What kind of allergens, pathogens and contaminants can Airocide remove from the air?
Our patented bioconversion process annihilates viruses, bacteria, fungi, mold, pollen, dander and more. Contaminants are destroyed at a molecular level. What’s more, Airocide obliterates most Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) – the harmful gases emitted by products like aerosol sprays, cleaning supplies, disinfectants, hobby supplies, carpets, dry-cleaned clothing, building materials, paints and paint thinner, strippers, pesticides and even air fresheners.
Do the UV-C lights inside Airocide have harmful effect?
Airocide doesn’t have the negative consequences of UV-C technology:
- Airocide uses 254 nm UV light source with no ozone production.
- The lamps are seated in an enclosed reaction chamber so there is no direct UV radiation.
- Due to their location in the reaction chamber the surface of the lamps cannot become dirty and their efficiency won’t decrease.
- The constant operation maximises the lifetime of the lamps which will drop if the unit is turned on/off regularly.
Does Airocide emit ozone?
No. Airocide doesn’t use or emit ozone during operation.
How is Airocide different from other air purifiers?
The power of Airocide does not come from filters. Once harmful airborne pathogens pass through the Airocide reaction chamber, a densely packed matrix of highly reactive catalyst destroy pathogens at a molecular level. The process involves exposing titanium-dioxide coated media to a UV light catalyst, to form highly reactive hydroxyl radicals inside the PCO chamber. The only emission is water vapor and trace amounts of carbon dioxide. Contaminants cannot escape from the closed reaction chamber and as nothing is captured there is nothing to clean. All that exits is crisp, clean air with zero ozone emissions.
How much Airocide do I need?
Airocide home units are well-suited for smaller rooms and offices. Larger living rooms, large kitchens and great rooms require higher capacity units, including the APS 1000 XL and if appropriate the GCS-50.
Industrial units are designed for warehouses, restaurants, conference centers, lobbies, fitness centers, event spaces, locker rooms, retail, salons, spas, veterinary clinics, dance clubs, member clubs, event spaces, theatres, churches, schools, gymnasiums, airports, bus terminals and many more.
What kind of maintenance is required?
The reaction chambers need to be replaced annually. Newer units will prompt you with an indicator light when it is time to change it (about once a year).
The unit emitted a smell when I initially turned it on, is this normal? How long does this last?
For the first few days you might notice a smell from your unit. This is normal and caused by the UVC lamps heating up for the first time. It will dissipate in a few days.
Where can I put the spent reaction chambers?
You can return it back in the box of your new reaction chamber.
What does the ‘auto’ button do?
It controls the Automatic setting of the device. The Automatic setting programs the unit to run on high at most times and then transitions to low for a slower, quieter speed. The setting is controlled by a light sensor built within the unit: as the room darkens the unit adjusts to low for better sleep and when enough light is present in the room, it adjusts to high for them most the highest air cleaning efficiency.
What is the purpose of the pre-filters in some specific Airocide devices?
The NASA-founded technology is based on filterless air sanitation. However, the APS-200 PM 2.5 and the new HD line are equipped with pre-filters due to the continuous developments. As for the APS-200 PM 2.5, the goal is the more efficient protection against dust and airborne particulates. The new HD industrial products are appropriate for environments with heavily contaminated air where extreme concentration of dust, fat or pollen occurs; the pre-filter ensures the protection of the reaction chamber even under such conditions.
Will Airocide remove dog, cat, etc. hair?
Only the APS-200 PM 2.5 can remove the pet dander.
How many fans are inside an Airocide?
Airocide has one internal fan. Using Coanda-effect aerodynamics, air is drawn in through the front vent, accelerated through two catalytic reaction chambers and then amplified to exit at the back center of the unit. This propels air further into the room while using the least amount of power.
How much noise does the Airocide emit?
This is subjective but it’s comparable to a fan on low speed or the humming of a computer.
What’s the recommended placement of the Airocide for optimum results?
We recommend Airocide be placed in your bedroom where you spend the most time. For optimal results the unit should be placed from 36 to 72 inches off the floor. Do not place Airocide in an enclosed space like a bookshelf.
Where can I find the serial number?
Does the grill require any special care/cleaning?
You should dust your unit just as you would any other item in your home. If you happen to spill something on the outside of your Airocide use a damp, clean cloth to wipe it down.
What’s the delivery method after payment?
The units are delivered by GLS at our cost.
Does the device need to be operated continuously?
The continuous operation is optimal because it keeps low the total germ count.
I am interested in the purification system for a school classroom, which unit should I choose?
With a standard ceiling height of 3 meters, 150 m³ of air needs to be cleaned. Two home units with a capacity of 46 m3/hour provide an air disinfection cycle of almost 3 hours. The APS-300 or APS-200 are perfect choices. Alternatively, the new high performance HD series, which is quieter due to the protection of the reaction chamber and the insulation of the machine, is absolutely suitable for continuous air disinfection of rooms of this size.
