UV light sterilization is an environmentally friendly method of killing bacteria, mold, fungi, and viruses without the use of harmful chemicals and does not produce corrosive materials or disinfection by-products (DBPs). As global leaders in germicidal UVC technologies, LightSources and our strategic partner, LightTech, offer OEMs the widest range of standard and highly customized UVC lamps and components available. Used in countless industrial applications, our innovative lamps offer safe, effective and affordable solutions, while at the same time, allow OEMs to comply with strict local codes and FDA safety regulations.
UV Light Sterilization Provides Vital Solutions for Industries
There are many industries where surface disinfection without the use of chemicals is critical and UV light sterilization can provide a safe, effective solution. One example is in the food industry where UV lamps are used for irradiation. Ultraviolet light sterilization kills viruses, bacteria, yeast and fungi in seconds, and can also extend shelf life and nutritional value. Applications include packaging materials, conveyor belts, transport containers, working surfaces, countertops and on liquid-sugar tanks to kill mold and bacteria.
Another promising new development has been with UV hormesis, which is a process that helps to reduce post-harvest losses by delaying the ripening of fruits and vegetables. The technology offers the potential to save a great deal of money in the future.
Furthermore, UV light sterilization effectively purifies the air without the use of hazardous chemicals. It is used to disinfect the air of transmissible agents, fungi, bacteria, viruses, dust mites and spores. UV germicidal technology is especially important in hospitals and other settings where it is integrated into air conditioning systems to sterilize pathogens that cause illnesses and contaminants that can aggravate respiratory conditions. In addition UV lamps are used to remove harmful or toxic chemicals produced in many industries and to reduce or eliminate VOCs and industrial exhausts containing solvents.
