The ultraviolet (UV) disinfection subsidiary of Jenton International has designed and shipped two new variants of its systems for the food industry. The GRU-V disinfection conveyor can disinfect raw food products at production line speeds in advance of packing or can disinfect outer packaging.

Maximum exposure is obtained by multiple lamp arrays above and below conveyor level, open mesh wire belt conveyor belt material and agitation to move products on belt to prevent shadowing.

UV light disrupts DNA in bacteria cells and is very effective against all food spoilage microorganisms including bacteria such as listeria, salmonella, E.Coli and campylobacter as well as yeasts and moulds.

JenAct UV conveyor disinfection systems emit a controlled UV emission that gives even exposure over the surface area and self-measure for security. Lamps are protected by UV-transparent fluorinated ethylene propylene materials and stainless steel housings.

“We are very excited about this new range” ​says Jenton md Richard Little. “It combines JenAct’s many patents in UV generation with Jenton’s expertise in food automation equipment.”
