The Complete range of our air purifying units utilizes our unique combination of 5 technologies. They eliminate unpleasant odours and control harmful bacteria and
viruses 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year.
Covid-19 (coronavirus) is not going away anytime soon, every day on the news we all hear of an increase in cases breaking out in the United Kingdom and around the world. Families and businesses need to do all that is necessary to protect themselves. As you walk down the high street, you see hairdressers, beauty salons, and other shops with their doors open to allow fresh air to circulate through the floor space. This action is fine now when it is sunny and warm, but is not a solution that can be used as the colder days on Autumn sets upon us.
have been at the forefront of air purification for many years now. Aquamaster Water Treatment Ltd is happy to be associated with their products.
A high-intensity broad-spectrum ultraviolet lamp, with UVC (254 nm) germicidal light wavelengths is the first part of photocatalytic air purification technology. A wider set of ultraviolet wavelength 185nm is employed for catalyst activation. Although UV light alone will degrade toxic organic compounds, reaction rates are much faster with photocatalytic assistance.
A catalyst is a substance that can speed up a chemical reaction without being used up itself. The catalyst material in the photocatalytic purifier is titanium dioxide, TiO2 which is applied as a thin film on aluminum or ceramic substrate.
Titanium dioxide is also a semiconductor. When a semiconductor is bombarded with the light of certain wavelengths, electrons in the material’s valence band are excited into the conduction band. This means they are free to move and their energy ends up splitting nearby water molecules into two parts, hydroxyl radicals, and super-oxide ions.
Free radicals are uncharged atoms or molecules with unpaired electrons. Unpaired electrons are highly reactive, so free radicals quickly engage in chemical reactions. Hydroxyl radicals are among the most powerful oxidizers in the world, stronger than chlorine, ozone, and peroxide, and consequently very short-lived.
Superoxide is created by the addition of one electron to oxygen. This free radical has a relatively long half-life: less than one second.
Bacteria Viruses and Volatile organic compounds are held together by carbon-carbon, carbon-oxygen, or carbon-hydrogen bonds. Oxidizers destroy these bonds and fragment the molecule into smaller compounds that are broken down until only carbon dioxide and water are left.
A photocatalytic purifier can eliminate particles down to 0.001 microns from air, including the very tiny lung penetrating particles. Remember most HEPA air filters cannot remove particles smaller than .3 microns.
Pollens, dust mite allergens, pet dander, mould, bacteria, and viruses in the air, are on the list of items removed Airsteril Photo Catalytic air purifiers can eliminate toxic gas VOC pollutants including formaldehyde, exhaust fumes, benzene, toluene, and odours like ammonia and hydrogen sulphide from our air. Even gases like carbon monoxide and nitrous oxide, untouched by every other technology are reduced or destroyed.

The MF range of units is suitable for use in areas of continuous occupation in enclosed spaces. The number of units required to treat areas will vary depending on the size of the rooms.
Here are a list of places that would benefit from Air purification systems
A combination of MF units can be used for infection control in most of the above list. Larger Air purifier systems can be taylored to suite individual requirements.
The MF range of air purification units are all fan-driven and can easily be ceiling or wall-mounted for continuous operation via a fused spur, or plugged into an electric socket.
– Reduces harmful airborne viruses, bacteria, and Circulates fresh clean air.
– Breaks down unwanted bacteria.
– Attacks odours at their source.
– Removes unhealthy microbes from the air.
– Keeps the rooms smelling freshly clean.
– Maintains those surface areas are kept sanitized and clean.
– Stops mould and fungi growth from growing on surfaces
– Clears smelly compounds in the air 24/7
In enclosed spaces it is sometimes a problem to control lingering unpleasant smells, they can be an embarrassing problem. Airborne microorganisms create offensive odours, these microorganisms can spread infections and compromise hygiene standards, bacteria breeds so quickly with the right conditions, it is not always possible to be controlled by traditional cleaning methods. When Masking odours artificially can create a more unpleasant environment for people to live in work in.
The unique development of tried and tested technology used and refined over many years has ensured the best achievable and reliable results with every unit supplied. Due to the design of the unit, the UV light rays cannot be seen by the naked eye at any angle meaning it is completely safe. All Ozone levels used are substantially below the most stringent emissions regulations worldwide. The fan is shielded behind a protective end cap to avoid potential injury. The air purifier Power supply can be via a plug and push connector which allows installation without loose cables and easy connection to existing sockets.
The MP-100 Multipurpose air purifiers are ideal for cleaning Hotel rooms. Unpleasant lingering odours can leave some rooms unusable or create a negative impression which affects your company image and customer feedback. Attempting to mask odours with fragrances can make the area even more unpleasant.
Hotels bedrooms, conference rooms Offices, meeting rooms, break room, cafeteria Healthcare, communal areas, smoking rooms Gyms, studios, changing areas, washrooms will all benefit from The MP100 unit. This mobile air purifier offers a rapid, mobile solution to odour issues, with many odours cleared in minutes.
REDUCE BACTERIA, IMPROVE FOOD SAFETY WITH THE ULTIMATE RANGE OF AIR PURIFICATION UNITS
In order to be a top-performing food supplier, it is essential to maintain low levels of bacteria both on food and throughout the working environment.
Working vehicles have to cope with a lot, the same vehicle may be used for a variety of loads creating problems with cross-contamination. Maintaining an odour free, clean, and infection-controlled environment can be a constant challenge. With busy schedules and quick turnarounds, the time allowed for vehicle cleaning is always tight with deep cleaning requiring vehicle off-road.
Available as a 12 or 24-volt model depending on requirements, the unit should be installed to run constantly with a safety cut-off connection if the vehicle is not connected to an external power source to prevent draining of the battery.
Transmitted Technology The negatively charged Superoxide Ions charge airborne contaminants causing them to cluster together and fall from the air as they become too heavy, aiding all other processes. This can remove airborne particulates down to 0.0001 microns, which’s is better than any HEPA filter. Targeted Ozone produced via the specialist lamp gets to the hardest to reach areas breaking down contamination in the air and on exposed surfaces. Ozone damages the cell wall of microorganisms stopping reproduction and destroying the cell.

Air purification units were installed at the end of September 2018, the absenteeism data month by month from the previous calendar year with any differences recorded. We have requested additional data on the type of illness, specifically respiratory conditions, and definitions of long term/short term, but as shown there is a clear drop in absenteeism with Air purifiers.
Total Sick % Oct-17 to Feb-18 has an average of 12.85% and Oct-18 to Feb-19 has an average of 5.91%, so a reduction of 54% in total sickness.
Air purification units installed in the Northern House.
There were 10 units installed around the whole of the first floor of the building.
There was a swab test carried out as an ongoing procedure to collect as much evidence of the effectiveness of the air purifiers.
All sickness absenteeism was monitored on a regular basis.
Notable areas of reduction in health issues:-
a) Asthma saw a significant reduction, further work required to validate.
b) Colds, Coughs, influenza, and S15 Chest respiratory problems showed a downward trend in the reporting period.
c)Gastroenteritis problems generally had a slightly downward trend.
d) There was an over 42% reduction in absenteeism.
