General

Cold plasma is an ionized gas consisting of different particles. Some of these parts are the so-called hydroxyl radicals. These have a disinfecting effect. They have been shown to dry out the cell walls of native bacteria and enveloped viruses (such as SARS-CoV-2). Only ambient air and electricity are required to generate cold plasma. The cold plasma is generated in our devices using a special and patented cold plasma source. There is a corresponding explanatory video on our YouTube channel.

Microbiological effectiveness tests according to DIN-EN 1500 were carried out. The tests show that 99.99% (Air Sanitizer) and 99.999% (Hand Sanitizer) of native bacteria and enveloped viruses are eliminated. Properly performed hand disinfection according to EN 1500 reduces the germ load to such an extent that the remaining germs no longer pose a potential risk. Cold plasma also has the important property of removing odor molecules.

The effectiveness of the products has been confirmed by German accredited laboratories based on DIN-EN 1500. Furthermore, tests regarding electromagnetic compatibility (EMW) and electrical safety were carried out by German accredited laboratories. Detailed test reports and certificates are available for this.

Yes, there are worldwide patents.

Yes, the tests were carried out by a German accredited laboratory.

No. Our devices draw in minimal amounts of ambient air and pass it through the atmospheric cold plasma source. The aim is to generate the hydroxyl radicals, which have been proven to have a disinfecting effect. German accredited laboratories have tested and confirmed that the devices are demonstrably harmless to health.

Hand Sanitizer

Our hand sanitizer comes fully equipped (includes air filter, reusable water bottle with 500ml distilled water, valve cap and power supply). All that is required is a normal socket and a suitable place. In addition, we offer a rolling base or a wall mount.

First, the filter must be inserted on the underside of the device. Then the valve cap is screwed onto the bottle instead of the normal cap. The bottle can then be placed vertically in the device with the blue valve cap facing down. Before the device is started, the cover cap must be placed on the device. The device can be switched on using the on/off button. The device is now ready for use. The disinfection process starts automatically as soon as the user places the hands in the device. Detailed assembly instructions can be found on our YouTube channel.

The Hand Sanitizer is available in the basic edition with a White & Blue enclosure and bilingual instructions in German/English. Alternatively, for a more exclusive ambience, there is the Black & Gold Edition with a matt black and gold enclosure.

When the device is switched on, the device buzzes briefly and the on/off button lights up orange. As soon as this lights up green, the device is in standby mode and only starts the official disinfection process if it is activated by the built-in sensors in the two openings. If the hands or any objects (e.g., mobile phone) are held in at least one of the two openings, the process starts automatically. A fine mist appears.

The Hand Sanitizer only requires ambient air, electricity and distilled water. The power consumption in standby is approx. 2.3 W. In operation, this is a maximum of 43 W. With a usage time of 15 s, this corresponds to 0.18 Wh per application. More than 1,000 applications can already be realized with 500 ml of distilled water.

The orange light flashes when water needs to be refilled.

In principle, the use of distilled water prevents calcification of the device. Therefore, water with a conductivity of less than 10 μS/cm should be used. Classic, over-the-counter distilled or demineralized water usually meets these requirements.

Once the water is empty, the reusable bottle simply needs to be refilled. The Hand Sanitizer basically works for about 5 years. In order to extend the service life of the device, we recommend changing the filter on the bottom of the device every six months. The filters are available from WK-MedTec.

The water should be removed from the device via the water outlet (see operating instructions).

In this case, please contact us or the authorized service partner (see operating instructions), we will immediately take care of a proper repair or a replacement device.

The examinations are based on certain medical standards (EN 60601-1:2006 +A1:2013 and EN60601-1-2:2015). Furthermore, the EU directives 2014/35/EU (about electromagnetic compatibility) and 2014/30/EU (about electrical equipment for use within certain voltage limits) are met.

The unique blend of cold plasma with nebulized water increases effectiveness on hands and other objects. The fine mist reaches every little spot and even gets under jewelry and fingernails. Objects such as mobile phones, keys and jewelry are not damaged. So there is no discoloration of skin and metal. In addition, the automatic and easy handling ensures higher process reliability. Our patented technology only eliminates the “bad” germs. Your own skin flora is not affected, which keeps your hands soft and healthy. Did you know that plasma technology is also used to heal wounds? This means that it is also beneficial for damaged and injured skin. Alcohol-based agents cause an unpleasant burning sensation, long-term destruction of the important skin flora and thus dry, cracked and irritated skin. The Hand Sanitizer’s durability and easy maintenance further saves money in the long run. At the same time, the Hand Sanitizer is a great alternative to normal hand washing, which unfortunately is too often not done properly. This also saves water.

