SterilWand� For Portable Surface Decontamination

The SterilWand� packages Steril-Aire's multi-patented UVC technology in a versatile, hand-held device designed for decontamination of surfaces infested with mold, bacteria or viruses. The user slowly passes the device closely over the contaminated surface area, allowing the energy from the high output UVC Emitter� to decontaminate surfaces. An aluminum safety shield prevents direct exposure to UVC energy, while also adding reflectance that increases the light's effectiveness.

The SterilWand� may be used in any type of residential, commercial, industrial or institutional building to provide a fast-acting, portable method of decontaminating tabletops, walls and other surfaces.

Applications include residential and commercial mold remediation; food preparation, processing and yeast rooms; DNA laboratories (to prevent cross-contamination); hospitals; and libraries (to eradicate mold on book surfaces).


SterilWand Drawing The UVC Emitter� and fixture shall be factory assembled and tested. They shall consist of a housing, power source, reflector, safety shield, six-foot power cord, easy-to-grip handle, Emitter sockets and Emitter.

The housing shall be constructed of 304 stainless steel. The reflector shall be constructed of heavy gauge, specular finished aluminum alloy with approximately 85% reflectance at 254 nm wavelength. The safety shield shall be constructed with highly polished, heavy gauge aluminum to enhance the reflectance of the UVC energy. The six-foot power cord shall be UV-resistant. All components shall be in one integral assembly to maximize serviceability.

The power source shall be a Class P, electronic, rapid start type with a power factor greater than 0.95 and a power conversion of greater than 75%. The power supply design shall include RF and EMI suppression. The power supply shall be designed to maximize photon production, irradiance and reliability in cold or moving airstreams of 35-170� F, 100% RH and up to 2000 fpm velocity. The fixture shall be available in 115 Vac, 50/60 Hertz, single phase.

The Emitter sockets are medium bi-pin, double click safety, twist lock type. They shall be constructed of UVC-resistant polycarbonate.

The Emitter tube shall be a very high output, hot cathode, T5 diameter, medium bi-pin type that produces broadband UVC of 250-260 nm. Each tube shall produce the specified output at up to 2000 fpm velocity and air temperatures of 35-170� F. It shall produce no ozone or other secondary contaminants.

Independent testing: Unit shall be tested by an independent test laboratory in accordance with the general provisions of IES Lighting Handbook, 1981 Applications Volume, and shall be verified through independent testing to provide output per inch of glass of not less than 10 �W/cm2 at 1 meter in a 400 fpm airstream of 45� F.

Unit shall comply with UL Standard 153 for Portable Luminary Fixtures and shall carry the "UL" and "ULC" labels.
