B-VIRUS FREE from BAUER KOMPRESSOREN
Highly effective breathing air protection against SARS-CoV-2 and other pathogens!
The new patent-pending B-VIRUS FREE filter offers highly effective protection against viruses, bacteria and moulds for firefighters and disaster teams.
BAUER KOMPRESSOREN has developed B-VIRUS FREE – a solution that eliminates viruses at the air intake stage. The system is designed to protect firefighters, divers, pressure chamber operators and medical staff from these hazards whenever they require respiratory equipment for their daily operations.
The new B-VIRUS FREE protective filter system reliably neutralizes – depending on the charging rate of the compressor – up to 99.9% of the corona viruses, bacteria and special moulds can be removed from the intake air.
Viruses are particularly insidious because they are invisible and highly communicable – and cannot be measured by sensors. They can spread at lightning speed by contact or droplet infection. Inhaled in ambient air, they can pass through any commercially available standard air purification system. Even the high temperatures and pressure levels of the compression process have little effect on them because of their short exposure to the process.
Free of chemicals and ozone, B-VIRUS FREE uses a special UVC light source to destroy the described pathogens in the air flow of the intake air before they can reach the compressor. The highly effective 254-nm UV wavelength is absorbed by the pathogens’ DNA and RNA, where the photons destroy the bonds between the DNA and RNA strands of the viruses, bacteria and mould spores and effectively prevent them from reproducing
B-VIRUS FREE can be ordered alongside any new BAUER system and is also easy to retrofit.
Long maintenance intervals keep operating costs down. The filter does not require replaceable filter cartridges. The UVC light source has an extremely long service life of approx. 2,000 hours and is simple to replace. The control unit reliably displays the filter functions and includes visual and acoustic warning signals for the event of a malfunction, e.g. in a power cut. A standard 220/230V power outlet is all that is needed for operation. A version for regions with 110V power supply is also available
