In response to the coronavirus pandemic, Ring Automotive has launched the Ring Auto Expel Misting Machine and Sanitising Liquid.
The machine can be used by technicians on the entire vehicle cabin, including the air-conditioning system, when servicing a vehicle to kill dangerous germs and viruses.
The biocidal formula has reportedly been proven to kill enveloped viruses, such as coronavirus and MRSA, and is suitable for use on all surfaces, including leather and clothes.
The mist machine heats up the sanitising liquid and produces a fine dry mist, leaving no wet residue. Technicians will need to run the machine for five minutes and allow the dry mist to settle for a further 25 minutes, meaning the vehicle will be free from bacteria and viruses within half an hour. To sanitise the vehicle’s air-conditioning system, the recycle air button needs to be switched on to pass the mist through the system.
As well as creating a safe and clean environment for technicians and their customers, the ROHS approved mist machine will freshen the vehicle cabin, removing any unwanted odours.
An alternative option, the Auto Expel Sanitising Spray, has also been made available. Similar to the mist, it is specially formulated to kill germs, viruses and bacteria from all surfaces, including those that are porous or non-porous.
To achieve maximum effect, technicians are recommended to spray the surface with the sanitising liquid and wipe down with a cloth before and after carrying out work.
