UV-C Disinfection Systems
UV disinfection is a technology that uses Ultraviolet light in the germicidal wavelength range between 200 and 300 nano meters. The optimum UV wavelength for UV disinfection is 264 nano meters which is located within the UV-C spectrum.
UV-C Light Halts Viruses DNA Replication
The powers of UV light Disinfection
When microorganisms are exposed to germicidal wavelengths, they are destroyed outright or rendered incapable of reproducing. The high energy associated with UV-C UV light is absorbed by the DNA of bacteria, viruses, spores and other pathogens. This absorption causes abnormalities within the DNA to occur, resulting in the microorganism being incapable of reproducing and infecting.
UV-C lights are used as part of our patented UV light disinfection systems to deactivate and destroy bacteria, viruses and molds. Unlike chemical treatments, this process of UV disinfection is environmentally friendly. UV lamps can be applied in a number of applications from water treatment to surface and air UV disinfection.
UV Lamps need to be handled and operated with caution. UV lamps generate radiation that is harmful and human exposure should be vigorously prevented. UV disinfection systems should always be operated by trained personnel who have been equipped with installation, operation and maintenance manuals.
