What is UV
UV germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a process that uses ultraviolet (UV) light at a wavelength of between 200 and 280 nanometers (nm) to disinfect and purify air and surfaces. It is commonly used to eliminate harmful microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi that can cause illness and disease. UV-C light is highly effective at killing microorganisms because it is able to penetrate the cell wall and disrupt the microorganism's DNA. This makes it particularly effective against microorganisms that are resistant to traditional disinfectants and antibiotics.
How it works.
UVGI air purification systems work by circulating air through a chamber that contains UV-C lamps. As the air passes through the chamber, it is exposed to the UV-C light, which deactivates any microorganisms present in the air. UVGI air purification systems are a cost-effective and efficient way to improve indoor air quality, reduce the risk of illness, and help to keep indoor spaces clean and safe.
The Charli-5 UVGI air purification unit is specifically designed to improve the air quality in classrooms. It utilizes a five-stage filtration and purification process that effectively removes a wide range of pollutants, including viruses, bacteria, allergens, and chemicals. The air-handling unit that comes with Charli-5 is designed to blow purified air uniformly throughout the room, ensuring that every corner of the classroom is reached. The air delivery system consists of three supplied duct fingers that have directional openings on the bottom to gently direct the purified air downward and slightly backwards towards the return of Charli-5. This ensures that the air is distributed uniformly throughout classrooms, providing optimal air quality for all students and teachers.
Overall, Charli-5 is an effective and efficient solution for improving the air quality in classrooms. It can help to reduce the spread of infection and improve the overall health and well being of students and teachers.
What airborne diseases does
UV light kill?
UV light can be effective at killing a variety of airborne diseases, including:
What are the benefits of UVGI air purification systems in buildings lacking a mechanical ventilation system.
1. Improved Indoor Air Quality
UVGI air purifiers effectively remove pollutants such as bacteria, viruses, and allergens from the air, providing a cleaner and healthier environment for non-ventilated spaces.
4. Easy Maintenance
UVGI air purifiers are low maintenance and easy to use. The filter can be easily replaced and the UV-C bulbs need to be changed every two years.
7. Reduced absenteeism
UVGI air purifiers can aid in keeping building occupants healthy, thus reducing absenteeism.
2. Reduced Risk
UVGI air purifiers can aid in reducing the risk of respiratory illnesses and allergies caused by airborne pollutants.
UVGI air purifiers are relatively inexpensive, especially when compared to the long-term cost of medical expenses, absenteeism, and decreased productivity.
8. Fewer Chemicals
UV C light is chemical free so it does not harm the environment and does not emit any pollutants
3. Increased Learning
Building occupants who breathe clean and healthy air tend to have improved cognitive function, better concentration, and less fatigue, leading to increased learning and productivity.
6. Odor Control
UVGI air purifiers can help reduce unpleasant odors caused by bacteria, viruses, and other pollutants in the air, improving the overall classroom environment.
9. Compliance with Regulations
UVGI air purifiers can help commercial spaces to comply with regulations that mandate cleaner air in non-ventilated spaces
