Illumipure, a leading manufacturer of innovative LED lighting and disinfection systems for commercial and institutional applications, has developed an enclosed air disinfection chamber that eliminates> 99% of airborne pathogens, including viruses, mold and bacteria. The patented Air Guardian disinfection chamber uses Violeds UV-LED technology from Seoul Viosys and Sensor Electronic Technologies, Inc. (SETI), the global leader in UV-LED technology and a subsidiary of Seoul Semiconductor.
The patented Air Guardian system was developed for placement in a return duct, plenum or ceiling and features Illumipure’s patented four-stage Immaculight ™ protection process:
• Surface-mounted fans draw indoor air through the titanium oxide (TiO2) ceramic filter inlet
• Air flows through a chamber coated with proprietary material that is excited with UV-A LED light
• Air flows through a chamber with a surface area of> 18 linear feet /> 19 square feet that is irradiated with UV-C LED light
• The exhaust air flows through a carbon filter to remove fine dust
“The Air Guardian disinfection system represents a breakthrough in the safe and effective control of airborne pathogens,” said John Higgins, President and CEO of Illumipure. “Using proven technologies that combine UV-A and UV-C light sources with advanced heterogeneous multilayer filtration, it is shown that our system continuously sterilizes more than 99% of the pathogens in the air.”
“When we developed the Air Guardian system, our research took us into Seoul Viosys / SETi Violeds’ UV LED technology, which has been shown to sterilize 99.9% of the coronavirus in just 30 seconds,” said Higgins. “The Violeds modules offer the superior performance, uncompromising quality and unparalleled reliability that we have required to make the Air Guardian system the world-class standard in UV disinfection technology.”
“As global demand for UV-C technology increases and overall lead times for electronic components increase, Future Electronics, a valuable partner of SETI, is positioning critical components ahead of demand,” said Salvatore Pepe, corporate vice president of Future Electronics. “This essential support of the supply chain enables faster delivery to our customers under all market conditions.”
Violeds is a UV LED technology jointly developed by SETi and Seoul Viosys in more than 20 years of research and development and is now recognized as an advanced optical technology for the biomedical industry. With only UV light in wavelengths from 200 nm to 400 nm for sterilization, it can be optimally designed for every application for disinfecting particles, surfaces and water in the air. Violeds technology provides an economically advanced and safer solution to replacing traditional UV lamps that contain mercury, a toxic element that does not dissolve and accumulates in the human body. The UV-LED technology offers both cost and safety advantages with significantly lower energy consumption and a longer service life than conventional mercury lamps.
Two recent studies by the Korea Testing Laboratory and biotechnology research firm KR Biotech showed that Violeds’ UV-C LED modules sterilized more than 99% of the coronavirus in seconds.
The new Air Guardian disinfection system protects human health without emitting ozone, using harmful chemicals or releasing toxic substances. It uses both UV-A and UV-C light sources and a multi-layer filter system to disinfect and remove particles, pathogens and pollutants. Air Guardian systems’ fan and disinfection chamber sterilize airborne pathogens, including SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), MRSA, Salmonella, E. Coli, mold, spores and bacteria, with an effective sterilization rate of> 99% .
The patent-pending Air Guardian system is available in 2 ‘x 2’ or 2 ‘x 4’ aluminum enclosures for ceiling or duct mounting and is ideal for use in offices, retail stores, restaurants and restaurants, as well as government and community areas . Classrooms, healthcare facilities, laboratories and clinics. The system is FDA certified for Medical Device Class 1, Listing No. D420497, EPA Facility No. 98105-TX-1, and FDA Facility No. 10077990. It is also CE, ETL, and RoHS certified.
