Coronavirus emergency – sanification and prevention
Rosalba Zagara

The criticality of this period related to the emergency by COVID-19 has brought to the fore the need of sanification indoor and outdoor environments by sterilizing and cleaning the surfaces to eliminate the virus.

Help from the mist-blower

Among the methods used for disinfection especially in outdoor environments, the mist-blower is the suitable tool for treatments even on large surfaces with the guarantee of an optimal intervention (in this picture distributed by Reuters agency our series 3 sprayer is disinfecting a school facility where a child was diagnosed with the coronavirus).

The mist-blower in fact performs a low volume treatment where the average size of the drops is 100/150 microns, the perfect size for a homogeneous coverage of the surfaces.

Coronavirus sanification

The products to be used to kill the virus and cancel its ability to infect people as recommended by the Ministry of Health and WHO are for example disinfectants containing 75% alcohol (ethanol) or 1% chlorine-based (bleach).

Our company produces two models of mist-blowers: M1200 and L3evo.

Both have a powerful 5 HP engine and distribute drops with an average diameter of 90 µm (M1200 model) and 120 µm (L3evo model).

The wide range of action of our mist-blowers (9/10 meters with 100% coverage) both horizontally and vertically, makes sanification operations faster.

The ULV system is an accessory for the mist-blower particularly suitable for city disinfection. It allows to perform ultra low volume treatments, with diameter of the drops further reduced (less than 70 µm), and to accurately distribute the liquid.

Prevention, today more than ever.

The importance of prevention by the whole community plays a fundamental role. How to protect yourself and others from Coronavirus?

We recall the basic rules:

Wash your hands frequently

Washing and disinfecting the hands is decisive in preventing infection. Wash accurately your hands with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, a 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizer can also be used.

Washing your hands kills viruses that may be on your hands.

Avoid close contact with people suffering from acute respiratory infections

Maintain at least 1 meter distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing, sneezing or have a fever. When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth

The virus is mainly transmitted by respiratory system but can enter your body through the eyes, nose and mouth, therefore avoid touching them with your hands not well washed.

In fact, hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses and transmit it to your body.

Practice respiratory hygiene

If you have an acute respiratory infection, avoid close contact with other people, cough inside the elbow or a disposable handkerchief, wears a mask and wash your hands. If you cover your mouth with your hands you could contaminate objects or people you come into contact with.

Clean the surfaces with chlorine or alcohol based disinfectants

Chemical disinfectants that can kill new coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) on surfaces include bleach / chlorine based disinfectants, solvents, 75% ethanol, peracetic acid and chloroform.
