Rightsizing UV-C lamps for HVAC applications
Until recently, calculating the necessary dosage of Ultraviolet Germicidal Energy (UV-C) in order to maintain or restore HVAC/R cooling...
UV-C IN HVAC?
Microbial buildup, sometimes called biofilm, in coils, plenums, and other HVAC components is a common issue that can impact system performance and introduce contaminants into the air. Microbes can reduce system performance by as much as 30% within five years of installation if left unchecked. In some cases, this equipment is difficult to clean. UV lights minimize this buildup, allowing the equipment to run at its most efficient. The ongoing prevention of microbial buildup will also reduce maintenance costs.
