Do UV Air Purifiers Eliminate Mold?


Ultraviolet (UV) lamps have been used for years for effective elimination of mold and mold spores. UV lamps combined with in duct air purification systems such as in HVAC and AC units effectively eliminate bacteria in air along with microscopic organisms, mold, mildew and viruses to prevent airborne contamination and illnesses. UV air purifiers improve the health and wellness of people in commercial and residential settings by sterilizing the air we breathe.  

Mold and mold spores can become a real problem as well as a health hazard. While eliminating a mold problem once it has been allowed to occur can take a lot of work with varying results, it is best to prevent the spread of mold spores and contamination in the first place.

Hospitals, schools, colleges, daycares, doctor’s offices and businesses all benefit from providing clean and healthy air for residents and visitors.  UVC germicidal lamps are designed to emit UV radiation at a specific wavelength, proven to instantly destroy harmful contaminants. UVC also lamps also eliminate foul odors while purifying and sterilizing the air.

Ballast Water Treatment Systems with USCG Approval

post 110When ships and cargo vessels take on ballast water in one port and release in another, natural ecosystems and fishing industries can be destroyed. Untreated ballast water contains marine organisms that are foreign to the ecosystems in which they are released and is known as one of the greatest threats to the sustainability of the world’s oceans. The Ballast Water Treatment Convention (BWTC) is enforced by the Marine Environmental Protection Committee, MEPC, a division of the International Maritime Organization, IMO. 

The BWTC requires all ships traveling through international waters to maintain an approved ballast water treatment system.  The United States Coast Guard enforces the proper treatment of ballast water and requires any ships taking on or releasing ballast water to meet USCG approval.  Ballast water treatment technologies include ultraviolet (UV) lamp systems, filtration and chlorination.


UV Ballast Water Treatment Technology

UV germicidal lamps are used in ballast water treatment systems to emit a powerful UV radiation which is a known water sterilizer.  UV lamps designed to emit UV radiation at a specific wavelength of 254 nm are proven to instantly destroy harmful viruses, bacteria and microorganisms.  When water passes through a UV lamp water sterilization system, UV light instantly alters the DNA of these living organisms and renders them inactive and unable to replicate. 

UV light is used in many water sterilization applications worldwide and is proven to eliminate harmful bacteria naked to the human eye as well as some bacteria that chlorine does not kill.  UVC germicidal lamps deliver powerful UV radiation without the use of harmful chemicals or byproducts. Additional advantages of UV water treatment includes long lasting, germicidal effectiveness with little to no maintenance required.

Benefits of UV Curing Polymers

post 107

There are a few different methods used for drying polymers in many commercial and industrial applications. Air drying, applying quick drying chemicals and ultraviolet (UV) light are common methods used to dry polymers.  UV curing is becoming more popular as an effective method of curing polymers which provides many benefits. 

UV curing lamps are designed to emit the proper wavelength of UV radiation which causes an instant photochemical reaction to certain polymers. UV light can instantly cure glues, epoxies, polyurethane, lacquers and many polymers. UV curing is  quick and effective providing many cost-saving benefits and advantages over other methods. 


UV Curing Provides Advantages over Other Methods

Instant curing – UV curing is instant, which improves cycle times and alleviates bottlenecks in material flow. Secondary operations and packaging are often a bottleneck area for product movement.  With instant UV curing, products can be cured while moving from one station to another for many cost-saving efficiencies.

Consistent process – UV curing dries polymers instantly for a consistent and reliable process. Unlike air drying, there are no irregularities due to evaporation and no chance of dust particles contaminating surfaces while drying. UV lamps improve product quality for less scrapped and returned product. 

No chemical byproducts – unlike application of chemical drying agents, UV curing does not require the use of toxic chemicals providing a safe work environment.

UV curing lamps are in high demand to improve many commercial and industrial processes. Be sure to work with a reputable UV lamp manufacturer to obtain quality lamps for the best return on your investment.
