The effectiveness of disinfection by UV-C irradiation is presented as the safest, most efficient and economical option for sectors such as Health, Hospitality, Commerce, Office Buildings, Food, Transport, Packaging and Packaging Industry, Water Treatment and Education, among other areas.
In this way, the air in closed rooms, water, food or means of transport are completely disinfected of viruses, bacteria, mold and any type of pathogens.
UV-C Hospital Disinfection
The use of ultraviolet light systems is being used more and more in healthcare facilities to disinfect operating rooms, waiting rooms, emergency boxes, common areas, rooms and patients.
By their very nature, in Hospitals and Health Centers in general, the viral and bacterial load is highly concentrated and, precisely because of the COVID-19 pandemic, now, more than ever, they require greater urgency to implement UV-C irradiation technology, since it significantly reduces the risk of infection both in operating rooms and in other spaces where patients and professionals are more exposed.
The air disinfection process is continuous and traceable, showing the parameters of the disinfection itself in real time from any device and wall display.
PATIENTS AND PROFESSIONALS PROTECTED
The UV-C air disinfection system is in permanent operation, so that any type of virus or bacteria suspended in the atmosphere become inactive, preventing their spread.
ELIMINATES POST-SURGICAL INFECTION RISKS
It has been shown that the risk of contamination is close to 0.1%, after surgery performed in operating rooms disinfected with UV-C technology.

ROOMS AND OPERATING ROOMS DISINFECTED IN TEN MINUTES
UV-C lamps sterilize all contaminated air in the space used by a patient with greater speed, precision and safety than through any other disinfection method.
UV-C disinfection for Hospitality and Commerce
Hotels, Restaurants, Cafes, Shopping Centers, Supermarkets, Leisure Centers, Shops of all kinds, and in general, closed spaces with a large influx and traffic of the public, it is proven that the presence of a single person, without symptoms of illness, but infected with a virus such as Coronavirus or Flu, can cause an exponential viral spread to other people.
Expelled viruses, suspended in the air, can be inhaled by another person, who in turn becomes infected. These pathogens enter traditional air circulation systems, and are then expelled intact, waiting to enter the bodies of other people.
The UV-C irradiation implemented in the ventilation systems of these spaces, precisely allows the inactivation of viruses and bacteria that have entered the air conditioning ducts, destroying their reproductive capacity.
100% OPEN FOR BUSINESS
The traceability which air disinfection by UV-C radiation possesses confirms that the air is disinfected in real time, thus allowing Restaurants, Hotels, Stores, etc. to optimize their space and schedule 100%.
CALMAND FAITHFUL CUSTOMERS
Having the confidence of being in a closed space without the risk of infection will allow customers to enjoy a coffee, take a trip, go shopping and return to their consumer and leisure habits without fear. They will be able to share their experiences with potential clients and develop a loyalty routine around these spaces that ensure their health and well-being.
Workers are exposed to a higher viral load, which accumulates in the air throughout the working day, making them the most vulnerable to infection. UV-C disinfection of your workplace will protect them from disease and also preserve their job position.
UV-C Office Disinfection
Despite the fact that some companies have had to resort to teleworking due to the restrictions on using their offices, not all organizations can apply this type of measures to survive.
The use of UV-C technology for the sterilization of viruses, bacteria and even agents that cause allergies enables safe and efficient face-to-face work without incurring health and economic risks that are so harmful to the company.
REDUCTION OF ABSENCES DUE TO ILLNESS
More than 6,900 million euros is the direct cost, suffered by companies in Spain, due to absenteeism, according to the latest officially registered data. Offering staff a workplace that is disinfected of any virus and bacteria would drastically help reduce the number of medical leave.
Efficiency and quality of work increase when workplaces guarantee the impossibility of infection of any disease by airborne transmission.
- Fewer staff off sick, therefore, more work done in less time
- Less fear and anxiety about going to work
- Less need to work remotely
CONTINUITY OF BUSINESS ACTIVITY
Thanks to the disinfection in the ventilation ducts using UV-C, which guarantees an air free of pathogens, the office becomes a safe place for each member of the staff to go to their workplace to carry out their daily activity, avoiding closures or temporary shutdowns that can negatively affect the business.
UV-C Food Disinfection
In appropriate doses UV-C rays deactivate all micro-organisms that spoil food, including bacteria, yeasts and mold spores, as well as other food-borne pathogens such as viruses.
Unlike chemical treatments for food, UV-C rays do not introduce toxins or residues.
Thanks to the high-power Xenon pulsed light lamps that apply flashes or pulses of intense light to the product, releasing a large amount of energy quickly to the surface of the product, the organoleptic properties of the food remain unaltered.
Likewise, UV-C radiation can be used throughout the entire chain of a food plant, from the product, to its handling phase, to its packaging, thus avoiding any type of infectious risk throughout the process.
