04/12/2021 Newark Public Schools to Install 4,500+ Odorox Air and Surface Sanitation Systems to Help Students and Faculty Return to the Classroom Safely

Newark Public Schools officially welcomed back students and staff to begin in-person learning for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic struck in March of 2020. To do this, Newark's Board of Education— which represents the largest school district in N.J.— implemented a comprehensive plan to reopen schools, including strict COVID-19 protocols and sanitation procedures and a renewed focus on air quality and surface hygiene. To ensure this, Newark tapped Bio-Shine Inc., and installed more than 4,500 Odorox air purifiers, powered by PYURE Technology, in PK-12 classrooms, offices and other high-traffic areas throughout the district.

12/24/2020 Aerosol and Surface Stability of SARS-CoV-2 as Compared with SARS-CoV-1 | NEJM

Scientists studied the plausible transmission of SAR-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, through aerosol and fomites on various surface types in an aerosolized environment. The results found that the virus can exist in aerosols for hours and surfaces for days…

12/14/2020 An airborne pathogen requires an air sanitization solution

Dr. Fauci explains to Matthew McConaughey (Now This) that transmission by touching inanimate surfaces is now considered to be a very small percentage of COVID-19 cases (see first 90 seconds in the video), yet most “solutions” in the market to-date only address surface sanitization. PYURE is one of the only technologies to have demonstrated the rapid destruction of airborne SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19), killing 99% of a very high concentration of the aerosolized COVID-19 virus in only 20 minutes.

12/03/2020 A Room, A Bar and A Classroom: How the Coronavirus is Spread Through the Air

The risk of contagion is highest in indoor spaces but can be reduced by applying all available measures to combat infection via aerosols. Here is an overview of the likelihood of infection in three everyday scenarios, based on the safety measures used and the length of exposure.

12/02/2020 COVID-19 Transmission – Up in the Air

As we approach the end of 2020, and a year since the outbreak of COVID-19 began, cases are increasing again. We have learnt a lot about SARS-CoV-2 and our ability to test for and mange COVID-19 has improved, but ongoing debate remains about how SATS-CoV-2 is transmitted.

12/02/2020 It Is Time to Address Airborne Transmission of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

An open letter to the World Health Organization from 239 scientific experts.
We appeal to the medical community and to the relevant national and inter- national bodies to recognize the potential for airborne spread of coronavirus dis- ease 2019 (COVID-19).

12/01/2020 Purifier Kills 99% of Airborne SARS-CoV-2 in 20 Minutes and Virus is No Longer Detected in Air After 80 Minutes; Purifier Kills 99% of SARS-CoV-2 on Surfaces in 1 Hour and Virus is No Longer Detected on Surfaces After 3 Hours.

The PYURE Company announced that a recently completed study conducted by a certified, biosafety level 3 laboratory demonstrated that a portable commercial air purifier rapidly and dramatically destroys SARS Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the virus that causes COVID-19, both in the air and on surfaces.

11/18/2020 The Coronavirus Is Airborne Indoors. Why Are We Still Scrubbing Surfaces?

Scientists who initially warned about contaminated surfaces now say that the virus spreads primarily through inhaled droplets and that there is little to no evidence that deep cleaning mitigates the threat indoors...

07/30/2020 HGI Industries Inc Has Changed its Name to The PYURE Company.

HGI Industries Inc. announced today that it has changed its name to The PYURE Company (“PYURE”). PYURE will continue to market its Odorox® line of products, which it has been selling for over 15 years.

FEATURED IN HEALTH AND SAFETY
We've talked about cooties before, Life-Saver. Nothing is scarier than some of the stuff you can't even see.
Fortunately, our bodies came equipped with an incredible array of weapons to protect us from sick people's diseases.

