The Total Spectrum® Air Purification System sets a new standard for achieving clean indoor air while significantly reducing energy consumption of air conditioning. Total Spectrum® goes beyond the traditional ventilation to solve the problems of indoor air quality. The better solution is to
purify the conditioned air inside and reuse it. Total Spectrum® is purifying the air and saving energy in commercial environments such as casinos with smoking, office buildings, airports, laboratories, and museums. Wherever there is a need to breathe fresh air and use less resources without waste byproducts, Total Spectrum® APS will deliver.
Air purifier Total Spectrum® uses a unique combination of filters, ultraviolet light (UV) with photocatalyst and Dynamic Chemistry™ to capture and destroy environmental pollutants. Conventional HVAC filters remove particulate contaminants. Prefilters of MERV 14 are used to assure all dirt is removed. Next our photocatalytic oxidation removes gaseous pollutants and destroys pathogens. This section does most of the VOC removal extending the life of the ProGuard activated carbon that follows. The carbon is regenerated constantly with Dynamic Chemistry™ generated in the UV-PCO section, extending its life up to ten years. A second gas-phase media stage is ProGuard
300 with potassium permanganate. This media assures that formaldehyde and acid gases are destroyed. Both carbon and alumina media are held in patented PMA 25 modules to assure high residence times and low resistance. The final catalytic filter ensures no Dynamic Chemistry™, such as hydroxyls, go back into the occupied space. Safeties are built into the controls for operator protection. The control box includes differential pressure gages across each filter bank providing easy visual indication when the filters need to be changed.
Total Spectrum has a patented ability to dynamically produce powerful oxidation chemistries. These chemistries react with environmental pollutants destroying them instantly. When pollution levels are low, the active oxygen is available to renew the activated carbon, preparing for the next wave of contaminants. This self-cleaning capability significantly reduces operating costs to indefinitely extend the life of the activated carbon and significantly the permanganate on alumina.
Standard 62.1 “Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality”, Section 6.3 IAQ
Procedures covers IAQ contaminants of concern and lists various concentration levels established by WHO, OSHA, NIOSH and
other authorities. A Total Spectrum removes all those contaminants to below detection on a lab Gas Chromatograph. Data from a casino installation that allows smoking validates the capabilities.
