What is UV-C Disinfection?


Briefly explained: UV-C Disinfection

UV-C light is short-wave light, invisible to humans, in the wavelength range between 100 and 280 nm. UV-C light does not reach the earth’s surface in nature because it is absorbed in the uppermost layers of the earth’s atmosphere. At a wavelength between 200 and 280 nm, UV light has a very strong germicidal effect. And it is precisely this property of UV-C light that is used in the technology of UV-C disinfection devices.


Why is UV-C light germicidal?

UV-C light acts on all germs, viruses, bacteria and fungi by directly destroying the DNA of pathogens. This prevents microorganisms from developing resistance. UV-C rays reliably eliminate bacteria, viruses and fungi by up to 99.9%.

UV-C light - a proven Disinfectant

UV-C light has long been used as a common sterilization/disinfection method for water, air and surfaces – a method that has been used in hospitals, laboratories and the food industry for years.


UV-C Disinfection - a valuable alternative

Caused by the current Corona pandemic, disinfection has achieved a high level of importance in all everyday situations and environments around the world and our lives can no longer be imagined without it. UV-C disinfection offers a valuable alternative to conventional methods. Only the disinfecting effect of UV-C light is used – no chemicals, no liquids, no other substances.

UV-C Disinfection – the resource-saving alternative

Surface disinfection with UV-C light is cost-effective, gentle on surfaces and prolongs their service life. Unlike chemical disinfectants, there is no discoloration, destruction, residues or unpleasant odors. At the same time, the environment is relieved.

Disinfection with light is residue-free and saves tons of plastic waste.
