Food and proces industry

There are many risks of contamination in the food and process industry.

Food and proces industry

Water quality is very important to guarantee food safety. UV-C disinfection inactivates pathogenic micro-organisms and thus guarantees safety. In addition, a VGE Pro UV system also makes it possible to reuse water. This saves costs and increases the sustainability of an organization. Apart from water treatment, UV can also be used to disinfect surfaces, such as the conveyor belt for products or packaging.

UV-C for safe process water

Pathogens are pathogenic microorganisms that pollute water and can spoil a product. A UV-C system from VGE Pro ensures safe (process) water and inactivates micro-organisms that can be harmful to the product, among other things. For example, the UV-system can support in guaranteeing food safety and in some cases extend the shelf life of a product.

 

Constant water quality

For products that largely consist of water or, for example, are often washed during the process, it is necessary that the water quality meets all requirements. Think for example, of water used in soft drinks, for the brewing process of beer or washing water of vegetables for processing. A water treatment with UV-C disinfection ensures that the quality of the water is constantly guaranteed. It is also very suitable to treat water before it is reused. The water is disinfected after use, making it free of pathogenic microorganisms and thus safe for reuse. This prevents water wastage and can reduce water costs.

VGE Pro UV-C systems

A VGE Pro UV-C system is a modular system that can be connected to a water treatment plant. The system can be controlled by a fully monitored operating system. This ensures that the water used in the process is always safe and disinfected. By using a UV sensor, the quality can also be guaranteed, so that there is certainty that the measured intensity is sufficient for the desired disinfection.

 

UV-C reduces the risk of contamination

UV-C reduces the risk of contamination by inactivating pathogens. In addition to water, UV is also perfectly usable for surface and air disinfection. Micro-organisms easily adhere to surfaces and are sometimes difficult to remove. For example, process lines cannot always be cleaned with water and / or chemical agents. Different types of surfaces can be disinfected with a VGE Pro UV system. Think of the treatment of a conveyor belt on which meat is transported or packaging materials such as (butter) tubs or bottles.

Which UV solutions apply?

Legionella prevention

The legionella bacteria is a major problem for human safety. The pathogenic bacterium spreads through water mist and can thus infect the respiratory tract.

Water reservoir

Many sectors use buffer tanks in which water is stored in reservoirs. This water can stand still for a long time, giving micro-organisms the opportunity to grow.

Low transmittance

By transmission is meant the transmittance of UV-C radiation in the water. It is possible that the water is of poor quality due to solid and / or dissolved substances.

Air disinfection

UV-C disinfection has been used for years to disinfect water, but is also ideal for air treatment. Air disinfection can be used to prevent the spread of microorganisms through the air.

Surface disinfection

UV-C disinfection has a long history in applications for water, but can also be used for disinfecting surfaces. These are surfaces to which microorganisms can attach themselves.
