Natede Basic: the natural and sustainable air purifier

In the last two years, we can say that the COVID-19 pandemic has left a profound mark on our lives, which has made us aware of how much health and well-being in our internal spaces are fundamental during our days.

Being forced to spend more time at home, we’ve realized how indoor air quality and sanitized environments represent an excellent way to enjoy your interior spaces to the fullest.

Unfortunately, the circulation of the Sars-CoV-2 virus made us understand how particularly complicated it is to fight an invisible enemy. And implementing different strategies is the right key to minimize the possibility of becoming infected and ensure us a safe internal environment against COVID-19.

What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is the disease caused by the Sars-CoV-2 virus.

It seems like a trivial distinction, but in reality it is an important concept for understanding the dynamics of prevention. In fact, the name "Sars-CoV-2" represents the viral strain to which all the different variants we have witnessed in these two years belong: from the first Wuhan virus, passing through the Delta, up to the recent Omicron, Omicron BA 2 and Xe.

When we talk about COVID-19, we mean the real disease derived from contracting this virus, and which has three types of courses:

  • Asymptomatic
  • Paucisymptomatic
  • Severe symptomatic

In the case of asymptomatic individuals with COVID-19, they are individuals who have contracted the Sars-CoV-2 virus but whose immune system has been able to effectively eradicate it without having to trigger a response immune defense.

Paucisymptomatic individuals who came into contact with the virus, on the other hand, represent that group of people who reacted with a prompt immune response to eradicate the virus, thus triggering the classic flu symptoms:

  • Cough
  • Fever
  • Loss of lucidity
  • Breathing difficulties

Severe symptomatic ones, fortunately the minority of those infected with Sars-CoV-2, are instead victims of an exaggerated immune response, which in the most serious cases leads to hospitalization for various causes which usually are:

  • High fever
  • Severe breathing difficulties
  • Raised blood pressure
  • Collapse of saturation
  • Interstitial bronchitis and pneumonia
  • Lung collapse
  • Disseminated intravascular microagulations
  • Thrombosis and heart attacks

It is good to know how this virus behaves and what its main characteristics are, to know how to intervene in the correct way to take care of every internal space that we use during the day.

How does the Sars-CoV-2 virus behave in the air?

Once a person becomes infected with Sars-CoV-2 and is already in the transmissibility phase, he can infect other people in a closed environment.

Transmission occurs thanks to the ability of the virus to remain anchored to the different fluids emitted by the infected person. The most common methods of airborne transmission are:

  • Sneezing
  • Coughing fits
  • Talk closely
  • Normal exhalation
  • Sweat

The general timing of how long a virus can stay in the air was initially unclear. Let's take sneezing as an example, which is generally the form of airborne transmission that covers a large radius within an indoor environment.

It was thought that after a few minutes the droplets of the sneeze ended up on the ground without being able to be further transmitted in the aerosol.

But a scientific research published in MedRxiv has shown that Sars-CoV-2 can remain in the air for up to 3 hours after one of the aforementioned transmission events.

This undoubtedly leads us to pay more attention to the precautions to be taken in our internal environments, in addition of using of the mask.

How can you have a healthy internal environment against COVID?

Let's see together some very brief guidelines on how to behave to ensure a healthy environment that can minimize the risk of viral and bacterial transmission.

Wash your hands

A gesture as simple as it is effective. Having clean hands greatly reduces the risk of viruses and bacteria accumulating on the skin.

The amount of actions we perform with our hands, without also counting the number of objects and surfaces we touch during the day, is really very high.

The safest method to know that your hands are free of viruses, bacteria and germs is definitely to clean with soap and water, finishing everything with an antibacterial gel, such as any alcohol solution.

wash hands

Sanitizes the surfaces

Having clean hands obviously is a huge help. But this must also apply to the surfaces used during the day.

There are different products to sanitize, but very often they are composed of different chemical agents that if used in large quantities can make the environments free of viruses and bacteria, but at the same time pollute the air with a large amount of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds).

