Food & Beverage Processing/Packaging
American Ultraviolet offers several standard and custom UV solutions for food processing applications, including:
CE fixtures that can accommodate from 1 to 4 lamps, and are available in widths up to 60 inches. These fixtures, complete with UV lamps, can be placed over and under conveyor lines to reduce any mold or bacteria from food, films, or container surfaces, prior to packaging. If the application calls for a custom solution, our engineering department will design a system specifically for your facility or production line with a UV dose targeted to achieve a significant reduction of pathogens. Destroying mold and bacteria on the product, and from packaging material, has been shown to dramatically increase the shelf life of certain products.
All American Ultraviolet systems can be designed for any electrical supply configuration. Our standard and high output low pressure lamps have less than 8 grams of mercury, and a useful life of up to 18,000 hours, depending on the application. Our shatter-resistant coating is standard for all our food processing and packaging applications. For applications requiring a higher target dose, we can also offer amalgam and medium pressure lamp technology.

Prolonged, direct exposure to UVC light can cause temporary skin redness and eye irritation, but does not cause skin cancer or cataracts. American Ultraviolet systems are designed with safety in mind and, when properly installed by a professional contractor, do not allow exposure to UV irradiation and allow for safe operation and maintenance.
