The Benefits of Air Purification in Dentistry

The Benefits of Air Purification in Dentistry

With Covid-19 being mainly an airborne contracted virus, working directly in the patients' mouth exposes dentists to a concentrated threat that they spend their whole day around. 

Throughout the year, the mitigation of Covid has changed and whilst you should still wash your hands for the recommended time, the majority of Covid-19 has been found to be airborne. This has pushed us to develop air purifying units to help combat the contaminants that are being breathed out.  

Most high end air purification includes multiple layers of filtration to effectively kill and reduce the levels of Covid in the air. In some air purifiers, UV lamp filtration trays are used to kill all harmful viruses and pathogens.

These are now being tested in schools to help clear the air in poorly ventilated rooms and manage the level of positive cases and have been found to be highly effective too. 

Air purification is a highly viable option for the mitigation of contraction rates in dentists and can remove high levels of particulates per hour which will greatly help to reduce transmission rates, however the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) is also highly necessary as this can help to further protect dentists by acting as a physical barrier against particulates. 

If you are considering air purification, you can calculate the ventilation rate using this formula: ACH = CADR divided by the room volume. The ventilation rate is exactly half of this. The CADR will be found in the statistics section for the product. 

ACH - Air Changes per Hour

CADR - Clean Air Delivery Rate

Are you doing everything you can to keep your employees safe on the return to the workplace? 

With up to 99% effectivity, the ViroAir® Plus Air Purifier, the latest advancement in air purification technology, comes equipped with a HEPA filter (high-efficiency particulate air filter) and a UV lamp for sterilisation to keep yourself and your colleagues around you breathing clean, disinfected air.

The ViroAir® Plus eliminates harmful contaminants and pathogens in the immediate environment through its 4 stage filtration process, capable of processing and purifying up to 750 cubic meters of air in one hour. 

The Process

After the main vent filter has extracted dust and other large particles, UV-C Lamp Disinfectant Technology is used to expose viruses to UV radiation, helping to deactivate viruses and other harmful pathogens. 

The air is then passed through into the highly absorbent Activated Carbon Filtration Tray. Microbes and other pathogens then stick to the filtration device and become trapped, thanks to its large surface area. 

Finally, the High-Efficiency Particulate Air Filter (HEPA-13) helps to pick up any last remaining contaminants as small as 0.1 to 0.3 microns.

Details

The ViroAir Plus is equipped with a quad filter system to provide the highest quality air purification to keep you, your customers and colleagues breathing clean, bacteria free air all day.

Air is drawn in through an intake at the bottom of the unit and then through the pre-filter where larger particles such as dust are filtered out.

Next, the air is filtered through the UV-C Lamp chamber which is then hit by a strong UV-C lamp. This helps to kill all bacteria and viruses through UV radiation.

 A H13 HEPA (High-efficiency particulate absorbing) is used to further strain the air and has been proven to remove up to 99.97% of all particulates as small as 0.3 microns.

Finally, there is an activated carbon filter which is highly efficient at breaking down formaldehyde, benzene, TVOC, ammonia, smoke and other strong odors and poisonous gases. This type of filter is better than mechanical filter options as the activated carbon can absorb particulates and traps them inside the unit. 

The control panel is the key to making your unit best suited to your work space. With four fan speeds for controllable filtration, a humidifier for better staff health, toggleable brightness and timer for efficient energy usage and optional UV-C lamp cleansing for extra defense against airborne contaminants.

Filters

This product has replaceable filters which will need to be changed when they have been active for a certain amount of time. 

Activated Carbon Filter:

It is recommended that this component is replaced annually for best filtration output.

HEPA-13 Filter:

It is recommended that this component is replaced every 2000 hours however this is subjective to the cleanliness of the surrounding environment and are likely to get more hours from each filter.
