Testing DMV for effectiveness on silica dust control.
Testing for effective capturing of sub-micron dust particles from an airstream:
Testing HUMIGATOR for effectiveness on removing bacteria and mold from indoor air:
Ongoing studies as of January 2018 by Dr. Peter Sheridan, microbiologist at Idaho State University in cooperation with Idaho Hydro Tech have proven successful removal of bacteria and mold spores from room air. The study continues on with additional funding to find the effectiveness of this new technology, called a Humigator, for the removal of viruses and allergens. This is a breakthrough improvement over HEPA filtration that is only effective in intercepting particles as small as 3/10 of a micron. This new method eliminates the problem of filter plugging and the continuous deterioration of airflow and performance of the best known filtration technologies. Viruses are 1/10 the size of bacteria that, with few exceptions are as small as 3/10 of a single micron. Success in the interception of viruses will provide a significant improvement in creating healthy environments for homes, hospitals, schools and other private and public institutions.
