ATS ELGi, India’s leading garage equipment manufacturer and distributor, a global supplier of compressed air solutions, today announced the launch of its new range of vehicle sterilization solutions. The Ozone Air Sterilizer, uses ozone (a natural form of activated oxygen) to eliminate bacteria, virus, moulds, allergens, odours and harmful pollutants like volatile organic compounds (VOCs) ensuring a safe and clean in-vehicle environment for small passenger cars, sedans, SUV’s, commercial vehicles- SCV/LCV/HCV driver cabins and even ambulances.
While the lockdowns recede and people begin the transition to their daily work schedules, the general perception points to people assuming that there is a low risk of contamination in a car or vehicle due to enclosed spaces. However studies reveal that a four-wheeler is a bigger fomite, i.e. more likely to carry infection. Vehicle interiors comprising of several high- touch surfaces, AC units, and even the low- contact parts such as the headliner, headrest, and window glasses must be sanitized to ensure the vehicle is free from pollutants.
The team at ATS ELGi offers the Ozone Air Sterilizer as an easy-to-use machine; compact, portable and requiring zero maintenance and consumables.
Disinfecting a mid-size car or a commercial vehicle cabin ranging from SCV, LCV to HCV is possible in approximately 10 minutes, while an SUV or a van would complete the process in 20 minutes. The ozone air sterilizer uses 12V DC current via the vehicle battery to transform natural air or normal O2 molecules into ozone or O3 molecules, thereby nullifying the need for additional chemicals or disinfectants which might be harmful or leave behind a residue.
