Germicidal UV Light Disinfection* Technology by Design Approach


Date: 26-03-2021

How ultraviolet light (UV) works as a disinfection technology depends upon the wavelength(s) being employed. The UVC band with a wavelength of 200-280nm has emerged as a highly viable solution for interior architectural settings such as offices, retail settings and schools, due to its proven effectiveness against both bacteria and viruses. 

Also, UVC is straightforward to apply in a defined area and its predicted effectiveness can be predetermined within a set of application design parameters and in reference to measured output data and laboratory test data. When an adequate dose is applied, UVC light can treat an area quickly. Utilizing UVC pathogen control can reduce the amount of chemicals that need to be used for disinfection purposes.
