ECEX Fights Coil Pathogens With Powerful Chemical-free Disinfectant
ECEX now supplies and installs CoilCare CC-X, a powerful automated, chemical-free disinfectant that harnesses UV light to prevent bacteria, viruses and organic growth from taking-hold on cooling coils.
CoilCare CC-X – manufactured by US-based BioZone Scientific International – can be retrofitted into existing ventilation units to instantly start fighting the bacteria that builds-up on cooling coil faces. This dramatically reduces airborne organic growth throughout the entire HVAC system, thus significantly improving indoor air quality (IAQ).
As air is cooled by passing it across the coil, condensation can create a biofilm on the coil face. This creates the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and reduces the efficiency of the coil itself.
John Grenville, managing director of ECEX, explained: “Ensuring the cleanliness and efficiency of ventilation systems bringing fresh air into our workplaces is increasingly important. Keeping coils clean and pathogen free improves cleanliness, airflow and energy efficiency, while contributing to good IAQ, essential for building occupants’ health and wellbeing.”
Mr Grenville added: “The filtration in most air handling units only targets particulates. CoilCare CC-X is different because it also keeps bacteria and viruses at bay.
Enhance energy efficiency
“But the benefits don’t end there. By removing the biofilm, CoilCare CC-X restores the thermal efficiency of the coil, enhancing the energy efficiency of the whole system. Once installed, CoilCare CC-X is inexpensive to run and virtually maintenance free.”
ECEX can supply and install CoilCare CC-X systems into most air handling units, offering the perfect accompaniment to its AHU refurbishment services.
