Sensors know when a hand approaches

The half century old Japanese firm Saraya remains a leading name for state-of-the-art hygiene products. At Medica the company is demonstrating the UD 1000 sensor dispenser for disinfectant. Global sales figures for this model speak for themselves - 200,000.

‘The battery-operated dispenser is equipped with touch-less technology. Infrared sensors recognise an approaching hand and release the precise volume of disinfectant spray. Thus a constantly high disinfection quality
is guaranteed, and the cost for the disinfectant is optimally controlled,’ the manufacturer explains.  ‘The touch necessary in manual dispenser systems is avoided, which absolutely eliminates the transmission of
nosocomial germs to the dispenser case.’

Based in Brussels, Saraya Europe’s ‘one-stop solutions’ include the UD 1000 dispenser, customised hand and skindisinfectants, as well as the touchless soap dispenser UD 2200, which has suitable liquid soaps. Manual dispensers include the SC 450 toilet seat cleaner, the MD 201 for foam soap and the manual elbow dispensers MDS1000 in aluminium or PP, suitable for hand disinfectant and liquid soap.
