Ultraviolet light has a wavelength immediately shorter than the light visible to the human eye and immediately longer than that of X-rays. For years, we have studied UV technology applied to LED lamps, since 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 minimisation of foul odours in general. Why are they so interesting? Ultraviolet lamps are particularly interesting in that they are able to destroy organic and inorganic molecules, or kill or inactivate viruses and bacteria, thus making it unnecessary to use toxic chemicals that can leave residues. Germicidal irradiation with ultraviolet rays appears to be a highly effective method for sanitising, hygienising and disinfecting the air and the surfaces of materials. An even more “extreme” use of ultraviolet light in its shorter wavelengths can even destroy the DNA or RNA of bacteria and viruses, leaving them unable to perform some of their vital cellular functions, with the resulting total sterilisation of water and surfaces.
The fields of application of this new technology are many:
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 inside confined spaces
Ultraviolet rays are divided according to their wavelength into UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C, and for each sector of application there is a recommended type to use. One of our priorities today is therefore the production of UV LED lamps and the development of customized solutions responding to the needs of each customer, in different areas of application.
UV technology can become increasingly important in our daily lives, and is made even more effective thanks to the combination with LED technology since, compared to traditional UV lamps, LED lamps turn out to be even more compact, more efficient, free of mercury or ozone, and therefore, safer and less polluting, and finally, they have a much longer average life of over 30,000 hours as opposed to 10,000 hours for UV mercury lamps.
