Gino™ - Destroy Coronavirus in the Air
Gino is a revolutionary air sanitiser that destroys Coronavirus in the air, making indoor spaces safer. Powered by ViraTeq™ the nanotech coating is proven and tested to destroy Coronavirus.
From care homes to schools, food production facilities to restaurants, GP surgeries to hotel rooms, Gino helps people live safer and breathe safer.
Gino has a sanitising air delivery rate of 14 litres per second or 50 m³/h.
This means Gino can create a safety zone of 2m around the device in 15 minutes and a radius of 4m in 1 hour.
In 1 second Gino can clean approximately a volume of two basketball balls.
In 3 minutes Gino can clean the capacity of an entire car.
The number of Gino units you require is best derived from the number of people that will occupy the space at any given time.
If you're working in an office, you'd have one device per desk.
If you're with friends, you'd have this in front of a group of 4 people.
Tests were conducted at the following Independent Labs. Test results available on request.
Gino Design Story
Gino from Smart Separations is a unique device which was developed as a fast response to the current pandemic. To develop the design quickly, Smart Separations had to rethink an air purifier and simplify it to its most basic components, taking away anything that was not related to destroying viruses or bacteria. This meant no fancy app, no disposable filters and no unnecessary sensors.
In the end they were left with three components: a washable filter, the body and a fan. They designed an object that was visually unobtrusive and can work without being noticed. Gino is a unique cylinder with small lateral spaces to remove and insert the filter and a series of vents in the form of a spiral to maximise airflow.
Scientific tests have shown a 99.9999% kill rate in a single air pass.
Won’t harbour bacteria or mould.
Doesn’t use LEDs, which always degrade and dim over time. Can be used both in the dark as well as the light.
Filter should last more than 5 years (if used according to instructions). HEPA filters have to be replaced every few months.
Easy To Live With
Gino is a low-energy device, only 2.5 watts, powered from a USB adapter. At 35 dB, it is as quiet as a library.
What room size will Gino cover?
Gino has a sanitising air delivery rate of 14 litres per second or 50 m³/h. Gino can cover a room of 5 m2 in 15 minutes and a room of 20 m2 in 1 hour. Another way of looking at this is that Gino can create a safety zone of 2m around in the device in 15 minutes and a radius of 4m in 1 hour. In 1 second, Gino can clean approximately a volume of two basketball balls and in 3 minutes it can clean the capacity of an entire car. The number of Gino's you require is best derived from the number of people that will occupy the space at any given time. If you're working in an office, you'd have one device per desk. If you're with friends, you'd have this in front of a group of 4 people.
Does Gino remove dust from the air?
Gino was not conceived to remove dust or other particles from the air. Gino was conceived to do one thing really well which is to remove microbes from the air around you. It might carry some dust with the air that is drawn into the filter but it is not designed for dust entrapment.
Do I need to replace the filter? How long does the filter last?
No filter replacement is required for more than 5 years (if used according to manufacturer's instructions) and no disposable filters are going to the landfill. A few times a year, simply remove, rinse off the dust, and return.
How do I know when to wash the filter?
When you start noticing dust on top of the filter you should remove it and wash it preferably in the dishwasher (the shortest programme should be sufficient, usually 30 minutes and with no detergent). When washing, the channels get cleaned and the efficiency is recovered. Make sure to switch off the device when removing the filter, wash the filter and let it dry for approximately 12 hours before placing it back in the case. The filter will then be as good as new!
