Surface Disinfection With UV Light
With the increasing population in the world, epidemics are also increasing. In this context, the most important issues today are complying with individual and social hygiene rules. We have to maximize the level of knowledge and practice individually and socially to protect people from epidemics.
The Importance of Disinfection
With the Coronavirus, we have seen again that pathogens like viruses and bacteria are a part of our lives. These viruses and bacteria negatively affect human and public health. Perhaps the most essential issue in this process is to keep in mind that epidemic diseases are always disasters that can happen to us. Therefore, we must attach utmost importance to individual and social hygiene rules.
Although vaccination is the most critical practice in preventing epidemic diseases, we can limit or prevent the spread of the epidemic by following the hygiene rules of the individuals. In this way, we can obtain the necessary time for vaccine development while health systems survive.
After Covid-19, individual and social disinfection and sterilization have become an indispensable part of our lives. While people follow the hygiene rules outside, there are disinfection systems in almost every part of our lives. These devices have an essential place for personal and social hygiene with the disinfectants provided.
While businesses try to keep their places safe from viruses and bacteria, they use chemicals for disinfection. However, chemical products cause visual pollution with the residues left on the surfaces and must be cleaned after application.
The methods applied on the surfaces of the objects for sterilization are called surface disinfection. Contamination risk is minimized by sterilizing contact areas with chemical or UVC rays in surface disinfection.
Due to the difficulty of using chemical disinfection systems and the fact that they can only perform surface sterilization, their use should be reduced as much as possible and alternative disinfection systems should be used.
As is known, viruses can remain suspended in the air and surfaces for a long time. Chemical disinfection systems are insufficient for air disinfection because they are only effective on surfaces.
UVC Technology in Surface Disinfection
The fastest way to prevent epidemics is through vaccines. But in epidemics, scientists are fighting against time. As a society, we should not forget that we can slow down the pandemic rate, we save time for the health system and scientists.
The fastest method to prevent the epidemic is to provide surface and air disinfection in places where human traffic is very high. While chemical disinfection processes provide protection only on surfaces, they are insufficient for air disinfection.
We can use UVC rays to disinfect the indoor air where chemical disinfection is insufficient. We would like to inform you a little more about this technology.
Disinfection with UVC Rays
UVC rays for disinfection are not a new technology that has entered our lives with Coronavirus. Although it is not known by the public, the professionals know the effects of UVC and effectively use it for decades. It is more widely used in the water treatment industry, food industry, industrial applications and of course in Healthcare settings.
Perhaps the highest application area of UVC is medical settings. So, what was the reason for its use in medical applications, especially?
Professionals choose to use UVC technology in medical applications because their sterilization power is very high and at the same time it can kill many pathogenic microorganisms. One of the reasons for preference is that it is much easier to use, as it does not leave any residue or by-product on the surfaces used.
UVC rays are a product that does not harm people and the environment when used correctly. The important point here is that it should be used by the conditions of use. It can cause serious health problems in direct human contact.
Why Should I Choose Disinfection UV Systems?
The source of UVC rays on earth is the sun. They leave no residue on the surface compared to chemical disinfection, and therefore the surface does not need to be cleaned again after the application. In short, its application is simple. You can apply it directly to the surface to be disinfected.
In addition, UVC rays are one of the rare disinfectants that are effective on almost all harmful microorganisms. It is a unique method that can neutralize all microorganisms depending on the wavelength, power and application time.

UV-STICK SURFACE DISINFECTION TOWER
UV STICK E2/75H-ST-NX-NT is a commercial-grade dual lamp germicidal device with a control timer panel and four wheels for easy mobility. It works on the principle of direct radiation at 360 degrees and sterilizes irradiated air and surfaces. The UV-C lamps, with an emission peak at 253.7 nm (nanometres), have a strong germicidal effect against micro-organisms (moulds, bacteria and viruses). UV-STICK can be operated within many target zone environments to achieve deep disinfection of air and surfaces.
