WHAT ARE THE KEY DIFFERENCES BETWEEN AIR AND SURFACE GUV PRODUCTS?
UPPER AIR GERMICIDAL PRODUCTS are designed for continuous disinfection of the air, supporting markets including hospitality, schools, restaurants, and fitness centers. The physical design of these commercial air purifier systems makes them inherently safe to operate in occupied spaces featuring an always-on, contact-free design.
SURFACE GERMICIDAL PRODUCTS are designed to disinfect high-traffic surfaces in unoccupied spaces and rely on redundant, UL Listed control systems to ensure that spaces are unoccupied before system activation. These commercial air purifier systems are well suited for high-touch surfaces where rooms can be disinfected during unoccupied, scheduled, downtime.
WHY NOT JUST GET A HEPA FILTER?
Adding a HEPA filter to your HVAC system is effective at removing pathogens from air recirculated through the commercial air purifier system.
Portable HEPA air purifiers can be effective in small spaces but can provide insufficient air change rates in larger spaces. Air purifiers can also be noisy and require the replacement of filters at regular intervals.
AER W is silent, has no filters to replace, and can be utilized to create an even & and consistent germicidal zone that can be scaled for small or large spaces.
HOW DO I SAFELY MEASURE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF LUMINII’S PURIFII GUV PRODUCTS IN THE FIELD? WHAT CAN I EXPECT OVER TIME?
System output can be measured in the field using a UV-C light meter and appropriate personal protective equipment to ensure that the person making the measurement is not exposed to UV-C.
WILL THE MATERIALS AND FINISHES IN A GIVEN SPACE DEGRADE UNDER UV-C?
Luminii can perform accelerated life testing on any specific materials of concern to provide rough guidelines for the life of the material when receiving a specific UV-C dose.
WHICH COMMON PATHOGENS HAS UV-C BEEN SHOW TO INACTIVATE?
*UV-C has been proven to kill or inactivate a wide range of pathogens, including:
- E. Coli, Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB), Staphylococcus aureus (staph), Salmonella typhimurium
- Adenovirus (can cause fever, coughs, sore throats, diarrhea, and pink eye), Hepatitis, HIV-1
- Measles, Mumps, Cold Viruses, Influenza, Varicella Zoster Virus (causes chickenpox)
