Topic: "Best Practices for the Application of UV-C for Surface and Air Treatment"
This presentation briefly describes the history of Germicidal UV-C technology and its ability to inactivate all known
microorganisms including viruses, mold, bacteria—even drug-resistant superbugs, while reducing
HVAC energy use by up to 25%. We will explore the three primary applications of UV-C for air and HVAC surface protection: 1) HVAC
coil/surface irradiation to boost coil-heat-transfer efficiency, 2) HVAC airstream disinfection to kill
airborne pathogens and 3) Upper-Room/Air treatment for infectious diseases. It will also examine the
operating conditions that increase or decrease the required minimum UV-C energy in a specific
application such as UV-C fixture placement, air temperature, air velocity and AHU material reflectivity.
Case studies will be presented along with the simple methods used to validate increased HVAC and
IAQ performance. Additionally, current application standards and guidelines within ASHRAE, IUVA,
IES, UL and ISO will be discussed.
