New Hand-Held UVC 'Wand' Eradicates Mold, Bacteria and Other Surface Contaminants
Cerritos, Calif., December 2003 - Steril-Aire, Inc. has introduced a hand-held "SterilWand(TM)" that uses the company's multi-patented UVC technology for decontamination of surfaces infested with mold, bacteria or viruses.
The user slowly passes the hand-held device closely over the contaminated surface area, allowing the energy from the 30"-long, high output UVC Emitter(TM) to decontaminate surfaces. An aluminum safety shield prevents direct exposure to UVC energy, while also adding reflectance that increases the light's effectiveness.
The SterilWand may be used in any type of residential, commercial, industrial or institutional building to provide a fast-acting, portable method of decontaminating tabletops, walls and other surfaces. The most common applications include laboratories, hospitals, food and beverage processing areas, schools, libraries and homes. The device is suitable for a variety of specialized uses, e.g.:
Residential and commercial mold remediation (as a supplement to other control strategies)
Food preparation and processing and yeast rooms to reduce contamination
DNA laboratories to prevent cross-contamination.
Surface decontamination in hospitals.
Libraries, to eradicate mold on book surfaces.
In addition to the portable SterilWand, Steril-Aire offers a complete line of installed UVC devices to decontaminate air conditioning coils, ductwork and other HVAC components. The company is the leader in UVC technology because its devices offer greatly increased output in all conditions including cold and/or moving air environments - providing superior germicidal performance, longer life, and optimal maintenance and energy savings.
