TAC XT – application area thermal decontamination

The TAC XT as mobile solution for thermal virus inactivation, HEPA room air filtration and thermal decontamination of surfaces

Multi air handler TAC XT for thermal room and surface decontamination

Powerful thermal disinfector for mobile virus inactivation in rooms and on object's surfaces

Thermal disinfectors have already been reliable means in the cleaning and decontamination area. For example, they are used for disinfecting medical devices as part of a sterilisation process, or for keeping AC systems germ-free in hygienically sensitive areas.

Already during the SARS pandemic, the WHO announced that heat at a temperature of 56 °C represents an effective measure for fighting SARS virions and it will kill 10,000 virus units of the SARS coronavirus every 15 minutes. Regarding "hygiene measures during care and treatment of patients infected with SARS-CoV-2" in the current COVID-19 pandemic situation, the Robert Koch (RKI) also recommended that "thermal disinfection measures shall always be applied preferentially whenever possible" when cleaning and disinfection measures are being carried out.

Portable mobile unit for decontaminating rooms and inventory

Usually, previously available thermal disinfectors are installed stationary. Instead, the multi air handler TAC XT is the first mobile solution for professional thermal room decontamination with integrated H14 HEPA air filtration on the market!

Rather than being installed in only one room, this special "made in Germany" multi air handler (exclusively available only at Trotec) can be used for treating different rooms in alternation. Once the decontamination process has been terminated, the TAC XT can simply be transported to the next location to be treated – this flexible and mobile solution is unbeatable!


Thermal treatment neutralising virulence factors

The resistance of virions is closely related to their structure and chemical components. If only one component that is crucial for cell replication or penetration is being decisively harmed by physical or chemical noxae (substances harmful to virions), the virus will lose its infectivity.

A physical quantity particularly harmful to viruses is heat. All viruses are relatively unstable if they are exposed to heat. From 55 to 70 °C, the proteins of most viruses that are responsible for infections will be denaturised, so are SARS-CoV-1 and SARS-CoV-2. The virus will no longer be able to spread infections.

No virus in its natural milieu will survive heat at temperatures of 80 °C that is directly exposed at the virus particle, apart from parvo- and papovaviruses.

Integrated automatic control system for thermal disinfection

The multi air handler TAC XT can be controlled via touchscreen and is equipped with different automatic programmes, which can be adapted to your needs (e.g. to the respective treatment temperature or exposure times).

The automatic control system will then carry out the thermal activation process during which both room air and contact surfaces of the inventory will e.g. be heated up to ≥ 56 °C for 30 minutes. This will be an efficient inactivation process in the fight against viruses. If required, the treatment duration can be extended from 30 minutes up to 16 hours. Room and surface target temperature can be increased up to 70 °C for special requirements.

Example of a virus inactivation process

The TAC XT offers a wide range of applications for thermal decontamination

Wide range of applications in the area of decontamination

18 kW heating capacity (27 kW optional), a ventilation performance of up to 2,500 m³ that can be adjusted in seven stages and a surface target temperature that can be set to 75 °C max. make the TAC XT a brilliant technological solution for many specific tasks.

The version equipped with the DualDecon blowing-out tower is ideally suited for permanent virus prevention when being alternately used with the thermal inactivation function, H14 HEPA air filtration and the room heating function (as required), and can be used for the most diverse applications:

  • Mobile clinical and hospital systems (containers)
  • Decontamination rooms in hospitals, ambulance and fire stations
  • Roll-off containers of police, fire brigade and aid organisations
  • Treatment rooms, patient or waiting rooms
  • Hotels, hostels and cruise ships
  • Offices, meeting rooms, canteens
  • Public transport (bus and train)
  • Small shops, doctor's surgeries
  • Small school rooms, universities, kindergartens
  • Senior citizens homes, care and rehabilitation facilities

Designed to function as a flexible combined solution, the TAC XT can also be used for thermal disinfestation (mites and bedbugs), for HEPA room air purification or for mobile room heating, providing all-round warmth. This broad range of applications is the perfect base for short payback times.

Application area thermal decontamination – practical benefits:

  • Mobile thermal disinfector for flexible and efficient inactivation of microorganisms in both room air and on surfaces
  • Surface target temperature, adjustable up to 75 °C
  • Also effective against SARS coronavirus, influenza and hepatitis viruses
  • 360° inactivation entirely avoids "blind areas" as they appear during a manual, daily life cleaning procedure with disinfection chemicals
  • All-directional air distribution for an equal heating-up process of surfaces such as walls, wardrobes, beds, tables, chairs etc.
  • Exposure time for surface target temperature can be variably controlled
  • DualDecon function: Alternating use as thermal disinfector or professional HEPA H14 air cleaner for virus filtration in between the decontamination intervals
  • 100 % environmentally friendly, no chemicals, no hazardous substances, very little personal expenses
  • Rooms can be used immediately after decontamination
  • 100 % odourless and free from allergenic substances
