Air Disinfection

Air disinfection systems are deployed where there is a risk of contamination by airborne micro-organisms. Air disinfection applications include:

  • Food processing facilities
  • Offices, factories, municipal buildings - Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) issues - "Sick Building Syndrome"
  • Healthcare facilities, prisons, cruise ships etc..
  • Pharmaceutical manufacturing
  • HVAC / Refrigeration systems – coil cleaning


Micro-organisms are subjected to UV-C light which destroys up to 99.99% of them, depending on the dosage.


Benefits include:

  • Extended product shelf life (foods), reduced cross contamination and a reduction in wastage
  • Reduced surface and airborne micro-organisms such as mould, bacteria and viruses
  • Reduce unpleasant, harmful odours associated with mould and bacterial growth
  • Improved general IAQ for better productivity / reduced absenteeism
  • Lower HVAC operational costs

Surface Disinfection

Surface disinfection systems from UV Technology Limited are deployed in the food industry in order to disinfect equipment such as:

  • Conveyor and deboning belts, dough rising surfaces and other food preparation surfaces etc.
  • Machine housings – filling, slicing etc.
  • Cutting blades, knives, workwear
  • Packaging including food trays, foil, films and plastic lids
  • Equipment storage - medical, dental or veterinary instruments, the disinfection of fragile objects etc.


Infection through contact with surfaces is one of the most common causes of the contamination of foodstuffs with bacteria and mould.

The existence of micro-organisms on equipment is usually an unavoidable fact, and when they come into contact with foodstuffs this can often greatly reduce the shelf life of the products. In addition to this, micro-organisms can present a health risk such as E Coli, Salmonella, Campylobacter etc..

Equipment surfaces are treated with high intensity UV-C and depending on the dosage up to 99.99% of micro-organisms can be destroyed.

Liquid Disinfection




The disinfection of liquids utilising UV-C is common place throughout the world.
The deployment of chlorine, chlorine dioxide, hypochlorite and other chemical substances to disinfect liquids can result in effects which are detrimental to health and the environment.

UV-C technology is the better alternative to chlorine disinfection. The intensively researched and technologically mature disinfection method with ultraviolet light is adapted from the natural action of sunlight.

The light necessary for UV disinfection is generated in special UV lamps. A watertight tube made of quartz glass which allows the UV-C light to pass through surrounds each lamp. The liquid to be disinfected runs past the quartz tubing, being treated by the UV-C light. The number of UV-C lamps employed vary according to amount, flow rate and transmittance of the medium.

UV Technology's systems are suited for the disinfection of drinking water, process water, waste water, salt water, ultrapure water and other translucent fluids, e.g. sugar syrup.
Other uses of water disinfection include the treatment of wet equipment parts such as dehumidifiers and rotary spray humidifiers in air conditioning equipment

The rate of disinfection is up to 99.99%, depending on the UV-C dosage.

UVT through its strategic partnership with one of the world's leading 'Liquids' disinfection manufacturers, are ideally positioned to meet all your liquid and water disinfection issues...

All solutions are individually tailored, thus assuring the optimal solution.

Please call us to discuss your specific requirements....



Packaging Decontamination


Contaminated packaging is one of the primary causes of the contamination of foodstuffs with bacteria and mould.

The existence of micro-organisms on packaging can often greatly reduce the shelf life of the products and result in expensive product recalls.

Packaging disinfection solutions are deployed in the food industry in order to disinfect various types of packaging including:

  • Food trays & pails
  • Foils and films
  • Lids, caps and closures
  • Finished product packs


Packaging surfaces are treated with high intensity UV-C and depending on the dosage up to 99.99% of micro-organisms can be destroyed.

UV-C HVAC Coil Disinfection Solutions


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 this expense 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 which can cause HVAC operational issues, potential litigation and in severe cases lead to loss of life.

Microbial build-up on the heat exchange plates and drain pans of the cooling coils results in increased resistance to air flow and a loss in thermal efficiency.

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

UVT’s UV-C Coil cleaning solutions are designed to keep the air conditioning coil clean and free of bio-contaminants, including viruses, fungi, bacteria & bio-film.

Maintaining a coil free of microbial growth will maximize the efficiency of coil heat transfer and reduce the hours of operation of the compressors, resulting in lower energy costs.


Cleaning the coils results in improved:


  • Heat transfer
  • Reduced compressor runtime
  • Reduced compressor maintenance
  • HVAC system life increased
  • Operational efficiency
  • Net cooling capacity

 

UVT’s disinfection systems can be integrated into planned air conditioning systems or alternatively ‘retro’ fitted into existing systems.

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

 

 

Benefits include:


  • Saves up to 20% in energy costs
  • Enhanced operational efficiency & reduces maintenance costs
  • Reduced equirement for costly and potentially hazardous cleaning chemicals
  • Reduced water usage

UVT’s Coil cleaning solutions are designed to individual customer requirements taking into account size of coil, target organisms and environmental parameters, thus ensuring optimal benefits are achieved.
