In this section, we have collected answers to the most frequently asked questions about the use of germicidal UV-lamps.
How long can irradiators - recirculators work?
In the presence of people recirculator can operate continuously for the entire time needed to disinfect indoor air.
Is ozone released when using ultraviolet lamps?
Previously, all the ultraviolet lamps that were used to disinfect the premises, led to the formation of ozone in the air. In this case, the treatment was carried out strictly in the absence of people and after it was required to ventilate the room for 45 minutes. In modern ultraviolet lamps, this effect is absent. To produce them, special glass is used, which has a high transmittance of bactericidal ultraviolet rays, and simultaneously absorbs radiation below 200 nm, which forms ozone from the air. Only in the first 100 hours of lamp operation, is recorded extremely small, in the MPC (maximum allowable concentration) norms, the formation of ozone, which subsequently disappears altogether.
Where should recirculator be located in the room?
Recirculators are placed indoors in such a way that the intake and ejection of air are unimpeded and coincide with the directions of the main convection currents.Avoid installing recirculators in the corners of the room, where stagnant zones can form.
The service life of ultraviolet lamps used in irradiators
The service life of ultraviolet lamps used in irradiators is 8000 hours, some longer (18000 hours).
What means can I sanitize the body of recirculators?
The exterior surfaces of the recirculator are resistant to treatment by means of wiping with all disinfectants for surface treatment, with the exception of abrasive particles.
