Garbage Doctor® 4000

Air Purifier for Garbage Rooms and Chutes

The Garbage Doctor® 4000 has been designed for treating garbage rooms and garbage chutes in small-medium sized apartment buildings. For larger buildings, we will use our Garbage Doctor® Ozone or Garbage Doctor® Duo systems if scenting is also required.

Being part of our ‘dual air purification’ product range, it combines two separated purifiers within a single piece of equipment.

The first air purifier is an ultraviolet Ozone generator, which is generally installed to deliver Ozone in a targeted way into the garbage chute, and garbage bins or compactor/carousel. 

The second purifier uses a Germicidal UV-C light-wave which is deadly to forms of life at the micro-organic level (bacteria, viruses etc). Additionally a process called Photo Catalytic Oxidation is combined, which provides powerful treatment for foul air as it passes through the steriliser.

Installation Example - How Does it Work?

The Garbage Doctor® 4000 (‘A’) is made from stainless steel and is mounted on the wall of the bin room. This equipment is a dual air purification system. The bottom part of the cabinet includes an Ultraviolet Ozone generator with filtration. The upper part contains a separate chamber utilising Germicidal UV-C light and Photo-Catalytic Oxidation (PCO).

Air Purifier 1: Ozone (Targeted Germicidal and Odour Control)

In the above example, Ozone is dispersed from the cabinet via a grey PVC pipe, this pipe goes above the recycling and wet-waste bins, then into the garbage chute. There are small holes drilled in the pipework above the bins, which release Ozone just where it is needed. Targeting Ozone in this way – at the source of the odours and pathogens (in this case, the rubbish bins) provides a best-practice of odour neutralisation and germicidal control, before foul air is sucked up the chute. The amount of Ozone being created is completely adjustable, and is tailored to suit each individual site.

Ozone is a powerful deodorising and germicidal control agent, which has been proven effective against an enormous range of microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, etc). Ozone also physically destroys odours by a processed called oxidation (without masking). Our customers generally notice a difference within about 15 minutes of installation.

Air Purifier 2: Germicidal UV-C and Photo Catalytic Oxidation

The upper portion of the Garbage Doctor® 4000 contains a separate internal air purifier to the Ozone system. Air within the bin room is exposed to a powerful Germicidal UV-C light. This light-wave is deadly to forms of life at the micro-organic level (i.e. bacteria, viruses etc). The ultraviolet light also activates a special internal coating within the purifier, that initiates a process called Photo Catalytic Oxidation (PCO). PCO creates a powerful oxidising agent which further helps to treat harmful microoganisms in the air and destroy odours.

Because there are limits to the amount of Ozone which can typically be used in occupied garbage rooms, this dual air purification configuration provides additional treatment than what is possible using Ozone (or a combination Ozone/Germicidal-UVC) system alone.

Garbage Doctor® 4000 - Other Installation Examples

Installation configurations will vary from site-to-site. The Garbage Doctor® equipment is well suited and has been installed on a large range of apartment building chutes, loading docks, grease traps and waste management systems, including: rubbish bins, carousel and compactors, from manufacturers such as: Elephants Foot, WasteTech, JJ Richards, Wanless, James Hardie, JD MacDonald etc. 

The Garbage Doctor® 4ooo is available to purchase outright or on a fully inclusive rental throughout Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Airlie Beach & Tweed.
