Sanitized food packaging with UV-C LED technology

Blog & News

Harmful germs such as bacteria, yeast and fungi must be completely removed during food packaging. UVC disinfection is a chemical-free cold and dry method which reduces the germ count by 99.9%. By not using chemicals you are sure not to alter the flavor, color or nutritional content of foods and beverages.

It only takes a few seconds of intense UV light to make food-spoiling microorganisms such as bacteria, yeast or fungi on food containers and films harmless.

 

The use of this technology in the packaging sector translates into great advantages:

  • A longer shelf life and fewer spoiled food remnants and / or economic losses due to contaminated food being produced.
  • Absence of chemical residues on food.
  • Reduction of production times.
  • Easy retrofit of filling and sealing machines with UVC Led systems.
  • Easy shielding of UVC radiation.
  • Long life of LEDs with low energy consumption.
  • Amortization of installation costs within a few months.
