LIGHTS ON, GERMS GONE

A light you can’t see that kills bacteria in air, water and on surfaces.

Breathtaking technology at a time when people need to breathe a little easier. ams OSRAM harnesses the remarkable cleaning properties of UV-C light and delivers it through powerful LEDs. They are small, flexible and work in an instant. Now innovators can make the world cleaner, greener and healthier at the flick of a switch.

The OSLON® UV series is designed to provide efficient UV-C radiation for but not limited to medical, home goods and consumer applications. It allows for flexible designs for various types of UV-C applications in the areas of air, water and surface disinfection and purification, as well as treatment or sensing. Design possibilities are endless and range from point-of-use water treatment, automotive interior disinfection to air purification in portal devices or air conditioning systems. The OSLON® UV family combines both low and mid power with a robust design, reliable and efficient radiation output.

Applications

  • UV-C Surface Disinfection
  • UV-C Water Disinfection
  • Smoke/Dust/Particle Sensing
  • Curing applications
  • Treatment in the chemical industry

What is UV-C?

UV radiation is naturally emitted by our sun each day.

The spectrum can be sub-divided into UV-A (380-315 nm) UV-B (315-280nm) and UV-C (280-200 nm). While UV-A and UV-B can reach the surface of the earth, UV-C is absorbed in the atmosphere. Each kind of UV radiation can also be generated artificially and is well used in our daily lives in several applications. While UV-A is widely used in the printing industry or in sensing applications for detecting counterfeit money. UV-B sources can be deployed in phototherapy or horticulture. UV-C is widely used for disinfection and purification of air, water and surfaces. Typical application areas include water purification for wastewater or in public pools, with disinfection of surfaces in hospitals, or air purification in air conditioning systems. Depending on the application area, different power classes are required to obtain the desired dose on the area or volume of interest.

How does it work?

UV-C radiation is suitable for disinfection of purification since it effectively renders bacteria, viruses and fungi harmless.

UV-C radiation has a highly disinfecting effect since UV-C is absorbed by the DNA of microorganisms, inactivating their reproduction process. The dose necessary to achieve a certain inactivation or reduction depends strongly on the application and pathogens targeted.

Why is it so important?

Clean water. Clean air. Clean surfaces.

A pure environment where the health and safety of everyone is paramount even under the harshest of conditions. In an interconnected world, new challenges arise such as we have recently been witness to. We are confronted with microorganisms every day - at home and at work, from running an errand, to seeing a physician or even while using plain tap water. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a heightened sense of awareness for disinfection and with it a desire for safe UV-C solutions. UV-C radiation is able to reduce harmful micro-organisms effectively without the use of chemicals.
