RxAir 400 has a patented “kill chamber” forces air around 3 powerful UV-C tubes for an extended period, ensuring the proper 254 nm wavelength dosage to maximize its inactivation rate; The “kill chamber” provides approximately one full year of use and is easily replaced.
- Powerful fans draw in air filled with bacteria, viruses and other pathogens at the bottom of the unit.
- Air passes through the patented “kill chamber” which houses three high intensity UV-C lights that have been proven to inactivate viruses, bacteria, fungi and mold by damaging their genetic structure. Purified air exits the top of the unit.

- The RX400 uses UV-C lights at 254nm wavelength. At this wavelength, the lamp does not produce ozone.Also, the glass encasing the lamp elements are coated with Titanium Dioxide and is designated non-ozone. UV-C lights are contained in a canister which keeps emission very low.
Where is the best place to keep RxAir 400 in one’s home? (i.e. a specific location in the house or spot in a room)
- The unit should be placed in a location that pulls the contaminated air away from the living or sleeping space. For example, in a bedroom, the unit should be placed in the corner of the bedroom furthest from the head of the sleeping individual, thus pulling untreated air away from that person.
- For highest performance and effectiveness in commercial use, always place the unit furthest from individuals, drawing untreated air away from staff and customers.
