Michael Pinto and Wonder Makers Environmental Release Part Two Study

Posted by Roger Sheppard on 12/14/15

Michael Pinto with Wonder Makers Environmental, Inc. has completed Part Two of the study regarding the safety of post-fire conditions for contractors, including the effect of the Odorox technology in these environments.  A real-world fire was simulated in a test chamber and  air samples were taken regularly for five days after the fire was extinguished. The samples were measured by a highly reputable third party lab to detect the type and quantity of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) present.  In the study, worst case conditions were created with the actual source materials left in the sealed room while the Odorox machine was running.  The total VOCs were reduced from 48,000 nanograms per liter (ng/L)  to 2,600 ng/L in just eight hours.  At the conclusion of the study, the room was completely fresh and even the smoke residue on the walls was visibly reduced.  The study confirms the science that is explained by Odorox , which includes the actual breakdown of more complex VOCs.  The study also includes some practical recommendations regarding personal protective equipment in difficult post-fire conditions.  The overall conclusion provides that the Odorox equipment makes working conditions safer for contractors by eliminating the odors and substantially reducing the harmful VOCs, even under these worst case conditions without source removal.

Odorox Hydroxyl Group Releases Studies for Aerosolized Biologicals

Posted by Roger Sheppard on 10/21/15

“This series of lab studies demonstrates our ongoing commitment to important third party scientific studies to further prove the efficacy of the Odorox technology.  These studies include a broad spectrum of biologicals, and are really impressive. The technology does far more than odor elimination and the possibilities for applications in many different markets are astounding. We will also continue to seek the input of experts in the Disaster Cleanup industry to find ways our technology should be further included in other cleaning protocols.”

Odorox & Wonder Makers Release Post-Fire Environments Study

Posted by Roger Sheppard on 10/7/15

In Part One of a two-part project, Wonder Makers Environmental, Inc. conducted an extensive review of existing literature regarding the air quality of post-fire environments and the potential risk to restoration contractors when working in such situations. This research paper answers important questions about the types and quantities of residual contaminants that may be present in structures at the time that restoration work is undertaken. Areas of review include evaluating the general safety of a fire-damaged structure during the various stages of restoration work, and determining if there is any consensus in the current body of knowledge regarding the recommended use of personal protective equipment (PPE) during the restoration and cleanup process.

The Cascade Effect of Hydroxyl Radicals Produced by Odorox® Systems

Posted by Tom McArdle on 1/22/14

This paper has been provided by Dr. Araps to further explain the “Cascade Effect” of Hydroxyl Radicals produced by the Odorox® systems. The series of chain reactions enables the treatment of not only the pathogens passing through the machine , but also the structures and contents in the treatment space outside of the machine.

Performance Comparison – Odorox® vs. Titan Machine

Posted by Roger Sheppard on 8/13/13

Independent performance testing was recently done by the Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute (LRRI) to compare the Odorox® Boss machine to the Titan machine sold by International Ozone Inc. LRRI has special expertise in the area of atmospheric and physical chemistry and their scientists are well published. They have studied hydroxyl radicals for years for the U.S. Government and others. They are most likely the only lab in the United States that is capable of these performance measurements and you will note the details provided with respect to their testing procedures.
