Conveying Food with Top Hygiene


JenAct– part of the Jenton Group – has launched a new food treatment conveyor for cost effective sterilisation, neutralisation and disinfection of microbiological contamination on food products. The hygienic, fully washdown system has been designed to help prevent spoilage, allow longer shelf life and reduce waste in line with retailer and government requirements.

JenAct’s new IP65 rated wire
belt UV disinfection conveyor is produced from stainless steel and has integrated disinfection zones for food products such as salmon fillets or fruit to pass through.
Incorporating JenAct’s UV Torpedo technology, the unit’s shatterproof UVC lamp fixtures are mounted above and below the actual belt.

NO SHADOWING IN USE

The new UV disinfection conveyor uses UV tunnels to achieve 360 degrees of UVC irradiation while a built in, custom-designed reflector maximises UVC output. JenAct’s proprietary system moves the product on the wire belt to ensure the whole product  is treated and shadowing does not occur in the process.
“It has long been recognised that the surface contamination of some food products such as fish with listeria monocytogenes can significantly reduce shelf life,” says Dr Jarek Bilek from JenAct “UV germicidal radiation greatly reduces spoilage micro-organism on salmon fillets, for example, and provides a significant extension of shelf life.“Plus, UV treatment does not require water or chemicals, which ultimately leads to cost savings, he says. “Most importantly, the appearance and taste of food products is unaffected,” he tells
