Principle of Photo-Catalytic Oxidation
Photocatalytic Oxidation (UV PCO TiO2) Studies
Chemistry scientists from the University of Colorado and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Colorado conducted an experiment testing the effectiveness of photocatalytic oxidation against harmful VOCs (volatile organic compounds such as formaldehyde and other known carcinogens). They found that destruction of these contaminates was nearly 100%.
Scientists working on behalf of the U.S. Department of Energy found that photocatalytic oxidation air purification may be beneficial for the large-scale treatment of air in occupied buildings, while conserving energy costs. This is due to the fact that this technology destroyed VOC chemicals at a significant rate, even at high air flow rates. Their study indicated that photocatalytic oxidation could provide as much VOC removal by itself as compared to the expensive process of introducing outdoor air into the indoor environment, drastically reducing the need to channel outdoor air inside.
In another study commissioned by the U.S. Department of Energy, scientists found that photocatalytic oxidation converted more than 95% of harmful VOC chemicals to harmless carbon dioxide and water molecules.

using a AHPCO Cell with catalytic molecules the scope of
effectiveness is widely broadened.
The Air Oasis uses an AHPCO Cell, (Advanced Hydrated Photocatalytic Oxidation technology). The cell consists of a special broad spectrum high intensity ultraviolet (UV) lamp. The improved UV lamp cell technology Air Oasis has achieved an astonishing 25,000 hour (3 year) life span instead of the usual 1 year. The UV light is targeted on a hydrated TiO2 metallic catalyst. With this catalyst the ozone created by the UV lamp is converted into friendly, safe and aggressive oxidizers that revert back to oxygen and hydrogen. The AHPCO Cell produces minimum ozone levels well below the amount considered safe by the EPA. AHPCO Cell technology has been successfully tested and approved to combat a variety of indoor air quality concerns. Note: Danger / Never look directly at the illuminated AHPCO Cell.
NASA Origins: Air Oasis has enhanced the original NASA PCO Technology developed for deep space missions to a superior propriety Advanced Hydrated PhotoCatalytic (AHPCO) nanotechnology. How TiO2 UV PCO Oxidation 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.
The Difference: Unlike an air purifier which circulates a portion of a room’s indoor air and pushes it through a filter, Air Oasis’s Surface and Air Sanitizers produce safe catalytic molecules that are blown throughout the room to sanitize both the air and surfaces 24/7/365. Are PCO Air Purifiers Better Than HEPA Filters?
The proprietary Air Oasis AHPCO catalyst is superior to any PCO catalyst currently on the market. The AHPCO catalyst contains six rare catalyst metals. Air Oasis' also incorporates nano size particles and special hydrating agents to increase the kinetic rate of reaction providing clean air fast! This breakthrough technology, originally developed by NASA, does not rely on filters and is virtually maintenance free. In fact, in many circumstances our AHPCO technology reduces contaminants more efficiently than a HEPA filter without the high cost of replacing filters on a regular basis.
Air Oasis developed a proprietary patent-pending five metal nano catalyst that is far superior to any cheap imitations on the market. Air Oasis UV lamps use a proprietary long life coating to more than double their life over the competition. Preliminary results from West Texas A&M University show huge reductions in formaldehyde and other VOCs. Rapid reductions in odors where also observed.
: 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.

The Air Oasis 5000PRO commercial air purifier is especially designed for open areas above 5000 square feet or smaller areas with high contamination levels. It is designed to eliminate smoke, fumes and odors and to sanitize the work area for employees. The AO 5000PRO commercial air purifier is ideal for factories, restaurants, hospitals, fire stations and hotels.
While competitors are using
TiO2 alone with no hydrating agents or other less effective
Air Oasis is setting the trend for the next generation of air purifiers.
