Everyone has got off a flight, bus or train journey and wondered if they are going to get sick afterwards. The risk of infection in enclosed mass transit spaces from recycled air is very high unless that air is continuously disinfected (and not just filtered) and surfaces cleaned properly. The whole transit system is at risk too, from passenger lobbies to baggage handling areas. And in international arrivals the chance of serious disease spread is too often a reality. Traditional ventilation systems do not disinfect. Activtek’s space-tested technology is the solution for continuous purification.

Passenger Experience Is Improved With Cleaner Air

There’s no getting away from the fact that shared transportation systems are a key source of infection spread. But there’s no need for them to be. Neither do flights or long bus journeys have to be marked by unpleasant, unhygienic odors (or worse still, by the smell of chemical masking agents that just cause more VOCs and allergic reactions). Modern technology has been developed to safely create fresh air, indoors. Tried and tested in space missions, the ultimate enclosed environment, it works to deliver fresh, clean, natural air. This is available now as an add-on to a standard ventilation system, with immediate results for you and your passengers.

The Problem Solved

Activtek’s revolutionary RCI technology stands out for its ability to attack gases and bacterial threats. It uses up to 5 natural processes to actively recreate fresh, outdoor air conditions in a safe, sustainable way. RCI has been proven to be more effective than chemical or filter solutions at reducing microorganism concentrations in the air & on surfaces. Unlike filters, it works proactively, using two types of ionization to reduce particles, UV light and a catalyst to create oxygen and hydrogen-based friendly oxidizers, reducing microbial contaminants and odors. No-one does it like Activtek does.

Continuous solutions with Activtek’s fixed or portable products

Every day Activtek is developing innovative solutions to the problems traditional filters don’t solve in the transportation sector. Special conditions, such as vibrations in buses, are taken into consideration by our technical teams.

The Activtek Induct range is built into existing ventilation ducting, is visually unobtrusive & needs minimum maintenance. For mobile sites and vehicles, Activtek Ductstations provide plug and play options adapted to the transport type.

The science: Independent tests show that Activtek is green and energy efficient and treated air is 99.999% free of harmful microorganisms, circulating as fresh air. We give only positive results without downtime for expensive chemical cleaning.

Case Studies
  • Intercity buses - Latin America

    Catherinse Buses

    Bus transportation operators in Brazil & Mexico have installed prototypes of customized Activtek ductstation solutions, specially designed to eliminate restroom odors and food preparation smells from the small kitchens on board. Two units are installed per bus and are built to be tamper proof and cope with vehicle transit vibrations.

    Results: Our partners in these tests are delighted with the results and improvement to the bus-riding experience for their customers. Activtek RCI plasma purifies the air during journeys.

  • Aeropuerto Internacional de la Ciudad de Mexico


    The busiest airport in Latin America (by aircraft movement) faced the typical odor and contaminant challenges of a large dynamic transport hub with 30 million passengers. The operators wished to counter odor issues in the old terminal, in particular in high contaminant restroom areas, and also foresee proactive purification measures in the public areas of the new terminal under construction. 185 x DuctStation Box units were installed in restrooms in the old terminal with a provision for over 500 x Induct 10000 or 5000 installations in air handling units (AHUs) in both new and old terminals.

    Results: Odors have been eliminated in restrooms with the proactive RCI technology, giving the user a better service. There has been reduction of particle dissemination in the public areas, improving air quality and comfort for international passengers and reducing the risks of contamination.
