According to Heraeus Amba Australia , a subsidiary of Heraeus Noblelight GmbH, UV radiation provides for ambient air of very low germ count in the foodstuffs industry.
UV lamps, available from Heraeus Amba Australia, are used for disinfection in air intake ducting and in storage rooms to produce air of very low germ count in production areas and storage rooms.
Ozone-generating UV lamps are fitted in kitchen exhaust hoods to break down greases and smells. The UV radiation prevents grease deposits, eliminates the danger of fire and saves on cleaning costs. Exhaust air containing contaminants or pollutants is treated with UV radiation in the industrial sector.
The unique Heraeus Longlife internal coating of the lamp tubes ensures a long lamp operating life. This Heraeus Longlife coating is also transparent to the very short wave, ozone-generating UV radiation at a wavelength of 185 nanometres. In this wavelength sector too, the lamp operating life is significantly extended compared with conventional technology to up to 12,000 hours.
