Diffusion

Catalytic diffusion…a natural way to clean the air and improve your health

There is a safe and healthy way to eliminate harmful environmental toxins, allergens, off-gassing and even cancel the harmful effects of electromagnetic frequencies. The Lamp Aire catalytic sterilizing diffusers are the answer. They diffuse very potent medicinal grade formulas which heal and strengthen the body while eliminating harmful airborne contaminants through the powerful long lasting sterilization.

There are currently over 200 different styles from which to choose and 16 therapeutic fuels. These units are made of ceramic and styled to fit into your home or office decor. The units literally combust the molecules of virus, bacteria, mold and chemicals while diffusing medicinal formulas that improve your health and well being.

According to two independent testing facilities in Europe, this system is so powerful it continues to kill up to 85% of the bacteria in the air…30 hours after being turned off! Lamp Aire company had a huge opening launch in 2004, doing a half million in sales the first week in business. Winning the prestigious DICE award and taking the air cleaning industry by surprise.

One astonishing effect of the diffuser on the environment, is the cancellation of  harmful electromagnetic frequencies. When you are in close proximity to electronics, computers, cell phones, T.V.s, video games etc.,  a disturbance is created in the pineal gland in the brain.  The pineal gland is responsible for the secretion of melatonin. Melatonin regulates sleep cycles, sexual function, auto immune and many vital functions in the body. This can cause a number of moderate to severe health problems.

Since the early 1800′s, all other catalytic diffusion did and still does use harmful aroma chemicals, very high temperatures  and carcinogenic wicking systems. Multiple patents were filed for this amazing new technology which cleans the air, heals the body and is a decorative feature for home and office.

The history of catalytic diffusion;

In the 1800′s our modern antimicrobial agents were unknown.  In the 1820′s, two European chemists discovered the concept of oxidizing alcohols, using a precious metal catalytic device.  During this time period, hospitals began using catalytic diffusers to reduce problems related to infections.  Today, we know that what was actually happening was these diffusers used catalytic alcohol combustion to remove and inactivate particles in the air.  The removal or inactivation of these infectious agents from the air helped save lives, and the use of these diffusion systems grew rapidly.  As a result, many companies began making these types of products.

While this technology remained in use primarily in Europe, World War II put virtually every company that produced these types of products out of business because of the scarcity of supplies.  While companies went out of business, the technology to remove particles and unwanted chemicals from the air remained valid.

Using modern analytical techniques, today we better understand how catalytic diffusion works.  In the case of the patent pending Lamp Aire diffuser, the catalytic burner diffusion unit acts in a three prong manner.  First, the Lamp Aire diffuser evaporates therapeutic compound formulas directly into the air.  These formulas have various effects and performances, depending on the fuel that is used.  The effects are directly related to the response of the user in the presence of the unit. Secondly, the Lamp Aire diffuser undergoes the same catalytic combustion as the earlier units.

This catalytic reaction results in the formation of free radicals which can interact with oxygen in the air, effecting the potential formation of ozone.  Both organic and inorganic substances may be oxidized by ozone, including microorganisms such as mold, viruses, fungi and bacteria.  Ozone has actually been used to purify waste water to make it safe to drink.  The binding of the free radical moiety from the ozone with these materials results in pure oxygen being left behind after the interaction.  Finally, alcohol is diffused into the air as the Lamp Aire diffuser operates. This alcohol can also interact with particles in the air, resulting in absorption and inactivation of the particle by the alcohol.

Instead of a flame, Lamp Aire uses a form of catalytic combustion. The flame is used to initiate the catalytic process by heating the stone to 150°C (flame is extinguished after approximately 2 minutes).

The alcohol from the reservoir is oxidized by the hot ceramic in the presence of air, generating heat and allowing the cycle to continue.  This is known as “heterogeneous” catalytic oxidation.  As the catalytic combustion goes on, molecules that destroy odors and bacteria are released into the air, while also dispersing the fragrance of the therapeutic medicinal compound formulas.  The vital therapeutic compound’s fragrance is not combusted, but simply released into the air from the hot surface of the stone.

The following study results show that catalytic sterilizing units continue to remove bacteria from the air long after the unit is extinguished.

Lyon University (France) Study:  Diffuser operated for 30 minutes
Time after diffuser ceased operating: Bacterial reduction(%)
Experiment 1 Experiment 2
1 hour 83% 91.4%
2 hours 83% 91.4%
3 hours 76% 89.5%
30 hours 42% 85%
vA second Study by Agro Hall (Independent testing agency) showed a 48 to 69% reduction in micro-organism in a large room.
vProtocol: A diffuser was burnt for 45 minutes, in a 93 cubic meter room. Aerobiocollector was used before and after to determine bacterial count in multiple locations.When looking for fragrance dispersal, Lamp Aire offers superior fragrance delivery compared to conventional fragrance dispersal units.
