Hydroxyl Generators - Product Overview
The Best Hydroxyl Generators to Purify and Deodorize
BoiE is a leading
manufacturer of hydroxyl generators for home and commercial use. Hydroxyl generators are a popular alternative
to ozone generators for mold, water and fire damage restoration projects because hydroxyls can oxidize contaminants
and purify indoor air without the negative side-effects of ozone. The main benefit of a hydroxyl generator is that
hydroxyls neutralize thousands of chemical and microbiological contaminants in the air, but do not harm people,
plants, pets or sensitive materials. Contaminants exposed to hydroxyls are broken down into harmless carbon dioxide
Technically-speaking, a hydroxyl generator produces a reactive oxygen species (ROS). These include peroxides, superoxide
and hydroxyl radicals -- all are very reactive and break down contamination instantly and completely. Hydroxyl
production occurs naturally outdoors using sunlight and water vapor. After a forest fire, it is hydroxyls that
clean the air. Hydroxyls are often referred to as “nature's broom” because of the important role they play in purifying
outdoor air. However, hydroxyls do not occur naturally indoors, and window glass prevents hydroxyl formation from
sunlight. The solution for indoor environments is to use a BoiE hydroxyl generator.
BoiE hydroxyl generators can safely eliminate fungal spores, viral cells, bacteria and dangerous biological agents
in milliseconds. In fact, following the Amerithrax attacks in 2001, the federal government invested billions on
biodefenses. One countermeasure included the use of hydroxyls to safely neutralize weaponized anthrax.¹ Methods
to generate hydroxyls vary, and certain types of hydroxyl generators can run continuously in occupied areas. Unlike
ozone, hydroxyls are odorless and require no wait time to reoccupy a treated area.
BoiE hydroxyl generators use Photocatalytic Oxidation Technology (PCO) and Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOP) to
produce hydroxyls. PCO technology, originally developed in 1994 by NASA to purify air onboard a spacecraft,²
is the only hydroxyl generation method that is always safe to use around people. Safe-to-view, UV-A black light
or shielded UV-C germicidal light shines on a nano-catalyst where massive numbers of hydroxyls form whenever there
is water vapor in the air. Contaminants that come in contact with the light-activated catalyst are instantly oxidized.
The UV-C wavelength has the added effect of sterilizing airborne germs, viruses and bacteria that pass close to
the light source.
AOP technology, originally developed for water purification, works in tandem with PCO technology, using UV-C light
to break down low-concentration hydrogen peroxide vapor (HPV), low-concentration UV ozone or a combination of both,
to generate hydroxyls directly into the air. Contaminants are oxidized both in the air stream and on the catalyst
surface, which can increase the unit's efficacy, increase the overall coverage area or shorten the cleaning cycle.
AOP mode requires an unoccupied area or close monitoring and worker protection to ensure that HPV and/or ozone
do not build up to unsafe levels during the treatment cycle before they naturally revert to harmless water and
Both PCO and AOP technology for hydroxyl generation have advantages and disadvantages. However, both technologies
are safer than concentrated ozone and can be more effective in certain situations. Hydroxyl generators are highly-effective
after a flood or a fire, and do not harm plants and sensitive materials. Hydroxyl generators do not create strong
odors like ozone or require wait times after a treatment.

Highlights of BoiE Hydroxyl Generators:
- Portability: Compact, rugged cases with carry handles, designed for transporting and storing. No permanently-attached
cords or permanent flanges. Easy to take apart, change filters and clean.
- Safe Mode: All units can operate in PCO Mode only, allowing units to be left running continuously in
occupied areas without ventilation.
- More Cleaning Power: Unique 360-Surround permanent nano-anatase TiO2 reactor grid maximizes the hydroxyl
reactive surface area without restricting airflow, and is easy to replace.
- Quality Optics: Machines use safe and cool-operating true 368nm anatase titanium dioxide (TiO2)-coated
optics or 253-nm UV-C (germicidal) optics depending on application, that are energy-efficient, last thousands of
hours and are simple to change.
- Hydroxyl Accelerator: BoiE's ultrasonic water vapor optional accessory adds moisture in low humidity
conditions to increase hydroxyl reactions and works will all models.
- GFCI Protection: Integrated into the wiring through an accessory outlet for electrical safety in wet
- Warranty: Unlimited 1-year warranty and lifetime customer support, plus unlimited warranty extensions
for an annual maintenance fee.
