UVGI can protect a hospital's most vulnerable patients. Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) or UV-C has been shown to inactivate viruses, bacteria, and fungi. Studies have shown that air-cleaning technologies using ultraviolet C (UV-C) disinfection, also termed Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation or UVGI, produce beneficial health effects.1 Airborne contamination comes from a variety of sources and circulates through the HVAC system. ASHRAE has recognized this and has given guidance on usage of ultraviolet C (UV-C) for disinfection.
Coil inefficiency due to biofilm. Due to the hospitable environment inside air handlers and ducts (darkness and humidity) microorganisms grow rapidly on cooling coils and surrounding surfaces. These microorganisms produce sticky substances and biofilm quickly accumulates in air handlers and coils allowing a thick layer of dust to stick to the coils and related structures resulting in poor temperature transfer between the coil and air leading to greater energy consumption.
NovaUVC™ AI and Analytics takes your system to the next level by tracking multiple environmental variables along with key UV-C irradiation levels and any custom inputs to our cloud based analytics engine to help you deep dive into key variables and how they affect your system. Capturing live active data aids in spotting trends and points of failure.
Want to maximize your system? Let us install Lambertian Reflectance or Spectral Aluminum to maximize UV-C diffusion. Common air handlers require high UV doses to inactivate microorganisms on-the-fly as they pass through the irradiated zone due to limited exposure time.

NovaSpectra Inc. has developed a proprietary system and method for Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) to address the current shortcomings of conventional systems.
Maybe you already have a UV-C system installed but don't know if it's working. You can now add Dosage Verification to your existing HVAC system to monitor and verify UV-C dosage. We can even come out to test your system and provide you with detailed test results to help you make and meet compliance, maintenance, or upgrade decisions.
