Viral Kill Technology
Bluezone viral kill technology utilizes germicidal UV-C to clean the air of virus.
(4) UV-C bulbs inactivate airborne virus and disinfect the air
High Treatment Volume
High flow rate circulates the air quickly and continuously kills virus
Destroys VOCS and unpleasant odors
Bluezone Fresh Air
Purified air is returned to the space with significantly less airborne contaminants. Bluezone demonstrated a 99.9995% reduction of virus accepted as a SARS-COV-2 surrogate
Average NET % Reduction of Airborne Virus
Model 450 Sizing Recommendations
Following Bluezone’s sizing chart reduces the risk of aerosol transmission as much as wearing a fabric face mask. For Model 450 product specifications please visit our viral kill product page.
Bluezone technology outperforms ionizers, UV lamps, and particle filters.
Ionizers (Hydroxyl Radicals, Super Oxide Bipolar Ionization, Corona Discharge, Needlepoint Ionization and Other Ion Air Cleaners)
ASHRAE Statment: “Convincing scientifically-rigorous, peer-reviewed studies do not currently exist on this emerging technology; manufacturer data should be carefully considered.” https://www.ashrae.org/technical-resources/filtration-disinfection
Particle Filters (HEPA filters)
Capturing particles rather than inactivating them. High efficiency filters in HVAC system can actually decrease ventilation rates. Difficult to replace filters without reintroducing particles back into the environment. MERV 13 filters (recommended by Ashrae capture only <50% of particles 0.1 –0.5 micron
Upper Room UVGI
Eye and skin damage risk of being in direct line-of-sight. Relies on natural convection to pass air over lights; air cleaning rates are not defined
Ozone Super Oxides, Reactive Oxygen, Plasma Generators and some Ionizers
Cannot be used in occupied spaces because ozone is a health hazard
UV Lamps in HVAC ducts
Not continuously killing because HVAC is not continuously running. When HVAC is running there’s not enough residence time around the UV lights to be fully effective.
