UV-DUCT-FL

Applied inside ducts, or in the final section of AHU (Air Handling Unit) UV-DUCT-FL creates an UVGI barrier that inhibits the proliferation of dangerous viruses, bacteria, moulds and spores settling inside Air Conditioning Systems.
UV-DUCT-FL purifies homogeneously the airflow running through its powerful lamps, eliminating the microbial load and the spreading and distribution of hazardous and annoying pathogens inside buildings.
In AC systems an unpleasant biofilm covers usually all inner surfaces as the result of microorganisms combination and favorable conditions for their proliferation, such as temperature changes, high humidity and darkness. UV-DUCT-FL inhibits the creation of this biofilm increasing Indoor Air Quality and comfort.
More specifically, the use of UV-DUCT-FL eliminates important issues related to AC Systems and deadly illnesses (such as Legionella Pneumophila, Tuberculosis, Flu, etc.) but also “Sick Building Syndrome”, “Monday Fever”, Asthma and Allergies. UV- DUCT-FL allows also the control of Hygiene high standards in Food industry and fights against Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) in hospitals.
UV- DUCT-FL application is important not only for IAQ and health, but a cleaner AC system is also more efficient from an economic point of view, with less operative and maintenance costs. As a matter of fact, using UVGI the need of filters replacement and clean of inner surfaces is less necessary than usual.
With UV- DUCT-FL you obtain a deep and continuous disinfection and cleaning of your AC system, without the use of expensive and polluting chemicals, , in few words with UV-DUCT-FL you have better comfort for people in the building, saving money.

UV-BOX

UV-BOX preserves the hygiene of tools, containers and of any type of equipment in the health sector. As a matter of fact, commonly used objects in the health sector have the need to be disinfected to mantain high hygiene and quality standards, typical of this sector. With UV-BOX, it is possible to perform the disinfection of equipment and tools in a simple, immediate and safe way, without developing heat, without using liquids and without any contraindications. The box is equipped with two UV-C lamps, installed in opposite positions, one on the top and one on the bottom, in order to radiate all surfaces to be disinfected and without any shadows. Moreover, the internal reflection increases the irradiation power, managing to significantly lower the exposure time required to achieve the disinfection level of 99.9%. The use of the UV-BOX is indicated when it is required to preserve the sterility of the tools, even hours after washing, so that they can be used safely during operations. It is shown that the control and the increase of hygiene level allows a consequent and general increase in quality both in healthcare facilities but also in pharmaceutical sector, in microbiological laboratories, etc. The disinfection level with UV-BOX achieves the elimination (99%) of bacteria such as Bacillus, Coli, Clostridium, Legionella, Vibrio, Salmonella, Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus, etc. in just a few minutes of operation. High disinfection levels of UV-BOX can be otherwise achieved, but only with chemicals, hazardous to health and harmful to the environment, as well as costly.

UV-FLOW-C

The UV-FLOW series includes UV-C ultraviolet germicidal devices with unidirectional flow. UV-FLOW is used for creating UV germ protection barriers to be placed above the doors of room with contamination control (clean rooms) or even for the treatment of air upper layers in restricted area.
The use of UV-FLOW allows an intensive air disinfection, essential in environments (food production) where it is necessary to operate in optimal microbiological conditions.
In food processing, it is recommended to create a decontamination area between two different areas, especially if one of them is to be kept under strict microbiological control. The mold spores and bacteria, freely circulating among spaces, are destroyed by the UV-C rays; this avoids the possibility that they settle on the surface of the processing products, thus increasing their shelf life. Traditional cleaning methods are, often, not sufficient to ensure high levels of hygiene, which can be achieved only by the use of UV-C technology. As a matter of fact, environments where food in processed need to be disinfected to keep high hygiene and quality standards, typical of this sector. With UV-FLOW, it is possible to create a bactericidal barrier between "grey" and "white" areas in a simple, immediate and secure manner, or treat the air in general, without developing heat, without chemicals and without any contraindications. It is shown how, in the food industry, an increased level of hygiene allows a consequent and general increase of product quality. UV-FLOW achieves the elimination (99%) of bacteria such as Bacillus, Coli, Clostridium, Legionella, Vibrio, Salmonella, Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus, etc. in just a few minutes of operation.

