FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT DISTINGUISHES PURIF’AIR FROM OTHER PRODUCTS AVAILABLE IN THE MARKET FOR DISINFECTING THE AIR?
Purif’air is much more than just an air purifier. Equipments from this range of products, besides disinfecting the air, turn it into an active agent in continuous disinfection of the environment, also disinfecting the surfaces and destroying pathogens released in people’s breathing right away.
These are certified products, widely tested by independent and renowned laboratories, having extensive documentation that proves its efficiency in its multiple fields of action.
HOW DOES PURIF’AIR DISINFECT THE AIR?
The air is disinfected by action of UV-C radiation emitted by an integrated lamp and the disinfection is kept by the oxidant molecules released by the system. The products that have REME technology, release an ionic plasm instead that both disinfects and keeps on disinfecting the environment.
TO WHICH PATHOGENS IS ITS EFFICACY PROVEN?
Among others a vast array, it has been proven to eliminate the following microorganisms and contaminants to a high extent:
chemicals from cleaning products;
WHO PROVES IT?
Purif’Air technology has been tested by the independent american laboratory BRI: Biosecurity Research Institute, a worldwide reference amongst laboratories specialized in biosecurity (Level P3). The test reports, which results are public, prove that this solution is risk free for people.
DOES IT INTERFERE WITH THE GOOD FUNCTIONING OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM?
No. The mechanism through which Purif’Air acts has no interference in the good functioning of the immune system.
DOES IT ALSO DISINFECT SURFACES?
Yes. Super-oxidants generated by Purif’Air, by being released into the air, get in contact with the surfaces and act efficiently on contaminants that may exist.
DO PURIF’AIR SPACES ALLOW THE INTERACTION WITH INFECTED PEOPLE?
Purif’Air products release super-oxidants that turn the air into an active barrier that destroys contaminants it contacts. As there is air between people, it will be disinfected and there will be a reduction of the pathogens exhaled.
DOES THE EQUIPMENT DISPOSE OF CE CERTIFICATION?
Yes. The equipment has the CE mark.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR THE PRODUCT TO BE DELIVERED?
Product delivery is often done within a week. For big purchases or projects, delivery schedules are agreed between us and the client.
IS THERE ANY CONSTRUCTION OR ARCHITECTURE WORK NEEDED?
No. Non-portable Purif’Air equipments can be coupled to any HVAC system without any change to previous existent structures.
ARE THE REPORTS FROM LABORATORY TESTS AVAILABLE?
Yes. Reports from laboratories can be made available to the client.
WHAT PROOFS ARE THERE? WHO CLAIMS IT?
Purif’Air products efficiency has been proven by several laboratorial tests made by independent laboratories such as American laboratory BRI and French laboratory EUROFINS. Efficacy has been tested and proven in eliminating a large array of microorganisms and other contaminants e pollutants of the air.
IS IT HARMFULL FOR HUMANS? IS THERE A MAXIMUM PERIOD OF EXPOSURE?
No. The levels of oxidants released by Purif’Air are below concentrations tolerated by humans by far, presenting no risk for human health even under continuous exposure by indefinite time.
HOW IS IT PROVEN?
Oxidant levels where measured after a 24h period of Purif’Air activity and the results show a very low concentration, when compared to that tolerated by humans.
ARE THERE ANY RESTRICTIONS FOR THOSE WITH A DEBILITATED IMMUNE SYSTEM?
No. Debilitated immune systems draw the most benefit from Purif’Air because it reduces the exposure to possible aggressors
HOW IS IT PROVEN?
BRI laboratory has performed tests to evaluate the efficacy of Purif’Air in surfaces disinfection and the product achieved results that confirm its efficacy.
WHAT CONDITIONS ALLOW THAT INTERACTION?
BRI laboratory performed blowing tests with resource to a sneeze simulator that measured and demonstrated that REME technology eliminates 99% of contaminants at 3 feet from the source and for PHI technology performed well, eliminating 78% of contaminants under the same circumstances.
HOW DOES IT WORK AND HOW IS IT INSTALLED?
Portable units can be fixed to the wall or just placed on a table or furniture piece and are easily installed by the final user, requiring only the connection to a 220V power plug
Units that work with HVAC systems are quickly installed by a technician without requiring any kind of structural work on the building
DO YOU AID IN EVALUATING A PROJECT OR BUDGET?
Yes. We are available to help you select the solutions that suits the client and its budged the best.
WHICH STRUCTURES OR EQUIPMENTS ARE NEEDED FOR THE INSTALATION?
Portable units require only a 220V power plug and fixed units work with any HVAC system.
WERE THE TESTS DONE BY INDEPENDENT ENTITIES?
Yes. The laboratories that performed the testing of Purif’Air products have no ties to the maker or to the distributors of the products
