There are many factors that can affect the efficiency of photo catalytic oxidation. Some include the quality and power of the UV lamps, the type and size of the photocatalytic surface, the technology used to coat that surface, etc.
That means not all devices using photo catalytic oxidation are created equal. Their efficiency varies greatly.
• Even though we use photo catalytic oxidation, our reactor cell is patented and unique. It achieves a 99.9999% kill rate on all respiratory viruses in a single air pass without releasing any by-products.
• We use the highest quality UV-C lamps that are certified ozone-free for their entire recommended lifespan.
• The process we use for coating the filters with TiO2 (titanium dioxide) ensures that no ultrafine particles are going to be released from the units during the photo catalytic process.
