Air Duct with Germicidal UV Lamps
Live Organism before exposposure to UV Irradiation
Deactivated Organism after exposure to UV Irradiation
and outdoor air is full of airborne biologicals. Most are positive
forces in human existance, however there are some that can make
you sick. There are a few that are very dangerous especially to
the very young, senior citizens and people with compromised immune
systems. Diseases that can kill include Tuberculosis, Legionnaires,
Hanta Virus,, SARS and strains of E. Coli to name a few. Other examples
of bacteria that could be dangerous to some individuals include
chicken pox, measles, and influenza.
we live and work are tightly sealed with indoor air recirculating
several times per hour. Most buildings do not have an adequate filter
system to prevent the passing of these airborne microbes over and
over throughout a building. In addition, unclean and poorly maintained
HVAC ductwork can serve as breeding grounds for mold and fungi to
grow which can then sporalate throughout the building. Traveling
spores act as transports for bacteria to be moved throughout a building.
People are getting sick every day from this unfiltered air. Employers
lose thousands of productive hours because people literally seem
to pass sickness back and forth between themselves when exposed
to recirculating bad air.
using germicidal ultraviolet irradiation.
Ultraviolet energy has the ability to kill airborne pathogens. Germicidal
Ultraviolet irradiation as an air purifier is environmentally safe,
very affordable and easy to install with little maintenance over
the course of a year. Germicidal UV can be produced using UV-C lamps
and applied by installing them into the actual building HVAC system.
Mother Nature uses this process with UV rays from the sun.
UV systems are cost effective, with low operating costs and are
readily available for commercial or residential.
