How does UV light disinfect the air we breathe?
Bluezone by Middleby Model 450 kills airborne pathogens like the flu, cold and corona-virus with UV-C germicidal lamps. Ultraviolet lamps have a long history of sanitizing surfaces in laboratories and food-processing industries and also for disinfecting water supplies. Since the UV-C lamps are locked inside the Bluezone chamber it is safe to operate 24/7 in occupied spaces to keep your guests and employees safe!
Model 450 works by pulling air into a chamber where it is scrubbed with an ultraviolet germicidal light process that destroys a virus’ RNA. This eliminates the ability for it to replicate itself, protecting both staff and guests. Bluezone has received clearance as a Class II medical device by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) based on clinical data that demonstrated efficacy, safety and reliability.
- UV-C bulbs kill up to 99.9995% of viruses in the air, including corona-virus
- Treats up to 9,000 ft3 (255 m3)
- 150 CFM flow rate circulates the air quickly and continuously kills virus
- Oxidation catalysts destroys VOCs and unpleasant odors
- Destroys airborne viruses including the cold, flu and corona-virus in dining and working spaces
- Protect employees, customers and guests
After the initial investment of a Bluezone unit, the only requirement is to change out the bulbs roughly once a year, a task easily managed by the facilities staff, requiring only 15 minutes. No more switching out filters every few weeks. Plus, the unit lets you know when a new bulb is needed, eliminating the guesswork.
