Drawing inspiration from nature, GreenTech Environmental has a passion for technologies that contribute to healthier lifestyles. Since 2009, we have always been proficient at product development and cultivating an experience of improved quality of life. These technologies have the power to enhance your life, too.
Active Air Purification
At the heart of GreenTech Environmental’s pureAir and other purification products is the concept of active air purification. Unlike passive air filters that require air to pass through them in order to be cleaned, our active air purifiers propel powerful oxidizers out to the sources of contaminants and pollution in your space, continuously sanitizing the air and surfaces. Using the advanced technologies described below, purification elements such as activated oxygen, plasma, and negative ions are created and continuously projected out into your environment to actively clean the air.
Activated oxygen, sometimes called ozone or O3, contains three atoms of oxygen rather than the two atoms we normally breathe. Activated oxygen is the second most powerful sterilant in the world and can be used to destroy a host of contaminants including bacteria, viruses, and odors. This powerful purification is found naturally in all outdoor environments and is a result of things like lightning and sunshine. While activated oxygen is very powerful, it has a very short life cycle. When environmental contaminants such as odors, bacteria, or viruses make contact with activated oxygen, the extra atom of oxygen is consumed, and the pathogen is deactivated or killed. Only breathable oxygen, O2, remains.
Active Radiant Catalysis (ARC)
GreenTech Environmental’s Active Radiant Catalysis (ARC) is a proprietary photocatalytic oxidation technology that provides continuous air and surface sanitation. Replicating nature’s purifying process of using energy to activate a catalyst, water vapor is converted into advanced oxidation products (AOPs) including vaporized hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), hydroxides (OH-), and superoxides (O2-). These powerful oxidizers inactivate microbes at the source, rendering contaminants harmless. The result is the destruction of odors, mold, bacteria, viruses, and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
What makes the GreenTech ARC technology superior?
- USA-made broad-spectrum UV lamp (not just 254 nm)
- Hydrated coating
- Proprietary Quad Metallic catalyst formula
- Maximum surface area – 16.4 times greater than competitors
Ions travel out into the environment, charging particulates in the air and then, like magnets, attracting oppositely charged particles until they gain sufficient mass to fall out of the breathing space.
GreenTech Air technology incorporates 2 forms of ionization:
- Needlepoint – (single needle or carbon brush) 2M ions/cu cm
- Pulse Ionization – “RF Ionizer Effect” produced by an electromagnetic pulse to charge particles and reduce particles in the air.
Plasma is the most common state of matter in the universe as a whole and makes up the sun and stars. It consists of a gas of ions and free electrons. pureAir purifiers with plasma generation propel powerful oxidizers into your space, including hydroxyls and vaporized hydrogen peroxide, to actively destroy mold, bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens.
Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC)
pureHeat zone heaters incorporate a unique conducting element where the resistivity of the element increases exponentially with increasing temperature. It produces high power when it is cold, and rapidly heats up to a constant temperature. Above this temperature, the PTC element acts as an electrical isolator and the heater can never overheat. This makes our zone heaters ultra-safe. And, because the maximum temperature is limited, these heating elements cannot start a fire.
Another difference between pureHeat and traditional heaters is that power levels change automatically in response to ambient or environmental demands. pureHeat’s PTC heating element draws full rated power upon startup to quickly heat the element and then reduces power consumption as the setpoint temperature is reached. The heater only works as hard as it has to in order to maintain temperature, saving energy and achieving a consistent temperature from floor to ceiling.
