Air Oasis Air Purifier
Most highly-recommended air purifiers are the HEPA filter types with a multi-layered filtration system. But there’s actually one that I find rather interesting, have credible claims and, therefore, really worth looking into. The Air Oasis air purifiers are oftentimes, if not always, mistaken as one of those harmful, ozone-producing air filters or purifiers and when we speak of ozone, people usually bolt for the door in a heartbeat. This Air Oasis air purifier review will give you a rundown of what this purifier is and what it isn’t.
The Air Oasis air purifier is NOT another harmful ozone producing product. It is a PCO (photocatalytic oxidation) purifier with a patent-pending nano technology that is derived from NASA technology. What it does is it releases ions that react with various pollutants in the air. Now, ozone levels will always be present and while other purifiers exceed the FDA-approved levels, Air Oasis not only matches the FDA level but also that of the ozone levels of forest air.

Are PCO purifiers better than HEPA filters?
I’m going to go out on a limb here and say, yes, it is. Well, potentially, it is if you make sure that you your PCO isn’t a cheap replica or make that uses the cheapest catalyst metal in the market. Air Oasis air purifier’s Nickel Hydrated Catalytic Technology or Nickel HCT uses five metals as catalyst that not only cleans the air but sanitizes surfaces as well. It does this without the need for a fan to force the air into the purifier. On top of that it can get rid of microns as small as 0.001, a size HEPA filters cannot do alone. It works with a broad spectrum of UV light that have the same oxidizing and ionizing function as the sun. This technology has also been employed by meat sectors and has proven to reduce bacteria in processing plants.
In a nutshell, it works like this: the purifier releases catalysts in the air that will bond harmful particles (microorganisms, bacteria and mold) and toxins (including toxic gases) in the air. The broad-spectrum UV light will react with these catalysts and burn the target particles.
Is this the same as purifiers that use UV lights?
Most of these UV light purifiers rely on the germicidal UV light alone which can only zap bacteria on contact and do not have the capacity to get rid of allergens or smoke. The Air Oasis air purifier has catalysts that will not require the target particles to come in contact with the UV lamp to be destroyed. These catalysts also make it possible for air particles (including cigarette smoke, odors and VOC’s ) to be adsorbed onto their surfaces.
With all that said, the Air Oasis air purifier is truly on a league of its own with studies and research to test its technology. Air Oasis air purifier reviews also abound online and those who have used the product can attest to its effectiveness. The purifier is reasonably priced, requires zero maintenance for three years, comes with a warranty, is energy-efficient and aesthetically appealing for the powerhouse that it is.
