UV-Technology - active principle

Mirkroorganisms will be inactivated by uv radiation caused in a photochemical reaction in the nucleic acid of the organisms. The uv radiation cause a damage in the DNS and the multiplication of the organism is stopped. The adsorption maximum of the DNS is in the wavelength between 250 nm and 270 nm. The cell inactivation takes place under the influence of radiation at the similar range. To have the best effects you should use lamps which emitted most of there power in a wavelength between 240 nm and 290 nm. The resonance lines of our lamps are at 254 nm. This line is close enough to adsorption maximum to have a high efficiency. The photochemical reaction takes place in parts of seconds. The effect is proportional to the irradiance of the uv lamps.
