Germicidal UV Technology
Ultraviolet light is a very effective way to deal with germs. The spectrum of UV light can be further categorised into 3 different types - UVA, UVB, and UVC – each having different wavelengths and results when it comes to killing germs and safe use.
Let’s break it down more.
UVA, UVB & UVC
What's the difference ?
Penetration of different kinds of UV
UVA & UVB are the common types of UV light in our atmosphere. UVC light has shorter wavelengths and therefore does not pass through the ozone layer as easily.
The ozone layer absorbs all UVC light from the sun, preventing it from reaching the Earth’s surface. With technologies and efforts, UVC can be created artificially. And so we can utilize this incredible disinfecting tool in our daily life.
You may wonder why don't we just use UVA/UVB for germicide?
UVC, which is higher energy, has a far higher germicidal function.
Is it safe?
Common UV lamps and LEDs give off light with wavelengths either 254 nm(Low-pressure mercury lamp) or 266 nm(UV-LED). While these are effective germicidal tools, they pose dangers to human skin and eyes if exposed too directly or for too long.
Far-UVC light, with wavelengths from 207 nm to 222 nm, can still inactivate bacteria and viruses. But does not penetrate human tissues as deeply as other types of UV light, so your eyes and skin will not be damaged.
Effect on the Eyes
Looking at UV light is as dangerous as looking at the sun directly. UVA, UVB, and UVC light can lead to cataracts, macular degeneration, damage of the retina, and other eye conditions.
Far-UVC light does not penetrate the tear layer as other types of UV light, therefore it's safe to even look into it directly.
