UV-STICK-AX-SCR is composed of:
The device works by direct irradiation of UV-C rays. When the lampis turned on, it reduces the microbial load in the air and on the surfaces enlightened by the UV lamp. For example, in 2÷3 seconds, at a distance of 10 cm from the device, you will achieve a 99% reduction of the bacteria Bacillus, Coli, Clostridium, Legionella, Vibrio, Salmonella, Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, etc. The use of this device is allowed only in absence of personnel inside the AHU environment. In case of opening of a sector of the AHU, the switching-off of the lamps must be provided, to avoid personnel’s affections at eyes (conjunctivitis) and skin (rash). The programming of the switching-on of the device can be made using specially designed electronic control units (MASTER series), which, above all in case of installation of various equipment, can manage various operations such as:
- Timing. It is possible to program the duration of irradiation using of a timer.
- Turning-off. A safety system switches off the lamps when people enter inside the AHU duct.
- Failure alarm. In case of failure of one or more lamps, it will trigger a warning light on the framework clean contact.
- Hour Counter. To control the duration of a lamp and substitute it at the end of its lifetime.
UV-STICK...AX-SCR device includes a series of UV-C reglette of reduced size and different lengths, to irradiate thermal batteries (coils) and internal filter sections of AHU - Air Handling Unit – in central air conditioning systems; their purpose is to eliminate the microbial load.
The device is a reglette built entirely in extruded anodized aluminum, IP55 protection and fitted with a reflecting screen in mirror bright aluminum, to increase the power of radiation, through the reflection of UV-C proportion that would otherwise be wasted in the opposite direction to the useful ones.
The extruded aluminum case, contains special electronic ballasts to maximize yield and duration of UV-C lamp.
To avoid flying splinters of glass after the collapse of the UV lamp, a protection of the UV lamp by means of the special thermo-retracted sheath UVLON®-PIPE (Tetrafluoroethylene), with UV-C transparency >85%. can be provided, always as an option UVLON®-PIPE is a patented system to withstand the wear and tear; it has low adhesion to any product or substance, is resistant to any aggressive chemical at high or low temperatures. It is a polymer conforms to F.D.A. tests for use with foodstuffs.
The constituent materials of UV-STICK...AX allow its use even in harsh operating conditions (high humidity, low temperatures, etc..), or where conditions require a high resistance to chemicals and weathering.
We suggest to install one or more UV-STICK…AX-SCR in a layout that allow the device/s to irradiate coil’s surface entirely, to obtain an homogenous treatment of inner surfaces.
For this reason Light Progress offers a special and adjustable mounting kit to install devices properly.
Mounting kit is made in anodized aluminum, it can be used to install devices in serie, attacching them directly to AHU’s wall.
Devices are connected through SCR serial connectors, it is possible to switch them all ON through only one power supply cable
UV-STICK-SCR is built with high quality, extremely resistant components, it works perfectly in difficult operative conditions (high Humidity, low temperatures, etc).
