How IVP Differs in Killing COVID & Other Viruses

The Heat is On

Generally speaking, the strongest filters on the market can catch (but not necessarily destroy) bacteria and/or viruses, but the latter has sticky glycoproteins that can hold onto a filter long enough to re-populate, break off and re-enter the air supply—thereby infecting people even when filtration is used.

 

Since SARS-CoV-2 cannot tolerate temperatures above 70° C, IVP researchers designed and fabricated efficient filters to turn up the heat: Our HEPA technology catches and kills such viruses through a pulsatile relay of heat on a nickel (Ni) mesh foam filter that’s able to absorb and hold an ample amount of warmth over the very short time period required to kill a virus, essentially “cooking” it.

While filtration is used most commonly to clean air, all the following methods can fall short of fully eliminating and deactivating viruses.
