'Safe once more with UV-C LED sterilization care'

UVC LED rays are harmful to human body. However, it is excellent in inactivating viruses in the air.

UV rays are classified into three types, UV-A, B, and C, depending on the length of the wavelength. The UVC used by us destroys and kills the DNA necessary for proliferation in bacterial cell fluid.

UV-C is a short-wavelength LED developed for the main purpose of sterilization and is the most expensive product, so it has been applied only to some expensive air purifier products, and is the first to be applied to automotive (portable) products. By applying UV-C, bacteria and viruses under 0.3㎛ that can not be filtered by HEPA filter can be sterilized with UV-C.

UVC exerts powerful sterilizing power by destroying thymine (T) base in DNA of various viruses and bacteria in a short time. According to the study, “When UVC LED is installed in a refrigerator, it can prevent odors caused by various bacteria and decay of fresh food, thereby improving the storage period of refrigeration.” Companies are considering applying UVC LED technology.”

UVC LED irradiation effectively inactivates aerosolized viruses.

Ultraviolet Rays is known to be effective in sterilizing, as result many related products have recently been released to disinfect belongings such as toothbrushes, baby bottles, and cell phones. Especially, among the various ultraviolet types, short wavelengths UV-C is involved in sterilization. Studies show that UV-C is effective in removing viruses as well as germs. (Nature, 2018) Therefore, UV-C applied to the HENiR air purifier can be effective in suppressing airborne germs and viruses in the use space by sterilizing the air inhaled by the fan motor.
