Introducing Puraclenz Patented PCO Air Purifier Technology

At Colorado Tri-Flo Systems, we offer a technology that provides continuous air purification that’s backed by science.

Puraclenz uses an evolved form of photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) air purification used for more than 40 years aboard the International Space Station. Its patented cell design generates unprecedented ion density using only safe, non-ozone UV lamps to proactively deactivate viruses and indoor pollutants.

The Puraclenz air purification systems use photocatalytic technology to disinfect and remove bacteria and viruses from the air. This technology has been shown effective at reducing viruses, including SARS-CoV-2 that live in the air or on surrounding exposed surfaces. But how does that technology work?

The photocatalytic technology used in our Puraclenz products is a form of photocatalytic oxidation that has evolved to effectively purify your space. The technology uses a multi-blade design that reflects UV light to generate a high density of positive and negative ions. As these ions fill the space, they work to kill the pathogens in the air and on exposed surfaces by breaking down those pollutants on a molecular level.

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.

Puraclenz’ ultra-efficient catalyst design allows our products to use UV lamps that produce no ozone by-products. PCO has over 40 years of peer review and studies performed by third party independent labs and universities to kill pathogens.

This revolutionary design provides the largest area of protective coverage against pathogens with the smallest footprint and lowest energy consumption of any comparable product on the market.

Actively Cleans Air and Exposed Surfaces.

Using air as a medium to deliver ions allows Puraclenz to clean pollutants exposed to the air, including respiratory droplets and hard-to-reach exposed surfaces missed by hand-cleaning or HEPA filters.

Example:

When someone coughs or sneezes in a room being treated with passive air purifiers, such as HEPA filters, pathogens (such as coronavirus) must move through the space back to the fan unit where it is collected by a filter.

With Puraclenz, ions deactivate pathogens in the air, before reaching other people in the room, without requiring circulation through a filter.

Is Puraclenz Effective Against
the Coronavirus?

Is Puraclenz Effective Against Coronavirus?

Aerosol Research and Engineering Laboratories have confirmed that Puraclenz’s ozone-free technology is over 99% effective at reducing the MS2 virus in the air. MS2 bacteriophage is an FDA-recognized proxy virus of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

The efficacy tests were performed by Aerosol Research and Engineering Laboratories in Olathe, Kansas, an FDA compliant laboratory. Detailed lab report to be provided upon request. 

Proven Effective Against
Dangerous Bacteria

Proven Effective Against Dangerous Bacteria

Dangerous bacteria MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) causes one of the deadliest hospital acquired infections. A Puraclenz P3000 product is proven to be 95.4% effective at reducing MRSA bacteria in an independent aerosol lab test. Killing bacteria is far more difficult than deactivating a virus.

Puraclenz works differently by dynamically destroying bacteria mid-air and on exposed surfaces, continuously cleaning throughout an indoor space 24/7. Efficacy tests confirm that a Puraclenz P3000 unit is proven to be over 99.7% effective at reducing dangerous bacteria Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus epidermis in the air. MSRE is an FDA recognized surrogate for MRSA, Strep Pnuemoniae and Strep Pyogenes that cause deadly infections.

How Puraclenz Destroys Mold
in Your Workplace?

How Puraclenz
Destroys Mold in Your Workplace?

1. Proven to stop mold growth by killing mold spores.
Independently conducted efficacy tests confirm that a Puraclenz P3000 unit is proven over 95% effective in reducing Aspergillus brasiliensis in the air. Aspergillus brasiliensis is a black mold endospore that causes allergic reactions and is surrogate for Toxic Black Mold, Dark Grey Mold and other species of allergy causing molds.

2. Automatically destroys mold in the air and on exposed surfaces.
Puraclenz ions proactively deactivate mold mid-air and on exposed surfaces, cleaning throughout an indoor space, thereby reducing the chance mold spores are inhaled or settle on surfaces, where they can grow into established mold colonies.

3. Even stops mold growth in dark nooks and crannies where it likes to grow.
Save time and money by reducing your dependence on spray disinfectants. Puraclenz ions proactively clean difficult-to-reach surfaces, reduce the risk of human error and enable continuous coverage in the most challenging environment.

4. Continuous, 24/7 air ionization coverage for virtually any size commercial space.
A single P3000 is designed to purify spaces up to 3,000 sq ft. With multiple units, the coverage area is virtually limitless.

5. Safe for your workplace.
Puraclenz is safe to use while employees, clients and customers are in the building. Unlike earlier ionic purifiers, Puraclenz generates no fumes and is certified ozone-free. Most other mold remediation products require people to leave the space during treatment.

For best results with mold on surfaces in your space, first apply bleach mixed with water to clean these affected areas. Then continuously run your Puraclenz unit for at least 7 days to prevent the return of mold growth.

Is it Safe?

Puraclenz is different than your average ionic purifier. It’s zero ozone certified, and proven by independent tests to not create VOC byproducts and ultrafine particles. That means you can use it safely around people and animals in businesses, homes, schools, nursing centers, and places of worship.
