Utilizing commercial UV Sterilization in your Food or Beverage Manufacturing decreases contact time utilized with other types of disinfection processes. Not only is it fast and effective, it cuts costs and is environmentally friendly.
UV has conventionally been used to treat water that is clear and fresh, but it can also be used to effectively disinfect not-so-clear water streams, provided the UV equipment is sized appropriately to account for the difference in water quality.
The Manufacturing Market of Food and Beverage includes but is not limited to bottled water, food packaging, crop irrigation, carbonated beverages, product water for concentrates, soft drinks, tea, beer (microbrewers), wine, juice, vegetable wash water, meat, and poultry processing.
Many bottled water and soft drink producers around the globe rely on commercial UV sterilizers to provide microbial-free, pure water and ingredients, which help protect the ‘brand’, the flavor, and extend shelf life.
Aqua Ultraviolet has over four decades of experience in manufacturing commercial UV sterilizers to provide custom solutions to a wide variety of applications.
Ultraviolet (UV) light is a form of light that is invisible to the human eye. It occupies the portion of the electromagnetic spectrum between x-rays and visible light. A unique characteristic of UV light is that a specific range of its wavelengths, those between 200 and 300 nanometers (billionths of a meter), are categorized as germicidal – meaning commercial UV sterilizers are capable of inactivating microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, and protozoa.
Ultraviolet (UV) light disinfection systems play an important role in a complete water treatment process in aquaculture facilities.
Bottled water products are produced utilizing a multi-barrier approach, from source to finished product, that helps prevent possible harmful microorganisms or chemicals from contaminating the finished product or storage, production and transportation equipment.
Effective use of UV located at strategic points in the process can protect the overall integrity of the end product, lower maintenance costs by decreasing the microbial load.
It can also reduce some CIP sanitation frequencies and related maintenance on the equipment.
