During the COVID 19 pandemic, maintaining a hygienic environment in healthcare and commercial spaces such as hospitals, educational institutes, restaurants, hotels, shopping malls & others has become even more important for the health of many – customers & staff alike, due to the rapid pace at which the infection spreads. Healthcare facilities and hospitals have to pay particular attention to indoor air concerns. To add to this, hospitals are normally served by a centralized HVAC system, with ducts distributing cooled air to various compartments, wards, rooms, etc. The presence of microorganisms along with the Coronaviruses in the air, especially those from sick patients circulate freely from one area to another and result in cross contamination which poses a grave risk to patients with compromised immunity, along with doctors, nurses, visitors, and staff.
Hospitals with poor or ineffective HVAC systems are at a higher risk of incubating illnesses caused by airborne contaminants including COVID 19, and these illnesses will have a debilitating effect on the productivity of hospital staff as they will either have to work at reduced capacity or miss work entirely due to respiratory illnesses. Patients who suffer from diseases may be a source of contamination to others by virtue of spreading infection through their clothes, touch, and airborne transmission.
Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) for HVAC is a proven method for removing volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and for killing or deactivating bacteria, viruses, mold spores, and other pathogenic microorganisms that may be present in room air, including the novel Coronavirus.
Ultraviolet light is electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength of 254 nanometres which is capable of breaking molecular bonds within microorganismal DNA. UV technology is superior to traditional disinfection in many ways. However, proper validation is a prerequisite for the success of a UVGI Air Sterilization System.
UVGI is primarily delivered through two methods in HVAC systems in commercial and industrial areas:
Airborne contamination comes from a variety of sources and circulates majorly through the HVAC system. In-duct ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) systems treat moving airstreams in heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems by inactivating airborne microorganisms found within. Airborne transmission of diseases through HVAC systems is much more prevalent nowadays than previously encountered. Research has conclusively pointed out to COVID 19 spreading faster in indoor spaces which are airconditioned as compared to outdoor spaces with better ventilation.
With expertise in UV technology spanning more than 2 decades, Alfaa UVGI air disinfection systems have been awarded the prestigious ASHRAE ACREX Award of Excellence in the category of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) both in 2016 and 2017.
There are many reasons to choose Alfaa UV’s UltraDuct and UltraCoil UVGI solutions for your air disinfection in Commercial and Industrial areas.
