Air disinfection

UV-C is used for air disinfection in virtually every application, because there are always situations where microorganisms in the air can cause a problem and make people ill. For example in offices and schools, public transportation, entertainment venues, but also in the food processing- and agricultural industry. Airborne microorganisms can easily and effectively be inactivated by UV-C light.

Our UV-C disinfection upper air wall mount luminaires inactivated 99.99% of SARS-COV-2, the virus responsible for the COVID-19 disease, in the air of a room within 10 minutes. At 20 minutes, the virus was below detectable levels.

UV-C Disinfection is Not New

It’s important to note these products contain germicidal UV, which can be harmful to humans if used incorrectly, UV-C radiation can penetrate the skin and eyes.

In medical field the UV light usage is not new. In fact, the 1903 Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded to Niels Finsen for using UV light to fight the spread of tuberculosis.

After confirming UV lighting’s ability to kill pathogens, the next step was to find a way to replicate the UV wavelengths that would result in the disinfection of surfaces, air, and water. The first UV quartz lamp was wavelengths of ultraviolet light (UV-C; 100nm to 280nm) that have disinfection properties.

UV-C light inactivates airborne pathogens and microorganisms like mold, bacteria, and viruses. The technology is also referred to as UV Germicidal Irradiation or UVGI.
