UV Lamps in the Food Processing Industry

Did you know that UV lamps are commonly used in the food processing industry? UV lamps are used to disinfect surfaces and packaging without the use of chemicals. As a result, shelf life is extended, nutritional value is preserved, and health hazards like exposure to viruses, bacteria, yeast, and fungi are reduced. UV light exposure is also being used as an alternative to pasteurization of certain liquids and thermal treatment of solid foods which can help to maintain the taste and flavor of these products. Handheld UV devices can also be used on a smaller scale in restaurants and at home in order to disinfect surfaces and tools.
