SteriSpace™ Shows Great Results in Test With Isolation Shelter

December 13, 2018

SteriSpace™ unit successfully passed a validation test recently held in Alabama. The SteriSpace engineering team travelled with the unit to the test site where the unit was installed on an isolation shelter. The testing was completed in collaboration with one of our partners who supplies emergency shelters for defense applications. The 250 CFM unit has undergone evaluation for temperature and air exchange capabilities required for these purposes. 

The “pre-production” air sterilizer prototype was delivered to our collaborator for formal production evaluation prior to implementing the SteriSpace into their existing expeditionary shelter product. Overall, the SteriSpace system performed well and the test objectives were satisfied. The system met the collaborators’ main objectives to provide the required air flow rate and sterilization temperature requirements.
