What is a uv(c) filter?

UV air purifiers are designed to use short-wave ultraviolet light (UV-C light) to inactivate airborne pathogens and microorganisms, such as mold, bacteria, and viruses. When a UV-C germicidal lamp is incorporated into an air purifier, it can add an additional layer of protection against viruses, bacteria and mold spores in the air. As air passes through the purifier's internal irradiation chamber, it is exposed to UV-C light. This allows the purifier to reduce these biological contaminants.

While many of these contaminants will be captured in HEPA filters anyway, the UV-C lamp can offer greater peace of mind. UV air purifiers are devices that use UV light technology to capture air and pass it through a filter. The air passes through a small internal chamber where it is exposed to UV-C light. Some air purifiers then filter the air again before returning it to the room.
