What’s more integral to health than the air we breathe? As a healthcare provider or the manager of a healthcare facility, you know that maintaining a sanitary environment is key to preventing hospital/healthcare-acquired infections and complications in your patients and visitors. The cleanliness of the air in your medical facility is just as important as that of every surface, which is why medical-grade air purification is key. The right air purification solution is safe to use, trusted to fit your specific space and needs, and FDA-approved for use in medical contexts. The solution is Airocide medical-grade air purification.
An FDA Class II Listed Medical Device
The air purification technology inside every Airocide unit is listed with the FDA as a Class II Medical Device, approved for use in hospitals and other medical contexts. It eliminates airborne viruses and bacteria by drawing air across a contained catalyst bed, which is activated by proprietary lamps. The process that kills viruses, bacteria, fungal spores, and any other unwanted organic molecules is called photocatalytic oxidation, or PCO. Unlike a variety of other air purifiers, Airocide does not produce ozone or rely on harmful chemicals like hydrogen peroxide. The reaction is completely contained and no harmful emissions are produced. In addition, an Airocide system can be adapted to your unique space and use case – meaning you can get coverage and protection for your staff and patients no matter the size of your facility.
A Medical Air Purification System for Your Unique Facility
The PCO technology in Airocide was originally developed for NASA, for use on the small, enclosed spaces of the space station. The catalyst that PCO purification uses, though, can be expanded for a variety of applications. We have a broad array of Airocide units with different properties for different use cases. Differences can include particulate filters for catching dust before it enters the chamber, or a larger catalyst surface for more air processed per pass. Air dwell time, too, is a factor, and the longer air idles inside the chamber the more thoroughly it’s purified. The different units provide the unique protection your space needs, but we can help determine just the right system for your facility.
Simple to Use, Powerful Results
Regardless of the unit type, using your Airocide purifier is as simple as mounting it, turning it on, and letting it run continually, with simple and infrequent maintenance routines per unit. Determining the right unit for your space, and the right system to cover your facility, is also simple – just reach out to one of our medical air purification experts and we can help create a custom system just for your space. Whether you’re managing the air quality in a hospital, doctor’s office, or care facility, you can breathe easier knowing your unique Airocide system is providing 24/7 medical-grade protection to staff, patients, and visitors.
