What Does 3-in-1 Air Cleaner Means

This 3 in 1 feature is what makes Guardian Technologies, the manufacturer, proud of the Germguardian AC4825 as it incorporate 3 air purification methods which get the dirty air in and sends the purified air out. The three air filtration stages are : Carbon layer pre-filter, HEPA Filter and UV-C Technology.
In the first stage, large particles like lint, hair and dust which are found indoors are trapped via the pre-filter using activated carbon along with a charcoal filter. Another benefit of the carbon layer is its ability to help remove bad odors like tobacco smoke, cooking and household pets.
The second step is where the True HEPA Filter comes into play. HEPA means high-efficiency particulate air which is an air filter that works mechanically to make the air get throught a fine mesh in order to catch harmful particles. According to Guardian Technologies, this HEPA Filter is able to capture up to 99.97% of airborne allergens such as pet dander, pollen, mold spores and more importantly household dust.
During the third stage, the UV-C light (Ultraviolet light), which is a disinfection method with Titanium Dioxide, works via short-wavelenght to kill airborne germs and bacteria.

Clean Air Delivery Rate

the AC4825 is CADR rated 100+ (Clear Air Delivery Rate), meaning it’s an air purifier cabale of cleaning rooms up to 155 square because it’s able to deliver 100 cubic feet of clean air per minute. The 155 square is sufficient for majority of bedrooms. In order to keep the unit running smoothly, the filters got be vacuumed once every two weeks on average and changed every six/eight months depending on how often you use the air purifier.

Fan Speed

Like all efficient air purifiers, the Germguardian AC4825 is equipped with a fan which you can control its peed. The fan has three speed settings : low, medium and high. The manufacturer mentions that the lowest speed is ultra-quiet. Some customers have noticed that when the fan is on the high speed, you can start to hear white noise. When it’s daytime, I don’t think that it would be a problem, but at night it’s better to turn it to the low level to have a good sleep.

The AC4825’s Design

The look of the Germguardian AC4825 is an absolute success, definitely the best designed air purifier I have seen. Modern looking, sleek lines with a nice dark black casing and lazer blue LED light makes it a nice looking decor which you can put almost anywhere in your home without compromising the interior design.

Germguardian AC4825’s Reputation

This air purifier model is a Best Seller in Amazon in the HEPA Filter Air Purifiers category with more than 4000 customer reviews and a approximatively 4.5 stars rating. This means that many customers are satisfied and have put very positive comments, but I have to mention that I have come across someone who have complained about it because he have scented from te first week the smell of burned plastic. A part from this one, the majority of review are very positive.

Welcome to another men’s fashion post of mine. Today we’ll be looking at the 7 best invicta watches for men. Because Invicta offers some great quality/price timepieces, these are one of the most popular best-selling watches, and which some of them are on sale, that you can offer yourself or your friends and family.
Invicta watches are the topic of debate of many watches forums because of the controversy about its quality and reputation. On this page I’ll list down our list of the most popular Invicta watches with a little comment on each one, so bear with me.

1. Invicta 8926 Pro Diverinvicta-8926

I don’t know when blogs and websites will stop making reviews on this one. The Invicta 8926 is definitely the most popular of all with  1,333 customer reviews  in Amazon. I think there are three main reasons for that : the striking resemblance to the famos Rolex Sumariner, the nice features ( like the Self-winding automatic movements ), and the low price of it especially when on sale as it has reached $75 only.
The Invicta 8926 is also 200m (656 ft.) water resistant, and its case measures 40m in with.

2. Invicta  9211 Speedway

The Invicta Speedway is a design copy success from the American watchmaker. Why I call it a copy? Well some of view may have already recognized or had an impression of deja-vu, the Invicta Speedway is a homage or copy of the Rolex Daytona (which costs  $12,000 ). It’s really hard to distinguish the difference when your not close to it.

3. Invicta 9937 Pro Diver

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Invicta 9937 is like the later version of the 8926 with a more sharper unidirectional coin b-edge bezel. It has a Quality Swiss Automatic Movement, which means it doesn’t need a battery. and is also 656 feet water  resistant. The Case diameter is 40 millimeters and 12 millimeters thick.

4. Invicta 0924 Subaqua

invicta-subaqua-noma-iii-anatomic-chronograph-invicta-0924

Invicta Subaqua is the name of another popular collection from the same brand. Just like the Pro Diver, these watches also destined to diving fans but which prefer big face watches. This Invicta watche’s case diameter measures 50mm and 17mm in thincknes which makes a huge watch. As expected, the water resistance is also there with 200m.

5. Invicta 6986 Pro Diver6986

This is another timepiece from the Pro Diver collection. Unlike the Pro Diver 8926, this one has a bigger face and is 48mm in width. It has a bit of resemblance to the Invicta Venom, but this one is far low in terms of water resistance as it has a rate of 100 m (330 ft) only. Also, the movement of this watch is a quartz movement.

Conclusion

I would like to thank for your reading time and I think that at  least of these Invicta watches has grabbed your attention to think about getting one. I have to say that the Invicta  9211 Speedway is my personal favorite, so what’s yours ?

The Latest Garwood Watch

The Garwood has released recently their new timepiece entitled “360”. I think they named it this way because The Garwood have always designed their watches in a cubic shape, so this is the first circular watch in their catalogue. This is also the first watch from the American watchmaker that doesn’t have a wooden strap. The strap of this watch is made of cotton felt with leather on the inside to make it comfortable on the wrist. The dial face of this model is an oil-painted carbon fiber protected under a sapphire crystal glass.

The Garwood Watches

The Garwood watches are all, except the 360 model, designed with a cubic face and has an arrow shaped hour/minute hand, the same arrow shape found on the brand’s logo. Almost all The Garwood watches have a purple color seconds hand, except for the “Great Dane” and “The Sumo” models which have it painted in red. The purple color on the seconds hand is a great choice as it adds a subtle coloring touch that matches both the black and the white dials of their watches.

Wood types used by The Garwood on their timepieces are mainly American Maple wood like on “The Great Dane”, Zebrawood like on “Wakati” and the Indonesian Sandalwood found on “Kuta”. The clasp is made of a Stainless Steel.

Capitalism and massive production have always given workplace safety and health departments a lot to talk about. Silicosis is another health disease that still remain in the united states in significant numbers.

construction-646918_1280

What is Silicosis

Silicosis is a lung disease caused by inhaling too much of a naturally-occurring crystal that is called silica dust and which can be found mainly in rocks and sand, which means sandblasters, glass workers, and mining workers are exposed to this type of dust.

According to MedlinePlus, there are three types of silicosis : Chronic, Accelerated and Acute silicosis.

Silicosis Cure

Like every progressive disease, looking for the starting point from which the disease comes is the first step to limit the exposure. In order to prevent the disease from getting worse, you must stop the source of silica exposure. Healthline reported that there is no specific medical treatment to silicosis. Only respiratory infections and symptoms can be treated or reduced by using antibiotics and cough medicine.Oxygen masks are also used by some silicosis sufferers.

Other methods to prevent Silicosis :

  • When drilling, grinding, cutting use wet methods and water sprays.
  • For cleaning surfaces, avoid using compressed air
  • Eat and drink away from crystalline silica dust.
  • Use local ventilation and blasting cabinets.
