Steril-Aire Model DE Series
UVC Emitters™

Very High Output Germicidal Light Source for Food, Pharmaceutical and Beverage Processing Applications


Shatter Resistant UVC Emitters


Steril-Aire's shatter-resistant, plastic-sheathed “UVC Emitters™” are ideal for mold and microbial control in critical processing applications. These food, beverage and pharmaceutical grade tubes continously eradicate mold, bacteria and phage in accordance with FDA standards, even in many formerly impossible places.

Enhanced safety and performance stem from a patent-pending, highly engineered resin coating that encapsulates the tube to prevent glass contamination in the unlikely event of tube breakage. This encasement ensures the highest level of protection for any application requiring containment of glass fragments.

Steril-Aire's patented devices and applications are especially effective in the once prohibitive cold and/or moving air environments where most equipment and processes operate today. The devices can be used for direct (surface) or indirect (airborne) eradication of virtually any microoranism or other undesirable organic material.

Application


Food processing: Shatter-resistant UVC Emitters can continuously disinfect process surfaces, vats and other containers, and almost all types of food and food packaging materials. Food products can be exposed to UVC energy as it enters and/or exits packaging and drying areas. The devices work effectively in cold environments where UVC energy has not worked before.

Pharmaceutical manufacturing: UVC Emitters are used at A/C coils for decontamination, where they also restore heat exchange efficiency to maintain temperature and humidity at proper levels. Local UVC can now be used where products are handled or ampoule filling, filtering or bottling is taking place, including some injectables. Cabinets containing filling or processing instruments may be equipped with UVC lights for continuous disinfection.

Bottling plants: High-speed blow molding and filling machines typical in bottles water production can fail if sensible and latent heat levels are not maintained. UVC energy at the cooling coil prevents failure while decontaminating A/C system components. Installing UVC lights at various exposure points along the filling and bottling process can further reduce potential contamination.

Benefits


  • Improves product quality and production yields; reduces rejects.
  • Greatly extends shelf life of many food and beverage products.
  • Provides constant, non-chemical cleaning and disinfection of surfaces; produces no ozone or other secondary contamination.
  • Continuously cleans cooling coils to reduce or eliminate viable and/or contaminating spores, mycotoxins and fungal VOC's.
  • Complete line of these shatter-resistant UVC Emitters fit any application. Choices include double-ended fixtures (shown at top of photo) and single-ended fixtures (bottom) in several lengths.


UVC Emitters vs. Conventional UVC


Output Graph


Steril - Aire shatter - resistant UVC Emitter™ is encased in a plastic sheathing that protects the tube against breakage with no loss in performance. As shown, output of the plastic - sheathed tube shows only very slight variances from a standard UVC Emitter.

Specifications


Emitter tube is a very high output, hot cathode, T5 diameter, medium bi-pin type that produces broadband UVC energy of 250-260 nm. Each tube produces the specified output at any airflow velocity and air at temperatures of between 35-120� F. It produces no ozone or other secondary contamination.

Plastic sheathing: The tube shall be hermetically encapsulated in a plastic sheath precluding glass contamination in the event of tube breakage. The encasement shall cover the Emitter� tube end face to tube end face and shall be comprised of a highly engineered FEP resin coating of no less than 0.25mm thickness. The process shall not reduce the tube's typical output over its one-year life cycle and shall produce only slight variances over its normal operating range of 35-120� F.

Independent testing: When tested in accordance with the general provisions of IES Lighting Handbook, 1981 Applications Volume, output per 1" arc length is not less than 12mW/cm2 at 1 meter in a 500 fpm air stream of 45� F.

Housing, power source, reflector or sockets, etc: Consult individual product specifications for the desired model of UVC fixture for your application.
