UV light significantly reduces the number of germs on surfaces, whether during the filling of paste-like or liquid fresh produce, during the packaging of cheese and sausages or on conveyor belts.
Disinfection with ultraviolet light is a cost-effective and, above all, eco-friendly alternative to frequently used chemical processes. Short-wave UVC radiation has an intensive bactericidal effect. Just a few seconds of intensive light on the surface of packaging materials is enough to dispose of microorganisms such as bacteria, yeast and fungi. The germ load on the surface of the packaging materials is partly reduced by up to 99.9% which substantially prolongs the shelf life of food like yoghurt, curd or milk.
- Packaging material surfaces in filling equipment such as cups, lids, sealing foils or sealing labels
- Especially suitable for filling organic fresh produce
- Conveyor belts for transporting meat, fish, potato products, fruit or vegetables
