HVAC systems specialist Dometic Marine launches the new Breathe Easy(TM) Air Purifier to the European commercial marine market at this year's Seawork International. Suitable for vessels of all sizes, the Breathe Easy(TM) Air Purifier provides an easy and cost-effective solution to reduce unpleasant airborne odours and contaminants onboard including mould spores, mildew, bacteria, chemical and toilet fumes.
The technologically advanced and quiet system is available in two models for installation into any space onboard. The compact and lightweight portable unit is suitable for individual cabin spaces and the in-line ductable unit, is fitted directly into the vessel's air conditioning system to purifiy larger spaces. The Breathe Easy(TM) Air Purifier is proven to reduce volatile organic compounds (VOC) by 57% and formaldehyde levels by 41% within a six hour period. The solution uses unique Photocatalytic Nano-Mesh technology to clean and transform airborne contaminants, providing fresher and healthier air onboard.
The Breathe Easy(TM) unit received a Special Mention at the prestigious DAME Awards 2009, which was held during Europe's key marine equipment trade show, METS. Paul Hickinbotham, Director of Sales & Operations, Dometic Marine UK, comments: "The new Breathe Easy(TM) Air Purifier is a high quality, cost-effective system which performed exceptionally well during our stringent test phase. The unit is perfect for cleaning air anywhere onboard the vessel, from the pilot house through to crew cabins."

About the Technology
The Photocatalytic Nano-Mesh is constructed of metalized foam. This minutely intricate structure provides 2200% more surface area for holding the molecular catalytic coating than is possible with a simple screen structure. In addition, through the science of nanotechnology, the titanium-dioxide catalyst is restructured at the molecular level to have an increased number of contact surfaces. This provides 70% more atoms on the catalytic surface for improved reactivity with contaminants.
The metalized foam structure and the catalyst's nanotechnology create maximum photocatalytic activation for more thorough purification of air. This means fresher, cleaner and healthier air onboard. The system has been proven to reduce volatile organic compounds (VOC), by 57% and formaldehyde levels (contained in building materials including carpeting, curtains, plywood and adhesives and known to deteriorate quality of air) by 41% within a six hour period.
