What is Citra Comprehensive Multi-Layered Disinfection Methodology?

Our Level One Air Disinfection Solutions address the general HVAC system throughout a facility. Our Level Two Air Disinfection Solutions address early air treatment at the room level. Similarly, our Level One Surface Disinfection solutions address whole room disinfection while Level Two Surface Disinfection Solutions is to treat specific surfaces within a room.

Our clients can choose to implement all levels of Air and Surface disinfections, a few, or just one treatment. We will work with you to engineer a solution and provide you with the maximum benefits, based on your operation and your facility’s condition.

Citra Clean Program

This program provides a way for the facility owner to earn recognition and show their customers and/or employees what they are doing to protect them. The facility owner would receive window decals, displa poster or plaque, and digital material to announce what they have done to create a safer environment for their customers and employees.

Level One Air Solutions

These solutions address the overall air quality in a facility via the HVAC system. Facilities will have a variety of HVAC systems ranging from large Air Handling Units (AHU), Roof Top Units (RTU), Packaged Terminal Air Conditioning Units (PTAC), and others. All of these units can be fitted with UVC lamps near the coil and in some cases in the duct work. The
UVC racking system is designed to take into account air volume, mounting distance from coil, and air velocity. This determines the number of lamps needed to design to a 99.9% reduction in pathogen levels. There are multiple benefits of doing this. 1. The UVC lamps will be operated 24/7 and thus will continuously keep the coil clean. By cleaning the coil, the
heat exchange efficiency is increased greatly and the air pressure will be decreased noticeable thus savings energy and money. 2. The UVC lamps are eradicating the pathogens in the air stream and thus delivering clean disinfected air back into the rooms. The following are two examples of Level One Air Solutions.

Level Two Air Solutions

There are additional measures which can help augment the primary HVAC UV-C disinfection for improvement in overall air quality and further decrease chances of infection. These solutions can be used as the primary air disinfection system in some cases or as a supplement to the primary HVAC UV-C in areas of higher concentration of people.

Upper Air Unit

The primary objective of upper-air UVC placement and use is to interrupt the transmission of airborne infectious pathogens within the indoor environment. Various upper-air UVC devices are designed to generate a controlled UVC field
above the heads of occupants and to minimize UVC in the lower occupied area of the room. Spaces that are appropriate for upper-air UVC placement include congregate spaces where unknown and potentially infected persons may share the same space with uninfected persons.

UV Room Air Sanitizers

Our commercial / Industrial grade room level air sanitizers come in a variety of form factors and performance levels. These units are being manufactured in different types that can be wall mounted, ceiling mounted, or simply sit on a table or floor. All of the units we represent incorporate powerful UV light to disinfect moving air in seconds. Some of these units incorporate additional filtration mediums in addition to the UV. Our design methodology for maximum pathogen reduction utilizes many of these units as a supplement to the main HVAC system’s UV. In rooms with higher occupancy it is important to capture the aerosols which are constantly being released by people from breathing, talking, coughing, and sneezing. Any type of physical exertion such as in gyms, yoga studios, etc. further increases the aerosol levels in the air and require higher cfm and air turns.

Level One Surface Solutions

UVC for surface disinfection, particularly in health care settings, has been applied to reduce the number of microorganisms on surfaces. Surfaces can be irradiated with fixed or portable in-room UVC fixtures that serve as part of the room’s disinfection methodology. Application of UVC to any surface is based on the UV dose delivered to the surface. The dose (μJ/cm2) of UVC needed to disinfect a surface depends on the selected target and desired disinfection level. Different microorganisms require various levels of UVC
energy for to be killed or dis-activated.

UVC irradiates all line-of-sight objects and into shadowed areas (e.g., tables, chairs, surgical equipment, objects) through reflection, so the desired level of disinfection can be achieved, even on surfaces which are not directly irradiated. UVC surface disinfection should only be applied as an adjunct to normal surface cleaning procedures of the facility. No living organisms, including animals and plants, should be in the room when UVC is used.

The germicidal performance of UVC devices are depending on the device’s power output, distance between the unit to each surface, and irradiation time. A device with higher UVC irradiation power (μ W/cm2) will generate more UVC energy (μJ/cm2) on a given surface, within a specific time frame. Therefore, the duration of UVC irradiation that requires to kill or dis activate germs depend on the dose (μJ/cm2) delivered to a surface. Room size and space function are critical measures in selecting any stationary or portable UVC germicidal device.

Level One Surface Solutions Examples

Level Two Surface Solutions

Facilities must address the fact that traffic throughout the day will contaminate various surfaces throughout the facility. The ability to quickly spot treat is critical in a comprehensive disinfectant methodology. There are two primary tools depending on the application: 1. Electrostatic Sprayers or 2. UVC Wands. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. The sprayer is fast and being electrostatic, a quick one pass on one side of an object also coats the backside. The object will be wet from the disinfectant. The UVC wand takes only a few seconds to disinfect from a few inches from the surface being treated. The surface of the UVC wand must be in direct sight of the object being disinfected and care must be taken not to point the light source at passersby and on your skin and eyes. The advantage is no residue.

Comprehensive Multilayered Disinfectant Methodology
Citra Certified

Pathogens are everywhere, on surfaces, in the air, and within HVAC equipment. Transference of pathogens also takes place from the same mediums. Our treatment methodology attacks pathogens at each front to minimize the risk of contracting infections for your employees, members, and guests. Let our team help you win the war on pathogens.
