Fresh-Aire UV Introduces APCO-X to APCO Air Treatment Product Line for HVAC Systems
August 29, 2019
Fresh-Aire UV, a leading 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 continues the performance tradition of the original APCO, which won the AHR Innovation Award's IAQ category in 2011 and is currently the HVAC industry's most advanced combination UV/activated carbon media air treatment system. It's UL 2998-validated as zero-ozone producing. APCO-X offers many enhancements including a longer (three-year) UV lamp lifecycle for cutting-edge, 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 percent increase in adsorption surface area compared to the original APCO system. The substrate's catalyst agent treatment also prevents potential microbial growth. Like the original APCO system, APCO-X comes with a lifetime warranty.
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.
Other APCO-X features include:
Newly designed ballast and UVC lamp configuration
Lifetime warranty and three-year UV lamp life
Rotatable polycarbonate housing with thumbscrews
Consumer oriented packaging helps contractors educate consumers about the benefits of UV disinfection and VOC elimination
The APCO-X will be available at most HVAC wholesale distributors in the second quarter of 2019.
