EVERETT, WA — Advanced Vapor Technologies (AVT) has announced that steam vapor sanitation devices equipped with Thermo Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation (TANCS) come standard with patented technology that disinfects faster than traditional methods, according to a press release.
"The patent includes broad claims to novel methods and systems and their use in disinfecting or sterilizing a surface, an object or an environment with a special treated water steam," said Walter J. Bauer, president of Bauer Energy Design Inc.
The patented technology now featured in all AVT TANCS-equipped steam vapor sanitation devices includes claims to an enhanced type of steam vapor that can effectively kill a broad range of microorganisms within three to five seconds, reduce surface-mediated infection risks and serve as a green, more effective alternative to chemical disinfectants, the release stated.
According to the release, results achieved in disinfecting contaminated hard surfaces with this novel steam vapor system with TANCS, and protected by the U.S. patent, were peer reviewed and published in the scientific American Journal of Infection Control.
The following chart shows typical comparative results between TANCS steam vapor and other common chemical disinfection methods:
