The company's HVAC experimental model will be tested against different filter regimes and scenarios to measure air quality improvements.
VANCOUVER — Atmofizer Technologies Inc. has opened its own internal research and development lab for HVAC system innovation in Toronto, Ont. where it will test its nanoparticle agglomeration technology for use in residential and commercial grade ventilation systems.
The company’s HVAC experimental model will be tested against different filter regimes and scenarios to measure air quality improvements and potential reduction of economic and environmental costs.
“Independent third-party test results have shown our patented agglomeration technology is decreasing the particle counts in the ultrafine nanoscopic range of 0.017 microns to .122 microns by 44 per cent at a rate of 1.4 liters per minute,” said Whit Pepper, president, and chief commercial officer of the company in a statement.
“For the operators of HVAC systems in homes, schools, commercial buildings, and at industrial sites, our initial testing supports the hypothesis that by making particles larger, we can make HVAC systems operate more effectively and efficiently by enabling customers to use a lower-rated MERV grade air filter, which are less expensive, and to use less air pressure, which can result in lower energy costs and less stress on ventilation system components.”
