The patent pending UViaLite System is a revolutionary product that combines natural phenomena with proven UV technology to kill surface and airborne pathogens in RV gray and black waste holding tanks. A key component of the UViaLite System is our custom UV lamp housing. This housing doubles as an activated oxygen generation chamber and air intake vent. The housing is installed in a location beneath the floor of the RV such as a luggage storage area.
The UViaLite System’s innovative activated oxygen delivery mechanism incorporates the same principles used in generating electricity-free air conditioning with solar chimneys.
The solar chimney absorbs heat from the sun creating a thermal updraft that siphons warm outdoor air into an intake vent attached to the building. This air is cooled and it travels deep into the ground and back up into the building and out the chimney cooling the building’s interior space.
The UViaLite System incorporates the same principle using the RV’s rooftop vent pipe to create a solar chimney for RV waste holding tanks. The thermal updraft draws air into the UV lamp housing to slowly transport activated oxygen into the waste holding tank to sterilize surface and airborne pathogens. Clean, safe air is exhausted out the rooftop vent pipe.
When the moon replaces the sun and the solar chimney effect is no longer present, the heat generated by the UV lamp is sufficient to perpetuate the thermal updraft to continue entraining activated oxygen into the holding tank to work its sterilize surface and airborne pathogens.
Our team worked with a collective obsession to bring a simple and efficient design to a complex sterilization system that promises to dramatically enhance the RV’ing experience.
