AirKlean UVGI


AirKlean UVGI  / Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation


The AirKlean UVGI is a “plug and play” unit, specifically designed to disinfect air in confined spaces, such as: Hospital Rooms and Wards, Operating Theatres, Lifts and Lobbies, Waiting Rooms, Public Spaces, through to Retail Units and Food Production and Storage; anywhere that requires infection control. With dimensions measuring in at a compact 192 x 228 x 740 (HWDmm)*, the AirKlean UVGI features both ceiling and wall mounting options (air is drawn through the unit via its internal fan). The unit features 2x 95W UV-C germicidal lamps which emit light at a wavelength of 254nm. These high intensity UV-C lamps eliminate over 99% of airborne microbes such as viruses, bacteria, spores and moulds. The AirKlean UVGI is finished in grade 304 stainless steel, weighing in at just 7kg.


Introduction to UVGI • Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation

Ultraviolet light in the c-band range (225–302 nm) is lethal to micro-organisms and is referred to as ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI). UVGI works by cross linking nucleic acids (DNA & RNA) to prevent replication and proliferation of micro-organisms such as viruses, bacteria, spores, moulds, yeast and fungi. It is important to use the correct UV-C dosage in order to achieve high kill rates. Low intensity UV-C can be used for surface treatment as there is a long UV-C exposure time whereas high intensity UV-C is required for air treatment as the exposure time is short. Plasma Clean UVGI systems are sized to achieve up to 99% microbial kill rate for common microbes based on UV-C dosage tables in the scientific literature as well as independent testing carried out by Plasma Clean.

Plasma Clean’s germicidal range consists of the CoilKlean UVGI for surface treatment of heat exchange coils, the AirKlean UVGI unit which is a standalone air cleaner and the TechniKlean UVGI series designed to treat air in building ventilation systems.

Air Treatment using AirKlean UVGI

The AirKlean UVGI is designed to disinfect air in enclosed spaces – from offices and public buildings to cold stores and food production areas, in fact anywhere that requires infection and odour control.

Sizing of Equipment – AirKlean UVGI

  • One Airklean UVGI unit has a coverage of up to 100m2.
  • To accurately specify the correct equipment to ensure optimum germicidal performance, the following information is required:
    • Height x Width x Length of the room where the UVGI equipment is to be installed
    • Room layout to assess air circulation
    • Room air changes per hour
    • Type of micro-organism that is being treated.

Installation

The unit is ceiling or wall mounted and has an internal fan which draws air through the unit. Here, the air passes over high intensity UV-C emitters which act on airborne microbes such as viruses, bacteria, spores, moulds, yeast and fungi. For best results, locate the unit where there is free-flowing air circulation. The standard unit does not produce ozone, and has light guards to prevent UV-C light escaping. As a result, the AirKlean UVGI can be used in places where people are present. Ozonating models are available on request, please enquire. For surge protection purposes it is recommended to install a Class D MCB circuit breaker in the electrical supply.

Kit Contents

  • AirKlean UVGI unit complete with UV-C emitters (installation required)
  • Mains power cable – 2m
  • Screws and fixings for mounting are not supplied.
  • Accessories
  • Teflon coated lamps for food safety applications.
  • Ozonating lamps.

Safety

For UV-C safety, the unit has internal UV-C light guards to prevent UV light escaping.

Maintenance

  • Servicing is normally confined to the regular cleaning of the UV-C lamps as part of a maintenance programme managed by your facility department or as per maintenance contract with 5ine Concepts.
  • For maximum efficiency establish a regular cleaning cycle based on routine checks of the UV lamps during the first few months of use. 
  • The UV lamps have a normal operating life of 9,000 hrs after which time they should be replaced.

Air Treatment using TechniKlean UVGI

The TechniKlean UVGI range has 2, 6 & 8 lamp options and designed to fit inside an Air Handling Unit where the linear velocity is approximately 2.5m/s. 

The design duty for this range is as follows:

Sizing of Equipment – TechniKlean UVGI

To accurately specify the correct equipment to ensure optimum germicidal performance, the following information is required:

  • Volume flow rate – m3/s
  • Height x Width and Length of the AHU compartment where the UVGI equipment is to be installed
  • Temperature
  • % recirculating or fresh air?*
  • Type of micro-organism that is being treated**

Installation

For best results, TechniKlean UVGI 2L systems are to be installed with the UV-C lamps parallel with air flow known as ‘axial flow’ configuration and UVGI 6 & 8L systems are to be installed with the UV-C lamps perpendicular to air flow known as ‘crossflow’ configuration. This can be achieved by installing runners into the air handling unit (not supplied). It is important to ensure that the UV-C light intensity throughout the kill zone is maintained and systems must be designed so that the maximum distance from the lamp to the edge of the effective kill zone is no more than 300mm from the lamp. This will create an effective kill zone of 600mm for the TechniKlean UVGI 6L and 8L units. For surge protection purposes it is recommended to install a Class D MCB circuit breaker in the electrical supply.

