Our President and CEO explains why Aerapy UVGI is the BEST, scientifically proven technology for air disinfection and reducing the spread of COVID-19 and other airborne pathogens such as Viruses, Bacteria, Mold, Mites, and Allergens.
Independent laboratory testing shows Aerapy ultraviolet (UV) germicidal irradiation equipment destroyed more than 99.997% of tested virus and bacterial pathogens, including SARS-CoV-2 (the coronavirus that causes COVID-19) in the air, in one air pass. Aerapy UV also achieved a 99.98% reduction on surfaces in two seconds (99.99% in three seconds). Results were achieved with proper installation and utilizing Aerapy’s proprietary sizing method. Because the company did a live air pass test, Aerapy’s results are unique among other UV laboratory studies of SARS-CoV-2 inactivation that perform simulated passes. The independent testing against SARS-CoV-2 was conducted in a chamber constructed at the laboratory and designed to mimic an indoor environment with HVAC in place.
Because the threat of airborne and surface pathogens is relentless, so are our products. Aerapy's UV disinfection technology is made to help protect the health of your customers, employees, and your family by destroying viruses, bacteria, molds, allergens, mites, and other pollutants that can quickly contaminate your indoor environment.
Unlike plasma or ionization products, Aerapy's technology destroys pathogens WITHOUT producing any harmful byproducts such as ozone or hydroxide.
"It is being reported that the most likely cause of exposure to COVID-19 in the public sphere is when people are within 6 feet of one another for longer than 15 minutes. The important factor to remember in this finding is that our air is being sanitized multiple times within 15 minutes. Now the exposure point in our office is low enough to not necessitate any type of PPE requirement!"
Tyson Gabriel, Industrial Hygienist
“Consider using ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) as a supplement to help inactivate SARS-CoV-2... Upper-room UVGI systems can be used to provide air cleaning within occupied spaces...”
Aerapy's UVGI systems employ short-wavelength UV-C light to kill or inactivate viruses, bacteria, molds, allergens, mites and other pollutants (including Sars-CoV-2) in the air by disrupting their DNA and destroying their cellular function, causing the death of the microorganisms and/or rendering them helpless. While air naturally moves to the upper room via convection currents, these upper air products feature integrated fans to more quickly create circulation and airflow. As the air circulates through the indoor space, each round trip from the lower room to the upper room and into the unit’s disinfecting “kill zone” of UV-C light continues to reduce the number and impact of pathogens.
To ensure the correct amount of germicidal UV-C light to help achieve the highest possible pathogen kill rate for your particular space, we use our proprietary sizing method. Working with you prior to purchase, we calculate which products you need based on size of your space and additional factors such as air flow, air circulation, and type of environment.
With UVGI, disinfecting time depends on room size, airflow, circulation and pathogens targeted for elimination. With Aerapy's ground-breaking technology pathogens can be mitigated from your space within minutes because their products are the first upper-air UVGI systems to combine the power of UV-C and built-in fans to ensure the maximum number of airborne pathogens reach the "kill zone" in the shortest amount of time. With our Aerapy products, you can feel confident that airborne pathogens are being mitigated in the shortest amount of time to maximize protection for your customers and employees.
Aerapy UV Products sanitize the air with powerful UV-C so occupants are protected from pathogens.
When an infected person coughs or sneezes, they release pathogens into the air via droplets. These infected droplets evaporate into millions of tiny particles which circulate through the air. They cling to dust and can remain infectious until inhaled by another person or even pets. Once present, these (aerosolized) pathogens can circulate throughout your HVAC system and remain infectious for significant periods of time.
Aerapy's UV disinfection technology, designed for rooftop or package units, are designed to fit into new or existing HVAC systems to help stop the spread of infectious pathogens circulating through the air.
First, contaminated air is drawn by the HVAC system into the UV-C “Kill Zone” of Aerapy's in-duct UVC unit. The contaminated air is then exposed to powerful UV-C radiation which neutralizes both coil surface and airborne mold, viruses, bacteria, allergens, mites and other pollutants (including Sars-CoV-2). Aerapy's in-duct UV products have been lab tested and proven to kill over 99.9% of tested pathogens on the first air pass BEFORE they circulate back throughout your indoor environment so you can feel safe breathing clean, sanitized air.
Unlike many other in-duct disinfection systems, our Aerapy systems operate without producing any harmful chemicals or biproducts (such as ozone or hydroxide) keeping your family, employees and customers healthy and safe.
All in-duct units include an integrated viewport for safety.
All in-duct unit should operate 24/7 for optimal and continuous disinfection.
On April 30, 2021, the CDC quietly updated a page on their website titled "Coronavirus Disease (Covid-19): How Is It Transmitted?" stating, ".... aerosols remain suspended in the air or travel farther than 1 meter."
This shows sanitizing the air is a critical component in reducing the spread SARS-CoV-2 (the coronavirus that causes COVID-19). Read the CDC update here.
