The Science Speaks for Itself

How the Odorox® technology stacks up against PCO technology

The patented technology used in the Odorox®  machines is very different than what other companies use.

How the research and science stack up

According to research conducted by the Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute (LRRI):

  • Under highly controlled conditions, there was no evidence that the Titan 4000 was producing hydroxyls using published analytics methods capable of measuring hydroxyl concentrations as low as 5-10 ppb. The Titan is unable to produce any measurable quantity of hydroxyls and was unable to make any reduction to either of the test VOCs in the air. 
  • Under the same highly controlled conditions, the Boss™ system generated hydroxyl radicals which rapidly reacted with n-heptane producing a measurable reduction in the n-heptane concentration consistent with a hydroxyl formation rate in the hundreds of ppb.
  • The average concentration of hydroxyls distributed within the test chamber produced by the Boss™ system was consistent with that found in nature, which effectively decomposes a vast number of organic and inorganic compounds as well as kill bacteria, viruses, and mold. 

Summary

After extensive testing of the Titan 4000, LRRI detected no measurement of hydroxyls at all, and concluded that if the Titan was producing any hydroxyls, they were too few to be measured. This research confirms the observations of contractors in the field who are unable to remove odors from surfaces and contents with this product. It is very important for the restoration industry and insurance professionals to understand the significant differences in these technologies.
