MUV-X Steriliser and food production 

The MUV-X features 4 High Output UV-C, also called Germicidal UV (GUV) lamps for total room irradiation. The MUV-X units are designed for virtually any room that needs air and surface disinfection, including sterile areas, laboratories, unoccupied patient rooms etc. Each unit is equipped with casters for maximum portability, a 750cm power cord, on/off switch with 2min delay, timer and carry handle. The unit physical size is 500mm x 500mm x 540mm and the units weight is 12kgs. The MUV-X is also constructed to allow units to be stacked on top of one another to increase efficiency and speed of disinfecting a room

What is germicidal UV, and what is UVGI?

Germicidal UV (GUV) refers to using ultraviolet radiant energy to inactivate bacteria, mold spores, fungi or viruses. When the process is applied in a given location, it has generally been referred to as ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI).

Is all ultraviolet considered germicidal ultraviolet (GUV)?

No. Germicidal ultraviolet (GUV) – refers to short-wavelength ultraviolet “light” (radiant energy) that has been shown to kill bacteria and spores and to inactivate viruses. Wavelengths in the photo-biological ultraviolet spectral band known as the “UV-C,” from 200 to 280 nanometers (nm), have been shown to be the most effective for disinfection. UV-C wavelengths comprise photons (particles of light) that are the most energetic in the optical spectrum (comprising UV, visible, and infrared) and therefore are the most photo-chemically active.

Can UV-C kill viruses as well as bacteria?

Yes, UV-C kills living bacteria, but viruses are technically not living organisms; thus, we should correctly say “inactivate viruses.” Individual, energetic UV-C photons photo-chemically interact with the RNA and DNA molecules in a virus or bacterium to render these microbes non-infectious. This all happens on the microscopic level. Viruses are less than one micrometer (µm, one-millionth of a meter) in size, and bacteria are typically 0.5 to 5 µm.

Can UV-C effectively inactivate the SARS-CoV-2 virus, responsible for COVID-19?

Yes, if the virus is directly illuminated by UV-C at the effective dose level. UV-C can play an effective role with other methods of disinfection, but it is essential that individuals be protected to prevent UV hazards to the eyes and skin as elaborated in Section 4. UV-C should not be used to disinfect the hands!

Can near-ultraviolet (UV-A) lamps, such as UV insect traps, be used for GUV?

No. UV-A and longer (visible) wavelengths do not have germicidally effective emission wavelengths to inactivate viruses. Their relative disinfection capability is very minimal on the order of 1,000 times less effective in terms of fluence rate than the low-pressure mercury germicidal lamp. There have been only very special applications of wavelengths in the UV-A and violet (e.g., 405 nm), which require very high doses not practical in an occupied environment and were not recommended for viral sterilization. The trace amount of UV-B that is emitted from some white-light fluorescent lamps probably has similar efficacy.

Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have been available for some time in the UV-A region. The advantage of UV-A or visible-light LEDs would be that they can easily be incorporated into LED-based luminaires, and there might be no need for protective gear. However, the efficacy of violet or UV-A energy that is not harmful to the skin or eyes is minimal.

Does the ultraviolet in sunlight have a GUV effect?

Yes, particularly in the late spring and early summer when the sun is high in the sky and the UV index is high. At a UV Index of 10, the duration to achieve at least a three-log kill of bacteria (99.9% killed) is estimated as less than one hour.

UV Sterilizer

The Muv-X delivers on two key, critical needs
  1. Inactivates virus' and kills bacteria both in the air and left behind on surfaces after a clean and
  2. Provides reassurance to both employees and clients that a business (be that a Hairdressers, a Physio, a General Practitioner, a Dentist, a Solicitor, a GYM operator, Changing Rooms etc etc) is taking every step to protect their health while on the premises.

“I am now using this easy to store, cost-efficient UV-C room steriliser. It takes just under 10 minutes to complement a deep clean supporting our commitment to deliver a safe clinical practice for employees and patients following the COVID19 pandemic. This equipment can support a range of services where cleaning of surfaces is a requirement to maintain health and safety standards, such as GP surgeries, dentist practices, waiting rooms, office spaces, hotel rooms, restaurants etc.”
