  • How often should your UV lamps be changed and why?

    The frequency of changing a UV lamp for effective indoor air quality improvement depends on how you are using the system. Typically, a UV lamp being used primarily to disinfect the air circulating through a home or small office should be replaced every 9000 hours or approximately every 12 months...

  • UVC disinfection in indoor spaces

    UVC disinfection in indoor spaces

    Drs Andrew Buchan and Liang Yang speak to HEQ about the potential of far-UVC for disinfecting indoor airflow. The risk of contracting COVID-19 has been shown to be significantly higher in spaces such as hospitals and long-term care facilities, exacerbated by the presence of high indoor populatio...

  • Disinfection and healing effects of 222-nm UVC light on methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infection in mouse wounds.

    UVC radiation is known to be highly germicidal. However, exposure to 254-nm-UVC light causes DNA lesions such as cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers (CPD) in human cells, and can induce skin cancer after long-term repeated exposures. It has been reported that short wavelength UVC is absorbed by protein...

  • AIR PURIFIER BENEFITS AND HOW THEY WORK

    HOW INDOOR AIR PURIFIERS WORK Air purifiers use a system of internal fans to pull the air in your home through a series of filters that remove harmful airborne particles like dust, pollen and bacteria. The air purifier then circulate the purified air back into the room. This process repeats itsel...

  • Effectiveness of 222nm Ultraviolet Light on Disinfecting SARS-CoV-2 Surface Contamination

    A peer-reviewed study published in the American Journal of Infection Control examined the effectiveness of Far-UV 222 nm against the SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) on surfaces. In this study, a modest Far-UV 222 nm dose of 3 mJ/cm2 resulted in a 99.7% reduction in “viable” SARS-CoV-2...
