Air Probe Sanitizer
Clarifications to the Air Probe Sanitizer video
At the time the video was made, some of the ways that UV-C helped destroy dust, odors, and volatile
organic compounds (VOC's) were not clearly understood. Hydroxyl ions are not mentioned, only negative ions.
You can read about hydroxyl here.
The "Flush Mount" unit: no reference is made in the video to a model number. The model
is briefly shown in the video. Also, the sockets are now mounted 90 degrees to the position shown on
the FME-200 in the video. The current design FME-200 is correctly shown on
the web site photos.
References to 120 volts and step-down transformers are now all but obsolete. The latest design Air
Probe Sanitizers now have an electronic ballast which automatically adjusts the current for any input
voltage between 103 volts and 280 volts.
The slot size mentioned for the model T-200 is 4" x 17". We suggest that the slot length be about
15" and not 17", as the standard model is 17" long.
It is recommended that any existing wires (that may not have UV-resistant insulation) be covered
with something to prevent deterioration over time by the UV rays, such as duct tape or black split loom
You should also read and follow the instructions that we include with each Air Probe Sanitizer.

Air Probe Sanitizer Installation Videos
After viewing the intro videos above, click on a link below to see and
hear how to install the UV-C Air Probe Sanitizer in different typical installations*.
installation (large buildings)
* NOTE: the installation of these air purification products, as easy as it
may look on the video, should be performed only by a heating and air
conditioning professional (or equivalent).
These very important points may not be apparent from watching the
1. The units MUST be installed DOWNSTREAM on the COLD AIR SIDE of the
air conditioner cooling coil
(the evaporator or A-coil, if one exists)!
The reasons: if they were installed on the inlet side
of the cooling coil instead of the side where the cooled air exits, negative
hydroxyl ions would be trapped by
the coil fins instead of exiting out of the duct vents in the rooms. Also, mold and mildew growth would
not be as effectively controlled.
2. The units must ALSO be installed close to the coil so that the UV
light shines on as much of the coil and condensate drain pan as possible. The reason:
the cooling coil and condensate (water) catch pan is where mold, slime, and
bacteria normally grows, and the UV light has to shine on the coil in order to
prevent this and keep the coil clean and the air pure.
The installations shown in the installation video are upflow systems, and the units
are downstream (on the cooled air side) of the coils. if you are installing them in a downflow system,
you cannot place them as shown in the video. In that case, they might be installed in the plenum below
the cooling coil rather than as shown. There are other installation methods and
different models for this.
After installation, the power to the Air Probe Sanitizer should remain on to avoid shortening the life of the
The enclosed normally-open cover switch should be installed so that power to the Air Probe Sanitizer
is removed when the access panel (if any) is opened.
