Ultraviolet C (UVC) is an electromagnetic radiation that is present in sunlight, and constitutes about 10% of the total electromagnetic radiation output from the Sun. It is also produced by specialized lights, such as mercury-vapor lamps and the UV light disinfection robots using Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI)
Particularly, the Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (ultraviolet C or UVC) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying their nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions.
UVGI is used in a variety of applications, such as food, air, water purification and most importantly, the fight against the deadly pandemic COVID-19.
UVGI devices can produce strong enough UVC light in circulating air or water systems to make them inhospitable environments to microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, molds and other pathogens.
The UV light disinfection robot SIFROBOT-6.5 by SIFSOF is a great example of these devices that use the UVGI for a totally effective disinfection of any indoor and outdoor areas.
The UV Light disinfection robot SIFROBOT-6.5 provides rapid, effective inactivation of microorganisms through a physical process.
When bacteria, viruses and protozoa are exposed to the germicidal wavelengths of UV light, they are rendered incapable of reproducing and infecting. Ultraviolet will achieve a comprehensive sterilization for surfaces and shadowed areas.
