UVAIRx technology moves air treatment out of the passive mode and into the active.
It’s a major advancement, for it means air must no longer pass through a treatment chamber to be cleansed of viruses, bacterium, mold spores, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other contaminants. THe UVAIRx unit actively outputs a continuous stream of molecules which attack and destroy the pathogens on a 7X24 basis, in a highly effective process, which is safe for both humans and animals.
The difference is the active photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) technology of the UVAIRx core.
PCO was originally developed by NASA to purify the air in the International Space Station. How does it work? The heart of the UVAIRx product is a low wattage UV light bulb surrounded by a solid structure (the “catalyst”) coated with Titanium Dioxide and other nano-sized elements. When the UV light is turned on, the catalyst is irradiated and a gaseous state is created directly above its surface (often called “metastate”). As air passes over the metastate, large clusters of positively and negatively charged ions are formed. As these ion clusters are released into an interior environment they can be attracted to a negatively or positively charged cell of a pathogen (virus, bacteria), or chemically interact with a volatile organic compound (VOCs). For pathogens, a small electrical charge is released piercing the cell of the pathogen and killing it---- even a cell as small as a virus. For VOCs, the multi-clustered ions chemically transform the VOC into carbon dioxide and water vapor. UVAIRx has increased the effectiveness of its PCO process by its unique configuration and catalyst design.
