Why is UV food sterilizer safe?
UV is electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths between 10 nm and 400 nm. This destroys the DNA of bacteria and viruses, rendering them incapable of reproduction. Because the sterilization process does not require heat, it will not destroy the nutrients and natural flavor of the food. The DNA molecules that are damaged by UV light will be broken down when they enter the body. Therefore, no harmful substances are produced. So, although UV has the ability to cause cancer. But the food treated with UV sterilization equipment is no safety problems.
The origin of the ultraviolet sterilizer machine
Germicidal UV was actually studied more than 100 years ago. However, early research applications were limited by the production technology of hardware such as UV lamps, UV sensors, and other equipment. With the development of the times, UV sanitizer machine has become increasingly sophisticated, gradually revealing their low cost, outstanding effect on the treatment of stubborn microorganisms, and high-efficiency advantages. Also developed different forms of UV food sterilizer machine, such as wind cabinet types, duct types, furnace types, tunnel types, plate types, etc.
The advantages of UV sterilization equipment
- Uv food sterilizer has the advantages of short reaction time and fast sterilization speed.
- No need to use chemicals can avoid the possibility of secondary pollution.
- The operating cost is low.
