At a wavelength of 254 nanometres, UV-C inactivates micro-organisms
(viruses, bacteria, algae, yeasts, moulds, etc.) by penetrating their DNA, thereby disrupting their metabolism until they are completely destroyed.
The sun emits an invisible light known as ultraviolet rays. This natural phenomenon is reproduced within BIO-UV Group’s light chambers, using powerful lights incorporating the latest technology that emit UV-C rays. 254 nanometers is the optimum wavelength for inactivating micro-organisms (viruses, bacteria, algae, yeasts, mold); UV-C light penetrates to the heart of the micro-organisms’ DNA and disturbs the metabolism of the cells.
All the germs are thus inactivated (including legionella and cryptosporidium) and can no longer reproduce.
Concerning the removal of chloramines special UV-C lamps are designed to produce a larger variety of lightwaves that are more effective at irradicating tri-chloramines which are known to cause respiratory ailments.
