Retrofit UV disinfection for split system air conditioners

UK: Blue Diamond has introduced a UV-C air disinfection unit that can be fitted to any new or pre-installed mini split fan coil unit. 

The BlueScience UV-C technology has been developed to provide an easy retrofit system for all existing air-conditioning equipment to treat and protect the air, by constant disinfection, every time it passes through the unit. 

UV-C disinfection is proven technology used in the food processing and water industries. Through germicidal irradiation, the UV-C light attacks the DNA/DNR of micro-organisms, killing 99.9% and rendering bacteria and viruses harmless and unable to reproduce or spread. 

The kit, which includes a UV LED drive and 700mm UV-C LED strip, can be fitted in less than 10 minutes, says Blue Diamond.

It offers a number of possible locations: below the drip tray, inside ducting or above ceiling.
