DOES ULTRA VOILET WORK?
Strong sunlight purifies by permanently inactivating bacteria,
viruses, moulds and spores. Almost a century ago, scientists
identified the part of the spectrum which is responsible for
this well-known effect: wavelengths of 240 – 280 nm, primarily
in the UV-C spectrum.
Such energy can now be produced commercially by electrical discharge
devices and UV technology has been harnessed for a range of
applications from disinfection to oxidizing organics.
Hanovia UV-systems generate the same ultra violet germicidal
rays as sunshine, but hundreds of times stronger. No bacteria,
viruses, moulds or their spores can withstand this treatment.
