No air purification system by ventilation + UVC, even with a high flow rate, can have a very fast decontamination effect: indeed, the air treated by the device is remixed with the polluted air (mixing), and the whole air must thus pass several times in the system to be purified. The minimum action time is estimated at 30 minutes if the flow rate is equivalent to 40 times the volume (m3) of your practice. In addition, untreated air pockets may persist in some areas.
In addition, these systems do not treat surfaces or the floor. Therefore, only the UVmastercare system is sufficient since the UV-C lamps allow both a direct and efficient purification of the ambient air and a total disinfection of the floors and surfaces in a much shorter time (3 minutes for 16m2).
UV is very dangerous, especially for the eyes. It is therefore totally inadvisable to be present in the room during the few minutes of operation of the device. Our engineers have put in place several measures to avoid accidental exposure:
Some plastics and polymers can indeed be discolored or become fragile after long use, such
as after exposure to the sun. We have studied the impact of our UVC on materials found in a
dental office in the laboratory, and the results are encouraging and do not appear to damage
most materials. Read our Documentation about UVC damage on Lab equipment.
