UV air disinfection systems are becoming more popular in a multitude of environments as people realize the effectiveness and cost efficiencies provided by UV germicidal technology.

UV Air Disinfection Benefits Many Industries and Environments

UV air disinfectionAll light is broken into colors and measured by wavelengths, with ultraviolet (UV) light having shorter wavelengths than visible light, making it invisible to the human eye.  UV light is further separated into UVA, UVB, and UVC wavelengths measured in nanometers, with UVC light delivering highly effective germicidal properties in the range of 100 to 280 nm.

UV air disinfection is benefiting a multitude of industries and markets with unlimited growth potential to many residential, commercial, and industrial applications. UVC germicidal lamps are used to disinfect water, surfaces, and air, providing highly effective and cost-efficient disinfection solutions. UV air disinfection systems are proven to improve the health and wellness of people in a variety of environments as well as helping industries to meet air quality standards and regulations.

UV Air Disinfection Systems for Residential Use

UV air disinfection systems provide many benefits in homes where sick children reside, elderly people, or those with a compromised immune system. Keeping the air in your home free from harmful bacteria and germs is important to keep our loved ones healthy.  Maintaining an in-home UV air disinfection and purification system is simple with HVAC installation.  This provides clean and healthy air with little to no maintenance required, especially with high-quality, long-lasting UVC germicidal lamps.

Only a professional should install UVC disinfection lamps in your HVAC system. Not only do UVC germicidal lamps help to disinfect and purify the air, they also help to protect your equipment by mitigating the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria on interior components like the cooling coils in AC systems.  UVC lamps can be beneficial in both furnace and air conditioning systems.

UV Air Disinfection in Commercial EnvironmentsUV Air Disinfection Benefits Many Industries and Environments 1

There are many commercial environments that are realizing the benefits of UV air disinfection. This is particularly important in hospitals, nursing homes, doctor’s offices or medical clinics where patients and visitors are already facing medical issues.  UV air disinfection systems eliminate viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungi, mold spores, dust mites and airborne microorganisms.  This is extremely important in these medical environments as well as schools and daycares where young people gather.

Several studies confirm the effectiveness of UV light in HVAC systems, such as this study published by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, ASHRAE, which concluded in a reduction of fungi in air handling units and confirmed improvements in the health of children who suffered from mold-induced asthma when UV lamps were utilized in schools.

Industrial Benefits of UV Air Disinfection TechnologyUV air disinfection

UV air disinfection is becoming more popular in industrial applications such as the manufacturing of plastics, rubber, and wood.  Industrial processes such as printing and surface treatment applications also produce harmful airborne contaminants and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).  Industrial UV air disinfection systems are proven to eliminate VOCs as well as purify the air that has been contaminated by a number of industrial applications.

UV air disinfection systems are very important to these manufacturing and industrial applications in order to meet air quality regulations and provide a healthier environment for employees.  UV disinfection technology is safe, with no harmful byproducts, and cleanses the air without the need to purchase, store, or dispose of chemicals. UV air disinfection is proven to reduce or eliminate VOCs as well as harmful solvents found in industrial exhaust systems.

LightSources Is a Leading Provider of UV Air Disinfection Lamps

LightSources and LightTech, together with several valuable partner companies, represent the LightSources Group, which is a leading global provider of UV air disinfection solutions. We design, engineer, and manufacture a wide selection of UVC germicidal lamps as well as custom-designed lamps and prototype solutions.

We design and engineer high-output quartz germicidal lamps that deliver up to twice the UVC radiation of standard germicidal lamps, configured with 15mm or 19mm OUV air disinfectionD for a T5 or T6 lamp.

We offer low-pressure and medium-pressure Mercury discharge lamps as well as Amalgam lamps designed with proprietary technology. Our low pressure Amalgam lamps are proven to deliver 3 to 4 times more germicidal power and stability in applications with fluctuating ambient temperatures.

Ozone lamps by LightSources provide disinfection in the air and can reach spaces traditional UVC lamps cannot, by traveling through the air to disinfect and remove VOCs. LightSources offers Far UVC lamps designed with 222 nm output for effectiveness with improved safety.

Our lamps are proven to outlast and outperform comparable UV germicidal lamps, with quick warm-up time and longer-lasting germicidal effectiveness. Our experienced lighting engineers are skilled in producing custom phosphor blends to meet the exact wavelength requirement for maximum germicidal effectiveness in your application.

LightSources is registered to ISO9001:2015, following a strict quality policy and is dedicated to continual improvement through research and development and delivering first-to-market, high-performance UV lamps and lighting solutions.
