Airtemp Air Steriliser.. Kills airborne viruses — Breathe the purest air

Airtemp Ultra Plasma Ion Bipolar device generates a large amount of positive and negative ions that sterilise indoor areas. 

The plasma discharged by the electrodes is decomposing water molecules present in the air generating hydrogen ions (H+) and oxygen ions (O2-). H⁺ ion and O2- ion become in a cluster ions in a group of water molecules and transformed into OH Hydroxyl Radicals, an active substance with very strong oxidation power.
OH Hydroxyl Radicals react almost instantaneously with viruses, bacteria and super bacteria, pollens, and other airborne and surface-borne pathogens and toxins.

It is effective in eliminating the coronaviruses (Covid Family Such as SARS-CoV2 (COVID-19)), the OH Hydroxyl Radicals disrupt the lipid envelope around the virus and inactivate the protein used to enter human cells. Hydroxyl Radicals also penetrate the interior of the virus and disrupt the genome (RNA content).
These reactions render the virus completely harmless and unable to infect humans and animals.

'Nature Detergent': Cleaners and steriliser of the earth!

Eminent Studies

According to Dr. John Oxford, internationally recognised virologist and professor at the Institute of Cell and Molecular Sciences at St. Bartholomew’s and The Royal London Hospital, Queen Mary’s School of Medicine and Dentistry in London, bipolar ionisation has proven to be effective against a number of viruses: H1N1 influenza, H5N1 avian influenza (bird flu), and corona. Dr. Oxford explains, that the ions attach to airborne pathogens, such as viruses causing a chemical reaction on the surface of the cell membrane. This deactivates the viruses, rendering them harmless, so they can no longer spread or cause infection.

In 2017, the Journal of Aerosol Science conducted a study on the effect of air ions on aerosolised MS2 bacteriophage. The MS2 bacteriophage is commonly used as a surrogate for the influenza virus and is now being used as a surrogate for other RNA viruses, such as SARS CoV-1 and SARS CoV-2, the virus causing COVID-19. The results demonstrated the antiviral efficacy of bipolar ionisation on the SARS CoV-2 surrogate.

To test the virus-destroying power of the Plasma Air bipolar ionisation solutions, Kitasato Research Center for Environmental Science, based in Tokyo Japan, conducted a series of controlled experiments to investigate how Plasma Air ionisers deactivate an airborne virus. The ionisers were tested against the single-strand RNA envelope structured virus H1N1 (Influenza A), which is similar to coronaviruses. The results showed a reduction in the virus after one hour.

Also, a third-party test conducted by Microbac MicroBio Test Division show deactivation of 99.9% of the Human Coronavirus (smilar to MERS & SARS). Other international studies, demonstrated that Plasma Air technology reduced other common pathogens such as Staphylococcus aureus (Staph), Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), and Escherichia coli (E. coli). Read the test results.

NOTE: Due to the small size of viruses, many filtration technologies are unable to trap viral particles. As bipolar ionisation is non-selective, it offers a unique and safe solution to kill airborne viruses 24/7, helping to reduce the risk of disease and infectious outbreaks.

    Advanced Hydroxyl Radicals Technology For Disinfection

    Airtemp Antivirus uses a new, innovative, and disruptive patented technology that efficiently generates and expands Hydroxyl Radicals (OH·) in order to trigger Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOP) for the elimination of up to 99.9% of pathogenic microorganisms (viruses and bacteria), at the same time as reducing Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and PM particles.

    Hydroxyl Radicals are not only highly efficient when it comes to disinfecting both the air and surfaces, but they are also a method which is completely harmless to humans, according to a study published in the scientific journal IJOER “International Journal of Engineering Research and Science”.

    In the 1970s, Military Defence used OH· in the atmosphere to develop this technology for CBR (Chemical/Biological/Radiological) warfare. It was first commercialized in the 1990s for use in European hospitals and has proved to be very effective at removing harmful substances such as bacteria, germs and viruses, harmful gases, mould, and respiratory allergens, which can all lead to a contaminated and harmful environment to humans.

    Within the Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), Hydroxyl Radicals (OH·), when used in small concentrations, can be employed to carry out biocidal functions on viruses, bacteria, allergens and mould, in order to erode any organic compounds found in the air and turn them into minerals or harmless water-soluble organic compounds.

     

    The OH· Hydroxyl Radical is the most important natural oxidant in tropospheric chemistry. This molecule is often referred to as the atmosphere's "detergent", as it reacts with a large number of pollutants to kick-start the purification process. It also plays an important role in eliminating Greenhouse Gases, such as Carbon Dioxide and Methane.

    Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOP) are particularly powerful as they are able to destroy pollutants without concentrating or transferring harmful substances into the surrounding environment. This allows for a total or almost total mineralisation of all organic pollutants, meaning that the vast majority of organic compounds are destroyed, especially when dealing with non-biodegradable compounds such as Organochlorines, PCBs, PAHs, etc. It's also a very clean and safe technology.

    Hydroxyl radicals have excellent advantages over the 3 main chemical disinfectants which are made using chlorine, alkalis and amoni-alcohol-alkali:

    • Absence of selectivity when it comes to pathogenic microorganisms, due to the high oxidation potential of 2.8V (slightly less than fluorine 3.08V).

    • OH processing time is very short. The OH· chemical reaction rate is 107 times greater than other oxidants, such as ozone, peroxide, or chlorine.

    • They are considered to be an "eco oxidant", as Hydroxyl Radicals naturally decompose into water (H2O) and oxygen (O2), without leaving behind any residual oxidants once their biochemical reactions have finished.

    Airtemp Antivirus works by purifying and disinfecting air and surfaces by means of Hydroxyl Radicals, which react in the following way when they come into contact with pollutants:

    • Breaks down the protective cell-membranes of viruses and bacteria (lipid reaction).

    • Alters the genetic information in viruses and bacteria (lipid peroxidation reaction).

    • Oxidizes Volatile Organic Compounds VOCs, converting them into heavier particles that automatically fall to the ground.

    • Decomposes particles suspended in the air.

    Once the oxidation process has begun, a “respiratory explosion” effect occurs, which consists of a series of cascade reactions that produce more Hydroxyl Radicals and thus accelerates the elimination process of any viruses and bacteria.

    In this way, Aitemp Antivirus produces a chain effect to effectively purify and disinfect the air and any surfaces of up to 94m³.

    Airtemp Antivirus decomposes water molecules present in the air via the patented powerful Bipolar Ultra Plasma Ion producing +&- ions to generate a constant and harmless production of Hydroxyl Radicals, and all by maintaining Ozone emissions very very low concentrations (<0.02 ppm) .

    The ozone emissions emitted which is certified by FDA, is below the concentration limit established by the WHO in their 2020 Emission Limit Values (ELV) for the general public for exposures of up to 8 hours.

     Therefore, it is a safe,effective and harmless method for quickly eliminating pathogenic microorganisms suspended in the air or deposited on any surfaces.
