UVC-HAND, UVC-CLEAN AIR 2 and

UVC-CLEAN AIR PRO

New uv-fresh products

UVC-HAND

The handheld disinfection system UVC-HAND significantly reduces the microbiological contamination of surfaces like touch-screens, key-boards, desktops, etc. The disinfection effect occurs within a few seconds.

UVC-CLEAN AIR 2

The disinfection system UV-CLEAN AIR 2 significantly reduces the micro-biological and virological contamination on seats, handles, buttons and all surfaces in rooms and inside transport vehicles like buses, coaches, trains, airplanes, etc. UV-CLEAN AIR 2 is a UV lamp based ozone generator. As opposed to electrical discharge devices such as corona, barrier and silent discharges it does not produce any poisonous Nitrogen Oxides – NOx, only ozone. Ozone as a strong oxidizer, eliminates within tens of minutes, bacteria and viruses on all surfaces – including metal, glass, textiles and plastics.

UVC-CLEAN AIR PRO

The UVC-CLEAN AIR PRO has the same functionality as the UVC-CLEAN AIR 2, but with producing a significantly higher ozone concentration and is therefore predestined for larger rooms.

General information:

Human corona viruses were first identified in the mid-1960s. There are seven corona viruses that can infect humans. One of them is the novel SARS-CoV-2, which causes the disease Covid19. It belongs to the group of beta-corona viruses that cause acute respiratory syndrome (SARS).

In addition to visible light, the sun also emits UV-C radiation. However, these wavelengths are filtered out by the earth’s atmosphere (ozone layer). Thus, in the course of evolution, no living being, no microorganism has ever “seen” UV-C light and thus no protective mechanism against UV-C radiation has been formed. UV-C radiation has a killing effect on all microorganisms, regardless of the medium – air, water or surface. In the case of SARS-CoV-2, UV-C radiation destroys the carrier of genetic information of the virus – RNA (ribonucleic acid). This stops any further reproduction of the virus and the virus is rendered harmless.

The scientific studies of recent years have also determined the UV-C dose necessary to inactivate SARS-CoV. The latest independent research on the novel SARS-CoV-2 (University Hospital Frankfurt am Main, University of Miyazaki (Japan), University of Boston (USA), etc.) has only confirmed the previous studies – a certain UV-C dose leads to the destruction of these viruses. The UVC-disinfection devices of uv-technik meyer gmbh are designed and built on the basis of these findings.
