We have installed a customized UVC disinfection system in the spiral cooling tower for pizza dough for a long time customer. The stainless steel conveyor passes vertically along a number of UVC lamps in an aluminium housing.
An evaporator is a cold and humid environment, so in some situations it can be contaminated with micro-organisms. Cold-loving bacteria such as Listeria survive well in this cold and moist environment.
Between 2017 and 2019, it was established that wastewater treatment plants can spread Legionella via aerosols in the (outdoor) air.
UVC disinfection is a good solution for disinfection of pre-formed cups right before filling in the dairy industry.
Hygiene is of great importance when propagating plant material in vitro. For example, for the air, but the pre-formed cultivation trays or pots must also be as clean as possible.
In situations where raw materials or tools have to enter a high-care environment, a disinfection step is desired and sometimes required.
