Rethinking and prototyping air filtering

Challenge: radically improve air filtering

During an outbreak of Q-fever, noticing that barn vents can spread contagious air, we were first triggered to rethink air filtering. A request from a local brewery, to eliminate brewing odours, started our prototyping.

ILUMY innovation: integrate and minimize filter methods

Initial prototypes combined a very compact, custom plasma air cleaner unit with a UV source, different types of catalysts, an ionization source and optional HEPA filter to provide extreme filtering with augmented technologies. The prototype and final design have sensors to measure input and output air quality and transmit this data online.

Shared insight: often calibrate measurement during prototyping

Analysing sensor data from prototypes yielded great insights, but only after concluding that prototype sensors needed their own attention and calibration. Calibrate your sensors in operational conditions!
