Clean Air Solution

Pentacomp’s clean air solution aims to improve indoor air quality with the use of air purification and decontamination technology to eradicate mould, bacteria, viruses and harmful mineral particles.

Indoor air quality

Taking shelter, running for cover, safe as houses – all these phrases serve to imply that being indoors means being protected. This long-standing truth falters, however, in the face of recent reports showing that indoor air is, on average, five times more contaminated and ten times more toxic than outdoor air. Indoor air potentially contains mould, bacteria, viruses such as coronaviruses, and harmful mineral particles such as lead. Contaminated air contributes to various illnesses, the most common among them being respiratory diseases such as asthma; it has also been shown to lead to higher rates of cancer, heart disease and strokes.

These conditions are potentially fatal; however, considering modern technology’s potential to improve our lives, the risks posed by contaminated air can be reduced. Currently, many air purifying technologies are in use which can significantly mitigate the threat posed by contaminated air.

Types of air decontamination technology

There are many viable methods to accomplish air decontamination (eliminating harmful substances from the air), including mechanical filtering, ionization, and chemical methods.

Typical methods used to eliminate air-borne microorganisms include; Ozone, UV- Light, Hepa-Filters. To effectively use these methods they need to be activated in an unmanned environment and require servicing on a regular basis to prevent the release of trapped microorganisms.

The technology behind Pentacomp’s Clean Air Solution

Pentacomp’s Clean Air Solution employs a mechanical method of eradicating– not simply trapping or filtering – airborne microorganisms. This is achieved by exposing the microbial or viral cell receptors and membranes to constant electric fields of a given orientation and tension, known as electroporation. The strength of the electric field is designed to destroy any microorganisms and viruses irrespective of their specified type. The technology is automated and ensures that at least 99% of microorganisms are made inactive. It also prevents any residue from accumulating inside the device, thus eradicating any chance of a revival or remission of any microorganisms. Furthermore, the devices using the technology;

  • are durable – service life of the equipment is ten years
  • need no expendables
  • are energy saving – their energy consumption is similar to that of an LED light bulb
  • are environmentally friendly – they use no chemicals in the inactivation process, and do not require any special disposal.

The revolutionary technology used in Pentacomp’s Clean Air Solution, does more than ensure the improvement of indoor air quality. It guarantees:

  • the prevention of spread of infections and multi-drug resistant bacteria
  • acceleration of the recovery period in case of influenza and other infections
  • protection of immunocompromised individuals
  • elimination of mold in hot and humid environments
  • saving cost on overheads for food and agricultural businesses by increasing shelf life of products.
