Particulate matter or PM is defined as complex mix of very small particles, water vapor, and gases. SOx and NOx are examples of particulate matter that have especially harmful effects on the environment. EPA and EU regulates two categories of particulate matter for health and welfare reasons:
PM10: “Inhalable coarse particles” are between 2.5 and 10 micrometers in diameter
PM2.5: “Fine particles” are smaller than 2.5 micrometers in diameter
These fine particles pose more health risks than larger particles because they can settle deeper into the lungs and even into the bloodstream. Like other air pollution, particles can cause premature death in people with heart or lung disease, nonfatal heart attacks, irregular heartbeat, aggravated asthma, decreased lung function, and respiratory issues like inflamed airways and difficulty breathing.
Ionada’s DePM™ technologies include impulse cleaning Bag Filters, Electrostatic Precipitators, Cyclone Separators as well as passive Diesel Particulate Filters for smaller engines.
