UVC sterilization mission module design and production

x lay ultraviolet visible light infrared

  • · It is a high-energy light with a wavelength of less than 280 nm and works to change the structure of DNA and RNA in cells.
  • · Pathogenic viruses, bacteria, and protozoa all have DNA and RNA, and UVC causes structural changes in DNA and RNA to inactivate viruses and sterilize them.
UVC sterilization effect
  • · The UVC sterilization effect is determined by the amount of UVC light intensity integrated during the irradiation time. Accumulated light amount = light intensity x irradiation time
  • · In the case of Rotavirus SA-11, 9.1 mJ/cm2 for 90% sterilization and 48 mJ/cm2 for 99.999% sterilization. It can kill 90% of all rotavirus within 1 square centimeter in time, and it takes about 5 seconds to kill 99.999%.
    However, the amount of UV light is inversely proportional to the square of the distance, and there is an amount of shaded or reflected light, so the actual amount of UVC applied can vary greatly depending on the design of the sterilization module.
