Wellisair - Advanced hydroxyl radicals technology for disinfection
Wellisair uses a new, innovative and disruptive patented technology that manages to efficiently generate and expand hydroxyl radicals (OH) that, by means of Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOP), eliminate up to 99.9% of pathogenic microorganisms (viruses and bacteria) and, at the same time, reduce volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and PM particles.
Hydroxyl radicals, in addition to being efficient for disinfecting air and surfaces, is a harmless method for humans according to a study published in the scientific journal IJERS “International Journal of Engineering Research and Science”.
Military Defense developed this technology in the 1970s for CBR (Chemical/Biological/ Radiological) warfare. It shows excellent results in the removal of harmful substances such as bacteria, germs and viruses, harmful gases, mold, and respiratory allergens that cause a contaminated environment.
The OH hydroxyl radical is often called the "detergent" of the atmosphere, since it reacts with many pollutants, initiating the process of purifying them. Likewise, it plays an important role in the elimination of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane.
The importance of Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOP) is that their application destroys the contaminant and does not concentrate it or transfer it to the environment. In this way, a total or almost total mineralization of organic pollutants is achieved, that is, they have application in the destruction of the vast majority of organic compounds, especially in non-biodegradable compounds such as organochlorines, PCBs, PAHs, etc. It is a clean and safe technology.
Hydroxyl radicals have excellent advantages over the 3 main chemical disinfectants based on chlorine, alkalis and amoni-alcohol-alkali
