The GreensGroomer WorldWide, Inc.'s UVC Product Line-up is designed to be a cost-effective maintenance solution for facilities and industries that require a higher awareness of disease mitigation.
For some, understanding the effectiveness of UVC technology is a little complicated. In the simplest terms, UVC energy destroys the DNA bonds of the organism which results in the inactivation of the virus or bacteria.
The main considerations for the effectiveness of UVC inactivation are lamp intensity and exposure time. Lamp intensity is a function of the bulbs radiant energy and the distance from the surface. Once an intensity factor is established it is simple to determine how long the surface needs to be exposed.
In order to have a significant reduction in the micro-organisms present, one must target an energy dosage of over 6,000 to 8,000 or greater (mJ/cm2). What we've established is that a slow, steady effort when moving equipment over a surface will produce kill factors in the 99% range.
Our UVC Products are designed for the maintenance professional and shouldn't be confused with the inexpensive UVC gadgets advertised on television or seen on-line for $29.00. Our equipment is built around high-intensity, specially designed bulbs that output high levels of UVC energy.
