Large air handlers can be addressed in 1 or 2 areas, either at the evaporative coil or in the supply duct. When installing the lamps at the coil, it can be done with just a few lamps for coil irradiation (killing mold and bacteria on the coil) or full air stream sterilization can be achieved by using more lamps. Alternatively, coil irradiation can be done at the coil and the air stream sterilization could be done in a duct (if accessible).
UV emitted from lamps installed in an HVAC system is unfiltered and far more lethal to microbes than sunlight.
Unchecked, even a thin biofilm measuring just a few thousandths of an inch on a cooling coil can reduce HVAC efficiency by 30% to 50% — as well as cause HVAC odors. This fact alone makes UV well worth consideration for maintaining the efficiency and cleanliness of an HVAC system. Contact us for efficiency studies completed.
Puremaxx has focused on solutions for these large air handlers as we have seen a tremendous need in this area. Being as there is not an “out of the box” solution for this application, we have made the process easy for HVAC contractors and facility maintenance crews with our on-site support (actual or virtual) and our ability to tailor a system to fit the need, is helping to make a safer environment in many facilities.
