In occupied areas generally we will not use ozone for safety reasons and we prefer UV and filters such as hepa type. The air from the room will be circulated through an enclosure housing the UV tubes and where airborne pathogens exposed to the UV light will be eliminated before the air is returned to the room.
In semi occupied areas such as refuse/garbage areas either controlled amounts of ozone will be introduced in to the area or UV systems will be used.
In smoking areas, ozone can be introduced to the room either through air-conditioning ducting or direct in to the room but the ozone levels need to be strictly controlled to ensure adequate safety for occupants and elimination of the smoke.
Natural organic disinfectant systems to extend shelf life of fresh produce and to reduce spoilage.
Normally used in cold rooms, predetermined ozone levels are maintained and controlled by means of ozone sensors strategically placed within the cold room.
Why do we need to treat Indoor Air?
Highly occupied areas such as Banks, Shopping centres, Offices, Hotels, Hospitals , Casinos and even Homes can become high risk working environments. Poor air quality areas influence the general performance, concentration and energy levels of employees and consumers. Good quality clean air in working environments has become more of a concern to business owners as corporate absenteeism has been on the increase for several years and is taking serious financial toll on the economy – Approximately R17 Billion per annum!
In order to create comfortable working environments, most buildings are fitted with air conditioning systems. However these systems soon find themselves becoming the next best mode for viral distribution of respiratory and infectious diseases. These micro-organisms easily pass through the filter systems into the ducting pipes and get distributed above employees and consumers, thus increasing the possibility of viral contamination. Also communicating with our fellow employees, customers, children, friends, schoolmates are another means of viral distribution that are easily transmitted during a conversation. In hospitals, clinics, surgery rooms etc viral distribution amongst patients and employees are of large concern, especially when a patient has to go under surgery. In public transportation such as buses, trains, taxis, airlines and ships commuters are also at some risk of viral contamination by other passengers.
We therefore are in desperate need to treat the air around us, especially indoor where natural sun light and fresh air are limited to poor building designs.
Air purification is used to kill bacteria, viruses, mould, fungi and other airborne pathogens that cause diseases.
Foul odours are found in many areas especially in Public toilets, Smokey pubs, Restaurant kitchens, Garbage areas, Mortuaries, Abattoirs, Hatcheries, Sewage plants, Drains, Homes etc. Many of these foul odours are formed by dead and decaying matter. During the process of decay, the organic material beaks down into other, volatile, compounds giving rise to the smell. Many consumers use perfume sprays to get rid of the smell but in actual fact the perfume only masks the bacteria for a short period of time. The use of Ozone machines will neutralises the actual micro-organisms causing the bad odours thereby creating a sanitised environment.
By incorporating Ozone and UV technology into our products we are able to manufacture and supply equipment specially adapted for each application in the combat to destroy harmful airborne pathogens and to prevent those unwanted foul odours. Being a gas Ozone reaches inaccessible areas frequently missed by other cleaning techniques and oxidises 99% of these pathogens found in the air.
