UV-STICK-NX(AL)+ UV-STICK-NX-ST is composed of:

UV-STICK series includes a wide range of models of direct radiation reglette, different according to the UV-C wattages of the lamp/s, to the case material (aluminium) avaiable also and the possibility to have a device with dual lamps on wheels (model -ST).
The UV-STICK has a stainless steel structure or in ALUMINIUM and is equipped with a power cable 2.5 m long, without plug.
UV-STICK can be equipped with special units for operational control, which, especially in the case of installation of several units, can handle switching on and off, input security check in the room treated, failure alarm and hour-counter. 
Its super compact size and wide range of available models also enable applications other than ceiling as within other machinery, in tanks, in silos, in laminar flow hoods, etc.
UV-STICK is ready to use and does not require any special maintenance, except for the periodical replacement of the lamps. UV-STICK is entirely manufactured in Italy, with high quality and extremely resistant materials.

UV-STICK-NX(AL)+ UV-STICK-NX-ST

The UV-STICK allows deep air and surface disinfection in any type of food environment.  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, environments where food is processed need to be disinfected to keep high hygiene and quality standards, typical of this sector. With UV-STICK, it is possible to achieve disinfection of production, packaging, storage, areas, etc. in a simple, immediate and safeway, without developing heat, without the use of liquids and without any contraindications. 
UV-STICK is equipped with one or due UV-C lamps, and it applies as a common ceiling fixture. The device can be switched on during work breaks, always when the staff is not present, so it radiates surfaces, which are then disinfected. In environments, the natural recirculation of the currents also allows air treatment, which, purified by the microbial load, creates the ideal environment for production, process and preservation of food. 
It is shown how, in the food industry, an increased hygiene level allows a consequent and general product quality increase and, more specifically, UV-STICK achieves the elimination (99%) of bacteria such as Bacillus, Coli, Clostridium, Legionella, Vibrio, Salmonella, Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus, etc. in just 4 minutes of operation. 
High disinfection levels of UV-STICK can be otherwise achieved but only with the use of chemicals, hazardous to health and harmful to the environment, as well as costly.

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.
