EHC GLOBAL, a manufacturer of components, technical services, and integrated solutions to the vertical transportation industry, announces the introduction of its LED UV-C Handrail Sterilization Solution for escalators and moving walks. The compact LED UV-C Handrail Sterilization Module is mounted internally, which provides several key advantages over externally mounted devices, including the elimination of risks and costs associated with entrapment (fingers, clothing); damage caused by impact, vandalism, theft, and unnecessary downtime; and the obstruction of ingress and egress access on escalators and moving walks. Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) utilizing UV-C technology has been proven effective against pathogens such as bacteria and viruses by penetrating their cells and damaging the DNA or RNA that contain their genetic code. When properly installed by a licensed technician, the LED UV-C Handrail Sterilization Module will not compromise the structural integrity, performance, or warranty of NT thermoplastic polyurethane or TufFlex rubber handrail.

LOCHINVAR, a manufacturer of high-efficiency boilers and water heaters, announces that it is growing its trusted line of ARMOR Condensing Water Heaters. Five new models, ranging from 399,000 to 1 million BTU/hr, will join five models from 1.25 to 4 million BTU/hr.

EARTHSAFE has further enhanced its infection prevention solutions with the addition of the EvaClean Dry Wipes System. Powered by PUR•ONE, a broad-spectrum chemistry that works for everything from daily cleaning to floor disinfection, EvaClean disposable environmental surface wipes eliminate the potential for cross-contamination that woven wipes can cause. The EvaClean Dry Wipes System is designed for use with PUR•ONE cleaner and disinfectant. This United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA)-registered product has over 50 kill claims, including Clostridioides difficile (C. diff), MRSA, and of course, emerging pathogens such as COVID-19. PUR•ONE was also the first chemical with a registered kill claim against bacteria present in biofilm, a dangerous concern particularly in healthcare settings. In keeping with healthier approaches to disinfection, EarthSafe uses only NaDCC-based chemistries in the EvaClean system, which create hypochlorous acid (HOCl) when mixed with tap water, are pH neutral, and are safer for surfaces as well as for housekeeping personnel. Moreover, PUR•ONE is biodegradable and eco-friendly. For more additional detail contact EarthSafe at evaclean.com.
