With the introduction of the UV-C-based disinfection of air and surfaces, we now add yet another field of application to our patented UV-C technology, which has been awarded the EU Environmental Technology verification (ETV) and has won an EU clean technology award.

Since 1993 JIMCO technology has  has been used for disinfection purposes in food facilities, water and industrial applications.

In recent testing in an internationally accredited German laboratory our patented UV-C ozone technology was also proven to inactivate all corona virus and is a powerful too in the fight against COVID-19.

An expert opinion from the laboratory is available on request.


Why choose automatic disinfection of surfaces?

  • Avoid time-consuming manual disinfection with water and chemicals
  •  save thousands of litres of water as well as on energy for heating and drying
  •  It will disinfect more efficiently in corners, chinks and ventilation ducts, cooling surfaces.
  • Avoid strong chemicals, which have a negative impact on the environment and your employees health
  • Avoid an environmentally harmful release of chlorinated wastewater
  • Fast payback on your investment – often as little as 12 months

The disinfection module can with advantage be used with Jimco´s UV-C air sterilisation solutions that are typically installed in connection with existing ventilation systems. In this way, the customer will have a total solution, which cleans the air in the production rooms during working hours – and disinfects all surfaces after closing time, when the daily cleaning of machines and surfaces is complete while there are no longer people in place.

The start-up can take place automatically via a foregoing programming, e.g. when a given process is ended, or manually by pressing a button when the last person leaves the room. Besides production rooms, the solution can also be applied in a cooling and storage rooms, laboratories as well as in the health sector for the disinfection of bed units, etc.

In most environments, the system will provide savings on manpower, water, and heat in amounts that are so high that the repayment period will be as little as 12 months.

Very positive results – of tests as well as practical use

Prior to the introduction of our solutions for UV-C & Ozone-based disinfection, we have for some time conducted full-scale tests in various companies in co-operation with DTU (Technical University of Denmark) and The National Institute for Aquatic Resources. The results were very positive.

Furthermore, various tests carried out in co-operation with The South Danish university have shown that concentrations of for instance listeria and salmonella bacteria can be almost completely removed by means of our technology and within only one hour of operation.

Hygiene that is on a level with or better than traditional disinfection

At the fish factory Vega Salmon A/S, in Esbjerg DK, JIMCO’s system for UV-C & Ozone-based disinfection has been installed in the production area. Tests from the factory show that the total bacterial concentration after a UV-C & Ozone-based disinfection is better/lower than after a traditional disinfection. At the same time, the concentration of fungal spores is reduced.

This proves that saving thousands of litres of water and using less harmful chemicals has no hygienic consequences.
