    It’s a UV-C light. There are many applications of UV-C, the most often seen in Our trades is for AC coils.It’s a U-tube addition in the plenum box that exposes the inside of the evaporator coil to UV-C light waves. They work great to prevent mold and Legionnaires disease.. But caution, they do cause eye damage to humans if you are exposed without the UV glasses. Primarily Cataracts.

      UV-C in the right wavelength is a great killer. We have a tube installed in our HVAC ducting.

      Sadly, sites like Amazon are now full of all kinds of UV lights that are not in the right wavelength, usually taking “blacklight LED’s” and renaming them “sanitizing lights”.

    I’m sorry, your referring to the liquid sodium Hypocrite type. Supplied in a normally 12.5 percent concentration and then cut depending on use. 10 PPM will kill most any virus or bacterial with just a 30 second exposure. But leaving it on longer is always preferred.

      In my defense, the attachment did not show originally.

      Very interesting, That’s not there original sanitizer. But it does require a lot longer exposure.

    The information is as always appreciated, it however seems a little cost prohibitive. A simple solution of bleach and water (1/3 cup bleach per gallon of water) will work just as well.

    Anyone interested in the complete list of sanitizers can go here. It also tells the exposure times needed for what virus.

    FDA sent this to me several weeks ago so it took a bit of time to find.

    On a side of this, I was a assistant Captain in a volunteer Ambulance Corp during the Aid’s scare. We had to scramble to find a suitable sanitizer/disinfectant for our equipment like Back boards, Mash pants, and vacuum splints. We wound up with this same one from Spray nine right up the road from me. It’s amazing how many of the same product is marketed under other names for the same reason.
