222 is the Future of Disinfection at UVC

 

 

For decades, UV-C wavelengths of light have been used to disinfect everything from water to walls. In more recent years 254 nm wavelengths of UV-C light have been the standard in the fight against pathogens. However, there is a new offense available, and that offense is 222 nm wavelengths of UV-C light.

What is 222?

222 nm wavelengths of light work in the same way as 254 nm wavelengths, in that they both inactivate viruses and bacteria with a 99.999% success rate. The biggest difference between the two is that unlike 254 wavelengths, it is safe to have people present during 222 nm wavelength disinfection.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    222 is the Future of Disinfection at UVC - News and Updates | UVC Cleaning Systems | Nationwide - Care222SpectrumDistributionChart_0621
