UV-C for disinfection treatment has been known about for over 100 years and has been well established accepted practice since the mid-20th century.
UV Light is electromagnetic radiation, with a wavelength between visible light and x-rays.
UV-C systems have been proven to be an effective form of disinfection against bacteria, viruses, pathogens, parasites and other microorganisms, which are responsible for many diseases. The UV-C process works by breaking down the DNA of bacteria, viruses, etc, leaving it harmless, preventing growth and reproduction.
UV-C light disinfection works in just a short space of time, often near instantly, sanitising in air, in water, or on solid surfaces.
UV-C disinfection is simple to operate with a low running cost. Applying the dosage at a given location and distance from the light source, which is measurable with a specialised light meter.
This technology is ideal for use on areas with sensitive electronic equipment, in small intricate places where traditional cleaning equipment can’t reach, or on materials which would normally have to be dried after cleaning, such as chairs, clothes, PPE, carpets, etc
UV-C light disinfection systems can be designed so they are safe and easy to use, with only basic training required. There are no post treatment odours, residues, or dampness.
Today, typical common uses for UV-C disinfection are:
