Prevent the Spread of Infections with PCO Air Purifiers

Don't Just Capture, Destroy: HVAC filters miss smaller indoor air contaminants, such as viruses, bacteria and VOCs. The solution is Photocatalytic Oxidation (PCO) Air Purifiers, which destroy pollutants. The results are enhanced indoor air quality and improved infection control.

Fight Coronavirus and MRSA: PCO air-cleaning technology can be used to kill the coronavirus, which causes COVID-19. MRSA can also be prevented with PCO air purifiers since they specialize in airborne infection control.

Utilize PCO Air Purifiers to Combat the Coronavirus and MRSA

Destroy Coronavirus with PCO Air Purifiers

The coronavirus, which causes COVID-19, is airborne and can live up to three hours in the air. The virus particles are also small and can penetrate through HEPA filters. Therefore, utilizing PCO air purifiers to kill the virus in indoor spaces can work well.

Consider these points:

  • PCO air-purification panels destroy droplet nuclei particle <5 microns while airborne as they pass through the panel.
  • Coronavirus particles are .06 to .14 microns, small enough to penetrate 99.97 HEPA filters. The size is of major importance as the Air Force and NIH showed the ability of a living virus to penetrate even medical-grade HEPA filters.
  • Although no samples of the coronavirus are available for testing, PCO panels are highly effective in removing MS2 (common virus/influenza). This is an EPA-approved substitute for other virus testing and has shown to be particularly tough to neutralize.
  • Consequently, PCO panels can be utilized to kill the coronavirus before it enters an indoor space.
  • In addition, the removal of the coronavirus from the air will deter surface contamination.

Prevent MRSA from Spreading with PCO Air Purifiers

Hospitals are increasingly challenged by rising patient infection rates, especially from hospital-acquired infections (HAIs), such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

MRSA causes about 80,000 infections and 11,000 deaths annually in the U.S. and up to $4.2 billion in costs. It’s especially difficult to remove from indoor spaces because the bacteria travel easily through the air.

The best way to prevent MRSA from spreading is with PCO air-cleaning technology that specializes in airborne infection control. PCO systems destroy all bacteria, such as MRSA, and integrate seamlessly with existing HVAC systems.
