Introducing Puraclenz PCO Air Purifier Technology
- by Adorn Themes
Puraclenz uses an evolved form of photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) used by NASA to provide clean air for astronauts. PCO has been safely used to purify air and exposed surfaces for more than 40 years in many commercial applications. Our patented cell design generates an exceptionally high density of ozone free ions to proactively deactivate indoor pollutants.
Puraclenz evolved from technology to chemically-create clusters of neutral gas molecules in the air we breathe. The PCO process uses an internal UV light that reacts with a titanium dioxide coated catalyst to produce positive and negatively charged ions that deactivate pathogens.
What are ions?
An ion is an atom or molecule that has gained or lost an electron, giving it a positive or negative electrical charge. When ions disperse throughout a space, they react with single-celled organisms to break down their cellular membranes and destroy the cell. After interaction, the molecules lose their electrical charge and are released back into the air as water vapor.
