Larson Electronics announced the release of a far-UVC disinfection portal that kills 99% of bacteria, viruses, mold and spores. This sanitation portal features five excimer lamps and offers 222nm UVC output that is safe for skin and eyes. This portal offers instant-start and automated operation with a PIR motion sensor.
The disinfection portal features five 40-watt excimer lamps that offer 40 uW/cm2 UV intensity at 222nm UV wavelength. This disinfection portal features ozone-free lights with a lifespan of 1,000+ hours and emit light in a flood beam pattern. This powerful sanitation portal disinfects 99% of viruses, bacteria, mold and spores.
This UVC is ideal for occupied and high-traffic areas as the far-UVC is safe for human skin and eyes. This unit is made out of 304 stainless steel and powder coated for added durability. This device is compatible with 120V AC and 240V AC at 60Hz. This unit comes with 25’ of cord fitted with an industrial grade cord cap. Suitable applications include industrial parks, medical centers, labs, and more.
UV-C and Coronavirus
The coronavirus comes in many forms. During the spread of these strains (respectively), UV light was used as a reliable method of sanitation. The effectiveness of UV-C light in deactivating SARS-COV-2 extends to rooms and protective equipment, such as N95 masks. Maximizing UV light treatment requires using different types of UV devices to promote the reach and intensity of UV-C light beams.
Published scientific research and studies conducted by medical organizations have proven the effectiveness of using UV-C light to deactivate or sanitize various strains of the coronavirus, including the latest SARS-COV-2 strain. The mainstream, prevalent use of UV light in well- established industries, such as food processing, wastewater treatment and healthcare (hospitals), reinforces the viability of the sanitation method, making it a tried-and-tested solution. Reliability and peace of mind are the secondary benefits that come with UV sanitation, as this disinfection method has been around for decades.
To ensure proper disinfection, UV-C light intensity, duration, exposure and deployment should be carefully maximized. Using a variety of UV lights and devices, from portable UV disinfection carts and UV air sanitizers to compact UV handlamps and UV sanitation boxes, is recommended for a complete approach to sanitation on the field or in facilities. During the disinfection process, individuals should avoid exposure to UV light, as it can damage the skin and cornea. Proper safety equipment, including gloves, suits, masks, glasses and visors, must be used to prevent UV exposure.
