About UV Light
Ultraviolet light falls in the range of the EM spectrum between the visible light and X-rays. It is a type of electromagnetic radiation that makes black-light posters glow, and may cause summer tans and sunburns. Moreover, UV radiation has enough energy to break chemical bonds and the DNA or RNA of some creatures.
According to Wikipedia, ultraviolet (UV) is a form of electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength from 10 (with a corresponding frequency around 30 PHz) to 400 nm (750 THz), shorter than that of visible light, but longer than X-rays. UV radiation is present in sunlight and constitutes about 10% of the total electromagnetic radiation output from the Sun. UV photons can cause ionization which is a process in which electrons break away from atoms. The resulting vacancy affects the chemical properties of the atoms and causes them to form or break chemical bonds that they otherwise would not. This feature is of great help for chemical processing, and even it can be damaging to living tissues and creatures. It has been proved that UV light can kill pathogenic organisms, including that causing cholera, hepatitis, and other bacterial and parasitic diseases.
Advantages of UV Light
Unlike other types of sterilization, UV light sterilization provides a chemical-free and easy way for people to sterilize items. It is environmental-friendly because it causes no pollution to the water and our living environment. In addition, it requires no special storage or transportation, which is convenient for people to use. More importantly, UV is highly effective in killing and inactivating many different types of microorganisms including chlorine-resistant pathogens like Cryptosporidium and Giardia.
Applications of UV Light
Hospitals and laboratories often use ultraviolet light to kill bacteria, germs, and microbes. Relying on the advantages mentioned above, UV light is applied to many different derivative products for UV sterilization. As its features are recognized by more people, UV products are used in more places such as schools, crowded airplanes, food processing factories, and hotels. So far, products featuring UV sterilization include UV sterilization wands, UV sterilization boxes, and UV sterilization machines.
Having gone through difficulties and obstacles, Scenta has successfully worked out the latest UV light-related products includingwireless charging sterilizing aromatherapy case and UV sterilizing stick with phone charging function. Our engineers utilize the most advanced technology to integrate the UV sterilization function and other practical functions into one product.
The wireless charging sterilizing aromatherapy case is made up of two parts. The upper part is a black charging board which can be used for charging phones separately. Put your phone on the blackboard, wireless charging begins automatically. The other part is for UV sterilization. Several UV lamps are installed inside the machine to sterilize the items. Moreover, there is one spot especially designed for adding essential oils. Different fragrances can be spread through this machine based on your taste. Having conducted multiple tests, we ensure the product can be fast charging through the power of 15W. It means that this machine can help sterilize and aromatize items including watches, jewelry, and earphones while wireless charging your phone.
Let's discuss the other product - UV sterilizing stick with phone charging function. Just as its name implies, this product has two advantages: UV sterilization and phone charging. The machine is designed to be hand-held and can be carried around very easily. The UV lamps are evenly arranged to ensure a wide coverage area of sterilization. By pressing the button, you can start the sterilization as the purple indicator lights are on. You are free to use the stick to sterilize any items such as phones, bedsheets, keyboards, cups, watches, and jewelry. In addition, the machine can be used as a power bank with a built-in 2000mAh Li-battery. With it, you can charge your phone at any time.
Though the UV light is useful in our daily sterilization and disinfection, we must know that the UV light shouldn't be irradiated to human, pets, and any living creatures. Recent research shows that UV rays that damage skin can also alter a gene that suppresses tumors, raising the risk of sun-damaged skin cells developing into skin cancer.
