FEM is now supplying ultraviolet germicidal lamps from Pujadas, said to be suitable for businesses looking for a simple way to help disinfect surfaces and objects.
UV light should kill 99% of germs and bacteria exposed to it, and as the catering and foodservice industry ramps up its hygiene standards in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, many businesses are looking to harness this technique for themselves.
The UV lamp from Pujadas provides a way of disinfecting a range of surfaces and objects, including tablecloths, covers, electronic devices and face masks.
Requiring two AAA batteries, it is constructed from plastic and features a directional lightbulb which should allow items to be processed safely, without danger of exposing the operator’s eyes to the UV light.
Controlled with a single button, a minimum exposure of 20 seconds is said to break apart bacterial DNA, with no chemicals and leaving no odour.
This is aimed at sterilising objects that can’t be cleaned by traditional methods as well as providing a top-up to the regular cleaning schedule to those that can.
