UV Light Systems Designed by Air Cleaning Technologies
Biological and toxic volatile organic compounds (VOC) are real threats to all types of medical facilities. Traditional sterilization efforts, while effective on the surface, cannot address every form of contamination introduction. These mostly invisible threats are generally not recognized until after people become sick. What can you do to maintain a sterile indoor environment?
UV-C light actually kills microorganisms by scrambling their DNA (while producing no harmful byproducts), thus preventing them from reproducing.
The Right Solution At The Right Time
UV-A and UV-B light frequencies are present in sunlight. these are the light frequencies that cause sunburn. UV-C light is a higher frequency which is filtered out by the Earth’s atmosphere. This means that microorganisms have no defense against it.
Volatile Organic Compounds, or VOCs, are the source of nearly all odors and include toxic vapors such as acetone, toluene, and formaldehyde. Our technology combines UV-C light with photocatalytic activated carbon cells that neutralize VOC’s.
A Variety of Applications
Air Cleaning Technologies can install UV-C light technology to reduce Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs), eliminate mold and biofilm on coils and sterilize airborne pathogens. UV-C light neutralizes toxic and odor-causing VOCs. In addition, it improves HVAC efficiency and reduces your maintenance costs while extending the life of your HVAC system.
From coil disinfection to airborne disinfection and surface disinfection for unoccupied spaces, Air Cleaning Technologies offers a variety of applications designed with your needs in mind.
We also have systems specifically designed for ice and water dispensers.
UVGI is a Safe, Chemical-Free Disinfection
Air Cleaning Technologies offers Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation(UVGI), a well-established disinfection technology. This safe and scientifically proven application is used extensively in water treatment, food processing, and air purification systems. Medical facilities throughout the world recognized the major benefits of this innovative technology in many ways, including:
- Significantly reduced the spreading of dangerous airborne pathogens through HVAC systems.
- Reduced maintenance costs
- Extended life of HVAC systems
- simplified sterilization surfaces in unoccupied rooms
- Effective disinfection of ice makers and ice and water dispensers
Conventional Filtration Is Not Enough
Airborne contaminants generally fall into one of three classifications: Particulates, VOCs, or Mold and Germs. Conventional filtration applications are effective against particulates, such as dust. However, they are totally ineffectual on VOCs and mold and germs.
The UV-C light used by Air Cleaning Technologies is scientifically proven effective against airborne and service biological contaminants. This award-winning technology neutralizes odor-causing and potentially toxic volatile organic compounds.
