What is UVGI?

UVGI, or Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation, is a type of lighting that involves the use of Ultraviolet

Light the wavelengths of 220~280nm for air and surface germicidal disinfection. In other words,

these are special devices that ut


ilize UV light to breakdown and otherwise make infective

organisms inactive by changing their cellular structure. Moreover, when coupled with a filtration

system, these devices can produce UVC light that is strong enough to make the air and/or water

system inhospitable to organisms such as mold, bacteria, viruses and other potentially harmful

pathogens.


How Does This Relate to UVC Lights?

In general, UVC Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are the power behind the UVGI's ability to use

energy as a means of disrupting the DNA of a wide array of organisms and making them

harmless to the human body. Emitting UV at peak Germicidal effectiveness of near 265nm,

UVC LEDs have long life cycles of over 30,000 hours, while also containing no hazardous

materials. They are also durable and shatterproof. In terms of UV light sterilization time, they

only take seconds to minutes depends on the treated area to be effective.
