Removes Odors, Kills Bacteria, Reduces Mold and Airborne Pathogens.
For Occupied Spaces up to 1,500 Square Feet. Compact 2-Position Unit.

Product Overview:
A hydroxyl generator is an advanced air purifier that permanently removes odors and allergens by attacking bacteria, mold spores and airborne pathogens, also known as indoor air pollution. Unlike air purifiers that simply trap particles, the Hydra Elite uses PhotoCatalytic Oxidation (PCO) technology to breakdown and destroy airborne contamination including viruses.¹

For tougher jobs, the Hydra Elite combines the power of hydroxyls with ozone to thoroughly clean the air and surfaces in unoccupied spaces. When the optional ozone mode is turned off, the Hydra Elite functions as a true hydroxyl generator that is safe to use in occupied areas. A countdown timer is included to run the Hydra Elite for specified cycles.

Hydroxyl technology is safe for deodorizing and disinfecting the air in college dorm rooms, apartments, offices, daycare centers, gyms, fitness centers, locker rooms, hotels and motels, vehicles , RVs, clinics, nursing homes, funeral homes and many other areas without affecting daily routines.

Ozone technology disinfects both air and surfaces but requires an area to be vacant during a treatment and for at least 30 minutes afterwards. The advantage of ozone is that it saturates surfaces then quickly decomposes into normal air without leaving a residue like most other cleaners.

The Elite includes a pre-filter and carbon post-filter, replaceable UVC 254nm germicidal (no ozone) lamp, self-cleaning catalyst and a quiet but powerful centrifugal blower fan. The discharge end has a stainless steel louvered plate to block harmful UVC germicidal light. Inside the device, the UV wavelength excites nano-sized particles of Titanium Dioxide that generate hydroxyls. The unit's germicidal light also sterilizes air inside the unit. The Elite can set horizontal or vertical so that it can fit in as little as a 6-inch space.

PCO hydroxyl generation, originally developed by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to purify air onboard a space station, is ozone-free and safe to use indoors for continuous operation. Photocatalytic Oxidation is FDA-approved for use in Class II medical devices such as air purifiers, N95 respirators and infusion pumps.

About Hydroxyl Technology:
Hydroxyls are omnipresent in nature, forming when UV light from the sun splits apart water molecules in the air. The resulting hydroxyl radicals (and super-oxide ions) instantly oxidize thousands of outdoor pollutants. Hydroxyls are nature's primary method of cleaning contaminants from the atmosphere using only sunlight and water vapor. Hydroxyls also kill germs in outdoor air, making it harder for viruses to survive and spread outdoors. The Elite uses UV light and a catalyst to mimic the reactions that generate hydroxyls, to cleanse indoor air.

Inside the Elite's aluminum-shielded reaction chamber, inorganic and biological contaminates are destroyed on contact with the catalyst surface, including the most resistant strains of bacteria that can survive long periods of exposure to both UV light and household cleaners. In addition, hydroxyls break down odors trapped in the air from mold, formaldehyde, smoke, sewer gas and many other contaminants, reducing them down to carbon dioxide and water. The unit's germicidal light also sterilizes its chamber to keep it germ-free.

The Elite utilizes the latest PCO technology including shielded ultraviolet germicidal lamps rated for 8,000-hours, a dual ball bearing, long-life centrifugal fan and BoiE's unique 360-Surround permanent nano-anatase TiO2 reactor grid to produce the highest levels of hydroxyls possible without restricting airflow.

About Ozone Technology:
Ozone is the second most powerful oxidant in the world, saturates hard-to-reach spaces and leaves no chemical residue. Ozone contains three atoms of oxygen rather than the two in normal air. This extra oxygen atom will quickly combine with or "oxidize" harmful compounds, causing them to break down. The presence of ozone increases hydroxyl production but also requires the area to be unoccupied during the treatment. Ozone generators are run in cycles, not continuously.

Bottom Line:
The Hydra Elite is great for cleaning occupied spaces by running the unit continuously in default mode. Using the optional ozone boost allows a more thorough cleaning when an area can be left unoccupied. The Hydra Elite won't damage plants or sensitive materials. The Hydra Elite's compact form factor allows it fit on small tables and shelves. It reduces the spread of mold spores.

Like all BoiE products, the Hydra Elite was designed by indoor air professionals to outlasts and outperform the rest.
