UV-light technology – The safest way to improve HVAC air quality
HVAC UV Light Systems helps sterilize the biological contaminants like germs, viruses and mold in the HVAC systems. A lot of the HVAC systems we see in the marine industry today, are energy optimized by recirculating some of the airflow. This air can contain contaminated air, from other passengers. If the airflow is exposed by UV-C light in the right dosage, it will inactivate viruses and improve the overall air quality. It can be a hard task to prevent spreading of diseases like COVID-19 onboard a cruise ship without UV Light. In other words, our turnkey UVGI system is highly recommended and an easy way to keep your HVAC system with recirculation running.
Hvacon Marine Systems will always customize the solution to your requirements and deliver turnkey systems. The systems we provide will remove up to 99,9%(LOG3) of airborne viruses, bacteria and allergens in HVAC systems. Therefore we use the latest UVC technology and are always up to date on the authorities’ requirements and recommendations for UV-C and the cruise ship industry.
Any short wave UV-C lamps, we can provide, use a wavelength of 253.7 nm (254 nm) and will therefore always be referred to as ozone-free.
After the installation, the systems will not require any special maintenance, except bulb replacements. In addition, the rated lifetime of an ultraviolet bulb for HVAC decontamination, has an average of 16.000 hours. Different lifetime ratings can be provided upon request.
Although we can provide solutions that remove 99.9% (LOG3) of airborne viruses, in many cases it will be an option to settle for a LOG2 (99%) or LOG1 (90%) system according to ASHRAE.
