Airborne microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria, yeasts and mold are especially present in heavily frequented areas such as airports, hospitals and theaters.
They jeopardize the health of people, contaminate raw materials, and cause food to spoil,
UV radiation reliably reduces the germ load and improves hygiene and storage conditions.
Disinfecting air in the supply air ducts ensures efficient reduction of microorganisms for the long term.
In particular, short-wave UV radiation has a strong bactericidal effect. The radiation is absorbed by the microorganisms' DNA destroying its structure. This inactivates the living cells.
