Why the Active Airflow UV-C ?
Active Airflow UV-C Fixtures
The Energy Harness® Active-Airflow UV-C Fixture is designed to eliminate airborne pathogens.
The Energy Harness® Active-Airflow fixture is designed to eliminate airborne pathogens. It can be installed into standard commercial ceiling grids located in most office buildings, schools, and medical facilities.
Research indicates that most viruses and bacteria are spread by breathing airborne particles. Studies conclusively show that ultraviolet light (UV), particularly UV-C spectrum (265-280nm) is especially effective in eliminating pathogens.
The Active-Airflow fixture circulates room air many times per hour through encapsulated UV-C, light eliminating pathogens while keeping humans safe. Built with advanced solid-state LED technology, it delivers precise UV-C dosages for effective, quiet, and reliable operation.
By applying LED technology to the science of how ultraviolet light affects micro-organisms, we have developed a system to effectively protect indoor areas, and the people in them, against airborne pathogens.
The Active Airflow UVC Fixture works in tandem with the HVAC system to target and purify the air directly within classrooms, offices, etc.
Upper air remediation devices focus on the top 5-6 ft of air within a room to purify.
Anything below the 5-6 ft mark is either circulated up to the Active Airflow by the HVAC airflow or has become a surface contaminant.
What is UV-C?
Ultraviolet Light and Visible Light.
Visible Light is between 400nm and 700nm.
Ultraviolet Light is between 100nm and 400nm.
The wavelengths between 260nm and 275nm are the most effective for germicidal eradication effectiveness.
How Does UV-C Work?
UV-C is a very powerful Ultraviolet light wavelength, and it covers a region where viruses and other pathogens are most susceptible.
This is called the Germicidal Effective Range and it peaks around 268nm – 270nm.
When bacteria, germs, or viruses are exposed to a full dose of UV-C in this range, it damages the DNA, leaving it unable to function or reproduce.
How Does Energy Harness UV-C Work?
The Energy Harness UV-C technology uses precise 275nm high-powered LED chips to eradicate the pathogens while the airflow is passing through the fixture.
Designed to be effective and safe, the UV-C Active Airflow fixture circulates room air many times per hour through its encapsulated UV-C light, eliminating pathogens while keeping humans safe.
Built with the most advanced solid-state LED technology, it delivers precise UV-C dosages for effective, quiet, and reliable operation.
What is UV-C Dosage?
The combination of UV-C radiation intensity, duration, and exposure time is used to calculate the actual dosage delivered. Dosage is expressed as micro joules per centimeter squared (mJ/cm²).
The Active Airflow UV-C fixture precisely delivers the dosage by controlling high-powered UV-C LEDs (275nm wavelength) and routing airflow for a predetermined exposure period.
Each type of microorganism encountered will require different dosage amounts to sufficiently damage the pathogen.
