The use of UV light for disinfection is gaining popularity over chemical disinfection in a variety of industries including healthcare, consumer appliances, food & beverage, and lab water. The increased popularity is driven in part by the availability of high performance UVC LEDs which show progress in power output and device lifetime.

UVC LEDs provide designers with a more effective germicidal light source; more design flexibility (which leads to better systems); and reduced cost of ownership for the end user.

In this webinar, you'll learn:

  • The basics of UVC LEDs and their benefits over other methods of disinfection
  • The basics of UV disinfection (including log reduction and dosage requirements)
  • Common target microbes for these applications

Examples will be provided for both low flow water disinfection and surface disinfection applications.
