IONISATION TECHNOLOGY: INEFFECTIVE AND POTENTIALLY HARMFUL,
UV-C: THE SAFE ALTERNATIVE…
There are several air sterilization technologies for indoor areas now on the market, ionisation technology at the forefront.
However, the devices that utilize ionisation are subject to virtually no standardized testing, with very little peer reviewed research about this disinfection technology.
A Kaiser Health News Article ‘Government oversight of COVID air cleaners leaves gaping holes’, discusses the trials and tribulations of ionization-based air purifiers.
In the state of California, air purifiers that release more than the threshold level of ozone emissions are banned.
In September, the New York State Education Department advised against air sterilisers that produce harmful pollutants, (ionisation technology, ozone generators and ‘corona discharge technology’).
Ionisation technology can produce ozone, formaldehyde and ultrafine particles, all of which are serious respiratory hazards.
A test done in an empty classroom with an ionisation unit found that levels of dangerous ozone and ultrafine particles that can cause cardiovascular problems were increased. The report suggested that the indoor air quality was worse when the ionisation device was operating.
Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (UV-C) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions.
At AerNua, we have the solution for the Future of Clean Air.
The AerNua 100 and 500 mass air sterilisers operate safely in all indoor occupied spaces and operate without the use of plasma, ozone or ionisation technology.
By continuously filtering and sterilising the air, our technology destroys airborne SARS-CoV-2 particulates.
AerNua can help you to create a safe environment for you, your staff, customers, guests and family, allowing you to Stay Safe and Stay Open.
