Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless gas produced by burning material containing carbon. CO poisoning can cause brain damage and, in severe cases, death. You can't see it, smell it, or taste it, but carbon monoxide can kill you. Hundreds of people die each year from carbon monoxide poisoning.
CO is the leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in America. You can't detect this odorless, tasteless, and colorless gas, known as the Silent Killer, which claims more than 2000 lives each year. One of the most deadly devices is the popular propane-fired space heater. This device alone is responsible for hundreds of deaths each year.
Carbon Monoxide Catalytic Device
Our New Mexico Research Facility has successfully tested the Clear Skies CS-200 Series Catalytic Dervice in a variety of CO applications including propane fired space heaters. We were able to eliminate virtually all of the harmful Carbon Monoxide (CO) emissions and significantly reduce all of the other emissions. The catalytic device is automatically activated by the heat generated by the space heater. The result is an air stream that is virtually free of Carbon Monoxide.
After formal testing of the prototype unit is completed by an accredited third party test lab such as Factory Mutual or Underwriters Laboratory, Clears Skies will be offerring a propane-fired industrial space heater equipped with a Clear Skies CS-200 Catalytic Filter. This will be a private label product sold through standard retail outlets. Consumer direct retrofit kits are also being considered.
Testing of the CS-200-1 Prototype Space Heater was conducted at the Adherent laboratories in Albuquerque. The Catalytic test article in the space heater was a patented Clear Skies reticulated alumina ceramic structure with a Paladium Catalytic Coating.Although the target emission in the test was carbon monoxide, other emission in the exhaust stream were monitored and recorded. In the first test, the space heater was operated without the catalytic filter to establish emission levels. The % of reduction with the filter installed is shown below:
CO (Carbon Monoxide
NO (Nitric Oxide)
NO2 (Nitrogen Dioxide)
NOx (Nitrogen Oxide)
