Novaerus is a ‘Kill’ technology and has been developed here in Ireland by the Novaerus team of scientists and engineers.
It utilizes a NanoStrike technology which is an atmospheric plasma discharge — the same type of discharge found in lightning strikes — to kill and deactivate harmful airborne microorganisms.
Inside the devices there are plasma coils which generate the plasma discharge and as air is drawn over the coils, airborne viruses, bacteria and spores are killed and deactivated at the DNA level on contact.
Microorganisms are exposed directly to the plasma discharge as opposed to by-products of the discharge as the air flows over the coils. This means no dangerous by-products or chemicals are released and they are safe to use for the elderly, children or those who are vulnerable and sick.
Yes, they are medical grade devices and were developed for hospital settings to inactivate airborne viruses, bacteria and spores long before Covid-19 emerged.
They have no dangerous by-products or chemicals which means they can be used 24/7 around children, the elderly, or those who are vulnerable and sick.
One of the most prominent of the safety standards which Novaerus has achieved is the Californian Air Review Board (ARB) which is recognised as being the most stringent in the world. Considered the Gold Standard for emission safety standards, ARB has tested and certified Novaerus against their stringent low ozone test requirements as being safe for use around people.
As the NV200 and NV800 have no filters, there is little to no maintenance. This means no parts to be replaced, no training and no costly call outs from qualified technicians.
The NV800 has a “scrim” which should be removed and cleaned approximately once a month.
The Defend 400 and 1050 have three filters, pre, carbon and HEPA. As the filters only deal with dead matter, your own staff can change them. The annual cost of filter maintenance is *estimated at €1,300 per device (includes VAT)
* prices subject to change
The design life/product lifespan of each device is approximately 5 years based on recommendation that devices are running 24/7.
