Perfect germicidal spectrum

PureFize creates a unique UV light spectrum that peaks at 267 nm, which is when germs best absorb UV light. The spectrum is also broad enough to ensure that all bacteria, viruses and germs are destroyed beyond repair and eliminate any regrowth, or so-called tailing.

Applications

Home

PureFize UV light sources can be easily integrated into more or less any kind of product such as disinfection boxes for smaller electronics such as cell phones and remote controls or hygiene items such as combs and toothbrushes. Larger boxes can accommodate items such as laptops, keyboards and tablets. Our light sources can also be built into refrigerators, dishwashers or kitchen drawers.

Offices

PureFize is perfect for integration in disinfection boxes of different sizes for smaller and larger items. It can be used to disinfect laptops, keyboards, computer mouses, whiteboard pens and other office items that are used daily.

Restaurants

In restaurants, there are lots of items that get touched by many hands several times every day. PureFize can conveniently be used for disinfection of menus, coasters, cutlery, salt and pepper shakers, card readers, trays, etc. Our UV light sources can also be integrated into kitchen drawers, cupboards and white goods.

Retail and logistics

PureFize UV light sources can be used to disinfect frequently touched items such as barcode scanners in shops and warehouses or card readers and common shared equipment such as scoops and deli slicers. They can also be integrated into coolers, salad bars, food displays, etc.

Food production

Our UVC light sources can be used as a highly effective, non-toxic and totally residue-free disinfecting method for fresh produce before packaging to ensure freshness, reduce food contamination and increase shelf life and storage time.

Other applications

The PureFize technology can also be used to disinfect air and liquids, for example in HVAC filters or for water purification. PureFize also eliminates any regrowth of microorganisms in HVAC units when idle.

Clean and safe with PureFize®

PureFize® UV disinfection technology is a simple, fast and very efficient way to eradicate bacteria and viruses using UVC light. It can be used to disinfect surfaces, foods, air and liquid. PureFize is completely mercury-free and developed with sustainability in mind to minimize the impact on people and planet.

How it works

How you benefit

Zero mercury

Disinfection using UV light is not new. In fact, it has been used for more than 30 years, contributing to clean water and clean air. However, conventional UV disinfection systems usually contain mercury lamps. Since mercury is a hazardous material, there is a tendency to phase it out in favor of other lighting technologies that provide a sustainable alternative.

PureFize® UV disinfection technology is 100% mercury-free and does not present any threat to our natural environment. The entire lamp system can be disposed in the same way as other small electronics.

Fast and efficient

Disinfection with PureFize is fast, safe and efficient. It only takes a few minutes, or even seconds, for the light to destroy all bacteria, viruses and other harmful microorganisms.

Where you find PureFize

At home

PureFize UV light sources can be easily integrated into boxes for disinfecting smaller electronics such as cell phones and remote controls or hygiene items such as combs and toothbrushes. Larger boxes can accommodate items such as laptops, keyboards and tablets. Our light sources can also be built into refrigerators, dishwashers or kitchen drawers.

At the office

PureFize is perfect for integration in disinfection boxes of different sizes for smaller and larger electronics. It can be used to disinfect laptops, keyboards, computer mouses and other office items that are touched daily.

In restaurants

In restaurants, there are lots of items that are touched by many hands every day. PureFize can be used for disinfection of menus, coasters, cutlery, salt and pepper shakers, card readers, trays, etc. Our UV light sources can also be integrated into kitchen drawers, cupboards and white goods.

In shops

PureFize UV light sources can be used to disinfect frequently touched items such as barcode scanners or card readers and common shared equipment such as scoops and deli slicers. They can also be integrated into coolers, salad bars, food displays, etc.

In daycare centers

Many small hands that play with many toys pose a risk for spread of viruses and bacteria. PureFize light sources can be used for disinfection of all kinds of hard and soft toys and the absence of any chemicals during the process guarantees safety.

To minimize food waste

PureFize light sources prevent bacteria growth on food and can thus be used for keeping your refrigerator clean and your foodstuff fresh. Thanks to PureFize, food items can be stored up to a week longer, which helps you minimize food waste and contribute to a more sustainable planet.

Frequently asked questions

What is UV light?

Ultraviolet (UV) light is a form of light, invisible to the human eye, that exists on the electromagnetic spectrum between X-rays and visible light. We are exposed to low levels of UV light from the sun every day, although much of the UV energy is absorbed by the ozone layer. Considered a natural disinfectant, UV light is divided into three bands: UVA, UVB and UVC. UVC, which is UV light with the shortest wavelengths has the strongest germicidal effect and is the one used for disinfection.

How does UV disinfection work?

UV light penetrates viruses, bacteria and other infectious particles and destroys their DNA structure, making the microorganisms unable to multiply. When a microorganism is unable to multiply, it is considered dead since it cannot reproduce within a host and is no longer infectious. UV light destroys all microorganisms, including drug resistant bacteria.

What are the best wavelengths for disinfection?

UVC light, with wavelengths between 200 nm and 280 nm, has the strongest germicidal effect. The most effective germicidal wavelength occurs at a peak of 265 nm at which DNA absorbs UV light the most. Mercury-based lamps operating at low vapor pressure emit UVC light at 253.7 nm. UVC LED lamps emit UVC light at selectable wavelengths between 255 and 280 nm. PureFize® creates UVC light with a very broad germicidal spectrum with a peak wavelength at 267 nm.

How long does it take to disinfect something?

To reach a certain level of disinfection you need a certain UV dose, which is a function of UV power and time. In other words, for a given application the higher the UV power used, the faster it goes. Many products are designed for a disinfection time in the order a few minutes or even less. When tested at Eurofins Laboratories, PureFize removed 99.9% (log3) of E. coli bacteria in 80 seconds and 99.9999% (log6) in about four minutes. As far as we know, PureFize is the only UVC technology that has reached log8 (a 99.999999% germ reduction), which is as close to real sterilization as it is possible. PureFize works in similar way on all bacteria, viruses and other germs, which means the object cleaned is safe for use after only a few minutes.

Is it safe to use?

UVC lamps have been used for many decades to sanitize water, air and surfaces. Objects disinfected with PureFize are completely safe to use. However, UVC light should be kept away from skin and eyes because it can damage them and any other cells it comes into contact with, which is also how it kills microbes.

The safest type of UVC disinfection device is one that allows you to place items inside a closed space where the light will be used, which shields you from any accidental direct exposure. Any kind of shield, such as ordinary glass, plastic or even a wooden or paper box will stop UVC radiation.
