Ultraviolet (UV) light is part of the natural light spectrum. At a wavelength of 254 nm (UV-C), the genetic material of viruses is very reliably destroyed. However, possible UV-C air purifiers must be designed in such a way that the radiation is only directed against the viruses and is completely harmless to humans. A further challenge: the air that is sucked in by the cleaners must remain in the device long enough for all viruses to be killed. If it flows back out too soon, viruses remain alive and thus active.
With virtual simulation for air disinfection with UV (UVGI) light
Air disinfection with UV-C light can kill the Corona virus in the air up to 99.99 percent. However, UV-C (UVGI) air purifiers must be designed so that the effective UV light is directed against the viruses and is completely harmless to humans. The air drawn in by the purifiers must remain in the device long enough for all viruses to be killed. Innovative simulation tools are perfect tools for designing optimal disinfection devices.
