Following COVID-19 (aka Coronavirus), UV Sterilization is a subject that we had to discuss with you.
UV Sterilization is not easy to explain but we have done our best to make it a little easier for you to digest! Let's go:
"UV Sterilization: What Is It? "
The scientific term is "Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation”. UV Sterilization is a method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (ultraviolet C or UVC) to kill and de-activate harmful microorganisms.
Still here? Perfect, lets continue
"And What Does It Do?"
Much like the game "Fruit Ninja", UV sterilization plays the role of your finger where the ultraviolet waves cut the bacteria and viruses in half. Its short wavelengths will break down the DNA of microbes so that they can no longer replicate and therefore be harmless!
(Yes, it's crazy!)
"How Long Does All This Take?"
Sterilizing does not mean purifying; you would need a filter for that. Muddy water will not turn into clean, drinkable water with just sterilization (duh)!
