AHPCO Advanced Hydrated Photocatalytic Technology
nano-Nickel Metallic Catalyst Ultraviolet (UV) Cell PCO

 AHPCO™ is an Advanced Hydrated Photocatalytic Oxidation technology, TiO2. Basically, it is a broad spectrum high intensity UV light targeted on a patent-pending nano-Nickel HCT ™ quad metallic catalyst utilizing nano technology 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 (Volatile Organic Compounds). 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. Note: Danger / Never look directly at the illuminated AHPCO Cell.

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 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 levels as low as .02 ppm (half the Federal safety maximum) were reported as having significant results. 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 bacterial. 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 our 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 now 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 was developed. This combined with a soft start ballast 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 and super oxide ions, with ozone levels of .01-.015 ppm or less. Country or forest air usually has round .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.

How TiO2 UV Photocatalytic Oxidation Works     How the Air Oasis Air Purifier Air Cleaner Works

Why are the ions produced by Air Oasis air purifiers safer than ozone?

The answer is really quite simple.  It is all due to the oxidation defense system, within your body, which utilizes a special blend of enzymes.  Have you ever cut yourself on accident and then used hydrogen peroxide on the wound? What happened? The hydrogen peroxide started to fizz or bubble when it made contact with your wound, right? But why? It's due to the reaction of certain enzymes within our body that protect us from hydro peroxide, ozone, hydroxyls, super oxides and more. One example is Glutathione peroxidase. It is a peroxidase found in humans, which contains selenocysteine. It uses glutathione as a electron donor and is active with both hydrogen peroxide and organic hydroperoxide substrates. Another enzyme is Catalase. Present in the peroxisomes of nearly all aerobic cells, it serves to protect the cell from the toxic effects of hydrogen peroxide by catalyzing its decomposition into molecular oxygen and water without the production of free radicals. Superoxide dismutase (CuZnSOD) catalyses the dismutation reaction of the toxic superoxide radical to molecular oxygen and hydrogen peroxide and thus forms a crucial part of the cellular antioxidant defense mechanism.  Your body also contains many other antioxidants to help protect you from oxidation.  More and more of the foods we eat and the supplements we take are being loaded with antioxidants as well.

To put things in plain english; your body defends itself against these ions naturally, but mold, bacteria, viruses and other biological contaminants do not have the same defense mechanisms that we possess.  Therefore the ions we produce are deadly to simply organism, but won't harm people or their pets.

Air Oasis nano-nickel HCT PCO technology

  In March of 2006 the nano-Nickel HCT™ catalyst coating was introduced. With this new patented coating a fifth powerful catalyst metal was added. Air Oasis also reduced the metal particle size down to a nano-size 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.

Cutting-Edge Technologies: In addition to using Bi-Polar® Ionization and an AHPCO catalyst, the Air Oasis Sanitizers also includes LongLife™ technology. Because of this specialty coating on our UVC lamps, the output of our lamps is far higher than the industry standard. Many lamps maintain 65% of their output at 9,000 hours, whereas ours will maintain up to 80% of their output at 16,000 hours.

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.

How It Works: Without high-powered fans or thick filters, this non filtration system uses a lamp that destroys germs with UV light. That light is reflected with the AHPCO catalyst, which produces catalytic molecules, which then, in turn, seek out and destroy carbon-based molecules. This powerful small air purifier cleans the air quickly, efficiently, and without using too much energy. Air Oasis now has Bi-Polar® technology to further enhance the effectiveness of our countertop purifiers. How the Air Oasis Air Purifier Air Cleaner Works
