Following COVID-19 (aka Coronavirus), UV Sterilization is a subject that we had to discuss with you. After several discussions with our IT team, we made sure that this process was easy to understand!
UV Sterilization is not easy to explain but we have done our best to make it a little easier for you to digest! Let’s go:
“UV Sterilization: What Is It? “
The scientific term is “Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation”. UV Sterilization is a method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (ultraviolet C or UVC) to kill and de-activate harmful microorganisms.
Still here? Perfect, lets continue
“And What Does It Do?”
Much like the game “Fruit Ninja“, UV sterilization plays the role of your finger where the ultraviolet waves cut the bacteria and viruses in half. Its short wavelengths will break down the DNA of microbes so that they can no longer replicate and therefore be harmless!
(Yes, it’s crazy!)
“How Long Does All This Take?”
In the case of our LIZ smart bottle, 5 minutes! Sing and dance to Drake’s “Toosie Slide ” and it is already over (yes, Drizzy is our musical reference just like when we used “Hotline Bling ” in our article on hygienic gestures)
Sterilizing does not mean purifying; you would need a filter for that. Muddy water will not turn into clean, drinkable water with just sterilization (duh)!
