GAITHERSBURG, Md., July 29, 2015 — Heraeus Noblelight America LLC has announced the Heraeus Premium UV disinfection system for food packaging surfaces.
The UV lamp has a service life of up to 12,000 operating hours and reduces germ load by 99.9 percent. The necessary UV dose is calculated by multiplying the irradiation power of the UV lamp by the irradiation time. The intensity is also dependent on the distance between the module and the packaging.
UV disinfection is primarily used on the surfaces of packaging materials that come in contact with fresh milk products stored in the cold chain, extending product shelf life.
