Active and Passive
Decontamination and Disinfection
The unique germ-killing properties of UV-C light have been know for over a century. UV-C in sunlight is filtered by the Earth’s atmosphere so microbes have no defense against it. Today this technology is used for hospital disinfection, food safety, and water purification.
Powerful UV-C light kills germs continuously in the air and on surfaces inside the air system. The most popular Germicidal UV Light system in the world because of its reliability, ease of installation, innovative features, and quality components.
Maritime Diesel Electric, Inc has been now partner with a reliable supplier in United States for the marine installation of disinfection system which has been designed based on the AHU CFM in order to complement the ships current filtration system as Microorganisms, particularly viruses, are so small that filters are mostly ineffective.
SARS-COV-2 TEST RESULTS
Our UVC Light Supplier, a world-leader in HVAC ultraviolet disinfection systems, has successfully completed phase-1 third-party testing of their residential, commercial, and healthcare products for effectiveness against SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19 disease).
In the test report titled “SARS-CoV-2 Neutralization by Germicidal UV Light System the systems delivered greater than 4-log inactivation (>99.99%) on the SARS-CoV-2 virus within 0-2 seconds of exposure to UVC 254nm light systems.
The testing was conducted by Innovative Bioanalysis a CAP, CLIA, and AABB certified laboratory (CA, USA). The test was designed to model exposure time comparative to inactivating the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the moving airstream within the HVAC or ventilation system. The units tested were duct-mounted airborne disinfection systems for commercial and healthcare applications, HVAC coil and airborne disinfection systems for commercial and healthcare applications, and the HVAC coil and airborne disinfection with VOC/odor reduction for both residential and commercial applications.
