FORT LAUDERDALE, Fl. November 20th, 2015— Purealizer Industries, announced that the Purealizer UVGI fixture is among the products recognized in the 2016 AHR Expo Innovation Awards Competition.

The awards give special recognition to over 2,000 exhibiting companies that have developed the most creative and innovative product on the market in their category. The Purealizer represents a new generation of air disinfection, all within a compact 2’x 2’ fixture which can be easily installed into a drop ceiling grid which operates 24/7 to ensure air disinfection. Once installed, the system operates quietly, without supervision, or having to close off valuable space in healthcare facilities which requires disinfection.

Designed primarily for the healthcare market, the Purealizer has broader applications in commercial buildings, especially in schools given that airborne microorganisms disproportionately affect adolescents. Once installed, the Purealizer provides uninterrupted disinfection, eliminating microorganisms and pathogens which could be harmful for both children and adults.

“We are still a young company, being recognized by our industry leaders is very rewarding, it also validates both our product innovation and the direction of our company”, commented Mike Smith, president and CEO of Purealizer Industries, North America.   The Purealizer was named recipient of the 2016 AHR Expo Innovation Award (Honorable Mention) in the indoor air quality (IAQ) category, one of ten categories of competition. The Innovation Awards competition is jointly sponsored by the AHR Expo, ASHRAE and AHRI with the primary purpose of the Awards to inspire innovation, product and technology development.

“Our objective will always be driven on engineering innovation so our products maintain global competitiveness while helping to prevent the growing threat of infectious diseases. Perhaps what differentiates us from anything else is we see ourselves as more of a technology company, as it underscores the capabilities of our disinfection system and the three disciplines which were key in receiving the award, value, application and impact on the market,” commented Smith.

The Purealizer fixture will be on display in the Purealizer booth 3684 at the AHR Expo which will be held January 25th-27t in Orlando, Florida along with exhibitors representing every segment of the HVACR industry.

Representing a broad cross-section of the HVAC-R marketplace, the winning entries were selected in 10 categories and represent the most innovative new products among the thousands that will be displayed at the Show. The panel of judges for the AHR Expo Innovation Awards competition consists of leaders in the field of HVAC&R and plumbing.
