air sterilizers

The air inside your home can contain more pollutants than the air outside. Vacuuming, cleaning, and dusting just aren't enough. Just like dirty water, dirty air can bring health risks. The EPA has even listed indoor air pollution as one of the top 5 health risks. Aqua Ultraviolet plug-in air purifiers eliminate what even the best HEPA filters cannot.

AIR STERILIZER

Home series

With the Aqua UV Home Series Air Sterilizer, you can protect your home against airborne mold, viruses, bacteria, fungus, pollens, spores, and dust mites along with odors from pets, smoke, and mildew with our whole home air purifier. Plug in the air purifier and the home unit begins working for you immediately, effortlessly, and efficiently clearing the air of airborne pollutants so you and your family can breathe easy.

Information and Operation Instructions for Ozone Air Sterilizer

Our Unit is intended for use in Sterilization of air and surfaces.

Unit should be run in a room with good ventilation.

Running the Unit

We suggest to only run the unit continuously if in a well ventilated room larger than 1000 sq feet or utilize the following chart for usage:

Room Size                              Time to Run Unit                   Effective

300 sq feet                              10 minutes                             4-8 hours dependent on traffic

500 sq feet                              15 minutes                             4-8 hours dependent on traffic

1000 sq feet                            30 minutes                             4-8 hours dependent on traffic

If unit is run continuously ensure there is enough air flow to ensure ozone is emitted safely.  Running a unit overnight in an unoccupied building or room can eliminate up to 90% of all germs and bacteria in the a space of 1000 to 1500 sq feet for up to 24 hrs dependent on traffic flow.

It is still important to ensure  you are cleaning surfaces and that they are free and clear of dust even though the Air Sterilizer will eliminate contagions.

The units do not need to be run continuously, however if you wish to you can, they utilize minimal electricity but they do have ozone output and that is the smell you are experiencing.  It is good to leave them running overnight if that is more practical, as they will eliminate all germs for 12 to 24 hours depending on how high traffic flow your rooms are. 

Additionally to this with a 3500mg/hr Unit which you have, proper usage is as follows.

One unit will sanitize as follows:

300 sq feet in 10 minutes

500 sq feet in 15 minutes

1000 sq feet in 30 minutes

Eliminates Air and Surface Bacteria/Germs For a period of 4 to 8 hours depending on traffic flow in the space.

You DO NOT need to leave the unit running continuously.  It is highly effective.

It is important to ensure that you are placing the unit in an area with enough space and air flow to move the particles around.

Again the smell you are experiencing is the Ozone Sterilization killing particles in the air.

What is ozone?

Ozone is, in the most basic sense, a form of oxygen. Each molecule of ozone is made up of three oxygen atoms (O3); the oxygen we breathe, on the other hand, is made up of two atoms.

What does ozone smell like?

Have you ever heard the phrase “smells like rain?” Well, people who say they can smell a storm coming are correct. What they’re really smelling is ozone. In fact, the word ozone is derived from the Greek verb ozein, which means “smell.” This is particularly fitting given the strong aroma of this chemical compound.

Ozone has a distinctive smell that humans can detect even in small concentrations — as few as 10 parts per billion.

Here are some of the ways the smell of ozone is described:

  • Metallic
  • Like a burning wire
  • Like chlorine
  • A “clean” smell
  • Sweet and pungent
  • Like an electrical spark

Knowing what ozone smells like can help you detect whether there are high concentrations in the air.

AIR DUCT STERILIZER

HVAC series

Installed in the heating-air system a UV treats the air circulating throughout the home. UV’s purify with UV-C, germicidal rays, which penetrate an organism’s cell walls; germs and viruses cannot build up immunity to this physical attack. UV disinfection has been used in hospitals and health care facilities for decades to control the spread of diseases by both purifying the air and sanitizing medical tools. In US government buildings the use of UV is now required in all heating and cooling systems.

Ozone v’s Non-Ozone

QUESTION: WHAT IS OZONE?

ANSWER: Ozone is a molecule that consists of three oxygen atoms (O3), with a delta negative and a delta positive electric charge. The ozone molecule is very unstable and has a short half-life. Therefore, it will decay after some time into its original form: oxygen (O2, according reaction presented below).

2O3  3O2

In essence ozone is nothing more than oxygen (O2), with an extra oxygen atom, formed by an electric high charge an extra oxygen atom. In nature ozone is produced by some chemical reactions. The most familiar example is of course the ozone layer, where ozone is produced from the sun’s ultra-violet (UV) rays. But ozone is also produced at thunderstorms and waterfalls. The extreme high voltages attended with thunderstorms produce ozone from oxygen. The special “fresh, clean, spring rain” smell is a result from nature-produced ozone. Ozone derives from the Greek word ozein, which means to smell.

Ozone is only produced under extreme circumstances. This can also be created by ozone generators. Ozone generators produce ozone with extreme high voltages or with UV-light.

We do not recommend running Ozone producing lamps continuously or in Businesses that have closed spaces and patrons such as restaurants, offices and or Growhouses etc.

Non-Ozone UV Lamps

The Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UV-C) wavelength is an invaluable tool for an HVACR system. By leveraging germicidal energy to keep refrigeration coils free of microbial growth, facility managers also enjoy the benefit of reducing the spread of airborne infectious agents.

However, some facility managers may hesitate to leverage these benefits for their application due to a concern about ozone. While the Ultraviolet spectrum contains four separate wavelengths—UV-A, B, C and Vacuum UV—each operates at different energy levels and only one is capable of producing ozone (Vacuum UV).

As you’ll note in the graphic, Vacuum UV operates in the 100-200nm range, where it is capable of producing ozone. UV-C, conversely, reaches its optimal germicidal strength near 253.7nm. Because ozone may only be produced below 200nm, at 253.7nm (rounded to 254nm), the germicidal wavelength does not generate ozone.

In addition to the stronger 254nm wavelength that does not produce ozone, UV-C lamps offer another layer of ozone protection.

Most germicidal lamps, including those from UV Resources, are produced with doped quartz glass, which blocks the transmission of the 185nm ozone-producing wavelength. The doped quartz glass allows the 253.7nm radiation to pass through, but it blocks the 185nm wavelength from escaping. Therefore, germicidal lamps with doped glass CANNOT produce ozone.
