Nitisha from BisInfotech talks with Ankit Sharma, Director, Airific Systems about its products and specialty. Here are the excerpts;
Q. Pollution is becoming a growing snag for developing economies, how is your company addressing these challenges.
Pollution is one of the most common reasons for global climate change. The air quality in north India is expected to deteriorate further from November to February due to several factors such as stubble burning, festive fireworks, and low wind speed conditions which lead to an uptick in vehicular and industrial pollution. Airific Systems Pvt Ltd has tied up with major companies to provide ESPs (electronic static precipitators) for this problem to our clients. The name of the product we are promoting at the moment is called UVHEAL™ SAFEAIR. UVHEAL™ SAFEAIR is an in-duct disinfectant for continuous air supply for central air conditioning systems. The modular design of UVHeal SafeAir, allows you to get the best solution for your requirements. Each and every system is designed using CFO (computational fluid dynamics), and designed on the basis of exposure time, and UV dosage required to disinfect a particular pathogen. Air disinfection takes place through the air being forced by natural convection into the irradiated region of a UV disinfection device. The air then passes through the UV rays from the germicidal lamps within the UVHEAL™ SAFEAIR system. The UV rays render the airborne microorganisms, such as viruses, bacteria, yeasts and fungi, inactive by disrupting their cellular membranes and by damaging their DNA or RNA.

Technology is very powerful and nothing is as good as technology at improving life. Technology can affect the human lifestyle and its ecosystem both ways. New technology always changes our life very much and takes it to a new level. It is like a new way of thinking or doing the normal things differently, better, and much faster with less hassle and at a much easy way out.
Q. How do you define your company differently from others?
I don’t hesitate to say that there are other players in the market for quite some time now, but every service was designed and created to cater to a limited base of audience. That’s a harsh fact! Way before this idea of UV Heal UVHealSafeAir’ – India’s Most Advanced UVHealSafeAir’ – an ultra-modern UV-Based HVAC Air Disinfectant’ for indoor quality of air, also to Make the Air Virus-Free. We always thought that there is a need to spread awareness about the indoor air quality, so while doing our market research, we found that a huge number of consumers are still unaware of the impurities they intake in their daily life. In some cases, the digital presence was there, but all they needed was a catalyst that can boost their operations. We as a partner are acting like a catalyst that triggers their entire marketing and operational processes.
Q. How was the year 2019-20 in terms of business?

We are planning to position UVHEAL SAFEAIR , one of the leading Duct based safe air solution provider brand in India. We will focus on 360 marketing strategy to create awareness about SAFE INDOOR AIR to make Indian safer place to work or live in.
My only plan is to make https://www.uvhealsafeair.com a platform that is easily accessible to every user who is looking for disinfecting of virus or for indoor quality of air. We are doing all the technological advancements to achieve that. I am focusing on just one fact that anyone who is looking for a safe and healthy environment shall think only of UV Heal.
Q. Impact of covid19 and how do you cope up with such issues?
COVID-19 has been tough on everyone personally and professionally. But, if you see with every crisis, new businesses emerge, and go on to do big things! I guess I’m holding on to that glimmer of light, and hoping that the situation resolves soon!
Q. Any key products you want to highlight, features and specs?
Through many iterations, and long hours spent in the office and at our manufacturing facilities, we have finally come up with what we believe as the perfect technology to deal with the issues that we see today. There are two ends to this product, and without one joining the other, the process of getting the correct solution to our clients fails. The first component is obviously getting the right hardware setup. It was very important to realize that we must design a system that we can mass produce. One whose production can be scaled up several notches if required, and in that capacity we were able to create a modular design that requires very little customization that allows us to provide quick delivery times to our customers, and reduces the overall cost as well. The second component is software. It is one thing placing a UV lamp in a duct and hoping that you kill the pathogens present in the duct, for that I might not have even needed to create this product! But, to get the right output, it is very important that each and every system is designed on the basis of each and every location. We have developed a software that takes in various input parameters in a 3D format, and on the basis of these input parameters, we are able to determine the number of lamps required to achieve 99% disinfection of certain viruses, bacteria etc in the air. The software also creates an intensity map, and portrays the kill percentage of various types of pathogens present in the air at different locations!
