Fresh-Aire UV introduces APCO-X for IAQ in HVAC systems

Buildings HVAC IAQ UV

The enhanced product is an upgrade to the original APCO line offering longer UV lamp life, better performance and increased VOC adsorption capabilities.

Fresh-Aire UV, manufacturer of indoor air quality (IAQ) products, has added the APCO-X to its APCO product line of combination ultraviolet (UV) technology and activated carbon media catalyst air treatment for HVAC systems.

The APCO-X is UL 2998-validated as zero-ozone producing and it offers many enhancements to the product line including a longer (three-year) UV lamp lifecycle for airstream, evaporator coil, drain pan and interior air handling unit (AHU) disinfection.

APCO-X also features a redesigned V-Twin Cell Matrix incorporating lifetime ceramic cells infused with Fresh-Aire UV’s new proprietary Carbon Catalyst for enhanced IAQ performance and a 65% increase in adsorption surface area compared to the original APCO system.

The substrate’s catalyst agent treatment also prevents potential microbial growth.

Other improvements include a multi-directional polycarbonate housing and an LED status display for operational status and notifications.

APCO-X is a direct drop-in replacement for original APCO owners who want to upgrade to longer UV lamp life, better performance and increased VOC adsorption capabilities.

APCO-X is available as a plenum installation with a second remote three-year lamp for additional coil disinfection. Voltage options include 24 to 32V low voltage or a 110 to 277V line voltage with automatic voltage selection to match building services.
