People of the modern world are no strangers to the many airborne pollutants, contaminants, bacteria, and viruses that have been a part of our existence since before we were born. However, since the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020, the government, the private sector, and the general public have all taken a newfound interest in the purity and quality of the air we breathe as a fundamental element to the health and safety of human beings in public places. As a result, major investments and improvements have been made in the field of air sanitizer technology, and high-quality air purifiers are becoming a common addition to many existing businesses, schools, and other public buildings. Here, we will discuss one of the finest models in the marketplace to date, Scientific Air™ by Sterilumen, and how its 3-stage Air Sanitizer Technology works.

How Scientific Air™ Works

As mentioned in the title, Scientific Air™ uses a 3-stage air sanitizer system to purify the air and remove any airborne pathogens or contaminants in its vicinity. It performs this task by first drawing in the air around it into the device and through a high-efficiency particulate air filter (HEPA filter). This type of HEPA-approved air filter can remove at least 99.97% of dust, pollen, mold, bacteria, and any airborne particles with a size of 0.3 microns (µm). The diameter specification of 0.3 microns responds to the worst case; the most penetrating particle size (MPPS). Particles that are larger or smaller are trapped with even higher efficiency. Once the air passes the HEPA filter, it enters an ultraviolet germicidal light chamber. This chamber will effectively trap the air inside, and exposure to this intense level of ultraviolet light will destroy any microscopic pathogens that might be present. Finally, once the trapped air is released from the light chamber, an active carbon substrate will be applied to absorb and remove any remaining bacteria and odor before it is released back into the room as fresh, safe, and completely purified air. 

The Scientific Air™ Difference

The primary difference between the Scientific Air™ by Sterilumen and other purifiers in the marketplace is the effective use of all three air sanitation technologies with zero emissions. HEPA filters aren’t new, and neither is the use of activated carbon to eliminate odor and bacteria. Ultraviolet germicidal light technology is a common element seen in many newer residential HVAC systems, as well. However, many high-efficiency industrial air sanitizers have significant difficulties with the effective applications of one or more of these methods, and many of the ones that do pull it off do so with an unacceptable level of emissions or expose people to unsafe levels of ozone. Scientific Air™ by Sterilumen performs with impeccable results, without producing any emissions, ozones, or disruptions to the room’s airflow. This medical grade system is also portable, moisture resistant, and weighs only 72 pounds, 


As an industry leader, and innovator in air purification and surface disinfectant technology, Sterilumen offers a portfolio of technologically-advanced systems that are being used in businesses, hospitals, and government buildings around the world, and its air sanitation technology is currently used by NASA in the International Space Station.
