Eliminating Biohazard Threats Through Facility and Equipment Biological Decontamination
Biohazards can lurk anywhere. Some sources are obvious: health care facilities, research laboratories, trauma and disaster scenes, animal remains and waste. Others areas such as locker rooms, food service prep areas and equipment, public transportation, hotels and schools are often overlooked.
ICT technicians decontaminate and disinfect manufacturing equipment.
Whether the situation is an emergency biohazard cleanup or managed maintenance, Infection Control Technologies’ decontamination and disinfection services mitigate biohazard threats from facilities and equipment. Infection Control Technologies delivers today’s most advanced tools and services to provide positive outcomes with any facility challenge.
For air and large surface decontamination with hard-to-reach areas, Infection Control Technologies utilizes SteraMist™ with patented Binary Ionization Technology (BIT®). The process applies cold plasma activation to a hydrogen peroxide-based solution to create a suite of anti-microbial actives, including Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS). Its fast-acting, broad-spectrum biological disinfection destroys micro-organisms (including spores) to a 6-Log reduction leaving no residue or noxious fumes. SteraMist™’s environmentally-friendly characteristics ensure safety for your employees and equipment while providing maximum biological log reduction for the environment you are treating.
Industrial cleaning of surfaces can be safely and effectively cleaned and decontaminated by Infection Control Technologies’ Dry Ice Blasting, also known as “CO2 Cleaning.” This cost-effective, non-abrasive, non-flammable, non-conductive, environmentally responsible technique turns dry ice into a supersonic protein remover. After vaporizing upon impact, there is no residual left behind. Dry ice cleaning can be applied to food processing equipment, kitchen equipment, material handling equipment, and other contaminated or soiled hard surfaces.
Dry Ice Blasting
“Dry Ice Blasting” uses compressed air to accelerate frozen carbon dioxide (CO2) “dry ice” pellets to a high velocity. A compressed air supply of 80 PSI/50 scfm can be used in this process. Dry ice pellets can be made on-site or supplied. Pellets are made from food grade carbon dioxide that has been specifically approved by the FDA, the EPA and the USDA.
