Air Sterilisation

The Problem

A persistent bad odour in a particular area or room and no amount of cleaning, disinfecting or air fragrance is helping to eradicate the smell.

The Cause

Bad odours are caused by bacteria build up, which also poses health risks. Shared facilities, poor ventilation and people who do not wash their hands all add to the problem.

Air fragrances or disinfectant cannot control the spread of Micro-organisms. In eight hours, a single Bacteria cell can multiply to over 17 million meaning odours prevail.

The Solution

AirSteril completely eradicates the bad smell and also kills bacteria on surfaces and in the air, helping to reduce sickness in the workplace.

An AirSteril unit is labour-saving and a perfect addition to a cleaning routine as it treats the root cause of the problem and continuously works to purify the air so bad smells (and bacteria) do not return, as it works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year.

How does Airsteril purify the air?

Proven Technology

AirSterilIn September 2009 the Health Protection Agency’s laboratories at Porton Down performed efficacy testing of the Airsteril MP20 Unit’s ability to reduce air and surface microbial contamination.

The tests showed a reduction of airborne microorganisms of up to 98.11% within five minutes of exposure and a reduction of surface contamination up to 59.47% in one hour, the surface tests included MRSA.

This shows that all the bad stuff such as bacteria, fungi, mould, viruses and Volatile Organic Compounds (on surfaces and in the air) are constantly being eradicated giving them no opportunity to linger, grow and create an odour.

We have different units to suit a variety of environments such as washrooms and healthcare locations as well as multi-purpose and mobile units. Read on to find out more. 

WR Washroom Range

With every flush, toilets and urinals force faecal micro-organisms into the air, that settle on all surfaces ready for the next user.

The washroom units can be adjusted to deal with varying levels of contamination. There is an optional debris protection system for high pollution sites such as airports and train stations and a lower power washroom unit for use in smaller facilities.

AS10 Healthcare Range

Eliminating odours in healthcare environments can be very difficult. Our Healthcare unit is completely silent so even a light sleeper is not disturbed, operating by UV. The unique AirSteril thermal convection concept delivers purifying plasma to every nook and cranny in a room to control infections and odours by killing the micro-organisms both in the air and on all exposed surfaces including the curtains and carpet.

MF Range

Offices, schools and colleges experience many odour problems. Where people congregate there are risks of high cross infection; even desks and keyboards can harbour harmful levels of bacteria and viruses and areas such as changing rooms and storage areas are often prone to mould and its associated health risks.

The MF Range targets all these problems working to eliminate bacteria, mould and odours. It is fan driven and can easily be mounted on the ceiling or wall for continuous operation, via a spur. It is suitable for use in areas that are frequently occupied and it can be also be used as a portable unit.

MP Range – Mobile Decontamination

Unlike fogging, the MP unit has no damp surfaces or chemical residue and is suitable for occupation within a few minutes. It is designed for short term decontamination, in spaces up to 100m2.  As a portable unit, it lends itself to tackling occasional contamination and odour problems.

This unit could save you money in your hotel as you can place the unit into a room where someone has smoked, for example, whilst you clean the other rooms. In around twenty minutes it will help to clean and neutralise the room and eradicate the lingering cigarette smell.
