Food & beverage
This for SITA is a very important application has UV units are very commonly used in the Food and Beverage industry. SITA is able to provide different solutions for disinfection to all market operators ( bottling factories, packing factories, slaughterhouses, fish farms, breweries etc etc)
Residual ozone destruction.
Ozone is a very powerful oxidizing and disinfecting agent used in several application.
For example in Food & Beverage and aquaculture application ozone is used to disinfect the piping and distribution system. Unfortunately residual ozone must be destroyed to prevent contact with used ingredients. Also in Ultra Pure Water applications (like Pharmaceutical ambient) ozone is often used but even here the residual ozone must be removed before using water obtained.
The problem of residual ozone can be solved using an UV unit. SITA ozone destruction units are studied and sized to be able to destroy ozone. UV rays are absorbed from ozone breaking oxygen bonds. UV dose needed for this porpoise e se will be much higher than standard UV dose given for bacteria inactivation. Often these units must have clamp connections, stainless steel 316 control panels and other special requirements so don't hesitate to contact our office.
