In air purification for quality control and food testing laboratories, safety and effectiveness go hand in hand. A sealed, sterile environment requires air purification that scrubs the air completely, without producing harmful compounds like ozone. Airocide is that air purification solution – easy to install anywhere and designed to be effective at any scale, without producing ozone or using potentially toxic chemicals like hydrogen peroxide. With a technology developed by NASA for use on the space station, Airocide was born in a sealed environment where air quality was critical. When air quality is on the line in your food testing and quality control environments, Airocide is the solution you can rely on.
Stop Airborne Contaminants in Food Testing
The human nose and tongue can detect impurities in amounts that reach the parts per billions or trillions, depending on the molecule – and when it comes to mold, bacteria, and viruses in your quality testing environments, you have equipment that’s even more sensitive than that. You don’t want a single molecule to disrupt your quality control process or compromise your products. In sealed labs for testing or research and development, sterile production lines, and in all of your equipment, the air is the key barrier between your products and contamination.
Airocide Works Differently
An Airocide unit processes the air differently than a filter alone, working independently of high efficiency filtration systems and HVAC filters to create clean air in rooms of any size. Air that enters your Airocide unit is subjected to photocatalytic oxidation, or PCO, a process that produces no emissions:
- Air that enters the unit passes over a catalyst bed, which is activated by a set of PCO lamps.
Unwanted organic molecules, including viruses, spoilage bacteria, mold, and airborne VOCs (volatile organic compounds) react with the catalyst bed and are destroyed – deactivated and reduced to trace elements of carbon dioxide and water vapor.
- Clean air exits the unit and circulates throughout your facility. No ozone or other emissions are produced.
- Some Airocide units contain convenient dust-preventing prefilters, but they all feature safe, effective, zero-emission PCO technology.
The airborne molecules that can cause contamination are gone – and your air is still safe for employees to breathe freely.
The Right Purification for Quality Control
Additionally, your Airocide system can be scaled to provide this same protection everywhere. We have a variety of units designed for handling high volumes of air on production lines and warehouses, or for back offices and areas like meeting rooms. And, with the help of one of our air purification experts, you can have a system designed to fit your facility – from testing labs and clean rooms all the way to production, storage, and shipping. Protect your food quality, reduce the risk of contamination, and even help your employees breathe easier. Airocide air purification makes it simple.
