Wellisair is a very versatile product that allows air and surfaces in all sectors to be purified and disinfected. Given the larger fields of action of this technology, four major applications can be defined:
Wellisair technology has been tested on several viruses with different characteristics (morphology, involvement, etc.) and with different environments (wet and dry).
Some of the best known are: Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), Rotavirus or Coxsackievirus (hand-mouth-foot).
Wellisair's efficacy results in viruses without envelope indicate that in wet conditions the efficacy is less than in dry environments, while in viruses with envelope, the humidity favors the advanced oxidation process and virus elimination than in dry environments. In all tests, the results obtained are around 90-99% elimination, making Wellisair ideal for viral disinfection of air and surfaces.

This feature makes the product optimal for hospitals, laboratories, analysis clinics, veterinarians or beauty centres. In other words, mainly for the health sector, microorganism research centres and animal health.
Another important group of pathogenic microorganisms are bacteria, which have caused serious diseases throughout history.
Wellisair has been tested against several of the main bacteria, both Gram “+” and Gram “-”, such as Bacillus subtilis (resistant to extreme temperature and radiation conditions), Staphylococcus aureus (resistant to disinfectants such as chlorine) or Salmonella (resistant to various antibiotics).
In these tests, the results were 99.7% elimination of the bacteria on average within a few hours of exposure.

The elimination of bacteria and viruses are a perfect application to avoid contagion between people or animals, so its use in rooms in the health sector, animal centres, schools, means of transport or locations with a high concentration of people will be highly beneficial.
Apart from microorganisms, there are other types of compounds that are found in the air and can cause serious pathologies and / or be allergens for a large part of the population. Wellisair allows, through a series of reactions, to oxidize VOCs and PM into harmless compounds.
To corroborate it, several tests were carried out against formaldehydes (VOC) and PM1, PM2.5 and PM10 particles, seeing their almost total disappearance after half an hour of exposure.

Thanks to this characteristic, Wellisair is ideal to be installed in food industries, food storage, laboratories or means of transport, places where such compounds or atmospheric particles can be generated.
A part of the VOCs are formaldehydes, ammonia and toluenes, responsible for the odour when going from a liquid (or solid) state to a gas.
Since it is very important that there is a toxin-free, pleasant and odourless environment in public places (administration, gyms, etc.), vets, farms, means of transport or offices, Wellisair has been tested against these compounds, obtaining results 80-99% reduction within a few hours of exposure to the advanced oxidative reaction.

It should be noted that the application sectors of the Wellisair unit are common to all applications. Although there is a clearer application for certain sectors, in all it is ideal to benefit from the four applications of the device.
