Whide Tube

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

Whide tube

Tube is a patented plug&play device that is applied inside professional refrigerators with forced air circulation and is able to sanitize both, the interior surface of the display and the product exposed, through a germicidal action effective up to 99% against harmful microorganisms such as viruses, molds, bacteria.

Tube is an appliance that performs an important preventive action against harmful microorganisms that can be deposited on the surfaces and on the packaging that are usually exposed to an high flow of customers and therefore with a potential risk of contamination.

Tube is a plug&play device with a minimal design, easy to install on any professional ventilated refrigerator. After fixing it inside the air supply duct and connecting it to the power supply, Tube will start working automatically sanitizing the internal surfaces of the display and of the products exposed.

How it works

Tube is made by a sheet metal plate fixed with screws or magnets, to the internal wall of the refrigerator in the air supply duct. The sheet metal contains the UVC lamp protected by a curved cover which is attached to the plate fixed to the wall.

All sheet metal parts are treated with an active substance that combined with the photocatalytic and oxidizing action of the UVC lamp produces OH hydroxyl radicals. These are then transported by the forced air circulation throughout the display and thanks to their very strong oxidizing power are able to inactivate viruses, moulds and bacteria that can be deposited on the internal surfaces of the refrigerator.

The effectiveness of Tube has been proven by tests carried out by an accredited laboratory according to UNI EN ISO CEI/IEC 17025:2005 regulation; specialized in microbiology activities, particularly in examining and monitoring hard surfaces and outdoor spaces, using biological sampler to determine the presence of microorganisms in indoor or outdoor environments.
