Persistent Odor and VOC Reduction Capability Gets Favorable Response
CENTERVILLE, MA–(Marketwire – September 1, 2010) – UV Flu Technologies, Inc. (
The Company recently began coating the inside of its patented UV-400 cartridge with a thin layer of the photo-catalyst Titanium Dioxide (TiO2). Combined with the germicidal UV lamps contained within the cartridge, and moisture in the air, the hydroxyl radicals produced by the TiO2 accelerate the breakdown of molecular bonds present as odors or in the case of Volatile Organic Compounds (“VOC”). These compounds are converted into harmless water vapor and carbon dioxide, which results in significantly reducing the concentration and effects of odors and VOC’s.
“Volatile Organic Compounds, such as acetone, formaldehyde, benzene, as well as hundreds of other compounds, are surprisingly common in offices or households, and can be harmful in even small concentrations to people with respiratory problems, especially children and the elderly,” stated Jack Lennon, President of UV Flu Technologies. “Carpets, building materials, cleaning supplies, paints and varnishes, vinyl floors and furniture, air fresheners, copiers and printers, pesticides, secondhand smoke, wood burning stoves, nail polish remover and hair products; are all just a small sample of the products emitting VOC’s, many of which cause allergic reactions, as well as many of them containing known carcinogens. The UV-400 product has undergone laboratory tests which show the concentration of VOC’s are reduced significantly with each pass, which is repeated several times per hour in a typical room.”
“Many of our customers are very excited about this feature,” commented Bill Fegley, President of Puravair, a major distributor of UV Flu products. “The reduction of the concentration of these compounds and odors is considered very important to a wide array of our customer base, such as salons, health clubs, funeral homes, restaurants and athletic facilities. This feature, combined with the UV-400’s proven ability to kill bacteria, make it a compelling purchase for any location that commonly finds these types of airborne contaminants present in the course of their day-to-day operations.”
