The AIR160 is based on existing air disinfection methods that are already being used to purify the air in hospital operating theatres. Thanks to the UV-C lamp it’s a strong instrument to kill viruses.
A strong germicidal effect is provided by radiation in the short-wave UV-C band, with 265 nm being the optimum wavelength.
It is known to deactivate (break the DNA of) germs contained in tiny airborne droplets (droplet nuclei) that transmit diseases such as measles, tuberculosis, and influenza from person to person.
Once the DNA of a microbe is broken it loses its ability to reproduce. Bacteria and viruses that cannot reproduce are rendered harmless.
Advantages & Properties
Pure air not only increases the resistance of the body against diseases, but also reduces respiratory problems, or could prevent such problems completely. Anxiety and depression are reduced, or disappear completely. But the major effect is the prevention of diseases.
