Bacteria and viruses are quickly deactivated with UVC light. Moulds and yeasts can require a higher intensity. A.o. Salmonella, Listeria, EHEC and Campylobacter can be deactivated with UVC.
Comprehensive tests prove that germ levels stay on an acceptable level during processing with a UVC belt disinfection unit. This prevents cross contamination and reduces cleaning costs. Belt surface bacteria levels can be reduced with log 5.
UVC conveyor belt units are easy to install above or under an existing belt system. The units are very robust and suitable for cleaning with warm water and even high pressure cleaners (IP69K). The longlifetime lamps ensure low operational costs (12.000 hours)
Ultraviolet is electromagnetic radiation, just outside that part of the light spectrum that is visible to the human eye.
The short-waved and energetic UVC radiation is absorbed by certain parts of the DNA which causes a photochemical change. This change affects the DNA and ensures that the microorganisms can not reproduce and die. UVC works an all microorganisms.