UV-SMELL-SQ

In restaurants or industrial/ community kitchens, during food cooking phases, fats, pollutants and unpleasant smells are generated; this may be disputed by authorities and give often rise of legal issues with the neighborhood.
Applied inside kitchen hoods and aspiration systems, UVSMELL-SQ contributes significantly to minimize these problems;
fats are carbon and hydrogen compounds, with a structure made of complex chains. If fats are exposed to an intense UV-C irradiation, they absorb part of this powerful energy, and molecules, placed in a higher energy state, become more reactive. For this reason they recombine with oxygen present in the air.
This process causes a particular and immediate chemical reaction, the “cold combustion”. Results of this reaction are organic and odorless short chain gases, such as carbon dioxide (CO2), water, etc.., normally present in air.
So the air filtered by UVSMELL- SQ during normal cooking, reduces the formation and deposits of fat and the consequent risk of fires, limiting also the growth of molds that feed usually on fats.
UV-SMELL-SQ reduces the need of aspiration system cleaning and maintenance, extend filters’ life but, more importantly, offers the possibility to work safely.
UV-SMELL-SQ uses UV-C lamps and/or UV-C+O3 (Ozone) lamps, and it is the firts device in the market that can handle ozone or ozone-free lamps, alternatively or even combined together, according to clients’ needs.
In these kind of applications, UV power is often enough to reach great results, but ozone, persisting in air for few seconds before turning in simple oxygen, maximizes UV-C performances.

UV-STICK

The UV-STICK allows deep air and surface disinfection in any type of food environment. Traditional cleaning methods are, often, not sufficient to ensure high levels of hygiene, which can be achieved only by the use of UV-C technology.
As a matter of fact, environments where food is processed need to be disinfected to keep high hygiene and quality standards, typical of this sector. With UV-STICK, it is possible to achieve disinfection of production, packaging, storage, areas, etc. in a simple, immediate and safeway, without developing heat, without the use of liquids and without any contraindications.
UV-STICK is equipped with one or due UV-C lamps, and it applies as a common ceiling fixture. The device can be switched on during work breaks, always when the staff is not present, so it radiates surfaces, which are then disinfected. In environments, the natural recirculation of the currents also allows air treatment, which, purified by the microbial load, creates the ideal environment for production, process and preservation of food.
It is shown how, in the food industry, an increased hygiene level allows a consequent and general product quality increase and, more specifically, UV-STICK achieves the elimination (99%) of bacteria such as Bacillus, Coli, Clostridium, Legionella, Vibrio, Salmonella, Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus, etc. in just 4 minutes of operation.
High disinfection levels of UV-STICK can be otherwise achieved but only with the use of chemicals, hazardous to health and harmful to the environment, as well as costly.

Stet Clean

Wearable disinfection
The first wearable automatic device for stethoscope disinfection, specifically designed to ensure security and deep hygiene to patients thanks to the action of UV-C LED.

The stethescope is the most used medical tool in the world
Hand-washing and the use of gloves and single use masks are universally recognized hygienic processes, though many scientific studies show that approximately 50% of sanitary personnel rarely regularly clean/disinfect their stethoscope, some just once a week. That percentage is further reduced by 10-20% if one considers those who disinfect the stethoscope before using it on each patient.
It's known that stethoscope contamination from microorganisms increases exponentially after each visit; improper cleaning of the membrane contributes to elevated risk of contamination between one patient and the next, and, consequently, the possibility of contracting infectious illnesses.
In Europe and in the USA, annual costs caused by ICA amount to approximately 40 billion dollars, an enormous figure that is subtracted from other important activities - from prevention, most of all. Recent scientific data permits a realistic estimate of 5%-7% of Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) can be attributed to the use of the stethoscope.
Hands, were once thought to be the principal vehicle of contamination, but recent research (MAYO CLINIC) has shown that the stethoscope is more contaminated than the hands. Stet Clean is an automatic, economic, effective and efficient solution for the disinfection of the stethoscope membrane.

About us

Company details

LIGHT PROGRESS has been founded in 1987, it all started from a simple intuition. Like many business realities, it began with two friends studying possible alternative solutions for environmental microbial contamination reduction, without the use of chemical means. The idea was to use Ultraviolet Rays, UV-C wavelength, known for their germicidal properties.

At that time UV-C was a poorly developed technology, but it seemed to be an effective and efficient solution and for this reason at Light Progress UV rays were explored, analyzed and tested.

The results were immediately striking, and, from the pioneering research, founders began a real production of ultraviolet germicidal for air treatment.

In the early 90s LIGHT PROGRESS portfolio included just a dozen of different devices, but company’s attitude was extremely oriented to research and design of new solutions, and applications of UV-C arise over the years.

LIGHT PROGRESS also diversified in AIRinlet (www.air-inlet.com) to meet the growing demands of accessories and systems related to ventilation in Livestock / Zootechnical sector. However, both compartments, UV-C and Livestock, have always their mission in research for solutions that improve the quality of health, comfort, environments and products, in every area.

In 30 years we have succeeded in thousands applications from all around the world, offering standard products from our catalogs but also designing custom solutions for specific customers’ needs.

We collaborate with large companies, leaders of food industry, with hospitals, universities and research institutes, but also with contractors in building and infrastructure field, transforming Ultraviolet Germicidal Technology in real and practical solutions.

In many cases the traditional microbial decontamination methods must be integrated to be really effective. The versatility and efficiency of LIGHT PROGRESS systems, together with our extensive know-how, are the starting point to apply this technology within your activities.

LIGHT PROGRESS, Italian creativity in UV-C.
