Fresh-Aire UV is committed to making the most effective, reliable, and safest air purification products possible. Growing concerns about the safety of ozone and other airborne reactive oxidizers for odor removal and the recent ASHRAE Position Document on Filtration and Air Cleaning have made it clear that our industry needs to change. Today many air purifiers still broadcast large amounts of ozone or other airborne oxidizers into occupied spaces as a means of attacking odors and airborne microbes, this approach is clearly unsafe.
Innovation is the Key
Our success may be a direct result of our commitment to research and development. With numerous patents and patents pending Triatomic Environmental is constantly striving to create practical solutions that benefit our health and the environment.
Fresh-Aire UV started as Triatomic Environmental, which was originally formed in 1988 as an engineering company that manufactured ozone generators and other indoor air quality products. In 2001, the company expanded its focus with the introduction of the original Fresh-Aire UV brand of germicidal UVC air handler treatment systems.
January 2003 saw the release of the Pulsed-UV Air Treatment System for single pass treatment of airborne microorganisms for use in commercial applications. In 2004, Fresh-Aire UV released UV Filter, a combined 1” reactive filter media and UVC light.
The hugely popular Blue Tube UV debuted in 2005. This innovative product design features a quick and simple low voltage solution for HVAC contractors to install UVC lights in furnaces and air handlers. Ice UV (for ice machine disinfection) was introduced in 2008 as was the Purity Whole-House system (UVC light combined with MERV11 filtration).
2011 saw the introduction of the APCO line of products which combine UVC disinfection with activated carbon catalyst cells. APCO’s ability to neutralize both biological and VOC contaminants without producing harmful ozone earned it the prestigious 2011 AHR Innovation Award for indoor air quality. Mini UV was also introduced in 2011. It addresses biofouling in mini-split AC systems. It was updated in 2019 to Mini UV LED, one of the first UV LED disinfection products. 2019 was also the year that Purity Low Profile (polarized electronic particulate filtration) was added to the Fresh-Aire UV product line. In 2021 Fresh-Aire UV joined forces with DiversiTech Corporation.
