UV Air Treatment

What is air treatment?

Air treatment is the process of using a UV-C LED to disinfect, reduce and even destroy harmful pathogens and bacteria in the air.

AquiSense Technologies is a leader in UV-C LED disinfection. We manufacture and develop laboratory research tools in addition to air, water, and surface treatment products.

Airborne diseases and bacteria can wreak havoc on delicate systems or sterile environments. Our UV-C LED system PearlAero Micro™ provides air disinfection through precise UV disinfection and an innovative LED reactor design.

How does air treatment work?

At AquiSense Technologies, we have developed UV-C LEDs to treat air and destroy harmful bacteria that might be present.

Essentially, air treatment works by exposing the air to UV-C LEDs that have been collaborated to a specific wavelength that is powerful enough to destroy any contaminates.

By introducing a filter, or filters, to an air treatment device, it increases the effectiveness of the system and the quality of the air passing through the device.


Array for HVAC

Instant On/Off

The PearlAero provides an instant on/off, mercury free, UV-C LED disinfection platform solution that can be engineered to suit specific application needs. The small size of the LEDs allows for a variety of new applications unseen in UV air disinfection.

HEPA filters offer 99.97% filtration with particles and organisms bigger than 0.3 microns. The UV-C LED light used in the PearlAero inactivates pathogens regardless of their size.

Wavelength selection and customized UV-C LED array structures allow for targeted inactivation of specific pathogens. Coupling HEPA filter systems with the PearlAero as an added treatment step provides true airborne infection control and peace of mind.

The PearlAero offers flow rates of 0.4 CFM and below with larger systems coming in the future.

PearlAero Applications

  • Small confined rooms

    In the case of small rooms that have very little airflow and not many windows, the PearlAero Micro™ is able to not only purify but treat the air within that space, making it cleaner and safe to be in.

  • Recirculating air-flow

    One of the biggest drawbacks of air circulation systems can be the build-up of harmful air-borne bacteria due to the lack of sufficient airflow. Simply attach the PearlAero Micro™ to the recirculating system and purify the air every time it is circulated.

  • Small research rooms

    Research labs have to meet a high standard of cleanliness in order to carry out important experiments and investigations. As a result, most labs will recirculate air as a way to control any harmful bacteria entering the lab externally.

    Using an air treatment device, like the PearlAero Micro™ that has been designed to be used in laboratory environments is a perfect way to ensure the air within the lab is disinfected and that there is zero chance of outside contamination by air.

  • Food & beverage process rooms

    Just like laboratories, food, and drink processes and preparation rooms have to meet high government-grade industry standards. Employing an air treatment system within the rooms will ensure that there is no contamination of air being drawn into the rooms.

  • Humidifiers

    While a great way to add moisture to the air and fight the risks of dry skin and sore throats, humidifiers can be equipped with an air treatment device to ensure no harmful bacteria and pathogens are being shot into a room.

  • Odor control on fume hood

    Fume hoods are used in laboratories to prevent researchers and scientists from being exposed to harmful and unpleasant gases. These hoods are normally affixed to an extraction fan to ensure these particles do not enter the lab.

    By using an air treatment system and fitting it to the fume hood, it can help remove and destroy any harmful odors that might linger on the fume hood. Reducing any unpleasant smells that might otherwise linger around.
