According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control), “Each day, about 55 million students and 7 million staff attend the more than 130,000 public and private schools in the United States.” Also noted in a CDC report, “School-aged children are the group with the highest rates of flu illness.” These reports are very disconcerting. The disease transmission in schools, colleges and universities, can be significantly reduced with proper hand washing, surface cleaning and sanitation, and air purification using TiO2 Photocatalytic Oxidation.TiO2 Photocatalytic Oxidation is the recognized technology that destroys malignant microbes and VOCs. Microbes (bacteria, viruses, mold, and fungi) are all present in school cafeterias, gymnasiums, classrooms and clinics. Many of these disease causing microbes settle on surfaces and yet several remain airborne and can be inhaled with the normal intake of air resulting in disease transmission.
These microbes are circulated in HVAC systems along with VOCs, (volatile organic compounds), causing respiratory allergies, disease transmission and illness. TiO2 Photocatalytic Oxidation is the technology ZANDAIR™ products use to significantly reduce airborne pathogens and VOCs in HVAC systems. TiO2 energized by 257.3 nm UVC light activates the photocatalytic oxidation action, creating free radicals that in turn destroy both molecules and cellular structure thus cleaning the air of these dangerous microbes and VOCs. As you explore our website you will find that ZANDAIR™ products with TiO2 Photocatalytic Oxidation technology provide some of the best air purification systems available on the market today.
