Air Disinfection Efficiency

Disinfection performance varies based on the volume of air (cfm) passing through the diffuser.

The percentages below are the minimum single-pass disinfection rates for UV-C irradiation only. Air filtration has not been considered in these calculations. These values are based on the lamp’s weakest intensity after two years, when a replacement is due. Performance rates were calculated by a third party company expert in UV irradiation. Click here to view the calculations report.

A third party lab also tested UV Diffusers’ air disinfection performance against SARS-CoV-2 to validate the calculated results. The measured results surpassed these values with a single pass SARS-CoV-2 deactivation rate of 99.949% while supplying 458 cfm of air. Click here to view the test report.

Important: the use of this device is a supplement to and not a substitute for standard infection control practices; users must continue to follow all current infection control practices, including those related to the cleaning and disinfection of environmental surfaces.
