AIR Disinfection: UVC System for Cold Rooms
UV-REFLEX is a high output UV-C ultraviolet germicidal device specifically designed for cold rooms and food processing areas.
The UV-REFLEX performs a progressive action of decontamination from airborne bacteria and mould present in the air of the cold rooms, improving the conditions of preservation of products. It works by treating the air with a constant high dosage of UVC light of 253.7 nanometres wavelength. As only the air is treated, it does not alter the organoleptic features of food and its quality, but rather, it prevents product loss due to the proliferation of bacteria and fungi and enhances the freshness, taste and appearance of food, without dehydration and weight loss.
Germicidal Ultraviolet irradiation has a proven, strong germicidal effect against micro-organisms (moulds, bacteria and viruses). The device does not affect the normal aging of the product, as it works to minimize the growth of unwanted microorganisms, i.e. those found in the air. UV-REFLEX achieves the elimination (99%) of bacteria such as Bacillus, Coli, Clostridium, Legionella, Vibrio, Salmonella, Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus, etc. in just a few minutes of operation. The concept and the effectiveness of it has been well documented by ASHRAE and others.
Traditional cleaning/filtration methods
Traditional cleaning methods and facility air filtration alone are often not sufficient to ensure high levels of hygiene. UVC technology is a simple and cost-effective solution that can enhance facility hygiene, comfort and workplace sanitation regimes. The best part is there are no chemicals involved, providing a healthier environment for all.
Operation of UV-REFLEX
UV-REFLEX can be safely operated 24/7 without contraindications. The treatment takes place by exploiting the constant forced air circulation, (due to the flow generated by the fan of the ventilation system), which pass next to the device and is decontaminated from microbes, before they enter into contact with the products inside the cold rooms.
Owing to the use of the UV-C technology, it is possible to increase the shelf life of food preserved in cold rooms, without developing resistant microorganisms and without the use of chemicals, risky to employ and hard to biodegrade.
The use of UVC light in the 253.7 nanometres wavelength means there is no ozone produced. This is particularly important as ozone is hazardous to humans.
UV-REFLEX is a versatile Air Germicidal Device that is cost effective, simple to install and operate. Applications include:
- Smallgoods factory
- Food processing centres
- Cool rooms
PHYSICAL ACTION AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
Treatment by UV-C rays is purely physical without the use of any chemicals. Results are consistent as microorganisms do not develop resistant to UV light. No residual effects, therefore, no long-term contamination.
Directional black honeycomb filter channels the flow of UV-C rays.
BEST QUALITY AIR
Designed to operate 24/7, without any contraindications for people. Works at temperatures down to -20°C.
PRACTICABILITY AND SAVINGS
The treatment is immediate and ready for use. The maintenance is minimal with low costs of both energy consumption and maintenance.
STOP CROSS CONTAMINATION
The contamination in one area may spread to another through air conditioning systems. UV-C devices can assist to prevent the spread of Airborne infection throughout facilities.
