Evaluation of the virucidal effectiveness (SARS-CoV2) of dry steam
Laboratory Eurofins Biolab - Vimodrone (MI) – Italy

Considering that:

  • The SARS-CoV2 virus - according to the published information - has similar heat-sensitive properties to other Coronaviruses;
  • Thermosensitive viruses are completely deactivated in a few seconds at very high temperatures, for example from 150° to 160°C due to the heat and the deactivation speed for each log is minimal, quantifiable as about 0.1 seconds;
  • Coronaviruses are completely deactivated within one minute at 80°C from the heat generated by dry steam and the log inactivation speed is approximately 10 seconds;
  • The viral load of Coronavirus can be partially reduced within one minute at 65°C from the heat generated from dry steam;

It can be said that the steam treatment of Polti equipment must be considered effective in completely deactivating the SARS-CoV2 virus at a temperature of 80°C or higher.

Polti Moppy: discover the range

*Polti Moppy has been tested on the most common bacteria such as Escherichia coli, Enterococcus faecalis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella enterica, Aspergillus brasiliensis. It removes 99.9% of viruses, germs and bacteria from surfaces with just one pass and retains them; also eliminates 99.9% of viruses, germs and bacteria from the cloth during vaporisation on the charging base.
