Raslysation™ is a non-thermal processing technology for liquids. With the use of raslysation (UV) instead of heat, the reduction of water and energy related to liquid processing is drastically reduced, hence making raslysation a sustainable and energy-efficient replacement for conventional pasteurization.
Being the first of its kind, the patented raslysation technology uses low-pressure germicidal UV lamps to generate disinfectant light and has integrated light filters, which remove unnecessary wavelengths that could otherwise compromise product quality.
The light filter only allows for the desired wavelengths to pass through, and these inactivate spores and bacteria at a level superior to conventional pasteurization. In addition, the unique design creates a turbulent flow that exposes the entire volume of the liquid. You will therefore be able to treat liquids regardless of transparency.
Raslysation vs. pasteurization
Traditional pasteurization processes heat milk up to about 74 degrees Celsius for at least 15 seconds before it is then rapidly cooled. Both temperature shifts require significant energy and water resources. To eliminate waste and expedite the overall pasteurization process without reducing quality, raslysation was based on UV light, a reliable and less resource-intensive method that has been used to eliminate bacteria, spores, viruses, and other microorganisms in drinking water for more than 100 years.
