Title
(EN) METHODS AND APPARATUS FOR DE-NATURING HOUSE DUST MITE (HDM) ALLERGEN
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DESTINES A LA DENATURATION DE L'ALLERGENE DES ACARIENS DETRITICOLES
Abstract
(EN)
The invention provides that HDM (House Dust Mite) and its allergens can be treated in the breeding grounds in the home (fabrics, seats, chairs, mattresses, pillows, sheets, blankets, cushions, etc.) by steam treatment followed by hot air drying. The invention also discloses that these articles can be specially adapted to receive an injection device so that the steam and hot air can be injected deep into the article core so as to penetrate outwardly to the surface to treat and heat the entire article to a high allergen de-naturing temperature.
(FR)
Selon la présente invention, les acariens détriticoles et leurs allergènes peuvent être soumis, au niveau de leurs foyers de reproduction dans les domiciles (notamment les tissus, les sièges, les chaises, les matelas, les oreillers, les draps, les couvertures, les coussins et autres), à un traitement à la vapeur suivi d'un séchage à l'air chaud. Ces articles peuvent être spécialement adaptés à recevoir un dispositif d'injection permettant d'injecter la vapeur et l'air chaud profondément au coeur de l'article afin qu'ils se diffusent vers l'extérieur jusqu'à la surface pour traiter et chauffer tout l'article à une température élevée permettant de dénaturer l'allergène.
