A STUDY INTO 222 nm FAR-UVC

EMERGENCE OF 222 nm FAR-UVC

AS A SAFE DISINFECTION TECHNOLOGY

While most people are aware of UVC disinfection technology, only a few know much about the 222 nm Far-UVC light. What still remains even less explored is its effectiveness in killing harmful pathogens. Studies over the years have highlighted the significance of 222 nm Far-UVC light in indoor disinfection.
Far-UVC, though a subset to UVC light, is equally potent in destroying viruses and bacteria while causing no harm to human eyes and skin.

Far-UVC (222 nm) successfully destroys deadly viruses, drug-resistant bacteria, and other microbes.

Far-UVC sterilizers are mercury-free with minimal ozone emission

Far-UVC at wavelength 222 nm do not harm the mammalian skin

Far-UVC disinfection products’ instantaneous on/off function leads to reduced downtime

Far-UVC is contactless technology making it a safer disinfection solution to implement.

Far-UVC doesn’t require human intervention to disinfect spaces, resulting in no human error.

Far-UVC is a superb solution to keep any space pathogen-free and needs little maintenance.

HOW 222 nm FAR-UVC WORKS?

The destruction caused by the COVID-19 pandemic in the preceding months has resulted in scientists digging deep into exploring all potential scientific solutions that can help in the successful destruction of harmful microorganisms.
Far-UVC (222 nm) is an outcome of several such experiments.

Scientists observed that Far-UVC at wavelength 222 nm efficiently inactivates drug-resistant bacteria, viruses, molds, and spores without negatively affecting the mammalian skin. The biophysical reason behind this advantageous feature is that Far-UVC light cannot penetrate through the outer dead layer of human skin and eyes due to its strong absorbance into biological materials. However, since viruses and bacteria are smaller in dimensions, far-UVC light can traverse and destroy them.

Observing the potential of Far-UVC in killing germs, intelligent minds decided to make use of this technology to develop disinfection solutions that are much safer to use. So, when looking for a safe, effective, and environment-friendly solution to disinfect occupied & unoccupied spaces, Far-UVC (222 nm) disinfection solutions are exactly what you need.
