Scavenging

Technology

How does it work?

Benefits of the Photo-Catalytic Process

Built with safety in mind

As part of the AirSafe Protocol we study and analyze many air scrubbing devices. Many of these devices employ technologies that are not very effective, or are harmful to humans and pets alike. The AirSafe Protocol is designed for continuous use in occupied spaces. To achieve this, we use state-of-the-art technologies that effectively scavenge pathogens in the air and surfaces.

The technologies used with the AirSafe Protocol are guaranteed to be safe for children, the elderly, pets, and the environment. This technology does not use ozone or harmful chemicals that are proven to cause damage to the skin, organ tissue, or eyes. In order to provide a healthy and safe environment, the AirSafe Protocol uses technologies that use photocatalytic oxidation by producing hydrogen peroxide, which is effective and safe.

 

This technology is considered an "Active Pathogen Scavenger Technology" since it works by locating the pathogen in the air and terminating it before it has the time to cause harm. A passive technology requires the pathogens to pass through a filter as a reaction to airflow. This technology, on the other hand, is considered active because it casts a protective net over the indoor space and actively tracks the threat in order to remove it from the air.

 

All devices used by the AirSafe Protocol generate up to 0.2% parts per million (PPM) of hydrogen peroxide to safely terminate harmful pathogens in the air and surfaces.

This technology uses powerful fans to take in the air inside a closed space, the air then moves through a photocatalytic component that ionizes the air to break it down into single atoms of hydrogen and oxygen, which are plentiful in the air we breathe. The hydrogen and oxygen atoms are then allowed to bond into hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), which is safe and effective when used disinfect the air and surfaces.

The peace of mind safe air can give

Regardless of the square footage of the infrastructure you wish to certify, our partners have solutions that will fit your needs and help you stay safe.

Is it safe?

Because this technology produces no more than 0.02 PPM (Parts Per Million) of hydrogen peroxide, it is safe, odorless and can be used while people are in the room or office, unlike other technologies that rely on ozone, or harmful chemicals.

The H2O2 generators produce gaseous hydrogen peroxide ensuring facilities can remain occupied, operational, and in use without disrupting everyday activities. This means your downtime is reduced to a minimum.

To further guarantee the safety of the technology, multiple studies have been conducted by independent researchers. The results speak for themselves. Continuous use of active scavenging technologies used by our partners has been shown to kill viruses in the air and surfaces while being safe for day-to-day use in occupied spaces.

Need proof?

Our partners at BonAir have made available all of the studies performed, in addition to other important information regarding the spread of airborne diseases and how to best counter them.

Disinfects air and surfaces

Generates hydrogen peroxide to disinfect the air and surfaces, even in hard to reach places.

Works on HVAC systems

Can be installed as a stand alone unit or as part of your existing HVAC system without need to replace the HVAC system.

Continuously protects you

Works around the clock to keep you, your team, your family, and your clients safe with very little downtime.

Eliminates bad smells

H2O2 is odorless and you will not notice any irregular smells. Meanwhile, it finds and eliminates bacteria that can cause bad odors.

Can be used in occupied areas

This technology is 100% safe and can be used in occupied spaces and can be installed safely on nursing homes, nurseries, offices, and more.

Works regardless of air flow

Active scavenging technology produces electromagnetically charged particles that are attracted to pathogens while requiring no additional air flow.
