Bioclimatic has recently launched an innovative kit on the market, specifically designed for disinfecting harvest carts using UVC light. This development represents a significant step forward in the fight against several viruses.
Examples are the Tomato Brown Rugose Fruit Virus (ToBRFV) and the cucumber mosaic virus, which can easily spread in greenhouses. The spread of these viruses poses a considerable risk to the horticultural sector, both nationally and internationally.
The application of UVC light for disinfection is gaining popularity in horticulture, thanks to several advantages:
- The process is dry, preventing damage to harvest carts.
- UVC light works quickly.
- No use of chemicals, contributing to an environmentally friendly workplace.
- Fully automated, saving labor.
The UVC tunnel from Bioclimatic is characterized by a modular structure, making it easy to be installed by a technician on site. The design consists of a robust stainless steel frame and aluminium cladding.
For added safety, the tunnel is equipped with two emergency stops and strip curtains. The central control system not only offers malfunction notifications but also notifications for preventive maintenance.
The standard size of the tunnel is 5.5 meters long, 2.1 meters high, and 1.1 meters wide. Depending on the end user's needs, the tunnel can be adapted for a higher throughput speed.
