Our idea was born from the simple fact of progress and technician / science research related to surface disinfection, which used to focus on the disinfectant products to be used, and however, there is little or nothing that covers the evolution of methods in application.
It is well known that effectiveness in disinfecting is not only conditioned by the nature of the disinfectant but also by the procedures used in the application of the disinfectant, as it was already verified by joseph Lister and Lucas Chanpionnière in the second half of the nineteenth century.
Nowadays, in spite of what was stated in such theories about the development of new methods for application, the scientific research regarding disinfection of surface continues being made through traditional manual practices that generally restrict their effectiveness to only those areas easy to reach such as the floor and little more.
it is obvious the fact that a treatment of a greater quality and extended to all the areas in the environment, if made through the traditional manual practices, would require long work schedules and real difficulty not only regarding operators’ will, but rather because of the inherent issues concerning the structural dimension of environment itself, the complexity of operations themselves, the reduced tight timing of intervention, and the difficulty to reach the most of areas by hand.
Such conditions involve that inside a sanitary environment the total surface treated is limited to around a 1/6 of that real present which leads to the consequential and short time of bacterial recontamination: it is evident that a surface or equipment not fully and effectively disinfected is a weak ring in the chain of decontamination and promotes the proliferation and spread of infection.
Our idea was born, therefore, from the need to follow the field already drawn from many innovators more than 100 years ago ,that focussed on the improvement in the application technology of the disinfectants in general in order to move from manual practices to a professional technological equipment, which allows to get the best results with less efforts and operating costs as it is already happening in all other sectors.
Therefore, the basic concept of our initial project was addressed to the search of a method for the distribution of a disinfectant in a simple, fast, efficient way and that could allow to extend the treatment to the 360 ° of the environment.
Our searchings have led us to believe that the best choice would be to associate the characteristics of steam, with that of being able to reach any surface, even those inaccessible, in synergy with a disinfectant.
Attempts to combine a disinfettante agent with steam, adding the disinfectant to water directly in boiler have shown alteration in the chemical agent, subject to direct and excessive exposure to heat, with the precipitation of disinfectant residue that is deposited together with limestone, compromising effectiveness irreparably.
The technical solution to such inconvinients has been the design, construction and patent pended production of a complex of mixing chamber that allows a uniform mixing of disinfectant agent and the vapour pressured and sprayed through an easy directional diffusor nozzle.
Thanks to such a technical innovation, steam, saturated with disinfectant particles, is applied on surfaces of any shape and material, creating a condensation "film", continuous and uniform ,that is "stuck" to surfaces, walls and to all items processed, reaching the best standard of decontamination of environment known today.
