How Can UV-C Disinfection Be Effective Against Viruses?

7 September 2021

The air we breathe, the water we drink, and the surfaces we get into contact with can significantly impact our health conditions. We are always at risk of getting in contact with viruses in public areas like offices, factories, stores, restaurants, schools, museums, and public transport. Among multiple disinfection methods, UV-C Sterilization is a popular and proven technique to sterilize air, surfaces, objects, and water, alleviating the risk of transmission of infections.

Why UV-C for Disinfection?

UV-C wavelengths are between 200 and 300 nanometers that makes them germicidal. So, UV-C is capable of inactivating microorganisms like germs, bacteria, and viruses. This quality makes UV-C energy an efficient, environmental-friendly, and chemical-free method to stop microorganisms from replicating in any environment.

Benefits of UV-C Light Disinfection
  • UV-C disinfection is a chemical-free process that doesn’t leave any residue.
  • There is no need for handling toxic or corrosive chemicals for UV.
  • The automated disinfection capability of UV avoids human error in the disinfection process.
  • Affordable sterilization method for both commercial and residential purposes.
  • In business, UV light disinfection protects your guests, saves your employees time and effort, and is cost-efficient.
UV Sterilization Process

The UV sterilizer uses the UVGI method of sterilization to kill viruses, bacteria & germs. Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a disinfection process that utilizes UV-C light to eliminate or disable microorganisms. This process destroys nucleic acids, disrupts their DNA, and makes them incapable of accomplishing vital cellular functions.

Applications of UV-C Disinfection
  • Air Disinfection

    To disinfect the air space, you can use UV-C light by having enough contact between air and UV light.

  • Water Disinfection

    Many commercial workspaces use handheld UV light sterilization for water disinfection and wastewater treatment.

  • Surface Disinfection

    Mostly used in healthcare centers, homes, offices, schools, factories, etc., to destroy active viruses and pathogens on the surface in few seconds.

  • Equipment Disinfection

    Utilized in places where many types of equipment are used, like Gyms, Hospitals, Offices, Warehouses etc.,

  • With a wide range of UV-C disinfection luminaires available, you can now mitigate the risk of viruses, germs, and bacterial infections in your surroundings within few minutes.
