Since 1993 JIMCO has specialized in the reduction of grease, odour, and aromatic compounds in exhaust air with high temperatures (frying, boiling and deep-frying processes) through the development of the unique UV-C & Ozone technology. This technology eliminates several environmental hazards generated by industrial and commercial processes.
The JIMCO industrial air cleaning system are based on the unique technology – photolytic oxidation.
The process of odour reduction and air treatment will be made by the application of the technology called Photolytic Oxidation Process, which uses a combination of ultraviolet radiation C and ozone.
Photolysis is a process in which UV-C radiation enables photon degradation of organic particles (e.g. fat and oil). Ozonolysis is an oxidation process in which organic particles are decomposed by ozone through a cold combustion. Ozone (produced by the lamps) is an unstable natural gas found in nature and helps to sterilize the earth's surface.
With the JIMCO Photolytic Oxidation Process alone you will reach a reduction percent at +75 %.
If higher reduction than above is required, a catalyst with activated carbon must be considered. With that combination you will reach a reduction percent at +95 %.
It can therefore be said that UV-C light breaks down the organic particles, making it easier for the ozone to decompose them. UV-C light breaks down the organic particles, making it easier for the ozone to break them down.
