6 GERMICIDAL LAMPS


There are several methods to sterilize tubs and drying shelves between washings. Liquid products can be sprayed on surfaces but they hardly reach all station areas and have several drawbacks.

We opted for 36 W germicidal lamps, approximately 120 cm long with sealed lamp-holders, ceiling-mounted or hanging from chains over the tub and the drying shelf. Neon lamps with an emission peak of 253.7 nanometers have strong germicidal  effect against all microorganisms, including viruses. No resistant strains are created, since this is a physical process (direct radiation).

The entire lit area is sterilized.

 Lamps are switched on and off by a presence detector switching the lamps off should a person or pet be in the station. The following diagram shows the position of the 36 W lamps. Even a single correctly-placed lamp may be sufficient.
