UVAP "In-Duct" Air Purification
On November 29 2003 the Lancet medical journal published a
ground breaking study entitled: Effect of ultraviolet germicidal
lights installed in office ventilation systems on worker's
health and wellbeing.
study concluded that the technique of using ultraviolet germicidal
lights reduced the overall worker sickness by about 20%, including
a 40% drop in breathing problems.
this technology is available for your home or business. Why
would you even consider an "in-room" air purification
unit when you can cover your whole location with the proven
"UVAP in-duct system".
the air and removes pollutants
"The vast majority of airborne pathogens are uniquely
adapted for spreading in indoor environments. The conditions
of temperature, humidity and protection from sunlight and
from oxidants ... protect pathogens during their exposed and
vulnerable period when they transmit from one person to the
next." (From Aerobiological Engineering )
In-Duct System is positioned in an area where these pathogens
can grow and multiply unchecked. This location is the cool,
dark and damp area near your air conditioner's cooling coils
and drain pans.
In-Duct System bathes this area with ultra violet germicidal
light. The light kills germs, bacteria, viruses, mildew, and
mold spores like stachybotrys and black mold.
light also creates a natural byproduct called hydroxyl. Hydroxyl
is formed when UV-C light removes hydrogen atoms from water
molecules. The result is the creation of a very short lived
hydroxyl molecule. These molecules attach to any organic particles
(dust, pollen) in the ducting and decompose them into harmless
carbon dioxide and water. Because the hydroxyl molecule can
only last for approximately a second, they never really leave
your ducting system. Since the air in your ducting cycles
approximately 250 to 400 times daily, most of your indoor
pollutants are removed as they pass through the in-duct system.
This is the same process the sun uses to scrub pollutants
from the air outside your home.
an expert says
Mr. Peter B. Cremer, CEO Laboratory Certification Services,
have found that the system provides a quick method of reducing
the organisms that invade a building after a disaster such
as a flood, major water leak or fire. Mold and mildew are
dramatically reduced, providing us with cleaner air during
the time it takes to dry out and refurbish a damaged structure."

significant water damage. Not only are we using your systems
during the remediation phase, but The hospital is having us
permanently install them to treat the entire air handling
system, for patient health reasons."
system is an inexpensive solution that is specifically designed
for use in ducts and air handling systems. Unlike the other
systems that we have used as a temporary fix for indoor air
quality problems, this system is deployed as a permanent part
of the air filtration system."
our experience in dealing with sick buildings and successfully
utilizing ultraviolet in extremely challenging situations,
it seems that the obvious solution is to deploy the system
in buildings before they have a disaster or become 'sick'
buildings. It seems ludicrous waiting until a serious problem
arises, or to suffer from the common things that trigger allergy
and asthma symptoms, when it is possible to economically prevent
ozone and all the other gimmicks that have flowed through
the market in the #past few years, here is a product that

and Air Purification
UVAP creates customized UVGI (ultraviolet germicidal irradiation)
solutions for air purification in your business or home. The
company prides itself on staying on the cutting edge of air
purification to ensure accurate and effective solutions are
applied to all indoor environments. UVAP's solutions have
been implemented in hospitals, convention centers, pharmaceutical
companies, and homes and businesses across America.
The UVGI industry is changing rapidly as lamp and filter manufacturers
create new products to address the quality and safety of our
indoor air. Application of those products requires that businesses
like UVAP stay on top of the most current research so that
proper solutions are always applied.
applications are covered by a patent on the most effective
placement of UV lighting in in-duct systems. The 1997 patent
covers all "perpendicular to airstream" applications
of UV lighting. Working with UVAP ensures that your company
or home is protected by this patented UV technology and any
litigation that may arise from its unlicensed use.
