We would like to thank everyone who came by our booth at the show to learn about our products as well as our clients who made the effort to come see us at our booth. We are proud to provide our customers with only the best solutions. The show was also the first time customers were able to see our new product the Underflow. The Underflow was designed to maintain airflow and eliminate the need for large fans underneath. We are excited to offer another innovative product to our customers. If you didn’t get a chance to visit us in Toronto, we will be at the MJBizCon Las Vegas show in December!

Why Air Sniper Equipment Does Not Use HEPA Filters
June 19, 2019

There are many air sanitization units that use HEPA filters. HEPA filters capture pathogens rather than kill them. HEPA filters are not cost effective as one unit can include multiple filters that require frequent replacement. This is not a practical solution for facilities if there are many units installed within the facility. The removal of dirty HEPA filters from the units may spread contaminants throughout the rooms as the pathogens are still active and able to disperse back into the air.

Ultimate Solutions for Your Grow
June 12, 2019

Air Sniper offers complete solutions for your facility. Each solution is customizable for specific client needs while providing ultimate protection from contamination.

Stand-alone solution – This solution incorporates the use of the Air Sniper Pro, Elite, or Ultra to be installed in grow rooms, trim rooms, processing rooms or other areas where contaminants are present.

Inline and wall mounted solution – This solution incorporates both Air Sniper In-line equipment and the Air Sniper stand-alone equipment. The combination of the stand-alone and in-line units ensures that the incoming air in the HVAC is cleaned before entering the facility as well as the air inside rooms where wall-mounted units have been installed.

In-line, Wall-mounted, and induct solution – This solution ensures that every area of your HVAC and rooms is pathogen free. The addition of the induct units ensure that the coils in the HVAC are bacteria free.

Important Characteristics for Optimal UV Sanitization
June 5, 2019

AIR engineers used their extensive knowledge of UV technology to ensure our products are effective at irradiating pathogens.

Reflectivity – UV is not reflective in the same way that light is reflective. This means that UV reflective material is required within the units to ensure irradiation of pathogens.

Proximity – To achieve maximum irradiation of pathogens the UV bulbs must be near the air passing through. If the bulbs are not within proximity to the pathogens, maximum irradiation will not be achieved.

Dwell time – Dwell time is required to sufficiently irradiate pathogens passing through the unit. If adequate dwell time is not present many pathogens will remain active after exiting the unit resulting in possible contamination.

Don’t Let Contamination Kill Your Crops
May 15, 2019

New facilities often have a lower risk for contamination due to the unused materials. As more crops are grown the rooms become more susceptible to airborne contaminants. Air Sniper ensures contaminants are never present in your facility. Don’t wait until a crop is lost!

Not enough room in your HVAC for in-line units?
May 8, 2019

Air Sniper offers a variety of air sanitization solutions to meet the needs of every facility. We understand that an in-line solution may not be suitable for some facilities due to limited space or unique design of the HVAC. AIR offers three different sizes of small and mighty wall-mounted solutions to kill airborne pathogens before they contaminate your crops.

Air Sniper Plug & Play Design
May 1, 2019

All Air Sniper units have been designed as a plug & play system. This allows easy installation as further electrical work is not required. The plug & play system also allows the location of the units to be changed with ease if required.

Air Sniper conducts further third-party testing
April 17, 2019

Air Sniper conducts further third-party testing while operating within a licensed production facility. The room where the equipment was installed had previously tested positive for microbials. The results of the tests after the Air Sniper units were installed confirmed that the Air Sniper Ultra had successfully removed 100% of the microbials previously present in the room. For a full list of test results please contact us.

Cannabis Recalls in Canada
March 27, 2019

Since the legalization of cannabis in Canada in October 2018 there have been several recalls due to product contaminated with mold. Crop contamination can hurt a grower’s reputation and have negative impacts on their financial situation. Many growers believe that crop contamination is something that won’t affect their crop and don’t purchase proper equipment until they have lost a crop. With the cannabis supply shortages, it is vital to provide the highest quality product possible. We have designed a solution to ensure crop contamination does not affect growers and their business.

Proposed changes to the cannabis act
February 20, 2019

The government of Canada has recently released its proposed changes to the regulations under the Cannabis Act. These regulations include changes to the air quality requirements within cultivation facilities. The proposed requirements under the good production practices are: Building on existing air filtration requirements to prevent the escape of odours, there would be a new requirement to have a ventilation system that provides clean air and removes unclean air that may have a negative impact on the cannabis or ingredients. These measures, which would apply to both licensed cultivators and processors, are intended to prevent contamination, and are consistent with measures under the SFCR. Ensure your facility is compliant with the new regulations by installing Air Sniper equipment. * A full list of the amendments can be found here: http://www.gazette.gc.ca/rp-pr/p1/2018/2018-12-22/html/reg4-eng.html

Inverse Square Law
January 30, 2019

Ever wondered what makes Air Sniper different? One of the reasons our products are different from competitors is our design. When our product designer and founder was designing the Units, he used the Inverse Square Law. This law was used to ensure that the UV technology remains effective through the use of multiple bulbs and reflective panels to ensure maximum irradiation of all pathogens. Units not designing with the Inverse Square Law will be ineffective on passing air with very little irradiation effect to the pathogen.
