APCO - DETOX THE AIR

Introducing Advanced Photocatalytic Oxidation

 

The award-winning APCO system (Advanced Photocatalytic Oxidation) represents an entirely new type of air purifier. The APCO unit is installed in the ductwork of the central air system where it scrubs the air as is passes by. By using a unique combination of UVC light and activated carbon APCO achieves  unmatched germicidal and odor reduction effectiveness without producing any harmful ozone. APCO is particularly effective at reducing odor-causing and potentially toxic volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which include toxic chemical vapors like formaldehyde and toluene.

The Other Two Thirds

Airborne contaminants can be divided roughly into thirds. Conventional filtration is effective against particulates, like dust, but has no effect on the other two thirds. APCO is proven to safely reduce both VOCs and biological contaminants inside the air system and throughout the home.

Pick a Winner

APCO is a winner of the prestigious AHR Innovation Award, the
highest honor in the HVAC industry! There are several APCO models, designed
to fit all types of air systems, which all use the the same award-winning technology.

Odor Control

Let's face it, no one wants visiting friends or family to smell the cat box or last night's garlic sauce. You could use a spray or a candle but those things just perfume the air. APCO actually removes odors by transforming odor-causing VOC molecules into harmless water vapor and CO2. So keep the cat, and fry that fish!

Clean Coils

The UVC light in APCO works just as well at keeping AC coils clean as our non-PCO products. Moldy coils shorten the life of the air system and waste energy by reducing efficiency. UVC light kills the mold and reduces the need for system maintenance.

No Worries!

We are so confident in the quality of our design and manufacturing that this product comes with a lifetime warranty on all parts except the UV lamp (which needs to be replaced every one or two years depending on model).

What APCO Does

Indoor Air Quality

According to the EPA indoor air pollution is often five times worse than outdoor and represents a significant health risk.  An APCO whole-house air purifier improves indoor air quality by destroying odor-causing and potentially toxic VOCs, while sterilizing mold, bacteria, viruses, and allergens from the air stream.

How APCO Works

Advanced Photocatalytic Oxidation

APCO detoxes the air with a process called photocatalytic oxidation (PCO), a technology similar to the catalytic converter on your car’s exhaust. UVC light reacts with titanium dioxide infused into the carbon which effectively disintegrates the captured contaminants, leaving only harmless water vapor and CO₂ which are released back into the air. This process leaves the carbon cells clean so they never fill up or need to be replaced. The result is clean, odor-free air throughout the home.

Germ-Killing Power of UVC Light

For over a century scientists have known about the germ-killing properties of UVC light. Because this frequency of light is filtered out by the Earth's atmosphere microorganisms have no defense against it. It works by scrambling their DNA which prevents them from reproducing.

APCO Products

APCO

 

The original full-size APCO features a 13" Fresh-Aire UV lamp and 6 activated carbon cells. Models include low-voltage 18-32 VAC single or dual (ER, DER) and line-voltage 120-277 single or dual (SI, DI). APCO Dual systems come with an second remote UV lamp which can be mounted where needed for additional UV disinfection.

 

APCO is available with a one or two year UV lamp.

APCO RT

 

APCO RT is designed for smaller ducts and features an 11" Fresh-Aire UV lamp and 4 activated carbon cells. Models include low-voltage 18-32 VAC single (ER) and line-voltage 120-277 single or dual (ST, DT). APCO RT Dual systems come with an second remote UV lamp which can be mounted where needed for additional UV disinfection.

 

APCO RT is available with a one or two year UV lamp.

APCO MAG

 

APCO MAG is designed for internal mounting using a magnet (or screws)and is available in an either a 15" lamp (6 cells) or 11" (4 cells) configuration. Models include low-voltage 18-32 VAC single (ER) and line-voltage 120-277 single or dual (ST, DT). APCO MAG Dual systems come with an second remote UV lamp which can be mounted where needed for additional UV disinfection.

 

APCO MAG is available with a one or two year UV lamp.
