Short-wavelength UV light (UVC) has been successfully used for the disinfection of surfaces in industries with high hygiene requirements, such as the food and health sectors, for many years. It destroys nucleic acids and disrupts the DNA of microorganisms, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions.
With the ability to kill up to 99.9% of bacteria and viruses, the UVC kits help protect passengers and staff from tactile transmission of contagious disease.
We are using this proven technology in our UVC light tray disinfection kit, which can be retrofitted into existing automated tray handlings systems. Our kits have been designed to automatically kill bacteria and viruses on trays as they’re being transported from reclaim back to the divest station without affecting the overall speed of the tray return system, the length of the lane or the operational efficiency.
For checkpoints with passive conveyor systems we have developed a mobile standalone solution.
As UV-C light can be harmful, the kits are safely shielded from any leakage using robust metal housing and following relevant safety standards such as BS EN ISO 15858:2016. Interlocks automatically shut off the UV-C lamps in the event of an emergency stop, tray blockages on the conveyor or opening the module.
