Polti S.p.A.,founded in 1978 by Franco Polti, is the leading European manufacturer of steam-based cleaning equipment.
For over thirty years now, Polti S.p.A. has been creating advanced technological solutions for environmental hygiene in the respect of human health and of the environment. This led to the development of an innovative range of steam-based cleaning products known all over the world with the trademark "Vaporetto".
Inspired by these values, firmly rooted in its mission, Polti decided to take the results achieved so far even further and to work jointly with a large number of scientific organisations and institutions in order to identify the greatest risks for human health due to biological contamination and to develop innovative products to solve these problems.
Wherever you find people, the risk of contamination by pathogenic micro-organisms is significant - in hospitals, surgeries, hotels, public transport and schools. It is not sufficient to just provide clean environments. It is also necessary to sanitise: thus lowering the microbial loads and reduce the risk of subsequent infections.
During numerous studies, it has been possible to evaluate accurately the risks of bacterial, fungal and viral contamination in hospital environments and in dental surgeries, where the risk of cross-infections is very high and sanitisation is, therefore, of great importance.
The creation of the Medical Division was based on the company's strategic choice to develop an innovative method of environmental sanitisation which resulted in a revolutionary electro-medical device that has been patented all over the world: Polti Sani System.
Sani System Polti
Sani System is an electro-medical device for high-level sanitisation in environments with a high risk of biological contamination (class 2A medical device for professional use).
It delivers high-temperature (180°C) over-heated dry atomized steam in combination with the sanitising solution HPMed (a hydro-alcohol solution containing sodium metasilicate and sodium carbonate). Polti Sani System lowers the bacterial, fungal and viral loads on surfaces and fabrics to which it is applied, in a few seconds. This way, the risk of cross-infections can be rapidly reduced.
Its unique feature is bringing steam to a high temperature in an expansion chamber in order to atomize it, with a very low moisture content. In this way, it will evaporate quickly from the treated surfaces without leaving any residual moisture behind.
The advantages of using Sani System
Sani System, patented world-wide by Polti S.p.A., was developed on the basis of studies conducted by the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Pavia (Italy), and since then it has undergone numerous laboratory tests and clinical studies, both in Italy and abroad. These studies have shown that Sani System is safe to use and has a high effectiveness in the reduction of the microbial loads, giving better results than those obtainable with conventional sanitising methods.
It lowers the bacterial, fungal and viral load on any type of surface.
Spraying for 30 seconds per square meter is sufficient to eliminate the microbiological contamination from surfaces. The dry atomized steam evaporates within 30 to 45 seconds without leaving any residual behind. There is no need to use conventional chemical disinfectants.
The mixture of steam and HPMed can be released in the presence of people. In addition, it does not require any contact with the surfaces to be sanitised, and therefore eliminates any risk of contamination to and from the operator. It is also safe to use on surfaces and fabrics, with causing any damage. HpMed has been subjected to skin tests.
It reaches all surfaces, even the most inaccessible corners that are difficult to reach with conventional methods, guaranteeing total sanitising of all contaminated areas.
It reduces the costs of chemical surface disinfectants and reduces the costs of infection related consequences.
