SARS-CoV-2 viruses are primarily transmitted via aerosols emitted into the surrounding air when we breathe. UVC ambient air disinfection systems are an effective method of reducing the germ load in the environment – and not only during the Corona pandemic!
When aerosols are exposed to UVC radiation with a wavelength of 254 nm, the viruses they contain (coronaviruses and influenza viruses, to name but a few), bacteria and mould spores are inactivated and rendered harmless.
The disinfection of the air and surfaces with UVC radiation safely and efficiently minimises the risk of infection with SARS-CoV-2 and other pathogens
The high disinfection power of UV radiation has been scientifically proven for decades, and its effect on coronaviruses has also been amply confirmed.
Chemical-free UVC disinfection has been used successfully for many years in food production, water treatment and health care (e.g. in hospitals and laboratories).
SteriWhite Air Q is a highly efficient UVC system for air disinfection. Extremely low-noise fans actively
route the germ-laden air into the interior of the unit, where it flows past UV lamps. Air volume, flow
speed and UVC dosage are coordinated perfectly to achieve excellent inactivation rates.
SteriWhite Air Q was developed specifically for use in occupied rooms.
According to the values measured by an external lighting laboratory, the units fall within the category
free of risk as defined by DIN EN 62471 and thus pose no photobiological hazard.
• Produces neither ozone nor other harmful substances
• Safe housing
• Free of chemicals
Due to their easy handling and high safety standard, the units can be used anywhere, in particular in
places where increased safety and low noise emissions are important, such as:
• Doctor’s surgeries, hospitals
• Offices, meeting rooms and welfare areas
• Health care facilities such as retirement and nursing homes
• Day nurseries, schools and educational institutions
• Reception and waiting areas
• The catering and hotel industry
• Stores and the retail trade
We also offer other units, which are used, for example, in production halls.
