How is the Odorox® technology different than other systems on the market?

  • Odorox® eliminates odors not only in the air, but more importantly, the odors that have been absorbed deep inside the contents and structures. As a gas, hydroxyls will follow the same paths that the odors did and reach all hidden and hard to reach areas.
  • The oxidants produced are not damaging to anything so you can easily treat sensitive materials like leather, rubber, electronics, plastic, artwork, wet items, etc.
  • It’s simple to use. Just plug in the machine and turn it on. That’s it. No chemicals, no filters, no oils, no masking agents, no fogging, no spraying, etc. No additional humidification required. Yes, it’s really that simple.
  • Hydroxyls are extremely reactive and are the second strongest oxidant in the world behind atomic fluorine – far more effective than any other odor solution on the market. This means they will eliminate more odors and VOCs than ozone, chlorine dioxide, foggers, masking agents, oils, and all other chemicals.
  • There are no residual odors left behind and odors will never “come back”. Once they are eliminated, it is permanent.

What is a hydroxyl?

Hydroxyls (OH) are molecules consisting of one oxygen atom and one hydrogen atom. They are safe, naturally occurring molecules that are created in our atmosphere when the sun’s ultraviolet rays react with water vapor. They play a critical role in cleaning the earth’s atmosphere and are often referred to as the “detergent” of the atmosphere. They can be used to kill bacteria, viruses, and mold, and to break down volatile organic compounds (VOCs), chemical fumes, gasses, vapors, and unpleasant odors. They are more effective than ozone, chemicals, ionizers, foggers, filters, masking agents, and oils. When used as instructed, they do not harm people, pets, plants, or sensitive materials like rubber, plastic, leather, electronics, wet items, or artwork.

How does the Odorox® equipment produce hydroxyls?

Through the use of patented ultraviolet (UV) technology, Odorox® replicates the natural production of hydroxyls to completely eliminate biological and chemical contaminants. Ambient air is drawn through the irradiation chamber of the machine where finely tuned UV optics break apart humidity (H2O) to form hydroxyls. Nothing additional is needed for the technology to operate - no chemicals, no filters, no supplemental humidifiers, etc.

Is the Odorox® equipment easy to use?

Yes. Simply plug it into a standard 110 - 120 volt power supply, turn it on, and let it run. Most units draw less than 2 amps of power and require very little maintenance. The machines are durable, portable, and lightweight.

How large of an area will one machine cover?

The coverage area will vary by unit and application. See Products to view our various models and contact us for questions related to your specific application. Also, you may contact us to explain your application and we can help recommend the correct model

What is the warranty?

All Odorox® machines come with a one year manufacturer’s warranty that covers parts and labor.
