860 MiniZapr UVC Sterilizer For Indoor Applications

Utilizing technology from the larger 850 GreenZapr outdoor sterilizer, the 860 MiniZapr UVC Sterilizer was designed.  The 860 MiniZapr UVC Sterilizer deploys the same bacteria and virus-fighting power needed to control today’s harmful microorganisms such as MRSA, Staph, C. diff, HIV, Influenza (H1N1). Germicidal UVC is a proven technology and has been used for more than 100 years.

Power options for the 860 MiniZapr UVC Sterilizer can be plugged into an ordinary wall outlet or powered by an optional generator. With its eight, proprietary, shatter-proof UVC bulbs are designed to emit the needed energy dosage to destroy the DNA of harmful microorganisms. The mobile 860 MiniZapr can indoor sterilizer has many applications. Locker rooms, wrestling mats, equipment rooms, weight rooms, and shower areas are a few areas the 860 MiniZapr can be used.

Target Levels of UVC Energy

Each harmful microorganism has a different level of sensitivity to UVC radiation. Some harmful microorganisms require only a small amount of UVGI to break apart their DNA. While other harmful microorganisms require more UVGI. In order to use UVGI to effectively sterilize surfaces, the operator must understand the exposure levels required. The intensity of the UVC light source, the distance from the light source to the target surface and the length of time required for optimum exposure.

Two Operational Methods of Use

The 860 MiniZapr UVC Sterilizer has two distinct modules: the base unit and the handheld. Using the base unit was designed to operate 2.5″ from the target surface and uses 8 specifically designed UVC lamps to generate 6,874 µJ/cm² of energy assuming a standard walking speed of 2 mph and 3 passes. The handheld module requires the operator to control all aspects of exposure such as speed, distance, and the number of passes. Assuming most users will use the handheld unit approximately 2” from the target surface, at a speed of 0.5 feet/s and in 2 passes, an energy dose of 7,350 µJ/cm² is reached.

In essence, greater exposure time delivers a higher dose of energy. However, the variables contributing to UVGI exposure dosage are as follows:

Operational Requirements

The operational requirements of this system are flexible and operators can adjust their protocols to meet their needs. Operators may optimize the UVGI treatment system and design a regular treatment schedule that effectively targets microbes of particular concern. For the optimum results in any setting, the operator should be aware that a slower, deliberate delivery method delivers significantly higher levels of exposure and more effective germicidal efficacy. Of course, a higher germicidal efficacy provides greater confidence for sterility and safety.
