2 UV Air Purifiers on the Market Familiar With UV?Our Sun produces UV energy which naturally destroys biological contaminants in the atmosphere.UV-C Light attacks microorganisms on a molecular levelmutating the DNA of the cell.UV Has been used for many years in water treatment.If you are familiar with UV Water Treatment, the principles fortreating moving air are the same.Example of a UV Water PurifierUV Air Purifiers on the MarketYou may be familiar with UV Air Purifiers on the market.They appear to be very similar to the Sanuvox Saber.They may vary in number of lamps. Some have 1, 2 even 4UV Lamps.Excellent Object Purifiers but NOT very effective Air Purifiers.
3 There are Two Types of UV Purification: Purifying an OBJECT VS. Purifying The MOVING AIRThere are Two Types of UV Purification:1. Purifying an OBJECT Purifying moving AIROBJECT PURIFICATIONA Stick-Light will keep a stationary object clean from biological contaminants.A Stick-Light will make an effective OBJECT Cleaner but an inefficient Air Purifier.The Stick-Light Purifier has all the TIME to bask the OBJECTwith UV, guaranteeing nothing will grow on it.Examples of a Stick-Light Purifier Application:If installed into a duct, the Stick-Light will keep that portion of theduct extremely clean from biological contaminants, but dovery little for the air passing by the Lamp(s).If installed on the coil, the Stick-Light will keep the coilclean from biological contaminants but do very little for theair passing by the Lamp(s).NOTE: Direct UV light is destructive to plastics (drainpan, wiring, motor windings, etc.).
4 UV dosage needed to destroy the contaminant in the moving air-stream. Purifying an OBJECT VS. The MOVING AIRAIR PURIFICATIONPurifying 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 theneed to deliver such high amounts of UV within a fraction of a thousandths of a second is no longerneeded. The UV energy will shine on the object indefinitely.To Purify MOVING AIR, there is only a fraction of a thousandths of a second to deliver theUV dosage needed to destroy thecontaminant in the moving air-stream.
5 The Two Inch RuleSome manufacturers promote that their one and two lamp Stick-Light purifierswill treat the entire volume of air passing through the duct at one time.Unfortunately, that could not be further from the truth. Accordingto the Lamp Manufacturers, efficiencies DROP very quickly thefurther from the Lamp surface you move.At just 2” from the surface of the glass, the UV efficiency hasalready dropped 80% and the decline is exponential.This is true for all types of UV Lamps, from cold cathode to hotcathode, soft glass to quartz glass.This is an example of a competitorssuggested treatment area.Manufacturers who promote that their one and two Lamp Stick-Light Purifiers will purify the entireduct are in reality only TREATING A VERY NARROW BAND OF AIR that travels by the Lamp.As will be discussed, even that narrow band of air is not beingtreated adequately because the air is moving much too fast inthe duct to receive the proper UV dosage.**The 2” Rule is the reason why the “J” Lamp is mounted inside the Aluminum Reflector Tube. The purifier will maximize the UV Energy which would otherwise be lost in the duct-work.sanuvox technologies inc.
6 The Two Inch Rule The Two Inch Rule The air is traveling These Stick-Lights are perpendicularin the air-streamThe contaminants “zip” right by the LampThe air is travelingjust too quickly to be treated.The moving air only spends aFRACTION of a thousandth of a second incontact with the Lamp!sanuvox technologies inc.
7 The Two Inch Rule Light from our Sun can be seen here on Earth, 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. That’s 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.
8 Efficiencies & Testing Many manufacturers are claiming a destruction of 80% or more on their one and two LampStick-Light purifiers against their TEST BACTERIA.Many manufacturers are using Serratia marcescens as the test bacteria; Serratia marcescens isa weak bacteria to test against (3 400 MICROWATTS PER/CM² OF GERMICIDAL UV FORDESTRUCTION ).In contrast, Sanuvox tests are done in real world conditions and through clinical studies.Sanuvox results have shown mold levels dropped 100%, Mycobacterium tuberculosis( MICROWATTS PER/CM² OF GERMICIDAL UV FOR DESTRUCTION ) droppedmore than 90% and VOC's (Volatile Organic Compounds) dropped 50%.According to the information supplied by other manufacturers, the Sanuvox R3500X destroysa higher % of contaminants that require at least 300% more UV dosage than their one andtwo lamp Stick-Light units.sanuvox technologies inc.
