Indoor air quality has increasingly become a priority for everyone from homeowners to facility operators. Ionization technology represents one of the major categories for air cleaners, but concerns over its safety and efficacy have led to cautionary warnings.
However, a basic understanding of the fundamental process is often critical to understanding whether the theory behind indoor air quality improvement and ionization will lead to the desired result. Dive into this breakdown of air ionization technologies to explore the differences between theory and reality.
Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) has been used in HVAC systems in an attempt to reduce airborne microbial contamination. This white paper examines the efficacy of UVGI and the number of factors that efficacy may be dependent on.
By comparing how DHP™ may also respond to those dependencies, the results show that because DHP™ is a near ideal gas, it is not impeded by shadowing, shielding, reflectivity, or other similar parameters.
Solutions for occupied spaces are limited based on potential toxicity or harm to humans, such as UV power. Synexis and Dry Hydrogen Peroxide is the ideal solution as it continuously attacks microbes, flowing through any indoor space without anyone ever needing to leave the room.
In an independent laboratory test, Synexis DHP™ showed significant reduction of MS2 Virus (coronavirus surrogate) at various time periods, both in the air and on surfaces.
Between bacteria, viruses, mold, and other pathogens, environmental challenges run rampant in the close quarters of most schools. This spread of infectious bacteria and allergens can have a broad-reaching impact on students, teachers, and the community at large.
While Synexis combats challenges in all types of classrooms, a case study of a child care facility in New York showed that implementing DHP™ technology led to a clear reduction of pathogens. Read about the results, and the impact Synexis can have on a variety of bugs, both the ones you can see and the ones you can’t, in the classroom.
Higher education environments naturally provide unique environmental and infection-prevention challenges. In addition to students packing into lecture halls and dormitories, many campuses have older facilities equipped only with suboptimal ventilation and engineering control—making consistent cleaning practices logistically tough.
Unlike the other available “no-touch” technologies available today, Synexis offers a game-changing capability for the ongoing mitigation of microbial threats—even in occupied spaces and hard-to-reach areas throughout a campus. Read about the specific effects DHP™ technology can have on different types of pathogens commonly found at universities and colleges.
