The importance of disinfection in hospitals has increased considerably – and not just because of the current coronavirus pandemic. Conventional disinfection methods, such as manual disinfection, only solve the problem rudimentarily. Often, they even produce more resistant germs. UV-C robots can help out: reliable, with state-of-the-art technology and high efficiency – and an optimal price-performance ratio.
Whether in operating rooms, intensive care units or other highly sensitive areas of hospitals: The HERO21 provides the highest level of disinfection and thus offers optimum protection. After the initial disinfection of contaminated rooms, even the cleaning staff who normally work at the frontline are exposed to a much lower risk of infection.
The HERO21 moves completely autonomously through the rooms that need to be disinfected. If the robot is switched on, it can be moved to the contaminated rooms via an app on a mobile device so that the person navigating the robot does not need to enter the room themselves. The HERO21 scans all room data and saves it. Its special sensor technology detects whether there still is a person in the room. In this case, the robot would not activate itself but send a hazard alarm to the mobile device. Even during the disinfection process, its sensors detect, for example, when a person opens the door – and switch off the UV-C light.
No standard tubes were used for the HERO21, but specially produced UV-C lamps, which were assessed in an efficiency test against six conventional lamps in the laboratory and have an extremely long service life. The HERO21 achieves a level of disinfection of 99.99 % with a 360° coverage. In addition, the HERO21 has a very long operating time: After a short preheating phase, it disinfects for up to 3.5 hours straight. This capacity corresponds to about 14 rooms (25 m² in 5-10 minutes). The HERO21 is available again after only four hours of charging. All analyses are carried out in a certified BSL-1 laboratory.
