Ultraviolet Treatment

Ultraviolet Treatment

AMV Systems has a long and established history of delivering exceptional quality and service across our Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning portfolio.  Our knowledge of fans, motors, variable-speed drives, air handling units and associated equipment is unparalleled. A natural extension to our product range is the installation of ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) solutions for AHU’s within HVAC systems

Buildings and facilities managers looking to improve indoor air quality and energy efficiency need look no further than AMV Systems. We supply and install a range of chemical free, low maintenance UVGI systems.

We work exclusively with Gibbons Engineering Group to design and install their Total Coil Disinfection System (formerly CoilCare) and the Plasma Air range of Bipolar Ionisation Products (BIP) This valuable partnership enables AMV Systems manage the entire life cycle of the HVAC system. From system testing, modelling, specification, supply and installation, to the complete aftercare of the system, we help maintain the systems performance and overall life. As part of the modelling process we offer airflow testing and coil sampling before and after the UVGI system is installed. Whilst on site we will survey the AHU and HVAC system to ensure that the anticipated results from UVGI are not compromised by existing issues.

Our aim is to deliver quality and reliability at the lowest cost of ownership in the industry.

What is Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI)

UVGI is an established means of powerful disinfection and can be used to prevent the spread of certain infectious diseases. The low-pressure mercury (Hg) discharge lamps commonly used in UVGI applications emit shortwave UVC band light, primarily at 254 nm, the wavelength that disrupts DNA and RNA. UVC radiation inactivates microbes by damaging their deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and ribonucleic acid (RNA).This process prevents cell reproduction and after sufficient exposure, eradicates contaminants such as bacteria, viruses and mould. The principal mode of inactivation occurs when the absorption of a photon forms pyrimidine dimers between adjacent thymine bases and renders the microbe incapable of replicating.
