Sterex plasma technology

Sterex plasma technology

A revolutionary innovation for modern drying systems.

Developed for disinfection and odor reduction, Sterex plasma technology is the new standard for modern drying and disinfection solutions. The innovative process works reliably and completely maintenance-free – whether disinfecting room air with WINTERSTEIGER air purifiers or surfaces, equipment, and fabrics with WINTERSTEIGER drying lockers. It removes 99.9 % of viruses and bacteria and reduces unpleasant odors quickly and efficiently. Hygienic drying means greater comfort, increases wellbeing, and helps support good health.

How does the Sterex plasma technology work?

The Sterex plasma technology is a complex process for comprehensive disinfection and reliable elimination of unpleasant odors. How does it work? A high-voltage electrode charges the surrounding air and creates what is called a nonthermal plasma. This is an efficient way to reduce germs – without any chemical additives. Unlike conventional ozone and UVC technology, the materials are not affected in any way.
