“STERILE-BRIGHT” UV-Ozone COVID-19 Mitigation Technology

Ultraviolet light in the proper wavelengths destroys pathogens like bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Sterile- BrightTM technology uses a unique combination of germicidal wavelengths—especially Vacuum UV—in conjunction with ozone generation to provide a holistic, comprehensive and reliable sanitizing process. Although UV sanitizing has been well-established for more than 100 years, actual practices (protocols) for using UV for large areas and multiple surfaces is relatively new and often misunderstood. For example, some potential users are concerned about possible adverse effects upon people, pets, plants, and materials. These common questions and concerns will be addressed to provide an understanding of how and why Sterile-BrightTM technology works safely and more effectively than other UV products.

What is Vacuum Ultra Violet Light?

There are several names given to wavelengths below the Ultra Violet. However, because of the absorption of the air down to few nanometers, and the need to evacuate any part of the environmental experiment, this spectral range is called Vacuum Ultra Violet (VUV).

Vacuum UV Spectrum

The VUV regions are surrounded by “above” the ultraviolet (UV) spectral region (from 200 nm) and the long wavelength side of the Hard X-Ray region below (around 1 nm).

Three main regions make up the Vacuum Ultra Violet domain:

  • The Far Ultra Violet (FUV): 200-120 nm
  • The Extreme Ultra Violet (EUV): 120-10 nm
  • The Soft X-Rays (Soft X): 15-0.2 nm

These domains have their own physical meanings:

The Far UV ending at around 120 nm, corresponds to the natural barrier of the transmittance of radiation through any window material. The poor reflectivity of optics in soft X-Rays requires the use of large deviation angles up to 170° (extremely low grazing angles).

Vacuum range

Low (rough) vacuum Atmospheric pressure to 1 mbar
Medium vacuum 1 to 10-3 mbar
High vacuum (HV) 10-3 to 10-8 mbar
Ultrahigh vacuum (UHV) 10-8 to 10-12 mbar
Extreme High vacuum (EHV) Less than 10-12 mbar

The use of ozone and/or UV should only be used to disinfect areas under the supervision of professionals and only in areas when no one is around. Inhaling ozone can be dangerous and fatal. Ozone should never be used as treatments for humans to inhale, drink or get injected either by IV or IM protocols. These are not approved medical protocols and can be lethal.
