Healthy animals are a result of good hygiene and disinfection practices. Since many animal infections are airborne, animal handlers wonder what more can be done to provide healthier environments. They can lessen the risk of infection through healthy air with a fast, low-maintenance ultraviolet air sanitization system. The SANITAIRE® Ultraviolet Air Sanitizer is automatic, safe, rapid, and chemical-free.
High population density and poor ventilation often fuel animal infections. Microbes spread rapidly. They are carried on air particles and shedding animal dander. Animals and employees can be infected quickly, even before the first signs of illness appear. Substantial animal and economic loss can be suffered within a matter of hours if pathogens are not stopped immediately.
Ultraviolet Air Sanitization on the Farm and Animal Processing Facilities
UV sanitized air, as a part of good animal husbandry practices, keeps livestock and farmhands safe. Cattle, sheep, goats, horses, donkeys, chickens, and pigs have the potential to rapidly spread deadly illnesses. Ultraviolet air sanitization can prove lethal to the following airborne pathogens found in farm and animal processing facilities:
- Avian Flu
- Many Additional Infectious Diseases
Domesticated Animal Infections Prevented with UV Air Sanitization
Common respiratory infections in domesticated dogs, cats, rabbits, reptiles, and birds can be prevented with UV air sanitization. Most contagious illnesses seen by veterinary offices, animal shelters, and pet shops, can also be avoided with UV air sanitization—even kennel cough.
As the leading manufacturer of ultraviolet sanitization systems, we know what makes them easy to install, use, and maintain.
- The SANITAIRE® operates continuously with little oversight.
- No special training is required for maintenance or installation—no special staff is needed.
- There are no chemicals involved, which means no dosage issues or risk of mishandling.
- Uses STER-L-RAY ® Germicidal Ultraviolet Lamps in the C wavelength (UV-C) which destroy a variety of airborne bacteria, virus, and mold microbes.
- Lamps require a change only about once a year.
- Surelite™ state-of-the-art Electronic Ballasts are instant start and use less energy than magnetic ballasts.
Key integrated features make it safe for use in densely occupied spaces with no risk of over-exposure to humans or animals. Lamps are housed in a completely enclosed chamber. A louvered panel keeps UV radiation inside the chamber while air flows out into the room. The ArmorLite™ Safety Shield is an optional protective coating applied to STER-L-RAY ® Germicidal Ultraviolet Lamps. This coating eliminates danger of mercury contamination to staff and animals if a lamp is accidentally broken. 3 models and multiple configurations provide versatility.
Made in the USA of type 304 stainless steel, the UV air sanitizers from Atlantic Ultraviolet Corporation® are constructed of the highest quality materials and use germicidal ultraviolet lamps to purify air. The SANITAIRE® Ultraviolet Air Sanitizer has many optional accessories available, making it a flexible ultraviolet air sanitizing system for any application.
