Clean air from EnviroKlenz® Air System Plus can be a staff health and customer satisfaction asset at the same time

Lab-tested EnviroKlenz® airborne virus removal neutralises multiple health and duty of care risks

A laboratory-validated air filtration system is being introduced to Australasia to help building and business owners, managers, specifiers, designers and fitout specialists fulfil duty of care and OH&S obligations to protect workers and visitors against the spread of viral and other airborne health hazards within interior spaces.

The EnviroKlenz® Air System Plus from Clean Stream Technologies – which kills virus’ multiple times smaller than the Covid-19 virus – is already proven in service in US health and major hospitality environments responding to the Coronavirus pandemic and to other airborne health challenges, including different virus’, bacteria, pathogens, pollution, and seasonal allergens that affect millions in both countries.

“This quality, German manufactured system is engineered as a major step up from mass market air purifiers,” says Scott Whittaker, General Manager of Clean Stream Technologies. “It is highly effective because it goes much further than standard purifiers by combining medically proven ultraviolet UVC germicidal irradiation with safe and effective earth mineral technology originally developed for the US military and still used today to destroy chemical warfare agents and toxic industrial chemicals.”

“EnviroKlenz is highly effective against pollution and smoke intruding from the street or immediate environment. It also provides a highly visible reminder to customers, visitors and staff that the enterprise whose space they have entered is concerned to protect their health and wellbeing,” says Mr Whittaker. “This can be a strong incentive for customers to prefer your accommodation – or for staff to recognise that you are taking active steps to protect them against multiple health hazards, including hay fever (allergic rhinitis), which affects about 18 per cent of people in Australia and New Zealand. It is effective against:

  • Chemicals and odours from cleaning agents, water damage or renovations that cause indoor air quality problems
  • Mould or mildew from water damage in bathrooms or ductwork in hospitality, commercial and industrial ductwork
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted as gases from certain solids or liquids or from carpets, furniture and other contributors to low IAQ scores
  • Demand for severe allergy-friendly or allergy friendly accommodation and working environments

“Sometimes the issue is excluding potential carriers of risk factors such as contagious conditions; sometimes the issue is to exclude the risk factors such as vehicle pollution, bushfire smoke and widespread allergens including pollen,” says Mr Whittaker.

Lab-tested to top international standards

The compact, self-contained, wheeled unit runs quietly, producing around 55 to 60 decibels, depending on the model. It cleans 93 sq m (1,000 sq ft) to 99.9% disinfection in under 18 minutes. When used in conjunction with a HVAC system, the EnviroKlenz Air System Plus turns over the air around 17 times an hour, which is equivalent to once every 3 minutes and 52 seconds.

The US-patented medical grade system has been third-party Intertek laboratory tested to demonstrate its removal of 99.9% of airborne viruses down to 0.025 microns, says Clean Stream Technologies, which is a subsidiary of the long-established Enware brand, widely respected as a supplier to hospitals, laboratories, health facilities, architects and specifiers for social infrastructure, including schools.

The laboratory testing is for a broad spectrum of viruses, including SARS-COV-2, and the size of virus’ against which it is effective are multiple times smaller than the Covid-19 coronavirus.

EnviroKlenz is also 99.9 per cent effective in neutralisation of gram-negative bacteria (E. Coli) and 99.9 per cent effective against gram-positive bacteria (Staphylococcus epidermidis), according to the testing by Intertek Labs, which are audited/accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 or equivalent Standard, which enables laboratories to demonstrate that they operate competently and generate valid results, thereby promoting confidence in their work both nationally and around the world.


Latest ZeoMed spill kits respond to mandatory staff protection needs

Clean Stream Technologies is introducing to Australia and New Zealand its latest ZeoMed biohazard spill kits, designed to comply with Department of Health regulations in the handling of bloodborne pathogens in workplaces, public and recreational areas.

Each kit is designed to provide a hygienic handling and disposal system for spills, including blood, vomit, and body fluids that pose health hazards including HIV and Hepatitis.

“Spills are an area that you want to clean quickly. Quite apart from their unsightly appearance, or foul smell, they can cause a slip hazard on hard floors, or they can transmit bloodborne diseases,” said Clean Stream Technologies General Manager, Scott Whittaker.

ZeoMed body fluid spill kits contain absorbent powder, absorbent cleaning cloths, sealing waste disposal bags or sealing bulk containers, face masks, splash goggles, gloves, aprons, scoops, scrapers, bright yellow waste warning materials and instruction sheets.

ZeoMed kits – which can be hung next to fire extinguishers or placed in first aid kits for quick recognition – include protection required by Safe Work Australia. Contents of the kits include absorbent powder, absorbent cleaning cloths, sealing waste disposal bags or sealing bulk containers, face masks, splash goggles, gloves, aprons, scoops, scrapers, bright yellow waste warning materials and instruction sheets.

“It is now a legal requirement for all employers to have controls in place to protect staff from potential infection from body spills. The legal requirements extend across a broad range of industry, commerce and public institutions, ranging from hospitality, leisure, and entertainment venues, to retail, industrial, transport and medical and laboratory facilities,” says Mr Whittaker.

Customised kits can also be produced to suit the particular needs of individual sites. The main kits include:

  • Body Fluid Spill Kit (designed for in-field use with portable first aid kits for quick access by employees)
  • Biohazard Spill Kit (ideal for corporate, hospitality and public domains, located near first aid stations or cleaning trolleys)
  • Cytotoxic Body Fluid Spill Kit (provides additional protection for cleanups of body fluids from patients who have been treated with cytotoxic drugs)
  • Laboratory Spill Kit (configured for laboratory and similar applications where spills may be body fluid or other liquids, such as chemicals)
  • Multipurpose Spill Kit (for venues such as supermarkets, variety stores, shopping centres, restaurants, hospitality and transport terminals where staff or the public may be at risk from biohazard and chemical hazards as well as slip and fall hazards)
  • Sharps Kit (ideal for safely disposing of needles and syringes)

Supply of EnviroKlenz air purifiers to NSW Public Schools

To assist with a safer return to school, Clean Stream has supplied 1000 Enviroklenz air purifiers to classrooms in NSW via the Department of Education.

Their main role is the destruction of airborne aerosols (bacteria and viruses including COVID-19). With a medical-grade HEPA filter and chemical filter, it is the ultimate unit to maximise indoor air quality. We partnered with WINC Australia in this Department of Education tender in November 2021, planning for a return to school in 2022.

The Enviroklenz units offer not only removal of 99.9% airborne pathogens using germicidal UVC irradiation, but also airborne chemical vapours that affect so many chemically sensitive people, followed by a HEPA14 medical-grade HEPA filter. This removes any airborne irritants such as pollutants, dust, allergens and makes for an easier to breathe atmosphere for children and adults with respiratory ailments such as asthma.

EnviroKlenz is perfect for offices in the return to workspace for the same benefits above. Clean Stream is also in the middle of a media launch into the dental industry to offer airborne pathogen removal from dental surgeries.
