Background

To evaluate the efficacy of the NV800/NV900 on reducing formaldehyde.

Method

A plexiglass chamber was built for formaldehyde testing of the NV800/NV900. This chamber was also equipped for proper ventilation and interior air circulation. A calculated amount of formaldehyde solution was evaporated in an aluminum pan heated to 120 degrees Celsius with a constant temperature hot plate.

SUMMARY OF RESULTS

The NV800/NV900 reduced formaldehyde from 100 ppm to around 13 ppm during a 14-hour testing experiment, an 85% reduction.
