AiroCide® Photocatalytic Air Purifying Systems are the only air purifiers that completely destroy airborne bacteria, mold, fungi, viruses, volatile organic compounds (VOC's) and odors. Because the technology in these systems was developed by NASA, they are not filtering systems and produce no harmful byproducts like ozone; they are superior to any other air purifiers or sanitizers on the market. The AiroCide technology is used to provide clean air in a variety of industries including perishable foods, beverages and flowers; dental and medical/healthcare; consumer and many more.The AiroCide technology originated when NASA needed help with food growth experiments as part of its extended space flight research. One of NASA's Commercial Space Centers in Madison, WI, the Wisconsin Center for Space Automation and Robotics (WCSAR), along with the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW), developed a unique Photocatalytic oxidation technology that removed a gas called ethylene that makes plants deteriorate. The patented technology combines two known pathogen-killing techniques, Photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) and ultraviolet light to destroy harmful airborne microbes. A titanium dioxide photocatalyst is used in the PCO process. These active elements will oxidize VOC's and kill and decompose airborne pathogens. The PCO process used in AiroCide air purifying systems is truly innovative and not found in any other air cleaning products.
Ethylene gas is the natural occurring hormone that triggers fruits, vegetables and flowers to ripen. In the case of a barrel of apples when one apple begins to ripen it releases ethylene - nature's signal - for the others to ripen. Not surprisingly, effective removal of ethylene gas has been proven to lead to extended life for apples and just about every other fruit or vegetable in existence. In fact, AiroCide was developed and used by NASA for this very purpose - growing crops in space. The technology has been put to use on various space shuttle missions, on board the international space station and today can be found protecting some of the largest and best known wholesale and retail food service organizations in the United States like SuperValu, Whole Foods Super Markets, Del Monte and others. These organizations use AiroCide for one reason: it works; saving them thousands if not millions of dollars each year by extending the life of these items in their stores. How? Because AiroCide deployment literally provides these businesses with extra days -sometimes weeks to sell their fruits, vegetables and flowers before they turn in colour, texture or flavour.
Numerous air purification applications exist in both institutional and private practice healthcare settings with several identified as eliminating cross contamination of airborne diseases and pathogens. Healthcare applications like paediatricians' clinics, immuno-compromised areas of specialty and critical care and needs for isolating patients all benefit from clean air. This is because AiroCide eliminates any biological material - regardless of size - that comes in contact with its proprietary matrix, oxidizing the organic matter thereby releasing only crisp clean fresh air. The technology has shown meaningful reductions in infections and diseases causing in healthcare applications such as operating theaters, Intensive Care Units (ICU's) and hospital rooms resulting in lower post operative infections and nosocomial diseases.
With dangerous culprits like botrytis and ethylene gas in the air it's no wonder leaders in the floral industry are implementing AiroCide PPT air purifiers in coolers, shipping and handling areas to protect their valuable assets.
We provide solution which achieves a high performance decorative, protective, waterproofing surface coatings that gives cost effectiveness, safety and functionality required for your school or institutions. Along with providing durable and easy to clean surfaces we can help improve safety standards by providing anti-skid around pool areas, basketball, volleyball courts and exterior paving.
By eliminating all harmful allergens and micro-organisms, AiroCide can improved air quality of its designated area where it's installed. The removal of these substances can reduce or eliminate red itchy eyes, dry throats, allergic reactions and VOC fatigue at the end of the day.
AiroCide photocatalytic air purifying technology is a great way to ensure clean and healthy air inside hotel rooms that can harbour germs and expose the business and recreational traveller. The technology creates a unique opportunity for you to greet your guest with the feeling of cool clean crisp air, a night's sleep free from sneezing, coughing and other allergic symptoms and provides meaningful protection to safeguard to your real estate investment.
The beverage-making process, whether it's beer, wine or orange juice is a delicate process. AiroCide PPT air purifying systems can ensure no airborne contaminants will disrupt the process. Winemakers all over the world have discovered the perfect way to protect their precious wine as it ages in barrel storage caves and warehouses. AiroCide PPT air purifiers kill airborne mould in the wineries that can help create a compound called TCA which cause the distinctive "tainted" flavour of wine and can cost the industry millions of dollars.
