THE ELECTROMEDIA MODEL 35F(A)
INHALANT ALLERGEN REMOVAL EQUIPMENT - DESIGN INPUTS

These notes provide useful information on the design of the Electromedia product and it's inhalant allergen removal capabilities.

By way of background information, the design, from the outset, was to achieve a solution to the major problem that 'direct bronchial challenge has established that inhalation of allergens produces immediate bronchospasms and also a late and prolonged chronic inflammatory reaction within the airways, which in turn enhances bronchial hyper-responsiveness'. The product design and tests therefore targeted the total removal of the prime sensitising inhalant allergens researched for children and adults. These prime inhalant allergens fall into two distinct groups as follows:-

Group A - Solid Particulate Matter namely, house dust mites/faeces/amylase; active/passive cigarette smoke and tar.
Group B - Gases and Vapours, namely, ozone, formaldehyde, nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide.

In summary, the finalised design of the Electromedia product incorporates a patented high voltage (22.5 k.v.DC) enhanced cassette type medium which totally removes solid particulate matter in Group A above and a proprietary chemisorption medium which totally removes gases and vapours in Group B above.

Collated below are the various source documents which provide a fine focus on the research, testing and design of the above product.
