest virus is 0.015 to 0.4 µm in size, a bacterium is 0.3 to 0.1 µm in size, pollen is usually 20 to 50 µm in size.
It quickly becomes clear that the IDE HEPA filter is the safest and only method to completely and safely filter out the pollutants from the compressed breathing air.
In diving in particular, as history has shown, allergic reactions can cause problems ranging from moderate impairment to serious diving accidents.
Within seconds, the mucous membranes can swell so much that pressure equalization is no longer possible. Difficulty breathing, coughing, sneezing or seizures can completely discourage or even prohibit you from practicing this unique sport.
At the time, we would never have dreamed that we were well prepared for the COVID 19 pandemic.
IDE- Compressors was the first manufacturer to develop the IDE-DIVE-HEPA-AIR filter in 2014 and to offer it in its systems. At that time, little attention was paid to them, today they are becoming more and more necessary and an absolute must for providers of pure breathing air.
