This is Apollo. The eco-friendly lamp that has air + surface purification. ↓ (click to dropdown)

Introducing: The Apollo


We went back to the drawing board to make sanitation smart.

More than ever we have people using chemicals every day, manually wiping surfaces down.

Using all types of air purification devices...

The Apollo, the all-in-one, air + surface purification device is complete area protection for you, and those around you.

The Greeks believed Apollo, a Sun God, had the power of healing, medicine, and purification.

We named our lamp after him.

This is because Apollo creates safer living environments with UV-C light. This is done through purification, that is, Two-In-One Purification.

The UV-C rays the Apollo emits eliminate pathogens and allergens in the air (one), and on surfaces (two).

Through disinfection we're able to create safe living environments, safeguarding those around us.

See, UV-C is a special type of light, not too bad for humans, and deadly for germs.

(It's not recommended to be in the room when the apollo is on though).

UV-C originates from the sun but never makes it to earth ↓ , it stops right at the ozone layer.

Why does UV-C never make it to the earth?


We subdivide UV light into three types, UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C.

UV-C is can not pass the atmosphere. Because it can not pass through the atmosphere, pathogens can not build up immunities.

UV-C passes through the weak walls of microorganisms and disrupts their DNA and RNA.

Living organisms have not been exposed to it, making them susceptible to it.

For humans, most of the dead skin on our bodies absorb the UV-C. Germs don't have this luxury.

We stole this UV-C from the sun and put it into Apollo, making the elusive disinfecting power of UV-C available to everyone.

We took this power of UV-C and put it into Apollo so you can use this light to eliminate up to 99.9% of allergens, viruses, bacteria, and mold. ↓ 

HC OC43 Viral Kill Report Summary

SmartUV has validated the effectiveness of its Apollo UV-C lamp on inactivating the HC OC43 virus (ATCC: VR-1558) at 1 meter, 4 meters, and 8 meters.


This was done in an EPA, FDA, certified lab with ISO 17025 standards.

The results indicated an average HC OC43 Viral kill percentage of 99.997% at 1 meter(3.28 feet) away.

An average of 99.935% at 4 meters (13.12 feet) away.

As well as an average of 90.550% at 8 meters (26.24 feet) away.

These results indicate that there is over a 99.9% effectiveness at viral disinfection in a range of 645 sq ft for the Apollo, and further at 1378 sq ft, a 90% reduction.

This type of light is dubbed germicidal, because it's so crazy effective at killing germs, and they can't build up immunity.

It's been used for decades in many industries you already know, even much of your food has been UV-C disinfected.

Your hospitals use it, ventilation systems, care homes, and more.

It's a peace-of-mind disinfecting light. Chemical-free, powerful, fast-acting, and eco-friendly.

The Apollo works up to 645 sq ft, for entire room disinfection, timers range from 15 minutes to 1 hour.

It's more than just an air purifier. The Apollo disinfects surfaces and the air alike.

The Apollo has safety features built it, making the best practices seamless and easy to follow.

5-meter motion sensors for unexpected visitors and pets, a 10s delayed start, and a remote.

Some interesting facts about UV-C: it can't pass through glass, making it a great option for offices and cars and homes.

One Apollo is good for most room sizes, small and large, up to 645 square feet.

For smaller rooms, we recommend using the shorter timer of 15 minutes. For the largest disinfection range, use 60 minutes.

Many customers also use multiple lamps to increase coverage. The units work together, cutting down the time required and increases the area covered. This works well too.

The Apollo is very lightweight and easy to move.

Sitting at just under 4 pounds and 2 feet tall, it's big enough to get coverage and portable enough to move from room to room.

The Apollo is assurance in another layer of sanitation.

To know and have others know that your room has been disinfected and is safe.

The Apollo availability is very low due to high demand.

If you want the disinfecting power of UVC, act now to ensure you get Apollo UVC lamps.

UV-C Basics

What is UV-C light?

Light is electromagnetic radiation. UV light is a classification of this light. Our sun emits all types of light, many of which we are familiar with today. A few of these types of light include, infrared, visible light, ultraviolet, and gamma rays.

 


We subdivide UV light into three types, UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C. UV-C is can not pass the atmosphere. Because it can not pass through the atmosphere, pathogens can not build up immunities. UV-C passes through the weak walls of microorganisms and disrupts their DNA and RNA.

 


Our UV-C lamps are a photon based purification system that produce photolysis. Photolysis is the use to break down chemical compounds. Photolysis kills and inactivates allergens, viruses, bacteria, and mold.

 


We call Electromagnetic Photolysis. This purification system is the most effective disinfection method, the best sanitation method. Purifying the air and all surfaces within the effective range.

Is UV-C safe to use?

UV-C light is safe to use, with restrictions.