LONGER SHELF LIFE OF FOODS
UV-C radiation sterilizes the surface of foods, which frequently contains viruses, bacteria and other pathogens that accelerate its deterioration.
INACTIVATION OF VIRUSES AND PATHOGENS IN FRESH PRODUCTS
It avoids contamination in the processing phase at the plant and before packaging, which can cause an infection in the consumer.
STERILIZATION OF RECURRING BACTERIA SUCH AS E-COLI
It eradicates pathogens that frequently cause infection in consumers and are often reported by the media.
UV-C disinfection of packing and packaging
Containers contaminated with bacteria, viruses or mold are one of the main causes of food infection.
Micro-organisms in packaging can often greatly reduce the shelf life of products and lead to costly product recalls.
UV-C irradiation disinfects all types of Packaging and Containers such as boxes, caps, bottles, cartons, tubes, films and sheets.
DRY DISINFECTION METHOD
UV-C irradiation does not damage the surface of the packaging itself, it is a process that does not require the use of liquids or chemical solutions.
The disinfection process only takes a few seconds to complete, so it consumes little energy.
99.99% DISINFECTION GUARANTEE
The pathogens that adhere to the surface of the packaging do not resist UV-C irradiation, becoming completely inactive and losing their ability to reproduce.
UV-C Transport Disinfection
UV-C irradiation is the means of germicidal disinfection of the air in aeroplanes, airports, trains, stations, trans-Atlantic ships, passenger ships, port and stations – key to preventing the spread of infectious diseases throughout the world, and therefore, avoiding pandemics.
Also, in environments where there is a high traffic of travellers, such as buses, subways, local public transport stations, it is essential to confirm that the air is always disinfected.
NO BATTERIES OR ELECTRIC CHARGE REQUIRED
UV-C lamps have a life of 40,000 hours, so their operation depends exclusively on an on/off switch.
PASSENGERS CAN SEE THE AIR QUALITY IN REAL TIME
Through displays placed on the walls of each means of transport, the disinfection process itself is shown at all times.
DISINFECTED AIR 24/7
It is not necessary for the plane, train, bus or boat to be unoccupied to carry out the disinfection. UV-C disinfection technology is continually inactivating airborne viruses and bacteria, with no person being exposed to such radiation.
UV-C Water Disinfection
UV-C rays are able to pass through the density of water to act as germicides, sterilizing or eliminating (depending on the intensity of the irradiation) viruses, bacteria, yeast, mold and algae.
This disinfection technology is increasingly in demand in the food sector, in the pharmaceutical industry, in aquaculture, in the field of hospital disinfection and in all kinds of areas that require the disinfection of liquids and surfaces without resorting to the use of chemical products, which makes it a safe, harmless and efficient system.
NO ALTERATION OF THE PHYSICAL-CHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF WATER
The water that passes through the UV lamp maintains the physicochemical properties that it had before entering.
CLEAN WATER WITHOUT RESIDUES
The process only disinfects by eliminating pathogens, while other water disinfection technologies such as chlorine, bleach, ozone, chlorine dioxide and others, will alter the water, they can even generate harmful by-products and residues that threaten health and cause corrosive effects.
NO CHANGE TO THE ODOR OR TASTE OF THE WATER
UV-C water disinfection is very interesting for its consumption, both as water itself, and as a component in food, since it retains its organoleptic properties.
UV-C Education Disinfection
Beyond taking the temperature of students and teachers, keeping the windows open (even in cold months), maintaining safe distance in classrooms and wearing masks, much more drastic measures are needed in colleges and universities to avoid the spread of diseases.
The disinfection of the air using UV-C in the ventilation ducts in classrooms, corridors, dining room, library, assembly hall, etc., will keep spaces free of viruses and bacteria.
GOODBYE TO AERBORNE INFECTION
UV-C irradiation not only sterilizes the Coronavirus, but also common diseases such as the Flu, the Common Cold, and serious illnesses such as Tuberculosis or Meningitis.
TRANQUILITY FOR FAMILIES
The younger the student is, the greater their capacity to contract viruses and infect people around them, even without presenting symptoms. The risk of this is radically reduced with the implementation of UV-C technology to disinfect Educational Centers.
TEACHING WITHOUT INTERRUPTION
Keeping the air of Colleges and Universities clean of all pathogens will contribute to not suspending classes either partially or totally, not holding classes remotely and, therefore, not reducing the quality of teaching.
UV-C Pharmacy Disinfection
One of the professions most exposed to contagion of Covid-19 or other types of airborne diseases is that of the pharmacist. The sector has suffered a large number of casualties, temporary closures, overtime or concern in the workforce. I-ON is a great help to pharmacies to prevent contagion, both professionals and customers.
FOR ANY TYPE OF PHARMACY
Whether old or modern, large or small, I-ON guarantees the disinfection of the air in each Pharmacy where it is installed.
MOTIVATION AND SAFETY FOR STAFF
