How does UV disinfection work?

 

To understand the best applications for Ultraviolet, or UV disinfection, it is important to understand a little about how this method of cleaning works. 

 

UV light is a form of light invisible to the naked eye. It is defined as light with a wavelength between 210-328nm. Importantly, this type of light is effective at killing viruses, bacteria, and fungi because it reacts with and destroys the DNA inside the pathogen's cells. 

The peak of this effect occurs at a wavelength of 253nm, so the most effective UV disinfection lamps are specially designed to emit light at this range. Such lamps are known as UV-C. 

 

In order for UV lamps to work, they must shine their light directly onto or through the substance being cleaned. This means that UV disinfection lights are especially effective for killing pathogens in water and in the air. Large volumes of air and water can be sanitized quickly and effectively with a UV lamp. Additionally, UV light is one of the most effective ways to kill airborne and waterborne pathogens because it uses no harmful chemicals and leaves no residue behind that users can drink or inhale. That said, it is also a great way to clean surfaces too, so long as the surface is free of dirt or debris that can block the light. 

 

It is important to realize that not all UV lamps are meant for disinfection. They need to be emitting light of the right wavelength and right intensity in order to destroy the DNA of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. If the intensity is too low, below 12 mJ/cm many organisms can repair the DNA damage. Consequently, we ensure that the products we offer deliver high enough doses of the right wavelengths of UV light. Listed here, you will find UV sources suitable for cleaning the air in homes and offices, portable UV lamps for cleaning the air in cars or when travelling, water purification systems, and handheld lamps for cleaning surfaces. 

 

 

Caution: While UV disinfection is an effective method for cleaning air, water, and surfaces, it is not suitable for cleaning wounds. Prolonged exposure can cause damage to the skin and eyes. 

 

Pros:

- Can kill viruses, bacteria, and fungi in the air and water. Destroys virtually all types of pathogens and many forms of allergens. 

- Can sanitize large volumes of air and water quickly. 

- Chemical free process- leaves behind no residue and uses no toxic substances. 

- Multiple uses- a single lamp can be used hundreds to thousands of times.

Cons: 

- Substance must be directly exposed to the light. Muddy water or surfaces with debris not effectively cleaned.

- Must use right wavelengths (UV-C) and at the right intensity to be effective. Many low grade products fail to meet one or both of these criteria. 

- Cannot be used to sanitize wounds
