Bridgeport Magnetics introduces ULTRASWEEP

Bridgeport Magnetics Group Inc. has introduced ULTRASWEEP Robot, a low-cost solution for UV-C ultraviolet surface disinfection. ULTRASWEEP is permanently installed in locations with a high risk of touch transferred infections. In addition to considerable cost savings on the robot itself, there is important labor savings as no need for specially trained, dedicated staff, eliminating complicated logistics to move and operate floor-based transportable systems, often around the clock.

Target areas include operating rooms, intensive care units, emergency departments, and other high-risk patient rooms. At a projected price of US $7,500.00 per room, the ULTRASWEEP Robot is an affordable solution also for smaller hospitals and surgical centers.

The ULTRASWEEP Robot is permanently installed in the ceiling of the room, suspended 7-8 ft. above the floor. During a sterilization cycle, the radiation source travels along a 10 ft. diameter circle. A cycle is performed in two full revolutions, first clockwise and then counterclockwise, returning to the starting point within 20 to 30 minutes. The UV-C emitters are mounted opposite the drive end and travel almost imperceptibly while covering surfaces with germicidal UV radiation from alternating directions. A hinged panel protecting the UV lamps, opens and closes automatically at the start and end of each cycle.

The cycle can be customized for any room sized 100 to 500 square feet by programming stops and dwell times at chosen angles for extended dosage of high touch areas, or at angles 0 and 180 degrees to cover an elongated room.
