LEADING THE FIGHT AGAINST THE PANDEMIC- COVID-19
YES- Pulire will take the virus out of the breathing zone.
SARS-CoV-2 is a positive-sense single-stranded RNA virus with a single linear RNA segment.
Pulire sterilises air and surfaces by a natural process called lysing, where the hydroxyls react chemically with the lipids, protein carbohydrates and other organic chemicals in the cell wall and membranes of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens and disrupt their structure. The interior contents of the cells leak and the organism is destroyed. The mechanism for killing microorganisms is not biological, so the bacteria or viruses cannot develop any form of immunity.
Some of the international companies, generating hydroxyl radicals, have tested their equipment against the MS2 virus, which is an excellent surrogate for the Coronavirus as both are positive-sense single-stranded RNA, or (+)ssRNA viruses and found the results to be highly encouraging.
Studies have proved that the kill rate of Hydroxyl Radical on respiratory viruses including corona virus is upto 99.9%
On this basis alone we can say that Hydroxyl Radical will be highly effective against coronavirus.
Undoubtedly, it is believed that COVID-19 is predominantly transmitted by droplets.
There are various sized droplets including fine droplets that can stay in the air for hours. In addition to this, it is also a proven fact that virus droplets attach to a larger particles in the air such as dust particles and thereby coronavirus becomes borne. Evidently a clear air will reduce the risk of viruses being transmitted through the air.
Secondly, the forced air from our unit will immensely reduce the surface settlement of viruses and bacteria thereby vastly reducing the viral load on the surface.
Pulire works on the most widely accepted technology of Photo Catalytic Oxidation. Photo catalytic Oxidation uses short- wave length Ultra Violet Light to energise a catalyst, which ultimately form Hydroxyl Radicals. Hydroxyl Radicals is much more stronger than other disinfectants. The Oxidation Potential (electron-volt) of Hydroxyl Radical is 2.85 while that of Hydrogen Peroxide is 1.77 and Ozone 2.07
Hydroxyl Radicals are free radicals and contain an unpaired electron which makes them unstable and so they seek out and capture electrons from other substances in order to neutralize themselves and soon a chain reaction begins and thousands of free radical reactions can occur within a few seconds on the primary reaction. They keep air safe to breathe by decomposing natural and man-made pollutants and killing microorganisms.
Pulire achieves 99.99% sterilisation of air, oxidation of toxic gases and removal of micronised dust particles.
Yes, the forced air from the unit will immensely reduce the surface settlement of viruses and bacteria thereby vastly reducing the viral load on the surface.
Also there are certain models which are equipped with UV lights of 254 nm in such a manner that the light will fall on the surface which ultimately will optimise the surface disinfection.
Pulire is equipped with a powerful fan to force the indoor air into the unit. Also we recommend the model based on the cubic mtr and usage of the room to ensure sufficient room change per hour.
For instance, the flow rate is 175 CF/min and If your room is 1750 cubic feet then 1750/175 = 10. Therefore the flow rate for a complete air exchange is 10 minutes.
Yes, undoubtedly we claim our system is much superior. Today Photo Catalytic Oxidation Technology is highly acceptable, worldwide, for the air sterilisation
CONS OF NEGATIVE ION GENERATOR -
A TEMPORARY SOLUTION- Negative Ions attach themselves to the positive ion of the air pollutants and form a heavy cluster which ultimately falls on the surface, in fact making them dusty and infectious.
While the air may seems to be clean, the room itself is not actually free from contamination as they are deposited on the room surface.
Also once the electrical charge on the particle is dissipated, the particles comes airborne again..
GENERATION OF OZONE- During the process of electrical discharge the negative ions that are produced may generate ozone, which itself is a toxic and harmful gas
LIMITED AREA COVERAGE- It is believed that negative ions generally disperse upto a distance of 3 feet providing a limited coverage area. Even if the system is equipped with a fan the dispersal is still limited to 6-7 feet.
NO FILTRATION SYSTEM - Negative Ion Generators are not equipped with any filtration system
CAN BE HARMFUL- There are certain evidence to suggest that inhaled ionised particles may stick to the walls of our respiratory system and cause lung irritation and allergies
CONS OF UV TOWERS -
HARMFUL TO HUMAN BODIES- According to WHO “UV lamps should not be used to sterilize hands or other areas of skin as UV radiation can cause skin irritation”
The are extremely harmful to human body and is carcinogenic
NO PROPER DISINFECTION IS ACHIEVED- As they are harmful to human, the system have to be switched off before a person enters the room. Even the system designed by DRDO automatically shuts off at intervention with human beings. Even if we assume that the room was earlier disinfected it again becomes contaminated due to entry of new persons carrying different bacteria and germs with them.
Also no data is available to suggest that it does destruct the RNA / DNA of SARS -Cov-2 the virus causing Covid19
CONS OF OZONATOR -
HARMFUL TO HUMAN BODIES- Ozone itself is a harmful and toxic gas which is extremely harmful for human beings. So do we need to say more.
LESS EFFECTIVE- The Oxidation Potential (electron-volt) OF Hydroxyl Radical is 2.85 while that of Hydrogen Peroxide is 1.77 and Ozone 2.07
The air purifier are nothing but mere a dust collectors, they do not remove viruses, germs and bacteria and toxic gases. Studies have showed that viruses can penetrate through the HEPA filter.
Pulire will kill all types of airborne viruses and will achieves 99.99% sterilisation of air, oxidation of toxic gases and removal of micronised dust particles.
Air flow is a prime factor. Ideally the unit should be placed closer to the entrance of the room so as to maximize air flow capturing any contamination from outside the room when the door opens. This depends on the unit and the space available, but in general the maximum available space should be left around the unit. The optimum location for a tower unit, with 4 way directional airflow, is the center of a room with clear space on all four sides.
No, the system do not generate any hazardous by products
UV lamps needs changing after 6000 hours of use. That’s approximately 3-4 years of use, 6 hours per day. The filters can be easily replaced by opening the blank panel of the unit.
You can get all the spare parts from our websites or through your local distributor.
Yes, these units are just plug and play and do not require any maintenance. Once in a while you can open the back panel and wipe the pre filter (depending upon the model) and HEPA Filter.
It depends on the model, ranging from 25 watt to 200 watt
The units are very easy to install, operate and maintain, they are plug and play.
Installation and Maintenance Manual are provided with the system
Yes, the units are light weight and can be easily moved. However to optimise the results, the unit must remain at one point so as to create efficient airflow within the space it is covering
Pulire is often used in conjunction with A/C units and the airflow from the A/C should be taken into account before best positioning of the Pulire units are decided upon. A/C airflow should aid the airflow being directed into the unit as opposed to countering it.
