Food Surface Treatment Tunnel

Purpose: 360-degree treatment tunnel and conveyor system for food surface treatment.

The RGF Food Surface Treatment Tunnel, utilizing Photohydronization® (PHI), is a breakthrough in food processing technology. The patent pending food tunnel is designed to be placed at the end of the process line just prior to packaging or prior to grinding. At this point in the process, the food tunnel can provide final non-chemical, anti-microbial treatment, and protect products from human error or other cross contamination events which may have occurred earlier during processing. The modular design allows for sections to be assembled to fulfill customer’s precise requirements.

Inside the food tunnel we have strategically placed a series of ultraviolet light emitters, as well as our patented Photohydroionization® module. Specially designed coated aluminum supports and FDA approved high impact polymer shrouds protect each emitter, preventing glass and mercury from entering the work environment should breakage occur. The internal system surfaces are made of mirror polished stainless surfaces to maximize reflectivity and reduce issues of shadowing.

Food enters the tunnel carried on a low profile, open weave conveyer belt. The belt is designed for the dimensions and weight load of the product to be treated. This dry environment process incorporates high intensity targeted ultraviolet light, ozone degradation, and PHI to create a powerful advanced oxidation treatment environment for most food surfaces. There are no changes in color, taste or organoleptic qualities.
