This paper discusses different types of UV germicidal irradiators (UVIs), including (probably, for the first time) dual-function germicidal recirculators (producing germicidal irradiation together with erythema irradiation or illumination) and their characteristics. Methodological indications illustrated with examples, as well as some necessary information for public health officers in charge of epidemiological surveillance, are useful for relevant engineering calculations.
