NASA's Air Purifier: Airocide

NASA has chosen Airocide as its air purifier of choice. This technology was originally developed for the space agency by the University of Wisconsin and was used to make the air safe for astronauts on the International Space Station and Columbia shuttle. Airocide is a next-generation photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) technology that is designed to eliminate harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the air. The Airocide unit consists of two main components: a catalyst bed and special lamps that operate continuously.

The catalyst bed is activated by light from the lamps, releasing molecules called radicals that attach to the catalyst. These radicals react with organic particles in the air, destabilizing and destroying bacteria, viruses, pollen, spores, and more. The only thing released is clean air without any harmful emissions. Airocide is an award-winning air purifier that is versatile in its applications.

It can effectively remove airborne allergens, pet dander, mold, and VOCs from your home's air. Unlike traditional air purifiers that use filters to trap large particles, Airocide's PCO technology eliminates even the smallest and most harmful pathogens. To keep your Airocide unit running smoothly, all you need to do is replace the reaction chambers (sold as a pair) once a year. There's no mess like filters, just clean air all year round.

Outdoor activities such as passing cars can produce air pollutants that enter your home through the air conditioning system, but with Airocide you can rest assured that your home's air will be free of these contaminants.
