High-tech food and pharmaceutical industry
The possibilities of dry disinfection with UVC
UVC can be a valuable tool in sectors with extremely high demands on production processes, like the pharmaceutical industry and production for milk powders or specialist food. It disinfects up to log5 and the process can be validated.
Examples of applications are walkway disinfection in gowning rooms or corridors, disinfecting powder bags in a lock or tunnel, and disinfecting cans or lids on a conveyor belt.
Incoming materials may bring in microbial contaminants from outside and need to be disinfected before entering the production facility.
Entry disinfection can be done with a UVC disinfection tunnel or lock between low and high-care zones, for instance.
Whether you choose a tunnel with automatic transport or a lock depends on the volume and type of material. The process is automated and can be validated at set times, so disinfection is always reliable.
The advantages of an automated process with UVC:
Sustainable process with no chemicals
Bacteria do not build up resistance
Suitable for a wide range of materials
