Clean Stream Technologies has introduced the new EnviroKlenz Air System Plus to Australia and New Zealand following the success of hygiene-sensitive products it produces locally. This article first appeared in the December 2021 issue of Food and Drink Business.

The system combines ultraviolet UVC germicidal irradiation with safe and effective earth mineral technology. 

The latest German-made and US patented technology, with UV bulbs and internal cleaning system, provides a proven safe and effective technology to capture and neutralise airborne toxins and noxious gases, particulates, allergens, bacteria, viruses, and other allergy triggers. 

EnviroKlenz has been tested and validated by Intertek Labs to achieve a 99.9 neutralisation rate of viruses down to 0.025 microns for a broad spectrum of viruses. It is also 99.9 per cent effective in neutralisation of gram-negative bacteria (E. coli) and 99.9 per cent effective against gram-positive bacteria (Staphylococcus epidermidis). 

Clean Stream Technologies general manager Scott Whittaker said: “Sometimes the issue is excluding potential carriers of risk factors such as contagious conditions; sometimes the issue is to exclude the risk factors such as vehicle pollution, bushfire smoke and widespread allergens including pollen.”

Each EnviroKlenz Air System Plus unit is effective over individual areas up to 93 square metres. The quiet units (54-64 dB) can be used in multiple installations to address clean air challenges.
