Every time a control panel is opened for inspection, repair or adjustment, there is a potential to spread pathogens from a contaminated area to other surfaces in the facility, including food contact surfaces. This may result in contaminated products, product recalls or outbreaks.
EPIC Panel Sterilight automatically provides the scientifically-proven amount of UV-C light and ozone to control pathogens and mitigate cross-contamination from control panels.
According to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), “UV-C (ultraviolet light in wavelengths 200-280 nm) is a known disinfectant for air, water, and nonporous surfaces.” UV-C has been used in hospitals and operating rooms for decades.
The US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports “Ozone has been used for years as a drinking water disinfectant.” Ozone is created by 185 nm UV-V.
EPIC Panel Sterilight’s broad-spectrum UV bulbs produce both ozone and UV-C, allowing for elimination of control panel pathogens below detectable levels.
Alternatives require the periodic, manual application of a hazardous chemical. In contrast, EPIC Panel Sterilight:
EPIC Panel Sterilight from SmartWash Solutions installs inside any electronic control panel and provides an automated, hands free treatment precisely designed to kill environmental pathogens, including Listeria, while minimizing impact or degradation on sensitive plastic or electronic components.
