OBJECT PURIFICATION There are Two Types of UV Purification: There are Two Types of UV Purification: 1. Purifying an OBJECT 2. Purifying moving AIR Purifying an OBJECT VS. Purifying The MOVING AIR

5 Purifying MOVING AIR is completely different than purifying a Stationary Object. Purifying MOVING AIR is completely different than purifying a Stationary Object. A Stick-Light Purifier is an effective Object Purifier because the object is not moving therefore the A Stick-Light Purifier is an effective Object Purifier because the object is not moving therefore the need to deliver such high amounts of UV within a fraction of a thousandths of a second is no longer need to deliver such high amounts of UV within a fraction of a thousandths of a second is no longer needed. The UV energy will shine on the object indefinitely. needed. The UV energy will shine on the object indefinitely. AIR PURIFICATION Purifying an OBJECT VS. The MOVING AIR To Purify MOVING AIR, there is only a fraction of a thousandths of a second to deliver the UV dosage needed to destroy the contaminant in the moving air-stream.

6 Some manufacturers promote that their one and two lamp Stick-Light purifiers Some manufacturers promote that their one and two lamp Stick-Light purifiers will treat the entire volume of air passing through the duct at one time. will treat the entire volume of air passing through the duct at one time. This is an example of a competitors suggested treatment area. Unfortunately, that could not be further from the truth. According Unfortunately, that could not be further from the truth. According to the Lamp Manufacturers, efficiencies DROP very quickly the to the Lamp Manufacturers, efficiencies DROP very quickly the further from the Lamp surface you move. further from the Lamp surface you move. At just 2 from the surface of the glass, the UV efficiency has At just 2 from the surface of the glass, the UV efficiency has already dropped 80% and the decline is exponential. already dropped 80% and the decline is exponential. This is true for all types of UV Lamps, from cold cathode to hot This is true for all types of UV Lamps, from cold cathode to hot cathode, soft glass to quartz glass. cathode, soft glass to quartz glass.

The purifier will maximize the UV Energy which would otherwise be lost in the duct-work. As will be discussed, even that narrow band of air is not being As will be discussed, even that narrow band of air is not being treated adequately because the air is moving much too fast in treated adequately because the air is moving much too fast in the duct to receive the proper UV dosage. the duct to receive the proper UV dosage. sanuvox technologies inc. The Two Inch Rule

7 These Stick-Lights are perpendicular in the air-stream The contaminants zip right by the Lamp The air is traveling just too quickly to be treated. The Two Inch Rule The moving air only spends a FRACTION of a thousandth of a second in contact with the Lamp! sanuvox technologies inc. The Two Inch Rule

8 There is a big difference between the UV that can be seen and effective UV. Although UV light can shine for a great distance, that light has virtually NO Germicidal effect on moving air. Only the UV within a couple of inches of the Lamp is effective in treating moving air, the rest is lost within the duct. The two inch rule only applies to air purification (treating moving air). When treating moving air, there is only a fraction of time to treat the contaminant in the air-stream. Thats why an air purifier needs an intense amount of UV energy. In contrast, the two inch rule does not apply to object purification (purifying a stationary object). The object is not moving therefore the need to deliver such high amounts of UV within a fraction of a second is no longer needed. The UV energy will shine on the object indefinitely. Light from our Sun can be seen here on Earth, but not nearly as powerful as it is in space. sanuvox technologies inc. The Two Inch Rule

18 Two Factors in achieving a high bacteria kill are : a)The INTENSITY of the UV source and The greater the INTENSITY the greater the kill. b)The length of TIME the bacteria is exposed to the UV light The more TIME the bacteria is suspended in front of the UV light, the higher the UV dosage it receives, The more TIME the bacteria is suspended in front of the UV light, the higher the UV dosage it receives, the greater the kill. sanuvox technologies inc.

22 A competitors standard 90° Installation And their 45° Angled Bracket Are they trying to make their Lamp parallel to the air stream? The following are competitors Sample Illustrations that show the units treating a large portion of the duct. In reality, the stick-lights are treating the duct not the contaminants in the moving air. The Stick-Lights, are inefficient in destroying moving contaminants in the air-stream, but will keep that portion of the duct surface clean from biological contaminants. Because the duct is stationary, UV is shining on it indefinitely. The duct does not need the same intensity to keep it clean from contaminants as moving air needs. sanuvox technologies inc.
