UVC Light Disinfection Systems In The Food Industry

UV Disinfection in the Food Industry

The coronavirus has caused many issues for businesses all across the globe. Companies in the food processing industry not only have to worry about the safety of their employees, but the safety of the food being processed.  If food is contaminated by bacteria it can cause people to become very ill and put them in the hospital. That could put your company in a lot of trouble. So what can you do to help disinfect your facility safely? The answer is UVC light disinfection!

UVC Lighting is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet light to kill or inactivate bacteria by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions.

UVC refers to ultraviolet light with wavelengths between 200 – 280 nanometers (nm). Light in the UVC wavelength can be used for disinfecting and destroying harmful bacteria in food products. Two of the best UVC light systems to use in the food industry are the SterilWand and the Mobile Remote UVC Disinfection System.

 

1. UVC Light Disinfection Wand

The UVC Wand packages UVC technology in a versatile, hand-held device designed to deactivate surface mold, bacteria, viruses and yeast. This wand is ideal for food processing plants.

Approved by the USDA and FDA for surface decontamination, UVC has long been known for its ability to control naturally occurring microbes. SterilWand is suitable for food preparation, processing and packaging areas to reduce pathogens such Coliform, Salmonella, E. coli, Staphylococcus, Listeria

UVC SterilWand Benefits:

  • Highest performance: Delivers the highest output germicidal UV
  • Scientifically proven results: Uses the proven power of germicidal UV energy as an effective inactivation method for pathogens
  • Safe and ozone-free: Uses no chemicals; produces no ozone or other toxic contaminants
  • Easy to Use: Flexibility to quickly bring the power of UVC where and when you need it
  • Manages Risk: Improved environmental hygiene means improved clinical outcomes, reduced cross-contamination and enhanced food safety

 

2. Mobile Remote UVC Disinfection System

The powerful, Mobile Remote UVC Disinfection System is multi-patented and scientifically proven. This is another system that is ideal for food processing environments by providing mold and bacteria control.

Mobile Remote UVC Disinfection System Benefits:

  • Highest performance: Delivers the highest output germicidal UV
  • Scientifically proven results: Uses the proven power of germicidal UV energy as an effective inactivation method for pathogens
  • Safe and ozone-free: Uses no chemicals; produces no ozone or other toxic contaminants
  • Portable: Flexibility to quickly bring the power of UVC where and when you need it
  • App-Enabled: Download the smart-phone enabled application to control the UVC disinfection system
  • Manages risk: Improved environmental hygiene means improved clinical outcomes, reduced cross-contamination and enhanced food safety
  • Saves time and money: Reduces manual terminal cleaning time and costs

 

3. Ceiling/Wall Mountable Germicidal UVC System

The Ceiling/Wall Mountable Germicidal UVC System is designed to provide rapid and effective on-site biological decontamination and sterilization utilizing high powered UVC energy. It can be installed in either a ceiling or a wall. The UVC Panel attacks pathogens, such as bacteria, viruses, and mold, on surfaces and in the air. Its UVC Emitters provide the best and longest-lasting UVC performance available. Hanging UVC light is a customizable solution which includes, hanging refrigeration units and UVC application equipment.

Hanging refrigeration units are designed to be installed for multiple sized units and have custom coverings to help protect workers below. They are moister resistant and help restore efficiency in the unit, which will save the company energy and money. The UVC application equipment includes tools such as, shakers and conveyors, light tunnels, spinning drums, as well as custom machines made to order.

Ceiling/Wall Mountable Germicidal UVC Systems Benefits:

  • Kills mold, bacteria, and viruses where they lurk
  • Mounts flush with ceiling or into a wall
  • Delivers 99.9+% surface microbial “kill” rates
  • Available in a sleeved Emitter configuration for shatter-resistant and moisture-resistant protection
