Companies all across the country and even here in Acadiana are working on finding ways to stop the spread of COVID and other illnesses.
Pathogens are just about anywhere from restaurants, school, the gym or in our workplace.
When someone coughs or sneezes micro vapor containing harmful bacteria rise and enter the return supply of the HVAC system. Those same particles can then be pushed back out to the rest of the building not stopping the spread.
That’s why a local Lafayette ￼company has come up with a solution to kill the bacteria with UVC light.
The UL Grad company Pure Light and Clean Air has created a germicidal technology that is installed into the HVAC system that kills 99.9% of bacteria.
￼“It kills everything from influenza, tuberculosis, smallpox, your common Cold, as well COVID-19,” said Terrance Adams.
So how it works is the company engineers the technology to fit your situation for size and space.
“Our product sits on the coils and it burns everything off,” said Adams.
“When the particles come through your coil system and get in your duct at work it’s constantly recirculating,” said Adams. “So you can have those pathogens￼ and it’s never really leaving your building. With our system installed on every air path, it’s completely eradicated￼.”
“Our product sits on the coils it burns everything off the biofilm does particulates on the coils to keep them where they were the day that you installed it
And Adam says it’s not just for health safety it also saves businesses’ money as well.
He says UVC pays for itself. The biofilm decreases the efficiency of an HVAC system. So the technology improves the air quality reducing energy costs and the need for annual coiling.
The company has worked with the CDC and WHO to create safe technology that works and has been very busy since the pandemic hit.
In fact, one local business that is using it in their facility is Braeden Technology out in Broussard.
￼”When this whole pandemic hit we are considered an essential business so we had to keep running,“ said Bobby Brignac, VP of Engineering.
Established in 2008, Braeden brings together a team of engineers, designers, and technicians from various disciplines designing, installing, and commissioning a variety of projects, in all industries.
Brignac said it was important for their employees to not get sick and find a solution to work safely.
‘It can disrupt a lot of things,” said Brignac. “So whenever we have to come together we need an extra level of protection. A mask is one thing but adding the UV system is definitely taking it to another level.”
￼￼￼￼Another level where companies can try to protect their employees and customers who walk through the doors.
