Sickness caused by viruses | UV-C disinfection reduces health risks (Lancet study)


Health: Sickness caused by viruses

Up to now the transmission of viruses causing sickness by air circulating via air conditioning systems has been an unsolved problem. According to VDI 6022, the level of dust, bacteria, moulds and biological substances in air supplied to rooms may not exceed that of the outside air in any category. Biological substances also include viruses. Because they are so small that they can only be seen under an electronic microscope, viruses are predestined to be transmitted to people, for example as airborne infections spread by air conditioning systems. Even F7 filters are no use here as they are too coarsely meshed and viruses can pass through them. UV-C radiation is the only way to specifically inactivate viruses and prevent their transmission via circulating air in buildings.

Our solution:

Installation of the BARO AirStream UV-C disinfection unit in the ventilation system inactivates any viruses. If there is a rotary spray humidifier for humidifying the air we recommend the integration of a WasherProtec in the water circulation. In unventilated rooms we recommend the use of the disinfection unit AirCom O2 . It goes without saying that all other micro-organisms such as bacteria and moulds that can cause illnesses are also destroyed.
