UV light treatment is a non–thermal, non–chemical technology to inactivate microorganisms.

It has been used to disinfect water and air systems and for decontamination of packaging and work surfaces for many years.

Current industrial applications include surface decontamination of food products such as bread.

In Campden BRI's ultraviolet light tunnel system, the product can be treated from both above and below.

The system can be adjusted depending on the product being treated. As well as bread, it can also be used to treat a variety of products, such as fruit, vegetables, meat and fish.

Treatment with ultraviolet energy does not leave a residue, and does not require extensive safety equipment to utilize. It is easy to use and is relatively inexpensive in terms of equipment, energy use and maintenance.
