Preferred UVC Treatment Solutions
Instead of using UVC handheld units, attempting to treat the surface of cannabis plants with UVC, or waiting until after Powdery Mildew or Bud Mold is already present, American Ultraviolet offers several other more successful solutions designed to stop the problem before it starts. Along with the environment basics of controlling temperature, humidity, and airflow, adding UVC, properly, will absolutely help tip the scales in your favor in the battle against microbial contamination.
UVC Water Treatment
If you're growing hydroponically, and want to combat microbial contamination in your water supply, rest assured that UVC water treatment solutions have been used effectively for this purpose for more than a century. And, if you're already filtering your water supply, the UVC chamber can be installed directly after the filtration. The cleaner and clearer the water going into the UVC vessel, the greater the decontamination results of the UVC on the water supply. UVC Water Treatment units are sized based on the maximum flow rate of water in your operation and the target microorganisms. Always consult with your equipment manufacturer to ensure proper sizing. American Ultraviolet offers UVC water treatment systems for flow rates from ½ a gallon per minute up to 11,000 gallons per minute.

Prolonged, direct exposure to UVC light can cause temporary skin redness and eye irritation, but does not cause skin cancer or cataracts. American Ultraviolet systems are designed with safety in mind and, when properly installed by a professional contractor, do not allow exposure to UV irradiation and allow for safe operation and maintenance.
