What is UV-c?

UV-C is part of the light spectrum that can be used for water purification,

air and surface disinfection.

Ranging from 100 nanometers (nm) to 280 nm it’s exposure deactivates the DNA of bacteria, virus, and other pathogens by destroying their ability to reproduce and cause disease.

When biological organisms are exposed to UV-c light it is absorbed by DNA, RNA, and proteins. Absorption of UV-c by proteins leads to a rupture of the cell wall and inactivation of the organism. With sufficient exposure, the DNA replication process is disrupted, and the cell cannot replicate, in fact, when the organism tries to replicate, it dies.

How does BlueScience use UV-c?

Blue Science utilises the disinfectant properties of UV-c light to convert an air-conditioning unit into a powerful air purifier. Warm and contaminated air is pulled in through the top of the unit, where it is then cooled via the unit’s cooling coil. BlueScience immerses the air around the cooling coil in UV-c light, sanitising it during the process. The cool air is then dispensed by the air-conditioning unit free of virus, bacteria, moulds and odours.

Why use BlueScience?

A major health concern of modern-day life is the presence of viruses and bacteria in confined public areas. Indoor hotspots such as offices, meeting rooms, restaurants, cafes and waiting rooms, see compact congregations of people, with little way to nullify the risks of airborne infection. BlueScience makes use of the nature of these indoor hotspots to contain wall mounted air-conditioning units, providing a retrofit air-sterilization system, that massively decreases the chance of airborne infection/contamination.

Not only does BlueScience inactivate Viruses and bacteria, but it also acts as a neutraliser to unpleasant or overpowering odours that are often found in germ-volatile environments such as restaurants, bars and gyms.

What are the Beneficial Uses of UV-c?

UV-c technology is a proven non-chemical approach to disinfection of water, air and surfaces. In this method of disinfection no substance is applied to the unit – making it a simple, inexpensive, and a very low maintenance method.
