One unit will cover 75 to 100 square feet. For larger spaces, a number of these units can be used. They can also be used to supplement the capacity of other larger models.
The ozone-free lamps are guaranteed for 9,000 hours and it is recommended that they be replaced annually. The louvers slide off with the loosening of one fastener for fast and easy lamp replacement.
Disinfection / Germicidal Fixtures for HVAC Systems
However, these fixtures are also used to improve the efficiency of HVAC systems by eliminating biofilm build-ups on cooling coils and drip pans inside the ductwork. By keeping the cooling coils clean, there is less resistance to the flow of air over the coils and better heat transfer, resulting in significant energy savings.
Many different configurations of UVC germicidal fixtures are available for HVAC applications; from single lamp externally mounted units to large, custom-built, multi-lamp units that span room-size plenums.
Three of the most popular types (ICR, DC & NC) are described below.
All three series are supplied with high quality, high-output American Ultraviolet® lamps.
- Unlike many other germicidal lamps, the output of the American UV lamps are guaranteed to maintain at least 80% of rated UVC power for a full two years (17,000 hours) of constant service.
- High output bulbs produce approximately 2 watts of power per inch of length and 11.7 µW/cm2 per inch at a distance of 1 meter from the bulb.
- They produce no ozone or other contaminants
- Made of high quality "hard glass" for excellent UV transmission
- Improved air quality - less health problems (less colds, flu, asthma, allergies, HAI, etc.)
- Improved HVAC efficiency resulting in energy savings
- Cleaner internal surfaces, especially on cooling coils, reducing maintenance costs
- Eliminate the need for harmful chemicals and disinfecting solutions
- Minimal maintenance: lamps only need to be replaced once every two years

Safety Note:Keep away from children & avoid exposure of skin and eyes to UVC light.
The present demand is caused by the desire of many people to create for themselves and others as much protection as possible from the CoVID-19 virus. They've learned that UVC light helps to prevent the spread of viruses, as well as other germs, spores and bacteria. Customers and patients are more apt to visit places that use the latest technology to protect their health.
Yes, they are becoming more and more popular in homes, from inexpensive handheld units to larger units installed on HVAC systems for disinfecting the air. They have been used for decades to clean the air and surfaces in hospitals, laboratories, clean rooms, doctors' offices and commercial buildings.
This is the acronym for Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning systems usually comprised of cooling coils, heaters, ductwork, air filters and blowers. These systems provide the heating and cooling for many buildings. They can be kept cleaner and more efficient with the use of UVC lamps.
UVC has a similar effect on fabrics and materials to that of sunlight. Long-term exposure to sunlight can bleach the color out of many fabrics and can cause some plastics to fade in color and become rough or brittle over time.
When used properly, they are very effective at killing mold spores, bacteria and viruses.
UVC and UV-C are the same thing and refer to that part of the spectrum of light and electromagnetic energy which is of a frequency just above that of normal ultraviolet light. Ultraviolet (UV) light is invisible to the human eye. UV-A is closest to our visible range and UV-B is a little further away with a higher frequency. These are the frequencies of energy from the sun which cause our skin to become red or tan. UV-C, being even more energetic, is able to kill microorganisms and keep viruses from spreading by damaging their DNA or RNA so they can no longer function.
Although UVC energy has not been shown to cause any permanent damage to human skin, skin can redden (burn) when exposed for any length of time. Just like the sun, it may also cause pain and irritation to the eyes if it is looked at directly without any eye protection. Care should be taken around sources of UVC light. Almost any material, such as clothing, paper, metals, window glass, sunglasses and almost every plastic blocks UVC rays. Two of the only materials that do not block UVC rays are quartz and a special "soft glass" made for UVC lamps.
UVC light (or UVC energy) can be produced in a number of ways; special LEDs, pulsed xenon lamps and mercury vapor lamps. By far, the most widespread and cost effective method is the use of low pressure mercury vapor lamps, which are basically fluorescent bulbs with special UVC transparent glass and without the white coating.
Based on laboratory test data for many different microorganisms, bacteria, viruses, spores, etc., approximate exposure times required for disinfection can be determined. However, many different factors are involved in actual applications, such as: lamp intensity, distance from the lamp to the target, spread of the illumination, type of microorganism, and degree of disinfection. UVClean is able to specify the equipment needed for your desired level of disinfection.
Microorganisms and viruses are deactivated by UVC energy since the frequency or wavelength of the energy involved (200 to 280 nm) is absorbed by DNA and RNA. This energy damages the DNA/RNA which prevents the cells and viruses from replicating and carrying out other cellular functions. The cells, bacteria and viruses are not necessarily destroyed, but they are rendered harmless to people. Of course, it is important that enough energy be delivered to damage the DNA/RNA, which depends on the type of virus or microorganism. For instance, much more energy is required to deactivate black mold spores than bacteria.
The equipment itself is very safe when used properly. Users must direct the UV rays of any device away from people and animals.
As mentioned above, care must be taken to shield UV rays from any person, plant or animal. For this reason, it is important to keep them out of the hands of children.
When using high power mobile units, no one should be in the room with them. The UVC rays will not penetrate normal window glass. To be on the safe side, it is recommended that users of handheld devices wear full UV range sun glasses or other proper eye protection, long pants and long sleeves. Transparent face shields can also be worn, since the plastic will also block the UVC rays. This is mainly to protect the user from reflected energy from glass and polished metal surfaces, besides any occasional direct exposure.
Yes, they come fully assembled. However, depending on the product, some lamps are shipped outside of the fixtures in order to avoid breakage during shipment.
Lamp fixtures for HVAC systems require installation by a skilled professional. Most other UVC fixtures can be easily mounted on a wall (Upper Air units) or simply plugged in and turned on (Mobile and Handheld units). Permanent wiring for wall and ceiling units may require the assistance of an electrician.
Ask UVClean to help you select the best fixtures for your needs. Our staff has more than 100 years of combined engineering experience and has working relationships with the manufacturers.
Each lamp generates a small amount of heat and a very faint bit of visible light. Dosimeters and radiometers can be used to measure the effectiveness of lamps. All products have been thoroughly tested and proven to be effective.
The equipment manufactured by American Ultraviolet® is commercial grade and built to last many years. It is of the highest quality and is all made here in America. Products are made of metal, rather than plastic. The lamps (or bulbs) should be replaced every year or two, depending on the type used.
Depending on the model selected, lamps are warranted for either 1 or 2 years of service. Most ballasts (the electronics used for powering the lamps) are warranted for 5 years.
All products are guaranteed 100%. If you have any problems, contact us. If we can't resolve the issue, you may exchange your product or be refunded the purchase price.
Typical lead times are 2 to 4 weeks for standard items. Check with UVClean before placing your order. Some items will take longer to ship due to high demand at this time.
Standard products are typically shipped directly to customers from the manufacturer by way of FedEx® or UPS™. They may also be delivered by UVClean if UVClean will be assisting with installation or training.
They should be disposed of in the same way your fluorescent bulbs are. Check with your local authorities on the official procedure in your area. They should not be thrown directly into the trash, since they contain small amounts of mercury.
