UVC disinfection is a non-invasive, resource-saving, environmentally friendly and very effective supplement to conventional disinfection methods.
Safe disinfection of the air can only be carried out as such with UVC radiation. Other filter systems are incapable of achieving the same degree of disinfection of the air. Chemicals are not an acceptable option for disinfecting the air.
Generally Less Expensive
Disinfection with UV light is generally less expensive than costly, time-consuming and often inadequate disinfection with chemical disinfectants. For example, there is no need for the process of acquiring and storing chemicals; this lowers the costs and reduces the dependency on chemical producers (delivery bottlenecks for disinfectants during the coronavirus pandemic).
Down times are lower with UVC disinfection compared to chemical disinfectants: Equipment or rooms can still be used during the procedure (UltraAIR active) or immediately after disinfection.
The devices are installed permanently (hung from the ceiling with wire suspension or fixed with mounting rack to a wall). The air to be disinfected is actively conducted into the housing using a fan.
The air flow is safely and verifiably disinfected by the UVC lamps inside the housing, i.e. the UVC rays prevent viruses, bacteria, germs and other pathogens from reproducing and thus render them harmless.
Minimum 10,000 hours
The UVC lamps last at least 10,000 hours and need to be replaced once a year.
The devices can be used in permanent operation (long-lasting, safe for people, low energy consumption).
It can be proven that UVC light is capable of fighting other coronaviruses such as SARS-CoV or Mers-CoV. It has now become clear that a much lower UV dose (mJ/cm2) is required than for regular influenza viruses, for example, in order to render the SARS-CoV-2 ineffective.
Almost half of all infections occur via aerosols (i.e. through the air), making air sanitization a big tool in fighting coronaviruses.
Kills 99% of surface bacteria & viruses
When using UVC radiation, no discolouration of surfaces occurs, no residue is left and there is no impairment of odour. Unlike chemical disinfectants, no resistance is generated in the case of physical disinfection with UVC light.
Surface contact is avoided with this method. This makes the whole disinfecting process much safer than handling aggressive chemical agents.
