GERMICIDAL UV LAMPS
Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a highly effective method of sterilization that utilizes ultraviolet (UV) light in the short wavelength (UVC) to breakdown
micro-organisms. UV light is electromagnetic radiation that operates in the 2,537 Angstrom (254nm) range. UV irradiation destroys the nucleic acids by breaking their molecular bonds
within micro-organismal DNA which in turn removes their growth and reproductive capabilities and renders them harmless. This allows UV to be greatly effective on micro-organisms such as
pathogens, bacteria, viruses and molds.
The UV system designed into Airephase™ delivers the best and longest lasting UVC performance available at 5 times the output of conventional devices under standard operating
conditions 45f @550 fpm. Increased output, more reliable performance and a longer service life that is 3-4 times that of conventional lamps makes this an ideal combination for airborne
protection. The system produces no ozone or other secondary contaminants. Low life cycle cost compared to any other UVC product makes it both efficient and economical to run.
High output UVC energy eliminates and or reduces both surface contaminants and airborne microbial organisms that are the cause of the spread of infectious diseases, as well as mold
and mold spores, bacteria (including TB, Legionella, whooping cough, viruses including colds, various flu, measles and SARS).
Reflective UVC energy is created by the interior surfaces of the housing being lined with a pressure sensative adhesive mat that increases the reflective irradiance. This allows the
photons to be more active and bounce reducing the shadowy areas and thereby increasing reflectivity and efficacy.
