UV-PIPE-NX is composed of:

UV-PIPE-NX consists of a case in AISI 304 stainless steel, with ultra compact dimensions, with an internal mirror bright  aluminium reflector,containing a UV lamp and a nylon cylinder, which encloses the power supply ballast.
The UV-C lamp is protected by a pure quartz sleeve.  The system reaches the protection class IP65. The quartz also performs the important function of protecting the UV-C pipe from low and high temperatures, creating an air cushion between the lamp and the external environment, thus increasing yield at the same time.
UV-PIPE-NX is a very handy portable device, owing to the cylindrical handle, made of insulating material. The miniatured electronic ballast on-board allows to power directly the system  just plugging it in.
UV-PIPE-NX can be combined with other modules for disinfection in "team" (battery), is available in various lengths and wattages to meet the different use requirements.
UV-PIPE-NX is ready to use and does not require any special maintenance, except for the periodical replacement of the lamps. The UV-PIPE-NX is entirely manufactured in Italy, with high quality and extremely resistant materials.


UV-PIPE-NX can be installed in places where space is very limited, for example for the disinfection of packaging film, conveyors, bottling lines for disinfection of bottles and their closing capsules, as well as the treatment of the same food products, decontamination from germs of the surfaces of the conveyor belts, of the products, of the packaging, etc.
The comfortable grip allows manual use for localised disinfection of surfaces, containers, products, subject to required precautions and UV ray protection.
UV-PIPE-NX is designed and conceived specifically for applications in the food industry, and that is why one of its features is also the IP65 protection level, allowing it to combine perfectly with damp environments and water splashes.
Traditional cleaning methods are, often, not sufficient to ensure high levels of hygiene, which can be achieved only by the use of UV-C technology.
As a matter of fact, food processes and storage have the need to be kept under control, by monitoring hygiene levels, to increase quality standards, which are usually very high.
It is shown how, in the food industry, an increased hygiene level allows a consequent and general product quality improvement. UV-PIPE-NX 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-PIPE-NX can be otherwise achieved but only with a massive use of 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 really does work when applied correctly and with the necessary precautions. The difference between a quality project and an unsuccessful application is in-depth knowledge and experience gained over time. Since 1987, Light Progress has been carrying out successful projects all over the world and has acquired a clientele of major companies in all sectors that require verified hygienic conditions to produce quality products and services.
