What is Ultraviolet?
Ultraviolet light in the c-band range (225-302 nm) is commonly referred to as ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI), and is well known for its germ-zapping properties across water and surface treatment. Historically, airstream disinfection has proven less predictable due to underspecification of the UVC dosage and poor design.
How does UVGI work?
UVGI works by cross-linking the nucleic acids (DNA & RNA) which prevents the replication and growth of harmful micro-organisms such as viruses, bacteria, spores, moulds, yeast and fungi. To achieve a high inactivation rate against these, it requires the correct effective UVC dosage.
