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!
•OH Hydroxyl Radical has been extensively tested for its extraordinary disinfection power
•OH Hydroxyl Radicals technology has been extensively tested by numerous accredited laboratories around the world, including USA, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Europe just to cite one the UK Health Protection Agency.
•OH Hydroxyl Radicals has been proven effective at eliminating up to 99.9999% of highly concentrated, aerosolised virus.
The Ultra Plasma Ion devise is embedded on our ready-to-use Aircare Steriliser & Air purifiers products or can be can be wall, ceiling or desktop mounted, retrofitted in ventilation or heating and cooling centralised system in any indoor environment and works 24/7 to suppress pathogens, allowing normal life to continue without disruption.
Effectiveness, velocity of diffusion of the •OH Hydroxyl Radicals in indoor application
- Large amount of •OH hydroxyl radicals are spread in the indoor areas very quickly
- •OH hydroxyl radicals quickly sterilise air and surfaces in matter of minutes
- Very easy to install in any indoor ambient small or large
- Management costs are low
- Purifies only harmful substances present in the air
- harmless to humans
- Very effective against Covid family viruses, bacteria and super bacteria like MRSA, odours and VOC compounds.
- Applicable for any kind of industries from large to small and domestic
Infinite Indoor Applications
We see major potential for this technology in reducing the likelihood of infection and disease transmission in indoor spaces, such as hospitals, care homes, other medical and veterinary facilities, business offices, schools and universities, restaurants and bars, public transport and private homes.
As such, the technology is relevant to the current pandemic and any outbreaks we may become exposed to in the future, including the yearly influenza outbreak.
Reduce the risk of contagion and infection on indoor applications :
- Hospitals, medical & veterinary
- Care homes
- Transport & Logistics
- Warehousing and processing plants
- Business offices
- Food processing & supermarkets
- Retail and commercial centres
- Childcare, schools and universities
- Hotels, restaurants and bars
- Public transport including aviation
- Sports facilities and venues
- Places of worship
- Private homes
- Commercial spaces - naturally ventilated
- Air conditioned spaces
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.
