Dometic Marine, the world leading supplier of marine air conditioning, launches the new portable Breathe Easy(TM)Air Purifier to UK boat owners at the London International Boat Show. Suitable for boats and yachts of all sizes, the unit provides an easy and cost-effective solution to eliminate unpleasant cabin odours and airborne contaminants onboard such as mould spores, bacteria and fumes.
Priced at just £199.00 including VAT, the compact and lightweight Breathe Easy(TM)Air Purifier can be installed in any cabin and has been proven to reduce volatile organic compounds (VOC) by 57% and formaldehyde(1) levels by 41% within a six hour period. The solution uses unique Photocatalytic Nano-Mesh technology(2) to clean and transform airborne contaminants, providing fresher and healthier air onboard. The air purifier is powered by 12V DC or 115V/ 230V via a transformer that is included with the product as standard.
(1) Formaldehyde is contained in building materials including carpeting, curtains, plywood and adhesives and is known to deteriorate quality of air.

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 product which performed exceptionally well during our stringent test phase. The unit is perfect for cleaning cabin air, whether the boat is on the water or has been in storage for a weekend or winter."

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.
