PURE SKIES 6000
Pure Skies 6000 for Factories
Pure Skies 6000 is Devic Earth's model to easily improve indoor air quality over large areas, such as inside factories and other buildings.
Pure Skies 6000 reduces particulate pollutants (PM2.5 and PM10), nitrogen oxides, sulphur dioxide, and carbon monoxide. Overall air quality index improves by a minimum 33%. In addition:
Carbon dioxide - an important indoor air pollutant that causes impaired memory and fatigue (think stuffy meeting rooms) - reduces by an average 25%.
Wide area of coverage
This advanced system, with a reach like no other product, improves air quality up to 200,000 square feet of space per floor, typically covering 3 floors depending on building material. Steel reinforced concrete is generally not a barrier to Pure Skies.
How is this possible?
Pure Skies 6000 improved air quality by 81% : Real life case study
A single Pure Skies 6000 unit was installed in a heavy manufacturing company where welding is done. Baseline air quality (the bar in red) was collected using industry grade air quality monitors and then the Pure Skies unit was remotely turned on to improve the air quality levels at the factory. The following graph explains the air pollution reductions by Pure Skies 6000:
The baseline indoor air quality levels in this case are considered hazardous, despite the extensive use of fume extractors by the plant operators.
After its installation, Pure Skies 6000 unit reduced 24-hour average PM2.5 and PM10 levels by 81% and 70% respectively in just 7 weeks. The factory output was constant throughout the installation. The key point that is to be noted here is the step-wise reduction in air pollution levels reflects the smart technology of Pure Skies in action.
How does it work?
Pure Skies are unlike conventional air purifiers. Instead, they use a novel omni-directional antenna to generate weak radio waves in a specific pulsed sequence. Because radio waves are able to travel over long distances (compared to cell phone towers, Bluetooth, or Wi-Fi), Pure Skies is able to work over a distance. However, these radio waves work at a particular frequency which does not affect other forms of telecommunication.
The pulsed radio waves accelerate the velocity of very small particle pollutants (< 20 microns) and aerosols, increasing their clearance through a natural process called dry deposition.
Imagine a billiard table (the atmosphere) filled with billiard balls (pollutants). When the cue ball (radio waves) hits the billiard balls, they scatter. In the hands of a skilled billiard player, the balls move quickly into the side or corner pockets and are cleared away (dry deposition).
What happens to all those pollutants when they settle down? We were hoping you would ask.
The target pollutants that are affected by Pure Skies are at high enough concentrations to be toxic to human health, but are still present in tiny concentrations - parts per million or sometimes parts per billion. Because of their low concentration and microscopic size (one PM2.5 particle is 40 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair), we do not see a layer of dust on the ground when pollution improves with Pure Skies.
Improving air quality index (AQI) to less than 50 improves productivity of employees by 5-6%, which in turn increases the profitability of the company by 1%, according to a study published in the Harvard Business Review.
Worker productivity drops by 1% for every increase in PM2.5 levels by 10 mcg/m3, according to researchers from Columbia University.
Better air quality means reduced cost and time leakages due to better employee health, reduced days lost to sick leave, and improved productivity.
ENHANCE EMPLOYEE RETENTION
The benefits of improved air quality and sustainability extends into your company's work culture.
Retention is a cornerstone of success and healthy work culture.
Demonstrating sustainable practices improves employee retention, motivation, and recruitment , according to a study by Indiana University
Younger workers, especially millennials, are more likely to value and join companies with demonstrated sustainability programs, according to a survey by Deloitte.
An air quality improvement program powered by Pure Skies is a tangible way to demonstrate your company's commitment to sustainability.

The S-word is all over the business pages and social media these days.
Sustainability betters the bottom line. In a recent meta-analysis, 88% of studies found that companies that adhered to social or environmental standards showed better operational performance, and 80% of studies showed a positive effect on stock price performance. If that's not good business sense, then we do know what is.
Sustainability wins customers. Consumers are more likely to choose brands with transparent and clear sustainability actions.
72% of millennials in the UK are willing to pay more for products from companies committed to positive social and environmental impact (Provenance).
For millennials, sustainability is more important than convenience (Business Insider, A.T. Kearney Analysis).
More than 21% of people said they would actively choose brands if they made their sustainability credentials clearer on their packaging and in their marketing (Unilever Report, 2017).
Unilever’s “sustainable living” brands are growing 30 percent faster than the rest of their business.
Sustainability improves brand value. Just ask Elon Musk, whose Tesla Motors Model 3 sold more cars in the United States than Mercedes Benz.
Sustainability influences investors. Sustainable investing has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years. 75% of individual investors in a recent poll by Morgan Stanley were interested in sustainable investing, and 71% believe companies that focus on the environment and social goals will actually earn better returns.
LIMITATIONS OF PURE SKIES
No technology can do everything. As remarkable and simple as Pure Skies is, it does not work well on the following:
Large dust particles, such as from a dust storm or coke particles. Only the smaller components of this dust that are less than 20 microns in diameter will be affected by Pure Skies.
Smoke from burning firecrackers or wood, forest fires, open garbage, or debris. However, once the smoke disperses into the surrounding air, Pure Skies takes effect and reduces PM10, PM2.5, and other target pollutants - by a minimum 33%.
Emissions within a flue stack or tail pipe. These gases are at very high temperature and move at a high velocity. Dry deposition plays no role in this environment. Once the emitted gases disperse into the atmosphere, however, Pure Skies will take effect.
Paint spray. Pure Skies does not affect paint finish in industrial or commercial applications.
Ground level ozone is not affected.
WHERE PURE SKIES SHOULD NOT BE USED
One day our CEO and co-founder, Dr. Srikanth Sola (back in his cardiologist days), saw a patient after he just undergone an angioplasty operation to open a blocked artery. The gentleman was quite obese and his diabetes was out of control. After his new heart medicines were explained to him, the patient asked, "Doc, since I'm taking these cholesterol pills now after my angioplasty, can I continue to eat cheeseburgers and ice cream like I used to?"
You can guess what Dr. Sola told him.
In the same way, Pure Skies is not a substitute for common sense, tangible, ethical, and/or legally required actions to mitigate air pollution.
