Frequently Asked Questions
ARE FROUMANN AIR CLEANING SYSTEMS SUITABLE FOR HOME USE?
Froumann Air Cleaning Systems provide clean air in all indoor areas. Our models’ area of use range from 100 m2 to 330 m2. They can and also need to be used at home by choosing the appropriate model according to your house’s square meter size.
ARE FROUMANN AIR CLEANING SYSTEMS EFFECTIVE AGAINST CORONA VIRUS AND OTHER VIRUSES?
It has been proven that appropriately utilized HEPA filter air cleaning systems remove viruses from the ambient air. It is known that the size of viruses is between 0.1 and 0.3 microns. The Covid 19 virus size is 0.2 microns in diameter, but its size reaches around 0.3 microns due to its spread by attaching to bioaerosols released through breathing. It is shown that high-efficiency HEPA filters remove 99% of particles of 0.3-micron size. Also, the NASA Space Agency’s study on the particle retention efficiency of HEPA filters in 2016 proved that HEPA filters could retain even 0.01-micron nanoparticles with 99% efficiency. Thanks to the H14 medical-grade high-efficiency filters used in Froumann Air Cleaning Systems, it cleans the ambient air’s microbial load, including viruses and bacteria, and creates a safe breathing space.
Froumann Professional Air Purifiers are also the world’s only purifiers whose efficacy in the combat against Covid-19 has been shown in independent studies conducted with real SARS-CoV-2 viruses.
WHAT IS PROFESSIONAL AIR PURIFICATION SYSTEM?
Thanks to the specially developed multi-filter system used in its design, the systems clean the air from all harmful bacteria, viruses, dust, chemical air pollutants, and unpleasant odors. Froumann Air Purification Systems reduce the air’s microbial load by 99% by using high HEPA filter technology.
WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE FROUMANN AIR PURIFICATION SYSTEM?
Air velocity through the filter is a critical design parameter in air purification devices. Froumann Air Cleaning Systems ensure the HEPA Filter’s efficient operation with the right filter and motor selection. True HEPA filters in correct sizes are used for adequate filtering, which are suitable for the device’s capacity. With the design made with CFD analysis, the linear flow has been achieved within the devices, thus ensuring equal air passage through all parts of the HEPA filter and increasing the filter area’s efficiency.
DO FROUMANN AIR PURIFICATION SYSTEMS REDUCE THE RISK OF ASTHMA AND ALLERGIES?
Especially in the spring, people sensitive to natural triggers such as tree pollen, mold spores, and greenery are more susceptible to these factors. Chest wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and cough are common symptoms that occur during asthma and allergy attack. By using Froumann air purification systems in covered areas, breathing clean air will reduce such symptoms and the risk of asthma and allergies.
WHAT ARE INDOOR AIR POLLUTANTS?
Indoor air quality generally decreases due to internal and external pollution factors, and inhalation becomes dangerous. Outdoor pollution sources can include busy streets, bus terminals, parking lots adjacent to buildings, train stations, airports, manufacturing, industry, agricultural areas, and many more. Outdoor pollutants affect indoor air quality. Also, unmaintained air conditioning systems, office, construction materials, photocopiers, laser printers, detergent and cleaning materials, sprays, and cigarette smoke turn into particulate and gaseous pollutants indoors.
WHICH ARE THE HEALTH PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH POOR AIR QUALITY?
According to the information published by the World Health Organization, the risk of respiratory diseases such as stroke, heart disease, lung cancer, and asthma can be reduced by breathing cleaner air. Air purifiers remove pollutants from the air, thereby significantly decreasing bad indoor air and respiratory health effects. Nowadays, we spend a long time in closed places such as open offices, shops, shopping malls, hairdressers. According to studies, we suffer from performance loss, fatigue, allergic diseases and frequent flu diseases due to our environment’s poor air quality. In our living spaces where air pollution is increasing, breathing fresh air is of great importance for our quality of life and health.
DOES IT INCREASE THE OXYGEN (O2) AMOUNT OF THE ENVIRONMENT?
Indoor air cleaning systems clean the air by filtering and returning the air to the environment, but they do not give additional oxygen to the environment.
WHAT IS THE EFFECTIVENESS OF FROUMANN DEVICES COMPARED TO AIR PURIFIERS WITH UVC LAMPS?
To inactivate viruses, bacteria, and other microorganisms with a UV-C lamp, it is necessary to use a UV-C light of the appropriate wavelength (230-280 nm), which can kill the target microorganism; apply this lamp on the microorganism from a short distance and for sufficient time. Since airflow in air purification devices, UV lamps used in the devices cannot affect viruses, bacteria, and other microorganisms for a sufficient time. Therefore, air cleaning devices with UV lamps do not affect. Also, UV-C lights interact with the air and emit O3 (ozone), and it is a known fact that ozone is hazardous because it has a toxic effect on the lungs. It is very critical that the light does not leak out in devices with UV-C lamps. In the case of light leakage from the device and human exposure, UV-C light causes skin cancer. In the handbook (Guidelines for Environmental Infection Control in Health-Care Facilities) published by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDS), the recommended air cleaning method to prevent the spread of diseases is using HEPA filters.
We believe that access to clean air is a basic yet essential Human Right.
