Protect against pandemics.  
Provide IAQ (up to 99.9%) free of air-borne viruses bacteria and mould.  
Automatically cleans the coils.  
Save 10 to 20% of AC energy cost by improving HVAC.  
Increase life of coil and chillers.  
Reduce bacteria on food  
Provide a ROI "Return On Investment" in less than one year  
Water Conservation: Reclaiming clean condensate for cooling tower makeup, irrigation or gray water flushing reduces water and waste water costs.  
The UV-C lamps that Hygienic Energy Solutions supply are systems engineered to deliver the highest output in HVAC conditions, providing the best germicidal control.  
 
Installed in new or existing HVAC or refrigeration systems, germicidal UV-C keeps components clean to reduce energy and maintenance costs as well as improve Indoor air quality (IAQ)  
 
UV-C devices are used around the world in hospitals, laboratories, schools, government facilities, offices and homes.  
 
UV-C lamps are effective in reducing mould and bacterial contamination during food processing, packaging and storage to enhance quality and safety and extend shelf life of products
Food Processing  
 
Through the irradiation process, germicidal UV-C lamps are used in the food industry to prolong shelf life, preserve nutritional value, and reduce health hazards. Germicidal UV-C technology is a safe and cost-effective.  
 
Germicidal UV-C food irradiation uses UV-C light wave length of 254 nm to kill germs on packaging materials, working surfaces and foodstuffs.  
 
Germicidal lights can be used to treat food for an array of purposes:  
 
To prevent potatoes, onions and garlic from sprouting.  
To slow the process of ripening.  
To prevent mould and mildew from forming.  
To reduce the number of microorganisms in spices and herbs.  
To extend shelf life of, dried fruit, vegetables and nuts.  
To prolong shelf life and freshness, especially for dairy and bread products.  
To prevent food-borne illness, especially from meat, poultry and seafood  
To extend shelf life of meat, poultry and seafood.  
 
Germicidal UV-C Water Disinfection for Food and Beverage Industry  
Germicidal UV-C technology successfully destroys pathogenic microorganisms in water used in the production of drinks without altering the taste, smell or pH.  
 
Other water treated by germicidal UV-C include rinse water for fruits, veggies, meats, seafood, other foodstuffs and containers, cooling water, discharge water and process water. Once disinfected, process water can be recycled for flushing and rinsing.  
 
Bottled Water  
Germicidal UV-C technology is used in the beverage industry, especially for the bottled water market. Growing concerns with chemical waste entering our waste water treatment facilities make bottled water an attractive alternative.  
 
Sterilization of Non-Foodstuff Surfaces  
Germicidal UV-C lamps are also used to disinfect packaging, filling equipment, conveyor belts, transport containers and working surfaces.  
 
Packaging includes lids, cups, sealing and packaging foils for drinks and cool-chain foodstuffs.
Transport  Refrigeration  
 
UV-C cleans the coil in Cold Storage and dramatically reduces the spreading of microorganisms such as bacteria, moulds and yeast that can grow on refrigerator coils, this causes spoilage and decreases shelf-life. Organic or bacterial “slime” grows on produce and refrigerator coils, pans, and in drain lines that can block or restrict flow, causing cross-contamination to the other foods in the refrigerator.  
 
UV-C light disinfection systems will inactivate all known food spoilage microorganisms including bacteria, yeasts and mould spores, as well as food pathogens such as viruses.  
 
Unlike chemical treatments, UV does not introduce any toxins or residues. The benefits of using UV disinfection at various stages during food processing, storage, packaging and transportation can include:  
 
Non-thermal, physical food preservation method which does not introduce any toxins or residues.  
Increased shelf life by retention of weight, freshness and colour for longer.  
Reduced health risks such as Salmonella, E Coli, Campylobacter and Listeria.  
Improved quality.  
Reduced spoilage waste and customer complaints.  
Reduced use of chemicals, heat treatment, additives and preservatives.  
Reduced cross contamination.
Air disinfection systems are deployed where there is a risk of contamination by airborne micro-organisms such as germs, bacteria, fungi and viruses. These can trigger health problems in humans and could lead to premature spoilage or otherwise impair products. 
 
This particularly applies to the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries but can also be applied within the medical and clinical arenas. Furthermore these products are perfect for anywhere both onshore and offshore where people work and live in close proximity. Examples include office blocks, factories, hotels, ships, elite sporting facilities and accommodation and workspace modules. 
 
Micro-organisms are drawn into the system where they subjected to UV-C radiation which destroys up to 99.9% of them, depending on the dosage.
The quality of air plays a decisive role in people’s well-being. The risk of infections caused by air contaminated with microbes is particularly high in closed rooms – for example offices, doctors’ waiting rooms, outpatient operations, laboratories, old people’s homes and nursing wards. Bacteria, viruses and mould spores spread rapidly via the air and can pose a threat to health – from feeling unwell to serious illness. 
 
Many people frequently complain about inexplicable problems and symptoms. Poor air hygiene can be a cause of this. Germs can also pose a risk to healthy people, especially in areas where there is a particularly high concentration of microorganisms in the air. Risk situations include crowded doctors’ waiting rooms and air conditioning systems that transport viruses and bacteria combined with windows that cannot be opened in offices, unventilated nursing wards and insufficient air hygiene conditions in laboratories. Patients with immune deficiencies or people who already suffer from allergies, asthma or cardiovascular complaints are particularly at risk.
