Filtering SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) virus from the hospital and work environment:

At this writing, very little is known about SARS. From what has been published by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and by the World Health Organization, this virus is believed to be highly contagious, is apparently capable of living for several hours or days outside of the body on such items as door handles and is believed to be transmitted from one person to another by sneezing. Some say that the incubation period is between 10 and 12 days. It is too early to say if the Bubble Bunker, particularly the hospital bed version, capable of isolating the infected patient from the rest of the patient population. Our HEPA filtration systems are capable of filtering out particles and bacteria as little as .5 microns in size, however some published reports have stated that the SARS virus is less than .1 microns long. Our system can filter approximately 98.5% of all particles of .1 micron - but not 100%. Nevertheless, it is believed that the virus is normally contained in droplets far exceeding the current .5 micron size of our filtration system, which may indeed be a fist step defense against this possible pandemic. We are presently working on several hospital security systems which not only filter the air but also sterilizes it, at the same time.

This Bubble Bunker® measures 8' x 9' x 5.5' high and hold between two and three people. It is designed with a 110 Volt inflator/filtration system which incorporates a HEPA filter.


HEPA filters, which were originally developed by the Atomic Energy Commission in 1943, filter particles as small as .3 microns and are 97.97% efficient. Anthrax spores are larger than .5 microns.

  • Human Hair ........... (70 - 100 microns)

  • Human Sneeze .... (10 - 100 microns)
  • Pet skin flakes .... (0.5 - 100 microns)
  • Pollen .................... (5 - 100 microns)
  • Anthrax spores.....(5-20 microns)
  • Plant Spores .........(6 - 100 microns)
  • Mold....................... (2 - 20 microns)
  • Smoke ................. (.01 - 1 micron)
  • Dust Mites ........... (0.5 - 50 microns)
  • Household Dust .. (.05 - 100 microns)
  • Skin Flakes ............. (0.4 - 10 microns)
  • Bacteria.................... (0.35 - 10 microns)

Viruses are not filtered by HEPA filters, since viruses are much smaller than what is possible to filter. It should be noted that a HEPA filter does not kill the organism, but rather, it traps the organism within the filter. It is possible for the organism to break free at some future time. For this reason, it is important for the user to wear protective clothing and/or gloves when changing filters.

Primary Causes of Death from Disease

  • Tuberculosis - 2 million deaths per year

  • Diarrheal Diseases - 1.8 million per year
  • Malaria - 1 million deaths per year
  • Hepatitis B - 1 million deaths per year
  • Measles - 900,000 deaths per year
  • Aids - 700,000 deaths per year
  • Influenza - 250,000 deaths per year
  • Yellow Fever - 30,000 deaths per year
  • Dengue Fever - 22,000 deaths per year
  • SARS - Total deaths under 1,000, presantly contained.
  • H5N1 Avian Flu - under 100 dead, though with a general fear that it can potentially mutate and spread rapidly.

Immediately after the collapse, the entire city was blanketed with dust fallout that ranged in thickness from a thin film, to several inches thick. This dust was later determined to be a low grade health hazard containing a variety of materials including asbestos. Above photographs taken September 11, 2001 about 30 minutes after WTC1 went down.