9 Efficiencies & Testing The Sanuvox R1500X & R3500X In-Duct UV Air Purifiers will purify a portion of the airmoving within the duct at any given time.The air within our homes continually circulates through the ventilation system every minute ofevery hour of every day.Sanuvox R1500X & R3500X rely on that re-circulation to bring the overall level ofcontaminants down.After an hour or two of having the purifier installed, the home will have circulated the airthrough the purifier enough times as to bring the home’s overall contamination downdrastically.The In-Duct Purifier will destroy thecontaminants quicker than they canbe introduced into the environment.The R3500X treats the air with10,959microwatts per/cm² of UV intensityinside the Aluminum Reflector Tubeover a distance of 12”.sanuvox technologies inc.
10 Relationship between UV-V & Residual Ozone Sanuvox Purifiers do not produce ozone as their primary function. The UV-V section of theDual Zone Lamp (approx. 10% of the Lamp glass) may produce a small amount of residualozone.The Residential Purifiers that use a Dual Zone Lamp have in tests produced ppm. ofresidual ozone. So minute, that some tests show zero amount of residual ozone in theenvironment.Sanuvox Residential Purifiers produce less residual ozone than a photocopier or an electronicair cleaner. The amount of residual ozone that can be produced by a Sanuvox ResidentialPurifier (0.003 ppm.) is a fraction of the ASHRAE ( 0.05 ppm.) and OSHA ( 0.10 ppm.)standards for safe levels of ozone.Sanuvox designed the UV-V portion of the lamp to“fire” first. While contained in the Aluminum Tube,the UV-C (approx. 90% of the Lamp glass) GermicidalEnergy acts as a catalyst to speed up the process tokeep any residual ozone to extremely low levels.sanuvox technologies inc.
11 Relationship between UV-V & Residual Ozone By incorporating UV-V into Sanuvox Purifiers, studies have shown a significant decrease inVOC's while producing virtually no residual ozone in the environment.Sanuvox Purifiers not only destroy biological contaminants, but are also able to destroytoxins, chemical contaminants such as diesel fumes, cigarette smoke, formaldehyde, pet andcooking odors. It is impossible for UVC Germicidal only Stick-Lights to treat any of thesechemical contaminants or odors.UV-V does NOT mask odors orcontaminants; UV-Vmolecularly changesthe molecule(s).**Sanuvox Purifiers are available asboth UVC & UVV, or UVC only.R1500X & R3500XUVC / UVV, Germicidal / OxidationR1500G & R3500GUVC, Germicidal onlysanuvox technologies inc.
12 InstallationThe installation of an R1500X or R3500X requires no more than minutesby an HVAC contractor.The purifiers can be installed on either the return or supply side of the plenum.We recommend installing it on the return side for the added benefit of keepingthe filter and coil cleaner then if the purifier was installed on the supply side.The R1500X is hardwired to the fan relay, and the R3500X is simply pluggedin, the airflow sensor automatically turns the purifier on and off.If there is not enough room for the control box on the outside of the duct, both purifiers can be remotely installed with the optional Remote Kit. The Remote Kit allows the Reflector Tube and Lamp to be installed in the duct, and the control box remotely installed in another location.Direct UV light is destructive to plastics (drainpan, wiring, motorwindings, etc.), the Reflector Tube can easily be positioned so noUV will see any plastic. A Stick-Light purifier has no measure tocontrol what the UV sees.sanuvox technologies inc.
