The Dynamo is our best 1” filter. It uses patented electronic technology to trap airborne contaminants like dust including dust mite feces, dander and pollen. The Dynamo will effectively trap particles as small as .001 microns in size. Even the best pleated filters cannot do this. Our filters also catch things like bacteria, viruses, smoke of all kinds (tobacco, automotive, cooking, fireplace) and most heavy metal particles including those created through radon decay processes.
How it Works
The DYNAMO uses electronic polarization to trap airborne contaminants like dust, dander and pollen. It effectively traps ultra fine particles as small as .001 microns, many of which can pose serious health risks. These include smoke of all types, viruses, bacteria, polonium and many other pathogens. The DYNAMO is twice as effective as a HEPA filter at this particle size level and up to 45 times as effective as even the most expensive pleated filters.
The DYNAMO has low static pressure drop, significantly better than most throwaway pleated filters. Air flows more easily through it, reducing operating costs by up to 15%.
Low Pressure Drop
A key concern for energy savings and protection of HVAC equipment is to make sure resistance to airflow is as low as it can be. ECOairflow technology was developed to provide a method to achieve superior filtration using materials that inherently have low resistance to airflow. Expensive pleated filters achieve their filtration capability by using a tight weave which has a high resistance to airflow. High resistance means that expensive pleats much be changed more frequently than other types of filters.
Our patented one-piece pad design and technology makes it easy to change pads. Just open the filter, carefully remove and discard the old pad and then drop in a new one. It’s that easy.
Save Energy and Reduce WasteThe DYNAMO has several features which add to it’s LEED compliance rating. Plastic components are partially made of recycled materials. Plastic and metal components of the filter can be recycled and the glass fiber pads can be recycled as post consumer waste.
Low air resistance coupled with low power consumption means the energy consumed within your HVAC system is up to 15% less than with many competitive filters. In a large dwelling, the savings can be considerable.
The DYNAMO excels at removing tobacco smoke, exhaust smoke, cooking smoke and other ultra fine particles from the air. Its technology captures tiny particles that just pass through non-electronic filters. The 90 minute re-circulation chart below shows how great this difference can be. At the smallest particle levels the DYNAMO is up to 45 times as effective as most pleated filters and even exceeds HEPA filters in capturing particles this small.
Radon Daughter Progeny
Radon gas poses serious health concerns to anyone exposed to it. Recently, health professionals have begun to realize the scope and seriousness of this issue. Radon is a radioactive gas found naturally in the environment. It is produced by the decay of uranium contained in soil and rock. In open spaces, it poses little health risks. When radon gas accumulates in enclosed or poorly ventilated spaces, then it becomes dangerous. High concentrations of radon are usually found in places like basements and crawl spaces because these areas are closest to the source of the gas and usually not well ventilated.
Radon gas is constantly undergoing a decay process which produces tiny particles known as radon progeny or RDP. These ultra fine particles, many of which are radioactive, can be inhaled into the lungs, where they can emit “alpha particles”. Alpha particles release small bursts of energy which are absorbed by nearby lung tissue. This results in lung cell death or damage. Damaged lung cells have the potential to result in a malignancy when they subsequently divide to reproduce themselves.
Almost 1/3 of lung cancer deaths in the US and Canada are attributable to radon exposure. The annual lung cancer death toll caused by exposure to radon is estimated at more than 20,000 annually. Radon is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer, after smoking. Since smokers are at much greater risk, there is growing evidence that a considerable number of lung cancer deaths attributed to smoking were caused by RDP.
No residential filter, including the ECOairflow Dynamo, is capable of removing radon gas. ECOairflow technology, however, has been proven, through third party testing by internationally recognized, certified radon professionals, to be capable of effectively capturing RDP. It has been shown in multiple installations to be capable of being a standalone solution for the removal of radon RDP when active soil depressurization is not possible or is cost prohibitive.
Only a radon professional can determine the optimal solution for mitigation in any given environment.Regardless of what solution is undertaken, it only makes sense to install an ECOairflow air cleaner as part of an enhanced air quality solution for your home.
