Deep UV LED’s:
Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection is an attractive alternative to traditional chemical processes, which require temperature and pH control and often create substantial amounts of disinfection by-products. Currently, low- and medium-pressure mercury vapor lamps are the only UV light sources used for water disinfection in old-age living facilities, clinics, and orphanages. Deep UV semiconductor light-emitting diodes (LEDs) represent a new class of UV light sources that are environmentally safe, easily reconfigurable, compact, robust, and inexpensive.
Disinfection and cleaning with ultraviolet light is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to conventionally used chemical processes. Especially the deep UV radiation is becoming a more and more important tool in modern industrial applications.
These light sources will clean and disinfect the air within the clinics and old-age facilities, stopping the spread of airborne bacteria and diseases.

Future in Lighting:
- By recognizing the cleansing and purifying effects of the deep UV LED’s potential architectural lighting design can begin to incorporate these lights into programs where public health is particularly critical (i.e. kitchens, restrooms, hospitals, public spaces)
The Hygeaire design has been carefully conceived to provide germicidal ultraviolet rays to purify the upper room air of occupied spaces in order to reduce the risk of cross-infection and exposure of occupants to infectious airborne microbes. The dosage, as it applies to ultraviolet disinfection, is a function of time, and the intensity, of ultraviolet radiation, to which the air is exposed. The exposure time, in seconds, is the total time it takes the air to move through the ultraviolet field, produced by the germicidal lamp(s). Exposure time is related to the air flow rate; the higher the airflow, the lower the exposure time or the lower the airflow, the higher the exposure time.
The operation of the Hygeaire is as follows:
- Ultraviolet rays project across the upper room air.
- Bacteria and viruses are destroyed that are carried into the ultraviolet field by convection currents or air circulation.
- The air in the room is continuously being purified.
