UV-BOX-E2/40H-NX-T is composed of:

UV-BOX-E2/40H-NX-T is a table-top container made in AISI 304 stainless steel and is equipped with a flat stainless steel grid on which you can place objects to be disinfected. The grid supports the stored objects reducing the shaded areas as much as possible to obtain up to 99.9999% disinfection in a very short exposure time (seconds). 
UV-BOX-E2/40H-NX-T is equipped with two 40 W U.V. lamps, High Output. To activate the disinfection procedure you just need to close the lid, set the digital timer and push “start”.
If the door is opened  accidentaly during disinfection, the lamps will immediately switch off in order to guarantee the operator’s safety, while when the door is closed they will automatically switch on again until the end of the time set in the timer.  
On  lid  backlit when the unit is in operation, allowing a better visual control of the state of functionality by the operator. 
UV-BOX-E2/40H-NX-T is ready for use and does not require any special maintenance except for the periodical replacement of the lamps, it is entirely built in Italy, with high quality and extremely resistant materials.


U UV-BOX-E2/40H-NX-T preserves the hygiene of tools, containers and of any type of equipment in the food sector.  As a matter of fact, commonly used objects in food processing have the need to be disinfected to mantain high hygiene and quality standards, typical of this sector.  With UV-BOX-E2/40H-NX-T, it is possible to perform the disinfection of equipment and tools in a simple, immediate and safe way, without developing heat, without using liquids and without any contraindications.   
The box is equipped with two UV-C lamps, installed in opposite positions, one on the top and one on the bottom, in order to radiate all surfaces to be disinfected and without any shadows. Moreover, the internal reflection increases the irradiation power, managing to significantly lower the exposure time required to achieve the disinfection level of 99.9%.
The use of the UV-BOX-E2/40H-NX-T is indicated when it is required to preserve the sterility of the tools, even hours after washing, so that they can be used safely during operations.
It is shown that the control and the increase of hygiene level allows a consequent and general increase in quality both in healthcare facilities but also in pharmaceutical sector, in microbiological laboratories, etc.
The disinfection level with UV-BOX-E2/40H-NX-T achieves the elimination (99%) of bacteria such as Bacillus, Coli, Clostridium, Legionella, Vibrio, Salmonella, Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus, etc. in just a few minutes of operation.  
High disinfection levels of UV-BOX-E2/40H-NX-T can be otherwise achieved, but only with chemicals, hazardous to health and harmful to the environment, as well as costly.




Ultraviolet rays are electromagnetic waves which are part of light. Electromagnetic waves are divided into three main wavelength bands, expressed in nanometers, nm: Ultraviolet rays (UV) 100-400 nm Visible rays (light) 400-700 nm Infrared rays (IR) 700-800,000 nm UV rays are in turn identified in three bands:

  • UV-A (315-400 nm) with tanning properties;
  • UV-B (280-315 nm) con proprietà terapeutiche e di sintesi della vitamina "D";
  • UV-C (100-280 nm) with germicidal properties.

UV-C rays (100-280 nm) have a strong germicidal effect and reach their maximum efficacy at the 265 nm wavelength. The germicidal effect of UV-C radiation covers bacteria, viruses, spores, fungi, moulds and mites; this is mainly due to the destructive effect of the UV-C rays on their DNA, which damage their reproductive system and prevent them from replicating.

Bacteria, Viruses, Spores, Fungi, Mould, and Mites are all sensitive to, and can therefore be eliminated with, UV-C light. Mircrobes cannot acquire resistance to UV-C light, unlike that which occurs using chemical disinfectants and antibiotics. UV rays are ecological. Polluting the environment is inevitable using normal disinfectants. Directly inhaling the vapours, or swallowing food products contaminated by any contact with said chemical disinfectants, can also give rise to a number of serious risks. In cases where chemical disinfectants cannot be eliminated (food, pharmaceutical, healthcare industries, etc.), using ultraviolet rays for disinfection allows a reduction in their use, with considerable economic savings and greater care for the environment, while maintaining and almost always improving the level of disinfection. UV-C light devices can be installed in environments and on machinery and be programmed to maintain the same level of disinfection day and night, guaranteeing ideal hygiene conditions, without highs and lows. On the contrary, chemical disinfectants are effective only during their actual use. Using LIGHT PROGRESS equipped luminaires, operating costs are negligible; it could be said that “LIGHT PROGRESS” UV-C systems do not require maintenance except for the normal replacement of the lamps. The cost/benefit ratio is considered excellent; the devices are both powerful and long-lasting. Hence the elimination of germs using UV-C technology is low-cost and highly effective compared to (or in combination with) other systems.

UV-C light genuinely works if properly applied and with the necessary precautions. The difference between a quality project, and an application that fails to bring the desired results, lies in the degree of knowledge about the subject, and level of experience acquired over time. Light Progress has been developing successful projects worldwide since 1987, and has built a client portfolio consisting of important companies in all fields requiring certified hygienic conditions to produce quality products and services.
