UV sources amplify the natural phenomenon
The Sun has a cleaning effect due to the emission of invisible light: ultraviolet (UV).
This natural phenomenon is reproduced and amplified by our powerful ultraviolet emission sources.
The DNA and some elements of micro-organisms (viruses, bacteria, yeasts, moulds, etc.) are damaged by UV wavelengths (200 to 315 nanometres). This blocks replication of the genetic material and prevents a micro-organism surviving and multiplying.
All the germs may be disabled, even though they do not all have the same UV sensitivity.
In addition to disinfection, UV treatment has other applications:
destruction of chloramines
photo-oxidation of Total Organic Carbon (TOC)
