AIR+ / Air filter


used independently when paving asphalt roads. It can target the toxic gases (cumene, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, PAHs) released during the paving process and the engine exhaust of the road paving machine to improve risk of the carcinogenesis and other diseases caused by long-term exposure of toxic gases to construction workers. Air + mainly uses a porous ceramic filter to coat antioxidants and a honeycomb ceramic substrate plating catalyst to degrade polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon compounds, PAHs, in the exhaust gas, and uses mordenite to decompose cumene to provide a safe working environment.
