Hygiene and sterility are indispensable during the production, processing, filling and packaging of food. Disinfection with ultraviolet light is a cost-effective and eco-friendly alternative to frequently used chemical processes.
Surface disinfection of packaging materials: In filling plants, germs on surfaces are killed by exposing them to short-wave UV-C radiation. The degree of purity which is achieved for the packaging materials corresponds to classification low-germ packaging materials.
For example in filling machines for dairy products and beverages, for tops/covers, cups, covering and packaging foils for beverages, for dairy products and other food in the cold chain.
Heraeus UV lamps thus contribute to prolonging the shelf life of food.
On conveyor belts: For the transport meat, fish, potato products, fruit and vegetables. An economical step towards improved hygiene in food processing.
Surface disinfection of food: For example fruit and vegetable products and hard cheese.
