UV disinfection or UVGI (Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation) is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet light (UV-C), and is proven to kill 99.99% of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other pathogens. UVGI works by breaking down chemical bonds and scrambling the structure of DNA, RNA and proteins which leaves microorganisms unable to multiply. When a microorganism is unable to multiply, it is considered dead since it cannot reproduce within a host and is no longer infectious.
The effective range for sterilization is about 254 nanometers (as shown below), which is what our UV-C lamps emit. Sterilization effectiveness is also determined by the total energy applied which is affected by the length of exposure time and the distance from the light source. To ensure efficiency, our process involves using a heavy-duty measuring laser to determine the square footage of the area being sterilized. This allows us to properly calibrate our UV-C tower to ensure the area is sterilized completely and efficiently.
To date, ultraviolet disinfection has been mainly used for medical sanitization. We are proud to provide and offer you the same UV-C technology to achieve this incredible, medical level sterilization and disinfection solution.
