COVID19 situation

When the outbreak of the COVID19 happened in Europe, RealTime Technologies offered a new solution to help the fight against the spread of the coronavirus: Dry Fog disinfection.

Problems faced

  • Fast spreading of COVID19 contaminated cases
  • Lockdown of all public and private places
  • Manpower required to disinfect
  • Time consuming manual labor to disinfect
  • Exposure of employees to disinfectant liquid that could be harmful
  • With traditional cleaning method of disinfecting by wiping surfaces:

    • Cannot be used on sensitive objects like electronic devices that cannot get wet
    • Spatial disinfection is not possible

Why did RealTime Technologies choose IKEUCHI?

As already familiar with the benefits of the Dry Fog humidifier AKIMist® with successful installations in Czech and Slovakia against ESD, RealTime Technologies capitalized on the potential  of Dry Fog to efficiently disinfect public and private spaces.

As the Dry Fog sprays a homogeneous distribution of uniform-size small water droplets, it reaches every corner of a room to disinfect efficiently.

Thanks to the small droplets (on average 7.5 μm), Dry Fog disinfection doesn’t wet the surrounding objects or people. Therefore, it is suitable for any environment (industrial production plant, hospital, food production, office, IT rooms, laboratory, nursery, etc.).
