THE MASKS OF THE FUTURE
Great Sealing + Quality Material + Large Filter Area = High Filtration Mask
An effective face mask with high filtration efficiency (such as 95%) requires 3 key elements:
It should have an almost perfect sealing on the face. Higher the filtration grade, more important the sealing is.
Mask filters should be made out of high quality materials such as N95 or MERV16.
The filter size should be large enough to match the test conditions. In standard tests, usually a 100-150 cm2 filter material is tested. To achieve 95% filtration, the filter size should be around that range.
Missing any of these 3 elements, the filtration rate of the mask can be dramatically lower than 95%
What's the Problem with Current Face Mask Technologies?
Typical N95 face masks are believed to filter 95% of airborne particles
In Fact, to achieve 95% filtration rate, the N95 mask edges should be glued on our face!
In reality, the way we wear these masks, their filtration rate falls below 50% according to our experiments
MADE IN USA
Not only making superior face sealing, we own high tech manufacturing and lab setups to manufacture and quality control our proprietary filters
WHAT IS NEW ABOUT AKYOR FILTERS?
AKYOR developed an innovative manufacturing technique to package a large N95/MERV16 filter inside a small injection-molded frame. It results in a compact replaceable filter that is breathable and effective, thanks to its large filter size.
Silicone injection molds and the filter frame plastic injection molds are completed. We already started manufacturing/packaging the face masks and filters
Your Voice is Heard!
A large filter in the middle of the mask, right in front of the mouth, allows for a great transfer of the voice to outside.
In addition, lots of acoustic engineering simulation and design has been done on the curvature, angles, and dimensions of our filter to minimize the sound reflection inside the mask.
AKYOR PURIFICATION CHAMBERS
A real-time LED-based breathing sterilization requires 3 critical elements:
It needs the most powerful UV-C LED system ever made to be effective enough
It needs a mechanism to delay the breathing airflow to increase the light exposure time
It needs a particle trapping mechanism to further increase the UV exposure time
We went through all 3 steps. We made the most advanced UVC LED engine integrating 8 super high power UVC LEDs on an aluminum frame. Our UVC LED engine provides up to 133 mW of optical power. Each pair of LEDs have their own temperature sensor and LED driver. Employing independent LED drivers and temperature sensors we can safely turn the LEDs ON or OFF, adjust their intensity, and pulse them.
The LEDs employed in this system are one of the most powerful and the most efficient technologies available on 2020.
We invented a technology to slow down the air flow up to one breathing cycle inside a long air pathway, a US patent-pending technology. It significantly increases the UV light exposure time. When the particles enter the optical chamber, they are guided into a long-path tunnel, almost 10" length. The high power UV-C LEDs are positioned along this tunnel.
All Electronic Particle Trap
UVC5D is advanced with an all-electronic particle trap system. It is a combined Electrostatic-Ultrasonic particle trap to slow down the particle's mobility. There is no N95 filter inside UVC5D, our Ultrasonic-Electrostatic technology traps the particles. So, UVC5D is the most breathable mask filter in the market.
While the air freely flows inside the long tunnel, two core technologies are employed to slow down the movement of the particles inside the optical chamber, the electrostatic trap and the ultrasonic disturbance engine. When the airborne pathogens travel along the tunnel, they face a huge electric field that they never experienced in their life! It accelerates them toward the metal walls on the side of the pathway and traps them to the electrically charged metal plates. At the same time, an ultrasonic system starts disturbing the air pressure inside the chamber by applying our patent-pending pressure modulation technology. It further slows down the free movement of the particle along the air pathway and guides them toward the side walls. These two technologies significantly slow down the particles' movement and increase the UV light exposure time.
US Patented Ultrasonic Flowmeter
Let's get back to our optical engine. The 8 UV-C LEDs employed in our instrument are one of the most powerful and the most efficient UV-C LEDs available in today's market. Continuously powering the LED engine inside the UVD4D system, total numbers of 8 LEDs at 100% power, consumes lots of battery power and generates some heat. Increasing the temperature at the surface of LED board, reduces their efficiency and optical power. Instead, We continuously power all LEDs at the lower power (40-50% capacity), but fire them at 100% capacity at the peak of the air flow. This mechanism requires a precise and rapid air flow meter. Thanks to our patented alignG ultrasonic technology, we manufacture cost effective Doppler-based ultrasonic flow-meters to integrate into UVC5D.
