The Effect of Reynolds Number of Air Flow During the Air Sterilization Process with Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation Lamp

See — This case study examines the effect that the Reynolds number of air flow has on the population of live pathogenic microorganisms during the process of air sterilization using ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) lamp in a closed air-duct. With this aim, the first discussion is the mathematical model which regulates changes to the Reynolds number in terms of the percentage of population for the following live pathogenic microorganisms: Escherichia coli, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Streptococcus pneumoniae, under special condition of flow rate and intensity of UV irradiation. In conclusion, as the velocity and the Reynolds number of the…
