BENEFITS OF FIELD CONTROLS PCO TECHNOLOGY
- Patented technology is the most effective on the market
- Improves air quality by targeting VOCs
- Improves customer comfort by reducing odors
Photocatalytic Oxidation (PCO) technology utilizes a combination of UV-C light and a specific catalyst. In Field Controls PRO-Cell (PCO) products we utilize titanium dioxide as the catalyst. When the titanium dioxide is exposed to our powerful ultraviolet light (UV-C) lamps, it creates a reaction which converts the odors, VOCs and more to odorless and harmless water vapor and carbon dioxide.
During the chemical reaction, the titanium dioxide absorbs the UVC light and becomes energized. This energy enables the titanium dioxide to interact with both oxygen and moisture in the air. As a result of this interaction, highly reactive oxygen compounds, hydroxyl radicals and superoxide ions, are created. These compounds are oxidizers which attack and break down the VOCs and pollutants in the air.
