The FIRST SANITIZING BIN that thanks to a combined uvc and ozone process allows a disinfection of virus and bacteria and the inertization of smells and molds reaching even the innermost and shaded waste parts. KOSMOS™ can be used for TNT protective devices disposal, such as facial filtering devices, overshoes, caps and gloves, or any type of compostable, sorted or unsorted waste that may have been contaminated or is biologically active, such as containers or packaging for drinks or food, nappies (inside nursery schools, rest areas), food (inside canteen, fast foods, restaurants).
KOSMOS™ guarantees that waste are correctly disposed, that are not accidentally reused, that they are not dispersed in the environment, that there is no proliferation of molds, viruses, bacteria, smells inside the collection bags and therefore that the health of the storage and disposal places is maintained.
The purpose of KOSMOS™ is to prevent that products potentially infected with Covid-19 and in any case full of organic, bacterial or viral load, are stored without any health management practices. Accumulating devices of many people in a container and in the potential presence of humidity or other conditions favorable to proliferation can lead to the generation of a small ecosystem in which the risks of contagion multiply.
KOSMOS™ is a stable and solid bin, entirely built in stainless steel. It can be used in an industrial and civil context. It has a maximum consumption of 50W / h and a 230Vac power supply.
This process prevents the proliferation of mold, bacteria, viruses and guarantees the correct and safe disposal of disposable devices.
KOSMOS™ has a maximum size of L. 51 x P. 58 x H.110 cm (in the one- bag version) or L. 85 x P. 58 x H.110 cm (in the two- bags version)
Using KOSMOS™ is simple and intuitive: the user can open KOSMOS™ with a pedal and without touching any part of the machine, he can throw up to two types of waste inside it, such as, for example, indifferentiable or differentiable (including DPI in TNT synthetic material, paper, plastic).
KOSMOS™ contains one or two collection bags, each of 110Lt, therefore it is possible to differentiate two types of waste.
Releasing the pedal, KOSMOS™ closes and starts the inerting cycle without the need for any type of operation by the user.
In a completely automatic way, waste is inerted with a cycle regulated by a timer through the combined action of UV-C rays and ozone and stored in two collection bags, each of 110Lt.
The combination of ultraviolet rays (UVC) and ozone allows a high disinfection of viruses and bacteria, reaching even the innermost and shaded parts, which are not irradiated by UV rays.
The effectiveness of this technology is also reported in the Covid-19 Report - n. 25/2020 issued by the Italian Istituto Superiore di Sanità, as well as attested by various scientific studies.
Once the collection bags have been filled, it will now be possible to open the lower door, closed with a safety key, and to extract the garbage bags, close them and confer them.
Thanks to KOSMOS you can be sure that potentially contaminated waste (masks, gloves, bottles of water, take-away food packaging) are disposed of correctly, that they are not accidentally reused, that they are not dispersed in the environment, that there is no proliferation of molds, viruses, bacteria, smells inside the collection bags and therefore that the health of the storage and disposal places is maintained.
The germicidal ultraviolet radiation, is a known sterilization method that uses ultraviolet light at the UV-C wavelength, which modifies the DNA or RNA of microorganisms and therefore prevents them from reproducing or being harmful. It is used in various applications, such as the disinfection of food, water and air.
Equally known is ozone as an energetic oxidant. Thanks to its power it is used as a disinfectant, deodorant, bactericide and sterilizer, in general for the disinfection of water, in the food and pharmaceutical fields, for the sanitization of the air in environments and in air conditioning and ventilation systems, in medicine in the treatment of bacterial or fungal infections.
The combination of ultraviolet rays (UVC) and ozone allows a high disinfection of viruses and bacteria, reaching even the innermost and shaded parts, which are not irradiates by UV rays.
The effectiveness of this technology is also reported in the Covid-19 Report of Italian Institute of Health - n. 25/2020, as well as attested by various scientific studies.
The KOSMOS™ BIO INERTIZERS is a device suitable for the industrial and civil context for the disposal of potentially contaminated, undifferentiable or differentiable waste, including also specific disposable device for Covid-19 health management. BIO INERTIZERS use UV-C and Ozone technology to disinfect the waste that is thrown into them.
The current regulatory landscape, which requires the use of specific personal protective equipment for Covid-19 health management (masks, gloves, protective glasses, disposable coveralls), implies the responsible and precautionary management of personal protective equipment used inside especially companies, but also in highly frequented places and private environments.
For example, the Italian Institute of Health in the Covid-19 Report- n. 26/2020, regardless of the classification code of the waste, recommends "to use containers dedicated to the collection of disposable masks and gloves" and "to adopt containers or in any case solutions that minimize the possibility of direct contact of the worker who gets rid of the mask / glove with the waste and the container itself". Furthermore "the containers must be such as to ensure adequate ventilation to prevent the formation of potential condensation and consequent potential development of microorganisms, and preferably located in premises with adequate exchange of air and in any case protected from meteoric events".
Waste from personal protective equipment used in compliance with health requirements to counter the health emergency caused by the COVID-19 infection implies special management since the correct denomination of the waste must be guaranteed, which is the responsibility of the Producer and puts at the same time Administrators / Legal Representatives / Safety Managers and Environmental Managers in the face of disputes regarding the waste management or the management of possible accidents at work caused by infections for COVID-19.
As can be seen from the extensive existing scientific documentation, exposure to UVC rays and ozone for a certain time and concentration, you get:
In the KOSMOS BIO INERTIZERS there is an exposure to UVC and a confined concentration of ozone that exceed those identified at a scientific level. For this reason, the use of BIO INERTIZERS in the disposal of potentially contaminated waste ensures:
The user can open KOSMOS™ with a pedal and without touching any part of the machine, he can throw the waste to be disposed of inside.
In addition to the management of used personal protective equipment, the KOSMOS™ BIO INERTIZER can also be used for the safe and odorless disposal of all types of waste (plastic, paper, disposable, wet towels, etc.)
KOSMOS™ are simple and easy to maintain; ordinary cleaning can be performed safely by a single operator. The waste collection compartments can only be opened with a key and by authorized personnel.
