Respirator cartridge UV Adapter
The A.I.R. Duo is a patent-pending set of UV adapters which attach to common filter cartridges for any commercially available respirator mask. This cover is integrated with LEDs which emit ultraviolet (UV) light. The function of the Duo is to aid in sterilization of air being inhaled to and exhaled out of the respirator mask. The irradiation of the light utilizes photons to disinfect inhaled air. UV light damages a pathogen’s DNA or RNA, which prevents it from replicating and infecting the body if inhaled. While the main function of the invention is air sterilization, the secondary function is to sterilize the fabric filter itself. The light is oriented in a way that the filter has a long exposure to the UV light which disinfects and kills biological material trapped in the filter material. More Details COMING SOON.
