  • Publication number: 20080286146
    Abstract: A cooling apparatus with a cooling space which is especially suited for storing perishable foods is given. In the cooling apparatus there is a UV radiation source which is suited to emitting electromagnetic radiation from the ultraviolet region, and in its operation the cooling space is irradiated with this radiation. Via the electromagnetic radiation it is fundamentally possible to kill microorganisms such as bacteria and molds and thus to disinfect the refrigerator and the free surfaces contained in the cooling space as well as the air of the cooling space.
