Oxford, UK; May 1st 2020: A hand-held sanitiser using ultra-violet light to inactivate biomolecules and micro-organisms including Coronavirus Covid-19 has been developed by Oxfordshire manufacturer, Integration Technology Ltd.

A high-power portable UVC rapid sanitiser, the compact, lightweight SubZero RS-170 is designed 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.

Integration Technology specialises in making UV light curing systems for the print industry.

“We had just started work on making portable versions of our products for use in markets other than just print,” says managing director, Simon Roberts.  “When the rate of spread of Coronavirus Covid-19 became clear, priority was immediately given to developing a medical application in a bid to help beat back the virus.”

UV is non-contact and allows widespread coverage so you get greater and faster overall decontamination,” he adds.

Easy to use and maintain, the 285 x 85 x 142mm, 3kg air-cooled unit can be plugged into a standard electrical wall socket, offers rapid warm-up and cool-down, and comes with quick-change lamp cassette for reduced downtime on site.

The RS-170 offers high output 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 results.

The RS-170 draws on a proven technology in Integration Technology’s SubZero Series UV lamp technology, introduced to the print industry sector by the company in 2005.
