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.

In enclosed systems, reducing shadowing and ensuring uniform energy distribution is critical.  Porex Virtek not only can reflect up to 98% of UV energy (allowing it to bounce around until it is absorbed) but it reflects it in a random pattern meaning the entire chamber receives uniform dosage regardless of shape or UV source location.  Aluminum and other metallic surfaces can have much lower initial reflectivity and can reflect in a specular pattern, creating hot and cold spots.

Robotic & Mobile Disinfection Systems

Robotic & Mobile Disinfection Systems

When designing mobile UVC disinfection system, having a uniform light distribution with minimal hot and cold spots is critical.  This is especially critical when using UV LEDs which can be more point sources of light. The highly diffuse Porex Virtek PTFE will efficiently spread UV energy in all directions, ensuring all targeted surfaces receive uniform energy. Specular reflectors can create regions of high and low exposure, which can be problematic.

Handheld Sterilizer

Hand-held Disinfection Systems

Portable UV systems are rapidly growing in popularity.  For areas such as self-service kiosks or airplanes that are touched by many people, being able to properly disinfect is critical.  Portable UVC disinfection systems are now being utilized instead of chemicals to quickly and efficiently disinfect.  The highly diffuse Porex Virtek PTFE media is critical in ensuring these hand-held disinfection systems reflect uniformly across the target surface.
