How Our Air Sterilisers Work

The Sayoli Air Sterilisers are not only designed to look good, but to be as effective as possible in removing harmful substances from the air around you.

Using the most advanced technologies in the industry, our UV-C air sterilisers eliminate 99.9% of bacteria and germs. As it's hard to see the results with your eyes, we're here to explain how everything works.

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

How do the Sayoli Air Sterilisers work?

Inside there is a lamp emitting UV-C radiation. This radiation has a very effective bactericidal effect.

The air is drawn in by the fan from below and goes to the disinfection chamber. Inside it is exposed to concentrated UV-C radiation. This is where the microbes are immediately destroyed. The disinfected air then leaves the device through the upper ventilation holes.

The air movement is forced by a fan designed for continuous operation.

Within 1 hour our devices can sterilise as much as 30m3 of air.

The steriliser does not have a negative impact on the human body, which allows you to stay in the room during the sterilisation process. No ozone is produced.

Who uses Sayoli Air Sterilisers?

A wide array of small and large businesses use Sayoli Air Sterilisers to help keep their customers, visitors and staff safe while at work - these include Offices, Hairdressers, Beauty Salons, Restaurants, Bars, Schools, Nurseries, Hotels, Guest Houses and more.

Devrim Kahramanoglu, Director of Operations at Uncommon Workspaces in London said Sayoli "was a perfect partner to work with in order to provide a safe environment for our members, colleagues and alike." Uncommon placed Sayoli UV-C Air Sterilisers in all of their Reception, Coffee Shop and Meeting Room areas.

Personal use is also common - with many customers enjoying the benefits of clean, virus-free air at home - and with our smaller Sayoli 30 - in their cars.

What is a virucidal UV-C lamp?

The technology of air and surface sterilisation is based on bactericidal effects of UV radiation.

The UV-C radiation with wavelength of 250-280nm has the best bactericidal and virucidal effectiveness from the entire UV electromagnetic range.

The lamp destroys bacteria, viruses, mold and fungi. The radiation changes the structure of cytoplasmic proteins and nucleic acids destroying the DNA structure of the microorganism. This leads to a chemical reaction, which destroys harmful pathogens.

What is UV-C radiation?

Viruses have a protective layer called capsid. When the genetic material escapes the capsid, the virus can infect people. This is why the UV-C radiation needs to penetrate the capsid to neutralise the virus.

Only strong light with a wavelength of 250-280nm can destroy viruses and bacteria in seconds.

As shown by numerous studies, this method of sterilisation is one of the most effective, easiest and safest ways to ensure effective decontamination of air.
