BSG-Mini-Powerzone

Developing Technology That Works

For over 20 years, we have been designing and manufacturing highly effective disinfection products that help people and companies improve their air quality, reduce maintenance costs, reduce carbon footprints, and help prolong the life of their equipment.

We use nature’s most powerful and effective disinfectants, such as ultraviolet light, photoplasma, and negatively-charged ions, all of which are perfectly designed to destroy odours, bacteria, viruses, mould, and mildew, and to break down unwanted chemicals and compounds.

BSG’s technology solutions and products are enjoyed by millions to disinfect surfaces and air and improve the quality of life in homes and businesses all over the world.

What is Ultraviolet (UV) Light?

Ultraviolet (UV) light has been used safely for over a century to disinfect drinking water and sterilize air and surfaces. It is invisible to the human eye and is categorised by wavelength into UV-A (blacklights), UV-B (sunburns), and UV-C (germicidal).

UV-C radiation is the main type used in UV disinfection technology, and it has been shown to disinfect surfaces, air, and objects and kill bacteria and viruses in seconds. UV-C can be used in numerous disinfection applications from public transport and restaurants to hospitals, schools, and offices. Agencies such as the US EPA, US FDA, US Government, ASHRAE, CIBSE (UK) and ISHRAE (India) all approve UV technologies for disinfection and sanitation applications. UV-C light is powerful enough to penetrate the cell walls of microorganisms and shatter the DNA, making it impossible for them to grow and reproduce. Because of this power, BSG ensures that all our disinfection products are equipped with safe-guards to prevent human exposure while maintaining powerful germ-fighting capabilities.

The Power of UV Light

BSG’s ultraviolet lamps may employ one or more specific wavelengths of light as required by the application and intended use.

Benefits of UV Technology

HVAC systems with UV disinfection are proven to have the following benefits:

  • Effective – Reduce microbial contamination within HVAC systems by more than 90% in seconds
  • Healthy – Lower respiratory illnesses among occupants by more than 40%
  • Trusted – An accepted and accredited disinfection solution for over a century
  • Natural – Provide a natural solution to the problem of drug-resistant and chemical-resistant infectious diseases

What is Photoplasma?

Photoplasma effectively reduces bacteria, viruses, mould, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and unpleasant odours.

When specific wavelengths of UV light react with the air, it creates purifying plasma. Plasma is the fourth state of matter, energized beyond solid, liquid, or gas. 99% of the matter found in the universe is in a plasma state.

Photoplasma can be found naturally and is often referred to as the ‘detergent’ of the Earth’s atmosphere due to its ability to break down many harmful pollutants.

Benefits of Plasma Technology

Plasma has the power to destroy bacteria, fungi, viruses, yeast, mould, algae, odours, and other harmful micro-organisms.

BSG’s patented technologies are recognized as among the most efficient and cost-effective methods known for producing photoplasma.

As true plasma-producing devices, BSG solutions are proven to give the following benefits:

  • Energy-efficient
  • Quick
  • Effective
  • Cost-effective
  • Safe

What is Ozone?

Ozone is a powerful oxidant found naturally in the environment. Like photoplasma, it is created by the reaction of oxygen and specific wavelengths of UV light.

Widely recognized for its abilities to destroy germs, bacteria, viruses, odours, and micro-contaminants, ozone breaks down unwanted organic compounds including harsh chemicals.

Ozone can become an irritant in high concentrations. BSG’s products and methodologies are compliant with national and international ozone concentration guidelines.

Benefits of Ozone Disinfection

For more than a century, ozone has been used to safely disinfect drinking water, and is approved for multiple foodservice applications by the US FDA.

What is Photocatalytic Oxidation?

Photocatalytic oxidation, or PCO, is an advanced oxidation process that combines the power of UV light and a highly reactive metallic catalyst to accelerate photoreactions.

In the PCO process, the UV light’s energy reacts with the catalyst to create an energy gap that is used to generate free radicals, including hydroxyl radicals.

The radical species are highly reactive with organic compounds, and quickly and efficiently oxidize odours, bacteria, viruses, and harmful or unwanted chemicals.

Benefits of Photocatalytic Oxidation

Photocatalytic oxidation processes destroy VOC’s catalytically on certain surface materials.

What is Negative Ionization?

Positive and negative ions occur naturally in the air and are one of nature’s most efficient means of decreasing airborne contamination such as bacteria, viruses, and VOCs, and neutralizing odourous gases and aerosols.

Ions are electrically charged particles that have either gained or lost electrons.

Negatively charged ions have an excess of electrons which gives them a net negative electric charge.

BSG’s solutions may employ a negative ion generator to systematically attract multiple compounds in the air and bind them together to increase the yield of destruction of odour molecules, bacteria, viruses, and chemicals that are targeted by BSG’s other technologies.

Benefits of Negative Ionization

Negative ions lower the concentration of harmful chemicals in the air by balancing the number of positive ions.
