Mobile UV Room Sterilizer MRS3684P - 24 hour timer, casters, and handle
(20"L x 20"W x 48"H)
These mobile ultraviolet units utilize eight UV lamps and are designed for operating rooms, sterile areas, laboratories, unoccupied patient rooms, clean rooms and all other applications where permanent
UV fixtures are not practical. Each mobile UV unit is equipped with casters for maximum portability.
Why it is important to disinfect surfaces with germicidal UV
1. Bacteria, including VRE, MRSA, TB, C.diff and Streptococcus,
and viruses can survive for months on dry surfaces.
2. These pathogens are frequently found in patients with nosocomial
3. In hospital environments, surfaces with which hands come in
contact are often contaminated with nosocomial pathogens, and may serve as
vectors for cross-transmission.
4. Contaminated hands can transfer germs to five more surfaces or
14 other subjects and can also recontaminate a clean surface.
5. There is overwhelming evidence for low compliance of healthcare
workers with hand hygiene (about 50%), therefore all contaminated surfaces
must be properly cleaned and disinfected.
Mobile UV Sterilizers Installation Instructions:
The mobile UV sterilizer is shipped assembled and wired for 120Volt, 60Hz operation. The only procedure necessary is installation of the eight 4-pin GML100 germicidal
To install the UV lamps remove the top thumb screw and slide lamps into 4-pin connector. Use gloves when touching the
glass portion of UV lamps. If fingerprints get on the lamp, clean the lamp with denatured alcohol prior to operation.
Mobile UV Sterilizers MRS3684P General Operation:
1. Position unit in center of area to be exposed to germicidal UV
2. Plug unit into 120V, 60Hz outlet
3. Set 24-hour timer for desired UV exposure time
4. Push “On” button - 2 minute delay switch
5. Leave area or put on UV protective glasses. Avoid exposure to direct or reflected UV light
6. Check and clean UV lamps regularly - annual lamp replacement required if used continuously - 12,000 hours rated life.
Fomites and Infection Transmission
German researchers found that viruses and bacteria, including VRE, MRSA, TB, C.diff and
Streptococcus can survive for months on dry surfaces. These pathogens are frequently found in patients with nosocomial infections. In
the hospital environment, surfaces with which hands come in contact are often
contaminated with nosocomial pathogens, and may serve as vectors for
cross-transmission. Contaminated hands can transfer germs to five more
surfaces or 14 other subjects and can also be the source of recontaminating
"Compliance rates of healthcare workers in
hand hygiene are known to be around 50%. Due to the overwhelming evidence of low
compliance with hand hygiene, the risk from contaminated surfaces cannot be
overlooked.” said the researchers.
