This DVC-173 Dry Vapor Cleaner System is recommended for SPD/Central Processing Departments, Central Services, Larger Hospitals, and Medical Centers. Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are a major problem in hospitals worldwide. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has estimated that, in the United States, approximately 99,000 deaths each year are related to healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), based on data obtained from multiple healthcare databases. Our DVC Systems are critical for the prevention of HAIs.

This System was specifically designed as a powerful Hospital cleaning system to provide the means to remove anything from a surface: microorganisms, blood, tissue, contaminants, grease, grit, grime, chemicals, and toxins leaving the surface clean, dry, sanitized, and free from chemical residue. It is superior for sanitizing surgical instruments, maternity & crash carts, bag stands, wheelchairs, gurneys, beds, autoclaves, cassettes, and statims.

The noticeable quality of the DVC-173 is its full Medical-grade stainless steel construction.  The case and all of the interior components are stainless steel.  The DVC-173 provides 300ºF, 300 PSI Dry Vapor Steam for approximately 10-12 minutes. It then requires a short 4-minute recharge. It is hand-actuated which allows more control in and around the items being cleaned.

Dry Vapor Cleaning with Purgospray™ technology is your solution to cleaning and sanitizing in Hospital and Medical facilities. Sanitation is a key element in protecting the public from germs, pathogens, and harmful bacteria that can lead to serious illness. The Medical industry traditionally uses strong cleaning and sanitizing lines and programs to eliminate each kind of bacteria and virus. Traditional sanitizing is a two-stage process: first, the initial cleaning with water and detergents; second, disinfecting with the aid of harsh chemicals such as chlorine, iodine, quaternary ammonium salts, acid, and formaldehyde-based substances.  Adopting an effective cleaning and sanitizing program is crucial to eliminating pathogens from surfaces and equipment. The extreme heat of the DVC-173 Dry Vapor Cleaner System kills microorganisms and sanitizes while eliminating the need for chemicals.  It reduces the downtime required to perform maintenance and sanitation. This proven scientific process is the single most effective and environmentally friendly method of sanitizing virtually any surface. Dry Vapor Cleaner Systems clean and sanitize leaving no chemical residue behind.

Unquestionably, the DVC-173 will help you clean more effectively but, will also save you time, money, and eliminate chemicals, solvents, toxins, and wastewater from your cleaning process.

    5 minutes into the demonstration of the DVC and I saw what it could do to clean my engine room and diamond plate; I had to have one!

    Thank you for the DVC cleaner which we have used since 2015. During this time we have been able to see the benefits of the DVC when decontaminating difficult to clean surgical instruments as well as cleaning an autoclave. We find the DVC to be easy to use and it makes short work of items such as flexible reamers, laparoscopic instruments, and of course, our autoclave.
