PRINCETON, ON, June 27, 2012 /CNW/ - The ability for a Brant County
based business to improve its leadership role in whole home air
purification was assisted by an Engage Grant from the Natural Sciences
and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) on Wednesday.
Second Wind Air Purifier™, a division of Tiercel Technology Corp was
awarded the grant, which will be administered by Dr. W.A. Anderson from
the University of Waterloo's Department of Chemical Engineering.
The scope of the grant is to optimize the company's technology and
products - residential and commercial air purifiers that attack
contaminants in HVAC systems with germicidal UV-C light and patented
Photo-Catalytic Oxidation (PCO) processes for control of odours,
bioaerosols, viruses and organic substances.
"When Second Wind Air Purifier™ arrived in 1990, there were few
companies manufacturing these devices," said Tom Wilson, President.
"Today, the market has been saturated by sub-standard ultraviolet
offerings that HVAC manufacturers have added to their existing product
mix that often do very little for Indoor Air Quality."
"This partnership with the University of Waterloo and NSERC enables our
company to rate its performance, optimize our current designs for
maximum air purification and develop patent modification
recommendations," he said. "This will provide new directions and
innovative technologies to improve Indoor Air Quality for every
homeowner that invests in a Second Wind Air Purifier™".
