Loss of working hours
Every year, mainly from autumn to spring, employees fall ill due to an infectious disease such as the flu or a cold.
The UV-C Power from NetralAir neutralizes the air by killing viruses, bacteria and germs. This can reduce or prevent loss of working hours.
Risk of infection
Employees interact with each other. But this is exactly where the risk of infection lies. Often the employee does not realize that he is infecting his colleagues because he has not yet recognized any symptoms.
Viruses are spread widely via tiny droplets, such as when coughing, speaking or sneezing, and often remain suspended in the air for a long time until a new host (employee) enters the room and unknowingly becomes infected. Open-plan offices are most affected by this.
The viruses can also be transmitted when shaking hands or settle on objects when sneezing. Here they wait for a new host.
UV-C rays are part of the natural sunlight
If microorganisms are exposed to sunlight, UV-C prevents them from multiplying and has a „killing“ effect.The innovative technology of UV-C disinfection has direct advantages for the user: The technology of UV-C disinfection knows no chemicals, no toxic compounds and no formation of resistance. Unwanted microorganisms become inactive within seconds.
The ultraviolet radiation
Like visible light or radio waves, ultraviolet radiation is an electromagnetic radiation and cannot be perceived by the human eye. By definition, it covers the spectral range from 100 to 380nm and is thus directly related to the blue, visible part of light. The ultraviolet spectrum covers wavelengths up to 380nm and is divided as follows.
UV-A380-315nm "Black light"
UV-B315-280nm responsible for sunburn
UV-C280-200nm Disinfection effect
UV-C-VUV200-100nm Ozone formation
UV-C rays are filtered out by the ozone layer and HAVE A STRONG DISINFECTING EFFECT
At 100 to 280 nanometers, UV-C light is the shortest wavelength range of ultraviolet light. If the ozone layer is intact, however, this range of ultraviolet light is filtered out of the sun's radiation spectrum before it reaches the earth's surface.
UV-C radiation destroys the binding in the DNA, and thus the cell
Ultraviolet radiation is used to treat water, air and surfaces. Due to the speed of the reaction - Mikroben Microbes are inactivated within fractions of a second at a sufficient dose - UV lamps can be used not only to disinfect surfaces, but also to disinfect water, air or even air streams guided in air conditioning ducts.
Vor der Entwicklung von Laminar-Strömungs -Anlagen für Reinräume Before the development of laminar flow systems for clean rooms and the massive use of disinfectants that is common today, weak ultraviolet emitters working in continuous operation were therefore common in hospitals to keep the germ count low. The increasing Antibiotic resistance The increasing antibiotic resistance of hospital-specific germs could lead to a return of the well-known technology in the near future, since UV-C disinfection cannot develop mutation-related resistances.
Further information about UV-C disinfection
On the website of PMI Labortechnik GmbH you can find more information about UV-C disinfection and its fields of application.
Fields of application
- Food industry / production and sales
- Water purification
Air disinfection and sterilization
UV-C radiation is used in drinking water and waste water treatment. UV-C pool sterilisers are becoming increasingly popular. Algae growth can be drastically reduced and germs also have very bad cards.
Thanks to the UV-C technology, the chemical disinfectant "chlorine" can be dispensed with.
