UV-DIRECT 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 in processed need to be disinfected to keep high hygiene and quality standards, typical of this sector. With UV-DIRECT, it is possible to achieve disinfection of production, packaging, storage areas, etc. in a simple, immediate and safe way, without developing heat, without the use of liquids and chemicals and without any contraindications. UV-DIRECT is equipped with a UV-C lamp, 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 increase of product quality. UV-DIRECT achieves the elimination (99%) of bacteria such as Bacillus, E. Coli, Clostridium, Legionella, Vibrio, Salmonella, Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus, etc. in just a few minutes of operation. High disinfection levels of UV-DIRECT can be otherwise achieved but only with chemicals, hazardous to health and harmful to the environment, as well as costly.
