Food Industry

The Food Industry faces many challenges in these uncertain times, these include:

  • The demands for increased freshness and longer shelf life of produce
  • Reduction in microbiological contamination, these include health threats from Salmonella, E coli, Campylobacter, Listeria etc...
  • Improved product quality and reduced customer complaints
  • Improved production and logistical efficiencies
  • HACCP compliance
  • Reduced wastage
  • Carbon reduction programmes


As leaders in the field of product, air, surface and liquid disinfection, UVT manufacture and promote a range of products that address such challenges in food production, storage and transportation.

UVT's UV-C disinfection systems can reduce the proportion of micro-organisms by up to 99.99%.

This can form a decisive, competitive advantage for many food producers, processors and retailers. UVT's products and expertise in this area can be one of the keys to that competitive advantage.

Healthcare

Fact

  • Ten per cent of all UK ‘acute’ admissions get a healthcare acquired infection (HCAI’s)
  • 15,000 (three per cent) of all UK deaths have a contribution from nosocomial infection
  • This costs the NHS over £ 1 billion per annum

Hygiene and Infection Control is of paramount importance in Healthcare facilities. The elimination of infection risk, whether to patients or health care professionals, is regarded as a priority. Patients in areas such as Intensive Care Units, Isolation Wards, Burns Units, Neutropenics and Chemotherapy are particularly at risk from cross infection.

It is now well known that infectious diseases such as Tuberculosis, MRSA, C. Difficile and Norovirus can be spread by airborne transmission in addition to physical transportation (e.g. on hands, clothing & surgical instruments). Given these facts, it is not surprising that health care authorities around the world are continuously seeking new ways of controlling the problem.

hospital wardGiven the apparent limitations of conventional methods of hospital infection control to stem the rise in nosocomial infections, there is a pressing need to develop alternative approaches of control.  The problem is compounded by the fact that many of the micro-organisms responsible, such as MRSA, are multiple antibiotic resistant.  Moreover, outbreaks of multiple drug resistant TB have occurred in the UK in recent years.

UV-C is highly effective against many pathogenic micro-organisms and has the potential for reducing the spread of airborne infections in healthcare facilities.

UV-C disinfection is a proven technology that has been employed by healthcare facilities for more than 75 years.


UVT’s Healthcare solutions include:

  • Whole Room disinfection solutions. These ensure surfaces in areas such as Theatres, Isolation rooms & Ambulances are free from contamination
  • A complete range of air disinfection solutions, these can be designed and installed within your existing ventilation / air conditioning systems. Alternatively they can be ‘stand alone’ solutions which can be simply wall mounted or portable
  • Hand inspection and instrument disinfection

 

Benefits:

  • A strategic weapon in the fight against the proliferation of HCAIs in the NHS
  • Improved air handling equipment efficiency, resulting in reduced energy and maintenance costs
  • Reduction in staff absenteeism
  • Significant reductions in odours
  • Keeps Air Handling unit drain pans Legionella free, thus reducing the threat of widespread infection
  • Negates many manual cleaning programs

Facilities Management

nurseswatchHealthy Buildings = Healthy Staff & Healthy ‘Bottom Line’

According to the World Health Organization, health problems caused by mould and other airborne contaminants are a major cause of reduced productivity and absenteeism from school and work.

Healthy indoor environments could save billions in health care, lost work days, productivity, and possible litigation.

Infection management and control is not solely the concern of health-care. It is core to the daily operational, legislative and cleanliness requirements that span the whole range of commercial, industrial and municipal facilities.

Even with regular cleaning of air handling systems, which is expensive and inconvenient, indoor air quality (IAQ) quickly reverts to a contaminated state.

UVT offer a diverse range of solutions for all types of facilities, including:

Institutions – schools, libraries, museums, prisons, recreation centres & healthcare facilities
Commercial – offices, factories, hotels, departure terminals, cruise ships                 
Industrial– factories, laboratories, pharmaceutical plants
                                     
UVT’s UV-C disinfection technology offers numerous solutions, including:

  • Integration into planned air conditioning systems or alternatively ‘retro’ fitted into existing systems
  • Stand alone solutions which can be simply wall mounted or portable
  • Whole room disinfection ensures areas such as prison cells, 'forensic investigation’ suites, etc. are free from contamination

UVT’s solutions can also help to create a sustainable building and support LEED and BREEAM initiatives.

Benefits include:

  • Improved IAQ
  • Increased productivity, reduced absenteeism & enhanced employee welfare
  • Prevents sick building syndrome thus eradicating costly ‘viral’ outbreaks / deaths
  • Saves up to 20% in energy costs
  • Enhances operational efficiency & reduces maintenance costs
  • Enhanced Bio security
  • Reduces the requirement for costly and potentially hazardous cleaning chemicals
  • Reduced liability

HVAC / Refrigeration

Given the high levels of energy consumed by a buildings HVAC system coupled with today’s ever increasing energy costs, it is more important than ever to control expenses and lessen our carbon footprint.

The coils in heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems (HVAC), do more than simply condition the air in the workplace. They provide an ideal breeding ground for mould, bacteria, viruses and HVAC operational issues.

A cleaner, more efficient HVAC system not only reduces overheads but also conserves natural resources by reducing energy and water consumption.

UVT use the proven power of germicidal UV-C energy as an effective inactivation method for microorganisms, cleaning the coils, drain pans and ductwork, extending the life of your HVAC equipment and providing a healthier environment in which to live.
