Jenton International showcases at PPMA Total 2022 the smartest way to keep packaging lines, food processing conveyors and workplace environments hygienically disinfected with JenAct UV.

This September at the NEC, Birmingham, Jenton International revealed how to set workers’ minds at ease this winter when it comes to the on-going threat of coronavirus and other airborne illnesses.

Showcasing the latest range of its cutting-edge UVC disinfection equipment, pathogens in the workplace pose less of a problem, thanks to JenAct UV’s air- and surface-disinfection solutions.

Why UV?
UV has been used for disinfection for over a century. UVC light is proven to kill bacteria and viruses, including the coronavirus that causes Covid-19 and drug-resistant bacteria, on surfaces and in the air. As such, the specialist lamps employed in JenAct UV equipment can be used to disinfect workplaces of all sizes, by effectively deactivating pathogens present by 99.99%.

Scientifically tested, measured and categorised, performance can now be accurately and reliably modelled. To the extent that JenAct has perfected its UVC light solution by developing software which enables the company to match disinfection performance to customer requirements, including air flow and dimensions, as well as specified pathogens.

Food packaging peace of mind
Centrepiece of the JenAct display was the JenAct UV Roller Disinfection Conveyor. Delivering 99.99% disinfection of the surfaces of packaging and packaged products being transferred from low-care to high-care in food production facilities.

Providing full 360-degree UVC exposure, disruption of the RNA in viruses and DNA in bacteria and moulds cell nuclei occurs on all packaging surfaces. By inactivating microbiological contaminants, it stops them spreading to the food being packaged. The result is dry, contactless and chemical-free inactivation of viruses, bacteria and moulds on anything where there’s a risk of cross contamination.

An essential for the food preparation and packaging industry, the UV lamps used in both the UK-manufactured JenAct UV Roller Disinfection Conveyor and the rest of the range have been specially modified for use at cold temperatures. Ideal, therefore, for protecting people, products and packaging from dangerous bacteria and moulds.

Additional JenAct UV products for air disinfection include wall-mounted GRU-V® systems for smaller spaces such as pubs, bars, restaurants and hospitality venues where there’s no existing HVAC system; UV Torpedo® systems to improve air quality in environments that feature HVAC and air duct systems; plus horizontally mounted UV Jet™ systems designed to disinfect up to 3,500m³ of air per hour in larger production spaces.
