DISINFECTION OF INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION LINES

It has been amply shown how in the industrial field, increased hygiene leads to a subsequent rise in quality. Light Progress products make it possible to eliminate bacteria (up to 99.99%) in just a few minutes. UV-C technology acts on both the container (of food, or drugs), and the contents (a specific food, a specific drug), and lastly, even on the general production line (for food and pharmaceuticals). UV-C technology can therefore be applied to the transfer and packaging lines of industrial food products and pharmaceuticals such as: flow wrap packaging, thermoforming machines, sieves, cooling tunnels, automatic weighing machines and more generally conveyor belts, in addition to treating the food products themselves, decontaminating the surfaces of belts, products, and packages of germs.

Reduction of microbial load

The food and its container can be treated to considerably reduce the microbial load, improving the shelf life of products without any contraindications. Consider that airborne microbial contamination enters mainly through the ambient air and employees themselves (one person produces from 500 to 3000 bacteria with every expulsion of air, by simply breathing).

Physical action and ecological protection

The UV-C light treatment is purely physical, allows consistent treatment with the same level of efficacy, and is without the risk of potentially overdosing on UV rays. On the contrary, many chemical treatment methods involve the use of hazardous, not very biodegradable products, which therefore pose a risk to human health.

Immediate treatment

An effective treatment (elimination of 99.9% of bacteria) only takes a few seconds, therefore the modules can be applied in-line without disrupting food or pharmaceutical production processes.

Icon Lightprogress

Treatment without chemical/physical alteration

The treatment is cold and dry; it does not alter the sensory properties or quality of the exposed objects in any way, and leaves no residue.

Icon Lightprogress

Practicality and affordability

The treatment is immediate and ready for use. Maintenance is negligible and requires minimal expenditure in terms of energy consumption and servicing costs.

The benefits

of original Light Progress products

our range stands due to its advantageous solution because:

Icon Lightprogress

It includes specific products for industrial production during each stage of the production process.

Icon Lightprogress

every application in production/packaging lines is rated by simulating the possible results, using a highly reliable technique with dedicated software. Each UV system is individually calculated for each project, and its application includes the complete integration of the device into new and/or existing production lines, thus ensuring the lowest possible impact for assembly and maintenance, also thanks to the convenient accessories.

Icon Lightprogress

It is the only one that uses UV-C sources of any type (HO, amalgam, compact lamps, medium pressure...) and is supplied with all necessary safety systems such as automatic closure after a machine stop, ventilation, operator protection, custom control panels, alarm signals that can also be integrated by remote...

Icon Lightprogress

The optionals include the original UVLON® lamp protection, which prevents the glass from shattering in the event of breakage or an accident.

Icon Lightprogress

Thanks to our long-standing experience, we are able to advise you on a complete disinfection, including air and water treatment, for public or production environments.

How it works

UV rays eliminate up to 99.999% of microorganisms such as viruses and bacteria, destroying their DNA or RNA with minimal effort and without the use of hazardous chemicals or gases. The UV rays do not leave any residue, so the environments are immediately ready for use without any risk.

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.
