Prevents contamination through conveyor contact
UVC light works well against known pathogens such as Salmonella, Listeria, EHEC and Campylobacter.
Leading food manufacturers have integrated UVC lights in their conveying systems and test show that microorganism levels remain low during the day up to 5Log. It improves product quality and can reduce the number of cleaning stops.
Designed to be easily installed under a belt UVpro units are robust (IP69K) and lamp lifetime is up to 12.000 hours. With UVC light no chemicals are used and there is no direct product contact.
- Less production stops
- Reduces risk of cross contamination
- Helps to reduce chemicals
- Maximum hygiene on the belt during production
How does UVC light work?
You can use a UVC bulb to illuminate an evaporator or drip catcher and bacteria or fungi can no longer multiply, because UVC (part of the light spectrum) can damage DNA and deactivate the organisms.
The amount of energy released determines the extent to which microorganisms are deactivated.
