Selected Products for Ultraviolet
Ultraviolet light is energy-rich light with a wavelength of 200 – 400 nanometres (nm). UV light is very versatile and can be used for disinfecting water, destroying harmful microorganisms in other liquids, on surfaces, and in air. The intensive UVC radiation, most strongly in the wavelength range of 254 nm, reaches the microorganisms and impacts directly on their DNA. By changing the DNA the cell division of the microorganism is interrupted – it can no longer reproduce itself and thus loses its pathogenic effect. With UV technology it is possible to destroy more than 99.99% of all pathogens within seconds, without addition of chemicals, without harmful side effects.
