The OR and other fixed mounted packages from American Ultraviolet consist of a variety of permanently mounted fixtures that can be retrofitted to an existing OR Suite or critical area. The systems are computer controlled, and designed to be utilized for entire room disinfection before and after gatherings or meetings in highly populated spaces; in between surgeries; and even during surgeries for various orthopedic procedures. The goal is to reduce pathogens on surfaces and in the air quickly and safely without the need for additional staff.
While the primary product in this series is the UVC OR package, the system was designed to be modular, meaning the components can be configured to achieve your disinfection goals in any space. Labs, isolation rooms, exam rooms, and meeting rooms are all places where a hard-mounted system makes sense.
It is important to note that UVC is an adjunct cleaning technology, and surfaces have to be free of dirt, dust and debris before UVC can be fully effective.
Each fixture plays an important role in maintaining the integrity of the room. We use a combination of direct and indirect fixtures to disinfect the air and surfaces.
Direct: Surface-Mounted fixtures: Applied for surface and air disinfection - proper level is set by the touch-screen controller; each fixture has a lamp intensity monitor and motion sensor; number of fixtures depend on size of room.
Indirect: Wall-Mounted upper air disinfection units: applied for upper air disinfection with a concentrated beam of energy creating a high intensity crisscross at the laminar flow discharge, enhancing the performance of the laminar flowsystem; includes a lamp intensity monitor and motion sensor; generally, 2 fixtures per room installed on adjacent walls.
Indirect: Door Barrier fixtures create a continuous "curtain" of UV energy at the entrance(s); include lamp intensity monitor and motion sensor. Available in 3-foot and 2-foot fixture lengths.
Touch Screen Controller (HMI): Provides constant communication with all of the fixtures providing automated daily cycle; operator selects either procedure or disinfection mode; complete data logging with maintenance reminders and internal diagnostic functions
"UV in Use" Safety Signs: Lighted signs when UV lamps are in use; available in single or double-sided, and ceiling or wall-mounted for increased visibility.
Wireless infra-red Radiometer: Measures UVC energy, and calibrates the system to ensure proper performance, establishing correct intensity level for use during procedures; communicates wirelessly with all of the fixtures in the space
Training: Includes full day training for all staff with three (3) forty minute sessions each; separate EVS, Infection Prevention, Maintenance, and Admin staff sessions; written Policy and Procedures
