Home for elderly people in Hrastnik also uses the UVCabinet disinfection device for regular disinfection of visors, which are used in the gray and red zones.
The disinfection itself has been carried out by soaking in a disinfectant and drying the visors for several days, which has prevented regular use. By using the UVCabinet disinfection device, the disinfection time was reduced to 10 minutes, as long as the surface disinfection cycle lasts.
During reuse also material wear is very important, as the materials were much more damaged in the disinfectant than when using our device. (Experts recommend reusing suitable protective equipment up to five times, but if there are no signs of wear or lack thereof, could be reused even more.)
An additional advantage of the UVCabinet disinfection device is the disinfection of other objects. Home for elderly people in Hrastnik has established a protocol for disinfecting incoming mail, objects brought by relatives to protégés, and, for example, tools and accessories used in the red zone and impossible to wipe. With the use of liquid disinfectants, materials and tools also rust too quickly.
The disinfection process takes place with the help of UVC radiation and ozone, which circulates through the device and thus reaches hidden places as well. During the microbiological testing of the device, we found that after only 120 seconds of operation, 99.99% destroy all living organisms in the device, and by extending it to eight minutes, the reliability of disinfection is even much higher. After disinfection, however, ozone is degraded back to oxygen by a catalyst, so there is no inhalation of ozone when the device is opened.
The disinfection device itself is spacious enough to disinfect larger items such as clothes or larger devices, or it can be used with the help of several shelves for disinfection smaller items such as phones, headphones, remotes, books, newspapers, tools, toys, accessories, and more.
