UV Diffusers, designed by Canadian-based EffectiV HVAC Inc., are an innovative solution to contain the spread of COVID-19 through ventilation systems using UVC light.
UVC radiation is a well-known disinfectant for air, with the radiation being used effectively for decades to reduce the spread of bacteria.
Based on this, the EffectiV HVAC engineering team behind UV Diffusers have devised a solution that purifies the air around us through combined high-efficiency filtering, sanitizing and diffusion of the air coming from the building ventilation system. When in operation, the three-in-one solution helps to contain the spread of COVID-19 and other airborne diseases in commercial and public buildings. At the heart of the operation is their unique plenum which integrates ozone-free UV lamps and its design to increase air contact with UVC light – helping to neutralize 100% of COVID-19, Tuberculosis, Legionella and other pathogens.
Frank Godbout, Spokesman, EffectiV HVAC said: “Our UV solutions ensure clean and safe air in every room of the building and can sterilize pathogens with an efficiency of up to 100% based on the amount of airflow.”
The UV Diffusers – which can be adapted with various diffuser options – are easy to install and act as a shield against contaminants – offering a short-term solution to the likes of coronavirus strains and slowing down potential outbreaks from viruses of the future.
Their MERV-9 filter also intercepts dust, pollen and other larger particles to supply pure air free of allergens and other irritants.
UV Diffusers can also replace existing diffusers in the whole of the building, or be installed in a single space.
The product has already been endorsed by industry professionals. The PLAY-UV Adjustable Diffuser system was selected by a panel of HVAC experts as one of the AHR Expo 2021 Innovation Awards finalists in the Air Quality category.