13 Mercury Vapor 19mm. Quartz “J” Lamp While Stick-Light purifiers use multiple lamps in order try to increase intensities. Sanuvox uses oneLamp which is bent in on itself into the shape of a “J”.This has the effect of having the two legs of the lamp treat the air, which is the equivalent ofhaving two straight lamps.Unlike most Stick-Light purifiers, Sanuvox Lamps are Quartz glass not Soft glass. Quartz glassproduces higher levels of UV Intensity and have a longer operating life than Soft Glass.Sanuvox Lamps are 19 mm in diameter, not 15 mm like other UV Lamps.The GetterThe Getter is incorporated into the Lamp.More environmentally friendly. Uses less than ½ the amount of mercury used in other Lamps.Designed to absorb pollutants inside the Lamp which are created as the Lamp burns.Better maintains UV intensity and Lamp LifeAnodeDesigned to easily ignite the mercury vapor for less strain on the filaments as the Lampstarts.sanuvox technologies inc.
14 3 Year WarrantyStick-Light purifiers (including the Sanuvox Saber) have a maximum lamp life of 8700operating hours (1 year). Stick-Light purifiers must have each Lamp wiped clean every 2-3 monthsto remove the bio-aerosols in the air-stream that adhere to the Lamp and block the UV rays.The R1500X and R3500X have a 3-year warranty, which includesthe UV “J” Lamp and all replacement Lamps.As a result of the proprietary design, the Aluminum Reflecting Tuberedirects UV to “burn off” any bio-aerosols that adhere to the UVLamp.The R1500X and R3500X are self-cleaning; the only maintenancerequired is a one Lamp change every 3 years (Sanuvox takes intoconsideration the unit will operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,365 days a year).UV Lamps age, and as they age, they lose their effectiveness.The Sanuvox Saber is the same as any other Stick-Light Purifier. We can ONLY offer a 1-year warranty on the Saber Lamp because the purifier is a) mounted perpendicular to the air-stream, b) does not use any measure to slow the air down as it passes over the lamp, and c) does not use any reflectivity to increase UV intensity.sanuvox technologies inc.
16 sanuvox – 101 A short lesson in UV Any bacteria can be destroyed with UVC light; the question is how to do it?sanuvox technologies inc.
17 Two Factors in achieving a high bacteria kill are : The INTENSITY of the UV source andThe greater the INTENSITY the greater the kill.The length of TIME the bacteria is exposed to the UV lightThe 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.
18 = Intensity How powerful would a flashlight be without a reflector? The R1500X and R3500X achieves a high intensity through the use of Reflection.The same way a flashlight or car's headlight uses a reflector to intensify and direct light. TheSanuvox UV Air purifiers use an Aluminum Reflector Tube to intensify the UV Energy.=How powerful would a flashlight be without a reflector?sanuvox technologies inc.
19 The more time in front of the UV Energy, the higher the kill. Dwell TimeHow does Sanuvox slow the bacteria down so it can receive the UV dosage needed to kill it?The Turbulator slows, twists and mixes the air around the Lamp, dramatically increasing the timethe contaminants are suspended in front of the lamp.That's what Sanuvox does. Slow down the air so the contaminant can be “burned” by the UVEnergy. The more time in front of the lamp, the higher the UV dosage the contaminant receives,and the higher the kill.Very similar to putting your hand over a candle. If you were to quickly move your hand through the flame, you would barely feel the heat. Should you move your hand slowly through the flame, you would surely be burned.The more timein front of the UVEnergy, thehigher the kill.sanuvox technologies inc.
20 Dwell TimeFinally, to increase the dwell time (the time the contaminant is in contact with the UV Energy), thepurifier is mounted parallel to the air-stream not perpendicular, maximizing the time the contaminantis in contact with the UV lamp.If properly delivered, UV Irradiation can be a very efficient method for air purification. The use of theTurbulator, Aluminum Reflector Tube,“J” Lamp and placing the unit parallel tothe air-stream are the “tools” needed tomaximize the UV Energy.The air spends 2400% MORE TIME inContact with the UV Energy than does aStick-Light Purifier.Parallel = Increased Dwell TimePerpendicular = a fractionof Dwell Timesanuvox technologies inc.
21 trying to make their Lamp parallel to the air stream? Dwell TimeThe following are competitor’s 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.A competitor’s standard 90° InstallationAre theytrying to make their Lampparallel to the air stream?And their 45° Angled Bracketsanuvox technologies inc.
