UV-C tunnels are used for automatic and contact free disinfection in a safe and effective way, with the ability to be scaled as required. UV-C disinfection in tunnels can be applied to treat all manner of surfaces including those of boxes, bags, sacks, bottles, tubes, rolls, packages.
They have many advantages including:
- Rapid treatment time alongside low power consumption
- Adaptable application
- Low operating temperatures
- Minimal susceptibility to failure
- Easy installation and maintenance
What do UV-C tunnels do
UV-C tunnels provide a chemical free disinfection using UV light. The UV tunnel is on a conveyor belt, and at the applicable speed, the products are transported through the tunnel. Containing several UV-C tubes, the tunnel destroys the reproduction abilities of the micro-organisms that are present on the surface of the product.
The highly effective UV-C tubes ensure 360° disinfection when disinfecting with the UV tunnel. Used on all sides the tubes kill existing bacteria, germs and spores within a very short time resulting in a product that is free of microbial contamination.
Some areas where the UV tunnels can be used are product and packaging disinfection, clean rooms, food product disinfection, boxes and transport basket disinfection, and airport luggage disinfection.
UV-C tunnel uses
A complete area of UV disinfection is achieved with the UV tunnel illuminating the products moving through with UV radiation. Powerful UV lamps are placed on the top, sides and bottom dependent upon the product and production speed.
UV tunnels are commonly used as a disinfection airlock within clean rooms. By doing so, the products, packaging and equipment are introduced into the clean room highly disinfected by UV radiation. Many industrial sectors use this method including the food, pharmaceutical and medical industries.
UV-C tunnels can be adapted to suit requirements as necessary. They extend product shelf life, reduce spoilage and wastage, improve product quality and reduce cross contamination of products. They reduce the need of chemical, heat treatment, additive and preservatives and products retain their weight, freshness and colour for longer.
