Sanitizing the air, what does it mean and why do it?

The technologies, the effectiveness, the environments to be treated.

Scientific studies confirm that the transmission of the coronavirus occurs through tiny droplets emitted by an infected person, not only when he coughs or sneezes but also simply while breathing or speaking. Up to 37% of the particles exhaled by a COVID-positive person may in fact contain at least one virus particle. These particles spread through the air and can move several meters within an environment and remain for long periods, maintaining a charge of infectivity.
The risks increase in the winter season because more time is spent indoors and the concentration of infectious particles increases without adequate ventilation.
This is why it becomes essential to maintain good indoor air quality through air sanitization treatments.
What technologies can be used?
The technologies traditionally used for sanitization are the introduction of ozone and irradiation with ultraviolet rays (UV-C) but both require the absence of people in the environment to be treated.
How is it possible to sanitize the air even while people are present?
The technology used in our SanificaAria devices allows you to sanitize the air through a closed chamber system saturated with UV-C rays. The air, sucked in through a system of fans, is channeled into contact with ultraviolet light, which sanitizes it and puts it back into circulation. With the exclusive uvOxy® technology, ultraviolet rays always remain safely confined inside the device, without coming into direct contact with the outside. Sanitization can therefore be continuous, 24 hours a day, even while people are present in the environment.
How effective is radiation?
The antimicrobial effect of the ultraviolet source has been known for a long time, this technology is used for example for the sterilization of surgical rooms. The radiation generated by UV-C lamps is capable of damaging the structures of viruses and causing damage to their genome incompatible with their ability to replicate. The viruses are inactivated in this way and the risk of airborne infection is reduced.
In which environments is it advisable to sanitize the air?
It is of maximum use in all areas where multiple people transit and stay within a closed environment, such as offices, bars, restaurants, hotels, shops, gyms, dental practices, medical clinics, schools but also for staying peacefully in your home.

The SanificaAria devices have been tested by several accredited public and private laboratories, which have verified their germicidal effectiveness on a wide range of bacteria and Coronaviruses. The tests carried out demonstrate the ability to subject microorganisms to a guaranteed sanitizing dose capable of reducing the viral or bacterial load of the microorganisms at the entrance of the devices by up to 99.9%.
