SAN DIEGO, Jan. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For responsible adults, vaping is a lifestyle choice; for everyone else, the clouds emitted can be invasive. Leveraging advanced technology to eliminate emissions and mitigate the stigma associated with vaping nicotine or cannabis, PHILTER™Labs, Inc today debuted a sophisticated, micro-personal filter for secondhand vapor. Developed by medical device experts with more than 20 years of experience, PHILTER’s first-of-a-kind technology provides responsible adults the option to enjoy vaping in a traditional manner or to filter their emission clouds based on a particular environment.
“Those who choose to vape have long been subjected to stigma, judgment and social isolation due to their tell-tale vapor plume which creeps and invades the personal space of those around them,” said Christos Nicolaidis, CEO, Philter Labs. “With 1 in 20 US adults identifying as vape users, that is quite a bit of secondhand vapor. Until now, there has not been a viable, sophisticated solution that vapers could feel comfortable using without drawing even more attention to themselves. With PHILTER, we’ve used advanced, aerodynamic principals to create personal filters that are small, convenient and easy to incorporate for everyday use.”
New Inventions for a New Society
A technology company pioneering a new category of personal air filters, Philter Labs specifically built Zero-5 technology, a patented multi-stage filtration process to not only reduce emissions but also capture and dissolve the particulates and pollutants commonly found in secondhand vapor. This additional filtering feature is an important piece when working to towards the company mission of reducing and even eliminating many of the potentially harmful emissions from secondhand vapor.
While the proprietary technology is exceeding initial expectations during internal testing, the products are now undergoing controlled performance evaluation testing with an independent accredited laboratory.
“These personal filters empower those who vape with the option to filter their secondhand emissions, keeping the air around them smoke-free to not only respect their loved ones and the general public but most importantly, preserve their own personal freedoms when it comes to their right to vape,” added Nicolaidis.
PHILTER Accessories for the Modern-Day Vaper The first brand to offer distinct products designed specifically to filter and eliminate secondhand vape and smoke, PHILTER launched two accessories to filter vape clouds whenever the need might arise.
PHILTER Pocket: a slim, handheld filter
PHILTER PHLIP: transforms vaporizer into a filtering solution
The Philter Mobile Application: Augmented Reality
The PHILTER mobile application is a free entertainment platform created for PHILTER customers which includes links to buy products online, find a local vape shop or dispensary carrying PHILTER goods as well as incorporates Augmented Reality to activate custom video experiences from select product packaging.
