USHIO Care 222® technology successfully blocks harmful band
The module kills bacteria and inactivates viruses without damaging human cells/tissues using narrow -band spectrum UV (world-wide exclusive licence from Columbia University). No skill damage, no eye damage, moreover, computer modelling indicates dramatically less DNA damage from UV-C Krypton-chloride lamps (222 nm) from sun light exposure.
Many questions were received during the presentation, thanks to the presence of companies already active in the sector.
“Would you recommend a continued use of the lamp or, according to distances and the proper positioning of the module, would it be better to introduce some usage discontinuity? (Guido Catani, C LED)
“The best way is to do cycles: typically, 10 seconds ON and 15 seconds OFF. This is also to preserve the use of each module”.
“How long does it take for the lamp to completely wipe out all the bacteria or viruses? (Sergio Macchioni, HIKARI)”
“It takes time, of course, and it has been calculated thanks to some simulation programs for the set-up of the lamps and the intensities on the surfaces: it is possible to calculate how quickly or how or how long it takes to eliminate the bacterial or virological load. It all depends on whether the goal is 99.9% or 99.99%. Depending on the objective, the algorithm allows the calculation of time. Nothing for granted, but we have the numbers to prove the validity of the product”.
