UVC Light Disinfection
UVC Lighting is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions. UVC refers to ultraviolet light with wavelengths between 200 – 280 nanometers (nm). Light in the UVC wavelength can be used for disinfecting duct work, sterilizing surfaces, destroying harmful micro-organisms in food products and in air.
Not only can Hughes Environmental help disinfect your facility with UVC, we can help verify that certain areas of your facility are clean with our COVID-19 hard surface testing. A member of Hughes Environmental will swab high-touch areas around your facility to detect the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus (COVID-19 or coronavirus) on surfaces based on the CDC 2019-nCoV Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel protocol.
UVC Light Disinfection for Industrial Use
Germicidal lamps are used to sterilize workspaces and tools used in pharmaceutical manufacturing, food production facilities and other production facilities. This method of disinfection uses a short-wavelength ultraviolet light to kill or inactivate microorganisms, leaving them unable to perform vital functions. Germicidal lamps are used to sterilize workspaces and tools used in biology laboratories and medical facilities.
This is cost effective solution for:
- Food & Beverage Production
- Pharmaceutical Manufacturing
- Semiconductor Manufacturing
- Other Production facilities
- 99.9 surface disinfection
- Sterilizes mold, bacteria, and viruses
- Disinfects coil & drain pan
- Improves HVAC efficiency
- Improves indoor air quality
Germicidal lights are simple, effective ways to curb bacterial and viral growths. These specialized lamps produce an ultraviolet (UV) light that disrupts growth and deactivates existing growths, aiding in the disinfection of surfaces, water and more. Using one in your production facility can help improve everything from air quality to the health and well-being of you and your occupants. By treating the air circulating in your heating and cooling system, UV germicidal lamps can kill mold and destroy airborne viruses and bacteria that, ultimately, lead to colds, flus and other illnesses. This can keep you and employees healthy.
In-Duct UV Lighting
In-duct UVGI systems are mounted inside AHUs or ventilation ductwork. When selected to produce appropriate irradiance levels, in-duct systems can be effective for air disinfection. The goal of an in-duct air disinfection system is to inactivate microbes suspended in the air (e.g., viable influenza viruses) as they move through the duct or AHU, so the organism is no longer capable of causing disease.
UVC Light Disinfection Wand
The UVC Light Disinfection Wand packages UVC technology in a versatile, hand-held device designed to deactivate surface mold, bacteria, viruses and yeast. This wand is ideal for food processing, healthcare, commercial and institutional environments. Approved by the USDA and FDA for surface decontamination, UVC has long been known for its ability to control naturally occurring microbes. The UVC Wand is suitable for a variety of specialized uses for surface decontamination and mold remediation.
