MORE THAN JUST AN AIR PURIFIER
While “passive” air purifiers filter pollutants through air circulation, our system is an “active” system and works differently by using an advanced form of photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) technology (originally used by NASA to provide safe air for astronauts aboard the International Space Station). Our Puraclenz powered active system produces an unprecedented volume of positive and negative ions for a PCO device resulting in greater cleaning coverage in a typical indoor setting thereby deactivating pathogens not only in the air around us but also that manual cleaning may have missed. PCO is a process similar to the one that occurs naturally when UV rays in sunlight react with air molecules in the atmosphere after a lightning strike.
This increased volume of (already present) ions** deactivates contaminants in mid-air. The Puraclenz technology was designed to deactivate pathogens before they reach other people in the room or settle on surfaces, or reach a traditional air purifier that utilizes filters. A single unit will clean the air and surfaces in a space up to 3,000 sq. ft, 24/7, with no training and minimal maintenance***.
ACTIVE CLEANING TECHNOLOGY
Puraclenz’s next-gen ionization technology proactively cleans the air and surfaces in your environment.
ACTIVELY PURIFIES AIR AND SURFACES.
Using air as a medium to deliver ions allows the Puraclenz system to clean the air, including respiratory droplets and hard-to-reach surfaces missed by hand-cleaning or HEPA filters. This active process is scientifically proven by lab studies conducted with our products.
TRADITIONAL PASSIVE AIR PURIFICATION VS. THE PURACLENZ SYSTEM
When someone coughs or sneezes in a room being treated with passive air purifiers, such as HEPA filters, any pathogens (such as the virus that causes COVID-19) must move through the space back to the fan unit where it is captured by a filter.
While this approach is* effective, HEPA and other filtering systems must be sized and placed appropriately in order to be effective. With portable units, a separate unit is almost always required for each room. In contrast, the ions generated by the Puraclenz system are designed to deactivate pathogens efficiently before reaching other people in the room and a single unit can cover multiple rooms and up to 3,000 sq ft.
*Properly sized and placed HEPA systems have been shown to drop pathogenic loads in an indoor space by approximately 50% over a one hour period.
** Ions are a naturally occurring phenomenon and are always present in the air around us
