Why do you need an air treatment system? Today’s construction seals our buildings so tightly in order to save on energy, that the air quality in our homes and workplace has been compromised. Our energy efficient buildings are not able to bring in enough fresh air from outside to lower the levels of biological and chemical contaminants. These airborne contaminants include bacteria, viruses, dangerous mold, chemicals, volatile organic compounds or VOCs (from many cleaning products, paint and wax), fumes and unpleasant odors.
While doing a great job in saving money, our energy efficient homes and buildings have concentrations of airborne contaminants that are continually on the rise. According to the EPA, “indoor levels of pollutants inside the home may be up to 100 times higher than outdoor levels”. These contaminants continually circulate throughout the ventilation system, spreading to every area of the home or commercial structure.
An air filter is not an air purifier!
Many of us use filters in our home’s ventilation system to eliminate particulates from the air. HOWEVER, biological and chemical contaminants like bacteria, mold, viruses, allergens, cigarette smoke, and pet and cooking odors are so small that they pass right through even the best filters – like sand through a tennis racket.
Our Air Quality Sytems have a PATENTED PROCESS that DESTROYS the CONTAMINANTS YOU INHALE.
THE SANUVOX PATENTED PROCESS
UVC & UVV Light
The UVC and UVV light created by Sanuvox UV Systems are identical to the UV wavelengths produced by the Sun. These two light wavelengths do two important jobs. The UVC wavelength attacks microorganisms on a molecular level deactivating and destroying the contaminant. The UVV wavelength oxidizes chemicals and odors into harmless by-products with no smell. Unlike many of the conventional UV “sticklights” on the market, the Sanuvox UV Air Purification Systems have a patented process that provides the maximum UV dosage to the moving air-stream.
The UV ‘J’ Lamp
With a 3 year lamp life, the one of a kind 18” high-intesity UV ‘J’ Lamp is like getting two UV Lamps with the replacement cost of only one. By combining UVC & UVV wavelengths into one lamp, Sanuvox has made biological, chemical and odor destruction possible.
Turbulator & Aluminum Reflector Chamber
In order to guarantee that air receives the maximum UV dosage possible, the Sanuvox process utilizes a Turbulator to spin the air as it flows through the Reflector Chamber. The amount of time the air is in contact with the UV light is also increased, resulting in higher destruction rates. The Aluminum Reflector Chamber contains and reflects the UV energy, magnifying the system’s efficiency.
Parallel Orientation to the Air-Stream
Because the two legs of the UV Lamp and the Reflector Chamber are installed parallel to the air-flow, the contact time between the air and the UV light is exponentially increased. The longer the air is in contact with the UV light, the more UV energy is delivered to the air-stream, resulting in a higher destruction rate of harmful contaminants.
The following Sanuvox UV air purification systems are designed to sterilize and destroy biological and chemical contaminants circulating in the home or facility.

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN UV-V AND RESIDUAL OZONE
Sanuvox Purifiers do not produce a significant amount of ozone. Only about 10% of the Lamp glass (the Dual Zone Lamp) may produce a small amount of residual ozone. The residual ozone produced is so minute, that some tests show zero amount of residual ozone in the environment. In fact, Sanuvox Residential Purifiers produce less residual ozone than a photocopier or an electronic air cleaner. Additionally, the amount of residual ozone that can be produced by a Sanuvox Residential Purifier (0.003 ppm.) is a small fraction of the ASHRAE ( 0.05 ppm.) and OSHA ( 0.10 ppm.) standards for safe levels of ozone. Sanuvox specifically designed their systems to hold the residual ozone to extremely low levels.
