How to Optimize UV Disinfection Efficiency Using Microporous PTFE
UVC Air Disinfection
Ensure properly disinfected air with Porex Virtek reflective media lining your UVC air disinfection product
With the recent heightened awareness around clean indoor air, utilizing a UVC system within an air handling unit has become a common and effective solution. UVC energy is proven to deactivate most pathogens; however, to be effective, the UV energy must be uniformly dispersed within the reaction chamber. Learn more about how Porex Virtek PTFE can increase the efficacy and efficiency of your UV air disinfection system.
UVC Surface Disinfection
Ensure uniform surface disinfection by using Porex Virtek reflective media in your UVC disinfection system
Properly disinfected surfaces are critical to slowing the spread of illness and infection. Chemical disinfectants can be damaging to equipment, toxic to people and ineffective if not used properly. Utilizing UVC light to disinfect surfaces has increased in popularity and is proving to be extremely effective. However, the most important aspect of surface disinfection is the proper distribution of the UV energy. Porex Virtek highly reflective PTFE is highly Lambertian – meaning it spreads reflected light very uniformly across the surface. Whether you are designing a room disinfection system or a fully enclosed system, Porex Virtek PTFE is the UV reflective material of choice.
UVC Water Disinfection and Deactivation
Ensure properly disinfected water with Porex Virtek reflective media lining your UVC water treatment systems
Ensuring drinking water is free of bacteria and pathogens is a global concern, and utilizing a UVC system within a complete water treatment system is one of the most effective ways to achieve this. UVC energy has been proven to deactivate most pathogens; however, to be effective, the UV energy must be uniformly dispersed within the reaction chamber. earn more about how Porex Virtek PTFE can increase the efficacy and efficiency of your UV water disinfection system.
UV Specialty Applications
Porex Virtek can be used in numerous specialty reflectivity applications
Porex Virtek has extremely high reflectivity in a broad range of wavelengths (from 200 – 1400 nm) making it very useful in a myriad of specialty applications. With its very low energy absorption and highly Lambertian (diffuse) characteristics, Porex Virtek can improve the overall performance of your device.
