Intensity is a key driver in the effectiveness of UVGI air purification, as pathogens and harmful bacteria may circulate back into the environment if the UVC intensity is not sufficient. Air Sniper uses several methods to combat this loss, such as increasing the number of bulbs, the wattage of each bulb, ensuring that the air is in close proximity to the UVC bulbs, and the reflective material throughout the unit.
Proximity to pathogens and contaminants is crucial for its ability to function as a germicidal solution. Therefore, in designing air purification solutions like the Air Snipers, it is essential to have multiple bulbs throughout the unit’s interior. This accomplishes the dual goal of providing proper UVC intensity and ensuring the space between bulbs is not large enough for the light to lose its required intensity.
Dwell time defines how long a contaminant spends within the equipment. For the process to be effective, all contaminants must have continuous and cyclical exposure to the UVC bulbs. Additionally, the design must ensure that the air is not circulated too quickly or too slowly, as this may disrupt the flow and allow contaminants to pass through the unit or not enter in the first place.
As a measure of airflow, cubic feet per minute (CFM) plays an important role in determining the effectiveness of air sanitization equipment. It is part of the calculations necessary to determine dwell time, and the fans must be powerful enough to circulate all the air within a space in a reasonable amount of time.
Maintain control over your Air Sniper equipment with the digital dashboard, which allows you to remotely monitor your air sanitization equipment and receive notications when maintenance or bulb replacements are needed. You can even name and add your various devices to groups!
For manual monitoring and maintenance, Air Snipers also include a multitask colour touchscreen for ease of use. This will allow you to turn your equipment on or off, adjust the fan speed, monitor the CFM for different timeframes, check the status of the bulbs and pre-lters, and more.
Both the dashboard and the touchscreen are WiFi enabled, ensuring that you remain connected to your equipment when you need it. Keep an eye on your Air Sniper equipment and watch it in action from the dashboard!
