Hydroxyl Basics

Hydroxyl GeneratorHydroxyls generators were first used in the international space station as well as the U.S. Space shuttles.  The ability of hydroxyl generators to cleanse the air without threat any to people, equipment, or plants is remarkable.  If you are familiar with ozone generators, you know that ozone generators produce powerful tri-oxygen (O3) from normal air.  While a powerful, ozone can only be used in vacated buildings.

Hydroxyl generator create a safe output of hydroxyls (a form of hydrogen peroxide) that will eliminate VOC odors associated with smoke, mold odors, urine, household odors, bio cleanup, petroleum fumes, and cigarettes.  

The big difference is that hydroxyl generators can safely run in the public or occupied areas with people and ordinary activites in the building.  There is no interruption of activies.  

The basics are that humidity (water or H2O) exists naturally in our air, and so does oxygen in the form of O2 molecules. To make the hydroxyl in the form of H2O2, a catalytic reaction must happen.  The hydroxyl generator uses ultraviolet light and titatnium coated surfaces to cause that catalytic reaction. The key is plenty of UV light, ample titanium coated surface, and good air flow.

H2O2 is also known as hydrogen peroxide, and hydrogen peroxide is a fantastic sanitizing and cleansing agent.  During infection outbreaks, hydroxyl generators can counter the spread of infection as quickly as contagion is introduced.  Treating any building is simply a matter of cycling the air of the building through the generators.

The idea of a chemical-free sanitizing a building makes hydroxyl generators a smart choice.  The H2O2 molecule quickly reverts back to H2O and normal oxygen (O2), meaning there is no residue, no irritants in the air, and need to buy more chemical products.

These hydroxyl radicals are known as the second most powerful oxidant in the world, only behind fluorine. 

Hydroxyls will react with as many as 5,000 different chemicals and compounds, to eliminate a very wide range of odors and VOCs.
