UV curing innovator Integration Technology Ltd has introduced a high-power portable hand-held UVC rapid sanitiser to its newly-launched Portable-UV range.
Designed to inactivate biomolecules and micro-organisms including the elimination of Coronavirus, the ultra-compact, lightweight SubZeroRS-170 is for use on all surfaces in applications posing a high risk of public cross contamination.
Target applications include ambulances and blue light services, buses, aircraft and cruise ship cabins, train carriages, and other public transport, and hospitals, schools, offices, and hotel rooms.
"We had just started work on making portable versions of our products for industrial applications," says managing director, Simon Roberts.
"When the rate of spread of the Coronavirus became clear, priority was immediately given to developing a medical application in a bid to help beat back the virus."
The SubZeroRS-170 is the latest product in the Portable-UV programme from Integration Technology and follows the 2019 launch of the AC-850 series of portable hand-held high powered LED units for curing fillers, primers and coatings.
Easy to use and maintain, the 285 x 85 x 142mm, 3kg kg air-cooled unit can be plugged into a standard electrical wall socket, offers rapid warm-up and cool-down and comes with a quick-change lamp cassette for reduced downtime on site.
The RS-170 offers a 1700W input power with a high intensity reflector system. Four times more powerful than competing solutions means it significantly reduces the UV exposure time required to achieve the same virus elimination results. Its widespread illumination capability also achieves greater overall decontamination rates, faster.
The RS-170 draws on proven technology from Integration Technology's SubZero Series UV lamp technology, introduced to the print industry sector by the company in 2005.
