Ultraviolet Disinfection





Ultraviolet Light Disinfection is a low cost, highly effective addition to your cleaning and disinfection program to reduce organisms and infections in addition to being a proven method of reducing a wide range of pathogens on environmental surfaces. Due to its affordability, UV disinfection allows facilities the opportunity to forego the usual "cost vs coverage" debate that other (more expensive) disinfection systems mandate.


THE TORCH




The TORCH Tower is an inexpensive, easily transportable, powerful disinfection system designed for use in any healthcare, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, laboratory, or research setting. It is used to provide a rapid and highly effective method to disinfect surfaces, components, room surfaces and common touch points to reduce the transfer of dangerous organisms. It also offers a way to disinfect components without removing them from the room, which helps minimize the chance for cross-contamination.

Containing eight high powered UVC lamps the TORCH system provides quick disinfection times providing efficent per-room disenfection times. It simply plugs into any standard wall outlet. Each TORCH tower produces an efficient UVC output of 12 mJ/minute (200 μw/cm2) to get a calculated 99% reduction of MRSA in 10 seconds and Cl ostridium difficile in 1 minute at 10 feet. A recent study shows that traditional UV systems such as the TORCH provide similar results as expensive Pulsed Xenon Ultraviolet Light Systems. Click here to read the full study

The TORCH system is designed to be so economical that multiple units are affordable enough to place into a room at the same time to eliminate shadow areas and maximize coverage for the most thorough disinfection process.


Safety and standard features





• Motion Sensors to Reduce Accidental Exposure
Each Torch has four motion sensors on it which abort the UV exposure when motion is detected. An emergency stop button is also located on the Torch. The system must be manually reset if the exposure is aborted by either the motion sensor or the emergency stop button. This prevents inadvertent restart of UV-C exposure as a further safety precaution.

• Cycles Started Outside of Room
Once the Torch is setup within the room, it is turned on via a remote control from outside of the room. This allows for safer operation compared to other UV systems where the cycle is started from within the room. Those systems utilize a timer which starts the cycle a set amount of time after the start button is pressed. Accidental exposure can occur if personnel is unable to exit the room within that amount of time due to slips, falls, or distractions.
 


Decontamination as a service

In addition to providing the torch system as a product, BioSafety also provides an at convenience, UV decontamination service. We will come to you to deliver routine or one off UV decontamination of rooms, hallways and equipment. The final stage of our service comes in the form of a written report which will provide data on exposure and kill times for each cycle, with the option for biological validation also avalible.


Ensuring disinfection




Our UV Sensor allows for the continuous monitoring of UV-C intensity during a disinfection cycle. The UV Sensor reads UV-C intensity and provides a cumulative UV-C dosage that is being exhibited at that distance. The room number can also be entered for documentation purposes. These values, along with the corresponding time and date stamp, are saved via USB drive so that the data file can be used for infection control and housekeeping logs. The Sensor Box can be located outside of the room being disinfected, while the Sensor itself is located at a specific distance or location to provide the UV-C dosage being delivered to that position.
