Bobrick Washroom Equipment, Inc., an industry leader in washroom accessories and toilet partitions, announced the launch of its Pure Hygiene Solutions collectionPureDri and PureSphereboth of which are proven to eliminate 99% of bacteria, viruses, mold, and fungi in less than 10 minutes.

“Covid-19 has forever changed the way we work, gather, and clean,” said Matthew Louchheim, president at Bobrick. “As the industry leaders in facility wellness and hygiene, we’ve spent the last two years developing products and design solutions to help minimize the spread of all germs. PureDri Sanitizing Hand Dryer and PureSphere Air Sanitizer are designed for high-traffic restrooms, lounges, and workspaces because they work continuously to create cleaner, fresher air.”

The Science Behind BobrickPure Hygiene Solutions

PureDri and PureSphere technology works by destroying existing microorganisms from bacteria and viruses in the air and on surfaces through continuous sanitization using a 3-step process:

1. Eliminates viruses and bacteria via a germicidal UV lamp that inactivates all microorganisms
2. Neutralizes viral particles through strong oxidizing agents as air passes through the chamber
3. Superoxide ions that neutralize airborne particles, causing them to drop to surfaces below

The PureDri Sanitizing Hand Dryer is a restroom device that protects hands with a blast of super-concentrated ionized air following the drying cycle, while providing continuous sanitization in rooms up to 215 square feet.

PureSphere Air Sanitizer purifies the air continuously using an internal UV lamp and ionic processes. In addition, the unit provides odor control so rooms feel fresh and smell clean.

Bobrick’s Hygiene, Health & Wellness Advisory Board, which includes experts in infection prevention, facility management, healthy design, and manufacturing, worked with three independent research organizations in the United Kingdom including the Health Protection Agency, SGS and University of Leeds. The findings showed the neutralization of a variety of bacteria and viruses including:

  • 100% air disinfection and elimination of E. coli, staphylococcus aureus and aspergillus fumigatus after 1 hour
  • Surface disinfection and bacteria elimination achieved high results after 8, 24, and 48 hours

“The revolutionary UV+ technology of PureDri and PureSphere creates hygienic air and surfaces which promotes wellness and safety when installed in myriad areas such as washrooms, restaurants, workplaces, and classrooms,” added Louchheim. “The safety seal that is included with the installation of PureDri and PureSphere products shows patrons, parents, and employees that they are surrounded by an environment safe from most bacteria and viruses.”
