- UV Light Disinfection Tower
- Low cost, high UV output
- UV monitoring available
- 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.
- The TORCH contains eight high powered UVC lamps to provide quick disinfection times. It simply plugs into any standard wall outlet. The TORCH produces an efficient UVC output of 12 mJ/minute (200 μw/cm2) to get a calculated 99% reduction of MRSA in 10 seconds. A 99% reduction of spores like Clostridium difficile can be achieved in 5 minutes within a distance of 10 feet. A recent study shows that traditional UV systems such as the TORCH provide similar results as expensive Pulsed Xenon Ultraviolet Light Systems.
