RELEASE – 06/03/2020
Many customers asked us in the last weeks regarding the NeumoFilt Filtration efficency against Covid-19 also called Coronavirus.
Current research`s suggest that this virus has a size range of 0.1 – 0.05 microns, which makes it a larger particle than the one used in the standard independent viral efficiency test (Bacteriophage φ174 = 0.027 microns) of the NeumoFilt Filter.
In comparison, the HIV virus is 0.042 microns while the Hepatitis C is 0.03 microns. It is obvious that Bacteria such as Tuberculosis, by contrast, are much larger in size than the mentioned viruses.
We can conclude that NeumoFilt will provide the same protection against 2019-nCov than with other viruses as stated in the independent laboratory test reports performed with the NeumoFilt at 30-55 and 750 l/min. (12.5 l/sec.)
