Why UV Disinfection

Microorganisms such as mould, bacteria and viruses are microscopically small, and they are everywhere.

Many microorganisms are necessary and even beneficial to our health, but others can contaminate our homes, workplaces, contaminate food and cause microbial decay of organic products. Others can make us extremely ill or can even kill.

In hot and humid conditions, the number of moulds and bacteria increases exponentially, and they can survive longer outside a host body on surfaces or suspended in the air.

UVC is a safe, non-chemical and non-residual disinfection method that is gaining favour worldwide as an effective solution to microbial control.

Advantages of UV Disinfection

With low operating costs, minimal maintenance and high reliability UV disinfection kills bacteria, viruses, and yeasts quickly and efficiently without the use of chemicals or leaving by-products hazardous to health and the environment.

  • Effective for all types of micro-organisms, including bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa.
  • UV is a chemical-free process which uses nothing except UV light – no risk of contamination!
  • UV requires no transportation, storage or handling of toxic or corrosive chemicals – a safety benefit for plant operators and the surrounding environment.
  • UV treatment is totally safe and creates no carcinogenic by-products common to other methods of disinfection.
  • UV disinfection products have low operating costs and are environmentally friendly.
