Eliminate Harmful Contaminants with Air Ionization Technology
Air and Surface Sterilization
According to the EPA, Americans spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors, where the concentrations of some pollutants are often 2 to 5 times higher than typical outdoor concentrations. Although the importance of indoor air quality is not a new concept, it is drawing a lot more attention amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Assessing your space’s indoor air quality has never been more important.
Commercial HVAC systems typically filter air before it is distributed throughout an occupied space. In addition to upgrading to high efficiency air filters, air ionization technology can help reduce viruses and contaminants in the air and on surfaces. These types of air purification systems are available in portable standalone units as well as in-duct models that are installed directly into your existing HVAC system.
Photocatalytic Oxidation (PCO) and Bi-Polar Ionization are two types of ionization technologies that address concerns related to viruses, bacteria, and mold both in the air and on surfaces.
Bipolar ionization utilizes specialized tubes that are installed into existing HVAC systems and emit ions into the air in occupied spaces. The technology utilizes a continuous and active process to proactively reduce viruses, bacteria, mold, and other contaminants in the air and on surfaces.
Photocatalytic Oxidation (PCO) utilizes a UVC light source and a titanium dioxide honeycomb to create a photocatalytic process that destroys airborne and surface contaminants.
When microscopic oxygen and water molecules in the air enter the purification units, they pass through a honeycomb matrix. While inside the matrix, the molecules are transformed into friendly-yet-powerful oxidizers. When they’re released back into the air, the supercharged molecules seek and rapidly destroy 90% of airborne and 99% of surface contaminants, viruses, fungi, mold, and odor-causing bacteria.
