UV-STYLO-A-NX is composed of:

UV-STYLO-A-NX consists of a stainless Steel AISI 304 container, with ultra compact dimensions, internally coated with mirror bright aluminium, specific for high UV reflection. The container houses a UV-C lamp, protected by a pure quartz sleeve. The whole system is watertight (IP68). Quartz also performs the important function of protecting the UV-C lamp from high and low temperatures, creating an air cushion between the lamp and the external environment, thus increasing UV-C output. A cylinder made of insulating material attached to the steel ase supports the quartz and contains the electrical connection between the lamp and the power cable. UV-STYLO-A-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. It is possible to choose between a “naked ballast” or to add a control panel to check operation, alarms and hour-counter  separately. (MASTER-STY) (optional). UV-STYLO-A-NX is ready to use and does not require any special maintenance, except for the periodical replacement of the lamps. UV-STYLO-A-NX is entirely manufactured in Italy, with high quality and extremely resistant materials.

UV-STYLO-A-NX

UV-STYLO-A-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, for decontamination from germs of any surfaces i.e. conveyor belts, products, packaging, etc. UV-STYLO-A-NX is designed specifically for applications in the food industry, and that is why one of its features is also the IP68 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 have the need to be controlled, by monitoring hygiene levels, to keep very high quality standards. It is shown how, in the food industry, an increased in hygiene level allows a consequent and general of product quality improvement and, more specifically, UV-STYLO-A-NX achieves the eliminantion (99%) of bacteria such as Bacillus, Coli, Clostridium, Legionella, Vibrio, Salmonella, Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus, etc. in just 4 minutes of operation. The - A serie includes special amalgam lamps. This type of bulbs, unlike the standard low pressure UV-C lamps, use a special “amalgam” made with metals, which optimize the UV germicidal power efficiency. Amalgam systems allows triple the UV-C emission compare to a low pressure lamp with the same length, and up to 16.000 hours life that guarantee a consequent cost saving. Amalgam lamps are perfect in application where there is a short timing of exposition, such as in some food packaging lines. High disinfection levels of UV-STYLO-A-NX 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.
