The Importance of Proximity and Intensity When Irradiating Pathogens
Intensity plays a role in the effective irradiation of airborne contaminants. Due to the size of certain microorganisms they require higher doses of UVC to become inert. The Inverse square law states that light is less effective the farther away from the source. We have designed all our products to maximize the intensity inside the unit by using multiple UVC
Why UVC LED Bulbs are Not Yet a Substitute for Traditional UVC Bulbs
AIR is focused on providing innovative technology using only the highest-quality materials. UVC LED bulbs have potential to be a substitute for traditional mercury UVC bulbs however, they still have many drawbacks. LED bulbs lack the equivalent intensity of traditional mercury bulbs. This becomes an issue when using them to irradiate pathogens as intensity plays a critical role. Approximately 50
Why is Dwell Time Important?
Dwell time plays a critical role in the effective irradiation of pathogens. Larger microorganisms require longer exposure to UVC for them to be successfully irradiated. If the Dwell time inside the equipment it too short, pathogens can remain active and cause potential contamination. Air Sniper equipment has been designed to generate proper dwell time using multiple UVGI chambers inside the
New Product: The Front Access Inflow 10/20
AIR introduces a new product! Meet the Front Access Inflow 10/20. The Front Access Inflow was designed for facilities that have a smaller HVAC units and limited space. The Front Access Inflow is composed of the same reflective material and UVC bulbs but on a smaller scale. The Front Access Inflow has one front panel where all the bulbs can
FDA Declares Ozone Ineffective in a Concentration Safe for Humans and Animals
The FDA released a statement regarding the use of ozone as a germicide. The statement explains that ozone can be an effective germicide but requires a concentration that is unsafe for humans and animals. This statement by the FDA further emphasizes the harmful effects of the use of ozone inside a facility. Read the full statement here: https://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/cdrh/cfdocs/cfcfr/CFRSearch.cfm?FR=801.415

We would like to thank everyone who came by our booth at the show to learn about our products as well as our clients who made the effort to come see us at our booth. We are proud to provide our customers with only the best solutions. The show was also the first time customers were able to see our
Why Air Sniper Equipment Does Not Use HEPA Filters
There are many air sanitization units that use HEPA filters. HEPA filters capture pathogens rather than kill them. HEPA filters are not cost-effective as one unit can include multiple filters that require frequent replacement. This is not a practical solution for facilities if there are many units installed within the facility. The removal of dirty HEPA filters from the units
Ultimate Solutions for Your Grow
Air Sniper offers complete solutions for your facility. Each solution is customizable for specific client needs while providing ultimate protection from contamination. Stand-alone solution – This solution incorporates the use of the Air Sniper Pro, Elite, or Ultra to be installed in grow rooms, trim rooms, processing rooms or other areas where contaminants are present. Inline and wall mounted solution
Important Characteristics for Optimal UV Sanitization
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
AIR Attends Lift & Co Toronto June 7 to 9, 2019
AIR is excited to exhibit at Lift & Co Toronto in June! Visit booth 1141 to see our in-line units, stand-alone units, dashboard system, as well as a new product! Be the first to check them out before anyone else!
Equipment Calculator Coming Soon!
AIR is currently developing an equipment calculator! Website visitors enter dimensions of the rooms they are interested in installing Air Sniper equipment and the calculator provides an equipment recommendation.
Don’t Let Contamination Kill Your Crops
New facilities often have a lower risk for contamination due to the unused materials. As more crops are grown the rooms become more susceptible to airborne contaminants. Air Sniper ensures contaminants are never present in your facility. Don’t wait until a crop is lost!
Not enough room in your HVAC for in-line units?
Air Sniper offers a variety of air sanitization solutions to meet the needs of every facility. We understand that an in-line solution may not be suitable for some facilities due to limited space or unique design of the HVAC. AIR offers three different sizes of small and mighty wall-mounted solutions to kill airborne pathogens before they contaminate your crops.
Air Sniper Plug & Play Design
All Air Sniper units have been designed as a plug & play system. This allows easy installation as further electrical work is not required. The plug & play system also allows the location of the units to be changed with ease if required.
Air Sniper conducts further third-party testing
Air Sniper conducts further third-party testing while operating within a licensed production facility. The room where the equipment was installed had previously tested positive for microbials. The results of the tests after the Air Sniper units were installed confirmed that the Air Sniper Ultra had successfully removed 100% of the microbials previously present in the room. For a full list
