- Set pressure 3 bar
- The compressor must be adequately able to operate continuously.
Where should vehicle disinfection be carried out?
Disinfection should be carried out in well-ventilated internal areas or outside (not in the rain) at an ambient temperature of 20-25 °C. Direct sunlight and an internal vehicle temperature of over 25 °C are to be avoided.
What must I pay attention to when disinfecting the air conditioning or the vehicle?
The vehicle’s passenger-compartment air filter should be removed prior to disinfection and be replaced by a new one after disinfection has been carried out. The mist should also be fed directly into the air intake ducts in order to ensure adequate distribution of the medium throughout the air-conditioning system. The vehicle manufacturer’s instructions must be observed. In general, the vehicle must always be thoroughly cleaned before disinfection.
