AIR engineers used their extensive knowledge of UV technology to ensure our products are effective at irradiating pathogens.
Reflectivity – UV is not reflective in the same way that light is reflective. This means that UV reflective material is required within the units to ensure irradiation of pathogens.
Proximity – To achieve maximum irradiation of pathogens the UV bulbs must be near the air passing through. If the bulbs are not within proximity to the pathogens, maximum irradiation will not be achieved.
Dwell time – Dwell time is required to sufficiently irradiate pathogens passing through the unit. If adequate dwell time is not present many pathogens will remain active after exiting the unit resulting in possible contamination.
