UVC BODYLight™ – WT Germ Killer™
Model 8910UVC | UVC Explosion Proof Rechargeable Battery-Powered LED Light
Western Technology is very aware of the urgent need to address the safety of workers in our current pandemic situation. We have the technology and capability to ensure deployment of a dependable germicidal UVC lighting system. Our solution is the WT-Germ Killer™. This UVC LED light is built around our existing BODYLight™ platform that is currently used at a well known aircraft manufacturer. It is a rugged handheld battery-operated light equipped with 265nm UVC LEDs and visible “red” LEDs for visual assistance.
UVC Light Emissions
The projected angle of the light emission is over 120°, providing wide UVC coverage and an efficient sanitizing zone of germicidal radiation. The “red”” visible light emission is provided not only to see where to disinfect, but also to provide a visual reference as to where the invisible UVC light is projected. This is for your safety and the safety of others during operation.
This light produces 540mW of 265nm UVC power, which ensures a rapid 1-second kill to germs¹ when held 6-inches from a surface. Further, the generated ozone at the surface will provide a lingering kill zone for a few seconds after the irradiant light has left the field of application.
The bumpers on the WT-Germ Killer™ UVC BODYLight™ are fluorescent orange in color to allow for quick recognition of the purpose of this light. Further the glow-in-the-dark features on the top of the light head and the ring around the battery pack will continue to glow for about 24 hours to aid in FOD safety.
Note: UVC option requires operator wear PPE and confirmation required training has been completed.
UVC 265nm can be hazardous to human health with extended unprotected exposure.
¹ It has been shown that a 1-second exposure of 265nm UVC light at 1.93 mW/cm2 was sufficient to induce a 100% germicidal effect on microorganisms. (Note: 262nm UVC radiation has been shown to be the peak germicidal wavelength.)
