The main field of application of germicidal lamps is the direct and indirect degermination of the air. Microorganisms floating around freely in the air are affected by UV radiation where conventional methods of disinfection fail or cannot be used. Degermination of the air causes a significant drop of the overall level of germs in the air because the natural air circulation takes every air layer through into radiated area.
When sterilizing solid substances, bacteria in the radiation shadow or in lines or cracks, or rather directly inside the substance, will not be affected. Since every solid substance causes shadow and has a more or less uneven surface, the UV radiation can reach only part of the bacteria. That’s why conventional methods of disinfection like heat or chemical substances should be used additionally. For the degermination of solid materials UV radiation is an important addition but not a replacement for these methods.
