The Magical Function of the UV Light Meter APP
The recent outbreak of new coronavirus pneumonia has caused various types of sterilization products such as disinfectant water, alcohol, alcohol cotton tablets, disposable hand sanitizers and other products to be out of stock. UV germicidal lamps, which often appear in hospitals and other places, have also changed. Demand exceeds supply. Ultraviolet germicidal lamp can sterilize air, articles and even water exposed to ultraviolet light. The germicidal lamp UV light meter is an important way to ensure the normal operation of the germicidal lamp. This article will take you to understand the the magical effect of UV meter APP.
1. The advantages and disadvantages of ultraviolet germicidal lamps
On many occasions, ultraviolet germicidal lamps are used to regularly disinfect indoors, but do germicidal lamps really reach the standard for sterilization? The ultraviolet rays with germicidal effect are mainly in the UVC band (200-280nm). Our common germicidal lamps use low-pressure mercury lamps with a peak wavelength of 254nm. Low-pressure mercury lamp sterilization technology is more mature and has a better sterilization effect, but the UVC band ultraviolet rays emitted by the germicidal lamp are also harmful to the human body. Long-term exposure to UVC ultraviolet rays can cause skin pigmentation and rough skin aging. Various cancers and cataracts. Therefore, when using a UV light meter to detect germicidal lamps, it is best for the inspector to leave the test site.
2. The magnetic function of sterilization lamp UV light meter APP
Experts from the Institute of Viral Prevention and Control of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention pointed out in a 2003 report that using a UVC germicidal lamp with an intensity of more than 90 μW / cm² to irradiate SARS coronavirus can kill SARS virus after 60 minutes. (The detailed detection method is not repeated here.) The 90 μW / cm² here refers to the irradiation intensity of the ultraviolet lamp in use. Many UV germicidal lamps will reach the peak of UV radiation intensity at the moment the lamp is turned on. Then the radiation intensity will decrease. If you buy a poor quality germicidal lamp, the irradiation intensity is too low. It will affect the sterilization effect.
How to measure ultraviolet radiation intensity? UV meter would be your best choice. At present, the latest LS126C UV light meter from Linshang Technology is equipped with a UV light meter APP. This UV light meter can transmit data to the mobile phone APP via Bluetooth. We can read the data obtained by the instrument test in real time through the APP. Turn on the instrument, connect the instrument to the mobile phone APP and place it under the germicidal lamp. Then you can leave the test site, turn on the ultraviolet light, you can read the real-time irradiation intensity at any time through the mobile phone APP. The maximum, minimum and average values are recorded on the instrument.
All in all, with the help of this UV light meter APP, users can achieve real-time, accurate and comprehensive monitoring the germicidal lamps to ensure the germicidal efficacy of ultraviolet lamps.
