Katharsis Installed at Kings Funeral Chapel

Katharsis units not only work alongside existing air conditioning units, they actively capture the bacterial contaminants in the air, including COVID and other viruses. Once captured from the thermal plume each person exhales the virus & exhausted air is drawn into the overhead ducting where the air purification takes place.

Utilising technologies not produced in Australia before, the contaminated air is treated and purified as it passes through the unit.

A unit feature of Katharsis is that they are active as they not only draw in contaminants, exude cleansed air, but also more importantly completely change the entire volume of the room with clean air many times per day.

Additionally our “back to Base” monitoring system measures air flow, CO2 levels, filter efficiencies and each unit reports back to the C6 Group team if adjustments or service calls need to be arranged. All of our clients receive performance reports of the efficacy of each unit enabling both peace of mind, knowing your room is clean and clear of air borne contaminants.

This active cleaning and drawing in of fresh, outside air is Kathartic to everyone in the room.

Australian Designed, Built & Owned

This Australian designed, built and owned technology, utilises Australian people to create local jobs. It is like the product itself – a one of a kind. 

Our Australian supply chain adds further value to our “Leaving it better than we found it” mantra.

The team at Katharsis wishes to thank the team at Kings especially Briohny Fitzgerald, Beth King and Michael King, for their support and belief in a true Geelong and Australian invention in the fight for pristine air quality.
