In today’s world, business owners prioritize health and safety measures to create a conducive working environment. An integral part of this is ensuring optimal indoor air quality, a task for which many businesses turn to advanced air purification systems. The most prominent contenders in this arena are NASA air purifiers and AirROS systems. This blog will compare these two technologies, focusing on their suitability for commercial office spaces and other businesses.
NASA Air Purifiers: A Brief Overview
NASA air purifiers leverage UV-based systems that employ ultraviolet light waves. They operate using UV bulbs or UV light in combination with PCO (photocatalytic) plates, often made from Titanium Dioxide.
The method, often called NASA Technology or PCO, treats air by reacting with UV light to produce reactive oxygen species, including hydroxyl radicals and superoxide ions. Crucially, most of these technologies DO NOT generate ozone, a gas effective for surface treatment at safe, low levels.
While NASA air purifiers are lauded for their air purification capabilities, they present certain drawbacks. Their output isn’t enduring, limiting their efficacy to the air flowing directly through the purifier or within the air ducts. Claims of surface treatment are often confined to laboratory conditions and may not extend to more extensive, real-world environments. Although efficient in treating air, these purifiers have limited capacity to purify surfaces.
AirROS: An Advanced Solution for Air and Surface
On the other hand, AirROS surface and air purifier systems offer a more comprehensive solution using 7 ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species) technology. This system generates non-thermal plasma and ROS with high voltage and high frequency-controlled pulses but with very low amperage. The operation of the AirROS system encompasses two distinct phases:
Phase 1- Primary Air Cleaning:
Air-containing microorganisms enter the purifier’s internal chamber. Here, the reaction chamber generates ROS, which are short-lived but highly reactive species. They sanitize the air and destroy all bacteria, molds, viruses, and other pathogens.
Phase 2- Secondary Surface & Air Cleaning:
Purified air, now containing longer-lived Reactive Oxygen Species, is released into the environment. This further sanitizes room air and surfaces, eliminating pathogens and controlling odor for 24/7 cleanliness.
Unlike NASA’s air purifiers, AirROS’s technology can clean air and surfaces, offering a holistic solution to air and surface purification. It has emerged as a preferred choice for businesses seeking comprehensive sanitation solutions.
Why Choose AirROS?
AirROS presents multiple advantages over NASA air purifiers. It provides a more extensive solution by treating air and surfaces rather than only the air passing through the cleaner. It sanitizes all surfaces in the office environment, ensuring a cleaner, safer workspace.
Furthermore, AirROS has demonstrated effectiveness against a broad spectrum of pathogens, an essential requirement in high-traffic areas like commercial offices. It operates continually, offering round-the-clock protection against pathogens and odors, unlike NASA purifiers, whose effectiveness is relatively short-lived.
When considering an air purification system for your commercial space, evaluating its effectiveness, coverage, and longevity is crucial. While NASA air purifiers offer air purification capabilities, AirROS provides a more effective solution due to its ability to treat air and surfaces. If you’re looking for a comprehensive solution for your commercial space, AirROS’s unparalleled surface treatment and air purification capabilities could be the answer.
