The main function of the SteriTouch Antimicrobial Coating on Apreco VARI-centric® Air Pressure Stabilisers is to offer protection against a range of bacteria including e.coli, MRSA, Salmonella and Legionella, as well as black mould growth biofilm and fungi. SteriTouch eradicates the bacteria which causes contamination and infection. Its purpose is not to create a sterile environment but to act as a complementary measure to routine cleaning.
Independent performance tests carried out for Apreco have proven that SteriTouch® powder coated VARI-centric® Air Pressure Stabilisers reduce E.coli and MRSA organisms by 99.999% within a 24 hour duration.
Historically brushed Hair Line Stainless Steel has been the material of choice in the healthcare sector, however antimicrobial claims cannot be made for this material.
The brushed surface finish on Stainless Steel also acts as a safe haven for bacteria allowing it to survive and thrive even after routine cleaning.
In Independent tests carried out for Apreco have proven E.coli organisms increased by 39% over a 24 hour period on Stainless Steel sample while the same size sample from a SteriTouch® powder coated VARI-centric® Air Pressure Stabiliser saw a reduce in E.coli organisms by 99.999%
ecoHVAC now represent Aercon – Air Pressure Stabilisers
The guarantee of clean filtered air is essential in many hospital and clean room environments.
The standard technique used to achieve this is to supply treated air into the clean room and maintain a positive differential pressure between this room and adjacent rooms or corridors.
Aercon, a division of the Power Utilities Group, manufacture a range of air pressure stabilisers designed and engineered to facilitate the application of differential air pressure control within hospital operating theatres, aseptic suites, pharmacies, clean room and similar environments.
Aercon, a division of the Power Utilities Group, has over 50 years of experience in the design and manufacture of Air Pressure Control Valves and Air Pressure Stabilisers.
Aercon design and manufacture Air Pressure Control Valves and Air Pressure Stabilisers that are used in in hospitals, operating theatres, clean rooms, for gas fire supression and protected fire routes as well as many other industrial applications. Aercon Air Pressure Control Valves and Air Pressure Stabilisers are used throughout the world.
