Bridgeport Magnetics’ Ultrasweep for UV-C surface disinfection
The Ultrasweep is a low-cost solution for UV-C ultraviolet surface disinfection. Permanently installed in locations with a high risk of touch transferred infections, Ultrasweep targets areas include operating rooms, intensive care units, emergency departments, and other high-risk patient rooms.
The Ultrasweep Robot is permanently installed in the ceiling of the room, suspended 7ft to 8ft above the floor. During a sterilization cycle, the radiation source travels along a 10ft diameter. A cycle is performed in two full revolutions, first clockwise and then counterclockwise, returning to the starting point within 20 minutes to 30 minutes. The UV-C emitters are mounted opposite the drive end, traveling almost imperceptibly while covering surfaces with germicidal UV radiation from alternating directions. A hinged panel protecting the UV lamps, opens automatically at the start and closes automatically at the end of each cycle. The cycle can be customized for any room sized 100ft2 to 500ft2 by programming stops and dwell times at chosen angles for extended dosage of high touch areas, or at angles 0 and 180° to cover an elongated room.
