DON'T JUST CAPTURE, DESTroY
Traditional filter systems on HVAC equipment capture large particles very well. However, circulating throughout the building are smaller particles, such as bacteria, viruses and other VOC’s. Even the most efficient filters will miss capturing all of these small contaminates.
HIGHMARK has partnered with Genesis Air to bring to market an air cleaning solution that doesn’t rely on capturing particles. Genesis Air utilizes photocatalyic oxidation (PCO) to destroy organic compounds by turning them into CO2 and Water
SAFE FOR OCCUPANTS
The oxidation reaction takes place at the coated surfaces within the air cleaner. Unlike Bi-Polar Ionization or Ozone systems, the oxidizers created are always contained with cleaner. As a result no reactions are taking place in the occupied space where they could harm humans and animals.
HEPA and carbon filtration add significant pressure drop to an airside system increasing energy consumption. IAQ Solutions PCO technology introduces less than 0.05” of static pressure at 500 feet per minute which has no effect fan energy consumption.
HOSPITALS AND LABS
Hospital acquired infections (HAIs) cost our healthcare system billions of dollars a year. With the crackdown by insurance companies and the government for hospitals to pay for HAIs, the demand for a solution couldn’t be higher. Hospitals traditionally do a very good job of cleaning surfaces, equipment and even filtering air. However, bacteria, such as staphylococcus aureus, and viruses are recirculated through the airstream which can directly cause infections or even recharge previously clean surfaces.
AIRPORTS AND CASINOS
Organic fumes such as fuel exhaust and cigar smoke can be unpleasant and even sickening to occupants. Carbon filters can remove these contaminates from the air, but they are expensive to maintain, draw more fan horsepower, and can potentially off-gas if not regularly replaced. IAQ Solution’s PCO technology is a proven replacement for these technologies in Airports, Casinos and anywhere else that suffers from unpleasant organic fumes.
SCHOOLS AND OFFICES
Sick buildings have been proven to attribute to poor productivity. In schools, germs spread fast and can debilitate learning through missed days by teaching staff as well as students. In the office place, an ill worker is more likely to make mistakes and productivity is stifled when employees are absent. By keeping your building clean of airborne bacteria and viruses, we can ensure a more productive and pleasurable environment.
