Last Updated on December 21, 2023Germicidal Ultraviolet air disinfection is a highly effective way to destroy microorganisms including: virus, bacteria, and mold spores. As the air stream and surfaces are exposed to the germicidal ultraviolet light, the genetic material of the microorganism is destroyed or deactivated. This method of air purification is ideal for many applications because it is economical, safe, fast and easy with simple use and maintenance.
Applications for Ultraviolet Air Disinfection
Ultraviolet Air Disinfection with Upper Air Disinfection Equipment (for use in commercial and industrial applications)When duct installation or room air sanitizers are not the most ideal, germicidal ultraviolet light can be utilized with fixtures designed for upper air disinfection. The principle of application is to purify the upper air of an occupied room in order to reduce the occupants’ risk associated with infectious airborne microbes. Atlantic Ultraviolet’s Hygeaire ® fixtures are designed to project the germicidal ultraviolet rays across the upper room air, thereby destroying bacteria and virus that is carried into the ultraviolet field by convection currents of air circulation. Ultraviolet upper air disinfection equipment is ideal for hospitals, laboratories, clean rooms, operating rooms, ICU’s, burn centers, doctors offices, and homeless shelters.
Ultraviolet Air Disinfection with Air Duct Systems (For use in residential, commercial and industrial applications)Ultraviolet air duct disinfection fixtures can be used in two types of applications in HVAC equipment: treatment of the airstream or treatment of the surfaces within the air-handler. With the proper system design and installation, the moving air can be disinfected with germicidal ultraviolet light. Typical residential systems are sized for a minimum, nominal 80% bacteria deactivation rate, commercial applications for 90%, and up to a 98% deactivation rate essential for hospitals and pharmaceutical laboratories. AeroLogic® fixtures are designed to install inside new or existing HVAC air ducts. They deactivate airborne microbes inside the ducts so that the air entering the room is free of bacteria, mold, and virus.
Ultraviolet Air Disinfection with Room Air Sanitizers (For use in residential, commercial and industrial applications)A germicidal ultraviolet alternative to the procedures discussed above uses self-contained exposure chambers, also referred to as room air sanitizers. SANITAIRE ® Fixtures are available in a number of different configurations to adapt to virtually any setting. Ultraviolet room air sanitizers can be mounted in a ceiling, on a wall, or are available for portable or mobile use. Air is drawn into the fixture through a washable, electrostatic, particulate filter and forced into an ultraviolet exposure chamber where it is irradiated by germicidal ultraviolet light. Purified air leaves the exposure chamber through the louvered exhaust panel. Depending on the size of the room and air changes per hour required by the application, fixtures can be sized accordingly. Ultraviolet room air sanitizers are excellent for homes, offices, food processing, pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities, dairy plants, bakeries, homeless shelters, prisons, auditoriums, waiting rooms, and hospitals.
Made in the USA, the UV Air & Surface Disinfection Systems from Atlantic Ultraviolet Corporation® are constructed of the highest quality materials and use germicidal ultraviolet lamps to purify water. They have many optional accessories available, giving them flexibility for virtually any application.For more information on our Upper Air, Air Duct, or Ultraviolet Room Air Disinfection Equipment such as the Hygeaire ®, SANITAIRE ® or AeroLogic® purifiers, visit our overview page, download the owner’s manuals from our PDF library, or check out our Ultraviolet Air Purifier Comparison Chart.
