LED UV: protective & effective
UV radiation from the Sun, if correctly dosed in terms of intensity and wavelength, can be highly effective.
UV technology, if applied to lamps, can be very useful in different fields, and is used differently depending on intensity and wavelength (UV-A, UV-B, UV-C). In particular, it can be highly effective in reducing the amount of bacteria, the virulence of harmful organisms and the presence of pathogens, in addition to breaking down volatile organic compounds (VOC), resulting in the minimisation of foul odours in general.
Our Research & Development team has been conducting in-depth studies on this technology for years; today, we can customise it according to specific needs and expectations, for the countless fields of application of UV LEDs.
Main applications of LED UV:
- Air and water purification
- Fruit and vegetable storage in refrigerators
- Sanitation of food production lines
- Preservation of materials and surfaces
- Microbial load reduction
- Elimination of foul smells
- Improvement of living conditions in confined spaces
This technology is increasingly necessary in everyday life, and today, it is made even more effective thanks to LED technology, which replaces traditional mercury lamps.
Comparison between the characteristics of UV LEDs and UV Mercury lamps
Since UV LEDs do not contain mercury, they are eco-compatible, with a longer life, and they ensure energy savings and less heat loss.
|UV LED||Item||UV Lamp|
|New, Light, Simple, Compact||Technology||Old, Bulky, Heavy, Complex|
|10,000～30,000 hours||Lifetime||2,000～10,000 hours|
|No Mercury, No Ozone||Environmental Friendliness||Mercury used, Ozone generation|
|Single UV Band, Customizable||Emission Wavelenght||Multiple Peaks|
|None||Heavy Metals||Mercury (20 – 200 mg)|
Solar radiation brings to our planet all wavelengths, including ultraviolet (UV) which is largely filtered by the ozone layer, protecting our health.
