UV-C Disinfection Systems for HVAC
Indoor air quality can be more harmful to your health than urban air pollution. Dangerous microorganisms breed and nest inside air filters and create Petri dish-like biofilms, where they can grow inside vents, shafts, and other surfaces. Systems like this are hard to maintain over time especially in larger or older buildings where antiquated systems are not designed with sterility in mind.
Examples of UVC applications in an HVAC system
Air conditioning systems and especially air handling units (AHU), are the perfect microcosm for the growth and distribution of microbial organisms, pathogens, spores, and molds. Air recirculation, temperature fluctuations, and humidity allow them to combine with each other in complex ways and settle all over surfaces inside the AC system in the form of an unpleasant biofilm. This biofilm adheres particularly in between the fins of heat exchangers or coils, it settles in water collection tanks and buries into filters inside ducts. A biofilm of less than 0.5 mm can reduce system efficiency by up to 40%.
Light Progress Ultraviolet Germicidal Devices can solve all HVAC hygiene and efficiency problems because:
COMPLETELY ELIMINATES THE MICROBIAL CHARGE
Kills bacteria such as Legionella and TB, viruses, molds, and mites, which contaminate the air and surfaces.
IMPROVE THE EFFICIENCY OF UTA, SAVING ENERGY
UV-C systems keep the system clean, preserving the performance of all components and their operation.
EASY AND USER-SAFE WAY TO GUARANTEE HIGH LEVELS OF AIR QUALITY
All this avoiding the need for continuous and expensive cleaning.
THE MOST ECO-FRIENDLY METHOD
Chemicals clean ups create resistant microorganisms strains and often leave residual by products that damage our waterways and ecosystems.
VERSATILE FOR ALL INDUSTRIES AND RESIDENTIAL USE
Anywhere there are air ventilation systems, air quality and maintenance can be a health concern. Light Progress products can quickly improve the air you breathe.
EASIER TO USE AND MAINTAIN THAN TRADITIONAL MODELS
Our team will size and design the solution that best suits your needs with our specific software. Just change the bulb once a year.
