WHAT ARE UV-C GERMICIDAL ULTRAVIOLET RAYS?

Ultraviolet rays are electromagnetic waves that are part of light. Electromagnetic waves are divided into three main wavelength bands, expressed in nanometers, nm: Ultraviolet rays (UV) 100-400 nm Visible rays (light) 400-700 nm Infrared rays (IR) 700-800.000 nm The rays UV are in turn identified in three bands:

UV-A (315-400 nm) with tanning properties;
UV-B (280-315 nm) with therapeutic and synthetic properties of vitamin "D";
UV-C (100-280 nm) with germicidal property.

HOW DO GERMICIDAL UV-C RAYS WORK?

UV-C rays (100-280 nm) have a strong germicidal effect and are most effective at the 265 nm wavelength. The germicidal effect of UV-C radiation extends to bacteria, viruses, spores, mold fungi and mites; it is mainly due to the destructive effect exerted by UV-C radiation on their DNA; UV-C rays in fact damage their reproductive system, preventing replication.
ARE UV-C RAYS PRESENT IN NATURE?

Yes, UV-C rays are present in nature because they are generated by the sun, but the ozone layer present in the atmosphere performs a shielding action preventing them from reaching the Earth's surface.

WHAT ARE THE MAIN ADVANTAGES OF USING UV-C GERMICIDE LAMPS?

Virus bacteria, mushroom spores, molds and mites are all sensitive and therefore can be eliminated with UV-C rays.
Microbes cannot acquire resistance to UV-C rays, which occurs with the use of chemical disinfectants and antibiotics.
UV rays are ecological. Environmental pollution is inevitable with the use of normal disinfectants. There is also the danger of serious risks that can occur by direct inhalation of the vapors or by ingestion of food products polluted by possible contact with the same disinfectants of chemical origin;
Where it is not possible to eliminate the use of chemical disinfectants (food, pharmaceutical, healthcare, etc.) the use of ultraviolet rays in disinfection allows to reduce the quantities with significant economic savings and greater attention to the environment, maintaining and almost always improving the degree of disinfection.
The UV-C devices can be installed on environments and machinery and be programmed to maintain the same degree of disinfection day and night, guaranteeing ideal conditions from the hygienic point of view without ups and downs. On the contrary, chemical disinfectants perform their action with maximum effectiveness only at the time of their use.
IS IT A SERIOUS AND SAFE DISINFECTION SYSTEM?

UV-C rays really work. The difference between a quality project and an application without results is given by the profound knowledge of the topic and the experience gained over time.
WHO RECOMMENDS THE USE OF UV-C RAYS?

Various bodies and organizations of global standing, such as WHO, EPA, CDC, ASHRAE and many others recommend the use of UV-C rays for the disinfection of water, environments and air conditioning systems.

WHO USES UV-C ULTRAVIOLET RAYS?

UV-C rays are used every day mainly in:

Food and pharmaceutical industries to disinfect air and surfaces of production environments, disinfect product containers (packaging), isolate "protected" areas for the production and packaging of products, such as clean rooms, from areas at risk of contamination. These interventions significantly increase the safety and conservation of the products we purchase with many health benefits, since they leave no residue and allow to avoid or reduce the use of chemical disinfectants, which can instead release dangerous residues on the products.
Hospital structures, to avoid the transmission, and therefore the contagion, of dangerous bacteria or viruses that may be present in the air or transported by contact by patients or visitors, such as TB and Legionella.
Air conditioning systems, to avoid the annoying and dangerous formation of mold and bacteria inside the air treatment plants or in the ducts, responsible for the Building Related Illness (BRl) or "Building-related disease" extrinsic allergic alveolitis, virus and fungal and rickettsial infections, bronchial asthma, humidifier fever, Pontiac fever and legionellosis, asthma and Sick Building Syndrome. Many armies have UV-C systems to prevent biological attacks such as anthrax dispersion in the pipelines.
Water treatment systems for human and animal consumption and for sanitary use, to eliminate all microorganisms that may be present in the water from wells, cisterns and aqueducts. This system is mandatory after an activated carbon filter, such as in water dispensers that are increasingly taking hold in the cit
