The Violeds is a differentiated UV technology that provides robust disinfection, as well as sterilization of any indoor airborne contaminants drawn into the air conditioner, including various harmful viruses and bacteria, ensuring that fresh air is continuously discharged. It is a healthy technology proven to disinfect viruses and bacterial using UV light only with no chemicals, and an optimal solution for all air conditioner brands in the market. Users can be also used without product replacement until the air conditioner life with lifetime of Violeds UV LED up to 50,000 hours.
Seoul Viosys developed Violeds technology in 2005 that can be applied to various applications by optimally designing distance to objects, light irradiation time, intensity, angle and area of irradiation surface using UV wavelengths. Violeds technology has successful testing results of 99.9% sterilization of the new coronavirus in 30 seconds by the research group of Korea University, and according to the results of testing by Guangzhou Institute of Microbiology in China (CGMT), air conditioners with Violeds adopted by its Chinese customer have been proven to sterilize 90% of various harmful viruses in the air in 2 hours.
"Aerosol transmission is a concern when using air conditioning and heating systems at restaurants, cafes, and sports facilities where masks must be removed. We believe that our new Violeds technology solution for disinfection helps to eliminate viruses in the air and people enjoy their well-being life without COVID-19 pandemic concerns," said Chae Hon Kim, executive vice president of Seoul Viosys.
Inquiries and applications for Violeds A/C disinfection solutions are available on its website www.seoulviosys.com/en/.
