Crystal IS has announced its new commercial product line targeting higher power applications for UVC disinfection of water, air and surfaces. Klaran, Crystal IS’s first generation disinfection product line, offers germicidal output powers from 15 mW to 30 mW, 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 UVC LEDs include healthcare, lab water and consumer products:
According to the 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 UVC 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. UVC 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 UVC 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’s Klaran extends its value to manufacturers who need:

Optimized, high output germicidal power for maximum disinfection rates
Smaller footprint that affords design flexibility and product innovation
A rugged design for mobile use cases
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 commercialized Optan product line, we are pleased to now offer our high performing Klaran UVC LEDs for disinfection.” In addition, Crystal IS offers expert technical assistance via application engineering support, software modeling or onsite training to assist innovation teams in developing state of the art disinfection solutions.
