Storage containers or tanks for drinking water and other liquids are prone to contamination due to pressure compensation valves in the head space area. The Wedeco TE immersion UV module is a simple and chemical-free method for suppressing bacterial growth.
The TE installation consists of a low-pressure, high-output, amalgam lamp with a quartz sleeve. The efficient and temperature-stable Wedeco Spektrotherm lamps guarantee maximum disinfection from very cold to hot temperatures.
The TE type series also has a high-grade steel protection guard, which offers the highest possible security for both the quartz sleeve and the medium.
The systems are equipped with a lapped flange for simple installation into a tank filler neck. Moreover, the TE systems are suitable for Cleaning-In-Place (CIP). The number of TE modules to be installed varies depending upon container size and application.
Maintenance work can be completed without opening the tank.
Surface disinfection has become an important treatment method, especially in the food industry where high hygienic standards have to be met. Common UV applications are disinfecting caps, PE-screw caps, food containers, lids and packaging material (glass, metal, cardboard, foil, etc.), as well as a broad range of food products like meat, bread and fruit.
Apart from the food industry, UV surface disinfection can be used for knives or microbiological culture test tubes.
The lamps can be installed longitudinal, diagonal or perpendicular over the conveyor belt depending on their arc length and the width of the conveyor belt.
