THE UV SPECTRUM
UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C are all part of the ultraviolet light spectrum.
UV-A results in skin tanning and is used in medicine to treat certain skin disorders.
UV-B has a very high penetrating ability and results in sunburn. Prolonged exposure is responsible for some types of skin disease, skin ageing and cataracts.
UV-C has extremely low penetrating ability and is nearly completely absorbed by the outer, dead layer of skin where it does little harm.
UV Technology Limited makes use of the bactericidal effect of UV-C light in the form of UV-C disinfection.
WHAT IS UV-C
Ultraviolet light in the C spectrum (UV-C) is energy-rich light with a wavelength of 200 – 400 nanometres (nm).
UV-C light is very versatile and can be used for disinfecting water, destroying harmful micro-organisms in other liquids, on surfaces, on food products and in 'air'.
With UV-C technology it is possible to destroy more than 99.99% of all pathogens within seconds, without addition of chemicals, without harmful side effects, inexpensively, highly efficiently and absolutely reliably.
