The XJ-3000C features:

  • Low & Efficient Energy Consumption
  • No Weekly Maintenance (Like Infomercial Brands)
  • Each unit covers 500 sq ft
  • 3-Year Warranty
  • 60-day Money-Back Guarantee
  • Portable & Compact 10 lbs., 15" (W), 13" (H), 7.75 (D)
  • 3-Stage Air Filter Cartridge and UV Lamp Included
  • The New-Aire XJ-3000C Air Purifier uses many different methods to remove nail dust aerosols from the environment.

    • The HEPA filter removes all but the smallest particles in the air stream.
    • The Ionizer causes smaller particles to clump and either become trapped in the HEPA filter or fall to the ground.
    • The UV disinfects particles whether or not they are trapped by the HEPA filter.
    • The Ozone Generator and the fan send disinfecting ozone out into the room.

    Comparison of the effectiveness of nail dust extractors

    CK Harvey, DPM

    Electrical debridement of nails results in hazardous airborne particles. This study compares the effectiveness of several nail dust extractors in reducing the amount of this debris. All extractors were more effective than the control, with a minimum of 24.6% effectiveness to a maximum of 91.6%.

    This article cites several studies that found precipitin antibodies to trichophyton rubrum in up to approximately 30% of podiatrists and in only 6.6% of student controls.

    The study discusses the effectiveness of various near-field vacuum systems used in tandem with a nail grinding device. We consider this the first stage of a whole solution, because the most effective of these so-called "point-source collection" systems still left 8.4% of nail dust in the environment, while the least effective left 75.4%.

    If you're uncomfortable about the idea of that 8.4% left in the environment (let alone 75.4%), here are three points of interest:

    • With the New-Aire XJ-3000C Air Purifier, particles too small to be trapped by the filter system still have to pass through the UV and ozone fields in the unit. Both UV and ozone are effective against fungus and mold.
    • The fan in the XJ-3000C quietly sends ozone out into the room where it can be effective even against pathogens that haven't passed through the unit, including fungus that has become attached to surfaces and so will not be floating into the unit.
    • The fan also sends trillions of negative ions into the room every second. These ions cause particulates in the air to attract to each other, causing them to form clumps. These clumps either fall to the ground or become large enough to be trapped by the air filters in the New-Aire XJ-3000C Air Purifier as they pass through it.

    Inhalation of nail dust from onychomycotic toenails. Part I.

    Characterization of particles. 1984

    C Abramson and J Wilton

    Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine, Philadelphia 19107.

    Nail dust particles were analyzed by scanning electron microscopy for size and topography. The percentage of "fines" that could be inhaled and deposited in the alveoli and bronchioles were determined by quantitative particle size analysis. Distribution representing the largest total mass was graphed between 1 and 2 microns. The authors found that 86% of nail dust would reach the bronchioles and alveoli, and 31% could be expected to deposit in these areas.

    Nail dust aerosols from onychomycotic toenails. Part II. Clinical and serologic aspects. 1984

    C Abramson and J Wilton

    Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine, Philadelphia 19107.

    The podiatric procedure of burring hyperkeratotic fungal infected toenails results in large quantities of nail dust aerosols. An extremely large percentage (31%) of podiatrists who were analyzed for immunoglobulin E (IgE) by antibody radioimmunoassay were found to have abnormally high levels. Incidence of precipitin antibodies to Trichophyton rubrum in sera of those in practice from 0 to 15 years was 23%, and those in practice 16 years or more was 29%. In this study, podiatrists who were chronically exposed to nail dust aerosols after years of practice presented with symptoms of conjunctivitis, rhinitis, asthma, coughing, hypersensitivity, and impaired lung function.

    Atopy and reaction to nail dust inhalation.

    Ward PE.

    Moore Regional Hospital, Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA. Inhalation of nail dust is a chronic problem facing podiatric physicians. This problem is compounded in physicians who develop allergic reactions to nail dust. This article defines atopy, reviews the characteristics of nail dust, and suggests methods to reduce the potential hazard that nail dust presents to the podiatric physicians and their employees.
