Spotted: Dexwet Air Filters (Dexwet) is an Austrian air filter manufacturing and technology company, making ‘Pure Air Filters’ that are sustainable, silent, and require no monthly maintenance or power.
The technology allows air, with minimal resistance, to pass through staggered rods coated in a non-toxic oil solution that permanently captures airborne particles like microfine dust, pollen, bacteria and viruses, allowing clean and pure air to flow through.
Unlike other air filters, Dexwet attaches to outflow vents using magnets to clean the air before it enters the room. Once a year, they can be cleaned in the dishwasher and the oil reapplied for years of use.
Recently, an independent field study capturing over two million data points confirmed the effectiveness of Dexwet Pure Air Filters in removing 99.9 per cent of airborne dust, pollen, and nano-fine particles such as bacteria and viruses in a classroom, in only 2.4 hours.
Dexwet Pure Air Filters has more than 60 patents worldwide and is now being sold for consumer use in Austria, Germany, and Europe.
In June 2021, Dexwet plans to enter the U.S. market and will make available its patented filter technology for US standard exchange vents for both home and commercial use.
