Save on HVAC Maintenance, Energy & Equipment Life with Fresh Aire UV’s Commercial Series UVGI
Every building can benefit from ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI). Installing a Fresh-Aire UV UVGI system will result in significant energy and maintenance savings. These systems also improve indoor air quality for building occupants by reducing airborne biological contaminants and toxic VOCs. We offer practical solutions for all industrial, medical, retail, corporate, and hospitality applications. The main application of Fresh Aire UV includes:
Biological fouling (usually caused by mould) is a common problem in commercial air handlers. The cool, moist interior of the air system is an ideal breeding-ground for mould. A biofilm of only 0.002” can reduce efficiency by 37%! Unfortunately the conventional cleaning procedures used to kill mould are expensive, labour intensive, and use harsh chemicals which are themselves a source of environmental contamination and a health risk to maintenance workers.
The good news is that UVGI is proven to sterilise cooling coils continuously, 24/7, safely, and cost-effectively. The Fresh-Aire UV Commercial Series Standard “L” System, Tubular Rack System, and APCO Rack System are all designed to stop biological fouling on the coils and will quickly pay for themselves in energy and maintenance savings.
The Fresh-Aire UV Commercial Series Standard “L” System and Tubular Rack System are both ideal for coil disinfection. The APCO Rack System reduces odors and VOCs in addition to disinfecting coils. Smaller commercial air systems (up to 7.5 tons) can use one of our AHU Series 1 products for coil disinfection.
Standard UV System (TUVC)
The Fresh-Aire Standard Commercial UV System features high-quality water-resistant lamps with convenient “L” mounting brackets. Also included is our heavy-duty multi-voltage water-resistant power supply which comes with a lifetime warranty.
Tubular Rack System (TUVC-TRS)
This is our most popular commercial product. The Fresh-Aire UV Tubular Rack System offers easy, flexible installation and includes all the clamps and mounting hardware necessary for mounting. It’s designed for use with standard 1/2″ EMT tubing or use our optional custom steel tubing. Choose normal-output lamps for surface and air treatment or optional high-output lamps for intensive air treatment.
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are the source of nearly all odours. Unpleasant odours in a business, medical, or animal care facility can be a real problem. VOCs are not only the source of unpleasant odours, they can also be toxic. Chemicals like formaldehyde, acetone, and toluene are significant health risks and contribute to indoor air pollution.
APCO technology from Fresh-Aire UV, which was initially developed for residential whole-house duct mounted air purifiers, has been adapted for larger commercial systems with the APCO Rack System. This award-winning technology uses a unique combination of UV-C light, activated carbon, and titanium dioxide to safely adsorb and neutralize VOC molecules in the air as it passes through the HVAC system. APCO technology produces no ozone. For smaller systems consider a duct-mounted APCO system Residential APCO page.
APCO carbon cells trap and hold VOC molecules so they can be neutralized by a process called photocatalytic oxidation (PCO). The PCO reaction also keeps the cells clean so they should never need to be replaced
APCO Rack System (TUV-C-APCO)
Our most advanced commercial product adds our award-winning APCO gas-phase air purification technology to the Tubular Rack System. APCO cells contain activated carbon infused with titanium dioxide which reacts with UV-C light to capture and catalyses odour-causing and potentially toxic VOCs. Proper use of the APCO Rack System can reduce the amount of outside air needed for ventilation according to ASHRAE Standard 62.1.
Airborne infectious diseases are one of the most serious threats to health related to HVAC equipment. In settings such as hospitals, clinics, yoga studios, elder care and veterinary facilities airborne pathogens can be spread by the air system threatening the health of patrons and exposing facility owners to liability risks.
Fortunately Fresh-Aire UV has a solution. Our Airborne Disinfection System equipped with high-output UV-C lamps kills airborne pathogens 24/7.
Airborne Duct System (TUV-C-ADS)
This product is ideal for hospitals and other applications where airborne germicidal disinfection is a priority. It is installed in HVAC ducts to maximise exposure time with the air. Because exposure to surface materials is limited this system uses our high-output 32″ UV lamps for maximum airborne kill. Choose grid or radial configuration. More lamps can be added as needed depending on duct size and length.
