Ultravation manufactures several configurations of ultraviolet (UV) disinfection products
to meet any installation criteria. UltraMAX™ two-lamp UV systems are designed to treat
up to a 5 ton HVAC system or cover 3,500 sq ft.

Ultravation® UltraMAX™ products have been designed for peak performance in the cool
temperatures of the supply plenum of an HVAC system.

We suggest mounting the UV lamps and optional Re-Fresh™ Odor reduction module on
the exit or supply side of the HVAC system and before the ductwork branches off.
Installing UV equipment in the HVAC system return may degrade the media filter and/or
collect dirt particles on the UV lamp glass gradually decreasing performance. If there is
obvious microbial growth in the return duct, then installing the UV system (or a second
system) in the return can be the best solution.

However, caution must be taken to ensure that no light from the UV lamp(s)
can come in contact with any installed media filters or can be seen from
outside the HVAC system when it is running. Remember: DO NOT look at UV
light without proper eye protection.

Ultravation’s exclusive Re-Fresh™ Odor Reduction Module (optional) performs
continuous photocatalytic air processing, constantly reducing or eliminating hundreds of
common VOC odors while enhancing the germicidal effect of the system resulting in
clean, fresh, breathable air.

UltraMAX UV systems produce no ozone. No harmful by-products or off-gassing takes
place in the sterilization process or the photocatalytic process.

Important information about UV lamp replacements:

Replace UV lamps each year in order to maintain optimum effectiveness in the reduc-
tion of pathogens such as bacteria, viruses and microscopic mold. Lamps operating
after a period of two years do not provide adequate reduction of pathogens and
must be replaced. Lamps operating beyond 18,000 hours (two years) draw excessive
electrical current which may result in damage to the UV system. If UV lamp(s) have
been operating for more than two years, the system must be turned off until replace-
ment lamp(s) are installed. Failure to do so may void the warranty.

UL Listed. The health aspects associated with the use of this
product and its ability to aid in disinfection of environmental
air have not been investigated by UL.

It is recommended that this unit be installed and maintained by a trained technician:

WARNING: UV Hazard. Always protect eyes from ultraviolet light. NEVER
look at UV lamps in operation. Unplug or disconnect power before
replacing lamps or servicing.

WARNING: Severe eye damage or temporary blinding may occur.

WARNING: DO NOT operate outside of air handler. Mount lamp base
to duct first.

WARNING: No openings in HVAC system are allowed which would give
direct line-of-sight to the UV light.

In the event of accidental breakage or replacement of the ultraviolet lamp, please
ensure that the lamp is disposed of in accordance with local and state environmen-
tal laws regarding fluorescent lamps containing mercury.

Notice: All wiring inside air handling system in direct line of site of the UV lamp must
be shielded with aluminum foil tape or equivalent non-combustible material. When
installing this unit, select a mounting location that prevents ultraviolet light exposure
to plastic non UV-rated flexible duct liner or other plastic components with unknown
resistance to ultraviolet light. Ultraviolet light may cause color shift or structural
degradation of plastic HVAC components. If installing where UV light can directly
contact fiberglass duct board, contact manufacturer of fiberglass product for advice
on UV rating. If unknown, install metal sheathing or foil tape to completely protect
fiberglass duct board from UV light exposure.