Also in this case, a simple and less invasive solution is to use alcohol to take care of the sanitation of the internal environments.

Air the house

Ensuring a continuous change of air throughout the day is important for your environment, as well as refreshing your home.

Opening the windows several times a day becomes essential to ensure a fresh, renewed flow of air and to ensure that any Sars-CoV-2 residues do not stagnate in your rooms. In addition to making the air more pleasant to breathe.

However, a major problem is for those who live in cities or very polluted areas outside, such as cities or close to large traffic flows that do not allow the air to be exchanged effectively: in fact it could even get worse by bringing the smog of the city into the house.

What can be done in this case? The solution exists: you can use an air purifier!

But beware: do air purifiers eliminate the virus that causes COVID-19?

Do Vitesy air purifiers work against COVID-19?

Our Vitesy company was born to produce and develop sustainable air purifiers against indoor pollution.

This cutting-edge technology of our air purifiers allows you to eliminate various pollutants.

But is it able to eliminate the SARS-CoV-2 that causes COVID-19?

The answer is YES, our technology is able to eliminate Sars-CoV-2 in the aerosol of your internal environment, thanks to the effectiveness of our photocatalytic filter.

We have demonstrated this in the laboratory, carrying out specific tests on the quantity and timing with which our technology is able to eliminate the danger of COVID.

And the results were amazing:

- 97.18% in just 20 minutes
- 99.10% in just 4 hours

This result is truly a great success for a reality like ours, especially in a period in which COVID has represented a big obstacle during these two years.

These are results that make us aware and proud of two important concepts:

  • Air purifiers represent the present and the future of internal well-being
  • Our technology is effective, safe and helps people lives

Why should you buy a Vitesy air purifier? 

On the air purification market, the best known technology is undoubtedly HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air).

The photocatalysis we use instead, is an innovative method of air purification that does not limit itself to blocking pollutants like the classic HEPA filters, but rather eliminates them thanks to a particular chemical reaction, transforming them into harmless substances such as carbon dioxide and water.

Therefore this transformation process makes the photocatalytic filter more incisive than HEPA, which does not decompose harmful substances, but only blocks them.

Another fundamental feature of Vitesy air purifiers is that the filter does not need to be changed: the filter is perennial and does not require maintenance or the purchase of additional materials. It simply needs to be rinsed under water once a month!

Analyzing the technical data of photocatalysis, we can also note how the filters that use photocatalysis have the ability to eliminate particles up to 0.001 microns, including the tiny penetrating particles that our lungs can absorb and cause damage (HEPA filters are able to filter only particles down to 0.3 microns).

Studies have also shown that in addition to VOCs, toxic gases and chemicals, photocatalytic units can also render gases such as carbon monoxide and nitrous oxide harmless - these are pollutants that escape standard units using only technology. HEPA.

Natede Basic: the natural and sustainable air purifier

The solution we propose is Natede Basic, our latest product.

Natede Basic is our entry level air purifier that uses a double purification step:

  • The power of phytodepuration of plants
  • The photocatalytic filter with Vitesy technology

Why do we use plants? It's very simple!

Natede Basic was designed starting from a NASA study which shows the extraordinary ability of some types of plants to eliminate pollutants in the air.

In fact, these plants are able to break down these pollutants thanks to their cultivation substrate. (the roots). So the first step of purification is 100% natural and green.

A real super power that allows you to effectively get rid of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) and to renew the air with new oxygen.

To exponentially increase this phytodepuration capacity of the plants, we have added a ceramic filter covered by the WO3, which is positioned under the plant.

This filter eliminates:

  • Viruses
  • Bacteria
  • VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds)
  • Odors

While it gives clean, renewed and pure air to the outside.

And it will give you numerous benefits, among which we have:

  • Physical and psychological well-being
  • Reduction of stress and anxiety
  • Greater lucidity
  • Greater productivity
  • Less onset of viruses
  • Reduction of allergy and flu symptoms
  • Headache and fatigue reductions
  • More energy and vitality
