The mod­ern mar­ket of cli­mate tech­nol­o­gy is flood­ed with var­i­ous prod­ucts, thanks to which you can cre­ate the most favor­able micro­cli­mate in the room. The most pop­u­lar prod­ucts in this cat­e­go­ry are air con­di­tion­ers and split sys­tems, humid­i­fiers and con­vec­tors, com­pact sup­ply and exhaust ven­ti­la­tion units. Our com­pa­tri­ots are in con­stant demand for ultra­vi­o­let air puri­fiers for the home, which will be dis­cussed in this pub­li­ca­tion.

The principle of operation and design features of UV purifiers

The oper­a­tion of such a device is based on the UV radi­a­tion of a quartz lamp, which has a detri­men­tal effect on pathogens.

This air ster­il­iza­tion tech­nol­o­gy has been known for a very long time and has been suc­cess­ful­ly used in hos­pi­tals and food pro­cess­ing enter­pris­es for more than half a cen­tu­ry.

Mod­ern air puri­fiers with a UV lamp can fight not only microor­gan­isms, but also any organ­ic con­t­a­m­i­na­tion of the air mix­ture, decom­pos­ing organ­ic mat­ter into harm­less com­po­nents: car­bon diox­ide and water. Espe­cial­ly effec­tive is the fight against ultra­vi­o­let radi­a­tion with fun­gi and mold colonies, as spores in the air are destroyed.Dometic cleaner

The basic mod­el of the UV puri­fi­er con­sists of a quartz lamp and a fan. With the help of a fan, air is pumped into the body of the device. A UV lamp is installed in the hous­ing, which, by its radi­a­tion, puri­fies the air mix­ture from microor­gan­isms and organ­ic com­pounds. After that, already puri­fied air is removed from the device.

Today, most UV clean­ers are equipped with addi­tion­al devices that, in addi­tion to organ­ics, can decom­pose chem­i­cal com­pounds, puri­fy the air from dust and sat­u­rate it with use­ful neg­a­tive ions. A high-qual­i­ty air puri­fi­er with an ion­iz­er, a UV lamp and a pho­to­cat­alyt­ic fil­ter will reli­ably pro­tect the inhab­i­tants of the house from var­i­ous house­hold con­t­a­m­i­nants that are in the air mix­ture of any room.

Benefits of UV Clarifiers

Mod­ern UV air puri­fiers have a lot of advan­tages:

  • Sim­plic­i­ty in the man­age­ment of tech­nol­o­gy. It is enough to con­nect it to the pow­er sup­ply, set the timer and the process of clean­ing the air mix­ture will begin.
  • Cheap­ness in ser­vice. Such equip­ment, as a rule, does not have replace­able fil­ters, there­fore, it does not need reg­u­lar and expen­sive main­te­nance.
  • Not large size and low weight, due to the absence of com­plex mech­a­nisms.
  • Effi­cient air purifi­ca­tion from organ­ic pol­lu­tion.
  • Small pow­er con­sump­tion.

Many res­i­dents of megac­i­ties are con­cerned about the dete­ri­o­ra­tion of the envi­ron­ment, so they often ask the ques­tion: “How to puri­fy the air in an apart­ment with­out harm­ing the health of the inhab­i­tants, because every­one knows that large dos­es of ozone are released when a quartz lamp is in oper­a­tion”?

Lead­ing experts agree: Mod­ern UV clean­ers are com­plete­ly safe for humans and pets. The thing is that in mod­ern instal­la­tions for clean­ing the air mix­ture, an ultra­vi­o­let lamp with a soft­er radi­a­tion is used. That is why, when using such devices, the ozone con­cen­tra­tion is sev­er­al times low­er than the aver­age dai­ly MPC. On the oth­er hand, ozone also has strong oxi­diz­ing prop­er­ties, which con­tributes to addi­tion­al air purifi­ca­tion from var­i­ous microor­gan­isms.

Safety Precautions When Using UV Clarifiers

Safety Precautions When Using the PurifierThis class of appli­ance is rec­og­nized as safe for res­i­den­tial use, but basic safe­ty pre­cau­tions must be fol­lowed by the own­er to pre­vent elec­tri­cal shock and safe­ly use UV radi­a­tion.

  • Man­u­fac­tur­ers of such devices do not rec­om­mend remov­ing the cas­ing of the device when the UV lamp is oper­at­ing. Radi­a­tion can cause severe burns to the skin and mucous mem­branes of the eyes.
  • The clean­er must not be opened and dis­as­sem­bled when con­nect­ed to the pow­er sup­ply.
  • An air puri­fi­er with an ultra­vi­o­let lamp is rec­om­mend­ed to be cleaned of prod­ucts of var­i­ous con­t­a­m­i­nants at least once a month.
  • The UV lamp pro­duces a suf­fi­cient­ly large amount of heat, so the device should not be installed near flam­ma­ble objects.

Our experts rec­om­mend that you only pur­chase UV puri­fiers with safe­ty doc­u­ments from proven and trust­ed brands.

UV cleaners on the domestic market

On the Russ­ian mar­ket, most often you can pur­chase the fol­low­ing mod­els of mod­ern UV clean­ers:Photo: AIC XJ 2100

UV clean­er with air ion­iza­tion AIC XJ-2100. This device can serve a room up to 25 m2. Thanks to the built-in ion­iz­er, the device charges the air mass­es with neg­a­tive ions and per­fect­ly copes not only with organ­ic pol­lu­tion, but also puri­fies the air of the home from house­hold dust, plant pollen and oth­er inclu­sions that cause aller­gies. The mod­el is an air puri­fi­er with­out replace­able fil­ters and can oper­ate in two modes: con­tin­u­ous and short-term. In short-term mode, the device turns on for 30 sec­onds every three min­utes, which con­tributes to the min­i­mum release of ozone. The cost of the device in Moscow stores varies from 60 to 65 USD.Air Comfort XJ 2200The ultra­vi­o­let air clean­er Air Com­fort XJ-2200 is con­sid­ered one of the most mod­ern and func­tion­al devices on the domes­tic mar­ket of cli­mate tech­nol­o­gy. In addi­tion to the UV lamp, the device is equipped with: a coarse fil­ter, a pho­to­cat­alyt­ic fil­ter. Car­bon fil­ter ele­ment and HEPA fil­ter. Thanks to this fill­ing, the device cleans up to 99% of all con­t­a­m­i­nants from the air and elim­i­nates most unpleas­ant odors. The per­for­mance of the device is suf­fi­cient for high-qual­i­ty air purifi­ca­tion in a room with an area of ​​18 m2. The cost of the device is 62 USD.

Before pur­chas­ing a device for clean­ing the air mix­ture by means of UV radi­a­tion, be sure to con­sult with spe­cial­ists.
