UV-C and AFT Disinfection/ Decontamination Solutions

UV technology makes use of the bactericidal effect of UV-C light in the form of UV-C disinfection and Active Field Technology (AFT). The technology is used globally, and can destroy more than 99.99% of all pathogens within seconds, without addition of chemicals, without harmful side effects, inexpensively, highly efficiently and reliably.

Air and surface disinfection systems are deployed where there is a risk of contamination by airborne micro-organisms such as viruses, bacteria and fungi. With the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, UV-C and AFT solutions are playing an ever-increasing role in solving these major challenges.

In food production, the technology is used to enhance product quality and extend shelf life. In offices, it can improve the indoor air quality to improve overall wellbeing and reduce absenteeism. In healthcare, it is used for whole room decontamination and in airports it disinfects security trays. Retrofitted in HVAC and air handling units it produces energy savings and reduced maintenance costs. 

UV-C and AFT technology is versatile and has many applications across sectors, please contact us to discuss requirements.

Food producers, processors and retailers face many challenges around the demands for increased freshness and longer shelf life of produce and have a responsibility to mitigate health threats from microbiological contamination, e.g. Salmonella, E. coli, Campylobacter, Listeria, etc.  Contaminated packaging is one of the primary causes of the contaminated foodstuffs, where bacteria and mould and can reduce the shelf life of products or result in expensive product recalls.

UV-C and Active Field Technology (AFT) disinfection systems can reduce the proportion of micro-organisms by up to 99.99%.

The use of ultraviolet light (UV) is now well established within the food processing sector as an alternative to traditional thermal processing and chemical wash systems. Areas of application include direct product decontamination, treatment of food contact surfaces, air disinfection and liquid treatment. It can also be applied to the decontamination of bulk ingredients in food production, for example infant formula manufacture.

Enva offer a range of UV-C and AFT products for food production, storage and transportation environments. Air, surface and liquid disinfection solutions are available for products, packaging materials and food contact surfaces, whether fruit, vegetables, dairy, bread, drinks, flowers, sea food, meat or poultry products.

Hygiene and infection control to eliminate infection risk to patients and healthcare professionals is of paramount importance to healthcare facilities. Infectious diseases such as Tuberculosis, MRSA, C. Difficile and Norovirus can be spread by airborne transmission in addition to physical transportation (e.g. on hands, clothing & surgical instruments).

UV-C and Active Field Technology (AFT) is a proven technology and highly effective against many pathogenic micro-organisms with the potential to reduce the spread of airborne infections in healthcare facilities.

Whole room UV-C / AFT disinfection solutions may be applied to care homes, hospital wards, theatres, isolation rooms and ambulances. Air disinfection solutions can be retrofitted into existing ventilation/ air conditioning systems, and wall-mounted or portable solutions are available, depending on requirements, for example for use on trolleys and wheelchairs.

Enva provide the expertise to identify the most relevant UV-C and AFT technology solution for the area, in partnership with manufacturer UV Technology Global (UVTG).

Shopping centres, restaurants, gyms, bars, hotels, cinemas, museums and libraries are typical areas of high frequency contact between both customers and staff. The need for high levels of hygiene and safety has never been more critical during the current global COVID-19 pandemic.

Communal areas and shared facilities e.g. toilets, trolleys, seating are all places where viruses and bacterial contamination can be spread by ‘frequent touch’ surfaces and between people who are in close contact with one and another. Normal cleaning and disinfection may leave behind some residual contamination, which UV-C can destroy.

According to the World Health Organisation, health problems caused by mould and other airborne contaminants contribute to reduced productivity and absenteeism in the workplace. Regional authorities, service providers, landlords, company owners and staff need to ensure that hygiene levels are maintained on a daily basis to deliver a safe environment for all. Even with regular cleaning of air handling systems, which is expensive and inconvenient, indoor air quality (IAQ) quickly reverts to a contaminated state.

Commercial buildings such as data centres, offices, call centres, and municipal and residential accommodation are also areas of high frequency contact between people, a high level of surface hygiene and safety is also vital in the current pandemic.

UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C are all part of the ultraviolet light spectrum.

  • UV-A results in skin tanning and is used in medicine to treat certain skin disorders.
  • UV-B has a very high penetrating ability and results in sunburn. Prolonged exposure is responsible for some types of skin disease, skin ageing and cataracts.
  • UV-C has extremely low penetrating ability and is nearly completely absorbed by the outer, dead layer of skin where it does little harm.

UV-C for decontamination and disinfection

  • UV Technology makes use of the bactericidal effect of UV-C light in the form of UV-C disinfection. 
  • Ultraviolet light in the C spectrum (UV-C) is energy-rich light with a wavelength of 200 – 280 nanometres (nm). 
  • UV-C light is very versatile and can be used for disinfecting water, destroying harmful micro-organisms in other liquids, on surfaces, on food products and in ‘air’.

With UV-C technology it is possible to destroy more than 99.99% of all pathogens within seconds, without addition of chemicals, without harmful side effects, inexpensively, highly efficiently and reliably.

Traditionally disinfectant was applied to troughs, tanks and spray tunnels for decontamination, using water mixed with a chlorine-based solution. Governments and legislation are driving restrictions on the use of chlorine and other chemicals in food production.

Chemical disinfection is expensive and uses a large amount of water and chemicals and requires wastewater to be treated before it leaves the production facility. It is also unsuitable for some packaging components which may burst when water is applied leading to spoilage and contamination. Water is also a potential breeding ground for bacteria, and wherever possible food producers should strive to adopt dry production methods to avoid the growth of pathogens.

With UV-C and AFT technology it is possible to destroy more than 99.99% of all pathogens within seconds, without addition of chemicals, without harmful side effects, inexpensively, highly efficiently and reliably.
