Each individual unit sits directly in the air stream and can feature from 8 to 24 high output UV-C lamps supplied in modules of 8.
The number of modules specified will be dependent on the air volume which will dictate the amount of irridation needed.
UVGI inactivates micro-organisms by attacking their DNA, permanently destroying and altering the molecular structure, leaving them unable to replicate or grow.
Our UVGI range incorporates:
• UV-C lamps shielded by their module to reduce the collection of dirt on their surface thus extending their optimum efficiency.
• The ability to provide the units in simple format or fully monitored with each module of lamps able to provide a local alarm or a BMS signal if in fault.
Ultraviolet (UV) light is measured in wavelengths with the UVC wavelength within the range of 100 nanometer
(nm) to 280 nm emitting highly effective sterilization power. UVC germicidal wavelength at around 260nm is
the most effective to kill harmful microorganisms in the air and on surfaces. UVC light emitted at 185nm is used
in UV germicidal systems to produce ozone, which is utilized in air purification systems. Ozone generating UV
lamps are proven to eliminate odour in the air caused by volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as ammonia,
mercaptans and sulphides.
For UVGI applications we use non Ozone producing lamps
Germicidal lamps utilize powerful UVC wavelength to destroy disease causing germs including viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa and algae, effectively sterilizing and purifying air, water and surfaces.
UVC disinfection targets the nucleic acid of these harmful cells, rearranging the genetic information, or DNA, and rendering them harmless. As the UVC radiation is absorbed into the cells they become unable to reproduce or multiply to infectious numbers and are considered inactive or dead.
