With a degree in graphic design and an emphasis on architecture, Jerrod Keith knows how spaces function best. Jerrod is the inventor of Puraclenz’s reaction core system for the photocatalytic purifier patent, helping design one of the best PCO purifiers available today. In addition, he is responsible for the research and efficacy development of all Puraclenz air purification products. 

“It’s not only about walking through a space, but how the air moves through it,” he explained. And this principle is what brought Puraclenz to life. So, with airflow on his mind and a desire to improve homes, workspaces, healthcare facilities, schools, and more, Jerrod got to work.

Puraclenz vs. other air purifiers: it’s in the air

Puraclenz is a first-of-its-kind air purifier.

Puraclenz is a first-of-its-kind air purifier. The brand’s filtration system deactivates pathogens mid-air and on exposed surfaces to reduce bacteria and mold in the air. But how did this technology form?

Jerrod and his team focused on technology that many people wouldn’t consider but is vital to the effectiveness of Puraclenz: PCO. He described how Puraclenz is not just another air purifier. Instead, it cleans indoor air and surfaces at the source, significantly reducing viruses, mold, and bacteria.

Standard air cleaners only trap pathogens that pass through their filter. Puraclenz delivers ions through the air, so it can clean pollutants in the air and on hard-to-reach exposed surfaces that hand-cleaning and HEPA filters can’t reach.

In a room with conventional air purifiers, such as HEPA filters, when someone coughs or sneezes, microorganisms must move through the space to the fan unit, where they’re collected. However, what makes Puraclenz one of the best PCO purifiers available is that it doesn’t need a filter to work. Instead, it can deactivate pathogens mid-air.

The best PCO purifiers have the best research.

For 50+ years, PCO technology has been used to purify the air and exposed surfaces in scientific locations, such as the International Space Station.

There are more than 40 years of research behind the Puraclenz technology. But more recently, several third-party laboratories tested the capabilities. And the results are impressive. 

Efficacy tests show that the Puraclenze P3000 unit is highly effective against methicillin-resistant staphylococcus epided-ridus (MRSE), an infection that is not only difficult to treat but deadly too. Unfortunately, this staph infection is also the easiest to catch. The National Library of Medicine even calls methicillin-resistant staphylococcus-based infections “one of the most successful modern pathogens.” That’s why third-party laboratory tests are so important. Trials show that the P3000 reduced the presence of the infection by 99.4% in a 7-hour large chamber trial. 

For half a century, PCO technology has been used to purify the air and exposed surfaces in the International Space Station or lab settings. Jerrod and the Puraclenz team have harnessed PCO technology and created one of the best air and surface purifier units. Even more impressive, while other companies are more expensive and have limited availability, Puraclez is ready for the mass market at better pricing points.

The future of air purification is PCO technology – Puraclenz will be a driving force to get us there.

The best PCO purifiers are also what is best for the environment.

Puraclenz can cover a large area with little energy use, low ozone rates, and a low carbon footprint.

Puraclenz technology uses UV lamps that do not pollute the air but can produce an unprecedented density of ions. This is thanks to the highly efficient catalyst design developed by the Puraclenz team. The streamlined, tapered shape also decreases particle age by boosting contact time with the receptive titanium dioxide surface.

In addition, Previous devices using UV lights produced high quantities of ozone. Still, PCO technology avoids that issue since it relies on the ions produced and not the light itself.

However, Puraclenz doesn’t just offer one of the best PCO purifiers. It is a first-of-its-kind design that can clean air and surfaces exposed indoors, covering a large area with little energy use, low ozone rates, and a low carbon footprint. 

The majority of other options are passive devices that draw air from an interior space into their purifier, filter or purify it, and then return the treated air to the same interior space. Only the air they draw into their device is treated by these systems. As a result, they typically use a lot more energy, need expensive filters changed frequently, and do not clean surfaces.

Breathe easier with cleaner indoor air

With traditional air purifiers like HEPA, when someone coughs or sneezes, pathogens have to move to a filter to be collected. With Puraclenz they’re captured mid-air.

Jerrod says that the difference with Puraclenz is that Puraclenz dynamically deactivates pathogens in mid-air and on exposed surfaces. By cleaning a typical indoor space, Puraclenz reduces the likelihood of viruses infecting other people or settling on surfaces.

But most of all, the best PCO purifier should make people feel safer and more confident about the air they breathe at home and work.

That’s what Puraclenz offers: peace of mind that the air you are breathing is safe.
