Malaysian Soft Drink Manufacturer uses Hanovia UV to Remove Bacteria from Process Water

UV disinfection system installed after dechlorination unit

F&N Beverages Manufacturing Sdn Bhd in Malaysia has installed a Hanovia UV disinfection system at its state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Inanam, Kota Kinabalu. The Hanovia UV system is installed after an activated carbon dechlorination unit and is used to eliminate bacteria from water used in the soft drinks manufacturing process.

F&N is Malaysia’s largest soft drinks manufacturer, producing many of the country’s most well-known brands, including 100PLUS, F&N Fruit Tea and F&N SEASONS. The company’s brand promise is ‘Pure Enjoyment, Pure Goodness’, so quality is uppermost in all its manufacturing processes.

UV technology is required for this application to fulfil local QA/QC (quality assurance/quality control) requirements. Hanovia was selected as the UV system supplier due to the company’s reputation in the beverage industry and the fact that its UV systems are optimised for process water applications such as those found in beverage manufacturing. Added benefits for the customer included low operating and maintenance costs.

The benefits of UV

Meeting the increasingly rigorous hygiene standards required in the beverage industries is a real challenge. If improvements need to be made to plant and equipment, they need to bring quick returns on the investment and measurable improvements in product quality.

For manufacturers seeking to improve the quality of the end product, UV is an economic, realistic option. It is an established method of disinfecting drinking water throughout the world, and is also widely used for high purity applications such as pharmaceutical processing and microchip manufacturing, where water of the highest quality is essential.

There are no microorganisms known to be resistant to UV – this includes pathogenic bacteria such as Listeria, Legionella and Cryptosporidium (and its spores, which are resistant to chlorination).

UV disinfection systems are also easy to install, with minimum disruption to the plant. They need very little maintenance, the only requirement being replacement of the UV lamps every 9 – 12 months, depending on use. This is a simple operation that takes only a few minutes and can be carried out by general maintenance staff.

Science and Creativity Come Together with Spectroscopy and Pyrotechnics

Ocean Optics’ spectrometer assures special effects colour purity and safety for Le Maitre

Spectrometers from Ocean Optics are being used by Le Maitre Ltd in Surrey to ensure the quality and safety of its close proximity pyrotechnics. Ocean Optics spectrometers measure plasma emission and emissive colour of effects used in theatre productions, concerts, and sporting events. The measurements help Le Maitre ensure these explosive displays are consistently amazing and, most important, safe.

Le Maitre Pyrotechnics Developer Hamish Cavaye, Ph.D., runs live product tests in a silo in rural England. His challenge is to objectively verify that effects are producing the desired colours. As was recently proven with the pop culture “What colour is the dress?” phenomenon, the human eye is easily fooled. Using a spectrometer to verify colour purity, Cavaye looks for particular emission bands indicative of a specific chemical composition.

Measuring the emissive colour of pyrotechnics with a spectrometer also has the ability to signal safety issues. If the spectra identify elements that are not expected, it may indicate contamination. Verifying consistency not only ensures a pleasing colour for the audience but helps assure the safety of patrons and performers.

Measurement speed is also important in testing pyrotechnics, as some effects can last less than a second. With integration times on some Ocean Optics spectrometers as low as 1 ms, Cavaye can easily capture multiple spectra for each effect. Along with needing the precision and accuracy typically required of spectrometer measurements, Le Maitre had the additional challenge of requiring an instrument that was portable and durable. Compact miniature spectrometers can easily be brought to the testing silo and are rugged enough to withstand close proximity to live effects as they are firing.

Ocean Optics recently visited Le Maitre to see its spectrometers and Le Maitre’s effects in action. Watch the explosive video here: http://youtu.be/Nw0bNfNUYuQ?a.

This isn’t the first time Ocean Optics’ spectrometers have felt the heat. They’ve also been used for studying muzzle flashes from rifles, rocket plume emissions, and applications involving flame analysis of metals and other materials.
