Third-party testing done by the University of Colorado Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering found that the Carrier/Bryant Infinity/Evolution air purifier inactivates 99% of coronavirus captured in the filter. Testing also concluded that Carrier’s/Bryant’s Captures & Kills technology inactivates 99% of select viruses and bacteria trapped on the filter, such as a common cold virus surrogate, Streptococcus pyogenes and human influenza.1
With every cycle of air that passes through this patented air purifying system, pollen, animal dander, bacteria and other pollutants are captured and held tightly to the filter. An electrical charge then bursts the cell walls of pathogens it comes in contact with. The result is that homes with the Infinity air purifier can provide healthier indoor environments. Families can have added peace of mind that their loved ones have a cleaner and healthier home in which to live, learn, work and play.
The Infinity/Evolution air purifier works with most forced air HVAC systems produced by both Carrier/Bryant and other manufacturers and treats the air flowing through an HVAC system’s air handler using a three-step, charge/capture/kill process that inactivates 99% of select viruses and bacteria:
Step One: Charge – the purifier creates a “cloud” of electrically charged ions that attach themselves to airborne dust, pollen, viruses, germs and other particles as they pass through.
Step Two: Capture – the ionized particles are pulled toward an oppositely charged, pleated filter and captured at an extremely high rate.
Step Three: Kill – captured airborne microbes remain on the pleated filter instead of recirculating back into the home and are subjected to an intense electric field.
1 The Infinity/Evolution Air Purifier has demonstrated effectiveness against the murine coronavirus, based on thirdparty testing (2020) showing a greater than 99% inactivation, which is a virus similar to the human novel coronavirus (SARSCoV- 2) that causes COVID-19. Therefore, the Infinity/Evolution Air Purifier can be expected to be effective against SARS-CoV-2 when used in accordance with its directions for use. Third-party testing (2012, 2007) also shows an equal to or greater than 99% inactivation for the type of virus that causes common colds, Streptococcus pyogenes and human influenza. Airborne particles must flow through your HVAC system and be trapped by the Infinity/Evolution filter to be inactivated at 99%.
