ModuNOx™: Air Plasma Ozone, NOx, RONS Generator Modules
We supply our Air Plasma technology in modular devices – with support services – to generate the gases your application demands, rapidly and at scale.
Example: OXONOX (external link) wanted to improve hygiene in busy public spaces in response to COVID-19. Our ModuNOx™ OEM Solutions allowed them to rapidly integrate Air Plasma into new products, delivering easy, effective, safe and sustainable disinfection of escalator handrails using our technology.
- Developed and validated in the UK, with leading universities & grant funders.
- Founders & inventors: plasma physicists and spacecraft systems engineers.
- Calibration on request traceable to UK’s National Physical Laboratory (NPL).
- Manufacturable at high volumes & quality-assured in the UK to ISO9001.
- Air plasma generation technology protected by globally issued patent portfolio.
- Available at multiple levels of integration: enclosures, air flow handling, interfaces.
Why ModuNOx™ versus other plasma sources?
|Our Four Pillars:||ModuNOx™ Air Plasma||Thermal / hot plasma||Non-thermal / cold plasma|
|1 Easy||Modular, programmable OEM component design. High flexibility in RONS outputs and purities. Automated delivery of gas. Low to no maintenance. NOxLab™ accelerates R&D.||Low adaptability of RONS dose and not designed for OEM integration. Some devices apply RONS manually. High electrode erosion, requiring frequent recalibration.||Low adaptability of RONS dose and not designed for OEM integration. Manual application requires special training and is prone to error. Some devices require cumbersome compressed inert gas cylinders.|
|2 Effective||Highly repeatable, calibrated gas-phase RONS, ~0-500 ppm range. Long electrode lifetime and low drift. Fast, automated and uniform RONS treatment over wide areas.||Drift in RONS dose over time due to electrode erosion. Manual application makes it difficult to apply RONS consistently over wide or irregular surfaces.||Poorly defined, variable mechanism of action, including highly aggressive, unstable radicals. Manual application makes it difficult to apply RONS consistently over wide or irregular surfaces.|
|3 Safe||Packaged into shielded enclosures, to maximise user and public protection. Low air temperature. Precisely known RONS outputs, can be scrubbed before emission.||High electrode erosion produces metal dust. Some devices vent high concentrations of RONS without scrubbers to mitigate inhalation risk, and operate at high air temperatures.||Open air operation contaminates the plasma and changes RONS output. Increased risk of exposure to high voltages, electromagnetic interference. Often no RONS inhalation risk mitigation.|
|4 Sustainable||High RONS generation vs power efficiency. RONS are generated precisely at high concentrations and distributed around / confined in air-tight volumes.||Inefficient and high power consumption. Some devices waste power through open air operation, allowing RONS generated to rapidly disperse.||Inefficient and high power consumption.
