The UVGI Solutions Protecting Against the Novel Coronavirus 

Let’s see how air sanitization using a commercial UV light sanitizer frees the indoor air from airborne diseases, the novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), and respiratory disease-causing dust particles. 

It is now a proven fact that Coronavirus is airborne, with WHO acknowledging it officially. In a country like India with over a population of 1.3 billion, the rising cases of COVID-19 are an area of significant concern. With limited knowledge of the infection, its spread and the biology of the virus, the use of surface sanitization, washing your hands and covering your face with a mask may not be enough. 

It is becoming more important than ever to sanitize the air we breathe for thorough protection against the novel Coronavirus. The indoor air should be kept free of all kinds of viruses, bacteria, germs and particulate matter in commercial, industrial and residential places. Considerable evidence points out that ineffective air conditioning systems can cause health hazards due to indoor air pollution. 

While the government has reopened economic activities in almost all industries, organizations are struggling to find ways to contain the spread of the virus. Businesses are adopting safety measures to safeguard the health of their employers and customers from the deadly virus. However, these steps may not address or solve the risk of transmission indoors. 

Also, reports suggest that there is a likelihood of virus transmission in enclosed spaces. Research shows that the risk of infection in indoor spaces is 4 times higher indoors as compared to open spaces. 

The reason for the higher chance of transmitting the virus in a closed environment is that the virus travels faster and longer distances through the air droplets in a confined space with air-conditioning. Sanitization of indoor air, using a commercial UV light sanitizer can eliminate microbes such as viruses, bacteria, airborne Coronavirus, PM2.5 particles, pathogens, dust, dander, toxic gases and pollutants that pose health hazards. 

Let’s see how you can sanitize the indoor air using a commercial UV light sanitizer. 

Air sanitization requires a robust technology-based solution such as Magneto Central Air Cleaner (MCAC) that combines the power of magnetic filtration with UV-C light to destroy and kill the harmful microorganisms and pollutants in the air. 

The guidelines released by international bodies such as ASHRAE and EUROVENT recommend using high-efficiency filtration techniques co-powered with a UVC germicidal lamp to protect against the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 family of Coronavirus. The UVGI commercial light sanitizer, Magneto Central Air Cleaner is recommended by international bodies and ISO-16890 to mitigate the risk of transmission of COVID-19. 

While the Magneto Central Air Cleaner is not tested on Coronavirus, it is proven effective in killing other viruses and bacteria and is poised to show similar results against the SARS-CoV-2 family of viruses. 

How does the commercial UVGI light sanitizer Magneto Central Air Cleaner work? 

The Magneto Central Air Cleaner is a UV light sanitizer co-powered with filterless magnetic technology and UVGI (Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiance) that can trap airborne viruses up to 0.1 microns in size (the same size range as SARS-CoV-2) using an electron beam. 

This ruptures the RNA of the virus using the photonic energy of the UVGI system. When the DNA/RNA of the microorganisms is destroyed, they cannot reproduce, rendering them ineffective. 

The trap and kill mechanism sanitizes the air and releases it back. The UVGI technology emits UV-C rays at a wavelength of 253.7 nm to disinfect the air from the air conditioner. 

Applications of the Magneto Central Air Cleaner commercial UV light sanitizer against Coronavirus 

The UVC light sanitizer by Magneto CleanTech is built for smaller indoor spaces and commercial-industrial areas to sanitize the indoor air that the occupants breathe. They can be used as a standalone unit or retrofitted with the existing HVAC or air conditioning systems. The patented commercial UV light sanitizer by Magneto is easy to install, low-cost and environmentally friendly. The 3 applications of the commercial UV light sanitizer are: 

#1. Magneto UVC light sanitizer for residential spaces – The UVC germicidal lamp or the UVC light sanitizer by Magneto CleanTech is installed such that the air closer to the air conditioner gets constantly irradiated. 

The Magneto UVC light sanitizer, Magneto Central Air Cleaner is proven in controlling the airborne infections.

The Magneto Central Air Cleaner was installed in a residential space located close to a sewage treatment plant in Delhi. The ePM1 ready trap and kill technology reduced the PM2.5, CO2 levels, VOCs considerably in the indoor air, which was monitored using an IoT sensor. 

#2. Magneto CleanTech commercial UV light sanitizer for commercial spaces – To make their 50,000 sq. ft. office space Corona ready, the Jindal Centre at the Bhikaji Cama Place decided to install the Magneto Central Air Cleaner AU model as a powerful and efficient air sanitization system

The Magneto Central Air Cleaner was combined with Magneto Fresh Air Energy Recovery Unit for their air conditioning units. The installation was scalable, economic and required no modifications to their existing setup. 

The result was a sharp reduction in the Pm 2.5 levels in their buildings. 

#3. Magneto CleanTech commercial UV light sanitizer for hospitals – The Magneto commercial UV light sanitizer is used as an industrial air sanitizer at PGI, a Chandigarh based hospital and research facility. In the current times, chances of transmission of the Coronavirus to the patients, hospital staff and visitors are at an all-time high.

The commercial UV light sanitizer prevents cross-infection, controls the spread of disease-causing bacteria, fungi, allergens and heavy dust particles that can cause respiratory diseases. 

Air sanitization using UVGI solutions by Magneto Cleantech can be the solution to control the spread of Coronavirus. 

The commercial UV light sanitizer by Magneto CleanTech can trap Coronavirus with 80% efficiency. To tackle the problem of airborne COVID-19 in the indoor spaces, the UVC light sanitizer and the commercial UV light sanitizers are emerging as a viable option.
