UV-BOX tabletop by Light Progress Europe is among the few items on the market to offer an extremely quick and truly effective way to safely disinfect objects, tools and equipment. Great things come in small packages. This small yet very powerful disinfection chamber has a stainless steel structure and is equipped with a flat stainless steel internal perforated tray. Items requiring surface disinfection are simply placed on the tray. UV-BOX works by treating the surface of the item with a high dosage rate of UV-C light at the prescribed wavelength of 253.7 nanometres. The BOXes are equipped with high-output Ultra Violet Germicidal Irradiating lamps and highly polished reflective surfaces. The direct and reflective Ultra Violet Rays provide a high level of disinfection, up to 99.99% within a very short exposure time (seconds).
Germicidal Ultraviolet irradiation has a proven, strong germicidal effect against micro-organisms (moulds, bacteria, and viruses). In little time the disinfection level of UV-BOX can achieve a reduction of over 99.9% on live bacteria strains such as Bacillus, Coli, Clostridium, Legionella, Vibrio, Salmonella, Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus etc. A higher level of disinfection can be achieved depending on surfaces and extended cycle times selected by the operator.
Traditional disinfection methods
Traditional disinfection requires the use of chemicals to wipe the surface of the object. This is often not sufficient to ensure high levels of hygiene. UV-BOX provides a proven method of disinfection that has been independently tested and validated. With UVC technology there are no nasty chemicals involved, providing a healthier environment for all.
Operation of UV-BOX tabletop
Safe and simple to operate. Place the potentially contaminated item within, close the lid, set the digital timer and push “start”. The steel door is equipped with a transparent anti UV polycarbonate insignia allowing visual indication of the state of operation. Whenever the door is closed the UV lamps activate and start the disinfection cycle. If the door is opened during the cycle, sensors will automatically deactivate the UV lamps to ensure the safety of personnel. The lamps will reactivate once the doors are closed again. The irradiation time can be adjusted. Typical cycle times are under 180 seconds.
The use of UVC light in the 253.7 nanometres wavelength means there is no Ozone produced. This is particularly important and must be taken into consideration when purchasing UVC equipment as Ozone is hazardous to humans.
UV-BOX can be used for germicidal disinfection of objects, tools and equipment for many industries including healthcare, laboratories, food-beverage, hospitality, retail shops, hotels, offices, education, travel, beauty, just about anywhere…
