UV-PIPE-BV is composed of:

The UV-PIPE-BV consists of a UV-C light emitter bulb protected by a pure quartz glass and a food PVC cylinder feeder. The whole is watertight (IP68).
Quartz also performs the very important function of protecting the UV-C pipe from low temperatures while increasing yield in the meanwhile.
In UV-PIPE-BV series, various UV-C powers and lengths are available, to meet the different use requirements.
For additional security, it is possible to set a position switch, which turns off the lamp when opening the premise, where the device is to be installed.
The UV-PIPE-BV is ready to use and does not require any special maintenance, except for the periodical replacement of the lamps. The UV-PIPE-BV is entirely manufactured in Italy, with high quality and extremely resistant materials.

UV-PIPE-BV

The UV-PIPE-BV is a specific ultraviolet ray system to be placed within the sales desks in order to purify the cool air circulating channel, which is then input in the display compartment.
Protection from food contamination of the food exposed on the sale counters from germs is one of the major issues for food outlets. A large percentage of products are withdrawn from the display counters for premature loss of freshness, or worse, for decay. The cause of this can be ascribed to microbes, such as bacteria, fungi, mold and spores, which propagate through the air and circulating within the sales desks, cause cross contamination between foods.
Germs come mainly from the surrounding environment but also from the same food. Examples include Mucor, which makes food, such as meat and cold cuts, become black, Aspergillus and Saccharomyces typical of baking products, penicillium, which form the common green/black mold, and, finally, some bacteria, such as Pseudomonas, all highly resistant to cold, and, so particularly difficult to remove.
The proximity of different products on the same counter (i.e. meats, cold meats, salads, cheese, delicatessen products, seafood, pastries, etc.) will cause cross-contamination.
UV-PIPE-BV works with direct radiation. In 2 - 3 seconds, it is possible to achieve the abatement of 99% of bacteria (Bacillus, Coli, ClostrIdium, Legionella, Vibrio, Salmonella, Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, etc.)
The installation is very simple, just insert the UV-PIPE-BV within the ventilation channel of the sales counter and plug it into the mains using the power cable coming out from the handle.

F.A.Q.

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.
