Title
(EN) IMPROVED METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR PRODUCING A HIGH LEVEL OF DISINFECTION IN AIR AND SURFACES
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL AMÉLIORÉS POUR PRODUIRE UN NIVEAU ÉLEVÉ DE DÉSINFECTION DANS L'AIR ET SUR DES SURFACES
Abstract
(EN)
This specification relates to an improved method, process and apparatus for disinfecting and sterilizing all types of surfaces and indoor air and room air contaminated with microorganisms. The improved apparatus consists of a multi-wavelength narrow spectral width UV source that is more effective than mercury based 254 nm germicidal lamps for destroying the DNA and outer shell or membrane of virus, bacteria, spores and cists.
(FR)
Cette invention porte sur un procédé, un processus et un appareil améliorés de désinfection et de stérilisation de tous les types de surfaces et de l'air intérieur et de l'air ambiant contaminé par des microorganismes. L'appareil amélioré consiste en une source d'UV à spectre étroit et longueurs d'ondes multiples, plus efficace que des lampes germicides à 254 nm à base de mercure pour détruire l'ADN et la coque extérieure de la membrane des virus, bactéries, spores et cistes.
