PremierOne MUV-403H-16/5 multi-voltage UV germicidal air purifier with odor control without use of harmful chemicals. Significantly control harmful pollutants and microorganisms such as mold, bacteria, viruses, fungi and VOCs. Enjoy the fresh smell of clean air after removing odors of tobacco smoke, mold, mildew, paint, plus hundreds more VOCs are eliminated.
A powerful 180 microwatts (16" lamp) twin-tube H lamp is three times more stronger than single-tube lamp with 2 year lifetime. Features an auto-sensing ballast that works from 120Vac to 240 Vac; rated 50 watts .40/.20 amp.
The PREMIEREone™ Oxidizing System
purify the air by breaking down harmful substances. In the oxidizing process, substances like formaldehyde and other biological allergens breaks down into simpler compounds like water and carbon dioxide.
The MUV-403H units have an oxidizer lamp installed and a germicidal twin H lamp. Contains sheet metal mounting screws, 120 Vac power cord (PC-120), alcohol pad to clean lamp and installation & maintenance instructions.

How (PCO) Photocatalytic Oxidation Purifies the Air
Photocatalytic oxidation or PCO is a process of combining UV rays with Titanium dioxide. This process creates hydroxyl radicals and super-oxide ions, which reacts to contaminants in the air such as, mold, fungi, bacteria, virus and VOCs (volatile organic compounds). This chemical reaction of super-charged ion and hydroxyl radicals breaks pollutants cellular structure such as DNA/HNA chromosomes. The results are harmless water molecules, carbon dioxide and more purified air.
Corona Virus (covid-19) and Air Purifiers
The corona virus is an airborne virus that can live up to three hours in the air. The virus particles are small enough to pass through HEPA filters. Most HEPA filters are 99.7% efficient in removing particles down to 0.3 micros
and thereafter becomes ineffective. Covid-19 particles are 0.06 to 0.14 microns and are not effected by HEPA filters.
UVC (ultraviolet germicidal) in combination of PCO (Photocatalytic Oxidation) air purifier are a promising strong candidate and most effective at breaking microorganisms such as virus, bacteria and fungi. Although, no covid-19 samples are available for testing. UVC and PCOs are highly effective at neutralizing similar virus such as MS2 (common virus/influenza). A UV wavelength of 254nm are effective in damaging microorganism DNA and in combination of PCO system serves as dual role of photocatalyst and microbial disinfection leaving a more purified air. In addition, PCO air purifiers are self-generating with less maintenance and several years of service life.