Our Hand Sanitizer was developed before the outbreak of the global corona pandemic and was therefore intended from the outset to revolutionize hand hygiene and make it sustainable. Nevertheless, we are currently in a global emergency, so we generally recommend placing the Hand Sanitizer wherever strangers gather, for example in entrance, transit and waiting areas. Our recommendation is aimed at hotels, restaurants, event locations, cultural institutions, massage and beauty salons, educational institutions, airports, retail, apartment and office complexes and much, much more. We are also in favor of widespread use in sectors in which a particularly high level of hygiene must be guaranteed, such as in care, for visitors to hospitals and doctor’s offices or employees in restaurant kitchens and in industry. The number of necessary devices depends on the spatial conditions and visitor frequency. We would be happy to discuss this with you individually.

Air Sanitizer

Our Air Sanitizer eliminates native bacteria, enveloped viruses, pollen, mold and odors in real time, whisper-quiet and maintenance-free.

Our Air Sanitizer is shipped securely packaged together with the power supply. Only electricity is required. Alternatively, the small Air Sanitizer can be easily mounted on the wall with the usual tools.

The Air Sanitizer only has to be connected to the normal electricity using the power supply unit. The device can be switched on using touch operation.

The Air Sanitizer is available in a Basic and a Pro version. Both require a standard 240V (50/60Hz) power supply. Both Air Sanitizers have touch controls. The devices differ as follows:

Air Sanitizer BlueTaction: 21 x 21.5 x 14 cm / 2.0 kg / 6 W / 22 dB / for rooms up to 40 m²

Air Sanitizer BlueTaction Pro: 27 x 21.5 x 65 cm / 5.0 kg / 10 W / 32dB / for rooms up to 90 m²

The cold plasma cannot be felt and is “flowed” into the room almost silently. Still, you can hear a faint hum. If you hold your hand a few centimeters in front of the device, you can also feel a minimal cold draft. It is initially characterized by a “clinical” smell, which is caused by the oxidation of bacteria and viruses.

An oxidative process takes place during the elimination of existing viruses, bacteria and odor molecules. This creates the “clinical” smell. This odor can develop, especially in the first few hours. In the long term, however, there is real-time disinfection, so that there is little oxidation and odor development. The Air Sanitizer is proven to produce fresh air – standing right next to the device feels like you’re standing next to a waterfall. The smell will go away after a few days. The great advantage of the Air Sanitizer is that other odors are greatly reduced, e.g., from smoking or cooking. It also ensures pleasant air in rooms that are difficult to ventilate or in rooms in old buildings.

The Air Sanitizers are completely maintenance-free! There are no filters full of viruses and bacteria that have to be disposed of (in a specific hazardous waste!). We recommend vacuuming the ventilation slots with a standard vacuum cleaner approximately every three months. Our Air Sanitizer lasts about eight years.

In this case, please contact us or our service partner (see operating instructions). We will immediately take care of a replacement device or a proper repair.

Our Air Sanitizers are designed to make people feel safe again in closed rooms – even without a mask. We want to make indoor air hygiene more sustainable. We are currently in a global emergency, so we generally recommend placing the Air Sanitizer wherever many people, especially people who are strangers to each other, gather, for example in waiting areas, any institutions, hotels, restaurants, event locations, cultural facilities, massage and beauty salons , education, retail, offices and many, many more. The imagination knows no limits. We strongly advocate a nationwide deployment to use another tool for a pandemic-free future. At the same time, the Air Sanitizers are particularly well suited for public toilets and restaurant kitchens, in particular because of the odor elimination. Private customers can also make their own homes a little bit safer. The number of devices required depends on the spatial conditions. We would be happy to discuss this with you individually.

The Air Sanitizer works continuously and eliminates in real time. Likewise, no waste products are generated, as is the case with devices with Hepa filters, for example. The Air Sanitizers are completely maintenance-free and consume very little electricity. They are also mobile and light, instead of being big, heavy and bulky. The barely noticeable hum does not affect learning, working or sleeping.
