Product

What distinguishes the STERICLAIR from other air purifiers?

– History: The STERICLAIR device is the latest product in terms of time, of a range of sterilizers already established on the market. The technology that characterizes the device is supported by a solid knowledge base and more than ten years of improvements studies and evolutions. Products prior to STERICLAIR have offered over the years impeccable performance in all situations. To date, given the need to cope with the current epidemic, the company’s know-how has been transferred entirely into the design of the STERICLAIR, so as to develop a device ready and able to face even today’s challenges.
– Air flow rate: one of the most neglected aspects of air sterilisation is represented by the volumetric air handling capacity. The STERICLAIR is designed to offer a flow rate of treated air that can be sufficient for a wide range of environments such as operating theatres, operating theatres waiting rooms, offices and housing.
– Reduction of bacterial load: The STERICLAIR has a percentage of 99% reduction of the bacterial load in the air and this value in addition to be the most significant, is also discriminating in comparison with others device.
– Security: The device is among the safest on the market. All the risks associated with it has been evaluated, taken into account and has been taken into account in the relevant precautions at the time of design. The device does not have the potentially lethal ozone emissions from other devices and the risk of exposure to UV-C radiation has been eliminated by implementations of patented technologies.

Functions

How does the STERICLAIR work?

The STERICLAIR sucks in air through a dust filter that avoids soiling of the internal components. The air in transit is irradiated by six powerful UV-C radiation sources and concentrated by optical aluminum mirrors. UV-C rays altering the DNA and RNA of the microorganisms and thus rendering them harmless, they cause the air to be re-injected in the environment is sanitized.

A tutorial is required to make the unit work and, if so, how to done?

The units are very easy to install, use and maintain, you just need to connect the device to the power supply and start the process. All indications on the operation, maintenance and the correct behaviour to be followed during operation, maintenance and the operating instructions for the device are described in the user manual.

Is it also effective against viruses?

UV-C radiation denatures the DNA and RNA of both bacteria and viruses. Almost all of microorganisms is not immune to UV-C radiation, but can only vary the radiation dose necessary for its inactivation. At each step in the device each microorganism is subjected to an irradiation of more than 120 J/m2 and the effect is cumulative.

Can it work in the presence of people?

The device has been specially designed to operate in the presence of people without any risk or side effect, unlike devices currently in commerce that are not ozone-free.

Is it possible to turn it off at night?

Of course it is. The device can be turned off during the night but it is advisable to keep it switched on as there is no risk of a side effect resulting from it by prolonged use and being one of the quietest devices on the market. In absence of people, moreover, allows to reach extremely low levels of contamination that ensure a dilution of the contamination at resumption activity by helping to keep the level of activity low.

Is it effective against allergies?

No! Allergens, in many cases, are not “alive” and are not affected by germicidal radiation.

Eliminates odors?

Germicidal radiation has a mild air ionization effect that contributes to reduce bad smells, however, this is not the main function of the device.

What happens when viruses and dust particles fall on the floor instead of going through units? Do the viruses remain active?

Yes, the STERICLAIR removes viruses from the air and drastically reduces the settling on the surface if installed correctly, however, can do nothing for viruses and others contaminants that have already settled on the floor. The device mainly acts on critical areas, the respiratory area.

The windows of the intervention must be closed for maximum efficiency of the airflow?

The windows will allow fresh air to enter and this is important but it is not advisable to place the STERICLAIR in an area too close to an open window.

Technology

What technology does the STERICLAIR use?

The device uses UVGI virucidal technology, a proven control measure of infections. This technology represents a powerful system of disinfection of the air layers in closed rooms, capable of significantly improving air quality present. The technology is based on the ability of UV-C rays to deconstruct the molecular structure of pathogenic microorganisms, making them harmless to humans.

What is the difference between UVGI and Ozone technology?

The UVGI technology of the STERICLAIR, through controlled exposure of microorganisms to the UV-C beams of germicidal lamps, offers a very high percentage of reduction of the bacterial load without the need to resort to gas diffusion as potentially lethal as ozone. Some air sterilizers, on the other hand, use the method of massive emission of ozone in enclosed spaces to reduce the bacterial load. Ozone is a molecule that has an important ability to react with other molecules.

Which is the best system to use?

Undoubtedly, UVGI technology is the most recommended.
The main difference between the two technologies lies in the safety for the user. The same chemical properties that allow the high ozone concentrations of react with organic material outside the body determine the ability to react with organic material that makes up our body and can therefore cause harmful consequences to health. If inhaled, this gas can damage the lungs, cause chest pain, cough, shortness of breath and irritation to the throat and lungs. Ozone can also worsen chronic respiratory illnesses such as asthma and compromise the body’s ability to fight respiratory infections. This situation led the CIE to state in its ISBN report 978 3 907906 25 1, ULTRAVIOLET AIR DISINFECTION. 155 :2003 [All. 14], that only germicidal lamps ozone-free should be considered for air disinfection.

