UVC Solutions for Food Processing

It is critical for food and beverage processors, handlers and packagers to look at food safety in a new light: ultraviolet light.



Steril-Aire’s multi-patented UVC technology has been proven effective in food and beverage processing applications by providing continuous, non-chemical decontamination of food surfaces and the surrounding environment. Steril-Aire’s UVC Emitters® provide an exceptional level of protection against foodborne microorganisms and shed a whole new light on food safety with significant results.

Approved by the USDA and FDA for surface decontamination, germicidal UVC technology provides a cost-effective method to enhance food safety. Steril-Aire germicidal UVC Emitters® prevent mold, bacteria, yeast and viruses from contaminating food, meat and beverage products from the preparation of raw materials through processing, curing, packaging, transportation and storage. Steril-Aire’s UVC Emitters are ideal for surface disinfection, tumbling drums, conveyor and shaker systems, commercial refrigeration and other food processing equipment. Shatter-resistant Emitters are available to further protect against contamination.

Numerous studies have demonstrated that the HVAC system is a viable amplifier, reservoir and transport of bacteria and mold. Installed in HVAC and air makeup systems (AMUs), Steril-Aire UVC provides ongoing protection from mold and organic buildup on coils and drain pans.  Steril-Aire UVC delivers continuous, non-chemical surface and airstream decontamination, reducing airborne pathogens before they are circulated throughout your plant.

Steril-Aire UVC shines a new light on food safety with:

  • Enhanced food safety
  • Extended product shelf life
  • Improved quality and production yields
  • Reduced recall and mitigation
  • Reduced sales loss, brand damage and liability
  • Rapid return on investment

Never settle for less than Steril-Aire.
