  • Spectral distribution of uv light during aging of medium pressure UV lamps

    As part of a project to validate a UV reactor for disinfection of drinking water, the germicidal output of four medium pressure lamps housed in a continuously operating reactor was followed as a function of time. Spectra were measured monthly and were used in conjunction with radiometer readings to calculate germicidal fluence rates (using DNA absorbance weighting) at the radiometer sensor ...

  • Use of CFD Modelling to Optimise the Design of Upper-room UVGI Disinfection Systems for Ventilated Rooms

    AbstractThe installation of upper-room ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) devices in ventilated rooms has the potential to reduce transmission of infections by an airborne route. However, the performance of such devices is dependant on several factors including the location of the lamp and the ventilation airflow in the room. This study uses a CFD model to evaluate the performance of UVGI ...

  • Types of UV Light for Different Applications

    Types of UV Light for Different Applications Ultraviolet (UV) radiation was discovered in 1801 when the German physicist Johann Wilhelm Ritter observed that invisible rays just beyond the violet end of the visible spectrum darkened silver chloride-soaked paper more quickly than violet light itself. He called them "oxidizing rays" to emphasize chemical reactivity and to ...
