Active vs Passive Technology

Cleaning indoor air like nature cleans the air outdoors

In contrast to products that treat odours with passive technologies, ActivTek uses up to 5 nature-based, active technologies to bring the solution to the problem. Passive technologies include filters and electronic air cleaners which require the air to get to the unit.

ActivTek air purification technologies work together to clean indoor air like nature cleans air outdoors. It is the only product with validation testing from multiple universities, proving the ability to reduce up to 99.99% of mould, fungi, bacteria and viruses including MRSA and Avian Bird Flu on Surfaces.

The ActivePure RCI Cell

By engineering the proper light wavelengths into the ActivePure cell, ActivTek Environmental has developed a highly effective system designed to utilize germicidal UV light. Falling between visible UV light and invisible X-Rays in the light spectrum, UVX makes use of the same oxidation and ionizing properties of light as naturally occurring sunlight. ActivePure is created by taking advantage of these ionizing properties and combining them with the photocatalytic reactions of specific rare and noble metals. This innovative use of light is what helps make ActivePure so effective.

Typical INDUCT Installation

ActiveTek INDUCT units install in any HVAC system directly into the plenum or directly above the air handler in remote or ‘downstream’ location. They work by converting water vapour (H2O) and Oxygen (O2) from untreated air into hydro-peroxides and hydroxyls, eliminating various microbes (odours, mould, bacteria, viruses, VOC’s etc) creating a healthier indoor environment. Untreated air enters the air handlers, passes by the INDUCT unit and releases treated air through the AC vents.
