JENTON Ariana has announced the launch of or end-of-line high speed collation where minimal operator intervention and reliability are critical Described as being capable of operating at speeds up to 150 packs per minute, Jenton’s new collating system features multiple stacking finger modules to drop packs into the stack in a controlled manner. Stepper-driven infeed and outfeed belts control entry and exit of the trays.

The packs are fully contained to ensure ‘neat, stable’ stacks. The packs exit the outfeed of the converger and enter a short buffer conveyor where Jenton explained the speed is accurately controlled to ensure correct spacing between packs for stacking and indexing. The packs will then drop into the collating pocket.

“This is great synergy”, says Richard Little, managing director of Jenton. We already put Signify Lamps into our own range of equipment and the Signify range of passive upper air disinfection systems will sit alongside our own, established active systems. “Signify also offers a range of UV disinfection cabinets to complement the UV conveyors that we manufacture.”
JenAct UV equipment has seen an increase in demand in the battle against Covid-19 and food companies have a wide range of demands and disinfecting both surfaces in the air.
But, advises the company, it is vital to approach the issue in a scientific way. There is a vast body of evidence the links the dose and irradiance of UV-C to its effects on moulds, bacteria and viruses and JenAct has developed modelling software that allows confident predictions of performance.
Last year, Signify sponsored research carried out at Boston university which confirmed the efficacy of UV-Con SARS-CoV-2 and this data in included in the JenAct models.
“There are many UV-C solutions on the market, explains Little, “but potential users should check that there is empirical evidence that UV-C will do what’s required in each application – either by using validated models or by carrying out direct test, for instance using surrogate bacteria”.
JenAct also supplies UV-C monitoring equipment, BMS connectivity and data management for validation and control.
