Tandara Lodge Aged Care & Health Services Facility – Air Purification & Odour Control

Challenge

How can you protect a care home community from the threat of bacterial and viral infections?

Even the most diligent cleaning and disinfection routines cannot completely remove microorganisms from the air and surfaces – which are continually being replaced by coughs, sneezes and contaminated hands.

At the Tandara Lodge care home community, managers were keen to find ways to reduce the annual occurrence of influenza outbreaks and protect their residents from seasonal diseases.

Solution

Airius fans are typically used for destratification & circulation, but can also be factory-fitted with an Airius PureAir PHI cell. This technology charges the air with particles that neutralise bacteria, viruses and volatile organic compounds in the air and surfaces. Because Airius systems are designed to run 24/7, the benefits of the PureAir Series is profound.

With PureAir, the air is continually replenished with cleansing particles. This reduces the volume of pathogens that can exist in the air and on surfaces by up to 99%.

  • •  £8,700 saved in avoided refurbishment costs
  • •  £3,300 saved on chemical air fresheners
  • •  Reduction in staff illness
  • •  Increased waiting list

PureAir Technology Explained

How does the PureAir Series PHI Cell kill bacteria and viruses in the air and on surfaces?

The PureAir PhotoHydroIonisation (PHI) Cell is a kind of UV light that emits advanced oxidation plasma. Included as part of a fan system, the PHI cell distributes hydro-peroxides, superoxide ions and hydroxide
ions throughout the space, neutralising 99% of micro-organisms in the air and on surfaces.

PHI cells produce a group of oxidants known as hydroperoxides. Far from new to our world, hydroperoxides have been around for 3.5 billion years – and today they are commonly used in food processing environments, where they offer an anti-microbial treatment without leaving chemical residues.
