Wall mounted system disables airborne microorganisms and reduces bacteria,moulds and viruses in seconds, with no chemicals

Leading designer and manufacturer of high performance UV air disinfection, UV surface disinfection and microwave UV technology JenAct , (tel: 01256 892194) – part of the Jenton Group of Companies – is highlighting the ability of its GRU-V® Food UV Air Disinfection Purifier to destroy coronavirus in food manufacturing, processing and packaging facilities.
JenAct’s wall mounted GRU-V Food UV  Air Disinfection Purifier is suitable for use in large food production and processing facilities or where fresh food is storied and handled.  It helps dramatically improve indoor air quality and energy efficiency whilst reducing airborne infection rates, absenteeism and building related illnesses.
GRU-V UV Air Disinfection Unit
The unit uses ultraviolet germicidal radiation to disable airborne microorganisms, and reduce bacteria, moulds and viruses in seconds, with no chemicals. The GRU-V Food UV Disinfection Air Purifier destroys more than 99.9% of Covid-19, Influenza, MRSA, tuberculosis and e-coli.
It is designed to achieve optimum circulation of air within a room, with low noise operation. The GRU-V Food accommodates two powerful germicidal UV lamps with a rated lifetime of 8,000 hours (approximately one year of continuous use) suitable for food storage and food production areas, with controlled humidity.
The GRU-V Food UV Air Disinfection Purifier is manufactured with a rigid stainless steel construction, supplied with shatterproof UVC lamps, does not produce any ozone, harmful particles or odours.
The GRU-V reduces cross contamination and increases product shelf life with no ozone, harmful particles, biocides, odours and chemicals.
It is proven that coronavirus survives longer in cold places. JenAct’s GRU-V Cool® UV Air Disinfection Purifier is designed to clean air in cooler environments such as cold food stores and large refrigeration areas.
Originally established to develop Jenton’s patented microwave UV technology, JenAct is a specialist in short-wave UV systems for germicidal applications in the food, pharmaceutical and healthcare industries. The company provides a complete solution for food processing applications as diverse as fish processing and bakeries.

Jenton Ariana (part of the Jenton Group of companies), a leading manufacturer of high performance food packaging automation, including convergers, seal testers, food stackers, and pad placers, has developed a high speed in line pack turning system. Designed for orientating trays used in top sealing applications, this equipment is set to increase production capacity by up to some 150%, allowing more trays to fit within a single cycle of the top sealer.Jenton Ariana’s new fully automatic pack turning system is capable of rotating trays from narrow edge leading to long edge leading at speeds up to 85 per minute. It can be easily adjusted for a range of pack sizes, is fully automatic and has no change parts. It can handle trays up to 600mm in length and a straight through option is also available.
Driven by high performance stepper motors, the packs can be turned at the highest possible speeds whilst still controlling the inertia and minimising product movement within the tray. Unlike conventional friction based turners, the new Jenton Ariana high speed pack turner provides extremely accurate 90 degree turns and also minimises the possibility of the pack reorienting itself.

Jenton Ariana has been designing and manufacturing food packaging equipment since the 1980s. Innovative design combined with reliable and elegantly simple function has led to the development of a wide range of advanced convergers, seal testers, conveyor control systems and pad placers.
