The air is drawn into the underside of the device using a ventilator, thereby creating air circulation in the room. The ventilator circulates 50 m³ of air through the unit per hour. Depending on the size of the room, the ventilator can be set to the “low” position (25 m³) air per hour or to the “high” position (50 m³).
By setting a starting and a finishing time with the digital timer, you can set the positions and the timing as you wish. For the best results, it is recommended to keep your unit running 24 hours a day. The air that is drawn into the unit first flows through the 3M High Air Flow (HAF) Filter with Antimicrobial.
This high-quality filter is also used in hospitals, among other areas. The 3M filter removes larger particles from the air. This special filter has an antimicrobial film that prevents the development of micro-organisms on the filter. The antimicrobial film also reduces clogging of the filter and increases the filter’s service life.
After passing through the filter, the air is treated with UV-C radiation. The special Philips UV-C lamp in the unit generates an ultraviolet radiation with a wavelength of 253.7 nanometres. The UV-C light destroys viruses, bacteria, moulds and other primitive organisms. The radiation damages the DNA structure of micro-organisms and prevents their reproduction.
The special aluminium interior of the housing provides additional reflection of the UV-C radiation, thereby increasing the efficiency of the UV-C radiation up to 50%.
