OUR PRODUCTS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED BY SPECIALISTS IN AIR PURIFICATION TECHNOLOGY
The air we breathe contains a number of microorganisms, moulds, bacteria, and viruses and these often create odours, lead to mould growth, and spread infections.
When microorganisms in the air settle on surfaces, they continue to grow and create odour issues, as well as increase the risk of infections. Standard cleaning and disinfecting procedures only offer a temporary solution to these issues.
Airborne microorganisms will continue to settle and recolonise on surfaces even after they are cleaned, further increasing the risk of infections and odour problems.
THE HISTORY OF OUR TECHNOLOGY
There are several types of UV – UV-A and UV-B occur naturally and are found in the sun’s rays. UV-C, or ultraviolet germicidal radiation (UVGI)this is what we utilise in AirSteril technology, ensuring that the nucleic acids in microorganisms are destroyed, and their DNA is disrupted by the UV radiation within the AirSteril units.
UVGI was first introduced commercially in the 1920’s to control the tuberculosis outbreaks, however, it eventually fell out of favour when antibiotics were developed. With the resistance to pathogens now becoming more common, the effectiveness of antibiotics is being challenged, so there is growing interest again in UVGI.
An AirSteril unit uses a combination of the most effective air and surface purification and sterilisation technologies to produce the best possible results. Each of our units has varied chamber sizes, lamp outputs, dwell times, and flow rates adjusted to fit each particular environment.
The process of germicidal irradiation by dual UV light freshens and cleans the air by killing airborne pathogens, bacteria, viruses, mould spores, fungi, and allergens by breaking down odours and harmful gases.
