APCO UV Light Purifier

Introducing Advanced Photcatalytic Oxidation

The award-winning APCO UV Light Purifier (Advanced Photocatalytic Oxidation) represents an entirely new type of air purifier. APCO is installed in the ductwork of the central air system where it scrubs the air as is passes by. APCO’s unique combination of UV-C light and activated carbon achieves  unmatched germ and odor reduction without producing any harmful ozone. APCO is particularly effective at reducing odor-causing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which include toxic chemical vapors like formaldehyde and toluene.

What APCO Does

Odor Control

  • Let’s face it, no one wants visiting friends or family to smell the cat box or last night’s garlic sauce. You could use a spray or a candle but those things just perfume the air. The APCO UV Light Purifier actually removes odors by transforming odor-causing VOC molecules into harmless water vapor and CO2. So keep the cat, and fry that fish!

Clean Coils

  • The UV-C light in APCO works just as well at keeping AC coils clean as our non-PCO products. Moldy coils shorten the life of the air system and waste energy by reducing efficiency. UV-C light kills the mold and reduces the need for system maintenance.

Indoor Air Quality

  • According to the EPA indoor air pollution is often five times worse than outdoor and represents a significant health risk. An APCO whole-house air purifier improves indoor air quality by destroying odor-causing and potentially toxic VOCs, while sterilizing mold, bacteria, viruses, and allergens from the air stream.

How APCO Works

Advanced Photocatalytic Oxidation

APCO detoxes the air with a process called photocatalytic oxidation (PCO), a technology similar to the catalytic converter on your car’s exhaust. UV-C light reacts with titanium dioxide infused into the carbon which effectively disintegrates the captured contaminants, leaving only harmless water vapor and CO₂ which are released back into the air. This process leaves the carbon cells clean so they never fill up or need to be replaced. The result is clean, odor-free air throughout the home.

Germ-Killing Power of UV-C Light

For over a century, scientists have known about the germ-killing properties of UV-C light. Because this frequency of light is filtered out by the Earth’s atmosphere microorganisms have no defense against it. It works by scrambling their DNA which prevents them from reproducing.

Detox The Air

APCO cleans the air by combining UVC light and activated carbon; two technologies proven to be most effective at killing germs, and removing odors by reducing chemical vapors known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Some of them, like formaldehyde and toluene, are known to be toxic.

Erase Odors

  • APCO eliminates VOCs which are the source of nearly all odors. While some VOCs merely smell bad, others can pose significant health risks. APCO removes pet odors, cooking smells, and chemical vapors rising from furniture, carpet, and construction materials.

The Science

  • APCO detoxes the air with a process called photocatalytic oxidation (a technology similar to the catalytic converter on your car’s exhaust). The UV light reacts with titanium dioxide infused into the carbon which effectively disintegrates the captured contaminants, leaving only harmless water vapor and CO₂ which are released back into the air.
