Crystal IS Adds High Power UV-C LEDs

News
New robust, compact design targets 15mW to 30mW applications for water, air and surface disinfection

Crystal IS, a US-based manufacturer of ultraviolet C-band (UV-C) LEDs, has announced a new commercial product line targeting higher power applications for disinfection of water, air and surfaces using 280nm to 100nm LED light.

Klaran, Crystal IS's first generation disinfection product line, offers germicidal output powers from 15mW to 30mW. It is said to be uniquely suited for use in healthcare, lab water and consumer product applications where health and human safety is of primary importance.

Use cases demonstrating the need for high powered UV-C LEDs include healthcare, lab water and consumer products.

According to the US Centers for Disease and Control (CDC), Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) impact one in 25 patients in the US each year. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) report improved patient outcomes, shorter stays and fewer repeat visits linked to healthier environments that incorporate UV-C technology in addition to approved standard surface wipe protocols.

Point-of-Use lab water purifiers now make up 75 percent of an approximately 480 million dollar global market. UV-C LEDs can be integrated into these systems for Type I, II and III water purification, as defined by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).

Global headlines highlight the need for safe and reliable drinking water and with that, the UV-C water purifier market is expected to almost double in size over the next five years from 9.16 billion to 17.85 billion dollars in 2020. In addition to the US, this growth is attributed to China and India where industrialization and a rising urban population is putting a strain on drinking water resources.

Crystal IS says Klaran extends its value to manufacturers who need optimised, high output germicidal power for maximum disinfection rates; smaller footprints; rugged design for mobile use; and a non-hazardous, mercury-free solution with no fragile quartz tubes.

"For Crystal IS, developing a reliable disinfection product has been one of the company's primary strategic goals," said Larry Felton, CEO of Crystal IS. "Building on the successes of our commercialised Optan product line, we are pleased to now offer our high performing Klaran UVC LEDs for disinfection." 



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
