Back to products

The TORCH Ultraviolet Light Disinfection System is a low cost, highly effective addition to your cleaning and disinfection program to reduce organisms and infections. Ultraviolet light is a proven method of reducing a wide range of pathogens on environmental surfaces. The TORCH is priced affordably, allowing facilities the opportunity to forego the usual "cost vs coverage" debate that other (more expensive) UV Disinfection systems mandate. The TORCH allows you to enjoy optimal UV-C coverage without sacrificing quality as the TORCH is made in the USA and built to last using high power and high efficiency bulbs and ballasts. the TORCH treats rooms quickly and safely, while allowing immediate re-entry to rooms following disinfection.

Affordability

  • The Torch is much less expensive compared to other high-powered UV systems without sacrificing efficacy, durability, or ease of use.
  • The Torch utilizes high-output bulbs that are not only affordable to replace, but long lasting with a rated lifespan of 16,000 hours.
  • The Torch has no required maintenance plan and is made with high quality parts and components
  • At an average cost of $0.08 per kWh, a 15 minute disinfection cycle would cost only $0.026

Effectiveness

  • Although affordable, the Torch still provides consistent and repeatable high-level disinfection
  • 99% or greater reduction of typical organisms in 1-2 minutes
  • The TORCH's UV-C bulbs are angled 4° to focus more UV-C power to the ceiling where traditional cleaning methods lack effectiveness.
  • the TORCH's open interior structure allows all 8 bulbs to each provide nearly 360° of coverage to maximize the TORCH's UV-C output

Safety

  • Four motion sensors prevent accidental UV-C exposure to personnel
  • Delayed start once START button pressed to allow time for personnel to exit room
  • Remote controlled cycle start to allow personnel to exit prior to pressing START
  • UV-C bulbs do not require hazardous disposal
  • No chemicals stored, handled, or introduced into room, making the room safe to enter immediately after exposure ends

User-friendly with an Intuitive Design

  • Easily operated with minimal training
  • No room preparation needed
  • No chemical handling or storage necessary

Torch Operations Video

The Torch is designed to supply high-level disinfection of all visible surfaces within a 10 ft radius. At 10 ft, the Torch outputs 12mJ/cm2 which is capable of providing a 99% reduction of MRSA in 1 minute. The Torch's 5ft long, angled bulbs are able to provide disinfection of short and tall objects, as well as the top and bottom surfaces of tables and other items.

Microorganism Distance Time (min) Percent Reduction
Staphylococcus aureus 10 feet 1 minutes >99%
Psuedomonas aeruginosa 10 feet 2 minutes >99%
Influenza spores 10 feet 1 minute >99%
Hepatitis A 10 feet 1 minutes >99%

A study was just published in the Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology journal evaluating the effectiveness of Pulsed Xenon UV systems against traditional, continuous UV systems. The study showed that Pulsed Xenon UV was not more effective than continuous UV-C in reducing pathogen recovery on glass slides. Click here to read the full article

Motion Sensors to Reduce Accidental Exposure

Each Torch has four motion sensors on it which abort the UV exposure when motion is detected. An emergency stop button is also located on the Torch. The system must be manually reset if the exposure is aborted by either the motion sensor or the emergency stop button. This prevents inadvertent restart of UV-C exposure as a further safety precaution.

Cycles Started Outside of Room

Once the Torch is setup within the room, it is turned on via a remote control from outside of the room. This allows for safer operation compared to other UV systems where the cycle is started from within the room. Those systems utilize a timer which starts the cycle a set amount of time after the start button is pressed. Accidental exposure can occur if personnel is unable to exit the room within that amount of time due to slips, falls, or distractions.

Optional UV Sensor

Our UV Sensor allows for the continuous monitoring of UV-C intensity during a disinfection cycle. The UV Sensor reads UV-C intensity and provides a cumulative UV-C dosage that is being exhibited at that distance. The room number can also be entered for documentation purposes. These values, along with the corresponding time and date stamp, are saved via USB drive so that the data file can be used for infection control and housekeeping logs. The Sensor Box can be located outside of the room being disinfected, while the Sensor itself is located at a specific distance or location to provide the UV-C dosage being delivered to that position.
