Brine disinfection: UV for meat processing facilities
UV disinfection systems from Hanovia eliminate water-borne pathogens that put food producers at high risk of costly and damaging product recalls. We have systems installed in many meat processing facilities, connected to brine chillers and also systems treating waste water at chicken processing plants.
Ultra violet light inactivates ‘Listeria monocytogenes’ and ‘lactic acid bacteria’ effectively making UV disinfection a very important function for processing meat. We have university testing validating our UV systems efficiency in disinfecting listeria in the very difficult brine chiller application.
Product features and benefits:
- Non chemical disinfection – Hanovia UV systems utilise powerful, low wavelength, ultraviolet light to destroy bacteria and other microorganisms without the use of chemicals. This makes your process simpler, extends the life of your RO or EDI membranes.
- Revolutionary optimised, absolute intensity UV monitor – Located within the chamber, it allows the controller to automatically correct the dose calculation as UV transmittance varies without the need for an external UV transmittance monitor.
- Smart controls – Ensure continuous monitoring and real-time display of the verified RED (Reduction Equivalent Dose) and allow three levels of password-protected security and provide Modbus output to SCADA systems, allowing event logging. In addition, the controller has an on-board message display panel and many other safety and alarm features.
- High efficiency, long life amalgam lamps – Hanovia uses the latest generation of amalgam lamps, all of which use the latest electronic ballast, ensuring extended lamp life (typically in excess of 10,000 hours).
- Easy Installation – The PureLine DO UV systems fit into existing pipework and vessels relatively easily, requiring minimum disruption and site preparation. Once installed, the production plant can be kept operational 24 hours a day, without the necessity of shutting down the plant during routine lamp change. When a lamp needs to be changed is it a simple procedure that can usually be done by on-site personnel with no specialist training.
