How Can You Tell If A UV Sterilizer Is Working?

In modern times of development, new things are coming to notice as the essentials, and UV room sterilizer is one of them. UV sterilization is a fast-growing option to prevent the spread of hospital, home, and accessory acquired infections. Purposely, it is used to control diseases by stopping the spread of microorganisms from one place to another. 

When operated correctly, free-floating organisms are killed by the UV light coming out from the sterilizer. It's a myth that UV light causes cancer, as it activates carcinogens, but it's a false one. These lights have no residual effects and will not kill anything or anyone else other than microorganisms. 

How Do they Work

It utilizes a germicidal fluorescent lamp that produces light at a wavelength, which approximately 254 nanometers, also known as 2537 angstrom. The water with the bacteria and algae passes over the bulb and is irradiated with this wavelength to kill them. Here, the light penetrates the bacteria to get mutated with the DNA, preventing us from microorganisms. 

Factors of Effective UV Sterilizers

Size and type of organism

Theoretically, the size and type of a microorganism matter the most to UV radiations. For instance, we know it kills all kinds of bacteria, algae, viruses, and protozoa. Still, protozoans are relatively more extensive than others, so that they might require a higher dose of UV radiation than smaller ones. There are also variations between several organisms of the identical type like some of them are more immune to UV radiation, and some are not. 

The energy of bulb

The measure of UV light generated by the bulb is shown in the wattage of the bulb. Bulbs with a tremendous wattage allow more UV light approximately those having less wattage. The germicidal fluorescent lamp's sense to provide UV light decreases with age, and in most events, the bulb needs to be reinstalled after every six months. UV light is best offered only at the temperature of 104-110°F; the cooler temperature results in lesser output.

UV diffusion

If the UV light cannot insert the water, it will not be productive, and this characteristic should be analyzed firstly. Higher water turbidity will reduce infiltration, and that's what we use the stabilizer. Before you buy it, make sure to check if the UV radiations have gone through biological and mechanical filters so that the water remains clear and enters the stabilizer to work accurately on the microorganism.
