AirROS Commercial Cannabis Air Purification System
The commercial cannabis industry is booming, and with it comes the need for air purification systems to prevent and reduce the spread of mold. AirROS industrial air and surface purification systems are perfect for this task, thanks to their ability to quickly and effectively remove contaminants from the air and sanitize surfaces. This blog post will discuss how AirROS commercial cannabis air purification systems can help keep your grow room or cannabis greenhouse clean and healthy!
Air Purifiers vs. AirROS for Commercial Cannabis Facilities & Greenhouses
Most commercial air purifiers have a limit of cleaning only the air. Many commercial air purifiers rely on having mold, fungus, and other mold go through the air purifier. For example, if that mold like powdery mildew or botrytis does not go through the air purifier, it will likely become cross-contamination in the grow room due to an outbreak. As a result, you can lose multiple cannabis plants.
What makes AirROS different than other air purifiers for commercial cannabis facilities and greenhouses is that AirROS can purify the air and sanitize all surfaces inside the grow room or greenhouse 24/7. AirROS does not rely on having mold, fungus, or other pathogens go through the air purifier. AirROS systems diffuse dry hydrogen peroxide and low levels of ozone into the environment. These react with each other and create Trioxidane, an anti-microbial cleaning agent to sanitize surfaces. This includes:
- Equipment (dehumidifier, racks, environmental controls)
- Grow lights
- Of course the cannabis plants also!
Having mold like Powdery Mildew or Botrytis in the air or on surfaces, even though it does not go through the AirROS system; it still will be destroyed on the spot because of the Trioxidane that is being diffused constantly 24/7 into the grow room or greenhouse. The added benefit is protection to prevent any mold to regrow.
Dry Hydrogen Peroxide Purifiers For Commercial Cannabis
You may be thinking, well, I can buy a purifier that generates only Dry Hydrogen Peroxide (vapor – VHP or gas phased – GpHP) for surface treatment.
Here is what most people do not know. A single purifier that generates Dry Hydrogen Peroxide alone at safe levels cannot sanitize surfaces long distances. They only reach safe levels within a few feet from a single device. At those low levels it does not live long enough to provide good surface treatment everywhere.
You would have to buy multiple devices and spend a lot more money to have effective treatment.
AirROS Commercial Air & Surface Purifiers For Commercial Cannabis
AirROS can provide better and more extended surface treatment than Dry Hydrogen Peroxide Purifiers for grow rooms and greenhouses.
How does AirROS commercial cannabis air purification system work?
AirROS is a commercial air and surface purification system that can prevent pathogens, mold, viruses, yeast, and bacteria, reduce cross-contamination, and eliminate cannabis odor. AirROS purifiers utilize and create ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species). First, it kills pathogens and odor as it passes through the air purifier. In addition, it sanitizes the air that comes out of the purifier, enters the environment, and continues to sanitize all surfaces it contacts. Here is the 2 stage process:
Phase 1- Primary Air Cleaning
Placed within your room’s airflow, air from the environment containing microorganisms enters the purifier’s internal chamber. The reaction chamber creates non-thermal plasma and generates ROS. ROS is comprised of 5 short-lived, highly Reactive Oxygen Species:
- Atomic oxygen O(3P)
- Singlet oxygen 1O2
- Hydroxyl radical .OH
- Superoxide O2-
- Peroxynitrite ONOO-
These break down carbon-to-carbon bonds that sanitize the air and destroy all bacteria, molds, viruses, and other pathogens as they pass through the reaction chamber.
Phase 2- Secondary Surface & Air Cleaning
Provides Surface sanitation and continued Air sanitation. The purified air now diffused into the environment contains longer lived Reactive Oxygen Species:
- Gas-phased H2O2 (GpHP) or dry hydrogen peroxide
- Low concentration levels of O3 ozone
These combine and create Hydrogen Trioxide (H2O3) an Active Antimicrobial formed through the peroxone process. This H2O3 is very effective at sanitizing the surfaces and air 24/7.
So again, in addition to treating the ambient air as it passes through the reaction chamber, using the H2O2 and O3 diffused into the environment, creating H2O3 an active antimicrobial, our units will further sanitize all Surfaces and control Odor, resulting in cleaner air and environment 24/7.
Mold is a common problem in cannabis grow rooms, especially for commercial cultivators. It is crucial to have the proper airflow and ventilation when growing cannabis indoors to ensure that mold does not take root. Including an air and surface purifier will help prevent mold from settling on surfaces within the room.
