SaniLIGHT ® & Sani·Ray® Germicidal Ultraviolet Fixtures along with SANITRON® & MEGATRON® UV Water Purifiers, stop mold and bacteria from reproducing. Powerful UV-C Rays disrupt the DNA structure of a vast array of microorganisms, protecting the various areas of your meat processing and packaging facility. Germicidal Ultraviolet Lamps keep fixtures free from mold and slime, such as meat hooks, rails, sidewalls, ceilings, and conveyor belts. General Sanitary Conditions are improved, as water and liquids in meat processing facilities are continuously disinfected.
Use of SANITRON® & MEGATRON® units to ensure disinfected clean-in-place (CIP) water for all processing areas inhibits the possibility of rapid cross-contamination. Knives, saws, cutting boards, and packaging surfaces all benefit with water that has undergone UV treatment.
All areas of a facility that utilize Germicidal Ultraviolet (UV-C) Fixtures can require less frequent cleaning, thereby minimizing downtime and loss of normal plant operation. Contact one of our UV Application Specialists to discuss your particular needs.
Slaughtering rooms have an unusually high bacteria count. Due to the nature of this industry, even the most thorough cleaning and washing can’t eliminate odors or prevent slime and mold from forming on the walls, ceilings, and surfaces. For added sanitation benefit, turn on SaniLIGHT ® & Sani·Ray® Germicidal Ultraviolet Fixtures in the unoccupied room, after it has been cleaned. STER-L-RAY ® UV-C lamps, which are installed in the Germicidal Ultraviolet Fixtures, minimize odors and reduce the formation of bacteria and mold on walls, ceilings, general surfaces, providing an extra degree of sanitation.
Mold develops on the outer surface and inside the casing of sausages and hot dogs. Inside, the source is traced to mold spores and slime-forming bacteria that settle on the product during grinding, mixing, and stuffing. Once the product is hung in cooling and holding rooms, these spores continue to form on the outside of the casings.
When smoking and curing are taking place, the temperature is usually high enough to kill mold and slime-forming organisms outside the product. Unfortunately, if these products are not irradiated, cooling and holding rooms can be the ideal environment to harbor these same airborne bacteria. Airborne contamination is greatly reduced in cutting, grinding, and stuffing rooms with SaniLIGHT ® & Sani·Ray® Germicidal Ultraviolet Fixtures.
STER-L-RAY ® UV-C lamps inside the SaniLIGHT ® & Sani·Ray® provide unoccupied cooling rooms with the necessary protection against airborne slime and mold-producing organisms. The SaniLIGHT ® & Sani·Ray® create a sanitary environment for the storage of sausage and other smoked and encased products, resulting in a longer mold-free life of the product. Facilities that have Atlantic Ultraviolet Fixtures installed in sausage and hot dog kitchens have reported a significant increase in mold-free life of these products. SaniLIGHT ® & Sani·Ray® Germicidal Ultraviolet Fixtures have proved to be an indispensable aide.
Conveyor belts have plenty of moving parts as well as small and large areas that can be difficult to regularly clean and sanitize. Because disinfecting all surfaces, nooks, crannies, and moving parts is not the easiest, conveyor belts are a perfect environment for reproduction and proliferation of pathogenic and spoilage bacteria. Long downtime for detailed cleaning equates to the loss of revenue. SaniLIGHT ® or Sani·Ray® Germicidal Ultraviolet Fixtures can install above and on the sides of your conveyor belt and provide continuous ultraviolet rays to surfaces within.
