The Air Oasis™ air purifiers utilize state-of-the-art technology unique to any product currently on the market today:

AHPCO™ Cell (Advanced Hydrated Photocatalytic Oxidation Cell) - The next generation in catalytic oxidation. The AHPCO™ Cell technology is far superior to the older stand alone UV lamps and catalytic oxidation methods with only one catalyst used in competitor air purifiers. This is the latest advanced oxidation technology that consists of a proprietary, high-intensity broad spectrum UV lamp in a hydrated catalytic cell utilizing our patent-pending quad-nano Xtreme™ coating. Ozone is produced in the cell via the HE/UV lamp, the majority of which is converted into airborne hydro peroxides (H2O2), hydroxyl ions(OH-), super oxide ions(O2-) and ozonide ions(O3-) via the quad-nano Xtreme™ quad-metallic catalyst. These friendly cleansing ions treat your indoor air by:

• Suppressing bacteria growth (bacteriostatic)
• Suppressing mold growth (mycostatic)
• Suppressing viruses
• Suppressing VOC's
• Reducing odors
• Reducing small particles (for larger particles, such as pet hair, a filter is recommended)

The Air Oasis air purification units do not require noisy high speed fans in order to clean the air in your home or office. CADR (clean air delivery rate) is also a word of the past with our advanced technology. The fans utilized in our units simply push the five ions created into the air which then radiate through your entire home constantly destroying air borne and surface contaminants. Since the ions are present in your air 24/7 the air is constantly being cleaned without have to pass through the unit. This makes our units extremely effective yet extremely compact in size so they can fit easily into your home decor without becoming a main focal point.

Pros over competition: Low cost, no yearly maintenance, no installation, airborne hydro peroxides, super oxide ions and hydroxide ions travel through the house providing 24-hour protection against airborne mold, bacteria, viruses, odors and VOC’s. The cell also acts as a germicidal lamp and treats the air that passes by it.

*Note 1: Federal safety limits are .04 ppm. At .02 ppm or less this is not considered an ozone device.



Development of thePatent-pending
quad-nano Xtreme™ Catalyst Coating

Summary

AHPCO™, is an Advanced Hydrated Photocatalytic Oxidation technology. Basically, it is a broad spectrum high intensity UV light targeted the patent-pending quad-nano Xtreme™ quad metallic catalyst in a low-level ozone and moist atmosphere. This creates an advanced oxidation of friendly oxidizers. Unlike ozone, these oxidizers are safe, but yet aggressive at killing mold, bacteria, viruses and more.  They also effectively neutralize odors and VOCs. Once they have done their job they revert back to oxygen and hydrogen. AHPCO technology has been successfully used in water, air, food and laundry applications.

Development

The UV light and ozone are not new discoveries. Ozone was first discovered in the late 1800's and used as a water purifier in Europe. UV light was discovered in the 1930's. Actually, nature discovered it before; it was called the "sun". The disinfection qualities of UV light are also not new. Hospitals have used UV light for decades in operating rooms. Barbers were disinfecting combs in the 1950's with UV light. What is new is the enhancement of both these natural, friendly oxidizers and the validation for use on air, water, food and laundry.

History of Air Systems

In the mid-1980's air purifiers started to make their way into the residential market. Ozone air systems were widely used in the commercial restoration business for fire and flood damage to buildings. These applications utilized corona discharge systems (CD) that use a spark or electrically charged plates to simulate lightning. This converted the oxygen (O2) to ozone (O3). The CD method creates very high concentrated ozone. Plus by using air as the oxygen source, you are receiving 20% oxygen and 80% nitrogen. The problem with CD systems is with oxygen conversion you also get a nitrogen conversion, which makes nitric acid and nitric oxide.

The problem facing the residential air systems was that the cost of an oxygen generator was so high they went without one. This, of course, created a CD unit that produced high concentrated ozone plus low levels of nitric oxide and nitric acid. The maintenance was a problem due to the corrosive nature of nitric acid and the high concentration of ozone exceeding the Federal safety limits of .04 ppm. Ozone readings at the exhaust have exceeded 10 ppm, which is potentially lethal. Air Oasis decided to stay out of this dangerous market.

In the late 1980's it was discovered that the lower concentration of ozone could have an effect on odors, mold and bacteria. Testing this theory, determined that safe, low levels of ozone could have a significant result with airborne mold, odors and bacteria. The problem was to create a safe residential air purifier that could produce safe, low concentrations of ozone that would not exceed the .04 ppm Federal limits. This was accomplished in the early 1990's, about the same time as the Federal Government was going after the ozone residential units. This battle of the Feds and manufacturers gave ozone a very bad name.

With the technology to build a device that produces safe, low concentrations of ozone and the ability to ensure a room would not exceed .04 ppm, it was time to set out to validate the use of this device on mold, VOC's, odors and bacteria. Fox TV News was doing a three-part series on indoor air problems and tested one of the ozone units. The unit they had tested was producing 18 ppm ozone, a lethal amount that drove the camera crew and news reporter right out of the office. The Fox people then asked if they could independently test the AHPCO technology. They ran tests supervised by an independent air specialist and two medical doctors. The series turned out to be a fantastic infomercial for this technology. The results couldn't have been better. Fox ran this on their national news network and their national health news. Popular Science picked up the story for the magazine and ran it on the Popular Science TV Show.

In 2003 the AHPCO Cell was developed. Rhodium was added as a catalyst and improved hydration compounds were also added. Plus, a total new target concept was used. A 360 degree cell provided maximum exposure of the catalysts. The bulb was reworked and a HE/UV Broad Spectrum bulb with a heavy duty filament and long life coating was developed. This gave the new AHPCO Cell an unprecedented 3 year, 25,000 hour life. This was a major improvement over the current standard 8,000-10,000 hour UV bulb life. The most important improvement was the efficacy, the new cell design created more hydro peroxides, super oxide ions and ozone levels were .01-.015 ppm or less. Country or forest air is usually around .01-.02 ppm of ozone. Most people can smell ozone at .01 ppm, and .05 ppm is the federal safe limit for medical devices. The new cell also produces hydroxide ions and ozonide ions which broadened the scope of capabilities.

By using a AHPCO™ Cell with redundant oxidizers our scope of effectiveness is widely broadened.

In March of 2006, a new quad-nano Xtreme™ catalyst coating was introduced. With this new patent-pending coating a fifth powerful catalyst metal was added.  The manufacturer also reduced the particle size of our metals down to a nanosize particle in order to increase the surface area and therefore increase the kinetic rate of reaction. The hydrophilic gel was also improved to further hydrate the coating and react in combination with the metal catalysts (by donating hydrogen to the ozone) to decompose ozone to form hydroxide ions, and radicals, as well as hydro peroxides, such as the HO2 radical and hydrogen peroxides, which are desirable reaction products from the decomposition of ozone due to their strong oxidizing properties, which enhances the germicidal effect of UV radiation.

While competitors are using TiO2 alone with no hydrating agents or other less effective catalyst coatings, Air Oasis is setting the trend for the next generation of air purifiers.
