UV Sterilization
    #3996744 - 03/31/05 07:49 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I was in Physics class a few days ago talking about the nature of light when my teacher mentioned that the white metal case bolted to the wall was in fact used for sterilizing and did so by UV radiation.

The first thought that came into my mind was "I wonder if this will work on our projects here at the shroomery." I asked him more about it and it turns out its almost instant to sterilize. Anyways, I didn't want to hint towards mushroom growing or anything like that by asking him so I decided to see what you guys know about this way of sterilizing.

Would it damage/kill nutrients in mixture?
Would the UV rays get deep enough to sterilize middle?
and anything else you would like to add.

Anyways I very much doubt that I will be bringing any jars to school(It is my senior year though..hmm), but I'm curious just for the sake of knowing if its possible and a different alternative.

UV Sterilization

Works on air & thin films of water. Doesn't penatrate deep enough to work on much else.

Is also very dangerious to you, if your eyes & skin get exposed (causes skin cancer).

I posted on this awhile back.. UV-C could be used for water, the penetration isn't really that bad with water/clear things, but solids, it's a waste.. Water, tools, etc.. If made into a box could be handy, but it is very dangerous if exposed. Will cause Mutant Mushies.. So for some it could be useful, mostly just another toy.

Thanks for the clarification on uv lights, I was under the impression they would be nice for sterilizing a surface area but then again some alcohol would do just fine.

It would work very well for surface areas, just does not penetrate solds, I was looking at it as a sub for all the chemicals I am having to wipe, and spray around.. I don't like to use a lot of chemicals on most anything, so it's an option..
