A recent scientific test carried out by MRIGlobal revealed the effectiveness of Airfree’s exclusive TSS™ technology in eliminating the covid19 virus from indoor air
A recent test performed by certified independent laboratory MRIGlobal in the US confirmed that Airfree air purifiers are effective in destroying the novel coronavirus, also known as SARS-CoV-2 or Covid-19.
The test therefore proved that Airfree’s exclusive TSS™ technology is also effective against COVID-19. In other words, Airfree air purifiers help keep enclosed spaces safer.
The COVID-19 pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus has had a series of devastating effects on society, with impacts on health, the economy and other areas. Since the virus appeared and spread throughout the world, we have seen various measures, products and formulas claim to eliminate or protect us from SARS-CoV-2 by destroying the root cause of COVID-19.
Health bodies have supported some of these measures as effective in preventing the illness, such as regular washing of the hands with soap and water, 70% alcohol or alcohol solutions, wearing masks, and keeping indoor spaces well ventilated. However, some solutions and products are questionable.
For this reason, we must always take note of scientific tests and studies that can confirm the efficacy of solutions in eliminating the virus.
For several years now, tests carried out by independent laboratories have shown that using Airfree air purifiers is a solution to keep indoor air better protected from microorganisms, including viruses. This is due to its exclusive technology, unique on the market.
Aim of the test
The aim of the test was to determine, in controlled laboratory conditions, whether Airfree air purifiers could eliminate the SARS-CoV-2 virus from the air.
MRIGlobal was the laboratory chosen, not only for its international credibility, but also for its expertise in tests involving the SARS-CoV-2 virus. All the technical procedures were approved, and the results were verified and peer-reviewed.

How was the test performed?
How does Airfree eliminate SARS-CoV-2 from the air?
The purifier used, like all Airfree purifiers, contains a ceramic core which, during operation, can reach 210°C. This is a temperature at which it is difficult for any microorganism, including the SARS-CoV-2 virus, to survive.
The air circulates through the device by natural convection, which occurs due to the difference in temperature between the ceramic core (interior) and the air in the room where the device is located (exterior).
The heated ceramic core is part of the device’s exclusive technology, patented by Airfree and tested multiple times by certified laboratories. Its capacity to destroy all the microorganisms present in the air – including viruses – is thus proven.
Like most viruses, the novel coronavirus is heat-sensitive. Exposure to high temperatures can destroy it, eliminating much of the risk of it circulating in enclosed spaces. However, it is important to stress that it is not possible to guarantee that all viruses circulating in the air within a room equipped with an Airfree air purifier will be destroyed before they are inhaled.
How does Airfree technology work?
TSS™ technology (Thermodynamic Sterilization System), inspired by the process of sterilizing water by boiling, uses heat to purify the air silently and without filters.
The contaminated air enters the device and is heated to temperatures of up to 210°C. Within the mini-ducts of the ceramic core, viruses and other microorganisms are destroyed by the heat. The device then returns the air to the atmosphere purified.
Advantages of using an Airfree air purifier
The advantages of choosing the Airfree air purifier, tested by several laboratories including MRIGlobal, are:
– Patented, environmentally friendly and exclusive TSS™ technology;
– Runs non-stop, 24/7, without filters or maintenance;
– Totally noise-free;
– Low energy consumption;
– Small and portable;
– Attractive design for interior spaces:
– Warranty of up to 3 years.
As well as being capable of eliminating the novel coronavirus, the devices also eliminate other air pollutants, such as mould, dust mites, pollen, bacteria and pet allergens. Airfree devices also reduce the amount of ozone and volatile organic compounds in the air of the room where they are installed.
Airfree devices are suitable for countless indoor spaces, such as homes, schools, hotels, hospitals, retirement homes, dental practices, museums and historic buildings. They also offer additional protection against airborne diseases such as COVID-19, improving quality of life and well-being.
It is very important to bear in mind that, despite their proven effectiveness, air purifiers should only be seen as a complementary means of protection. They keep the levels of microorganisms and other pollutants in indoor air low.
With regard to the SARS-CoV-2 virus and COVID-19, it is vital to follow all the recommendations of the World Health Organization and other authorities with regard to personal protection in order to reduce exposure to and transmission of the virus. Particularly in enclosed spaces, it is essential to continue to use masks, maintain social distancing and regularly wash or disinfect your hands.
