CyanX is a UK distributor of air filtration technology designed to assist in the fight against COVID-19, the SteriWhite Air Q115, a chemical-free system that utilises UVC technology for the disinfection of ambient air.
The SteriWhite Air Q115 is a highly efficient disinfection system for reliably inactivating micro-organisms in ambient air. Natural air convection and powerful and very silent fans (< 39 dB; decibel scale of quiet apartment: 45 dB) inside the housing generate a continuous airflow through the disinfection system, where it is irradiated by UVC low pressure lamps. The high-energy UVC light initiates a photo-chemical reaction. The wavelength of 254 nm is absorbed by the nucleic acid of each cell which leads to an inactivation of viruses (e.g. COVID-19, influenza), bacteria and mould spores. In the laboratory, an inactivation rate of 99,99% was confirmed for SARS-CoV-2 viruses on surfaces.
With SteriWhite Air Q115 function meets form: Due to its modern design the UVC disinfection system fits in any interior. Its powder coated sheet steel housing combined with specially developed light traps prevent the leaking of UV irradiation. In addition, no ozone is generated. Thus, SteriWhite Air Q115 does not only meet the safety guidelines for UV irradiation but can also be used in all rooms with constant occupancy without any health risk. The UVC lamps have an extremely long-life service of up to 16.000 operating hours and a service-display on the housing gives an early warning for the rare lamp exchange.
A range of other units are available for use in industrial applications.
