Firm Introduces Sanitizing Equipment, Training

By Staff Writer January 19, 2021 184

Contagion Busters Inc., recently formed in response to the pandemic threat, now offers auto dealers and repair shops the equipment and training to sanitize in minutes the interior of an automobile.

The Contagion Busters process employs UV-C frequency light, the same light used in hospitals and EMT vehicles to sanitize operating rooms, patient rooms and ambulance bays. 

Sanitizing a vehicle with UV-C in a shop environment presents special challenges. The process must be effective and fast, even faster than an oil change. That requires the irradiating power of advanced medical equipment, a level far greater than consumer UV lights can deliver.

Contagion Busters technicians upgraded components of the industrial units to deliver UV-C frequency with the irradiating power of hospital UV-C systems—systems that usually require unmanned and robotic equipment to deliver the extended exposure time necessary to assure every corner of the space has been adequately irradiated. The Contagion Busters lamp, the most powerful hand-held unit made, can safely sanitize a vehicle interior in minutes. It can neutralize pathogens as far as eight feet from the light source and, because it is aimed by hand, a trained technician can focus on critical touch points and quickly navigate any cabin configuration.

James Stevens, president of Contagion Busters, said Contagion Busters UV-C sanitizing may be added to the service menu as a courtesy service or as a service option.
