Light Sources and LightTech’s strategic partnership offers many high-quality germicidal UVC lamps for air purification systems in standard and customized configurations.
Germicidal UVC technology is an efficient and cost-effective method to effectively disinfect air with no hazardous waste or byproducts. It has growth potential in many markets, including residential, commercial, industrial, health care and education. The successful elimination of air-borne transmissible agents, fungi, bacteria, viruses, spores, parasites and dust mites is critical to maintaining health, especially in hospitals, nursing homes, methadone clinics, rehabilitation centers, TB clinics, schools, doctor’s offices or homes.
Remove harmful and toxic chemicals produced in industries such as printing, plastics and rubber, or wood and surface treatment is critical. Germicidal UV technology can reduce or eliminate VOCs and industrial exhausts containing solvents.
Germicidal lamps can be installed in any new or existing HVAC system (heating ventilation and air conditioning). UVC light, with most of the light energy focused at 254nm, is the most effective germicidal wavelength in the entire UV light spectrum. UVC light literally attacks DNA-based airborne pollutants and mold spores by breaking DNA molecular bonds, rendering them unable to reproduce.
Placed right above the air conditioning cooling A-coil or directly through it, the germicidal lamp offers maximum coil cleaning of mold and bio-films at the same time it disinfects the upstream air flow.
Benefits of Using UV light in HVAC Systems:
- Lowers energy costs by improving HVAC system heat transfer and increasing net cooling capacity. Reduces Maintenance: Continuously cleans coils, drain pans plenums and ducts.
- Improves indoor air quality as it prevents the spread of irritating airborne microorganisms and protects against infectious diseases.
Germicidal UVC Technology in Hospitals
Light Sources and LightTech’s germicidal UVC lamps for air purification systems reduce pathogens in the air supply. Hospitals have always presented a risk of infection to susceptible individuals because air-borne bacteria and viruses can remain active long enough to spread throughout the entire building via the HVAC system.
Hospitals can also benefit by using a direct sterilization approach for critical areas, such as surgical suites and procedure rooms. High-intensity UVC lamps can be switched on to quickly kill pathogens in the air and on surfaces.
