UVGI? What is that?
Updated: Feb 18
Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI/UVC)
► Disinfection of air and surfaces with germicidal light is a well established technology with demonstrated effectiveness against many pathogens.
► UVGI can be applied to airstreams and surfaces in HVAC systems.
► UVGI is an adjunct to ventilation and filtration of particulate matter, not a replacement.
► UVGI works by disrupting the DNA/RNA thus inactivating viruses.
► UVGI lamps can also inhibit growth and fouling on coils and reduce/eliminate the need for regular coil cleanings.