Kit Contents

  • TechniKlean UVGI lamp rack with built in ballast box
  • Mains power cable – 2m

Accessories

  • Control panel with air flow interlock and fault relay with BMS connectivity. Other control panels are available, please enquire.
  • UV light guards
  • Safety
  • For UV-C safety, an internal safety switch is located in the 6L and 8L lamp frame which requires a door mounted actuator to activate, please enquire.

Maintenance

  • Servicing is normally confined to the regular cleaning of the UV-C lamps as part of a maintenance programme managed by your facility department or as per maintenance contract with 5ine Concepts.
  • For maximum efficiency establish a regular cleaning cycle based on routine checks of the UV lamps during the first few months of use.

CoilKlean UVGI


CoilKlean UVGI / Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation


A common problem with building ventilation systems has been microbes growing and forming biofilms on heat exchange coils. These sticky, glue-like substances trap dust and reduce heat exchange efficiency; resulting in higher running costs. Manual cleaning damages the coils but by exposing the coils to constant UV-C light, biofilm growth is prevented. 

This is where Plasma Clean’s CoilKlean UVGI comes into its own; the unit (a modular system which offers the flexibility of installation in any size. Air Handling Unit, Fan Coil or Cassette Unit) keeps the coil clean, perpetually disinfecting 99+% of viruses, bacteria, mould, spores and fungi. 

Not only does this eradicate microbial growth, but it also helps to maintain optimum heat transfer across the coil surface and maximises energy efficiency. 

By installing the CoilKlean UVGI, maintenance costs are reduced. There is a reduction in the transmission of airborne infection and odours throughout the building, reducing staff and customer illness. The CoilKlean UVGI can be installed into new developments and can be retrofitted into existing HVAC systems.

Ultraviolet light in the c-band range (225–302 nm) is lethal to micro-organisms and is referred to as ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI). UVGI works by cross linking nucleic acids (DNA & RNA) to prevent replication and proliferation of micro-organisms such as viruses, bacteria, spores, moulds, yeast and fungi.

Air Treatment using CoilKlean UVGI

UVC light prevents microbial biofilms forming on cooling coils in Air Handling Units. Biofilms are formed by the growth of mould, fungi and bacteria on the coil surfaces which are an ideal breeding ground for micro-organisms. A sticky glue-like substance produced also traps dust. By irradiating the coils with high intensity UV-C light, the coil keeps clean and maintains optimum heat transfer across the coil surface. There is also a reduced maintenance cost and an improvement in IAQ. This is a modular system which offers the flexibility of installation in any size Air Handling Unit, Fan Coil or Cassette Unit.

Sizing of Equipment – CoilKlean UVGI

To accurately specify the correct equipment to ensure optimum germicidal performance, the following information is required:

  • Height x width of the heat exchange coil
  • Available length of the AHU compartment where the UVGI equipment is to be installed
  • Temperature

Installation

UV-C lamps are to be located 300-500mm upstream or downstream from the coil surface and sized to provide an equal distribution of UV coverage. Installing the equipment downstream has the advantage of also treating the condensate pan. Where more than one row of lamps is used, lamps are to be located a maximum distance of 900mm apart. The ballast box and control panel are to be located close to the AHU (within 2.5m of the UV-C lamps). The Coil Clean system is designed to be moisture resistant and wired using moisture resistant conduit. For surge protection purposes it is recommended to install a Class D MCB circuit breaker in the electrical supply.

Kit Contents

  • CoilKlean UVGI lamp rack with separate ballast box
  • Mains power cable – 2m
  • Installation kit

Accessories

  • Control panel with air flow interlock and fault relay with BMS connectivity. Other control panels are available, please enquire.
  • Door safety switch

Safety

For UV-C safety, the units are to be interlocked with the door and air flow to ensure the UV lamps de-energise when the AHU is opened, please enquire.

Maintenance

A Plasma Clean service contract is available (please enquire plasma@5ineconcepts.com) and in any case Plasma Clean would recommend:

  • Servicing is normally confined to the regular cleaning of the UV-C lamps as part of a maintenance programme managed your facility department or as per maintenance contract with 5ine Concepts. 
  • For maximum efficiency establish a regular cleaning cycle based on routine checks of the UV lamps during the first few months of use.
  • The UV lamps have a normal operating life of up to 9,000hrs with no more than 20% loss in output, after which time they should be replaced.
  • Note that the system is designed to operate optimally using Plasma Clean UVGI germicidal lamps.
