The effectiveness of steam:

clean and sanitise naturally

Studies demonstrate the effectiveness of Polti Sani System for steam disinfection

Polti Sani System has been subjected to numerous laboratory tests and studies, both in Italy and abroad, confirming the safe use and effectiveness of Polti Sani System in the reduction of viruses, bacteria, fungi and spores.

Because of all its particular properties Polti Sani System can be used in multiple areas, including industries, transport, hotels, restaurants, healthcare and public places in general. Sani System is a Polti patent.



Here are all the tests carried to demonstrate Polti Sani System effectiveness


Evaluation of the virucidal effectiveness (H1N1) of the Polti Sani System & HPMED Sani System Formula

Biolab Laboratory, Vimodrone (Milan), Italy
The virucidal effectiveness of the Polti Sani System & HPMED was evaluated in accordance with European standard EN 14476 (Quantitative suspension test for the evaluation of virucidal activity in the medical area).
Based on the results obtained, in the experimental condition adopted, the product under consideration Polti Sani System & HPMED - Formula Sani System causes a reduction greater than or equal to 4 Log (99.99%) against Human Influenza Type A (H1N1) after 15 seconds of time or contact.


Evaluation of the bactericidal activity of Polti Sani System & HPMED

Cantonal Institute of Microbiology, Bellinzona, Switzerland
Sanitisation with Polti Sani System was found to be effective to reduce the bacterial load on a work surface previously contaminated with the following micro-organisms: Escherichia coli, coagulase-negative Staphylococcus, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Proteus mirabilis.


Testing the effectiveness of Polti Sani System for eliminating infestations due to Cimex Lectularius

Pest 2000&Pest 3000 - Pest Control Management Services, Milan, Italy

Evidence attests that Polti Sani System kills 100% of eggs and 90% of adult bed bugs at the first pass.
Field tests demonstrated that Polti Sani System has eliminated the Cimex infestation completely in between two and three treatments. The combined use of steam and HPMed also enabled the de-aggregation of the viscous substance that binds the eggs to surfaces, the removal of the typical smell of Cimex and the elimination of the traces due to excrement.


Evaluation of the bactericidal activity of the Polti Sani System & HPMED system against Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)

Cantonal Institute of Microbiology, Bellinzona, Switzerland
The bactericidal activity of Polti Sani System in respect of two strains of Methycillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) has been analysed on different kinds of surfaces.
The use of Polti Sani System for 30 seconds has proved to be effective in sanitising different materials such as stainless steel and melamine table tops, with a reduction of the bacterial load by 4 logarithms, while on ceramic surfaces, a bacterial residue was found for the most resistant strain of MRSA.


Evaluation of inhalation toxicity

Chemservice Laboratory, Milan, Italy
The product is not classified as dangerous according to the provisions of Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 (CLP) and subsequent amendments and adjustments.


Evaluation of antimicrobial activity in hospitals

Orthopaedics and Traumatology Unit and Microbiology Unit, San Carlo Borromeo Hospital, Milan, Italy
Polti Sani System proved to act on several gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria and various types of fungi.
Its anti-microbial activity has been experienced on equipment, in rooms and on inert materials such as plastic, metal and glass. In standard operating conditions, sanitisation carried out with Polti Sani System lead to a reduction of the total microbial load by 91.6%, compared to 88.8% using conventional methods (chemical products).


Effectiveness of Polti Sani System in reducing microbial load on inanimate surfaces

Swinburne University of Technology, Australia
A 30 seconds treatment with Polti Sani System was effective in reducing the microbial load by 99,999% for representative Gram positive bacteria, Gram negative bacteria, filamentous fungi and yeasts.
A 30 seconds treatment with Polti Sani System reduced the load of spores by 97%.


Polti Sani System test on ambulances

Hospital of San Severo - ASL Foggia, Italy
The experimentation of Polti Sani System in real context shows that it is a valid method for the disinfection of ambulances. It significantly reduces the total microbial load present on the surfaces.
