IT’S TIME TO KNOW THE FACTS

We get it. It’s a lot to come to terms with, so let’s just take it slow. 

As we all have experienced first hand due to the COVID-19 pandemic, airborne pathogens and viruses are a serious concern and health issue. In addition, aerial contaminants such as pollution, bacteria, mold, spores, and dust can have long term negative effects on your lungs.

Many medical professionals, including the CDC, have backed the highly effective use of UVC lights to destroy pathogens and the spread of diseases. Over the years, there have been many studies also conducted that prove the 99.9% effectiveness that this light has on instantly destroying these microorganisms.

Companies with strict health protocols have actually been using and experimenting with this technology for almost 100 years. Now you might be thinking, “This seems a little dangerous” or “I don’t even really understand how this can work for my needs”. We can help answer all of these questions for you, and then some!

If you don’t see an answer to one of your questions, we are always here to help.

WHAT IS UVC?

It comes down to the frequency on the UltraViolet (UV) spectrum

UVC technology has been used for many years, and yet most people have not heard of it. Hospitals, water treatment plants, and even peanut butter factories use this technology regularly.

Light is measured on a spectrum, we use a light called UVC which is anywhere between 240-280 nanometers. Our bulbs specifically are at 254 nanometers.

HOW IT WORKS

When exposing microorganisms to UVC light at around 254nm, the light penetrates through their cell wall and disrupts the structure of their DNA molecules, prohibiting reproduction.

The light at this wavelength is just between X-Rays and Visible light. You have heard of UVA and UVB, probably when looking at sunscreen. UVC is not mentioned often because our atmosphere does not allow much through. This is a good thing because it is extremely damaging to our skin. 

UVC light is able to kill cells because it penetrates the nucleus (information center) of the cell and destroys the RNA/DNA contained within it.

WE’RE NOT THE ONLY ONES TALKING ABOUT IT

Founder and Purification LLC engineer, Nicholas Knudson, prides himself by staying active in the academia community around UVC technology. He has even developed meaningful connections with these scholars to ensure that Purification LLC is applying the exact scientific methodology in our devices so that we are providing safe and precise results.

HAVE QUESTIONS?

Are UVC lights really effective against COVID-19?

Yes! The FDA backs this up on their website sharing that this technology has been used for decades as a "germicidal" solution. UVC destroys or deactivates bacteria and virus's DNA or RNA chain; eliminating their reproduction abilities to spread. The lights destroy 99.9% of the world's most harmful bacteria and viruses, including COVID-19, SARS, flu and spores with unmatched speed and effectiveness.

Are UVC lights safe?

Safety is our #1 priority at Purification LLC. As direct exposure to UVC light is known to be harmful, we have various ways to use and install our technology within businesses and home so that those risks are eliminated. Our special technicians install the lights out of sight, providing everyone with a safe and sanitary environment. We operate with the highest level of excellence in safety standards and protocols when using our lights.

What UVC solution do I need?

In working with one of our team's experts, we will be able to advise you on what is the best solution or product for your facility or sterilization goals. Purification LLC has a variety of services for our devices including HVAC installations by a certified HVAC technician or exposed light beams that controlled by a flip of a switch for better surface area sterilization.
