Specialised UV Systems for Liquid Sugar
The SSL range utilises the latest in advanced thin-film quartz and UVC lamp technology, and has a specially designed UV chamber to offer optimum UV disinfection performance at low UV Transmittance. The SSL range feature advanced thin-film quartz technology, sanitary finishes of 0.4 Ra / 0.8 Ra, sanitary tri-clamp connections, over temperature protection, CIP protection for sanitisation up to 100 degrees C.
Additionally the UV systems offered by atg UV are designed for total process integration, and come with a range of control and instrumentation options including UV monitoring, temperature control and MODBUS or PROFIBUS communication, and have the ability to control pumps and automatic valves.
As liquid sugar solutions have a high density, and low UVT, all atg UV Technology systems for liquid sugar disinfection utilise high intensity, medium pressure UV lamps. Systems are usually installed in-line after the storage tank discharge point, so the syrup is treated prior to dilution into the product, and prior to the addition of additives, flavourings or colourings, all of which reduce UV transmission.
UV disinfection has many advantages over alternative methods. Unlike chemical treatment, atg UV's disinfection process does not introduce toxins or residues into the manufacturing process and does not affect the chemical composition, taste, odour or pH.
UV systems can be used as either primary disinfection or as a secondary means of treatment. As UV disinfection has no residual effect, the best position to locate a treatment system is immediately prior to the point of use, ensuring incoming microbiological contaminants are destroyed and there is a minimal chance of post-treatment contamination.
UV systems are extremely low maintenance, offer a high output within a small foot print, are easy to install and are fully automatic and cannot be overdosed.
