Aircraft Cabin Ozone Converters

BASF's Deoxo offerings are low-cost, lightweight, easy-to-install units that help maintain a healthy cabin environment and provide improved comfort for passengers, pilots and flight attendants.

The air at high altitude contains significant levels of ozone. If left unchecked, atmospheric ozone enters aircraft through air conditioning ducts. Ozone exposure is known to cause adverse health effects: Some symptoms attributed to "jet lag" or "air sickness" may actually be caused by ozone. Persons exposed to ozone can experience headaches, fatigue, shortness of breath, chest pains, coughing, and irritation of the eyes, nose or throat.

BASF also offers Deoxo technology to reduce both harmful ozone and volatile organic compounds [VOC] in aircraft cabin air. This technology improves passenger perception of air quality by removing certain hydrocarbon compounds responsible for unpleasant odors such as jet fuel smell in the aircraft cabin while at the gate, taxiing and during take-off.

Since the FAA first set ozone standards, Deoxo catalytic converters have been the number one choice of airlines and aircraft manufacturers for many reasons:

  • Efficient ozone conversion — Eliminate adverse health effects for passengers or crew
  • Low pressure drop — Keeps energy costs low and allows use in existing air systems
  • Lightweight and long life — Ensures economical operating costs
  • Small size — Allows for quick and easy installation
  • Proven technology — BASF has over 30 years of experience in ozone converter technology
