COVID-19 can be eliminated with extended high-temperature exposure

The CDC, World Health Organization, and other health authorities, have emphasized that both washing one's hands and cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces daily are key in preventing COVID-19's spread. Coronaviruses can be inactivated within a minute by disinfecting surfaces with 62-71% alcohol, or 0.5% hydrogen peroxide bleach or household bleach containing 0.1% sodium hypochlorite. In some cases, however, reaching those areas where airborne particles are found can be difficult using disinfectants, and can be labor intensive to clean a vehicle and then sanitize it after every person touches common surfaces. Unclean surfaces can harbor germs from the sanitizer or disinfectant making it application ineffective. 
Research has shown that high temperatures also eliminate traces of coronaviruses quicker. Studies show that Coronavirus, along with many other viruses, can be 99% killed by extended exposure to temperatures above 56°C or 132°F at a rate of 10,000 viral particles every 15 minutes.
What it means for your fleet
Fleet vehicles are a particularly precarious challenge containing plenty of metal and plastic components allowing viruses to remain for several days and reaching every possible area where the virus can live, and therefore, using extreme heat is an exceptional alternative to cleaning.  The benefits of using heat instead of sanitizers is that you can reach areas that are difficult with normal cleaning practices and there are no harmful chemicals that may be ingested, cause skin irritation, or damage the vehicle's components.
Why it matters

Safer, healthier work environments for staff & passengers

Steril-Therm is a safer, simpler, and more cost-effective way to sanitize vehicles to help slow the spread of COVID-19, and rid your vehicles and equipment of germs and bacteria associated with common colds, flu, and other illnesses.

How it works

Quick & simple vehicle sterilization

Steril-Therm is a contactless vehicle sterilization system that works by safely sanitizing vehicle with external heat.

Save time

Steril-Therm uses a powerful fuel-fired air heater ducted to the vehicle's window and runs through a rapid sanitization cycle that works in just minutes -- not hours.

Sterilize thoroughly

Steril-Therm rapidly heats and sanitizes each vehicle using a temperature sensor and control system to guarantee sterilization, and penetrates those hard-to-reach areas where germs would normally linger after cleaning the vehicle using traditional methods.

Safer on vehicle components

Steril-Therm is the perfect alternative to using bleach and other harsh chemicals, which damage leather and fabric. Even items left in the cab are safe during the Steril-Therm cycle, so you can leave miscellaneous items inside that also need to be sterilized.

Contactless cleaning

Traditional cleaning methods put you and your employees at risk. No special staff is needed to implement the Steril-Therm system, and existing staff members are not put at unnecessary risk.

Go beyond sterilization

When you invest in Steril-Therm for the safety and well-being of your fleet operators, you're also investing in the sustainability of our environment. As part of our Steril-Therm development, we've vowed to plant 100 trees for every Steril-Therm purchased.

Have a question? We have answers.

Can the vehicle's interior handle such high temperatures?
Yes, the interior temperature of a vehicle on a fully sunny day (35°C (95°F)) can reach well over 56°C (132°F).
How long does it take to sterilize the vehicle?
The time to sterilize the vehicle is dependent on the ambient temperature and the vehicle size. For a typical single cab vehicle at 15°C (59°F) it takes approximately 30 minutes.
How do I know the vehicle is sterilized?
The system runs through a "Warm Up" cycle to first reach the desired temperature of 56°C (132°F) and once it does, it goes into Sterilization Mode which maintains that temperature for at least 15 minutes. After completed the system includes an audible alarm to tell you that the sterilization mode has been completed.  
How does the system sterilize without the use of chemicals?
The system uses extreme heat for a consistent amount of time which kills the virus. Various studies have been proven that if the temperature Is maintained above 56°C (132°F) for 15 minutes, 99% of the virus will die.
How much fuel does the system use?
The system will consume approximately 1 litre of fuel per hour of operation.
How is the system ducted into the vehicle?
The system has a uniquely deigned duct that attaches to the window of the vehicle to secure it. The duct is then slid into the window bracket, secured, and then the reflective blanket placed over the duct.
Is the system portable for off-site applications?
The system has the capacity to operate approximately 8 hours without being connected to 110 Volt to charge the batteries and the fuel tank has the capacity of 8 hours of operation as well.
Does the unit produce exhaust fumes?
Yes, the system does produce exhaust fumes; therefore, we suggest that a fume extractor be placed by the exhaust outlet.
Does the heat effect any electronics?
When ambient temperatures reach above 35oC the interior temperature of a vehicle can reach over 56oC as well so the impact is the same as leaving the vehicle n the sun at these temperatures. The system does have a high heat setting to 70oC to stop the heating cycle when this temperature is reached.
Is the operator required to remove any personal items before sterilizing?
Such items that would not fair well when left in a closed vehicle in the hot sun should be removed otherwise items should not be removed.
How long after the sterilization process must the operator wait before using the vehicle again?
Immediately after the Sterilization mode is completed, the vehicle may be driven. The interior will still be warm however it will cool down quickly once started or the doors are left open.
How frequently can a vehicle be sterilized during a 24-hour period?
The vehicle could be sterilized as many times as necessary.
Can this be used to kill other viruses too?
Yes, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), temperatures of over 56°C is enough to kill most viruses.
Can this be used on extended cabs too?
Yes, extended cab vehicles should include the Optional Dual Vent Kit to heat both the front and rear cabs of the vehicle simultaneously.
What application is this not usable for?
The Steril-Therm is limited to vehicle cabs and can be used in many different applications. The limitation is its ability to heat the entire area effectively as well as in a timely manner.
Do I need to close the vehicle vents before sterilization?
The vehicle does not require any alterations before installing the Steril-Therm system.
Is there any maintenance on the heater and/or Steril-Therm in general?
Maintenance should be performed as necessary if the heater smokes while operating and the batteries need to be frequently charged to maintain life and connection maintenance s required.