Features

What surface is it capable of treating?

It is not correct to refer to a surface since the device treats volumes of air. The appliance treats, depending on the setting from 290 to 700m3/h. The need to treat the air in the room several times a hour varies depending on the use to which the room is put doomed.

Where is it to be located?

The device provides both a fixed wall installation and a wheelchair-mounted support for temporary mobile installations. The wall installation is certainly the most suggested, at the in order to obtain a better air recirculation in the area affected by the airways of the users, installation at a height of about 2 meters is also suggested.

How much does it consume?

Depending on the version, it consumes 190, 380Watt or (for particularly heavy) 570 Watts.

How loud is that?

The centrifugal fans with which the unit is equipped are adjustable on three different levels speed, at minimum speed the unit is extremely quiet (approx. 32 DbA).

Security

Do you have any unwanted side effects?

No. UV-C germicidal radiation does not escape from the device due to the presence of patented optical screens that allow air to pass through while blocking completely the germicidal radiation that remains strictly confined inside of the device.

Does the STERICLAIR emit ozone?

Absolutely not! The device uses only special HNS© lamps PURITEC© 100% ozone free.

What is the difference between UVGI and Ozone technology?

The UVGI technology of the STERICLAIR, through controlled exposure of microorganisms to the UV-C beams of germicidal lamps, offers a very high percentage of reduction of the bacterial load without the need to resort to gas diffusion as potentially lethal as ozone. Some air sterilizers, on the other hand, use the method of massive ozone emission in enclosed spaces for charge abatement bacterial. Ozone is a molecule that has an important ability to react with other molecules substances and this forms the basis of its germicidal capacity.

Is there a risk of being exposed to UV-C radiation?

No. Thanks to a patented optical labyrinth technology, the risk of being exposed to UV-C has been eliminated user’s exposure, even accidental, to UV-C rays.

Covid-19

Is the STERICLAIR effective on the coronavirus?

The device uses a UVGI virucidal technology, which as demonstrated by several studies scientific is potentially able to reduce the charge to values close to zero Sars-CoV-2 bacteria, the cause of the COVID-19 infection.

If an asymptomatic patient is suffering from COVID-19, how can the STERICLAIR prevent contagion?

The STERICLAIR aims to create a controlled airflow in any indoor environment. The powerful ventilator takes contaminated air from the breathing area, sterilizes it, and so he puts her back in the breathing zone. This will greatly reduce the risk of cross-contamination through airborne particles and droplets.

Bioterrorism

What is bioterrorism?

Bioterrorism consists of the intentional use of biological agents (viruses, bacteria or toxins) in actions against the safety of others. A potential method of bioterrorism is represented by the intentional introduction of microorganisms in the heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems of the structures target in order to distribute pathogenic organisms. This potential threat has generated the need to identify and test the devices that could be used to destroy these pathogens as they move through the system of air handling in a building.

Can the STERICLAIR be an effective solution against this threat?

Yes, it can. The technology used by the STERICLAIR and its certified performance make it that the device falls within the category of those devices capable of counteracting this threat. As stated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the technology capable of dealing with the threat of bioterrorism must present a configuration of ultraviolet (UV) lights that can be installed inside the air ducts of the building.

Maintenance

What maintenance does it need?

The maintenance of the device is practical and fast. The dust filter is fixed magnetically to the device and simply grab it and replace it with the new one in his place. This operation must be performed every 15 days. UV-C lamps instead have a usage expectation of 9,000h and must be replaced according to the modes illustrated in the product’s user and safety manual.

Is it dangerous to handle the filters?

Absolutely not. Filters capture larger and relatively harmless particles. Filters are practical and handy and above all, following the guidelines given in the manual, maintenance can be carried out without any risk whatsoever.

After 9,000 hours, is the system effective?

No. Once the indicated limit of 9,000h has been reached, the system loses its effectiveness and it is necessary to disposal of worn lamps and their replacement with new ones.

Once the replacement of the lamps has been carried out the device offers the same rate of effectiveness again?

Of course it is. Once the replacement of obsolete lamps with new ones has been made new, the STERICLAIR will once again offer the same standards of performance that it has always had guaranteed.

Certifications

Has the STERICLAIR been scientifically tested?

Of course it has. The performance and operation of the device have been the subject of a specific study carried out at the University of Salerno. The study has certified the actual virucidal power and the ability to reduce the bacterial load.

Does the STERICLAIR have quality certifications?

Yes, it does. The device is certified Medical Device and for home use and the system of ECS quality is certified ISO 13485.
