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.
In this study, DHP was incorporated into a community hospital’s 34-bed Cardiovascular/Telemetry unit’s existing HVAC system. The study was designed to answer the question: Does DHP reduce microbial contamination in the hospital unit? The results showed a significant reduction in microbes over seven days. Dig into the details below.
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 dependincies, 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 (surrogate for the SARS-CoV-2) at various time periods, both in the air and on surfaces.
