At UVO3 we often talk about UV water disinfection, however, we don’t often talk about other types of disinfection that our UV units can be used for. In your household there are many other uses and benefits for using UV disinfection methods.
You can use UV disinfection to reduce odour and grease ready for your food service. The UV system can be fitted to your kitchen hood exhaust system for a clean and safe kitchen for all. This can be used as a permanent solution for both domestic and commercial kitchen environments.
Our UV disinfection lamps can effectively remove grease and smoke in the kitchen, ensuring that there is no grease build up in the pipeline which reduces the long cleaning process, as well as breaking down the fumes and bacteria to reach sterilisation whilst deodorising.
The basic design of a UV disinfection system in the exhaust hood includes long cylindrical UV bulbs mounted into your cabinets behind the filters – helping to break down grease molecules in the exhaust air stream. This then creates ozone and dry carbon ash – which is much better than liquid grease fuel.
There are many benefits to this, including:
- UV disinfection can prevent flue fire hazard, when the system is fitted to the entrance of the hood. This removes the left-over grease in the pipeline that is hazardous to fire.
- UV disinfection also prevents secondary pollution in your kitchen. Your UV system oxidises most of the oil fumes to water molecules and carbon dioxide, which is then removed by the exhaust. There is therefore no residual water, oil or radiation.
- Another great benefit is that this cleaning process does not require water and runs simultaneously with the exhaust system – reducing cost and energy required to clean this device.
- The cleaning process of your kitchen exhaust does not affect the running of your kitchen as it runs alongside. Meaning that you do not need to close your kitchen for maintenance and cleaning. Your UV disinfection system can be fitted to your current exhaust hood and will not need replacing.
The UV-light is an excellent choice not only for hoods in new kitchens but also for refurbishments as the equipment does not change the outer dimensions.
