HealthWay launches Made in America brand under Intellipure!
A businessperson with good ideas starts a company in his hometown. The company makes money, and grows. It gives back to the town, invests in its people and its buildings, bringing hope and prosperity with every new innovation. This is the American Dream, and it’s happening right now in Pulaski, New York.
Located on the Salmon River in Central New York, Pulaski is known for its natural beauty, small town charm, and incredible salmon fishing. It’s also the hometown of HealthWay, a company that has developed revolutionary indoor air quality technologies, and is revolutionizing the industry again with the world’s first handcrafted in the USA, “Better than HEPA” air cleaning line.
HealthWay’s founders Vince and Vinny Lobdell grew up in Pulaski, and they have made it their company’s mission to give back to their town. Their journey of searching, developing and perfecting air purification systems started in 1981. Bringing pure air to more people and creating healthier indoor environments have always been their passion. After 35 years, they have incorporated the cutting edge DFS technology to state-of-the-art Intellipure air cleaning devices.
As a giveback to their hometown, the Lobdell’s purchased and completely renovated the abandoned Ontario Iron Works facility, saving it from the wrecking ball. Built in 1830’s, and once a landmark and most important manufacturing center in the 19th and 20th century, the facility was forced to close due to keen competition from larger corporations. Today, it’s Intellipure’s headquarters – a bustling center of American innovation and manufacturing that provides jobs, attracts out of town interests, and infuses energy into the area.
In 2010, the company purchased and completely refurbished the Kallet Theater, a failing movie house in town whose glory days seemed firmly entrenched in the past. Today, the Kallet is a go-to location for concerts, business functions and live theater. It hosts all of Intellipure/ Healthway and PURE Global summits.
When Intellipure makes plans for the future, it has Pulaski’s future in mind as well. To them, this is what it means to buy a product that was “Made In USA.” Not only are you paying for technology developed in one of the world’s most innovative nations, you’re also investing in the well-being of a small town and improving people’s lives.
The only purifier developed to fight the ultrafine particle epidemic.
The air we breathe is full of microscopic particles. In recent years, scientists have conducted convincing research that indicates the smallest, “ultrafine” particles are potentially health hazardous. Intellipure’s Ultrafine Series with DFS technology was built specifically to eradicate these harmful particles, at a higher rate than any purifier in the world.
Origins of ultrafine particles
Airborne particles originate from many natural and man-made sources (e.g. sand dust, fires, diesel smoke, sea salt). Ultrafine particles are only generated at very high temperatures, such as combustion processes, including wood fires, car engines, industry, cooking fumes and cigarette smoke.
Potential health hazards
Ultrafine particles penetrate deep in the lungs. The concentration of these particles is higher, making them harder for the lungs to deal with, leading to inflammation. Also, these particles are small enough to enter the cells in the body and end up in the bloodstream, potentially causing heart and brain diseases. Children, elderly people and people with lung problems like asthma are especially vulnerable to ultrafine particle air pollution.
Indoor air pollution is a serious global problem, and standard air filtration is no longer the answer. Most air cleaners cannot capture and neutralize ultrafine particles, which have been linked to disease and premature death. The Ultrafine Series of air cleaning devices feature patented DFS (Disinfecting Filtration System) technology, envisioned and made in the USA by Intellipure. They’re the world’s most advanced air filtration systems.
1200-2000 SC unit featuring patented DFS technology
Designed for medium to larger spaces, the Ultrafine 468 is the world’s most powerful and energy-efficient air cleaner. This system traps microorganisms for continuous germicidal exposure and captures particles down to 0.007 micron in size. When on low or sleep mode, it only uses 1 watt per hour. So, 24/7 operation costs as little as $1 a month. Furthermore, it provides the highest CFM (cubic feet per minute of air flow) per decibel level of noise in its category, making it the quietest air purifier of its kind. Also, it features our proprietary capacitance touch control, providing seamless fan speed operation.
Laboratory Evaluation of the DFS
The DFS technology went through multiple third-party testing of its efficiency, filter classification and effectiveness on a number of criteria pollutants. The tests were conducted by independent research institutes including Syracuse University BEES Lab and University of Buffalo IUCB. Additional filed studies in the area of clean room applications were conducted by Jaisinghani et al. 8 have demonstrated the bactericidal properties of the DFS AKA “Electrically Enhanced Filtration EEF” under laboratory conditions. There was also study conducted at Virginia Polytechnic Institute. Findings and references from these third-party studies can be read at the following links:
