Ultraviolet Detector | Germicidal Lamp Intensity Test
No matter in theory or in practice, there are various methods of disinfection and sterilization, such as boiling disinfection, alcohol disinfection, pasteurization, ultraviolet disinfection, chlorine disinfection. Ultraviolet disinfection is most common in the medical and health industry. If used with an ultraviolet detector, the ultraviolet sterilization intensity can be controlled to a very stable and effective level. Ultraviolet detector is an instrument specially used to measure the intensity of ultraviolet rays. In addition to the medical and health industries, we often apply it to ultraviolet intensity detection in industries such as water resources measurement, color curing and ink curing. The role of the ultraviolet detector in the hospital is mainly to test the condition of the ultraviolet germicidal lamp.
There are many types of UV germicidal lamps on the market and the ultraviolet detector required are also very different. But according to the wavelength of UV, they can be divided into three categories: UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C. The third type we see in the hospital is generally the third, because its radiation intensity is suitable (253.7nm), which can penetrate the bacterial shell strongly and reach the DNA or RNA that kills bacteria inside. It is tested using an ultraviolet detector. Ultraviolet germicidal lamps in hospitals are mainly installed in doctors 'dressing rooms, operating rooms, ICUs and other environments that require a high degree of sterility. Its sterilization and disinfection capabilities are directly related to hospital infections and patients' postoperative infections. Under normal conditions, ultraviolet germicidal lamps that meet the testing standards will be sterilized in a short time, greatly reducing exogenous infections and reducing the risk of pathogens invading the human body. Therefore, the role of ultraviolet detectors in hospitals is also important. The role it plays is a supervisor, strictly controlling the quality of UV germicidal lamps.
The inspection and maintenance of ultraviolet lamps in the medical industry must not only consider the radiation intensity at the time of its operation, but also need to estimate its service life in combination with reality. Under normal circumstances, the ultraviolet detector detects that the lamp with a radiation intensity of 90 μW/cm² can work for one year. Its radiation capacity is gradually declining in the period of this year. If the ultraviolet lamp is used for more than one year, its irradiation intensity will be reduced to about 70μW/cm². Not all ultraviolet lamps have the same development trend, so it is critical that technicians in the hospital conduct regular inspections.
The ultraviolet detector is the gold standard for measuring the radiation capacity of ultraviolet germicidal lamps. A high-quality ultraviolet detector can sensitively and accurately display the ultraviolet intensity value and display common data with reference. Unlike the ultraviolet test strip, the ultraviolet detector can be reused. The electronic device is more professional and objective.
The LS126C ultraviolet detector independently developed by Linshang Technology Company fully protects the safety of surveyors and avoids radiation hazards on the basis of simple measurement. It is also more delicate and feasible to use in hospitals. It is used for monitoring the irradiance of various sterilization ultraviolet lamps. This ultraviolet detector also has strong operability, whether it is a technician or a medical staff can quickly detect according to the operation guide. If you need to test the uv irradiation intensity of the UVC LED light sources, LS125+UVCLED-X0 UVC light meter can be used.
