In restaurants or industrial/ community kitchens, during food cooking phases, fats, pollutants and unpleasant smells are generated; this may be disputed by authorities and give often rise of legal issues with the neighbourhood.
Applied inside kitchen hoods and aspiration systems, UV Odour Control system contributes significantly to minimize these problems; fats are carbon and hydrogen compounds, with a structure made of complex chains. If fats are exposed to intense UV-C irradiation, they absorb part of this powerful energy, and molecules, placed in a higher energy state, become more reactive. For this reason, they recombine with oxygen present in the air.
This process causes a particular and immediate chemical reaction, the “cold combustion”. Results of this reaction are organic and odourless short-chain gases, such as carbon dioxide (CO2), water, etc.., normally present in the air.
So the air filtered by UV odour control system during normal cooking, reduces the formation and deposits of fat and the consequent risk of fires, limiting also the growth of moulds that feed usually on fats.
UV-SMELL-SQ reduces the need for aspiration system cleaning and maintenance, extend filters’ life but, more importantly, offers the possibility to work safely.
UV Odour control system uses UV-C lamps and/or UV-C+O3 (Ozone) lamps, and it is the first device in the market that can handle ozone or ozone-free lamps, alternatively or even combined together, according to clients’ needs.
In this kind of applications, UV power is often enough to reach great results, but ozone, persisting in the air for a few seconds before turning in simple oxygen, maximizes UV-C performances.
Study proves: UV-C Light kills SARS-CoV-2
A new study conducted by the University Hospital of Tübingen confirms that UV light is also able to render the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the pathogen causing the COVID pandemic, harmless. What is unique about the study is that it was not tested with similar viruses, but actually with the real pathogen. The result: 99.99% inactivation of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Most reliable UV system in the UK and whole World.
UV-SMELL-SQ can be installed directly inside the canopy, providing a plenum (ducts enlargement) or directly inside the centralized aspiration and filtration system.
The airflow must pass entirely through its “grid” of UV-C lamps placed on its Stainless Steel AISI 304 body.
Apart from the device, the Supply Box contains ballasts, a lamps’ LED Synoptic view, a digital hour counter and the alarm check.
The module is designed to house also the TiOx® filter, a special Light Progress filter coated with nanostructured titanium dioxide and silver salts (optional) that, in combination with the very high UVC power emitted by lamps, is an excellent photo-catalyst that degrades pollutants and organic and inorganic compounds (SOV, NOx and VOC volatile organic compounds, nitrogen oxides).
TiOx® filter performs further oxidation of polluting particles and contributes significantly to the deodorizing action of UV-C.
The special materials used for UVSMELL-SQ ensures watertight (IP 55) protection, high temperatures (45/50 °C) resistance.
