UVC’s germicidal or germ-killing effects are well proven. The 253.7 nm electromagnetic waveform is well absorbed by DNA and RNA (the genetic code for all lifeforms), changing its structure.

This damage inhibits the ability of the affected cells to reproduce, meaning that they cannot infect and are no longer dangerous. 

Researchers started focusing on far-UVC in the last decade. Far-UVC uses a lower range of wavelengths (between 207 and 222 nm) for disinfection. Most far-UVC products contain 222 nm light.

 

The safety filter technology in the Artemis FAR UV lamps is a thin filter that only lets through light at around 222 nm and blocks all other unwanted radiation.

Germicidal UVC lamps can be used in wall or ceiling-mounted fixtures suspended above the occupied space in a room. This is called Upper Air Irradiation.

 

The fixtures are designed so that the energy is directed only upwards toward the ceiling and out the sides. These upper-room germicidal fixtures are mounted at least 2.3 metres above the floor so occupants are safe from any UV rays

UVC’s germicidal or germ-killing effects are well proven. The 253.7 nm electromagnetic waveform is well absorbed by DNA and RNA (the genetic code for all lifeforms), changing its structure.

 

This damage inhibits the ability of the affected cells to reproduce, meaning that they cannot infect and are no longer dangerous. Science has yet to find a microorganism that’s totally immune to the destructive effects of UVC.

The exposure of germicidal ultraviolet is the product of time and intensity. High intensities for a short period and low intensities for a long period are fundamentally equal in lethal action on the majority of microorganisms.

 

The inverse square law applies to germicidal ultraviolet energy as it does to visible light: the intensity decreases as the distance from the lamps increases. The average bacteria will be inactivated in seconds or minutes depending on the intensity and proximity of the source.
