Vessels

PRS UVC technology provides a safe indoor environment, drastically reducing the spread of airborne infections onboard, allowing normal operations to resume.

Challenges to the Industry

Like many industries the pandemic caused significant problems in the maritime world, particularly for the cruise ship operators

The pandemic has had a catastrophic commercial impact on the maritime industry. The global cruise industry was stopped in its tracks, losing in excess of US$45 billion during 2020 and 2021. Cargo vessels, far more numerous in number, don’t have quite the same passenger safety issues, however operators have to manage disruptive and expensive quarantine periods for crew, depending on the infection levels found when approaching port.

PRS can deliver the safe, internal pathogen-free air, so imperative to these businesses.

 

Assured Operations

Improves operational confidence, ensuring future bookings and revenues

 

Proven Efficacy

Efficacy proven via live testing with SARS-CoV-2, Influenza A and Measles viruses

Safer Vessels

PRS will ensure safe air recirculation protecting all passengers and crew

 

Bespoke Design

Systems are designed to suit the specific air handling parameters of the vessel

We offer a complete bespoke solution. PRS units are easily integrated into existing shipboard HVAC systems, treating the air before it is circulated through the vessel.

All air passing through the Optical Cavity will be treated with high-power UVC and airborne viruses, moulds and bacteria will be inactivated. A summary of the testing can be downloaded via the link below.

FAQ

What does the system do?

We offer a range of UVC-based solutions, all using our ‘patents pending’ optical cavity and safety design elements, to inactivate pathogens in moving air and create safer environments – Any Pathogen – Any Space – Any Environment. 

Our system will instantly ‘kill’ any airborne pathogen that passes through the optical cavity. Our technology has fully been tested on SARS-CoV-2, Influenza A, Measles and Aspergillus Niger. 

View our System page for more detailed information.

How do I know it works?

As a science-led company we believe that the highest quality testing should be carried out with ‘live’ pathogens, rather than surrogates, and that test conditions should be as close to real works as possible.

To this end, efficacy testing has been carried out with live pathogens: Measles, Flu A, SARS-CoV-2 and Aspergillus Niger, in a Bio 3 safety level Laboratory, using a modified ASHRAE 185/ISO 15714 single pass testing standard protocol. Our adaptation meant tougher testing: air speed increased from 2.5 m/s to 6m/s, creating a residence time of only a sixth of a second, and the use of live viruses instead of surrogates.

Details of testing can be found here.

Is your system safe?

We have carried out advanced electrical safety testing (to domestic standards) and UVC safety testing. Our patent-pending optical cavity design ensures UVC is contained within the optical cavity and therefore can not damage infrastructure within existing ventilation systems or pose a risk to personnel.

Safety certification details can be found here.

How does your system integrate into my vessel?
We all need safe air to breath. Beyond that simple statement every space is different. The great thing about PRS is so are we.

Being a science-based company, we view problems differently. We have solutions, tested efficacy, and scalable design, and we can apply this to Any Pathogen – Any Space – Any Environment.

PRS systems can be integrated into existing plant, whether that is a centralised HVAC system, localised fan-coils, or rooms without any existing mechanical air-handling. We look at your space, existing plant, and individual needs, then build a specific solution for you.

How does PRS help the environment?

The need for infection resilient environments and better indoor air quality IAQ is a given, trying to balance this with our moral and legislative duty to reduce carbon emissions can seem like opposing goals. PRS with its unique approach, and patents pending design features can help you achieve both.

Being able to recirculate air, because it has been safely treated to inactive pathogens, removes the need to heat and cool vast amounts of air within your environment, saving fuel and reducing equipment degradation, reducing your carbon footprint. 

No other units on the market today produces higher levels of UVC irradiation as a ratio to energy usage than PRS, together with our bespoke design for every environment and world leading test data we are able to maximise efficacy whilst minimising power consumption, again helping your carbon footprint. 

Continuous product development has led to the use of material components that last longer, for example lamps last 60,000 hrs meaning less raw material used.

What is the lifetime of a unit?

If maintained correctly units will last for at least 25 years.

What are the maintenance requirements?

Bio-annual checks should be carried out. As with all mechanical equipment, some parts will need to be periodically replaced over the life of the system. For example:

– Lamps burn for 60,000 hours.

– Ballasts typically last 5 years.

Individual maintenance contracts are designed for each client’s needs.
