Polti Steam vs
Covid-19

“Of all the methods available for sterilization,
moist heat in the form of saturated steam
under pressure is the most widely used and the
most dependable.”

The Effectiveness Test

Evaluation of the virucidal effectiveness (SARS-CoV2) of dry steam

Laboratory Eurofins Biolab - Vimodrone (MI) – Italy
Considering that:
  • The SARS-CoV2 virus - according to the published information - has similar heat-sensitive properties to other Coronaviruses;
  • Thermosensitive viruses are completely deactivated in a few seconds at very high temperatures, for example from 302°F to 320°F due to the heat and the deactivation speed for each log is minimal, quantifiable as about 0.1 seconds;
  • Coronaviruses are completely deactivated within one minute at 176°F from the heat generated by dry steam and the log inactivation speed is approximately 10 seconds;
  • The viral load of Coronavirus can be partially reduced within one minute at 149°F from the heat generated from dry steam;

It can be said that the steam treatment of Polti equipment must be considered effective in completely deactivating the SARS-CoV2 virus at a temperature of 176°F or higher. With the very high temperatures reached by Polti Cimex Eradicator, deactivation is effective in very short exposure times (a few seconds).

Superheated chamber patented technology

The patented SUPERHEATED CHAMBER technology inside the dispenser generates saturated, superheated, dry steam reaching a temperature of 356°F capable of reducing the microbial load of surfaces by 99.9%.

SUPERHEATED DRY SATURATED STEAM - UP TO 356° F:

  • Covers the surfaces in the form of a cloud;
  • Almost completely free of liquid particles;
  • Dries quickly;
  • No direct contact with surfaces;
  • Relies only on the power of heat;
  • Can be used in the presence of people.
