What exactly is UV-C disinfection and what does CleanLight do with it?

CleanLight has been building smart disinfection installations for years that kill bacteria and fungi by means of UV-C. Think of our crop reinforcement, air purification and water purification. 15 years ago we started in agriculture, with the disinfection of crops, but nowadays CleanLight is also used for the disinfection of spaces such as in hospitals, theaters, bars, etc. But what exactly is UV-C? And why is this UV-C light suitable for disinfection? We will explain this a little bit in this blog post!

CleanLight has been using this UV technology for years to disinfect agricultural crops.

Different types of light

When you think of light, you may immediately think of a lamp that you can turn on and off. You probably think of light that you can actually see. The light that ensures that we as humans can see different colors and the light that makes the difference between day and night. But did you know that we only see part of all the light? We can distinguish between UV-A, UV-B, UV-C.

UV-A
98.7% of the UV light reaching the Earth’s surface consists of UV-A. UV-A light causes skin aging, but also melanoma. Melanoma is the worst form of skin cancer. That is why it is always said that you should not walk in the sun for too long and apply yourself well with sunscreen.

UV-B
The remaining 1.3% of the UV light reaching the Earth’s surface consists of UV-B. UV-B light causes your skin to brown in the summer, but it also causes burning. UV-B light is also good for the earth itself, because it converts oxygen into ozone and allows the ozone layer to slowly recover.

UV-C
UV-C light does not pass through the ozone layer. That’s a good thing, because this radiation kills everything and everyone. So what we can do is generate UV-C artificially and then use it in lower doses to combat micro-organisms such as fungi and bacteria.

What does CleanLight do with UV-C?

CleanLight is completely based on UV-C technology. More than 100 years ago it has been shown that UV light can kill fungi (SOURCE, just search link on google).

CleanLight has been using this UV technology for years to disinfect agricultural crops. We use low doses of UV-C, because we obviously do not want to affect the crops and people. Nowadays we use CleanLight not only in agriculture, but also in hospitals and other public spaces.

CleanLight UV Surface disinfection

Not only is this CleanLight UV disinfection unit against COVID-19, but also against other bacteria and fungi diseases. By applying CleanLight on the surface you would like to disinfect, such as a doorknob, a mobile phone, a pencil, you name it, you will be able to inactivate the coronavirus making it non-infectious directly after the treatment. CleanLight made this unit very easy to use. They don’t weigh much, and all you do is plug them in, turn them on, and bathe target areas in UV-C light for a few seconds.
