How does UV light disinfect the air we breathe?

Bluezone by Middleby Model 450 kills airborne pathogens like the flu, cold and corona-virus with UV-C germicidal lamps. Ultraviolet lamps have a long history of sanitizing surfaces in laboratories and food-processing industries and also for disinfecting water supplies. Since the UV-C lamps are locked inside the Bluezone chamber it is safe to operate 24/7 in occupied spaces to keep your guests and employees safe!

Model 450 works by pulling air into a chamber where it is scrubbed with an ultraviolet germicidal light process that destroys a virus’ RNA. This eliminates the ability for it to replicate itself, protecting both staff and guests. Bluezone has received clearance as a Class II medical device by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) based on clinical data that demonstrated efficacy, safety and reliability.

How Many Bluezones Do I Need?

Here at Bluezone by Middleby, we’ve created the formula for safe air, but that formula largely depends on the size and configuration of the space in question. To maximize air purification efforts as efficiently and economically as possible, it’s essential to calculate the room’s dimensions in relation to the unit’s output capacity.

What are the benefits of Using bluezone by middleby?

Viruses are spread by droplets and aerosols that come from coughing, sneezing, talking, and breathing. By removing, or destroying the viruses and bacteria in the air we can again gather safely in classrooms, restaurants and office buildings. Maintenance is easy and our installation options blend into your decor.

Gather Safely

Ultraviolet germicidal lighting is used to eliminate contaminants from all types of spaces, from restaurants to healthcare facilities. Now you can create safer environments to help protect staff, residents, guests, and anyone else who breathes the air no matter where they gather.

Low Maintenance

After the initial investment of a Bluezone unit, the only requirement is to change out the bulbs roughly once a year, a task easily managed by the facilities staff, requiring only 15 minutes. No more switching out filters every few weeks. Plus, the unit lets you know when a new bulb is needed, eliminating the guesswork.
