How It Works

ActivPure RCI Technology

ActivePure (RCI – Radiant Catalytic Ionization) Technology was developed to effectively and safely control odor causing bacteria, harmful contaminants  and molds on surfaces and in the air. The ActivePure Cell is a unique and proprietary system at the heart of our indoor air quality technology. This advanced technology sends out purifying agents to destroy these contaminants and irritants at the source of the problem. In addition to the air quality benefits. It has the added potential benefit to provide energy-sensitive solutions over other designs.

The ActivePure® Cell

ActivPure RCI Cell

ActivePure technology utilizes shortwave UV light to illuminate a “target” surface. The target is a honeycomb matrix treated with a proprietary photocatalytic coating consisting of Titanium Dioxide and a few transition metals to enhance the overall catalytic effect.

Clinically Proven to Dramatically Reduce Contaminants

  • Including MRSA, Strep & Viruses
  • Surface & Air Contamination Reduction
  • University Tested Active Technology
  • Airborne Particulate Control
  • Odor Control & Removal
  • Smoke Remediation/Elimination

Indoor Air Quality Concerns

Particles Including Sub-Microns

Pathogens (Mold, Odor Causing Bacteria)

VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds)

In order to adequately address these concerns, these contaminants must be addressed AT THE SOURCE

Active vs. Passive Technology

Active (ActivePure)

  • Aggressive Pro-active Approach
  • Destroys Bacteria Effectively
  • Technology relies on air current to take it to the source of the issue
  • Travels through fabrics to treat contaminants harboring in seat cushions and tight spots where disinfectants/wipes cannot reach
  • Takes care of particles under .003 microns with ionization

Passive (Filters, UV, Ionizers, Scrubbers)

  • Unassertive Inactive Approach
  • Simply “Deactivates” Bacteria (bacteria can reactivate in certain conditions)
  • Air is required to pass through a unit or UV bulb to be treated
  • Filters can themselves become a source of pollution – having limited effect on VOCs, odors, indoor pollutants, mold and mildew
  • Virtually impossible for all air to pass through the system

Fogging/Misting Systems

Aggressive Toxic Approach
Continuous Micro-biocidal & Sporicidal Activity Germicidal UV-C Technology Chloride-Dioxide, Hydrogen Peroxide Vapor, etc.
Surface & Equipment Decontamination Down Time Required Terminal Room Cleaning Only
Airborne Particle Decontamination (VOCs) Up to 10 – 30% Effectiveness in Reducing EIPs Down time required
Daily Continual Treatment while Occupied Use in Unoccupied Spaces Only Repeated treatments required
Up to >90% Effectiveness in Reducing EIPs Terminal Room Cleaninng Only Uses chemicals and other toxins – unhealthy to breathe
No Toxic By-Products or Residue Repeated Treatments Necessary
No Training or Dedicated Staff Needed Not Effective against Odors
No Down Time – Minutes to Install Passive Technology – relies on contaminants to be “seen” by the UV light
Degrades Toxic Chemicals (Formaldehyde, etc.) Deactivates bacteria (bacteria can reactivate)
Reduces Employee Absenteeism due to Illness UV will lose effectiveness the further away contaminants are from the light
Effective on Soft Surfaces & Fabrics Oft times manufactured overseas
