Kele launched a new Disinfection Solutions product category earlier this year, featuring ultraviolet (UV) sanitation lighting fixtures from PURO and Fresh-Aire UV. Both offer high-intensity UV fixtures that are highly effective against bacteria and viruses in HVAC applications. The use of UV disinfection products is new to some Kele customers. PURO provided answers to a few frequently asked questions that should help get you up to speed.
How does the PURO OV lighting disinfection system work?
PURO UV disinfecting lighting products, powered by Violet Defense™ technology, use a powerful, broad-spectrum light, including germicidal UV-C, UV-B, and anti-bacterial UV-A to optimize their germ-killing efficiency on both surfaces and airborne particles.
Specifically, UV-C has the ability to kill bacteria, viruses, mold, and fungus. UV-A and UV-B light induce oxidation of proteins and lipids causing cell death.
Broadband UV lamps have also been shown to inhibit photo-reactivation, the process that can result in self-repair of damaging microbes. Utilizing the full spectrum of UV light (UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C) destroys the DNA, RNA, and cell wall of the pathogen, rendering it unable to reproduce.
Which viruses, bacteria, and pathogens do PURO Lighting products kill?
Independent clinical testing confirms PURO Lighting disinfection of viruses, bacteria, and fungal pathogens. PURO’s UV disinfection lights, powered by Violet DefenseTM technology, have been proven to rapidly kill up to 99.9% of Norovirus, C. diff, E. coli, Salmonella, MRSA, and C. auris. Per the EPA emerging pathogen guidelines and based on clinical testing completed, the UV lights have efficacy against Class 2 and 3 viruses, including coronaviruses, SARS, Influenza, and Ebola.
Do PURO products require assembly, or can we start using them right out of the box?
PURO’s Helo fixtures come fully assembled and are easily installable by trained electricians. There are a variety of installation methods including pendant hanging, wall, and in-ceiling mounting. The portable Sentry units come with detailed assembly instructions in the user manual for the base stands that allow Sentry units to be moved to wherever they are needed.
How long does PURO Lighting UV disinfection take?
PURO products are designed to run in 15- or 30-minute increments but can be scheduled to run multiple cycles per day depending on your specific need and disinfection rates. Kele or PURO can help you determine the right cycle for your needs.
How long does PURO Lighting UV disinfection last?
Disinfection of your space is recommended once per day, or more often, depending on the exposure and the kind of facility or area being disinfected. Refer to the user manual for more detailed information.
