UV-DUCT Germicidal

UV-DUCT-FL-NX is an Indoor Air Quality disinfection system for Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning installations and plant, that adapts to small duct spaces. Suitable for retrofit applications the UV DUCT can be installed into just about any ventilation duct for both residential and/or commercial grade applications.

Duct mounted for air pass by Disinfection the device creates a UV-C barrier that inhibits the proliferation of viruses, bacteria, moulds and spores, which commonly nest and circulate within Air Conditioning systems and are very harmful to our health. UVC Sanitised air quality provides a general, direct level of improvement to facility occupational health, safety and comfort requirements.

UV-DUCT treats air that passes through its powerful germicidal lamps, potentially eliminating the bacterial load and the dispersion and distribution of dangerous airborne infectious pathogens introduced and recirculated within buildings.

In addition to the numerous health benefits, the use of the UV-DUCT-FL allows important benefits in terms of Heating and Ventilation operating costs. In HVAC systems the growth of an unpleasant biofilm usually covers inner surfaces of ducting. This is a result of favourable conditions for their proliferation, such as temperature changes, high humidity, moisture, and deep darkness. The UV-DUCT-FL-NX inhibits the creation of this biofilm increasing overall efficiency, Indoor Air Quality and comfort.

The UV-DUCT-FL series includes a series of flange modules from which two “U” lamps of different lengths (from 20 to 50 cm) and power emittance from (70W to a class leading 190W) emerge, protected by a stainless-steel grid. UV-DUCT-FL are compact in size and include onboard controls, which allow for simple and effective installation, even in existing air conditioning systems (retrofit). It is simple to install using the practical template and instructions provided. Specific ballasts are inserted directly inside the case to power the UV-C Light Progress lamps, optimizing their performance and durability.

UV-DUCT series air sterilizers exploit the properties of germicidal ultraviolet lamps UV-C with peak emission at 254 nanometres. Germicidal Ultra Violet irradiation has a proven, strong germicidal effect against micro-organisms (moulds, bacteria and viruses).

The possibility to continuously operate the UV FAN 24/7 allows for “air washing” – the ability to continuously clean the volume of airflow into a room site location.

From the start of the operation, a significant reduction in contaminants is achieved right down to continued, further negligible reductions of microbial residue present in the target room zone the longer the unit is in operation.

UV DUCT is a versatile air purifier that can be used in many of the following environments:

  • Private Residences
  • Aged Care Facilities,
  • Hospitals, ICUs, Maternity wards, Surgical units
  • Medical and Dental clinics
  • Pharmacies
  • Office buildings
  • Restaurants and Hospitality venues,
  • Schools
  • Laboratories
  • UV-DUCT can also be used in the food production, catering and packaging sectors, where mould and bacteria are best removed from the air, allowing for longer and healthier preservation of products.

PHYSICAL ACTION AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION. Treatment by UV-C rays is purely physical, and achieves the same effect every time; with no continuous after effects. Unlike, many methods of chemical treatment which involve the use of dangerous products for the environment and are difficult to biodegrade, as well as carrying the risk of contamination of foodstuffs. Also, by the use of chemicals alone it is possible to develop resistant microbial forms with consequent danger to human health.

TOTAL SAFETY Ultraviolet rays are confined to HVAC ducting and plant when installed in the correct manner. Therefore, facility HVAC air volumes can be treated when operators are present. Operators and human traffic represent a high level of cross contamination by introducing the majority of the germs through respiration, transpiration, clothing, etc.

BEST QUALITY AIR This system can remain actively switched ON with the active facility HVAC at all times without any contraindications for people. The level of environmental microbial load is thus maintained constantly low and the “indoor air” quality (IAQ) is improved, as prescribed and recommended by W.H.O. (World Health Organization)

PRACTICABILITY AND SAVINGS. The treatment is immediate and ready for use. The maintenance is minimal with low costs of both energy consumption and maintenance

STOP CROSS CONTAMINATION The contamination of one area may spread to another through air conditioning systems. UV-C devices can assist to prevent the spread of Airborne infection throughout facilities
