From NASA to Now

From an iconic NASA mission to technology that has changed how air is cleaned, we are proud and honored to be a part of it.
 

“Houston, we’ve had a problem.”

 
This was the call to action that inspired a team of NASA engineers to solve a problem, pronto. The result was a device that brought the wounded Apollo 13 capsule and its astronauts safely back to Earth.

 
 
 
 
 


Different Problem, Same Expertise

shuttle_earthThe call went out again (somewhat less urgently) when astronauts aboard the International Space Station needed to eliminate the ethylene gas produced by plants that accelerates ripening. Again, NASA engineers, with the help from the University of Wisconsin, found a solution: an air purification technology that eliminates 99% of the ethylene gas from the air. As a result food packers, florists and grocery chains have been using Airocide technology since 1998 to extend the shelf life of flowers, fruits and vegetables (as much as ten days) by eliminated the ethylene gas trapped in storage facilities and refrigerators. This one-of-a-kind technology helps save a portion of the 27 billion pounds of fruits and vegetables lost to spoilage each year.

Further testing showed Airocide technology was virtually 100% effective in destroying Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’S) – basically the bad stuff emitted by products you have around in your practice, like disinfectants, cleaning supplies and particulate matter and unscavenged medical gas generated from dental procedures. It was also found that Airocide technology eliminates pollen, dust mites, viruses, bacteria and other biological pollutants traditional air purifiers couldn’t even attempt. These findings were truly a breath of fresh air.

In 2003, Airocide technology was introduced into dental offices, hospitals, clinics, emergency rooms and daycare centers to help stop the spread of infectious disease. Further studies consistently demonstrate dramatic reductions in mold and bacteria counts. This means that without Airocide DS, the mold and bacteria in your office will remain consistent or even grow. Introduce Airocide into your practice and reach the new level of clarity you and your patients deserve.
