UV-C radiation is the shortest-wave emission in the ultraviolet radiation range and a component of natural sunlight. However, the human eye cannot perceive this wavelength range UV-C radiation is therefore invisible to humans.
UV-C radiation does not occur naturally on Earth because this wavelength is completely absorbed by the Earth's atmosphere. As a result, living organisms - from the smallest microorganisms to humans - have not been able to develop any natural resistance to this type of radiation in the course of evolution. UV-C radiation attacks the RNA of a virus so that it is irreversibly damaged. The virus can no longer reproduce or settle on mucous membranes and is thus harmless.
Practically everywhere indoors, wherever people come together and there is a risk of infection transmission through aerosols. For example, medical facilities, educational institutions, public facilities and authorities, clinics, etc. can benefit from RZB CARE solutions.
Essentially, there are three parameters to consider in order to achieve the optimum disinfection performance for a room:
- the frequency of people
- the air volume of the room
- the power of the unit.
You should generally pay attention to the following criteria:
- Total air flow capacity in m³/h
- Connected load in W
- Noise emission in dB(A)
- Closedness of the system
- Durability or guarantee
- Maintenance effort
- Quality of the radiation source
In general, we recommend placing the unit close to potential crowds of people. The construction of the RZBCARE units is designed to work as quietly as possible so that only minimal disturbing noises occur. We are happy to offer you online consultation or even the planning of entire rooms. Please feel free to contact us: info(at)rzb-care(dot)de
UV-C radiation is extremely aggressive, especially in direct contact and in the close vicinity of the radiation source. Therefore, solutions must be designed so that people and animals can never come into direct contact with this radiation. With inferior radiation sources, there is also a risk of ozone formation, which is particularly problematic for people with respiratory diseases.
The information provided by the quick calculator offers a trustworthy guide for equipping your rooms with air disinfection devices. For the calculation, the quick calculator uses values recommended by public authorities such as the World Health Organisation (WHO). The quick calculator is programmed to the best of our knowledge and belief - however, there are no guarantees based on this information.
Please note that in certain areas or for certain funding programmes, different values may apply (especially schools). This has a considerable influence on the number of devices required.
Air that may be contaminated with viruses is led past powerful UV-C radiation sources by means of fans. For the RZB CARE products, the exact speed at which the fans must operate in order to achieve an effective disinfection performance has been determined in cooperation with external test institutes and laboratories.
Radiation can be generated by both conventional and LED sources. We are using conventional radiation sources for the time being, as they are significantly more efficient than LEDs.
Most of RZB CARE products are manufactured at our company headquarters in Bamberg, Germany. This enables us to guarantee the highest quality and reliability and ensure smooth customer service.
The warranty for all RZB CARE devices covers 2 years.
The units were tested both in our in-house laboratories and at the VDE. The focus was on technical safety, but of course also on the effectiveness of the units.
In the case of products that disinfect the air exclusively with UV-C radiation, the UV-C lamp must be replaced approx. every 9,000 hours. Some products use HEPA filters in addition to the UV-C radiation source. Such filters must be replaced approximately every 5,000 hours. Our product development department is currently working on solutions for the automated display of necessary lamp and filter changes.
Yes, please feel free to contact us if you need a new UV-C lamp for your air sterilizer.
UV-C lamps are fluorescent tubes and are therefore classified as hazardous waste. Small quantities can be handed in at local collection points or recycling centers.
RZB CARE does not offer a direct "assembly and installation service". However, most of the units are designed in such a way that assembly and commissioning do not require the help of a specialist. According to the "plug-and-play" principle, after unpacking the product, usually only the plug has to be plugged into the socket and the device is ready for operation.
All members of the MINAK family have been developed and brought to a marketable level in amazingly short cycles. But we are full of ideas and are always trying to optimise and expand our products.
For this reason, there may be constant technical and sometimes even minor visual changes to the products. However, this is always in the spirit of development progress.
The webshop starts with shipping exclusively within Germany. We are working at full speed to expand the shipping zones.
If you would like to take advantage of delivery to another country today, please contact us. The RZB CARE team is looking forward to your enquiry.
RZB CARE keeps sufficient quantities of the individual product components in stock. RZB CARE therefore actively counteracts delivery delays due to missing components, so that the delivery times can be depicted within a normal time frame and are only dependent on the size of the order.
Under normal conditions, your goods will be dispatched within 3 to a maximum of 7 working days.
As a business customer, you can purchase the RZB CARE devices from your responsible wholesaler.