I can't find any studies that say so, but I don't think EMS providers get sick as often as most other people. If that's true, I suspect it's because we're exposed to so much disease on a regular basis that we're somewhat immune to it. I've always been impressed by that (and have always been grateful for it.) But I still think we'd be a lot safer if somebody could devise a surefire way to sanitize an ambulance without taking it apart.
In the March 2005 installment of this column, I discussed numerous ways EMS providers could minimize their exposure to disease. I suggested everything from leaving their boots at work to routinely cleaning door handles, stretchers, ceiling hardware and radio mics with contact cleaner. I've also talked about such practices as hand-washing, ditching exam gloves before driving, removing the floor hardware to address substances that accumulate there and not eating in ambulances.
I do brag some about my agency's crews. I hope you understand I love 'em to death. If you ever come and ride with us, you'll see why in about a second. Not only are they fine caregivers, but they also have hearts the size of toasters. If we were to lose just one of them, all of EMS would be damaged. Their families expect us to keep them safe, and we try hard to do that.
One of our first responders is an EMT named Chris Forbes. Chris is a lieutenant with our fire department here in Brighton, Colo., and he's a part-time distributor of gizmos called hydroxyl generators. Hydroxyl ions are unstable, negatively charged molecules that oxidize single-celled organisms, and thereby, destroy them. Chris showed us a device the size of a briefcase that's designed to produce and circulate hydroxyls throughout a closed environment about the size of a small house (2,000 square feet). We bought it (for about $2,800). When we take an ambulance out of service for maintenance, and before we give it back to a crew, we plug the device into the unit's 110VAC shoreline circuit and run it in the patient compartment for 24 hours with all the doors and windows closed.

We're pretty small-time, and we serve a poor district, so we don't have a lot of money for science. We've found no reference to anybody using hydroxyl generators in ambulances. But the independent lab reports we've read say that in structures, this device destroys more than 99.9% of airborne, surface and contained anthrax, Clostridium difficile, Escherichia coli, influenza A, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Listeria monocytogenes, MRSA, Staph aureus, molds and their spores, and tuberculosis bacilli on stainless steel and cotton fabric surfaces during a single 12-hour exposure.(1Ð3)
We also know from experience that it eliminates biologic and non-biologic odorsÑincluding emesis, blood, smoke and ethanolÑand produces no odors of its own.
They're commonly installed in the heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems of public buildings, especially in humid areas, and they're routinely used to purify structures after flooding. Fire departments use them to sanitize turnout gear.
How do these things work? Ours contains a fan that draws .dirty. air through a multiple-wavelength ultraviolet chamber, then exhausts it as clean airÑalong with hydroxyl ionsÑback into the environment. Hydroxyls occur naturally in sunlight. Although they're deadly to one-celled organisms, they're harmless to people and animals. Likewise, tests prove they break down airborne aldehydes, ozone, carbon monoxide and volatile organic compounds.(4)
According to Chris, you can actually get these things in much smaller sizes, designed for permanent mounting in an ambulance, for about $500. That would spread the cost of one over the span of a lease, or the life of a vehicle. JEMS - Journal of Emergency Medical Services

Major Canadian Insurance Adjuster takes notice of Hydroxyl Benefits

Recently I've had the chance to see the hydroxyl machines in action in two claims that we worked on together and I have to tell you how impressed I am that these machines actually do what they claim.

First there was the liability claim at the 15,000 square foot office building in Cambridge that was under construction. Our insured was doing some work in the building and accidentally started a small fire. Smoke went throughout the building and since the drywall was all new it had not been sealed or painted yet. Although there was very little soot deposit, odour was the bigger problem. We were faced with the real possibility of having to replace the drywall at a cost well over $150,000. Even to Kilz paint it would have been in excessive of $80,000. There was also an exposure related to income loss if there were delays in the completion of the building.

The hydroxyl machines that you recommended and used on this claim did an amazing job of removing the entire smoke odour to everyone's satisfaction and in a mere seven days and at a cost of under $30,000! The construction workers were even able to continue to work while the machines were running.

The second claim involved a diner inside a local bus terminal. There was a small electrical fire in the storage room. The sprinklers put the fire out but smoke went throughout the storage and kitchen areas. Again odour was the bigger problem once the water clean-up was done. PDS put in a hydroxyl machine for two days to eliminate the smoke odour. A few weeks later I met with our insured who commented that not only did the smoke odour disappear but so had the odour of the grease. He was very pleased with our claims service and PDS.

I certainly will be asking other contractors to use this equipment in other claims involving odours. I'm confident that it works really well and the potential for saving money is huge.
