DECONTAMINATION 

PHOTO DECONTAMINATION

BSL’s photo-decontamination system provides turbid (opaque) liquid photo purification using eco-friendly, ultraviolet (UV-C) technology. This process combines UV-C light with the turbulence that ensures every single part of the liquid or product receives a dosage of UV-C. The microbiological inactivation efficiency of our technology has been tried and tested on a broad range of translucent, turbid and opaque liquids.   

  • The direct, selective and efficient transfer of UV-C energy to microbial DNA limits side effects on liquids. This entire process of photo-decontamination does not affect the liquid’s nutritional, sensorial or marketing attributes

  • The system emits UV-C with a germicidal wavelength of 254nm. This neutralizes any microorganisms, including pathogens

  • The UV-C dosage depends on the product being treated and is controlled by the irradiance and exposure time.

This wavelength is specifically absorbed by DNA molecules, causing the formation of a DNA adduct (covalent modifications of the DNA). In the DNA molecules of the microorganisms, these adducts can prevent them to divide and grow, inducing cell death. Our product capacity is flexible and can be adapted to suit our clients’ needs. Our system comes in modules that are easily adapted to each product, depending on the dosage needed and capacities.
