Sanitizers or purifiers? Let's try to understand more together

Two apparently similar devices but with completely different characteristics and purposes

In this particular phase of health emergency, air ventilation, according to the indications of the World Health Organization (WHO), is the fifth ally to combat the spread of COVID-19. Sanitizers and air purifiers play a fundamental role here, but what are the differences between the two?

SanificaAria is a sanitizer designed to be used in public places, as well as in private homes, and eliminate all viruses and bacteria present in the environment, regardless of their size and type.

Air purifiers, on the other hand, are designed especially for domestic spaces and filter the air, blocking viruses and bacteria with a size equal to or greater than 0.1 micron.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus has dimensions between 0.05 and 0.14 microns, consequently it is not retained by the purifier filters, but is effectively eliminated by the SanificaAria UV-C lamp. In fact, according to the investigation carried out by the TecnoPolo "Mario Veronesi" - TPM of Mirandola, our sanitizer is able to reduce the viral load by 99.66% thanks to uvOxy technology. SanificaAria exploits the sterilizing power of UV-C rays, reproducing what happens in nature with solar radiation, in a safe, easy to handle and transportable device.

It is possible to install SanificaAria on the wall or on the floor, it has reduced noise and the continuously operating cartridge lasts 12 months.

SanificaAria's UV-C lamp is sustainable because it consumes as much as a 30 watt bulb and lasts up to 8,000 hours and, like classic home light bulbs, must be disposed of as WEEE.

On the contrary, the filter of air purifiers (HEPA134 filter + activated carbon) must be disposed of specifically because it is a special waste and there is a risk that it contains dangerous pathogens.

UV-C rays are the most effective, economical and practical solution: this is why we have chosen to design sanitizers and not air purifiers.
