Steril-Aire Press Release: New UVC Portable Unit Provides In-Room Decontamination
Burbank, Calif., February 2006 - A new mobile decontamination unit equipped
with multi-patented, high output UVC technology is now available from
Steril-Aire. Called the "Remedial In-Room Decontamination System (RIDS)", it
provides a safe and effective way to decontaminate surfaces infested with
mold (such as Stachybotrys and Aspergillus), viruses (e.g., colds, flu,
SARS, bird or avian flu and measles); and bacteria (including TB,
Legionella, E. coli, Listeria, Salmonella and whooping cough).
The user wheels the RIDS unit into the infested area, leaves the room and
turns on the unit remotely, allowing the energy from the high output UVC
Emitters(TM) to decontaminate walls, tabletops and other surfaces. A 12' x 12'
area can typically be decontaminated in approximately 24 hours. Multiple
RIDS units may be used to treat larger areas.
Steril-Aire UVC technology uses no chemicals, produces no ozone or other
toxic contaminants, and minimizes worker exposure during the decontamination
process. The high output UVC energy quickly kills or inactivates
microorganisms that contribute to poor IAQ and/or the spread of infectious
The portable RIDS unit is suitable for any type of residential, commercial,
industrial or institutional building. Applications include residential and
commercial surface mold remediation; food preparation and processing areas;
surface decontamination in hospitals and health care facilities; and surface
treatment in DNA laboratories to prevent cross-contamination.
