Air Purification
Why should I be concerned about Air Quality?

We are breath micro-organisms and other air pollutants in our body everyday, 90% of this stuff is in the indoor-air, that making us sick, is less than 1micron (a human hair is approximately 100 microns in diameter), making even the best of filter useless. Million microscopic irritants, or allergens, find their way into your home and office every day. They include dust, pollen, pet hair and dander, dust mites, mildew, lint, fungus, tobacco smoke, cooking grease and bacteria. They are so small that our nose and throat cannot filter them out, and they can get deep into our lungs. Your AC system can be one of the most beneficial assets to controlling air quality in your home/building. BY adding UV light purifying system and improved filter to your AC system can make for optimal health benefits.

How does a UV light purify the air in my building?

In order for Ultraviolet light to be effective in destroying biological contaminants in the moving air-steam, there has to be a specific amount of UV power delivered to the contaminant for a specific amount time.
Contaminants require varying dosages of UV energy (µw) to destroy. Typically, bacteria are the weakest contaminants, requiring the least amount of energy. As a general rule, a virus is usually more resilient to UV energy, requiring more than twice the amount of UV energy than bacteria. A spore is typically the hardest to destroy, require more than 5X the amount of UV energy compared to a virus.
Sanuvox proprietary Mercury Vapor Ultraviolet Lamps produce two UV wavelengths. UVC (Germicidal 254nm) and UVV (Oxidizing 187nm) pure fused quartz glass that are combined into one single UV Lamp emitter.
UVC energy attack the DNA of a cell, penetrating the cell membrane, breaking the DNA structure of the microorganism, inhibiting reproduction. UVC is effective in destroying biological contaminants and odors such as mold, bacteria and viruses. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends this method for destroying viruses such as tuberculosis.
UVV (Vacuum UV) is used for Oxidization; this is the portion of the Lamp that will destroy chemicals and odors, such as cigarette smoke, VOCs, diesel fumes, formaldehyde, amongst others.
Both UV wavelengths work together to destroy thousands of biological and chemical contaminants that continually circulate within the building’s envelope.
