For combating COVID – 19 viruses, beside large scale approaches, small scale and affordable solutions are also equally important in today’s pandemic-prone world. With this backdrop, Ledvance, one of the world’s leading general lighting providers for professional users and end consumers, has rolled out its UVC HEPA Air Purifier.
The UVC HEPA Air Purifier is a mobile, sustainable, space-saving and eco-friendly UV-C air purifier that eliminates up to 99.9% of viruses (incl. SARS-CoV-2 Covid19) and bacteria with UV-C radiation.
In addition, it cleans the air from pollen, microdust and odours as well as cigarette smoke resulting in a healthier living environment. With a height of only 16 cm, the USB-powered purifier is small and light-weight and can be taken anywhere to safely eliminate all harmful substances out of the air, be it in schools, offices and restaurants, at home on the desk or in the kitchen and even in a taxi.
The air purifier uses a three-step disinfection to reduce the risk of contagion: First, the H13 HEPA filter prevents aerosol particles from passing though. The HEPA filter is then disinfected by VIOLED UV-C LEDs. And finally, VIOLED UV-C LEDs also disinfect the remaining air in the Air Purifier.
As the device is free from chemicals and without mercury lamps, it can also be used around new-borns and pregnant women. Also, no UV-C radiation is emitted from the product to keep the use safe.
The device features quiet operation and is powered via USB cable. Users can choose between the three speeds low, medium and high for the air purification functionality.
