The design and management of food processing facilities is a highly regulated industry. Because of the obvious sanitation management requirements, there are numerous oversight groups (including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, U.S. Department of Agriculture, and a number of other government agencies) involved in the construction and operation of this type of environment. And, for this reason, overhead lighting in food processing factories must offer the highest level of reliability and performance. US Lighting Tech understands these nuances. Our energy efficient, low maintenance Ridgeline Highbay Series and Diamond Wallpack induction lights are designed for indoor warehouse and facility use and offer the ideal solution for food product manufacturers.
Quality Control Support
It is absolutely essential for food processing plants to have proper, bright lighting to ensure the quality of food production. To optimize food safety, plant workers must have crystal clear viewing of the assembly line and food preparation areas. USLT induction’s high color rendering (80+ CRI) is the preferable choice for an indoor warehouse environment. Our products deliver a more warm and non-glaring light when compared to LED. They also offer a crisp white light that is highly desirable for quality control assurance, plus induction lights reduce the glare that can cause assembly line/materials handling mishaps and employee eye fatigue.
Because USLT induction offers the industry’s longest rated life of 100,000 hours, food processing facility managers don’t need to worry about frequent lamp replacements. Food production facilities typically have high, hard to reach ceilings. Any technical or engineering work that must be conducted above food assembly lines or materials handling areas requires a line shutdown. Because USLT induction requires little to no maintenance and typically lasts for more than a decade, it is the clear lighting choice for food handling and production facilities. Additionally, USLT induction delivers a greater energy efficiency and higher return on investment (ROI) than any other commercial grade lighting technology on the market today.
What does this all mean for your food processing warehouse lighting needs? USLT induction will save your operation the headache of challenging and frequent overhead lamp replacements – making induction the most sanitary solution for a food handling environment. Our products will also save up to 60% in energy costs and 80% in maintenance costs compared to older, and even contemporary, technologies. In this turbulent economy, that’s a competitive advantage that the food and agri-business industries simply can’t afford to ignore.
