UVC Rays = Reliable Technology
UVC rays work mainly by destroying DNA or RNA inside bacteria, viruses and fungi. UVC light has been used for decades to disinfect industrial surfaces and sanitize drinking water and is, in fact, particularly advantageous for sanitary use because it eliminates microorganisms such as the bacterium Clostridium difficile, one of the main sources of nosocomial infections.
UVC technology has been used for the disinfection of air, water and tools for over a century. It is therefore validated by history. In fact, as early as the 1930s, UV rays were commonly used for the treatment of air and water in hospitals and, starting from the Second World War, they were widely used in processing centers, in water treatment plants and in any facility that had to do with microbial contamination.
The UV-C Wavelength Damages the DNA of Pathogens
UV-C light, unlike UV-A or B light is capable of damaging the DNA of pathogens. UV-C disinfection is 99.9%-99.9999% effective in killing bacteria, molds, and viruses including Covid-19. Cleaning and chemical disinfection cannot eliminate all the dangerous pathogens on surfaces and in the air with the same effectiveness as UV-C light disinfection.
Improving Indoor Air Quality Through Upper Air Disinfection
- The air is continuously being purified in the occupied room.
- 99% of pathogens are inactivated when they are carried into the germicidal UV field by convection of currents of air.
- Warmer air from respiration and other sources rise carrying bio-contamination (pathogens).
- Cooler, disinfected air naturally circulates downward.
- Germicidal UV field projects across the upper room air.
