Ultraviolet (UV) Germicidal Lamps

    Light in the UV-C wavelength eliminates and/or prevents the buildup of organic material on the surfaces of cooling coils, drain pans, and interior duct surfaces. This improves airflow, returns, and maintains the heat-transfer levels of cooling coils to “as-built” conditions and reduces maintenance. The benefits of UV-C’s efficacy in inactivating pathogens are explored in two ASHRAE Position Documents. The documents find that the UV-C wavelength kills 90 percent of all microorganisms living on HVAC air ducts and evaporator coils, depending on the light intensity, length of exposure, UV lamp placement, and lamp life cycle. Moreover, UV-C continues to destroy pathogens 24/7/365 as air cycles through an air handling unit (AHU).

    Honeywell’s UV Air Purifier with AirBRIGHT Odor Absorption is installed in the ductwork of your central air system and is designed to help reduce airborne odors, toxic chemical vapors, germs, and mold in your home. Through the use of Advanced Photocatalytic Oxidation (PCO) technology, Honeywell’s UV Air Purifier combines germicidal UV light and activated carbon cells to reduce volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the air.

    Benefits Of UV With Airbright:

    • Neutralizes household odors. AirBRIGHT Odor Absorber never needs to be replaced
    • A lamp that is always on, continuously reducing airborne particles
    • Deactivates airborne and surface contaminants like mold bacteria and viruses
    • For both coil and air treatment
    • The lamp only needs to be replaced once a year
    • 5-Year warranty

    This air treatment system is mounted downstream from the cooling coils of your HVAC system. The device is designed to prevent microorganisms such as mold and certain bacteria from growing on the duct surfaces, coils, and drip pans for better indoor air quality in your home.

    The Benefits of Using UV Germicidal Lamps for Disinfection

    UV germicidal lamps offer a chemical-free method to kill up to 99.9% of pathogens, including viruses, bacteria, and fungi. Midwest Mechanical integrates these systems, which disrupt DNA and prevent microbial reproduction. This technology is eco-friendly, leaving no residue or by-products, and is also cost-effective with minimal maintenance needs.

    Applications of UV Germicidal Lamps in Various Industries

    UV germicidal technology finds diverse applications across industries due to its efficiency and safety:

    • Healthcare: Sterilizes surgical equipment and surfaces in hospitals to prevent infection spread.
    • Food and Beverage: Ensures product safety and extends shelf life without altering taste or appearance.
    • Water Treatment: Purifies drinking water and treats wastewater, protecting against environmental contamination.
    • HVAC Systems: Maintains air quality by eliminating mold and pathogens from ventilation systems.

    Safety Guidelines for Using UV Germicidal Lamps

    Safety is paramount when using UV germicidal lamps due to the potential for skin burns and eye injuries from UV-C exposure:

    • Limit Exposure: Use lamps in controlled environments where human presence is restricted during operation.
    • Proper Installation: Ensure lamps are correctly installed with adequate shielding to prevent accidental UV exposure.
    • Personal Protective Equipment: Use UV-blocking goggles and protective clothing during maintenance.
    • Training and Signage: Provide thorough training for users and display clear warning signs near UV lamp installations.
