UV-C CARE 222
San-I-tize is proud to introduce Care222® far UV-C lamp technology to our service offering.
What is UV-C CARE222®?
UV-C Care222® is a new line of krypton chloride (KrCl) excimer lamps designed for highly effective microbial reduction. The UV-C Care222® line uses ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) to kill bacteria and inactivate a vast range of viruses. UVGI is commonly known as UV disinfection. The 222 nm irradiation kills bacteria and inactivates viruses without damaging human cells/tissues using narrow-band spectrum UV. The system has demonstrated its ability to inactivate all kinds of “superbugs” such as MRSA, influenza, MERS-CoV, as well as viruses like Ebola. In September 2020, the Department of Infectious Diseases at Hiroshima University Hospital confirmed that Care222® lamps are effective against SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic. Care222® far UV-C lamps are now proudly distributed by San-I-tize.
WHAT IS ULTRAVIOLET GERMICIDAL IRRADIATION (UVGI)?
UV radiation between 160 nm and 310 nm has a unique germicidal ability to act as an effective means of disinfection. UVGI achieves this by disrupting the DNA functions of microorganisms and pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, and protozoa. Able to neutralise living cells in a matter of seconds, UVGI is an ideal alternative to chemical disinfection
IDEAL APPLICATIONS FOR THE UV-C CARE222® SERIES
Operating theatres • Conference rooms • Elevators • Educational establishments (schools, universities, etc.) • Food and beverage production • Hospitals • Hotels • Industrial kitchens
Laboratories and clean rooms • Meat production/processing • Public spaces • Public transport • Sanitary facilities (toilets, changing rooms, etc.) • Surgical sites and cleanliness-sensitive areas • Other general surface disinfection applications.
UV-C CARE222® FILTERS OUT DANGEROUS UV-C RAYS C:
Extensive research was conducted with partners from around the world to develop an optical band-pass filter which prevents harmful UV-C rays from leaving the lamp.
