What is Surface Sanitization

Surface UV disinfection has a long history of success but exactly what is UV surface disinfection?
According to the UV Germicidal Irradiation handbook, surface disinfection usually refers either to the disinfection of building and ventilation system internal surfaces or (and in our view more commonly) the disinfection of equipment and any material surfaces .
Contaminated surfaces are too often a source of airborne microbes which in turn often produce surface contamination. As can probably be easily seen, the interaction between air and surface contamination means that combinations between UV air and UV surface disinfection applications are often inseparable, most often in the healthcare , food sectors and now also for your home with tailor made solutions.
In a totally natural situation, germs are killed and bacteria and fungi are prevented from spreading to a certain extent by being exposed to everyday sunlight. The benefits of this commonly occurring disinfection process can be adopted and managed more effectively by the application of UV radiation in a sustained, controlled and measurable way.

 

How does it work ?

Germicidal Ultraviolet
A term that is often used is germicidal ultraviolet when referring to UV disinfection or UV-C light but simply put, what is it? UV-C light is germicidal – it is called germicidal because the way it works is to deactivate the DNA of the bacteria, viruses and pathogens and actually destroys any ability that they had to multiply thereby causing disease – even more than simply stopping the organism from reproducing the method will ensure that the organism actually dies when it tries to replicate.
Due to UV-C light’s rapid action, it can be used on moving as well as static surfaces.
UV surface disinfection systems are successful, simple, cost-effective and importantly, do not add chemicals or other potential risks to the mix. As demands for higher quality, are sought from the food industry they are now turning to UV surface disinfection technology to provide even higher food hygiene standards, whilst reducing its dependence on chemical disinfection.
Ultraviolet surface disinfection has many varied applications treating food products and packaging directly, as well as localised disinfection of the handling equipment and surrounding airspace.

Application
UV treatment offers major advantages over thermal or chemical methods, which may be incompatible with either the product or environment .
UV is an effective and secure way of disinfecting surfaces and the system is easy to operate and maintain, which brings down total running costs. UV treatment does not damage or modify the physical characteristics of your product. UV simply makes the product better by assuring a bacteria free environment and hence improving quality.

When was it used first ?

Ultraviolet-C Disinfection System Against Coronaviruses MHV and MERS-CoV… Coronaviruses were first identified as the causative agent of the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in 2002 in China, and the Middle Eastern respiratory syndrome (MERS) in the Middle East in 2012

 

What is Surface disinfection with UV lamps ?

Surface Disinfection
It should come as no surprise that UV light can be useful for disinfecting surfaces in healthcare facilities or any other spaces. In fact, UV light can destroy active viruses and other pathogens on a surface in just a matter of seconds. In this case, UV in healthcare facilities, for example, can be much more efficient and effective than other cleaning and disinfecting options.

In addition to stationary surfaces like countertops, tables, and floors, UV light is a popular disinfection solution for equipment. As with other applications, the UV light has the benefit of being effective but also dry and simple, unlike washing or bleaching, which can leave residue and moisture behind.
