How it works
This unit pass UV rays to a glass sleeve to trap a large amount of titanium dioxide. Electron pairs then form and react with water and oxygen. These produce free electrons and hydroxyl radicals, which in turn gets dispersed by the use of a fan. This then converts the organic/inorganic gases and air pollutants into carbon dioxide and water.
What are Hydroxyls?
Hydroxyls (HO) are naturally occurring radicals. They are created in our atmosphere when the suns ultraviolet rays react with water vapour in the air. In outside air, they are constantly replenished to a steady state of between 0.5 and 2.6 million molecules per cubic centimetre. Inside a normal room, or outdoors in a polluted city, the level of hydroxyls is zero. Hydroxyls are an important agent that scrub and cleanse our planet’s environment. OHAir Hydroxyl Generators replicate this naturally occurring process and bring it indoors.
How do Hydroxyls Clean Surfaces and Hard to Reach Places?
Once the Hydroxyls are created, they are sent to ‘Seek and Destroy” Odour Molecules, Bacteria, Viruses, Mould, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) and other chemicals.
This system is unique as it does not require all of the contaminants within a room to pass through the processing chamber. Outside the device, the Hydroxyls immediately begin a cascade reaction in the air, thus creating even more hydroxyls. The cascade of hydroxyls quickly disperse throughout the air and penetrates surfaces, objects and reach places that otherwise can’t be reached. Other technologies only clean or filter the air that passes through the device (a small percentage of the air in the room)
