Filter Functionalities vs Hydroxyls
Clients often ask how other types of filters and purification technologies compare to the Hygensea Hydroxyl technology. For quick reference:
How Hygensea works:
The safe technology works on the molecular level by producing Hydroxyls to duplicate and amplify Nature’s process for cleaning and purifying our atmosphere. The solution proactively and continuously removes viruses, bacteria, mold, odors, and fumes on surfaces and in the air using a patented and proven technology. Hygensea ODOROX® leaves no chemical residue and easily integrates or inserts into new or existing HVAC systems with no impact to air flow. It is customizable for any size vessel and offers the only proven technology for creating fresh air for the interior with continuous cleaning, sanitation, and automatic monitoring to ensure optimal cleaning levels.
Hygensea ODOROX® is a game-changer:
- Destroys pathogens, viruses, and bacteria on surfaces and in the air
- Proactively eliminates odors from fumes, VOCs, black/gray water etc.
- Kills all types of mold (no more chasing the right cleaning agent)
- Purifies the air inside for noticeably improved air quality and comfort
- Increases the lifespan of fresh produce in galleys and kitchens
- Installs easily and runs continuously at low service and replacement costs
- Proven across medical, industrial, commercial and maritime industries
- Easily measured results
- Saves significant fuel by allowing recalibrated circulation
Hygensea Odorox ® is the most advanced solution for purifying the air as proven by many onboard installations. It is unmatched in its ability to find and kill all viruses and bacteria whether in the air or on any surface – with excellent ROI.
 While HEPA filters are 99.9% effective at removing particles larger than 300nm and can capture some smaller particles and viral saturated droplets at lower efficiencies, free floating airborne viruses, like the SARS-CoV2 Coronavirus, measure only ~125nm in diameter, and can penetrate a HEPA filter, linger in the air as an aerosol, or bypass a HEPA filter's media as can smoke, mold toxins and odors.
 Hygensea destroys contaminants at the molecular level (not just blocked in a filter).
 Ionizers clump contaminants, causing them to bind to heavier particles and drop from the air stream. However, this does not reduce their dangers. They are not eliminated by Ionizers.
Importantly, air filtration also does not address the fact that many contaminants are out of reach of cleaning crews whether on surfaces or in the air.
On the other hand, Hygensea’s flow-neutral hydroxyl generators complement physical filters and the ongoing and commendable efforts of cleaning and decontamination crews. It enhances their efforts by ensuring 99.999% rapid elimination of all pathogens, including those suspended in the air and hiding on any hard-to-reach surfaces such as corners, gaps and even fabrics.
This patented ozone-free technology is effective, economical, worker friendly and environmentally safe, with outstanding ROI.
