OVERVIEW: To help prevent the future spread of viruses such as COVID-19 at restaurants, hospitals, schools, offices, and other commercial facilities, ultraviolet (UV) light has the proven capability to kill airborne pathogens. Purge Virus focuses on the integration of UV light into HVAC ducts to sterilize the air and create safer environments for Americans as well as people around the world. The market challenge to date has been the upfront expense of the equipment and the ongoing labor and equipment costs to maintain the systems. Ultraviolet C (UV-C) refers to ultraviolet light with wavelengths between 200 – 280 nanometers (nm). Light in the UV-C wavelength can be used for disinfecting water, sterilizing surfaces, destroying harmful micro-organisms in food products and in air. Purge Virus is developing a range of solutions that include UV-C LED Strip Kits for HVAC ducts to sanitize whole buildings continuously and concurrently with air handling systems. They also offer germicidal UV light devices that are AVAILABLE TODAY and other technologies for air disinfection that are available upon request. Purge Virus is one of the key players that is helping facilities create safe indoor air environments.
