UVC Technology

Process Air without Microorganisms

Eliminates Microorganisms in the Production Area
(98.99% Sterlizing effect with UV-C Technology)

Using UV-C Technology, JIMCO has specialised in the elimination of microorganisms and odours.

Due to increasingly higher hygiene demands in the food processing industry, the use of UV-C light to eliminate microorganisms e.g. bacteria, fungi and vira is becoming more and more commonly used.

Using UV-C light to eliminate microorganisms in the air is a technique that has been known for decades. UV-C light reduces the total amount of microorganisms in the room breaking the DNA bonds in the organisms.

In the food processing industry, intake of disinfected fresh air together with bacteria-killing lamps installed in the air ducts of coolers has a huge effect (coolers for bread is just an example).

UV-disinfection - based on an exact calculated radiation rate - keeps the process air free of microorganisms and thus complies with local regulations.

JIMCO A/S is receiver of the EU Environmental Award 1999-2000 for Cleaner Technology

STERILIZING UP TO 99.9% : JIMCO UV-C sterilization enhances the hygiene standards

A minor contamination with microbiology spread by air handling systems commonly used in the production areas may result in faulty commodity or a recall of the goods - an expensive measure for the company. To avoid this, a steadily increasing number of companies decide to sterilize the process air with UV-C light.

Depending on the calculated UV-C dosage, a kill rate of 99.9% of all microorganisms may be achieved. Together with the PLC-control, special UV-C probes developed by JIMCO A/S, ensure that the UV-C light is 100% effective.

Beside sterilizing the room air, UV-C sterilization may also improve the hygiene standard considerably in other processing areas (e.g. conveyor belts in cutters) or during packaging processes (conveyor belts, wrapping films etc.)

JIMCO UV-C sterilization directly affects the quality of your products:

  • Prolongs the durability of the products
  • Significantly fewer complaints on your products
  • Ensures freshness and quality
  • Ensures hygiene standards
Air disinfection of:
  • Food processing
  • Production of pharmaceutical products
Surface disinfection of:
  • Wrapping before the packaging process
  • Conveyor belts
  • Products during the production process

Applications Examples

  • Industrial Bakeries
    Reduces microorganisms when sterilizing production equipment in connection with room disinfection.
    • Manufacture of dough
    • Bread and bread cooling rooms
    • Bread slicing rooms and bread slicing units
    • Bread wrapping units

  • Slaughterhouses
    • Meat storage rooms / meat storage shelves
    • Cold storage rooms
    • Sausage filling / sausage machines
    • Smoker oven rooms
    • Filling of tinned goods

  • Dairies & Cheese Making Diaries
    Original cultures will not be contaminated by wild cultures in the air.
    • Milk tapping rooms
    • Cheese production / storage
    • Vessels (empty)
    • Production of ice (empty rooms)

  • Breweries, Cider Mills, Fruit Storage Facilities
    • Essense /- Cold storage rooms
    • Vessel & Fermentation tanks (empty)
    • Rooms with fermentation tanks
    • Filler units / filler rooms
    • Fruit storage rooms / packing rooms
    • Filling of fruit / vegetable tinned goods
      Using UV-C light to eliminate microorganisms is particularly efficiently when storing fresh food - fruit for instance. You do not have to leave the room during treatment.

  • Animal Breeding
    Indirect air disinfection efficiently reduces characteristic diseases of animals.
    • Pig stables
    • Chicken stables
