Advanced Vapor Technologies (AVT) and Healthy Facilities Institute (HFI) Offer Buyers Guide to Steam Vapor Cleaning and Disinfecting Devices

EVERETT, WA--(Marketwired - Jun 26, 2017) - Advanced Vapor Technologies (AVT) and Healthy Facilities Institute (HFI) are pleased to offer a Buyer's Guide to Steam Vapor Cleaning and Disinfecting Devices.

"The guide provides clarity on industry-leading features to look for, plus outlines qualitative and quantitative differences between processes mistakenly called 'steam cleaning' -- and low moisture, low pressure, high temperature, dry steam vapor applications," said Rick Hoverson, principal of Advanced Vapor Technologies. 

"It has been a pleasure to work with AVT over the years and see their commitment to quality and efficacy data related to their patented TANCS® technology," said Allen Rathey, principal of Healthy Facilities Institute. "While we do not endorse products, we do support quality and performance, and in this regard, AVT is a clear leader in dry stream vapor (DSV) technology."

The guide includes information such as:

  • Defining what a steam vapor system is (and what it is not).
  • Low rate of water consumption of DSV compared to other methods.
  • Desired temperature and pressure range of DSV for greatest efficacy.
  • DSV applications and tool set for desired performance.
  • Advantages of steam vapor disinfection for rapid germ kill (seconds not minutes) and elimination of cross-contamination.
  • Advantages of DSV for reduced chemical purchase, use, and exposure.
  • Advantages of DSV for eliminating residue and odors.
  • Advantages of DSV for cleaning hard surfaces.
  • Advantages of DSV for cleaning and penetrating porous and textile surfaces.
  • Range of applications (restrooms, foodservice areas, classrooms, daycare, healthcare, more).
