Kele supplier Fresh-Aire UV shares results
Last month, Kele introduced a new Disinfection Solutions product category featuring ultraviolet (UV) sanitation fixtures. Kele now offers solutions from leading HVAC UV disinfection suppliers Fresh-Aire UV and PURO. Their high-intensity UV fixtures are highly effective against bacteria and viruses.
Fresh-Aire UV recently shared the results from its phase-1, third-party testing of the effectiveness of its products against SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19). The test includes Fresh-Airer UV’s residential, commercial, and healthcare. In the test report titled “SARS-CoV-2 Neutralization by Germicidal UV Light System from Fresh-Aire UV,” the systems delivered greater than 4-log inactivation (>99.99%) on the SARS-CoV-2 virus within 0-2 seconds of exposure to Fresh-Aire UV UVC 254nm light systems.
Inactivates >99.99% of Sars-Cov-2 within 0-2 Seconds!
The testing was conducted by California-based Innovative Bioanalysis a CAP-, CLIA-, and AABB-certified laboratory. The test was designed to model exposure time comparative to inactivating the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the moving airstream within the HVAC or ventilation system. Products tested were the Fresh-Aire UV ADSTM (duct-mounted airborne disinfection) for commercial and healthcare applications, Blue-Tube XLTM (HVAC coil and airborne disinfection) for commercial and healthcare applications, and APCO-XTM (HVAC coil and airborne disinfection with VOC/odor reduction) for both residential and commercial applications. Phase-2 testing is currently underway.
“Fresh-Aire UV has been manufacturing proprietary germicidal UV systems for 20 years, and with everything we know about the SARS-CoV-2 virus combined with our testing experience, we were confident our systems would be very effective at inactivating the virus.” according to Aaron Engel, Vice-President of Business Development at Fresh-Aire UV. “We now have independent verification of the successful inactivation of the SARS COVID-19 virus and an even better understanding of how well our disinfection systems perform within the HVAC system, ductwork, and on surfaces.”
Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Fresh-Aire UV has been providing UV system recommendations for residential, educational, commercial, and healthcare facilities. Fresh-Aire UV systems were also used in the FDA-sponsored testing of UVC’s ability to disinfect and extend the life of N95 masks as published in the American Journal of Infection Control.
