Sanitizing & Disinfection

Steam as a sanitiser. Drawing on years of experience in the medical field, Polit launches the Steam Disinfector for making surfaces in the house healthy.

Act against HIV Type 1, hand, foot, mouth diseases (HFMD) and Avian Influenza (H1N1) including Mosquito and pest control.

Environment contaminated by germs can lead to:

  • Sneeze, cough, itchy eyes, running nose
  • Breathing difficulties and asthma
  • Allergies, rashes, itchy skin
  • Fever or flu

Home Sanitizing

Even if we keep our houses perfectly clean, bacteria, viruses and infectious agents can still get into our homes from when we go to public places, use public transportation, etc. Everyone knows that the hands can transmit viruses and bacteria. The contact of hands with contaminated surfaces and then with the eyes or nose can increase the outbreak of infections.

That's why sanitising surfaces and fabrics with Steam Disinfector means drastically limiting the risk of infection from contamination of surfaces and therefore PREVENTING INFECTIONS.

The Steam Disinfector completes the cleaning process by reducing the bacterial, fungal and viral load from surfaces.

Operating Principle

The Steam Disinfector has a controlled expansion Heat Exchange device when overheats steam generated in the Vaporetto or Vaporetto Lecoaspira boiler to a temperature up to 180C.

Only in this way does steam become "overheated dry saturated", containing no liquid particles and capable of sanitising.

In the lower part of the Steam Disinfector there is a connection for a bottle of HPMed sanitising solution, acting as an adjuvant in the sanitising action of steam.

The system lowers the bacterial, fungal and viral load on surfaces and fabrics to which it is applied, in just a few seconds. This allows you to drastically reduce the risk of infections.

The mixture of steam and HPMed can be released in the presence of people. HPMed has been subjected to skin tests.

The Advantages

  • EFFECTIVE It lowers the bacterial, fungal and viral load on any type of surface.
  • RAPID Spraying for 30 seconds per square meter is sufficient to eliminate the microbiological contamination from surfaces. The dry atomised steam evaporates within 30 to 45 seconds without leaving any residue behind.
  • SAFE The mixture of steam and HPMed can be released in the presence of people. In addition, it does not require any contact with the surfaces to be sanitised, and therefore eliminates any risk of cross contamination. HPMed has been subjected to skin tests.
  • TOTAL ACTION It reaches all surfaces, even in the most inaccessible corners that are difficult to reach with conventional methods.

Clinical Studies

  • EFFECTIVENESS AGAINST BACTERIA AND FUNGI The bacteria (Staphylococcus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Enterococcus hirae) and fungi (Aspergillus niger and Candida albicans) tested are responsible for various kinds of infection. They can be found frequently on household surfaces, in the filters of air-conditioning systems, in the drains of bathroom fixtures, on plants and even in water or in the soap. The results obtained show that the Steam Disinfector is capable in just one minute of entirely eliminating the bacterial and fungal loads on surfaces previously contaminated with these microorganisms. This result reached far beyond the minimum effectiveness threshold required according to the guidance set by the European standards.
  • EFFECTIVENESS AGAINST VIRUSES The Steam Disinfector has achieved excellent results against the flu viruses, reaching the lower limits required according to the appropriate standards following application for only 15 seconds.
  • EFFECTIVENESS AGAINST BED BUGS Steam Disinfector was also found to be extremely useful as a solution to the problem of bedbugs (Cimex Lectularius). The system turned out to be an effective solution for total eradication of the insects, and proved capable of eliminating adult insects, larvae and eggs, with great advantages over traditional pesticides.
  • EFFECTIVENESS AGAINST DUST MITES Cambridge University has found that Polti Steam eliminates 98% of dust mites from carpets and mattresses and cuts allergens by 86%. Lyons Dermatological Hospital has demonstrated that Polti Steam radically destroys scabies mites, one of the most resistant varieties, in only 5 seconds.
  • HPMED: EFFECTIVE AND SAFE The HPMed sanitising solution used with the Polti Sani System was subjected to strict in-depth laboratory tests in order to ensure that it is safe to use. Evaluation of acute inhalation toxicity: The results obtained have shown that HPMed does not result as classified according to the GHS (Globally Harmonised System) classification and labelling system, at the highest concentration that can be reached. Dermatological evaluation study: The results obtained with patch tests showed that HPMed, applied in non-occlusive conditions to the healthy skin of 20 volunteers caused an average irritation index of nil and did not therefore result as classified according to the GHS (Globally Harmonised System). HPMed has been subjected to skin tests and can be released together with steam in the presence of people.
