Air Sterilization Products
Based on its proprietary AUVS technology, Novatron has developed the BioProtectorTM air sterilization product line. These products can be integrated into HVAC systems and manufacturing and laboratory air supply systems to provide sterile air for buildings, parts of buildings, manufacturing processes and other applications.
BioProtectorTM products provide the ultimate in biological protection for bio-manufacturing facilities, hospitals, clean rooms, laboratories, defense installations and commercial buildings. The products can be easily scaled for larger or smaller airflow volumes. Systems are available for virtually any size space. The company currently has units suitable for spaces between 100 and 60,000 square feet.
The performance of the AUVS technology and BioProtector products has been tested by the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), and in independent, third party tests sponsored by the Department of Defense and the U.S. Army.

OZONE ABATEMENT PRODUCTS
Ozone (O3 ) is a form of oxygen that consists of three oxygen atoms joined together into a molecule. This form of oxygen has significantly different characteristics than the common oxygen molecule (O2), which consists of two oxygen atoms.The ordinary O2 form of oxygen is, of course, present in the air we breathe and is indeed necessary for life.
The role of ozone in the environment is more complicated. First, ozone in the upper atmosphere plays an important role in protecting life on earth by absorbing dangerous short wavelength UV from the sun. However, it is harmful in the lower atmosphere since it is an irritant when breathed and is therefore an undesirable air pollution component.
Many important industrial processes use or generate ozone. In order to maintain suitable air quality, the ozone content in air emitted from such industrial processes must be reduced to an acceptable concentration level before the air can be released into the environment.
UV Ozone Abatement
Ultraviolet energy at the proper wavelength interacts with ozone to disassociate it into ordinary oxygen (O2) and atomic oxygen. The wavelength used in Novatron's AUVS systems, is, in fact, effective for disassociation of ozone.
Very high, unifrom UV doses are required in large volumes of air to accomplish significant ozone reduction in industrial air streams. Such UV performance is not practical using conventional UV technology. Novatron's AUVS reflective cavity technology allows the creation of uniform UV irradiances that are 5 to 20 times those that would be available from a conventional UV system. These high UV intensity levels make it possible and practical to eliminate ozone in industrial airstreams.
Novatron has used the AUVS technology to develop its OzoEliminatorTM product line for industrial ozone abatement. These units can be provided with instrumentation to allow real time measurement of ozone Destruction Removal Efficiency (DRE) and monitoring of ozone emission. Novatron's OzoEliminatorTM products are reliable, with no moving parts and minimal maintenance requirements.
