UV Solutions for Reducing the Spread of COVID-19

As restaurants continue to tackle new measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 among its staff and customers, operators are looking for any innovative solutions that show a significant impact on reducing the spread of the virus

What if you had a mobile piece of equipment that would utilize UV rays to eliminate any potential exposure and eliminate the virus? The Halton UVGI (Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation) Stand-Alone Mobile Filtration unit is specifically designed to do just that for commercial kitchens.


With Halton's UVGI-SA, ultraviolet germicidal irradiation is used to remove any virus, including COVID-19 from the surfaces and atmosphere within your kitchen. Like air humidifiers, this mobile filter unit captures the air coming into the environment and filters it through the UV rays tucked away safely in the filter, eliminating traces of COVID-19 before releasing the air back into the atmosphere. Since the COVID-19 is an airborne virus, it is essential to filter the area within the kitchen. This filter is reducing the spread of the virus immensely, allowing your staff and customers to continue working and dining in safe conditions.

Because ultraviolet rays have been proven to eliminate the virus, it is one of the best methods to safely remove the virus without having to consistently clean and expose working areas by spraying chemicals into the air constantly. By simply placing the mobile unit in the areas that have the highest risk of exposure, the unit can capture the virus early and stop it before it lands on various surfaces. While some of these chemical sprays have been given the green light by the FDA, they are not always ideal in a commercial kitchen due to the nature of the work and the various foods that could be exposed. 


Being able to properly clean and sanitize each part of a commercial kitchen has always been a tricky task, even before the COVID-19 pandemic. Since there are wheels on the Halton UVGA-SA, it can be easily transported to different areas of the kitchen for radiating germs from surfaces and equipment. Because some equipment cannot be moved or cannot be moved easily, this is essential to provide this same application from one end of the kitchen to the other. 

The unit requires a 120/1 outlet for operation. It is also equipped with a safety device to protect risky exposure to ultraviolet rays to staff members and guests. Allow it to travel to the prep station in the early hours and then later transfer it to the expediting area where the dining and kitchen staff meet for dishes.


Designed with both stainless-steel and aluminum, it is a long-term investment that will maintain its performance and quality for many years. Halton's UVGI-SA mobile filter unit can be operated 24/7. This makes it a more efficient way to clean and eradicate viral pathogens lurking in the kitchen. Using this mobile unit will reduce some of the additional amounts of chemicals needed, which poses a risk of exposure to your dishes. 

Even after the COVID-19 pandemic subsides, this mobile unit will continue to be efficient to remove viruses as they develop and continue to maintain a safe environment for both customers and staff who are working on the front lines risking daily exposure.
