WHAT IS UVC AIR PURIFICATION?
UV air purifiers are designed to use short-wave ultraviolet light (UVC) to inactivate airborne pathogens and microorganisms like mold, bacteria and viruses. Theses share the same principles as all air purifiers: to reduce indoor air pollutants. The technology is also referred to as UV germicidal irradiation, or UVGI air purifiers. As air is forced through the device, it passes UV lamps, which disinfect the air by means of germicidal irradiation.
UVC light air purifiers are generally a combination of a forced air system and another filter (like a HEPA or carbon filter). As a result, the UVC light of system works together with other processes to clean the air. Ambient, in-house air is forced through the unit and ventilated through a chamber with bulbs emitting light within the UVC frequency. The UVC lamp is usually placed downstream of a filter in a portable air purifier. Various factors such as the type of UV lamp, humidity and temperature can affect its performance.
