COVID-19 pandemic reveals the secret to longevity by pivoting its focus to building PPE products to aid businesses in re-opening process.
C. Cretors and Company, the leading designer and manufacturer of food processing and concession equipment for 135 years, has just announced the launch of five new Covid-19 inspired products. Our patent pending UV-C Sanitizer Chamber with 360 degree rotating rack, a Mobile Floor Standing Shield, and three Universal Hand Sanitizing Stands are all designed to meet the immediate needs of business owners and operators as they prepare to reopen to the public after months of shut-down.
UV-C Sanitizing Chamber with Patent Pending 360 Degree Rotating Rack
The first 360 degree UV-C Sanitizing Chamber is hitting the market! This patent pending UV-C Sanitizing Chamber will sanitize a wide range of items covering 360 degrees within an impressive 1-5 minute cycle with UV-C Light (Germicidal 254nm). Great for shift changes, the chamber will quickly and safely disinfect items such as safety goggles, keys, phones, utensils, eye glasses, tablets; you name it, as long as it fits on the chamber’s carousel it will be sanitized. The patent pending rotating carousel rack is designed to hold various-sized items and expose all contact surfaces evenly to sanitizing rays as it turns inside the chamber. Five interior high-quality Philips 36-Watt UVC lights (Germicidal 254nm) with life expectancy of 8,500 hours assures even exposure of items to UV-C light. The unique digital display indicates when bulbs are near end of life (8,000 hours). At 8,500 hours, the machine will shut down until the bulbs are replaced and control is reset enforcing safety protocols. An internal fan and replaceable filter minimizes foul ozone odors generated by UV-C lights. Other features include 4 time settings with a LCD countdown display, display window to view sanitizing process, and safety switch that will shut off the lights if the door is opened before end of cycle. The cabinet is constructed of durable Stainless steel and is easy to clean. The unit plugs directly into any standard 15amp outlet. Ask about alternative racks options.
