StaticAir captures fine dust based on a number of unique patents. In recent years, multiple products have been developed for both indoor
and outdoor environment. StaticAir’s fine dust reduction systems are easy to use and have a very low energy requirement. Dozens of field tests have been executed while developing the products. This has given a lot of insight in caputuring fine dust and the configuration of this fine dust reduction systems. StaticAir is a part of Mark Climate Technology. Mark is specialized in indoor climate control and has more than 70 years of international experience. On Italian market the solution is distributed by is Raet (more infos here).
Fine dust is a form of air pollution. Dust particles smaller than 10 micrometers (0.01 mm) are classified as fine dust. These fine dust particles can differ in size, origin and chemical composition. Based on the size, fine dust is referred to as PM10, PM2.5, or PM0.1 (ultra-fine dust). The composition of fine dust can be very variable. Common components of fine dust include metals, carbon (soot), salt and nitrate.
Because of the harmful effects on people’s health, the European Union and the World Health Organization have set limit values for fine dust (PM10 and PM2.5). These limit values are exceeded in many places. For example, along busy roads, industrial areas and cattle farms. Also in the indoor environment, in many workshops a dangerous high concentration of fine dust arises through work processes.
The StaticAir FDRS (Fine Dust Reduction System) reduces fine dust in the direct environment. The FDRS contains corona wires to which a positive high voltage is applied. It operates on a direct current with a low amperage. The technology of StaticAir is tested safe for humans and animals. The fine dust in the environment of the FDRS is ionized by the charge of the corona wires and is attracted to a grounded frame in the FDRS. Due to the corona operation, an electric wind is created from the corona wire to the grounded frame. This electric wind ensures that the fine dust is attracted and deposited on the grounded frame, without the use of ventilation.
The FDRS can reduce up to 50% in the interior with just 18 watts.The power supply takes place via the normal electricity grid. The FDRS is unique in capturing fine dust in an economical and sustainable way. StaticAir’s fine dust reduction systems have been extensively tested in various environments and conditions. The operation has been validated by independent third parties. In collaboration with the
Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment, TNO, Delft University of Technology, municipality and province, significant fine dust reduction has been demonstrated in the tunnel environment, the outdoor environment and the laboratory. Furthermore, StaticAir has years of experience in fine dust reduction activities in various environments in Europe and worldwide.
