Loss of working hours
Every year, countless employees fall ill due to the seasonal flu (influenza) or currently the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
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
Aerosols are the smallest particles that are produced when speaking, breathing, coughing or sneezing. These droplets are smaller than 5 micrometers and can therefore float in the air for a long time. If the aerosols are contaminated with viruses, the risk of becoming infected increases. The danger lurks particularly in open-plan offices where many employees work closely together.
UV-C rays are part of the natural sunlight
Setzt man Mikroorganismen dem Sonnenlicht aus, verhindert die natürliche UV-C Strahlung deren Vermehrung und wirkt „abtötend“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 Strahlen werden durch die Ozonschicht herausgefiltert und haben eine stark entkeimende wirkung
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 Strahlung zerstört die bindung in der DNA, und somit die Zelle
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
for table use, stainless steel
UV-C radiation has been successfully tested in laboratories as a method for decontaminating N95 masks exposed to MS2 bacteriophage and the influenza virus (influenza). Disposable masks can be disinfected up to 18 times.Objects that are frequently used in the health care sector must be regularly disinfected to ensure compliance with high quality hygiene standards. With the UV-BOX it is possible to disinfect equipment and instruments in a simple, immediate and safe way, without heat generation or the use of liquids and without any chemicals.
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.