It is not recommended to be in the room when using a UV-C disinfection device. Most of the dead skin on on our bodies will absorb the UV-C, but the complication for this could be a rash. If you look at the UV-C device while it is running, a short time is okay but the the complication here would be conjunctivitis.

Smart UV makes its UV-C devices with safety features and protective eyewear to ensure your safety. The Apollo uses an ozone-free bulb and produces no ozone.

There is a 10 second delay to start The Apollo, and uses 5-meter motion detection sensors for pets and unexpected visitors. The Apollo also comes with UV-C protective glasses and a remote, if you wish to use the unit from a distance.Smart UV uses a 30 second delay to start the unit.

Smart UV produces a small amount of ozone, for double sanitation, and it is best to wait 30-45 minutes after use to allow the odor to dissipate.The Helios UV-C wand uses LED UV-C and this is different than the lamps.

UV-C when emitted from an LED will be direct and funneled and concentrated. This is why we can use low level wattage, and why Helios is safe to hold for surface disinfection.Smart UV's UV-C disinfection devices should only be used by adults, as which all other disinfection agents.

They are chemical-free, and they are still used for sanitation purposes and best used in the hands of an adult.

Does UV-C require direct contact?

UV-C light does have to shine on the area to disinfect. UV-C light has very low reflection rates, and can not even pass through glass. For good disinfection in a room, we recommend more than one unit.

It is also a possibility to move the unit around once or twice to ensure good room sanitation levels.

If a user is looking to disinfect an entire room with The Apollo, then we recommend three units placed in uniform throughout the room. This ensures no shadows and a complete disinfection cycle.

Does UV-C work on mold?

UV-C light is an excellent method to kill mold and other types of allergens. The disinfection effect from UV-C light isn’t something organic allergens or bacteria can build up a tolerance to. This will work for musty smells as well.

Can UV-C pass through glass?

UV-C can't pass through standard glass. It can pass through quartz, which is what our bulbs are made out of. It is completely safe to look at UVC light through standard glass. The blue light passes through. The ultraviolet (unseen) germicidal light will be stopped in its tracks from glass and other transparent plastics.

UV-C Safety and Use

Can I be in the same room as the Apollo?

It is not recommended to be in the room when using a UV-C disinfection device.

Most of the dead skin on on our bodies will absorb the UV-C, but the complication for this could be a rash. If you look at the UV-C device while it is running, a short time is okay but the the complication here would be conjunctivitis. When used in the recommended way, UV-C light is safe to use, with restrictions.

Is UV-C safe for plants?

It is not safe to use UV-C light next to plants. We recommend moving the plants outside the room when using any UV-C products, or covering them up.

Does UV-C damage photographs, paintings, fabrics, wood, etc

UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C are all emitted from the sun but UV-C doesn’t make it through the atmosphere. So the typical UV damage from the sun that you’re familiar with is from either UV-A or UV-B.

UV-C is typically only found in man-made devices and it's been dubbed the germicidal wavelength because it disrupts the RNA and DNA of bacteria, viruses, germs etc. and this is where it's the most effective.

Things like wood etc. would take a very long time to affect. Over a long period of time, you might see some effects, but it's not something you should worry about.

UV-C light does fade certain color fabrics over a long period of time. We recommend that they are removed from the room.

What is ozone? Do I need ozone?

Ozone destroys pathogens by ripping electrons from them and breaking their cellular walls in a process called oxidation. Ozone also destroys organic and inorganic contaminants through the same electron-ripping process and breaks them down to their base elements. Ozone is extremely powerful and the reaction is virtually instantaneous. This process of ripping electrons stabilizes the ozone molecule and converts it back to regular O2. This give-and-take process is also referred to as reduction/oxidation or redox for short.

Ozone is carcinogenic and should not be breathed in. Ozone levels should never exceed the following average: 0.10 ppm (parts per million) for 8 hours per day exposure.

Most individuals do not need strong ozone producing lamps. It is double sanitation and provides extra levels of disinfection.

The ozone producing Apollo unit can be purchased upon request. When using an ozone producing Apollo, a 4 hour wait time before entering the room is required, and the recommendation is to use the devices at night.

Does the Apollo produce ozone?

The Apollo has uses an ozone-free bulb, and creates no odor or ozone. Helios uses LED UV-C and produces no ozone.

General

Can I use the Apollo in a dental office, showroom, hotel, etc?

Yes, the Apollo has a wide range of commercial applications.

You can use multiple Apollo units at once to cover a larger space.

Many of our customers are hotels, AirBnB's, gyms, dentists, clinics, homes, and more.

What wavelength does the Apollo emit at?

The Apollo emits only at the germicidal wavelength of 253.7nm

Most UV-C lamps emit at multiple frequencies, but our doped quartz bulbs block all lower wave UV wavelengths and produce germicidal and some visual blue light.

Is the Apollo battery operated or wall plug in?

The Apollo requires a standard wall socket plugin.
